Music Monday - Aishling's Picks

I will start this blog off with new Mastodon! Woo!

Mastodon - High Road

Steve played this new song the other day and I actually didn't know it was them because when I tuned into it I heard the chorus first. The chorus sounds like it could be from some 70s or 80s classic or progressive rock band. I can definitely see this being one of my favourite summer songs this year. Love it!

Lana Del Rey - West Coast

I'm slowly warming to Lana. She is very hyped and I find a lot of her songs over played but I listened and watched a good few songs and videos of hers and really liked quite a lots of them. I especially love her video for Ride (Song starts at around the 3 min mark. Bikers, yes please :P) This is her new one and I really do like it. It's very relaxing and nice for summer I think. The video (I don't think it's the official one even though I wish it was) is just repeating the same clip and I love it. It works well.

Arctic Monkeys - R U Mine

When I listened to this song first I went "meh" and cursed the title and said to myself "can they not spell?" Hahaa! :D Anyhow I decided to give it a second chance and then a third and then I couldn't stop playing it and I still can't. I love it!

The Black Keys - Little Black Submarines

This is by far my favorite song by The Black Keys. I never listened to them before and it really took me a long time to finally get around to listening to their album El Camino. The only thing negative I would say about it is so many of the songs are on ads so it kind of ruins it for me as I've heard bits of the songs so much already. But this song. That build up till half way. Just love it.

Brody Dalle - Blood In Gutters

Brody's new stuff is slowly coming out and oh my how I loves it. I do hope she tours here because I really want to see her live! She's bloody amazing.

Babes in Toyland - He's My Thing

I had Babes in Toyland on my old iPod but somehow they didn't end up on my new iPod so I'm rediscovering them again and I think I love them more now than I ever did. This song is one of my favourites!

Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Sacrilege

I love this song so much. The video that goes along with it is just perfect. I love the editing style and its worth the watch just for that!

Nirvana - School (Live At Reading 1992)

I will end with Nirvana seeing as the 20th anniversary of Kurt's death wasn't long ago. I will never not be sad about the fact that I will never see them live. I've had this song stuck in my head a few times over the last while so I'll go with it. RIP Kurt.

I have been listening to lots more but if I included them this would be an endless list! What have you guys been listening to? Anything in my list that you like yourself?

I will have another blog post up very soon.
Thanks for reading & listening!


  1. Yay Mastodon!! Can't go wrong with them :). Steve loves Arctic Monkeys but they have always got on my nerves. This is one of the few songs by them that I actually like though!!

    I can't remember the last time I even thought about Brody Dalle! That song was good and imagine how talented her and Josh Homme's babies must be? They should make a family album haha! I never clocked that it was Lily Cole in the Sacrilege video! Love that song :D

    Also, my mother saw Nirvana live. And my dad saw Queen. So I pretty much hate them both haha! So unfair :(

    I like the name Music Monday! Would love to see more posts like this. From both of ye! xx

  2. OMG so jealous of your mother and father!

  3. I think Arctic Monkeys have changed their music style a bit recently! I love all their stuff though! You should give their latest album AM a go though and see what you think! :)

    I've been following Brody Dalle for awhile now! She had her band Spinnerette before she went solo and I love her stuff! That family will be seriously talented haha! :D

    Your mother saw Nirvana live??!! OMG I'm forever jealous of her and your father!!!! OMG imagine seeing either of them! Crazy!

    Thanks so much for reading and listening! Will try and get Music Monday up ever Monday now! :)
