Music Monday: Arctic Monkeys

As all my friends know, I’m extremely picky over my music choices. I even only have 5 artists on my iPod! One of them being the Arctic Monkeys. I only discovered them last year despite them being formed in 2002. Needless to say, as soon as I heard them, I loved it!

Their latest album, called AM, is my favorite of their albums. It’s very hip hop influenced, which I like, and is also really dark, which I also enjoy since it makes me feel edgy. Yes, I’m easily influenced into liking things if they make me feel edgy…. Don’t judge me!

They recently covered “Hold On, We’re Going Home” by Drake and I really enjoyed it. I thought they pulled it off well considering the song is a different genre but also put their own spin on it.

Alternative Music Monday

So I’ve been getting really into alternative music lately, probably because of my new hipster lifestyle, and I’ve been discovering all of these new bands and artists because of it. Pandora Radio has also helped with this respect too. Slowly but surely my alternative music selection has been growing in my iTunes library.

One of the bands I’ve discovered are the Arctic Monkeys. They’re a group from the UK but have a lot of American influenced music styles. Their latest album is hip-hop inspired, which I love, and their music makes me twerk. So it’s basically all I’ve ever wanted in a music group.
