These are some of my favorite soft songs. No descriptions for these, just music.
05. Wedding / Funeral (Anchor and Braille)
04. Your Song [Ellie Goulding (Elton John cover)]
03. The Unwinding Cable Car (Anberlin)
02. Seven Seas (Golden Youth)
01. Frail (Jars of Clay)
That’s it for now! Enjoy the music.
As always, the music is saved to this Spotify playlist, so check it out if you have the program or app!
It’s time for another music post! I’m focusing on some of my favorite folk-type music. Feel free to link to your own favorites in the comments!

05. I Will Wait (Mumford & Sons)
This one was on the radio quite a bit, so you’ve probably heard it, but if not, this is a really neat English folk-rock song with an upbeat pace and great vocals.
04. November (Trampled by Turtles)
Ok, this one is a bluegrass song–with a fake start. ‘nough said.
03. The Outsiders (NEEDTOBREATHE)
Yes, their name is usually typed IN ALL CAPS. Don’t ask me why. This song was really popular on my dorm floor about a year ago.
02. Here and Heaven [The Goat Rodeo Sessions (Various Artists)]
This is off of a really cool compilation album with some really great artists. The full listing for this song includes Stuart Duncan, Aoife O’Donovan, Chris Thile, Yo-Yo Ma, and Edgar Meyer.
01. Lylacs (Pioneer)
(I had to post this one as a Bandcamp embedd, as their songs are not on Youtube.) If you haven’t heard of Pioneer, don’t worry, I can’t find much on the band themselves. The whole album is pretty neat, though.
That wraps up this edition of Monthly Awesome XK Music and Stuff! As always, the music is saved to this Spotify playlist, so check it out if you have the program or app!
I’m sure that a question has often haunted your minds–in the deepest hours of thought and most profound moments of inspiration, a nagging feeling that just won’t go away. It is one that is bound to permeate the ponderings of those who have happened across my blog. “What music does he listen to?”
Ok, I might have gotten a little carried away there, but whether or not you have ever wondered what I listen to, I’m going to tell you. Introducing the first Monthly Awesome XK Music and Stuff (MAXKMaS).
First of all, as an intro, MAXKMaS is in no way guaranteed to be a professional nor even quality article. The opinions expressed herein are those of the author, and as such, reflect those of the same. Very few headphones were harmed in the making of this post.
05. Breath of Life (Florence + the Machine)
This song is from Snow White and the Huntsmen. The movie itself, minus Hemsworth and Theron, was a total flop. It had potential, and every second I expected it to get better, but it never did. I totally recommend watching the credits, though. They’re set to this song, and the CG is really cool.
04. Is This a Dry Season or Agnostisism (Sons)
This is a thought provoking song. Hover here for the lyrics.
03. Gravity (Lecrae)
A taste of rap for when my indie gives out.
02. Be Calm (Fun.)
I literally love this song. That is my review.
01. Selling the News (Switchfoot)
I’ll let this one sing its own tune.
And that wraps up this inaugural episode of MAXKMaS. Here’s a link to a Spotify playlist containing all of these songs. I’ll be putting up more posts like this as I continue because, you see, I really like music. These songs represent some of the stuff I’ve just recently gotten into. We’ll see what the future holds.
