I wanted to write about a couple fun thoughts I’ve had about music lately. A while ago when we were all texting I mentioned that John Gourley is my favorite vocalist in music. So it made me wonder who my favorite vocalists are. So here is my list of favorite singers:
- John Gourley (Portugal. The Man)
- Angel Olsen
- Rayland Baxter
- Dave Bayley (Glass Animals)
- Josh Tillman (Father John Misty)
It was really hard not to just pick my favorite bands but Arcade Fire, The Head and the Heart, Childish Gambino, and Local Natives didn’t quite make the cut. Although Portugal. The Man and Angel Olsen are both in my top 6 artists at the moment.
When you guys saw Lord Huron it made me think about my favorite bands that I’ve never seen live. So I’m going to do another ranking to reflect that. I really enjoy lists/rankings. So here is the list of my favorite acts that I’ve never seen live.
- Angel Olsen
- Glass Animals
- Vampire Weekend
- Lord Huron
- Sylvan Esso
The nice thing about this list is I have tickets to see Angel Olsen, Glass Animals, and Sylvan Esso in the next few months.
Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of the new Portugal. The Man album, new Arcade Fire album, and people I’m going to see this fall (Lucy Dacus, Sylvan Esso, Shakey Graves, Arcade Fire, Father John Misty, War on Drugs, and ACL).
