Do You Hear What I Hear? Part 3

So I've posted about the music on my MP3 player in March and then again in May.  These are my latest downloads that I am loving at the moment.

Don't summer and music just go together?


If I loved You - By Delta Rae

Delta Rae is a folk/rock band out of Durham, NC (not the lead singer as you would think by the name).  The band consists of three siblings, Ian, Eric and Brittany Holljes.  The band name actually hails from a fictional story their mother intended on writing about a Southern girl named Delta Rae who summoned the Greek gods to earth.

Bright Stars Burning - By Hey Marseilles 

This band hails from Seattle, WA and was founded in 2006 when playing together as students at the University of Washington.   With the release of their second full-length album, "Lines We Trace" the group is beginning to get more national attention.

 Royals - By Lorde

Ella Yelich-O'Connor is known by her stage name of Lorde and is a 16 year old from New Zealand.  She released her first EP, The Love Club, online in December 2012, featuring 5 songs including this number one hit.


From a Window Seat - By Dawes

This band from Los Angeles is composed of two brothers, Taylor and Griffin Goldsmith along with Wylie Gelber (bass) and Tay Strathairn (keyboards) and is part of the Laurel Canyon sound which influenced such artists as Crosby, Stills, and Nash, Jim Morrison and Neil Young.  On February 8th, 2013, the band released this song, "From a Window Seat" from their third album (which was released on April 9, 2013).
