Anyone who has been a reader of my blog for very long knows that I love music. I have a treble clef tattoo on my back to prove it. ;] I used to sporadically share music on my blog now and then, but because it’s such a big part of my life (and my husband’s!) I think I want to make it a more permanent fixture here on the blog! So, I introduce to you; Lovely Tunes Tuesday. (There are already so many Music Mondays out there, ya’ll!) I’m sure that the bands and artists that I share here wont be brand new for a lot of you- but then again maybe they will!
And we’re starting with one of my current favorites: The Gaslight Anthem.
I’ve been listening to The Gaslight Anthem for about a year or so and after my first listen or two they quickly shot to the top of my current favorites list. And unlike a lot of bands that I really like at first, they’ve stayed at the top of that list! Sink or Swim, one of their earlier albums, is my absolute favorite! A lyric from the first song off of that album, “Boom Boxes and Dictionaries”, is one that I hold very near and dear to my heart and so naturally, there is a tattoo in the works! ;]*
I know that they’re by no means unheard of, but give them a listen if you haven’t had the pleasure already- and if you have, praise them in the comments and tell me what they mean to you!
*I really wanted to take more time with my first Lovely Tunes Tuesday post, but it’s already quite late and almost midnight- thus making it Wednesday! I would love to share more backstory and details about the artists in the future! But, I think as far as this particular band goes- their music really speaks for them! No need for my input!
