Hello, everyone. I know it’s been a while, since I’ve posted. Oh the joys of being swamped with work. Anywho….Here is this week’s list of amazing songs. Enjoy!

Cory Branan- The Corner

5. Cory Branan- The Corner
From Southhaven, Mississippi, Cory Branan delivers vocals and lyrics that strike straight at your soul. With The Corner, Branan delivers honest lyrics and a soothing guitar arrangement. The song is one of my favorite off of Mutt which was released in May of 2012. Cory is currently preparing for a summer tour, which you can check out here.

The Lonely Wild- Closer Than The Needle

4. The Lonely Wild- Closer than the Needle
I came across The Lonely Wild at a SoFar show in March, and was immediately impressed by them. Their song, Closer than the Needle, gripped at my heart and refused to let go. The lyrics and arrangement are haunting and real. Completely relatable if you have ever felt that depth of loneliness. The song is featured on the band’s latest release, The Sun As It Comes.

Matt Corby- Brother

3. Matt Corby- Brother
Brother by Matt Corby has been on rotation for the last week. Though it is not a new song, it has certainly spoken to me recently. Corby’s amazing voice and addicting arrangement come together to feature the refreshingly honest lyrics. Definitely one of my favorites off of the Into the Flame EP.

Of Monsters and Men- Little Talks

2. Of Monsters and Men– Little Talks
I’m in love with this song. Seriously, I can’t stop listening to it. The vocals, upbeat arrangement, and heartfelt lyrics come together perfectly. Little Talks is a song that is relatable to me on so many levels that it is almost eerie. Definitely worth a listen or five.

The Gaslight Anthem- Unwritten

1. Gaslight Anthem- Handwritten
The Gaslight Anthem is a band that I recently discovered, and I can’t figure out how it has taken this long for me to hear about this band. Hailing from New Jersey, and signed with Mercury, Gaslight Anthem has many amazing songs on their Handwritten album. One of my favorites is the title track. Handwritten features some of the most amazing lyrics I have heard in a long time. The arrangement is catchy, and lead singer Brian Fallons has some amazing pipes. Do yourself a favor and just press play.

Cheers!
