Most Listened to Music of 2013

Continuing this mini-series of “best-of 2013”, here is our family’s favorite, most-listened to music of this past year.

Allen’s Favorite Music

 

1. Gungor

When I first heard Gungor, it was love and first listen! They are most known for their song Beautiful Things, which we used for our family update. Gungor is made up of eclectic styles, beautiful melodies, and thoughtful Christian lyrics. Most morning I wake up to Brother Moongive it a listen:

2. Bastille

I recently stumbled upon the Britt band, Bastille. I love their 80 electric sound with Queen-like harmonies and Muse-like melody lines. There is not a bad track on their new album, Bad Blood. I look forward to listening to the tribal song, Pompeii, on Easter Island!

3. Liquid Mind

Since my study is at my house, I’m always looking for ways to cancel the noise of squealing girls playing in the rooms. However, I can’t just listen to any music with rhythm, lyrics, or dynamics. That’s why Liquid Mind perfectly fits the bill: peaceful, ambient, rhythmless sounds that helps me focus while studying.

2. I Will Wait by Mumford & Sons

Kids Favorites Music

1. Cimorelli

Last year we discovered a 6 sister singing group called, Cimorelli. Our 4 daughters can identify and love singing their songs. Here is one of their favorites, Made in America.

2. The Trinity Band

Our friend from the Netherlands, Albert den Oudsten, introduced us to a Dutch Christian group called The Trinity Band. What is unique about these guys, is that several of the brothers grew up in Peru and learned many of the same songs we sing in church. Here is their funnest song, Fiesta Celestial (Heavenly Party) – our favorite song for camp this year.

3. Britt Nicole

Our girls have also enjoyed Britt Nicole. Here is her most popular track, Gold.

  1. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and everything. Nevertheless
    think of if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this site could undeniably be one of the
    most beneficial in its field. Wonderful blog!
