Tune in Tuesday (3): Givers and Ludo


Tune in Tuesday is hosted by Ginger at GReads! I share Ginger's fanatical love for music. Seriously, we text about songs all the time in the form of "OMG YOU HAVE TO LISTEN TO THIS IT'S LIKE HARMONIC NOOKIE FOR YOUR EARS." It's one of my favorite things about her, so I don't know why I don't participate in this feature more often.

Upon listening to completely random music on Spotify lately, I've discovered this gem of a band called Givers. Best word I can use? INFECTIOUS. How has this not been in my life before? I can totally imagine myself screaming this down the highway and beating the unrhythmic piss out of my steering wheel (I could never play the drums, ever.) But that won't stop me from enjoying every single moment of listening to Givers. Male and female singers. Mumford and Sons-esque instrumentation mixed with synth and FUN? Check out Saw You First.

Next up: LUDO. I've known about this band for a couple years now, but with the release of their new album Prepare the Preparations last year, I've taken it upon myself to renew and spread the Ludo Love. These guys, to put it plainly, are quirky as fffuuuuu. Go ahead and listen to the song that hooked me first, Love Me Dead. And yes, they're brushing their teeth and singing. That's AWESOME. And slightly revolting.

    1. They're so fun and quirky and happy. Quite a nice transition from all my sappy emo crap, yes? ;)

  2. I FREAKING LOVE LUDO. But I was hooked with Whipped Cream. ;) I'm a weirdo maybe.

    1. I love their ballads. Overdone is amazing. Which isn't really a ballad. But whatever. Also try "Mutiny Below." His voice is seriously incredible <3 MUSIC TWINS!

  5. Oh, I really like Saw You First!

    I'm sorry but I couldn't watch the Ludo video. I am really repulsed by people brushing their teeth. It's kind of an embarrassing quirk of mine. Every now and then, Kyle forgets and tries to talk to me with a toothbrush in his mouth, resulting in me screaming and shutting the door in his face. Best wife ever.

    1. HAHAHAHAH. Don't be sorry. The song is super good though, so you should look it up without the borderline gross video ;) Very quirky and the guy's voice is weird....yet kind of delish.

  6. I used to have an obsession with Ludo. One of my friends was a huge fan and got me hooked. It's been awhile since I've listened to their music though. I'm getting the urge to now though. "Love Me Dead" is a great song. And have you heard the Broken Bride sequence? So good!
