Morning Jam: Beck “Dreams”

26 Jun

ToyyPRh

Thank goddess for whatever Tame Impala/Nile Rodgers inspired acid trip Beck was on at the time of writing his new single, “Dreams”, because this song is what my dreams are made of.

I could have lived off the heart and mind explosion his last album Morning Phase caused me, but I’m glad he’s back to kick it up a notch with this new single and ultimately new album. “Dreams” is out now on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon. Listen to “Dreams” via Spotify below.

Beck will be playing Nile Rodger’s FOLD (Freak Out Let’s Dance) Festival in Riverhead, NY on August 4th! I would love to see Nile Rodgers play the guitar part of “Dreams” at this festival…just throwing it out there Beck/universe (make this happen!). Get your tickets now here!

morning jam: AVAN LAVA “Wanna Live” + Show Recap!

1 Jun

avanlava by solidstares

Wow. I don’t know what to say besides AVAN LAVA are an incredible band, in the studio and especially on stage.

When Avan Lava took the stage at Milkboy last Wednesday, I knew it was going to be good…but it wasn’t just good, it was fucking spectacular. The show started with full force and stayed that way all the way through. Playing most of their new album Make It Real (out now on Atlas Chair Records), the band showered us with confetti cannons, an epic light show, and synchronized dances. Thanks to the electric energy from the band, the Philly crowd got a dance workout worthy of Studio54.

Lead singer TC Hennes has an incredible, boundless voice that soaring whether he was dancing, jumping out into the crowd, or straight-up standing on his head doing yoga poses on the stage. You can tell that the band is having an amazing time together and the show becomes the ultimate dance party. The crowd did not want the show to end, and luckily the band agreed to an encore.

Avan Lava then ended their show strong with their cover of one of my favorite songs by Mark Ronson and the Business Intl. “Somebody To Love Me”. If you haven’t seen this band yet, make sure you are closely following them on Songkick to see when they are coming to your town. If you love to dance, it’s an experience you do not want to miss.

Buy Avan Lava’s new album Make It Real here!

Check out some images from the show by my friend Solid Stares:

late night listen: Shy Luv “Caught Up On You”

31 May

Is it me or are the weekends flying by this summer? The sun is shining in Philly and there is so much to experience in two short days. Seeing Braids last night at Union Transfer was absolutely magical, and a total highlight of this weekend for me.

I’m celebrating the last day of the weekend with “Caught Up On You” by Shy Luv as the soundtrack. This upbeat, sensual jam will have you dancing away the rest of the weekend. A perfect song for parties, barbecues, or straight up getting your dance workout for the month.

Listen to Shy Luv’s “Caught Up On You” below and if you like what you hear, make sure you follow them on Facebook, Soundcloud and Twitter.

Let’s all take a moment to give this gorgeous song with much Philly respect a listen as well. Let it soak in and let Shy Luv become your new favorite band:

afternoon jam: Tame Impala “Disciples”

30 Apr

Kevin Parker, aka Tame Impala released a gorgeous new single “Disciples” from his highly anticipated third album Currents. The track is one minute and forty-eight seconds of pure bliss. Every new single Tame Impala has released so far has my heart exploding and my ears dying to hear this new album in full.

Tame Impala will be playing Levitation Festival (formally known as Austin Psych Fest) next weekend and thankfully I will be there to bask in the glory of this new music. The band will also be playing Shaky Knees Festival in Atlanta next weekend. Tame Impala are currently on tour in the US so make sure you get tickets for the city nearest you! For tickets and more US tour information click here to follow them on Songkick.

Kevin Parker also did an ‘Ask Me Anything’ or AMA on Reddit last night! To read the conversation click here.

The band has several UK Festival dates this summer, so make sure you check them out in a city near you. Hopefully they will be heading stateside to serenade me soon, but until then, I am living vicariously through you. Send me all the pics and video from their shows @mylifeinsound.

If this bass line doesn’t make you weak in the knees I don’t know what will!
