Yeasayer - Madder Red

anonymous asked:

hey, this may be an odd question for an art blog but i was wondering if you have any music recommendations? i loved your in dreams video so much (the art was amazing!) and i also really loved the song so i ended up buying it, and i was just wondering if you know any other songs like it? i dont often find music i like as much as i like this song, something about it makes me feel like im out exploring a forest somewhere (perf song choice for trc obviously)

Okay, my favorite genre is music that makes me feel like I’m out exploring a forest somewhere, so this really resounded with me… and I may have gone a little overboard. If you like In Dreams, ofc the rest of Ben Howard’s stuff is worth checking out. Otherwise, here’s a giant chunk of songs that I feel are similar to In Dreams, or at least give me the same vibe:

Iron (Woodkid), Nomads (Joe Banfi), God’s Whisper (Raury), The Predatory Wasp Of The Palisades Is Out To Get Us! (Sufjan Stevens), Death with Dignity (Sufjan Stevens), Hunger of the Pine (alt-J), Spectrum (Florence + The Machine), Seven Devils (Florence + The Machine), Welcome Home (Radical Face), Broken Crown (Mumford & Sons), Snake Eyes (Mumford & Sons), Youth (Daughter), Sticks & Stones (Jónsi), Where No One Goes (Jónsi), Down the Line (José González), I Followed Fires (Matthew and the Atlas), Wolf & I (Oh Land), Into the Unknown (Blackchords), Panda (Ewert and the Two Dragons), Everything In Its Right Place (Radiohead), FOOLS (Troye Sivan), Let Me Go (HAIM), From the Woods (James Vincent McMorrow), The Last Goodbye (Billy Boyd), I See Fire (Ed Sheeran), Luxor (The Mast), Madder Red (Yeasayer), A Horse With No Name (America), Elijah’s Chant (Anna Aaron), Prelude 12/21 (AFI)

(Lastly, if you dig the feeling of trc, Maggie’s TRK playlist is really good and hurts my heart in all the right ways.)
