Title: Wanderlust King
Notable: I think the term Gypsy Punk was invented to describe their music. I also find it impossible to be in a bad mood when I listen to this song. If you ever get a chance to see these guys live, I highly recommend it.
Quotable: "I traveled the world looking for understanding, of the times that we live in, hunting and gathering first hand information, challenging definitions of sin."
Artist: Of Monsters and Men
Title: Little Talks
Notable: Another great band out of Iceland. I really love their sound. Her voice is lovely and I find the tone of this song so uplifting.
Quotable: "Though the truth may vary this ship will carry our bodies safe to shore"
Artist: Bebel Gilberto
Title: Sem Contenção
Notable: I love love love this woman's voice and I love the spin she puts on her native Brazilian music. Sem Contenção translates to No Holding Back.
Quotable: "Sem contenção só na emoção prá ser feliz sem resistir de um puro não prá explicar essa tua intenção"
