I need music.

With long days of travel on the horizon, I am looking to beef up my ipod. I'm really not all that picky about music, so all genres are welcome. It's not that I don't care, I have just never been a person that seeks out a new sound or is in the know of upcoming artists. If you can't tell already, I'm a lot more into writing, cooking, and sewing than I've ever been about music, so I need your help! Anyone! If I get at least two people to suggest something, I will be ecstatic, but of course the more I get the less I need to be at the mercy of whatever in-flight movie Continental is playing.

Oh, and podcasts are more than welcome as well!

So far, Death Cab for Cutie has been recommended. Albums: Transatlanticism, Photo Album, and Plans. And "Passenger Seat" from Transatlanticism, I'm told, is a tear-jerker. I do like a good emotional song every once in a while, so I can't wait to hear it. A longtime favorite emotional song has been "The Blower's Daughter" by Damien Rice. I never get tired of that song.

Looking forward to suggestions! I know you have some!!

Jack Johnson is pretty good. I like to listen to him when I run. Kalai is good as well. Especially his first two albums.

I love Rachel Yamagata and Madeleine Peyroux. Imogen Heap is fun if a bit different. I was also really impressed with Katharine McPhee's album (runner up on American Idol a season or so ago) if you like more pop stuff.

oh gosh, i have tons of music recs. I love Ryan Adams right now, and Patty Griffin, for blues-y vibes. Harvey Danger is awesome, and local, for more indie-pop/emo. Iron and Wine's latest album is amazing for mellow. I love Loney, Dear, which is indie pop out of Sweden. Other faves: Margot and the Nuclear So & Sos, Rilo Kiley, The New Pornographers.

And for nostaglia, nothing beats The Cure and Morrissey for me.
