I've recently finished up Year 2 of Welcome to Night Vale, which is one of my favorite podcasts to listen to.  I started in on it last year, so I'm a little late to the party, but I'm trying to catch up.  Anyway, this is the third and final part of my favorite segments from "The Weather" from Year 2.  Without further ado, here we go in episode order:

"Take Up Your Spade" by Sara Watkins from Episode 46, "Parade Day" - I can totally get behind this peaceful and thought provoking song.


"Stupid" by Brendan Maclean from Episode 47, "Company Picnic" - This has been the only song featured on The Weather that I've actually recognized - and I was so happy to hear it get featured!  I've always liked the lyrics (seem pretty healthy in comparison to other songs that ask the question "why aren't you with me"!)  Plus, I've got to say that this guy has moves!  If I was that girl in the background who loses it, I wouldn't be able to keep a straight face at all.  I would either laugh uncontrollably throughout, or join in the dance!


"High Tide Rising" by Fox from Episode 48, "Renovations" - I'd that the subject matter makes this is a pretty good choice for The Weather.  Plus, they just sound so cool, and who can resist such sweet yo-yo tricks.

  3. I love all three of these songs! I've never heard of any of them but I'm definitely going to have to look up more of the artists' work sometime. I just love your music taste, Lauren!
