I spent Saturday evening playing with an app for the iPhone that takes photos with a vintage look through filters and processing. I had a blast! As I scrolled through the photos I took, I found myself in the mood for modern music with a vintage feel.
That was the starting point for this playlist, anyway, but it ebbs and flows from there as any mix should. This week's playlist begins with Messages by Xavier Rudd, which sounds to me like the sort of song Paul Simon could have recorded 30 or 40 years ago.
"I know you are strong, may your journey be long, and now I wish you the best of luck."
Messages is a gem.
If Timshel by Mumford & Sons appeals to you at all, you really need to hear their entire CD "Sigh No More" because it is simply brilliant. Here's an iTunes Store link. Definitely check it out.
