This past Monday I sweet talked my way into a tour of an important recording studio in Belfast that’s been used to record pretty much every important musician from Ireland, and it inspired this Irish tinged #MusicMonday playlist. It’s full of my favorite rainy day tunes and heavy on The National, because what better band is there to listen to in the constant rain?
Like most of you, I was not emotionally prepared for the recent release of the Adele song. But after listening to it 600 times and spending 2 weeks in the dreary rain, I think I’m finally immune to it. A few of my favorite Irish men are sprinkled in here, but the standout tracks are the first two. The Jack Garratt song is being played at a rate of 30 times per day, and I recommend avoiding the BANKS & Grey Reverend songs if you’re going through a breakup of any kind. I don’t want to be responsible if you hurl yourself off a cliff.
