If you grew up in the Missy Elliot era, you’re about to get down SO HARD to this.
And if I know two things (and only two things) about Kaytranada, it’s that he’s from Montreal and mixes beats into music like a kitchenaid. Flawless.
If you like that? Take a listen to Janet Jackson’s - IF, another Kaytranada remix that’s racking up quite the play counts and awkward stares from anyone next to me at a red light.
He’s from Oakland! High fives all around for more home grown talent and bay area bragging rights.
Tom Cascino, a.k.a. Broke For Free and the music maker of dreamy chillwave (whatever that means)… it sounds nice. It’s a rainy day or sunny day road trip essential.
I imagine he’s also serious about the being broke part, because he’s giving his music out for free on his bandcamp. Steal away.
The Gold Lining: another total dreamboat.
I’m always amazed when a band covers a fantastic song and makes it better than the original. Menahan Street Band took Go Outside by the Cults and turned it into solid gold for the holiday season. That xylophone!
The good news? Menahan Street Band just so happens to be playing with Charles Bradley this Friday night at the Great American. Despite this storm, looks like I might have to (horrible pun alert) go outside.
Hi blog! You still exist. Did you notice I’ve been gone for 3 weeks? No? I went to Israel. Doesn’t ring a bell? Perfect.
Pretty much the only good thing about coming back to reality after a three week trip is catching up on three weeks of new music in a short period of time. In two days I’ve discovered in the past 3 weeks a new xx album, two door cinema club, and cat power album has been leaked. Not to mention Ellie Goulding’s single from her upcoming album has been released and I feel like I’ve won the musical lottery.
She made this video curated from her fans instagrams, because she’s fan driven and lovely. And I’m going to stop typing now before my girl crush on her becomes internet creepy.
Happy to be home, San Francisco. Missed you much.
The question is "what aren't we going to do?"
