It’s time for another musical interlude here on More Than Meh. It’s been far too long since I’ve written anything about music here. I previously wrote about Ho Hey, The Lumineers’ first single off their self-titled album. I still count that as my favorite song of 2012 so far, but their new single Stubbon Love is not far behind. It was featured over the closing scene on Covert Affairs the other night. My husband and I happened to be watching in different rooms, but when it was over he came upstairs and said you like that band don’t you. He was not wrong. He of course had no idea who it was and had never knowingly heard the song before, but he knows the kind of music I like. It amused me.
I would love to see them in concert, but that does not appear to be in the cards any time soon. It’s not because they aren’t playing near me because they are, it just never seems to align with my schedule. They played at a club in Baltimore the day before I returned from my trip to Arizona. They’re playing the XPNontial Music Festival in Philly this weekend, which I totally would have gone up for given that as a member I can get super cheap tickets, but their set is tomorrow night at 6, and there’s no way I can make it up there in time after work. They also opened for Brandi Carlisle at Wolf Trap while I was in Arizona. Missing that show is the most disappointing because I love Brandi Carlisle as well as The Lumineers and Wolf Trap is my favorite concert venue ever. I guess we are not destined to share the same space in person any time soon, but I’ll enjoy their music over my personal speakers in the mean time.
