Mixtape: Coachella 2015

coachella_playlist_headerThe time has come—we can almost feel the dust in our lungs, see the dirt in our fingernails and smell the fresh cut floral crowns. Music festival season is on its way, and we’ve got our high-waisted cut-offs freshly frayed!

With music festival line-ups, it’s easy to feel like you’re at the optometrist when reading the performances poster. The headliners stand out, bold and extra large, but what about the bottom-line acts? You know, the ones you need a prescription to see? They’re people too, and they’ve been invited to play for a reason! We’ve whipped out my magnifying glass for this year’s Coachella lineup and compiled 12 of the best of the bottom lines.

MIXTAPE: Kings of Chill

Because anything Washed Out is pretty much made for easy listening from a pink floaty in the deep end, we suggest you grab your best loungin’ suit and head for da pool. Atmospheric. Balearic. Nu (Chill) wavve. It’s a mellow beats summer and the Kings of Chill are here to lull you into a blissful summer daze. Jamiie xx keeps it UK while Ezra Koenig is all new dorp, New York. When it’s all said and done top it off with a (two scoops) cone and a side of synthpop. Sunsets go best with Chazwick Bundick. read more…

MIXTAPE: Girl Guide

Consider the pink skateboard: It’s the perfect emblem of bada$$ boldness and that girly somethin somethin. A pink skateboard says, “yeah I skate. And paint. Maybe even at the same time.” It’s a talent in itself to have so many talents don’t ya know, but somehow we found a whole army of coolgirls who can skate, paint, write, blog, sing, cook, and direct with the best of the best, all whilst managing a multitude of other roles. Though our thirty days of lady crushes has come to an end (insert sad face emoji) the ~ go-getter vibes~ live on with our mixtape of confidence-revving anthems as curated by the Girl Guides themselves.

For the past month we’ve been asking our lady friends who they’d drafted into their coolgirl army. Based on the last thirty days there’s no question who we’d want in our: five writers, four photographers, three DJs and a self-proclaimed cat lady to name a few. Maybe we’d even roll up on pink skateboards. Look out world – we’re taking over~ read more…

MIXTAPE: Courtney + Kurt 4ever

It might sound like the stuff of urban legends, but Lorde, singer of teen angst and supporter of broody lip stains, once wore a head-to-toe pink suit. Of course, only an occasion so monumental in size and setlist could evoke such fabled sites as the teen dream zombie queen in shades of kobi, all whilst Annie Clark played front woman to Dave Grohl on the drums. The event in question, Nirvana’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, brought about said dreamy scenes along with appearances by ladyrockers Joan Jett and Kim Gordon.

Though the band only received their musical honor this past April, Kurt + Courtney have long since pledge allegiance to our fave couples of yesteryear club (Johnny + Kate also hold honorary membership). As Lady Love turns a young 5-0 today, we’re celebrating with an ode to the duo that was. In hardships, in loveship, in matching blond bobs, here’s to a pair that made history both together and apart. We’ve got covers, original tracks, and even songs that name drop the big K.

I mean, what better way to celebrate turning half a century young than with a reggae cover of “Come As You Are” – amiright? read more…

MIXTAPE: Songs On Film

Best in show, these songs on film are the real stars of Hollywoodland: and, from the sounds of it, Spike Jonze, Baz Luhrmann and Quentin Tarantino agree. With the Academy Awards only days away, there’s no better soundtrack to get you in the spirit than our playlist of tunes written specifically for the silver screen.
The feature length film score is an audiophile’s haven. Home of many an unlikely cover, collaboration, and remix, soundtracks are the icing on top of the cake. (Note: this cake is probably a prop – DO NOT EAT!) And when the credits roll and you think it’s all over, there’s always exit music (for a film) to keep you wanting more. If you’re lucky enough, it’s by Radiohead. read more…
