Today’s Indie: Stubborn Love / The Lumineers (live on KEXP)

it’s better to feel pain than nothing at all / the opposite of love is indifference

Like any new favorite band, The Lumineers have settled into my bones and stirred all the pieces in me that needed stirring. I really love these guys. Stubborn Love is a close second to my favorite track, Ho Hey, on their debut album, and has an age old tale to tell: love is not all rainbows and butterflies… it can be stubborn as hell, but it is so much better to fight through it than forsake it.

I can’t get enough of the Colorado trio’s wholesome, earthy, heartwarming sound and simplicity:

When we were young, Oh Oh, we did enough
When it got cold, Ooh Ooh, we bundled up
I cant be told,  Ah Ah It cant be done

Here’s to embracing the storm, together.  #indie / tory
