Thursday Tunes #1

The great thing about taking the train everywhere is that you have the perfect backdrop for new music. Here are the songs I discovered this week. While I never name favorites, Eugene spoke to me like no other song in this list. The chime-like acoustic melody accompanied by the raw and heartfelt voice of Sufjan brought me to an introspective state, staring at the passing scenery with a profound sense of regret. I choked back the tears.

  1. “Eugene” – Sufjan Stevens
  2. “First Love Never Dies” – Soko
  3. “St. Jude” – Florence + the Machines
  4. “Change is Everything” – Son Lux
  5. “Specks” – Matt Pond PA
  6. “Landfill” – Daughter
  7. “Between the Bars” – Elliott Smith
