Almost, Always, All Yours Mix

I assumed it was the trucks outside that suddenly woke me, but as I listened to their grunting engines the familiar pain set in and I knew I was widely awake because I'd dreamt about him again. The nice part about having a friend on the opposite coast is that you can text them at 4am and get a response, he called back and we talked. We haven't been together in years but have been good at talking weekly for half a decade now, despite living multiple continents apart at times. But things have suddenly changed, as they are wont to do right before you are about to pack up your life in order to make things perfect again. "I'm sorry, I'm sorry" he almost whispered "me too" I whispered back before he hung up. We texted each other the same thing right after, there were four and a half years of apologies we'd been holding back. Sometimes sorry is the only word you have left.

Every once in a while we need to indulge our should've beens that wake us up in the middle of the night and it's always best, like any event, to have a soundtrack for that. Here's my current one which probably makes little sense, or maybe it's showing all my cards because it's highly personal, but the songs are great whether you're attached to them or not.

Daughter - Still

Like so many of their other songs, this one hurts your heart, and of course is just as beautifully woven as those other Daughter songs we've come to love. This is the first single off their debut album, If You Leave, due out March 18th.

Grand Theft Bus - No Easy Way

Grand Theft Bus is a Canadian band from New Brunswick, with an eclectic and quirky bunch of songs since they started in 2010. It's one of those bands that releases something and you have no idea what you'll come across, I like that. Today it happens to be 'No Easy Way' from their 2012 album, Say It With Me.

Tiger Waves - Fields

Austin band, Tiger Waves, previously released the fun summer song 'Weekends' that was one of my favorite songs of 2012. Their kickstarter to sponsor their tour was successful and they are about to embark on a three week tour that takes them all over the eastern and central US. They will be putting out their sophomore album sometime in the next six months so keep an eye out, you won't want to miss it.

Patrick James - All About To Change

Sometimes all you want is a new life to unfold in front of you and songs like this will make you litter the room with your wanting sighs.  Hopefully that change is just around the corner. Patrick James is a 19 year old Australian whose charming folk/pop music sounds much more mature than his age would lead you to believe.

Evening Chorus - Blue Stone Heart

Cardiff based band, Evening Chorus, always keeps you interested throughout their songs with their a cappella bits and song arrangements. This is one worth listening to through the end, it won't be hard.

Ruler - Keep Moving

Widower - Jumper Cables

It takes real talent to compare your heart to a shopping cart in the first lyrics on an album, but Widower gets away with it earnestly singing "Sometimes your heart is shaky as a shopping cart" on their new album Fool Moon. The album is full of sincerity and lyrics to make you swoon as well as bring you crashing back to your most recent heartbreak. The album is out today and should be purchased on bandcamp immediately.
