Sweet, sweet music

First and foremost, I'm now the proud owner of a 13'' Macbook Pro (with retina display). It is the loveliest computer ever and I'm typing this post on it as we speak. :) It's so sleek and it'll be such a help in college.

Furthermore, I love music. A lot. Any chance I get to be alone listening to music is such a wonderful time for me. Whether it be in my car, on my phone, in my room listening to my record player, or listening to Spotify on my computer I love to surround myself with music. Listening to music is my time to zone out and think. Daydream, to be exact. ;) Music is inspirational. A few years ago I discovered the indie music scene and have been in love with it ever since. I used to listen to a lot of mainstream bands (and I still do like a few), but indie music is unique and special. I could never get tired of listening to the music I listen to because it is all unique and different and that's what I love about it. It stands out and sounds's not fake like a Britney Spears or Miley Cyrus song. I mean of course some of the electronic/dance indie music may not be "real" music, but whatever. It sounds different than the typical stuff heard on the radio which is what I like. But, can I just throw out there how stupid Miley Cyrus' new song is? Like what the heck is going on in her music video? Anyways, below are some of my summer favorites right now. I'll also list some of the bands (among many) that I love. Enjoy! <3

What I love: Needtobreathe, Vampire Weekend, Empire of the Sun, Discovery, Reptar, Bombay Bicycle Club, Youngblood Hawke, Wild Nothing, The Lumineers, Simon and Garfunkel, Paul Simon, The Beatles, Grouplove, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, The Drums, Daft Punk, Animal Collective, Andrew Bird, Beirut, and Sleigh Bells.
