Indie Alternative / Electronic Pop: Hey Now by London Grammar
Indie Rock: What You Know by Two Door Cinema Club
@AlyssaPandora, LOL , (not for you mohempstead) you are probably right! However, I will still give it an ear. You posted it, I will keep my word. Thanks for your choices of SOTD. Take care and stay safe.
P.S AlyssaPandora I really liked "River" by Leon Bridges, I added it to two of my playlist. Great song. I also liked "Hey Now" by London Grammar, I also added this song to my playlist. And "YES" you were absolutely right!! "Do Not Disturb" by Drake was not at all for me. I did give it a listen too, it was almost as painful to hear as it would be pulling a tooth without Novocain. I suffered through it because I am a quick healer. Just kidding... I have heard worse. You had some great choices. Thank you, take care and stay safe.
@mohempstead let me give this a try! 🎸🥁🎹
