I feel like poop and have to go to work in a bit, so just a quick little music Monday post for your listening and viewing pleasure:
Two songs I can't get enough of right now, and the stunning videos to accompany them.
First, The Paper Kites: These folks are from our home away from home, Australia, and we had the pleasure of getting to know a couple of them two years ago. They are wonderful people and their music is infectious. So as the Aussies say, give it a go - and then do it again and again and again, because you won't be able to stop listening.
Worth another mention - the video was directed by Pete Seamons, another Aussie acquaintance we've gotten to know over the last couple years. It's really beautiful, isn't it?
Second, The Civil Wars: this duo resides in our current home of Nashville and they are freakin amazing! This video has been out for some time, but I can't stop listening. I'm very excited for their new album to come out in February, it will be a must buy! Plus, you may have seen them kill it on Jay Leno a couple weeks ago. Betcha can't listen just once.
The female half of The Civil Wars is Joy Williams, who achieved considerable success playing Christian music years ago. It just so happens that Curt & I danced to one of her songs as our first dance at our wedding :)
That's all for now, hope you enjoyed the tunes. And I hope you are all feeling better than I am so you can have a fantastic start to the week!
