weekend thoughts...

Happy Friday, loves! Whether you plan to spend the weekend rekindling your dying fling with Summer or you're jumping into your new relationship with Fall in your freshest pair of boots, we hope you have fun! Kick off a hopefully relaxing weekend with some jams and linky links below. 

Your Weekend Jam: We’re continuing to plead with summer to get back together with us one more time with HOLYCHILD’s “Happy With Me.” Be sure to catch them live at 9:30 Club on Monday!



TIOJ Thoughts:

Beautiful images soundtracked to Clean Bandit’s “Rather Be” -- we’re in heaven.

ZZ Ward is a curator for Piperlime! Our wallets may be in danger…

Yoga as an x-ray is so weird and creepy and cool.

Janelle Monae on Sesame Street!

Since it’s Krista’s birthday weekend, we’re going to use Wikipedia’s list of Top 100 songs from every year and make a birth-year playlist! (pretty sure we’re going to get Rick Rolled in the process...oh well)

Free! Mapei's gorgeous electro R&B hit "Don't Wait" that killed the Hype Machine charts is available for free this week on iTunes! Check out the remix feat. Chance the Rapper below.



DC Happenings: How To Dress Well is at U Street Music Hall on Saturday night and and HOLYCHILD are at 9:30 Club on Monday!

And in case you missed it: We played "compare and contrast" with songstress Odessa and producer extraordinaires Odesza.

And! We put out our third festival recap video from All Thing Go's Fall Classic!!

{PLAYLIST} remember what we had, summer!

It's that inevitable time of year where summer slowly and sadly departs us. Because we're not quite ready for fall weather and boots and crunchy leaves despite the official start of autumn next Tuesday, we always feel like summer is breaking our hearts by leaving us rather abruptly. (Speaking of abrupt, how have you all been dealing with the 55 degree mornings this week??)



Ugh, summer. We miss you already.

{RECAP} all things go fall classic: the video

We're still riding a high this week from the awesome time we had last weekend at All Things Go's Fall Classic. Relive the experience of seeing Future Islands live with this stellar recap video from AV Director Caleb!!

{THROWBACK} "let me love you"

We've got a new Australian singer to put on your radar on this #tbt. Meet Wafia whose cover of Mario's classic "Let Me Love You" is impossible not to desk dance to. If you're a fan of Lorde, you'll love Wafia's cover.



And Mario's 2004 hit, which is making me want to re-watch Step Up.

odessa vs. odesza

In today's game of compare and contrast, we've got two rising talents to discuss songstress Odessa and production duo ODESZA.

First up is Odessa whose calming and beautiful first release "I Will Be There" took our breath away at first listen. This California singer just has a four-song EP out but if this single is any indication, we're expecting to hear much more of Odessa's gorgeous and heartfelt lyrics in the future.



Switch out just one letter (and hit caps lock) and we've got our next group ODESZA whose music makes us want to get up and dance rather than snuggle deeper into our blankets/man friends. The single off their debut album "Say My Name" warranted a glowing feat. feature last week and has gotten so much hype that they've already sold out their upcoming show at U Street Music Hall.



Now, since ODESZA is a production duo that enjoys featuring female vocalists and Odessa has the voice of an angel, let's all pray for collaboration between these two parties, shall we?
