Where do I start?
It feels like almost a relief to be back on the East Coast, only because I’m willing to admit that I probably could not handle another day of Coachella. It’s a beast of a wild time. This year we were able to expand our camping group to 20+ different people and there’s no telling what next year will be like.
If you haven’t noticed, the festival scene has exploded as of late. I can’t turn my head around without hearing of a new event packed with a slew of artists waiting to wow you. Each one is entirely different from the next, varying in genres, tiers of artists, camping vs. non-camping; these things have seriously evolved. This is where the music industry is going.
During the phenomenal Radiohead set on Saturday night Thom Yorke said it best, music is about being together and the sense of community we have at these things. To me music is extremely personal, it performs as the soundtrack to my life, a constant ebb and flow. But being in the middle of a sea of tens of thousands of people all consumed by the lights, synths, and strong percussion; it really felt like something else.
As Coachella is one of the only places I will completely keep my phone off and separated for days at a time, I won’t be giving you the minute-by-minute timeline of what I was doing. I will give you some insight on who I saw after 3pm those days though, and trust me, that heat was brutal in the campgrounds before the sun went down. Continue reading

I’m almost half-relieved this Holiday season is behind us.
I had a fabulous time but I’m ready to get back on schedule, be caught up on my emails and actually ahead on things, and going to bed at normal hours of the night. This time of the year also brings around the workout trend. You know, like when it was cool to go to the gym again. This playlist comes just in time from the good people at Run Hundred and their voters.

I’ve had a very, very long day…and then I came home to fleas. Awesome.
But you know what’s actually awesome, instead of me being facetious I’ll just gift you all with some fab tunes. How about that?
I need to crack this fucking Frontline open and give myself a flea bath. My dog is sleeping in the hall tonight.
Kaleidoscope (feat Jonsi) – Tiesto I would never guess such an expansive song would be produced by Tiesto but I’m pretty sure that’s just the Jonsi factor going on. It’s calming yet climbs and climbs throughout the entire 7 minute song, slowly layering instruments. It’s an older one, beautiful.
Naked Kids – GROUPLOVE I saw these guys a ton in the media tent at Lolla and can honestly say they’re a truly happy-go-lucky bunch. They seemed so content and gracious to be there that the story about how they all came together as a band is that more believable. The journey that led them to where they are today was all about pure love, how can you not enjoy listening to their music?
Shuffle A Dream – Little Dragon Good god I am just falling in love with Ritual Union.
This Could Take A Lifetime – Maria Taylor I know, the other day I just posted Maria Taylor but c’mon, that voice just fills me up. And today she just dropped Overlook, which I know now I definitely need to pick up. This is her first album being back in Birmingham, Alabama and she sounds completely at ease. I’ve heard “Matador” and other tracks from the album and know this stands to be one of her finest pieces of work yet. Finally, if you ever see her playing in your city don’t let me catch you at home.
Don’t forget to right-click and enjoy.
