Fabulous Fridays: The Lumineers
Today is the first day back in the office for me in over a week. John Hughes (Platypus Person) and I have been doing a lot of driving back and forth to the Southern Christmas Show where we’ve been doing a good business and getting to hang out with hundreds of our customers which is always fun. We’re really energized about Platypus after getting so much great feedback! Anyway, I’ve spent a good 15 hours on the road recently. Anyone that knows me knows that I love to listen to loud music while driving. Even my two year old boy, Rob, asks for loud music when we go anywhere. He’s a little me.
I’ve been relentlessly listening to The Lumineers across hundreds of miles of interstate. I wish I could get into a huge playlist here but I can’t. They only have one album, but it’s really doing it for me right now. It’s perfect autumn music. I’ve been blasting their rustic, heart-0n-a-sleeve album while threading down the still red, orange, and yellow tree-lined North Carolina highways. That’s me with a fast grin. In fact, I got a speeding ticket yesterday. Disclaimer: the officer wasn’t as impressed with the Lumineers as I was.
Give this self-titled album a listen on Spotify. I was excited about the first Counting Crows album (August and Everything After) and also the first Mumford & Sons (Sigh No More) in a similar way as this. Hopefully, they’ll keep producing great music for years to come.
