Voices

Very few things have consistently been able to stir up that strong fleeting feeling of chills running through my body stronger than music. But not just music...voices. Zach Condon of Beirut has a voice so eerily good that every single time I listen, it is as though I am being impressed for the first time, over and over and over again.



Colin Meloy of the Decemberists also has a wonderfully nasal voice (no, not an oxymoron!) that never ceases to achieve greatness. In his case, I sometimes wonder if it is his storytelling tone that I enjoy so much or the voice itself. Regardless, pure pleasure should not be tampered with, so I will discontinue my overthinking on that issue for now.



Of course, I could go on about voices that bring chills all night, but right now, specifically, Zach Condon is my fucking hero.

Oh, aaaand, Of Montreal and Deerhoof are both releasing new albums on the same day this year in October. MMMMMMM GOOD!!!

I've had a couple friends try to get me into Beirut. I haven't ever sat down and listened to a whole album though. Where should I start?
