I don’t listen to the radio much, so I don’t know what the song of the summer is, but these are the albums that I have playing on repeat.
Elle King: Love Stuff
Favorite Song: America’s Sweetheart
Why: This song always lifts my mood! A friend recommended that I check out the album, and once I bought it I realized I had already “shazamed” America’s Sweetheart. But the entire album has a great energy. If you like Grace Potter, you’ll be into Elle King.
Kacey Musgraves: Pageant Material
Favorite Song: Family is Family
Why: I connect with basically every song on this album. I loved Kacey’s first album, and saw her open for Katy Perry last summer. I’m constantly looking at her website for shows I could road trip to, but there hasn’t been a good option yet. (When she was in Minnesota, I was in Florida, go figure).
Casey Abrams: Casey Abrams
Favorite Song: Hit the Road Jack
Why: I found this album by “shazam”ing the songs Great Bright Morning and Get Out. This is a great album for when you don’t know what a situation is. If you aren’t necessarily partying, not on a date, just need some solid background music that sounds familiar but isn’t the same old songs that are always played.
Finding Neverland: “The Album” and “Original Broadway Cast Recording”
Favorite Song: Stronger (both versions)
Why: Mainly because I saw the production when I was in New York. But I would recommend “The Album” for anyone! The “Original Broadway Cast Recording” is really for people who LOVE musicals. The theme of Finding Neverland is believing. It’s all about doing what hasn’t been done before, and not listening the naysayers in your life.
Do you still buy albums? Or do you stick with the singles?
