Music on Repeat

My iTunes is so overloaded with new music right now that I don’t even know what to do. Here’s what’s on repeat at the moment:

Forget the Storm – Tyler Hilton

I bought this album the morning it came out. It’s been a really long time that I’ve had an album on repeat for weeks on end but this one makes the list. I’ve been a big fan of Tyler since his single “Picture Perfect”. A friend of mine from Toronto introduced me to the song back in 2004 and when he started appearing on One Tree Hill I got to experience his music on a different level. This album is hands down my favorite though. You’ll Ask For Me & Jenny have become two of the most played songs on my iTunes. I also can’t get enough of Leave Him which reminds me a bit of Michael Buble. I’ve had Jason listening to this album every single time we get into the car. He’s starting to know all the words now too..a very rare thing. I’m absolutely devastated that I can’t see him on May 19th in Ottawa. Caitlin and I were discussing a  road trip two months before any of these Canadian dates were announced and now both of us will be out of town for it. Looks like we’ll be hopping in a car when we’re both back!

Kids In the Streets – The All American Rejects

This is the first AAR album that I haven’t completely freaked out over. Don’t get me wrong, I still adored some of the songs on first play but their past albums have appealed to me more. When I saw them live a week ago it changed my mind completely. I can’t stop listening to the album now. Someday’s Gone is such a good song to blare on your speakers and I For You is one of the prettiest songs I’ve ever heard. During the interview I also got the chance to tell Tyson how much I adored Heartbeats Slowing Down and he promised to play it live during the show for the first time ever. He did in the encore and I smiled like a little girl for the full 3 minutes. If it takes you some time to get into this album I recommend you keep at it..because it pays off. It’s also so nice to see how much Tyson as matured and despite him still being completely insane, he also knows how to bring himself down.

Walk the Talk EP – William Beckett

I was so heartbroken when I found out The Academy Is… was breaking up. Especially a month before I was supposed to see them in concert. It made it a big easier when I found out that William Beckett would continue to make music. He released his EP a few days ago and it’s just like I expected it to be. His voice is so unique and easy to listen to. I’m so excited to see him on May 13th. I’m also a bit sad that the album is ONLY 4 songs. I’m ready for more!

Love is a Four Letter Word – Jason Mraz

I bought tickets to go see Jason Mraz for the very first time in concert this coming September with Melissa. I don’t even know why I’ve never see him live. I’ve always been a fan of his music and his new album doesn’t disappoint at all. I haven’t had the chance to listen to it a lot yet but so far I’m completely hooked on Everything is Sound and The Woman I Love. Not to mention I can’t get enough of I Won’t Give Up.

On Your Side – A Rocket to the Moon

I am so happy I finally got to see these guys live. It was about 4 years ago that I randomly came across their EP on iTunes. It was only a few songs but I absolutely loved their sound. For some reason I never followed up on their music and didn’t even know that they had a full length album out! So when I saw them open for AAR last week I got to hear their new music. I came home and immediately bought the album off of iTunes. I’ve been driving Jason insane with the replays of Baby Blue Eyes and Like We Used To. I actually almost started crying when I heard Like We Used to Live. The lyrics are heartbreaking. I was also so stoked to see Dakota on the album!

The Slumdon Bridge EP- Yelawolf ft Ed Sheeran

Yeah I went and bought this album on iTunes. There’s something that appeals to me so much when a rapper works with someone who has as beautiful a voice as Ed Sheeran. While Yelawolf is not my choice for artist of the year, he manages to make this EP really neat. I surprised myself by the amount of times I’ve listened to it.
