Good morning fellow music lovers! Do you know that feeling when you experience something SO mind-blowing/magical and when it ends you are left in a state of shock followed by the extreme fear of not being able to explain said magic to others?! Yeah..it took me a while but I think I’m ready. Back in August I got back from my favorite city in the world, Chicago or Chi-Town as I like to call it. For the past four years, every August I travel to Chicago for Lollapalooza. This year was no different although I did decide to tack on 4 extra days before Lolla to frolic in the city. Here are some highlights from my trip!
I hope you have all been able to get the new Grizzly Bear album “Shields”! My vinyl and CD copies showed up on my doorstep last night and OH EM GEE (please excuse the girly-ness) this album is AMAZING! I could say I’m surprised but I’m really not. Grizzly Bear never ceases to please my ears. Please check out this album, I promise it’ll be worth your while!
I have three favorite songs from this album and here is one of them (the others are “Yet Again” and Sleeping Ute”)
This is one of my favorite “sad” songs by one of my favorite bands! If you have seen Blue Valentine ending then you have heard this song and if you’re human, it has made you sad too! Check out this fan-made video..I love love LOVE it!
