(mostly about music)

<3 !!!  … The first song still kills me. There has always been something about his lyrics that resonate with me. 

Artist: Jack White

Songs: ”The Same Boy You’ve Always Known” and “Entitlement”


"Satan’s in the cornfields startin’ fires"  

Artist: KIng Dude

Song: Jesus In The Courtyard

It was only a week ago that Gardens & Villa were playing the same student model Wurlitzer in the load in area at Sister and we already miss them! Killer band … the more I listen to them the more I like them.

Artist: Gardens & Villa

Song: Orange Blossom  

Love it or hate it, you can’t deny this guy is talented. Give him a listen and you might find him in your playlist more often than not. 

… I pretty much like all of his material given the right mood. 

Artist: Blood Orange (aka Lightspeed Champion aka Dev Hynes)

Song: Forget it


Because its been too long


Childish at his best… this video is almost as good as the song. Seemingly a single shot with some Gambino clone treatment in post-production. (possibly inspired by True Detective??) His word play on this track is impressive to say the least. 

“don’t be mad cause I’m doing me better than you’re doing you,”

Artist: Childish Gambino

Song: Sweatpants 


Who right now is more prolific than Ty Segall?! Ty has released 42 records (LP’s, EP’s, Singles etc.) in the last 8 years. I know this album came out last summer but I am just now getting around to listening to it and it’s really good. J Mascis did something similar with his band “Witch” back in 2005 and Fuzz pulls this off with similar success. So for everyone looking for something new to listen to this is highly recommended.

Artist: Fuzz

Song: Fuzz’s Fourth Dream 


Sure this guy is very young and pretty hip with the get up but I am really feeling this. “Words” are powerful and every now and then we need to be reminded of that.  Perhaps the youth is more in touch with intuition…

"We are indigos living lives we chose, show you’re brave, those with faith. On a mission led by intuition. "

Artist: Raury

Song: God’s Whisper


A Shlohmo song remixed by Jaar… what else could you ask for?! 

Artist: Shlohmo

Song: Rained The Whole Time (Nicolas Jaar remix) 

Rap album of the year?! I know we are just getting into 2014 but it will be a contender.  All of the singles off of his upcoming album, “Oxymoron” are solid as fuuuccck.

Artist: School Boy Q

Song: Man Of The Year

Album: Oxymoron (releases Feb. 25th)
