Top 8 Indie/Folk Songs
Indie Folk

I love music, especially classic rock and indie/folk! So, I went through my Pandora likes, Spotify playlists, and even my ITunes most played and compiled a list! Here are my Top 8 indie/folk songs at the moment!

8. Believe- Mumford and Sons

Mumford and Sons is an iconic band, and has been since I was in high school and "Little Lion Man" was all the rage. Over the summer I went to a concert and was happy to find hundreds of other people who were just as passionate about these guys as I am!

7. There's A Place- The All American Rejects

Totally out of character for this band, but nevertheless brilliant. give it a listen!

6. Cherry Wine- Hozier

To be honest, Hozier repeats on the radio during my commute to home so much, it starts to grate my nerves a bit. However, when I hear a song like "Cherry Wine".. I can't help but replay it!

5. Best That I Can- Vance Joy

I could pretty much list all of Vance Joy's songs here, but "Best That I Can" is definitely a stand out. It is absolutely brilliant!

4. I Can't Go On Without You- Kaleo

Kaleo is an underground indie/folk band from Iceland. They have stunning music videos, an incredible sound and very unique vocals. If you like anything on this list, you'll probably appreciate them!

3. Give me Something- Seafret

This song is the kind of chilling that makes you want to stand on a windy mountainside, overlooking the overcast scenery with a thoughtful expression. That is to say, it's one of the most inspiring songs I've ever heard.

2. Angela- The Lumineers

It was extremely hard to pick a Lumineers song, however, "Angela" is one of my most listened to as of late. I have also seen The Lumineers live, and it was one of the best nights of my life, and definitely the best concert I've ever been to. (Wesley Schultz grabbed my hand!) In any case, if you haven't heard of them or their new album, "Cleopatra", you need to reevaluate your life choices and listen to them immediately.

1. Childhood Ghosts- Joseph Charles Mettler

Joseph Mettler is a member of the band "Rabbit in the Rye", which is also one of my favorite bands, but I wanted to cite this song in particular, which is a solo piece by him. Joe also happens to be my neighbor, and I have known the family for most of my life. Personal relationships aside, I still have to cite "Childhood Ghosts" as my most listened to song lately, as well as the rest of "The Rabbit in The Rye's" music. If you enjoy anything on this list, check them out! You won't regret it!

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
