rock out with the districts

This live Buzzsession with The Districts is just what the doctor ordered today. While we're slightly disappointed that these guys aren't our neighbors in The District, we will forgive them because their rock music is great and brings to mind favorites like Kings of Leon, Black Keys, and Harmonic Blue.

Rock out with The Districts below!

misun bids goodbye to summer

While summer never truly ends after Labor Day in DC, we had to share Misun's latest track "Goodbye Summer" that is so wonderfully fitting for this holiday. Bonus points for the oldies influence on this track -- it totally enhances our melancholy at saying goodbye to movies in the park, Jazz in the gardens, and sunshine all day long.

Bring it on, boot season.

{PLAYLIST} best of august 2014

While we're super sad that the end of August brings the unofficial end of summer, we sure do love reminiscing on what a great summer this was. In August we were able to catch THUMPERS, and we were listening to:

"Life of Sin" - Sturgill Simpson
This singer is a breath of fresh country air.
"Say You Love Me" - Jessie Ware
Jessie Ware's latest song gave us all of the feelings this month. 
"Song for You" - Less is More
Thanks to this song, I made it through my last week of school!
"Sound of Screams" - Thumpers
Thumpers was one of our favorite (and only) live shows this month -- so perfect for summer!
"Waiting on June" - Holly Williams
Without fail, this beautiful song makes me cry each time I hear it.
"lovers' carvings" - Bibio
This older track by Bibio has been my mellow soundtrack for these last lazy days of summer.
"Dogwood" - Whiskey Myers
Whiskey Myers, I dub you honorary Virginians.
"Smile" - Mikky Ekko
Delighted with Mikky Ekko's new optimistic single.
"Let Go" - Like Swimming
Not only are these the cutest Swedes, their music is quite darling as well.
"Arrows (feat. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis)" - Fences
This jam snuck on to our radar at the end of July and we can't get enough.

{WATCH} bleachers' "thank you very much"

To promote his upcoming tour, Bleachers put together this perfectly '90s-inspired cable access show "Thank You Very Much." The show includes interviews with '90s sitcom stars, call-in cameos from Lena Dunham, and live music performances that give Jesse and the Rippers a run for their money.

DC! Bleachers will be playing at the 9:30 Club on Wednesday, September 3!!
