The May playlist is here! Ft. new tunes from Hot Chip, Beck, Anderson .Paak, The Black Keys and more. 🎶Have a listen below.
Here's the highlights:
Beck is back with another collab song ft. Pharrell titled “Saw Lightning”.
Hot Chip released a new single and announced an upcoming album. If you know me, you know that Hot Chip is one of my favorite bands and I’m so excited! (I’m actually seeing them tonight! Ahh!) The music video for Hungry Child is a wild ride and I suggest you give it a watch here. “A Bathfull of Ecstasy” is out June 21st.
The Raconteurs also announced a new album! It’s also out June 21st and is titled, “Help Us Stranger”.
It's my birthday month! I'm currently headed to Hicksville in Idyllwild to stay in a Twin Peaks, "Great Northern" themed motel room. More on that later. For now, some tunes!
Here's some highlights from the September playlist:
- LCD Soundsystem's new album is out TODAY! I'm seeing them at The Palladium in November!
- There's a collab in the works with Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile. Their album is set to release this fall.
- I went to my first show at the Masonic Lodge at Hollywood Forever Cemetery last week with El Ten Eleven ft. Emile Mosseri, with Korey Dane. I’ve been wanting to see a concert in the cemetery for a while and this line-up just really clicked. Mellow tunes and instrumentals in a beautiful, intimate space. El Ten Eleven is typically an instrumental band, but have collaborated with Emile Mosseri on their new EP, "Unusable Love". They pair so well together. At one point during the show someone in the crowd yelled, "Make more music together!", and the band smiled. Korey Dane, is kind of an up and comer with his folksy, indie rock. I discovered his music after I heard a few of his songs on KCRW lately, and by chance he opened the show. Solid set done by all.
- The first time I listened to Cupid by The Big Moon, I mistook the singer for Alex Turner of The Arctic Monkeys. Listening further I realized it was a female's voice, who just really sounds like him, and I'm super into it.
