As much as I love to find and explore new music, I often find myself neglecting to keep up with the bands that I couldn’t get enough of a few years ago. Peter Bjorn & John is one of those bands. I listened to their album Writer’s Block almost nonstop in college, and then just sort of lost track of them. They put on an awesome show in Houston some time ago, and I realized I didn’t recognize a handful of the songs – I had been missing out! They put out a new album in 2011, Gimme Some, which incorporates everything I loved about them in college – upbeat tracks, fun hooks, unique vocals. I’m so happy they are back on my radar 🙂 Here are a couple of my favorites from Gimme Some:
Do any of you struggle with keeping up with all of the amazing musical talent out there? I think I will start making it a monthly act to check up on all of my old favorites.
