UMMMM, YEAH. I am reposting this. Since I posted this on March 31st Peace added a super hot music video to match this incredible song…. Gooooooood Goddess. I’m in love.
Sweet dreams are made of this! I was completely entranced when I heard “Follow Baby” for the first time, and I’ve listened every day since. I love absolutely everything about this song, the instrumentals are sick and the vocals are hauntingly, well, hot. As if the clever accents weren’t enough, songs and bands like this are why American girls can’t help but love British guys… or, maybe it’s just me. Peace are from Birmingham, UK and are currently on tour stopping tonight in Luton to play The Edge. Peace are continuing their tour in April with another favorite of mine, Mystery Jets. This song by Peace, “Follow Baby”, is out on April 23rd, so make sure you get the track and see them on their tour if they come to a venue near you. If you get to meet them at a show, tell them I said to come to the US, specifically Philly, and to date me. Thanks!

Kindness was one of the musicians I couldn’t wait to see at SXSW Music Festival, and being able to see him live was just as incredible as I imagined. I love that he toured with some insanely talented musicians and singers, really adding and perfecting his sound for a live audience. Not to mention how fun it was! Seeing people live that love performing is contagious. It makes you, as an audience member want to dance, sing along, and make you want to have as much fun as you possibly can. This is the perfect song to make your heart happy everyday and will definitely be a part of my summer soundtrack this year!
Hold the phone people! British soul artist Michael Kiwanuka took SXSW by STORM when he played shows for the festival in Texas this past March. SXSW attendees responded accordingly by becoming obsessed with him and his gorgeous music. So much so, that Michael Kiwanuka is releasing his debut album Home Again today in the US exclusively through Itunes!! The album was originally due to release on July 30th, but thank our lucky stars we don’t have to wait that long anymore! Make sure you pick up your copy of the absolutely beautiful debut album of Michael Kiwanuka, Home Again and make sure you see him on tour when he comes to a city near you! I cannot wait to see him in Philly in June!
