It's Monday and we're guessing you may need a little motivation to make it through this week. Enter, Terror Pigeon's latest jam "BYOYOLO." Aside from the majesty that is the mashup of two of our most favorite abbrevs, the main message to "go and fuck the shit of our your dreams" of this song is nothing short of inspirational.

Listen, dance, and then seriously go and fuck the shit out of your dreams today, guys.

sun & heir is my jam

When a band aims for their music to have "unique, acoustic, and alternative folk" sound, there's a good chance I'm going to like them -- especially when they're likened to The Lumineers and The Head and the Heart. This is Sun & Heir in a nutshell, and these Indianans are filling a gap in my heart left by the two aforementioned bands as well as Milo Greene as they've all been off recording. Sun & Heir, though -- they're the perfect replacement.

"Weekend" makes me so ready for Thanksgiving, even though I technically only live 20 minutes from home.

And "Breathe My Mind" is perfect for this transition into fall.

Get a sampler from these lovely humans on Noisetrade while you can!!

{WATCH} spark: a burning man story

Full confession, I did not have a real grasp on what Burning Man was a few weeks ago, besides that quick mention of it in Just Friends (don't judge). However, after watching the documentary on this much-discussed festival, I have a much better understanding and appreciation for this week of free spirit, art, and community.

The documentary is available on Netflix and I definitely recommend watching on a lazy weekend morning such a this.

Also, the song in the trailer by Rudimental is SO.GOOD.
