Ha ha. Artist name like a popular car. Makes sense…you’re in for a hellva ride. The new Buzzworthy-’Spotlightable’ Jetta made my ears take notice this morning. All I wanted to do was leave, so I could go home. Filled with romantic lyrics that visualize midnight memories. What I took from it was this…can’t wait to end this 13 day work streak in a few hours. Get back to my couch, sleep, wake up, and sleep again.I have much research & planning for SXSW that I’ll be making spreadsheets till the sunlight raises.
My phone is blowing up with multiple photos ready to showcased from last night’s 311 intimate show at the Roxy. My coworker Steven invited me last minute. Said yes, because I can never say no to an impromptu showcase. He absolutely loved it. Me, so-so. Have never been a huge fan of 311. Just glad I got to see more concert because of missing SXSW next week. Gonna compensate here in LA in response. So, yeah. Gotta be selective with last night’s shots. All iPhone shot. So, expect some gems.
With that…have an amazing weekend readers! Buckle up because your riding into it with Jetta & her buzzworthy cut — “Feels Like Coming Home”.
Last day for hipster Just. ”Shadow” by Wild Nothing is as hipster as you can imagine. Soft keys & strings, unmoving, never changing static melody, and sweet as honey dew. It isn’t spectacular in execution. Just okay. Made for ambient moments in a busy life. Like a shadow. You probably wouldn’t know it was there unless you cognitively pointed it out. So, yeah…it’s a catchy tune if you make a connection with it.
Trying to transition out of this mellow mood. Only being powered by sure will. Like remaining flumes in a gas tank…it can only get me so far. My ‘lent’ promise is to learn how to balance my current crazy life. Financing new ventures are always need more finance to get moving. Our SXSW coverage should be fun. New correspondent. New photographer. More musical memories for a classic music lover. Gonna build our game plan this weekend. So excited for Santos.
But first we gotta make it through the week. And a day without meat. (thanks lent). Watch Wild Nothing perform on KEXP to kick off your day.
Had to do my share of apologizing yesterday. Made a major boo boo because other people’s mistakes. Then they were praised for making the mistake go away. It’s not something that I will forget very soon. Ugh.
Anyway. We’re back. Bumping a classic Future Islands track as my computer fails to boot up. No luck this morning. An ongoing trend in my life. Not sure how long this will last. Hate feeling like this. But with over two years of amazing moments…had to hit rock bottom sooner than later.
Really wished ‘Last Train to Paris’ was better. It average. Still dig this track. No matter that is the second time it kicked off our 1st song blurbs. Hello. Good Morning. Will get me on that TIP, Rozay, Diddy vibe as I set up these pretapes. Oscar weekend ahead. Haven’t really assistant much in preps. Should be painless? I hate working award shows in the rain. Adds another layer of drama.
Nonetheless, have a great weekend!
Head for that open door. Tiesto remixed Youngblood Hawke’s popular 2013 single — ‘We Come Running’ — awhile ago. It has the signature smooth rise & fall we expect from Tiesto. The song itself grows on you, even more so on this remix. So, enjoy. I’m running behind because of traffic. Wish I had more to say.
Bad rabbit. Talking all sexy. Music to rebound to after a hangover. At least that’s the category I’m dropping it into. Pour up…drink…rebound..drink…sit down…drink…pass out…drink. This song continues the nice trend of danceable, in your skivvies, kind of tunes. Hey, it’s just you & the mirror after all. No shame.
Couldn’t sleep last night. So I wrote. A lot. It all drops later tonight. Here is a little something-something you might not of heard of.
Consider this to one of the best driving songs you could possibly have bumping out your speakers. Well, unless you count Vamp Weekend’s “A-Punk”. That succeeded this track, funny. You’d be correct to pinpoint the playlist in question was called “Summer Drive”. Those two were the shiny moments. Had a bunch of recent, generic Katy Perry tracks too. *shivers* So bad. If you’ve never heard of “Electric Feel”. The chorus is a play on words: “Electric Field” subbed in for “Electric Feel”.
Went to pick up my AA Credential after work. Which means the start to a very long weekend. Pray for me. Cause I’m still hustlin’. Got about halfway through our Allen Stone review. Struggling to find the right words.
Here is a blast from the past. MGMT power up that ‘feel’.
The Sweds finished second in the Olympics Men’s Hockey Finals this weekend. This morning, however, they place first in our songs hearts with a track from The Royal Concept. ”D-D-Dance” will make you dance like a hipster. Magically HRGs will appear on your face & flannel on your skin. Enough to make you lose yourself.
Weekend was sociable to say the least. Rolled with my various teams. Listened to their dramas. Drank till we were satisfied. Gonna do catch up & write a little something tonight. For I’m back on a 13 day straight work schedule. Here we go, for the final time.
This is a band you’ll be hearing from quite soon. If you haven’t already. The Bad Suns’ have the perfect indie rock tonality to click in your eardrums. That usually leads to unbridaled obsession. ”Cardiac Arrest” is their buzzworthy single of the moment. They are playing SXSW in a few weeks. After which, Vh1 will probably make them one of their arrests. Truly recommend this morning’s song. I’m gonna check out their new EP after I get done writing.
I’m a bit tired from Game Night. It was fun! Tonight’s even funnier as we have a Showcase with a side of wings. This will be the 6th (!!!) time I drop in on Allen Stone. At the venue where I first fell for his music: The Echo. There are so many things I have already said and not said about an Allen Stone show. Will it liven up the showcase review? The pictures will probably suck. But we’ll see. Depends on my position. More stories to come.
Here’s buzzworthy band, Bad Suns, and their soon be smash hit — “Cardiac Arrest”.
