will pay for good music

I've made some great musical purchases lately and wanted to share them with you/encourage you to make the same purchases. I like to think my taste in music isn't too shabby. Some of these I've highlighted on my song-a-day Tumblr...but only hearing one song from any one of these artists will not do your life justice. 
Paying for good music that will define your days is never a bad thing. 
Treat yo self.

ColdplayMylo Xyloto 
Chris Martin with that open-face piano. Just enjoy it.

M83Hurry Up We're Dreaming 
Your head might spin...but in a great way. 
This album is slowly becoming somewhat of an obsession.  

Allen StoneAllen Stone 
Homeboy can siiinnng. And he's performing on Conan!   
GungorGhosts Upon the Earth 
Lead singer Michael Gungor sums it up best: 
“Musically, it’s kind of odd. We rock pretty hard, 
then we pull out the banjo and sit around and cry together.”  
NeuloreApples & Eve 
Their first album as a whole tells the heart-wrenching story of the "fractured space between the original man and woman," written from Adam's perspective to Eve.  
And one that I'm quite thrilled to purchase on its quickly approaching release date of November 1...
Florence + The MachineCeremonials

Awwww, my favorite professor in college is the big sister to Josh Garrels. I went through a terrible terrible time at one point in college and she gave me his album as a gift of comfort. Since then it is my go to album whenever I'm having a hard time. Love Josh Garrels!

Yeah, Coldplay still rocks my world. Love these suggestions! I am in need of a music library facelift. :)

I love Florence so much. If you ever get a chance to see her perform live, do of the best shows I've been to!

Ahh, I love Florence + the machine. Counting down.

So glad you know how to pull out the good stuff. Thanks for this 'spidattering' of interesting music (…that I probably wouldn't have heard otherwise).

Josh Garrels' cool, 10 stringed instrument might be a Bolivian charango—not positive. Whatever it is, the sound is wonderful.
