Hey guys! I hope you all had a great time over Christmas. On Christmas, I got all the records I asked for and was honestly so thankful. Music is such a big part of my life, and I have been listening to them for the majority of the break. For this post, I wanted to share each artist's record that I received and a little bit about why I like them. Each artist has probably been mentioned before because I have an obsession, but here ya go.

1. Ben Howard- Every Kingdom: I wrote a post about Ben before but goodness gracious I adore this man. He is in my top five favorite artists, and his music is mature and poetic. Read my previous post if you want to know more.

2. Bastille- Bad Blood: The lead singer Dan Smith has amazing vocals, and he has written every song on the album. The songs have great beats, cool allusions, and interesting meanings.

3. HAIM- Days Are Gone: HAIM are a girl group that right now I cannot get enough of. They have been taking the world by storm lately. Their super catchy songs are fun to dance to and maybe in the privacy of your own house, sing at the top of your lungs.

4. Arctic Monkeys- AM: Arctic Monkeys are an indie rock band with cool, sometimes controversial music. They have been around for awhile and just get better and better with every album.

5. Gabrielle Aplin- English Rain: Gabrielle Aplin sings songs that you can relate to. I remember the first song I had ever listened to by her was called "Please Don't Say You Love Me". Upon hearing the title, I burst out laughing, but after hearing the true meaning of the song (I'm not ruining it for you go look it up and listen for yourself), I fell in love with her.

6. Mumford and Sons- Sigh No More: The first record I had ever bought was Babel. I had always wanted Mumford and Sons' debut album, but I had just never gotten around to it. I'm glad I did, because "I Gave You All" is by far my favorite Mumford and Sons' song.

7.The 1975- The 1975: My first ever post on this blog was about The 1975, and I finally got them on vinyl. I love them. They are rocky, kinda weird, and most of the time you cannot understand what the lead singer, Matt Healy, is saying, but their music is unique and out there in just the right ways.

8. Ed Sheeran- +: Last but not least Ed Sheeran. I haven't technically got this record yet because Amazon sucks, but I know it is on its way. Ed Sheeran is a lyrical genius and before I go too far and start writing sonnets about his ginger hair, I'm just gonna say go check out his song "I See Fire" for the new Hobbit movie. It's perfect.

And with that, I hope you guys had a great Christmas and party like an animal for New Years.
