You can see week 1 of this project here.
The songs for this week are:
No Key, No Plan by Okkervil RiverIn the Aeroplane Over the Sea by Neutral Milk Honey
Passing Afternoon by Iron and Wine
I Feel Like the Mother of the World by Smog
Where the Birds Always Sing by The Cure
Okay, I really liked the songs from last week to the point where I have explored them a bit more. This week... I didn't love the songs. I think it is partly my mood, though. If I listened to them a couple more times each they would probably grow on me. I am pretty sure 'Passing Afternoon' was on an episode of House, and I liked it when I heard it in that context. The thing with me and music is I could hear all five of this songs next week and think they are the greatest things ever. There are some bands I listen to now that I hated in the beginning. (Rush for example.)
Why do I know it is my mood more than anything? Because afterwards I put on music I know I enjoy and wasn't really interested in that either. Hopefully next week will go a bit better for me! You should still checkout the songs if you have never heard of them before.
