(31) Days of Good//12.12.15

kanye-west-so-help-me-god

If I was a professional athlete this would be my hype music. The aggression of this song sounds like Yeezus meets grime…I’m very curious to see what SWISH will sound like.

I cannot get enough of this song…aside from Adele’s “Hello”, this has to be the most covered/talked about song of the year…this version is so good that I like it much better than the original.

It only makes sense that a smooth British band signed to Dr. Dre’s label would collaborate with some hip hop artists.

Freddie-Gibbs-Shadow-Of-A-Doubt-640x640

One of the only rappers today still doing 90s style gansta rap, and it doesn’t sound dated from Mr. Gibbs. This guy can rap, and he could have gone the major label route but chose to keep things small and do things his way…which I love

(31) Days of Good: 12.1.13

little_ones_dawn_sang_alongHailing from Los Angeles, The Little Ones produced some of the most enjoyable indie pop this year. The six piece really has a sound all their own, but you can compare it to the sounds of The Beach Boys, Tokyo Police Club, Tilly and the Wall, and The Elephant Six collective. “Argonauts” was actually the first track I added to this year’s 31 days playlist and I never got tired of listening to it. It really is indie pop at its best.

When news broke that San Francisco’s Girls were no more, the blogosphere was quite devistated, myself included. Here I am, still trying to come to terms with the loss of LCD Soundsystem, and now a band I feel like I just met are a thing of the past. Alas, Christopher Owens rose from the ashes with his solo debut Lysandre, packed to the brim with the indie pop goodness Girls fans will come to love.

If you wish The Beatles were still making music (who wouldn’t?!), look no further than Sir Paul McCartney’s lead single from his latest solo offering – New. The combination of McCartney’s incredible song writing skills and pop musicality and the production of Marc Ronsen makes this track so much fun. It’s already a favorite of my son and he’s not even a month old.

Outside Lands 2013

outsidelands2013

The Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival will once again take over San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park later this summer.  I highly recommend this festival.  It’s like Coachella, just not as hot or expensive.  Oh, and instead of being held in a miserable desert, it all goes down in one of the best cities in the world.

There are quite a few highlights from this year’s lineup, including The National, NIN, Paul McCartney, Phoenix, Yeasayer, and Willie Nelson.  With that said, i’m probably most excited about Grizzly Bear, Vampire Weekend, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Youth Lagoon, and Daryl Hall & John Oates!!!

It all goes down August 9-11, tickets and more festival info can be found here.
