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.
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.
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.
Yesterday felt like Monday. Today feels like Thursday. Except it’s Wednesday. Hump day. Featuring new comic books. Don’t have much to pick up today. Might grab two comics that I’ve been putting off. Who knows? I’ll deal with that after the work day wraps. Seeing how thinking further ahead doesn’t do me justice. Minute by minute. Day by Day. I caught up on handful of titles before bed. Batman 52. Saga. Both were good in their own right. Just got to wait till they come back from their mini-breaks.
This is the first time that I’m showing Matt & Kim love in our morning musical warm up. Love this song. Reminds me when I saw them live at the Bowl many moons ago. They rocked. That they did. An incredible live experience that you should all go hunt down. The two bring so much energy, along with their juvenile punk rock sense of humor. Maybe their jokes got a bit mature since then? Not sure. Haven’t been following. ”Daylight” should really be on any travel playlist. Enough rock to not make a car ride boring. Plus, intriguing lasting lyrics that define life’s moments. Bump. it. loud.
This is Kim + Matt’s “Daylight”.
This song / music video came out almost 7 years ago! Ah. That’s crazy. Still holds up especially in our crazy Valentine’s day week playlist. For, I love Regina’s songbook. Came into rather late. Seems fitting. Her unique voice still gives me chills. Oooh Oooh.
Already decided what song will kick off tomorrow’s festivities. Think you’ll like it.
I’m feeling better. Laughing till you cry with amazing guys usually brightens my spirits. More of the same tonight. It’s wing night Thursday after all. My fuel to a very exciting weekend. I’ll be spending Valentine’s Day alone. Might go see a movie. Wine & dine myself a bit. For, I exactly what I like. Either way…music shall be played. Here is the loving “Samson” by Ms. Regina Spektor.
