Spring Party Weekend

19 Apr

It’s that time of the year when professors leave upstate New York in fear of the wrath of Spring Party Weekend. Three (or four, or five) days of insane college students getting drunk on lawns, attending concerts, and not remembering any of it. If you want, you can jump in a pool of Jello, or maybe some beach volleyball is more your cup of tea. Barbecues are lit up, even if it rains, and campus tours for potential applicants are cancelled.

This year, Avicii is the main stage performer (I don’t want to think about how much of my tuition is going towards this concert).  Following this is a foam party with Kap Slap. 80s cover bands, and Springsteen cover bands, add to the collection of events.

As we’ve mentioned before on Unfound, Kap Slap is originally from our high school and damn, he makes some good music. Here is his recent mix of Swedish House Mafia with “Call Me Maybe.”

Things are about to get nuts at Colgate. As Walter Cronkite said in 1972: “There are two places in the world I wouldn’t want my daughter to be … Vietnam and Colgate during Spring Party Weekend.”

I feel so bad for Adele’s ex-boyfriends

9 Jan

Download

I’m a sucker for Adele. Admittedly, I have the biggest girl crush on her (or maybe just her voice?). Anyways, I feel horribly for her past lovers as her songs are incredibly powerful, raw, and well…flat-out depressing. Obviously “Someone Like You”  fits well in this category of epic Adele break-up songs, but I love that Clark Kent remixed it so that the depression of the song is a bit diminished. Pretty cool sounds.

1 month without Aussies

21 Dec

Today marks one month since I’ve been home from Oz. I definitely miss the place, the lovely city of Sydney, the beaches, the parks, the people, the accents…

This popular song by Gotye was definitely the most notable song that I picked up and heard (like everyday) while I was there.

The Pregame Handbook

15 Nov

It’s not a pregame unless there’s music. Playing the proper music at your pregame isn’t about having one good playlist, it’s about to catering to the crowd and the occasion you’re drinking for. Here’s a mini-playlist for your different types of friends and helping them get from a to b (where b may be drunkland or cloud9). Hopefully these songs keep your friends’ paws off your iPod/laptop.

There’s a lot of mash-ups and I’ve tried not to include any songs I’ve already posted. (Downloads are in batches when size limit allowed). Enjoy.

Naked and Famous

1 Sep

You should have already heard of this group. These New Zealander’s came out hits like “Young Blood” and “Punching in a Dream” I posted over a year ago with their debut album. Here’s another song I didn’t catch on to until just now, its the last one on the album. See them at Park Life next month in Sydney.

Alex Winston “Sister Wife”

15 Aug

You probably thought we broke up since the last seemingly million posts have been by Him. Rest assuredly, I am still here.

And here’s some awesome chick music for you to enjoy. I hate to love (and simultaneously love to hate) Alex Winston’s “Sister Wife.” Her whiny voice is annoying but oh, so catchy. To make this song more enigmatic is the subject of a sister wife. Furthermore she creates a ridiculously creepy music video involving old women, scary white cats, kimonos, and slithering snakes. My reaction is purely, wtf. And I keep listening and listening.
