(Reader's Choice) music loves / vlog day

Hey guys, hey.

This has been a fun week of catering the posts to your requests - thanks for playing/reading alongToday's topic - 'music I love' was requested by my Aussie e-pal Gayna, and I also attempted to placate Nicole's request for another vlog....

...but then this happened:

Soooo, anyways.
Basically, I love me some good mellow (indie) folk music most days.
I'm pretty much dedicated to IRON & WINE as my adult form of lullaby music.
*SWELL SEASON (you gotta watch the movie: ONCE).
*MUMFORD & SONS (I know, like every other person in the world now...)
*SIGUR ROS (love painting to this band).
Ummmm.. ok, I'll stop there, you get the idea.
I'm not a huge music connoisseur to say the least, but I know what I like when I hear it.. and then I just hit 'replay' again and again.

Speaking of hitting play ~ I made you a 'mel's mellow mix' to listen to today!
So now you can hear what I love... [here]. 
You're welcome.

Now that you know my music style.. what's yours?  Any new bands you want to throw my way?

Happy weekend friends!
Mel ;o)

    Thanks for "placating" me. ;)

    I love Sigar Ros! It's my winter morning music. I love walking to work in the crisp air, with blue skies and everything sparkling in the sunlight while listening to them. It's so peaceful.

  4. Love this!! I knew you would introduce me to some tunes I've not heard before! I have an unexpected day off today and an awesome play list to go with it! Could my day get any better? And it's only 730 in the morning!! Thanks! Hope your cold gets better sweets!
