Tune in Tuesday: Sampling My (Sounds Like) American Playlist
It’s Tuesday, it’s Tune in Tuesday, the day I share music with y’all.
And since it’s May still, Ginger at GReads! has declared this to be random playlist month, so today y’all are getting a sampling of five songs from my (Sounds like) Americana playlist on Spotify.
This is a weird little playlist, in that it started out as very alt-folk, rootsy kind of stuff and has become a little less that and a little more alt-indie sounds. And then I realized a bunch of bands on the playlist, originally called Americana for reasons that I don’t really know how to defend, aren’t actually American.
Because, you know, we live in an international world these days and a group British boys and Icelandic musicians have learned how to play the banjo to confuse our brains. How dare they. (I’m totally kidding. I want everyone to play the banjo.)
So here it is, a sampling of my annoyingly titled (Sounds like) Americana playlist.
1. Die Die Die—Avett Brothers
2. Slow and Steady—Of Monsters and Men (They are from ICELAND. I like this information.)
3. Hundred Dollars—Punch Brothers
4. I Love You, But I Don’t Know What to Say—Ryan Adams
5. My Father’s Father—The Civil Wars
Et voila! A Tuesday playlist for this Tune in Tuesday.
