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: No Vwls

A VWL IS LETTER THAT CAN’T GET NO LOVE FROM ME.

A, E, I, O, U, the English language can be pretty crUel…if you don’t get your letters in the right order and use the right punctuations. Some of the best gifts the Interwebz has given us include misspelt tattoos and young kids misspelling words to create something not quite G-rated. Why do so many words sound the same???

BUT, let’s celebrate the musicians (and two songs bc for some reason nobody is de-voweling song titles) who are like NAH, and have taken upon themselves to have names made up of just consonants.  So ~trndy~ & much awkward as we make gasping sounds trying to pronounce them to our friends/colleagues. Let’s drop vowels like it’s hot. read more…

FYI: My Personal *Strutting* Playlist

By strutting I mean walking, but let’s be honest: When songs like these come on, your walk is /really/ more like a strut.

Everywhere I go I’m constantly plugged into my iPhone. I have specific playlists for everything – from writing an essay to making pancakes on a Sunday. Don’t judge me, my mom appreciates my playlist (hi mom!) so, I’ve decided to share with all of you, my walking playlist. I take it with me walking downtown, walking from class to class, and now…walking to FORA. Put those giant sunglasses on, grab that leather jacket and click play! read more…

MIXTAPE: Solo Dolo

Whoever said “one is the loneliest number” clearly didn’t know Beyoncé. Following in queen B’s footsteps, Fall 2014 is packed with band mates flying solo dolo. Exhibit A: Bloc Party’s Kele Okereke announced his first solo album since The Boxer (2010). Exhibit B: There’s a new single from Radiohead’s drummer on the airwaves. Exhibit C: All of Hot Chip is trying on their solo outfits as Joe Goddard and Raf Rundell release a new album under the name The 2 Bears. And lastly, who can forget Karen O’s first one women LP endeavor Crush Songs released in September? This can only mean one thing: it’s true what they say- deep down everyone just wants to be Beyoncé. read more…

MIXTAPE: Brooklyn We Go Hard

According to Lana Del Rey, the markings of a true Brooklyn Baby include (but are not limited to): a rare jazz collection, a boyfriend in a band, and the ability to name drop members of The Velvet Underground. Of course, a fondness for beat poetry gets you extra points – but let’s stick to the basics. After all, this week’s mixtape is all about sounds from the homeland of H.O.V.A. himself. In celebration of my longtime favourite Brooklyn band TV On The Radio releasing their forthcoming studio LP (November 18), here’s a nod to the best of’s from the best borough. No questions. read more…
