I couldn’t be happier to have discovered The Cinema… especially with the summer quickly approaching!!
The song that’s been making me toss my hair around a whole lot… normally in the privacy of my apartment, iiis…
(Okay, that’s not really true. It has also been in public. Just enjoying myself, ya know??)
Check it out, The Cinema – The Wolf.
Is anyone else impatiently counting down the days until the new film adaptation of The Great Gatsby comes out?!
As the soundtrack for the film, (produced by Jay Z) continues to slowly be released, I can hardly contain myself.
The track I’m sharing today:
Filter: Happy Together
You can expect many posts relating to the film in the coming weeks!
Jazz music warms my soul.
There is simply no other genre of music that gives me the joy and comfort that jazz does.
Here is a little musical treat from a couple of my favorites, Ella and Louis.
So, I came across this song the other day… and it is just beautiful!
Jessie Ware – If You’re Never Gonna Move (Two Inch Punch Remix)
This week I’d like to share a great cover Of Monsters and Men did of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ song, Skeletons.
It is mellow and relaxing to listen to.
Lissie is traditionally a folk artist, whom has made a few killer covers.
I have to thank my good friend Eric for showing this song to me, my brother, and our friends.
We had the time of our lives jamming out to this song last summer at the beach.
Lissie has also been featured in some great new house mixes, and some of her verses from this cover were recently featured in a rap song (hands on the wheeeeeel — couldn’t tell you the name of the song/artist).
This week, I’m excited to share the music of Charly Bliss, an incredibly talented indie-esque band, led by Eva Hendricks.
Eva had come out with an album last year, which I listened to every day on my commute to/from work. She is just so, so talented and has a unique flair to her singing that I love.
Check out these awesome covers, and catch them live in the city!
Sidenote: So, I grew up on a magical street, with two other families. A gaggle of kids always playing, and becoming close friends — so close in fact, that we have become one big family. One of my “neighbor/sister”s is Madeline. Her entire family is incredibly driven and creative… Madeline being an amazing singer and actress; Jessica having founded The Brave Collection (check it out, its a truly inspiring project/collection); their dad, Chuck, being the adventurous chef; and their mom, Dawn, having opened a jewelry store (make that two), Peridot. Peridot has actually been a huge part of my life — learning to appreciate quality jewelry and designers, but also meeting some great people. Eva is Madeline’s cousin, which is how I have come to know Eva! Eva’s mom, MaryEllen happens to be an incredible photographer, and has truly beautiful pieces (one lives in our home!) There will certainly be more mention of the good ol days growing up… including Mary, Tony, Kathleen, Anna and Meg. —
Oh, and the drummer is Eva’s brother, Sam! Is this the coolest family, or what???
Also, fun-fact, that is Madeline in the album art above. How adorable?!
YesYou has quickly become one of my favorite new musical delights. (Yep, I just used the phrase “musical delights”. Whatssaaaap.)
Their music is sort of like Passion Pit met Foster the People back in their high school days… and, over the years, their love lingered on… and after an appropriate amount of time, they birthed a child. That child being named YesYou. (I’m in a weird mood)
Really though, their music is sick, aaand I love it. It also doesn’t hurt that Jono (half of YesYou) is a total babe.
… and Gav (other half), too!
YesYou – Amsterdam
Check em out, buy their album… just do it.
Local Natives are “locals” on my playlists these days.
& GUESS WHAT?! You can stream their album for free on iTunes today. Pretty rad.
Their new album, Hummingbird is magical.
Check out this track from the album: Breakers
