Listen Up: Cleopatra

It's been a while since I've made a music recommendation, but it's also been a while since The Lumineers released an album ;) Since hearing Ophelia and seeing the accompanying video, I've been beyond excited for the rest of the album. Now that it's been out for a few weeks (and I've been listening to it literally non-stop), I have to say I'm impressed. While their first album will always have a special place in my heart, their second, Cleopatra, was worth the wait.
Listen Up: Cleopatra

My favorite song is Angela and I absolutely can't wait to see it live! I'm going in August, at The Stone Pony no less, and am pretty much besides myself (when I tweeted about how excited I was, The Lumineers retweeted me, adding to my undying love for them!!!). Anyway, here's Angela


And here's the awesome video for Ophelia. Now, apparently this song is about fame and how she can be a temperamental mistress, but my best friend Ally and I prefer to think of it as a true love song haha


And here's a throwback to one of my favorite songs from their first album.


Are you seeing any summer concerts (I'm checking "go to a folk concert" off of my list of dreams!)? What are your thoughts on The Lumineers' new album?
