Gotta love pretapes! Been through my share. Now as I await my release with two more feeds to take in, I figured I’d set up some summer tunes for your weekend pleasure as I do my own thing. Can only imagine the stories about to be had…by all of us.
Surprisingly, I still don’t own this record. Joshua Radin’s music has been a major part of my adult life that almost every single record finds it’s way into my world. Will always remember singing along in a sold out Hollywood Palladium as he performed some of my favorite anthems to a lukewarm crowd back in 2011.
His new independent release — ‘Wax Wings‘ (Out now!) — is much more uplifting than his last. Still haunting. Always beautiful. Joshua’s acoustic romantic folk rock was made for sunny holiday weekends like this. Songs for sunlight poking through living room blinds. Wind breezy. Empty blue sky, riding with the top down. ’Wax Wings’ will keep these stories as lasting memories tucked away in your head.
Lose yourself in the moments. For this is Joshua Radin at his best.
If you don’t own ‘R.A.M.’ (out now), you are seriously missing out on some really amazing music. It won’t be our ‘Album of The Week’ because I don’t feature albums that have had a post in the past month. However, I’m not sold on that law yet. Daft Punk’s RAM is really incredible. But us U.S. listeners won’t get this Japanese bonus track entitled ‘Horizon’. Like an ocean breeze, it is calming and sweet in perfectly acoustic sort of way.
Leaves me saying one thing…
Love the track, the video is bit strange for my taste. The ladies will love seeing Adam touching himself in paint. That line alone probably has the fan girls loving it more than ‘Playing for Change’. So, enjoy the fan service… All the Adam Levine a Maroon 5 fan can wish for. Bleh. This is “Love Somebody”.

Sara Bareilles uses the ‘Harlem Shake’ YouTube craze to highlight other brave people to get out & dance in public in her new video for ‘Brave’. Haven’t been feeling the single, poppy & a bit chessy, but the video is 4 minutes of fun. =)’s are the point after all.

Not ‘Hey Ya’. ’Ya Hey’. The new single from ‘Modern Vampires’ by those nocturnal weekend warriors. This is a celebratory lyric video with moments of uncertainty. Shower yourself in some bubbly. The track is actually kind of hot. Ride to it over the weekend as it was meant to be!
Their much anticipated record drops on 05/14.
A little paint on paint fan service for you music lovers. As fast as it came into my life, made an impression, then fell to the wayside — Gotye & Kimbra’s Iconic Somebody That I Used to Know is just one of those records that I keep on no matter how sick I am of it. It’s a quick 3 minutes. Pleasurable. Plus, really dig that xylophone. *Dink*
Fitting too seeing how I’ve come in contact with two of my past coworkers in the past few days. Yesterday’s wing night was a trip!
I survived The Killers. Made it in without any complicated camera issues. They let me right in. Got a decent spot & shots including some gems that took my breath away. The guy in front of me…as high as I imagined he was…kept pumping his fist up & down during every standout track. Got annoying. Then, I used it to my advantage. Absolutely love shadowy framed shots. Non-complicated concert photos are great and all, but the more artistic quality makes me smile more. The collections features a bit of both.
Memorial Sports Arena in hardcore, ghetto, Los Angeles was a venue I frequented countless times in my basketball youth. Saw the old crappy pre-blake era clippers battle hardwood legends like Michael Jordan. Stood on the same floor. Walked the cold dark halls where I’m sure legendary ghosts still resides. Geeked out a bit.
The only goal is to survive the morning. If I can make it to 10am…then I’m home free. The soda by my side will assure that. Got big plans tomorrow & Sunday. But on the fifth day, Justin rested. Should be fun. Killers pictures will be up tonight with the megapost & write-ups dropping soon after. Have an amazing weekend y’all.

Wednesday’s are the busiest days in my shoes. Due to the fact we put out full two shows in the span of 5 hours. Luckily, I stayed late yesterday evening to add some place holders in case of trouble. I’ve learned that I get in trouble if I don’t stay ahead of the crashing wave. Not my problem really. Technically, I could’ve left at 3pm and left it for the morning because everyone else did. Our AD just called me warning me about the first show and eased her nerves by telling her my masterwork.
Someone used our site to answer someone’s yahoo answer question. Got mad hits! Love moments like that.
Like this song. Something cheesy from the library. My second BsB post ever. Might as well sway. Have a great day y’all.
Work Hard. Play Hard. In fact, just let go. This is Guetta, Akon, & Ne-Yo zany music video for ‘Play Hard’. ’Nothing But The Beat 2.0‘ still in stores.
