Guest Blogger: Luke Hunter. Title of Blog: This Lover Calms the Darkness

My name is Luke Hunter, I have a blog called Someone To Love More Than Music, and love me some Indie-Folk. Top 9: The Mountain Goats, Thao Nguyen, Joanna Newsom, Devendra Banhart, Langhorne Slim, Paleo, Anathallo, Pee-Pee, Porlolo. Paleo, however is climbing the charts of my heart-strings at an alarming rate.

Paleo is quite the amazing man, if ya didn't know. He's taken up quite the task too. Paleo, my friends, decided to write a song everyday for a year, from easter to tax day. Quite the journey.

Anyone can just write a song a day, but, in my opinion, it takes a real musician/artist to make something of any amount of worth. What I find even more fascinating is that he is doing it completely for himself, meaning that, at this point, he has no plans to make money off of these songs (other than performing them). What this ultimately means is that our man Paleo has hosted every song he has done so far free of charge, and "if there's no post on a particular day, [he's] probably just searching for a connection (just like everybody else). " (from Paleo's site)

Here is are a few that I really enjoy:
