Just two weeks ago, the TV interpertation of Jay Asher's book "Thirteen Reasons Why" was released on Netflix. I read the book a few years ago and waited patiently for it to be released as a film. Easy to say, Executive Producer, Selena Gomez, did a spectacular job bringing the story to the screen and keeping Asher's thoughts intact. My absolute favorite part of the show was obviously the music in each episode. For those of you who have just landed on Earth, the storyline is that Hannah Baker, sophmore in high school, kills herself and leaves behind cassette tapes explaining why she did it and the tapes are passed around through the list of people that caused her death. Clay, her socially awkward friend recieves the tapes and learns every single devastation that occured in her life. In the duration of the show, we learn that Clay was hopelessly in love with her and he can't help but wonder what he did to be on the tapes. During a beautiful flashback scene to their school dance, Hannah and Clay dance to "The Night We Met" by Lord Huron, which seemed like the perfect soundtrack to their romance. This song was beautiful, yet haunting, knowing what would eventually happen to Hannah and created a bittersweet feeling. I love the mix of sadness and delight I get from listening to this song, just like every other song Lord Huron has released. Their sound is so unique and flawless and it would be a perfect soundtrack to live life to. Check them out and if you haven't yet, watch "Thirteen Reasons Why."
New Artists coming at you all the time.
