The Internet Kitchen: Cookin’ Music

by Nick

I pretty much always listen to music while I’m cooking. I actually have a hard time just cooking in silence.

There has been some really awesome albums that came out this year that I’ve been jamming to while in the kitchen so I thought I would share them.  Here are five albums that came out this year that I can’t stop listening to.

Alabama Shakes – Boys and Girls
(Sample Song: Hold On)

Edward Sharpe and Magnetic Zeros: Here 
(Sample Song: Man on Fire)

The Lumineers: The Lumineers
(Sample Song:  Flowers in Your Hair)

Mumford and Sons: Babel
(Sample Song:  I Will Wait)

Japandroids: Celebration Rock
(Sample Song: The House That Heaven Built)

If you have some great albums (new or old) that you love to listen to while you cook, leave a comment!

No poll this week because I’m traveling most of next week.

Best Food Articles of 2012 – A roundup of some of the better food writing that came out this year. I loved a lot of these articles and some were new to me. (@ Huff Post)

Pistachio Brittle – I’ve been obsessed with pistachios lately. I haven’t cooked anything with them because I tend to eat all of them before I can actually use them in a recipe. (@ Brown Eyed Baker)

Hot Chocolate on a Stick – I love looking at Heather’s desserts because they seem easy to make even if they look ridiculously good. Her book is also great. (@ Mod Cloth Blog)

Sweet Potato Skins – Who doesn’t love a good potato skin? I’ve never had the sweet potato version, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t also be delicious. (@ Sippity Sup)

  1. Since you like The Lumineers and Mumford and Sons, I would recommend you check out Milo Green. Their song 1957 is awesome, and so is the entire album.

  2. Pretty much anything by the Talking Heads is great to listen to while cooking (or cleaning the house) :)

  3. The Suburbs – Arcade Fire. It won a Grammy for a reason. Also, it makes me feel better about selling out on my old neighborhood for the much larger kitchen I now enjoy!

  4. Oh man, you just opened a can of worms. I am going to keep it to my 5 most-played-while-cooking this year, and just newer albums. They are honestly all so great, you simply must check them out. In no particular order:

    -A.C. Newman–Shut Down the Streets (2012)
    -Eleanor Friedberger–Last Summer (2011)
    – Tree Party — Tree Party (2011), great stuff from Minnesota
    -The Walkmen — Heaven (2012)
    -Communist Daughter– Lions and Lambs (2012), more great stuff from MInnesota

    Rock on.
