On Sunday, my friends and I took a little 8 hour journey drive home from the UP after some 4th of July shenanigans. As far as music in my car goes, you have two options: radio or CDs. Usually I opt for the radio, but after a weekend in a cabin with only bug spray, beer and white bread I did not have the energy to constantly scan the radio as we drove in and out of reach of different stations. Luckily, my friend has an extensive collection of CDs. The sun was setting and we were all feeling peaceful after a nature-filled weekend, but sad that we had to leave all it’s beauty behind. Band of Horses’ Acoustic at the Ryman played in the background and completed the movie scene we seemed to be unknowingly a part of. Ever since then I have been listening to them – dreaming of log cabins, hammocks, and infinite forests ~
Who would have guessed that I’d pick a Tigers Jaw track for Jam of the Day? Charmer, released in early June of this year, is their first full length album since 2010. I had already heard the singles, but I listened to it for the first time all the way through last week on my all too often drive from East Lansing to Sterling Heights. And then I listened to it again. And again. Cool is the first track on the album, and it’s my favorite to sing along to. I hope that it rips your heart to shreds the way it does mine ;-*

For this week’s jam of the day I’m throwing it back to the ’13, with Blood Orange – You’re Not Good Enough. Not only is Dev Hynes talented in so many ways, but this album of his in 2013 rocked my world. The song itself is so catchy and reminds me that you never have to settle, as corny as that is. So in order to represent my sentimental feelings towards this album, I’m making this the Jam of the Day.
