The first one is Childish Gambino, who is actually Donald Glover (Troy from Community). I remember the day after we had Kaitlyn, Nov. 15th, 2011, and I was laying in the hospital holding her and we were watching Conan and Donald Glover came out and started rapping and singing to this really fun, electronic-type music. I loved it! Then, we came home and I forgot about it . . . until this week when I heard another song by him. I went online and looked him up and listened to other songs. A lot of his lyrics are really clever . . . and some are really vulgar, but I love his sound!
The second band I want to blog about is an Icelandic Folk Indie band called Of Monsters and Men. I love their accents and their cool musical sound. I discovered them through a friend and loved them the minute I heard them. They have a really great sound and incorporate instruments that aren't really used in America anymore--accordion and trumpet are used in nearly every song along with guitars and drums. It makes for a really cool sound!!
Here are some songs by these two. Enjoy!
