Autumn Tunes

It’s been months but I’m finally doing the Frage Foto Freitag (Question Photo Friday) hosted by Ohhh Mhhh again. This time slightly different though.
No pictures this time but you can look here for some autumn themed shots (more to come as soon as I have time to post them :))

Here are five songs I cannot get enough from right now. Some have been favourites for a while now and been my personal soundtrack throughout the summer, others I have just recently discovered (okay, okay, J. forced me to listen to Haim, I confess).

Resolution by Matt Corby

Brave by Sara Bareilles

Bonfire Heart by James Blunt

Things We Lost in the Fire by Bastille

The Wire by Haim

Tunes: Matt Corby

I’ve been introduced to Matt Corby in February 2011 when he played at a Songs from a Room gig I was lucky to attend. I will blog about that experience some time, I’m sure.
I loved his performance. It was so pure and raw and gorgeous. I’ve been following him on and off ever since and I’m really fond of his music.

Tunes: Brother and Bones


Jack, who blogs over at the Edge of Noise, practically forced me to listen to one of their songs ages ago. At first I couldn’t quite get into it. I couldn’t tell you why but I think I just wasn’t in the right mood. A few weeks later though I clicked on the link again and I was hooked.

I really wanted to link you to “Don’t forget to pray” but apparently, youtube won’t let me see that video, ergo I can’t link you to it either. Chances are that if you don’t live in Austria, you’ll be able to find it without any troubles on youtube :)

Tunes: The Staves

In April 2010 I went to London for a weekend. A friend and I had tickets to see Joshua Radin for one night. He is absolutely lovely and a pleasure to listen to. However, what really blew me away was the pure and utter talent of his support acts.

The Staves are three sisters who sing in pure harmony. They are so, so lovely. I never tire of listening to their songs. After the show I bought their album, which only had 3 tracks on it. I went home to google and youtube them and came up empty handed. I only found a few live videos, nothing more. Now they’re more well known – and if anyone deserves it, it’s them.
