Nothing Ever Happens If You Leave The Party Too Soon

This week I was perusing Spotify and I came across multiple things that were worthy of sharing... And I couldn't choose just one.

First up, Rachel Platten. If you listen to top 40 radio you have probably heard her song "1000 Ships". It's a cute song, very peppy, girlish, and lovey; so I thought I would check out the rest of her album.

Rachel is a pop singer/songwriter with an occasional bit of folk influence. Like Sunday Lane, a couple weeks ago, Rachel's primary instrument is the piano, which I always find lovely. My favorite track is "Nothing Ever Happens".
This clip is kind of long, but it's got a live version of Nothing Ever Happens followed by a cover of Snoop Dogg's Gin and Juice. Believe me, it's worth the six minutes.

Second, First Aid Kit's "Emmylou". I haven't had enough time to really check out First Aid Kit's albums, nor do I know much about them at all... But I know I love this song. Although I must say I'm not a huge fan on the name First Aid Kit....

And last but not least, The Fray came out with a new album yesterday. I've loved The Fray since high school, way back in the "Over My Head" days. We even titled our Senior Class blood drive after one of their songs (How To Save A Life) haha. Only got to listen through the album once, and it was at work so I couldn't focus on it to really listen... But if it's anything like their other albums I'm sure I'll love it.

As always, I would love to hear what you are listening to lately =) Happy Wednesday!


  1. I love the Fray too and I agree, not a fan of the name "First Aid Kit." Kinda turns me off a little bit.

  2. I didn't realize Sweden had such folksy music... they were on Perez a few days ago! And loving Rachel Patten :) Good find!
