Seven Harmonies

Whenever I find something particular awesome I feel the need to make other people know. There is nothing like some harmony to get the blood going. I think that is why folk music is so appealing to me.
A lot of these are live and involve talking so you may have to skip to the singing part. But if you ever liked harmonies, listen to these seven songs.

For Emma, Bon Iver. Basically I can't believe I lived without this song up until a few days ago.

I Could be There for You, Eisley. We saw them on this tour and my breath was like gone.

Feel it in my Bones, Tegan and Sara. Seeing live videos of them on Youtube has convinced me that I need to see them or else. Darn you well-known bands who charge a lot otherwise you couldn't eat. :(

Poison and Wine, The Civil Wars. These two voices together make me feel like I died and went to heaven.

Blue Ridge Mountain, Fleet Foxes. Live harmonies that haven't been mixed or altered or hidden under instrumentation are the best.

Yo Mama, Peggy Sue and the Sea. Basically I want to marry their music.

Skinny Bones, The Ditty Bops. Their epic old-timey music makes me feel weak in the knees. Oh, harmonnnnies.

In other news I threw-up at work today. Now that I got that out of the way the rest of my adult like should be relatively easy.
