What We’re Listening To: Leon Bridges

2015 was the year of extraordinary music and full albums that I’ve just fallen in love with. Don’t worry, we’ll be sure to write a more comprehensive post about the artists and songs we got after as we get closer to the new year. I’ve been listening to songs from Leon Bridges here and there for awhile, but had become so distracted that I never actually got the whole album and added it to my Spotify. I’m a little embarassed to say this, but it was that performance of “Kevin” that he did with Macklemore last week at the American Music Awards that woke me up. After that, I spent the whole rest of the evening listening to “Coming Home.” With every song, I started wondering about how much better it would sound if I could just play it on my record player and not from my speakers. I absolutely adore Leon. It’s the kind of music that takes you back years and years beyond Mayer Hawthorne, beyond Raphael Saadique, and is so timeless. Leon is just 26 years old – a year older than me – and he sounds like he’s been doing this forever. The soul soundtrack is sometimes all I need/want to listen to right before I go to bed. And it’s the soundtrack I can imagine myself dancing along to with my s/o in the kitchen after a long night. So charming. Okay, we’re smitten – I guess you could say that we’re more than just a little excited about Leon.

Here are our favorites:

  • Coming Home
  • Better Man
  • Brown Skin Girl
  • Smooth Sailin’
  • Shine
  • Lisa Sawyer
  • Flowers
  • Pull Away
  • River
  • (basically the whole album)
