Tune in Tuesday

481520_put_the_records_on

Tune In Tuesday is a weekly feature in which bloggers get to showcase another one of their loves, music! The feature was originally created and hosted by Ginger over at GReads! but can now be found over at Kate’s Tales of Books and Bands.


Bridge
My first pick is to celebrate the release of Jeri Smith-Ready’s novella Bridge. A beautiful story told from Logan’s (a character from her Shade trilogy) POV. He’s a ghost that’s having a hard time moving on and this song is just perfect for him. Makes me weepy though.

Ghost by Charlene Soraia



Now just a few new songs that I’ve been listening to. They’re all a little different than what I usually listen to.

Elephant – Tame Impala: a little odd but I like it.



Can’t Hold Us - Macklemore and Ryan Lewis: Fun elliptical song. They played on the Colbert Report (interview) last week and I really liked them. You probably know them from the song Thrift Shop but a lot of their lyrics touch on social issues like in this performance.



Breezeblocks – alt-J: Hated it – now I like it. It grows on you.



Tessellate – alt-J: This has a bit of a slow start but I love it.

  5. Yay Alt-J! I love both Breezeblocks and Tesselate. I hated Breezeblocks at first too. Tesselate is still probably my fav of theirs. I haven't listened to their Spotify sessions yet but I want to

    1. They're an acquired sound lol I'm starting to like Tesselate more than Breezeblocks.

      They were supposed to come to Orlando but canceled. :-(

  6. Yay, love these posts of yours because I always find new music to get into! Agree about Breezeblocks - took me a while to get into, as well. Love the Tame Impala song!

    1. That song annoys due so much at first then one day I was like "I love this song what is it?" lol It's weird how that happens.

  9. That Ghost song is absolutely AMAZING and even though I haven't had a chance to read Bridge yet, I can see how it would fit Logan's story perfectly! Great music choices this week :)

  10. Oh my word, that IS a perfect song for Logan!! Oh poor, poor Logan.

    So THAT'S what that song is! I've been hearing Elephant at work apparently and couldn't figure out what it was called or who sang it. Thanks for sharing it this week so I could know! Oh! I also think I really like Tessellate... :)

  11. Wow, great choices! I've never actually listened to the Macklemore song (have seen it everywhere, though lol), and I like it. It does sound like it would be great to exercise to :). Also, one of your songs gave me an idea for my next Tune in Tuesday, so thanks!!

  12. I'm currently reading Jeri's book Bad to the Bone; trying to actually finish that series! LOL It's great though. Love this feature. I'm always trying to find songs that fit the books I'm reading! I don't believe I know most of these though...gotta love new finds!
