Morning Jam xx: Southern “Where I Want To Be”

23 Jul

southern

Do I need to marry into this family to join the band? If so, I’m okay with that. Lucy and Thom Southern are the brother-sister duo that make this incredible Belfast-born, Liverpool-based bluesy, rock’n’roll powerhouse.

Southern released another electric single “Where I Want To Be” due out August 18th! The track has the brother-sister vocal harmonies you know and love with seductive, body-moving instrumentals, and lyrics to sing at the top of your lungs. Southern have stayed true to releasing singles to soundtrack your summer and “Where I Want To Be” is a great addition. To buy Southern’s self-titled EP click here. Follow Southern on Facebook, Twitter and Songkick for tour dates.

morning jam xx: Interpol “All The Rage Back Home”

22 Jul

interpol

Interpol have been all the rage in my heart for years now. I recently became fixated on listening to their albums on repeat, so they could not have picked a better time to release new music into my life. “All The Rage Back Home” picks up right where Interpol left off, by delivering us mesmerizing instrumentals, infectious lyrics, and sing-a-long chorus’ that stay in your head for days. “All The Rage Back Home” is a strong first single from what should be an epic new album from the band. Interpol’s new album El Pintor is available now for pre-order here!

Interpol have announced a North American and European tour. Sadly, Philadelphia’s show at Union Transfer has sold out so hopefully you got your tickets! If not, Interpol just announced additional dates for NYC, London, and Dublin. For more information about when Interpol is coming to your town and to get your tickets click here.

I’m going to come right out and say it. I love Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. Their new album, Only Run, reminds us of their unique sound that only gets better with age.

Let’s face it, the guys are indie rock legends and they are playing at Johnny Brenda’s, one of Philadelphia’s most beautiful and intimate clubs, TONIGHT. How lucky are we?! Of course the show is sold out, and I am anticipating dancing and getting sweaty on this magical summer night with all of you. The show starts at 9:30PM with Stagnant Pools opening, so don’t be late. Get there, pay attention, and stand post where you want to be for your glorious reunion with one of your favorite bands.

His addictive single “Riptide” is one that will stay in your head for days and you’ll want it to stay there. If you don’t get the chance to come to Firefly this weekend, make sure you catch him at Lollapalooza and Outside Lands festivals later this summer!

obsessed xx: Arctic Monkeys new music video for “Snap Out Of It”!!!!

17 Jun

130517-03-337-photo-credit-zackery-michael-hi-res

For a girl with an Alex Turner mouse pad at work, I have to say the struggle is real, but thank goddess I am not as psychotic as the crazed fan in the music video for “Snap Out Of It”. Many fans are commenting on the video that they think it’s an egotistical move on Alex Turner’s part…Instead, I think it’s hilarious.

Arctic Monkey have always had a great sense of humor with everything they do and I think this video proves that. The star of this music video is, stereotypically, a gorgeous model. When she comes out of the pool in the beginning of the video, she could be anyone’s dream girl. Then, we see her true colors. She is a psycho stalker of the band and her obsession with them, particularly Alex Turner, is pretty terrifying. Paired with the whimsical music and lyrics of “Snap Out Of It,” it’s clear that the band is getting a message across that they don’t get anyone liking or obsessing over them that much. With her crying and some of the faces she makes in the video, I couldn’t help but laugh the entire way through. Again, I don’t think it’s an egotistical move on Alex Turner’s part or the band as a whole. I think it’s hysterical! Hopefully you do too.

Check out the video below and make sure you see Arctic Monkeys play Firefly Music Festival in Dover, DE this Friday. I will be there, dancing harder than the model at the end of this video.

morning jam xx: Looks “Everest”

14 Jun

Looks Washed out

Happy Saturday people! It’s been an insane past month. After going to 5 different cities in England in 9 days, and burying myself in music, I immediately went to Seattle, another mecca for music fans. Now I’m back in Philly and I can’t even comprehend the amount of shows in the next coming week you absolutely can not miss. That post will follow, so keep your eyes peeled.

One of my favorite moments this week was hearing this gorgeous new track from London-based band Looks. I wish I knew of them/found them while I was over there because there is no doubt in my mind that they will be one of my favorite new bands this year. Their new single, “Everest” takes you on a journey with gorgeous, layered, vocals and mesmerizing, blood-pumping instrumentals. The track is a perfect mixture of modern and nostalgic sounds that carry their way through your ears and straight to your veins.

“Everest” drops on June 23rd and Looks are having a single launch party show at Birthdays in London the following day! The show is FREE and will also feature Holy as support. RSVP on Facebook here and send it to all of your friends. Doors are at 8PM and the show is 18+ if you are anywhere near the London area, go and dance your hearts out for me.

Streets of Laredo

NYC is taking over Philly tomorrow night, sending two of their best, Streets of Laredo and Mother to Boot & Saddle tomorrow night. The show starts at 8:30PM and is only $10 if you get your tickets now here or at AKA records.

Starting off the show is Mother, a brooklyn-based band featuring actor/megababe Penn Badgley (because, why wouldn’t he be well rounded with talent?). Mother released their infectious first single “Easy” via Neon Gold. The synth-pop track oozes seduction and will make fans fall in love on the dance floor this Wednesday night. You can buy “Easy” on iTunes now here in preparation. Their second track “Victim” is another bluesy, seductive synth pop track complete with a saxophone solo that will make you week in the knees. Hopefully break out the sax tomorrow night at Boot & Saddle!





Streets of Laredo are an indie-band from New Zealand who now call Brooklyn home. They have an indie rock/folk sound with a kick of energy to perfectly soundtrack your house parties and summer drives. The band are currently touring in support of their Volume I and Volume II EPs before heading out on tour with Kaiser Chiefs! Make sure you see them now in this intimate venue while you can.






Get through the rest of the week with the help of great live music featuring Mother and Streets of Laredo tomorrow night at Boot and Saddle! Doors are at 8PM and the show starts at 8:30PM, make sure you get there on time so you don’t miss the opening bands.
