- Jetted off to France and left the blog in the very capable hands of the coolest babysitters around: American Authors, The 1975, PLOY, PYYRAMIDS, The Postelles, and Lenka.
- Debuted our first video with a recap of Firefly 2013, thanks to newly-appointed A/V Director Caleb!
- Heard from Allie over at Wardrobe Oxygen about how super Forecastle Festival was.
- Got SO excited when the Virgin Mobile Freefest lineup for 2013 was released!
"Dreaming" - Smallpools
This song is so addictive and so perfect for summertime.
"Hey Now"- London Grammar
This song is so ethereal and somber--it gives me chills.
"Best Day of My Life" - American Authors
I haven't been able to get enough of this song for months, and American Authors were just the best babysitters!
"Falling" - HAIM
Even after hearing this jam literally hundreds of times while working on our Firefly recap video, I still can't get enough of it.
"Next Door Neighbor Blues" - Gary Clark Jr.
I want Gary Clark Jr. to be my bluesy, gruff best friend.
"Tell It To Me" - Old Crow Medicine Show
OCMS was the background music for my college years... they're just so wonderfully lovely.
"Love Like This" - Wild Belle
I can't get enough of the cool reggae vibes of this brother-sister pair.
"Ring Them Bells" - Sarah Jarosz
Ever since I first saw her perform on an episode of Austin City Limits I've been charmed.
"Further On" - Bronze Radio Return
They jump around a field and play banjos. Uh, hello.
"Monte Carlo Dreams" - Phil Ade
So happy that I stumbled upon this rap remix of U.S. Royalty's jam.
"I Swear" - All-4-One
If you don't still swoon when you hear this song, you either didn't have a childhood or you are a robot.
"Down With the Shine" - The Avett Brothers
Gah. These boys.
"Blessed" - ScHoolboy Q feat. Kendrick Lamar
One of my most favorite of Kendrick Lamar's cameos out there.
"Moi Je Joue" - Brigitte Bardot
Mais oui, j'aime cette chanson.
"Long Hot Summer Day" - Turnpike Troubadours
This song has more or less been soundtracking my summer.
On tap for August: closing out the summer (already?!) with even more jams.
