On Repeat #1

Hello fellow Broke Girls!
     Every Friday, look out for our music edit: On Repeat. Each girl will be posting a song that we just can't get enough of this week, and trust me there will be something for everyone. Read on and find out what we've been loving recently, and check it out for yourself!

Fyah Fyah – Selah Sue
    This week I haven’t been able to get enough of Selah Sue, her kickass music, and crazy hair. At only 23, this Belgian lady has been at the music game for years already. Fyah Fyah, I think, is one of the coolest tracks on the album. The beginning is quite mellow and soulful, but then bursts into some insane reggae/rap runs. Her tone is incredibly unique, even live (fellow Broke Girl Tori and I saw her this past fall). It’s been several months and I still haven’t gotten over her, so check her out dudes!

Mama's Broken Heart - Miranda Lambert
     Lately my music mood has been as random as putting my phone on shuffle, but no matter what I find myself coming back to Miranda Lambert. I've had her on my Spotify, Pandora, and on repeat on my phone. There's just something about the warmer weather (that Kansas is currently lacking) that makes me want to put country songs on repeat (currently all of my Recently Added is exclusively country). Though I love the whole album, Mama's Broken Heart has definitely been a song that I've found myself searching for to press play repeatedly. 

Stoked and Broke - Fidlar
     Oh, Fidlar, singing the anthems of the underachiever like Cheap Beer and, this week's song, Stoked and Broke. They had my heart when I saw them live when they toured with another favorite band of mine, Jeff the Brotherhood. The first time I ever heard them was on that tour. I also had the chance to meet them which was amazing, even if it was only for introductions; however, that turns into a longer, more embarrassing story. All that asIiide, this week has definitely been a week where Fidlar, Jeff, and Foals have been on repeat. Check these foxes out, yo! 

Waste - Phish
      Unlike my fellow broke girls, my choice this week is a bit of a throwback. Billy Breathes by Phish came out in 1996 (ugh, I was so young!) but I just recently discovered them on 8tracks and have not been able to stop listening to that album. They're a very chill band with obvious influences from the 70s (especially Simon & Garfunkel) and a great background to have when studying. I highly recommend them if you're feeling mellow and enjoy great instrumentals. This song I chose in particular because all I've been wanting to do is stop studying for ONE FREAKING second and just read/watch TV/do whatever the hell I want and hang out with some specially chosen people. But alas, that will not happen for another month, so in the meantime I live through this song. 
I Am Not a Robot - Marina and the Diamonds
     So, if there's one song you should be utterly obsessed with, (or person even) Marina and the Diamonds's I Am Not a Robot has been stuck in my head for the past 7 months... yes, SEVEN months. I constantly find myself wanting to listen to Marina 24/7. Whether you're in a cocky bitch or a self-loathing little girl mood. She's the absolute perfect fit. (No but really I highly recommend I Am Not A Robot, it's amazing.)
