Four Songs for You

Hannah Hart Beat

Hello. Hi. Hola. It’s me! I’m not gone forever, Hart Beat! It’s been a while since I’ve seen you here on this here ye old blog but now that the G.D. book is kind of out of my hands for a month I felt like I needed to give you all a little love, my o.g. readers.

So to catch up a little bit here are five songs that I’ve been listening to lately. Four good summer-is-almost-here-ra-ta-ta-ta songs at least in my world. They’ve all been added to the official Hart Beat playlist on Spotify so if you want them and the six-year backlog I’ve collected there click this here link. I think out of all of them the middle two are my faves. What about you, Hart Beat? Send me anything new you’re loving and we can get the great music exchange back up and running.

1. “Woo” by Beach House from their new album 7.

2. “Every Time I Hear That Song” by Brandi Carlile from her new album By The Way, I Forgive You. P.S. Shout out to Gail for sharing this on her Spotify friend activity—you always share the best music. <3

3. “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me” by Mel Carter

4. “Such A Simple Thing” by Ray LaMontagne. It’s his first new single since 2016, v. exciting day and he’s playing up here at Mass Moca this summer if you’re in the area, Hart Beat.

Take Me to Your River

Leon Bridges - Hannah Hart Beat

Afternoon, Hart Beat. How’s your Friday going? I’m home today resting and it’s been the nicest day to stay in Brooklyn. I’ve been catching up on a few things and thought I’d share a song with you that I’ve been listening to a lot this week.

I’ve posted about Leon Bridges here on Hart Beat before, but today I want to share a new (to me) song of his. The song is amazing but the video is something even more incredible.


The video, according to Bridge himself is intended to “incorporate the struggles of the black community within Baltimore with song about a hope that’s not if this world.” The short film was written and directed by Miles Jay. What do you think, Hart Beat? Do you love Leon Bridges as much as I do?

Brooklyn’s Aly Tadros

Hi Hart Beat. I am so happy to share this song with you tonight. This is one of my favorites lately, and the best part? Aly Tadros is a fellow Brooklyn resident! We actually met last spring in the my Brooklyn running group and ever since looking her music up after meeting, I can’t stop listening. Not only is Aly an amazing artist but also the nicest person ever. This year Aly and fellow musician Ben Balmer released the song “Whim” that they co-wrote together. I am floored Hart Beat, I love this song so much. Aly’s playing in Manhattan on Saturday night, who wants to come with?

Up all night to get lucky

Hola Hart Beat. One of my best friends and favorite bloggers Leah of Urban Anthropology posted this song as her weekly music pick early this November. I can’t stop listening to it and I had to share it with you. I’ve posted songs by Daughter before, I just love her voice so much. This song posted here combines my love for Daughter with my love of women artists covering rock and rap songs. I know you love that too Hart Beat and this one won’t disappoint, I promise.

“Get Lucky” cover by Daughter

Honey, it’s alright

Hi Hart Beat. I have a song for you to listen tonight. Do you know Gregory Alan Isakov? I think you might like him Hart Beat. His newest album, The Weatherman, was released this past July and it’s a good place to start with. This man’s voice woos me like no other. I could listen to this song all night long.

“Honey, It’s Alright” by Gregory Alan Isakov

Leaving You Behind

Hi Hart Beat. I wanted to share a new song with you really fast this Saturday night. If you’re on your way out too we can listen to it together. What do you think, Hart Beat? You in?

“I Should Live in Salt”
Think about something so much
You should know me better than that
Start to slide out of touch
You should know me better than that
Tell yourself it’s all you know
You should know me better than that
Learn to appreciate the void
You should know me better than that

I should live in salt for leaving you behind

Sweetheart I already miss you

Hi. How’s your Sunday night going, Hart Beat? I felt like a little romantic music tonight to offset the horrible Breaking Bad outbreak that is about to hit the internet. You with me? This is one of my favorite songs to play on the guitar and I finally found a decent youtube version of the song for you.

“I Already Miss You” by The Kooks
You know I hate talking on telephones
I’m so sorry it’s just my way
And now that I’m a little older
There’s so much to you I’d like to say

Babe I already miss you
Sweetheart I already miss you
Sweeteyes I already miss you
And you only just walked out the door

Ghosts that we knew

It’s been beautiful fall weather in Brooklyn lately so I’ve been taking some nice really long runs. It’s been nice to listen to entire albums all the way through on a run and besides my favorite classics like Tommy and Taylor I’ve been giving the second Mumford & Sons album a serious listen. My favorite song out of the album is this one posted bellow and I thought you might like to hear it, Hart Beat.

But hold me still, bury my heart on the coals
But hold me still, bury my heart next to yours
“Ghosts That We Knew” by Mumford & Sons
