Tunes Tuesday- City and Colour

city and colour

So because I failed and forgot to schedule (and draft) a post for Music Monday, you all get Tunes Tuesday instead. Anyway, I wanted to focus on the new City and Colour album because I just saw them on friday at the Fox Theater in Oakland! FYI, I absolutely LOVE that theater, its one of the most beautiful places ever I’ve seen live music at. Also, it wins my heart because the Fox has a bar on every level and an additional bar attached to the building, which means no lines! Yay! No judging guys, I really hate lines.

I fell in love with City and Colour when I realized Alexisonfire wasn’t putting out anything new anymore and Dallas Green had started this as a side project. My friend Steve, who had introduced me to Alexisonfire also introduced me to City and Colour, and I’m so glad because I love anything Dallas does basically. ┬áSo here we go, first an Alexisonfire song for context, and an old City and Colour because I’m too lazy to check and see if I’ve talked about them before.

Alexisonfire – ” This Could Be Anywhere In The World”

City and Colour – “Coming Home” (first album “Sometimes”)

My favorites from the new album “The Hurry and The Harm”

“The Lonely Life”

“Thirst”

“Death’s Song”

Honorable Mention goes to “The Golden State” mostly because its about California and its nicely done, although the live version was SO MUCH BETTER than the album version.

Music Monday: lets start the week off on a good note

I’ve been going through some personal-life stuff that I’d rather not discuss, but I’ve sorta been relying on music this past week to help me cope escape since I’m not quite ready to get outside and go shoot some rolls- plus its been 100 degrees all week. But this week the forecast is 80s and much happier, bout friggin time. Anyway, here are some of my favorites from this week, some are old some are new some are… well just give them a chance– they may not be profound but they got me through this crappy week. Happy Monday.

Katy Perry – “E.T.” (Johnson Somerset & John Monkman Remix)

City and Colour – “off by heart” (honestly anything by city and colour is amazing, I just picked this song for you to listen)

DJ Fresh – “Fight”

Eyedea & Abilities – “Smile”

Phantogram – “When I’m Small”
