A Good Reason to Grow Old

 A Good Reason To Grow Old

(compiled Aug 11, 2014)

LONG OVERDUE and MASSIVE playlist inspired by new album releases (Mogwai, Owl John, George Ezra, Sun Kil Moon, Young the Giant, Angus & Julia Stone, Spoon), new singles by Catfish and the Bottlemen and Beats Antique, and epic covers by Chet Faker and Asgeir. Young the Giant, George Ezra, Spoon, Mogwai, and Owl John were all bands/artists that I had seen play in the past few months, but the more recent gigs of the good ole’ Scottsman —Mogwai and Owl John– have got to be my favorites.  It was the first time I had ever seen Mogwai live and they absolutely BLEW MY MIND (see my Mogwai review). And, as if I didn’t think it possible following the success of Pedestrian Verse, Scott Hutchinson of Frightened Rabbit outdoes himself yet again with his new solo project, Owl John. I’m LOVING the new album and I really hope the FRabbits will fly as Owls on their next tour (see my Owl John review).  xxx
