Hip Hip Hooray

1 Mar

Today was a good day. Slept in, fought off sickness, got a bunch of work done, then found 3 awesome new songs IN A ROW. That never happens.

These songs are pretty hip.  And chill…  like…  chillip,  bro.

“The Reflection of You” is a new track from Brooklyn-based (hip) rock group: Bear in Heaven (I first read it as “Beer in Heaven” (so chilll))

Download

“!N3V3R SL33P!” is a relaxing single (chill) with an ironic  title (hip) via the Brooklyn-based (hip) Poor Spirits

Download

“Harvest Moon” by the LA-based Poolside (chill, bro) and is music they like to call “daytime disco” (hip)

The Vermont Post: Stevie Wonder, Teen Daze, and Portugal. The Man.

12 Jan

Spent a week partying in Burlington which consisted of a lot of loud music and dance parties. The music of choice at my friends house was funk-  surprisingly fun and a needed break from electronic. I forgot to grab Robin’s playlist, but here’s an example:

Coincidentally, while I was there I found Teen Daze’s new song- “Let’s Groove”

Download

I was also introduced to Portugal. The Man, an  Alaskan/Oregonian indie rock group.

M83 Post #4

7 Nov

This makes the fourth about M83’s new album Hurry Up We’re Dreaming. Album of the year?

This is a fan-made video for “Wait”, features footage about a monkey going into space. From what I can gather, the chimp is probably “Ham”, the first chimp launched into space in 1961. Ham was chosen out of 40 chimp candidates and received much examination and training, including lever pushing, which he conducted while in space. Clips of free speech protests, MLK, JFK, and war are also shown towards the climax, ending with the monkey’s perspective of earth from space, just a small blue dot. This shit is on another level.  “There is no end. There is no goodbye. Disappear with the night… No time… No time…”
