“One of my favorite things about music is that it’s unifying. We wrote these songs to reflect joy in a time where people have needed it more than ever and we thought it was a good time to share them with you” said Mark foster, frontman for the band Foster The People. I couldn’t agree more Mark! Yesterday the band shared not one but THREE new songs called “Doing It For The Money”, “S.H.C.”, and “Pay The Man” from their anticipated third record due out this summer. This album is following 2014’s Supermodel, which was incredible. Also on the books is a North American Tour which begins May 26th in San Diego. Click here to see a complete list of their tour dates. Listen to the new songs below and try to catch them on tour! Happy listening music fam! ✌🏻💜🎵

It’s here everyone, the 2014 Lollapalooza official lineup has been announced.

Stay tuned tomorrow morning for the HUGE line up announcement and single day passes will go on sale tomorrow also! I will be sure to post the lineup here in case you miss it.
On another not…check out the AMAZING official Lollapalooza poster? I had to order it immediately. Let me know if you’ll be going to the festival, I’d love to meet some of you! =D
Yay yay yay yay YAY! Wow sorry guys, I had to get that out of my system. If you’ve followed this blog for a bit you might have noticed I have a little thing for Lollapalooza (music festival)…and by little thing I really mean large scale obsession.
On to more exciting news, one of my favorite music sites Sound of Consequence reported today that there has been major talk surrounding the line-up for Lolla which is still pretty far off from being officially announced. The Chicago Tribune said that (not to be named) “industry sources” confirmed that Continue reading →
You guys! It’s almost 2014! I really feel 2013 was a great year for indie music. A lot of great bands put out new music (Phoenix!, Lorde,Pacific Air). I grew into liking some bands that I didn’t necessarily like before this year (The National, Cults, Young The Giant, Arcade Fire..still no hope for Mumford & Sons YUCK!). There was also a lot of really amazing bands/artists that made it to the spotlight (Lorde, Haim, Chvrches, The Royal Concepts, New Politics). Of course I made a playlist for my 2013 favorites (what kind of music blogger would I be if I didn’t?!). A handful of the tracks on the playlist really stuck out for me this, basically meaning that I may or may night have been so excited at first listen that I teared up and put the song on repeat for that entire week. I also had a bunch of favorites as in favorite song I heard on TV, favorite live show I saw, favorite album, etc. so here those are:
Hey guys! I wanted to tell you about a band I’ve been listening to a lot lately. They’re called Pacific Air. I am pretty sure I came across their song “float” in one of my many favorite mixes on 8tracks.com and loved the song so much I decided to check out their other songs. This also happened to be a month before Lollapalooza where the band would be playing! Pacific Air is made up of two brothers from California Ryan and Taylor Lawhon. The crazy thing is these guys are AMAZING and they’ve only been an active band less than a year! What’s really impressive is in that almost year they’ve already opened for Passion Pit, Walk the Moon, Two Door Cinema Club, Atlas Genius, Youngblood Hawke, and Ra Ra Riot AND been invited to Lollapalooza, The Governors Ball Music Festival, and SXSW!
I was lucky enough to see Pacific Air last month at Lollapalooza. I decided I wanted to see them just based off of the one song of theirs I had heard and I was completely blown away by how great of a show they put on! (pictures below)
Unfortunately They only have two more shows this year on the books and neither one of them is anywhere near FL *tear*. I am hoping that they will schedule some last minute shows later on in the year *fingers crossed*. Seriously though people, check out this band, I promise it’ll be worth your while. Listen to their album “Stop Talking” below. My favorite tracks (in case you wanted to know) are “Float” “Move” and “Duet in B Minor”.
Hey guess what?! 100 day countdown to Lollapalooza (my absolute favorite place on Earth) starts NOW! If you were lucky enough to get your hands on a ticket, which by the way sold out faster than ever, congrats to you! Do you know what this means?!
100 day until: exploring the GREAT city of Chicago, discovering new bands you’ve never heard before, dance parties, meeting new people, and creating the best music loving memories ever!!
