As you might notice, Tuesday is music day here at Out of Time. While this blog is mainly a book blog, I consider myself musically inclined and I wanted to incorporate that into my blogging!
I started going on 8tracks and recently made my own playlist. In my opinion, it's pretty cool! What I did was center it around the song "How to be a Heartbreaker" by Marina and the Diamonds where I got to play a character of a narcissistic heartbreaker in choosing the songs on the playlist. Check it out!
I would also LOVE your thoughts on this playlist because I've never made any before and this took half a week [to find the songs.]
Which brings me to the topic of the post!
I'm looking for music recommendations. I don't care what genre.
Indie, electro, acoustic covers, remixes, LAY IT ON ME! I'm not the kind of person who goes "I don't like..." because even if I say that, there's going to be an artist in that genre that I do like. An example would be "I don't like country..." but I like Elle King and she's country. [She also sounds like Meghan Trainor but I don't like Meghan...]
The only thing I ask is that you try to rec artists that are a little lesser known. Obviously, if you say "Beyonce, Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift" it's a little unhelpful since I already know/listen to them.
I'd really like artist recommendations primarily so I can look for myself but if there's a song that you fangirl over, PLEASE let me know!
And now it's my turn. If you're looking for music recs...
From 8tracks, I've found a bunch of artists that aren't very well known but are amazing. Please check out Halsey [there's a reason I put her first...], Fractures, XOV [this song is for Mockingjay... so BOOKS!], Bad Suns, Lykke Li, XYLØ [PLEASE CHECK THEM OUT... THEY'RE NEW], Daughter, Smallpools or Yeah Yeah Yeahs. I've linked my fave songs.
I'm not telling what genre of music they are because I feel like people have biases towards certain genres, writing them off as "I'm going to hate this." At least, that's me when my friends are trying to get me to listen to hip hop. I will tell you, however, that they're all DIFERRENT. I have indie with electro and some pop-rock. LOVE ME.
