I have referred to @AestheticsGirl (aka Charity) as my Musical Guru for several years. Thanks to her, I have managed to avoid a complete descent into old age by occasionally being up-to-date on new music.
Here is the first in a series of @AestheticsGirl guest posts that will touch upon music, books and other things that make life far more interesting.

The Lumineers have gotten a lot of play of their song “Hey Ho” off from their self-titled debut album because of the tie-in to Silver Linings Playbook.
The band put on a charming and enchanting performance of “Hey Ho” and “Stubborn Love” on Saturday Night Live—great to see a band that is about the music and not the theatrics get a chance to shine.
Here’s a live Lumineers performance from Summer 2012:
Recently they appeared on The Grammy’s as an intro act to Jack White, performing, of course, “Hey Ho.”
While “Hey Ho” is a great track, brings a smile to my face and a bounce to my step whenever I hear it, the band actually has better songs on their album.
Expand your listening of The Lumineers to include “Classy Girls” and “Slow It Down.”
Or better yet, listen to the entire album.
