YOLO List: Week 30


Although I’m sorry to have had to push the YOLO list to today, I’m pretty glad I did. Last night marked a milestone for indie music. If you haven’t heard already, Arcade Fire took the award for Album of the Year at the 53rd Annual Grammy’s beating Eminem, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, and Lady Antebellum! It took awhile for the magnitude of this to hit me, but the top40s music world just took sharp turn towards open mindedness. I only wish they chose more approachable songs to play to that crowd (i.e. The Suburbs). I’m excited to see where music goes in the coming years and even moreso to see Arcade Fire perform a headlining set at Coachella! If you want to see my post on them with my favorite songs, go here. Anyhow, I’m looking forward to the YOLO mentions this week, because I stumbled on some quality tunes. Here’s to 30 weeks! #proudofmyself #nottwitter
