lovelovelove: Fenech-Soler “All I Know”

20 Nov

I am absolutely loving the new single “All I Know” by Fenech-Soler!

“All I Know” starts and you already know it was meant for a dance floor. It’s the perfect track to give you the energy you need to get through your work day, and to dance to when you go out. The music video is super trippy and awesome. Fenech-Soler currently reside in London and have no announced tour dates, but you can sign up through email to hear tour and pre-sale information first here. “All I Know” is available now here!

Philly show NOT to be missed xx: The Helio Sequence, Hooray For Earth, and Ramona Falls at Underground Arts TONIGHT!!!!

17 Nov

This week for me has been nothing short of insane. Non-stop working, running from place to place, very little time to rest. This weekend was greeted by one of my best friends from home coming over Friday night. We were going to wreak our original havoc of drinking too much vodka and energy drinks, dancing/sweating the night away, but we both looked each other in the eye and said “mmm NOPE.” Instead of our usual Friday night dance party we made a fort with all my couches and futon, 12 blankets and 15 pillows, ate ourselves into a food-coma, and watched Love Actually, our favorite movie ever.

I woke up early and got one of my greatest workouts attending my work’s sample sale. I am pretty sure I got winter clothes for a lifetime and all my holiday gifts in one go. After, my best friend and I went to our favorite restaurant for brunch and drank one too many pitchers of mimosa and sang our favorite Hall & Oates tunes like it was free for all karaoke hour(s)…it wasn’t.

Tonight I am so stoked to make up for my lack of dance this weekend by getting my groove on to The Helio Sequence, Hooray For Earth and Ramona Falls at Underground Arts at 9PM tonight! I’ve loved Hooray For Earth for quite some time now (their song “No Love” is my JAM). Their music is the perfect blend of indie and dance that I yearn for. With brilliant instrumentals and harmonizing, anthemic, vocals, their music is impossible not to dance to. I can’t wait to see them live tonight! Check out Never/Figure out now!

obsessed xx: Alt-J ∆ ft. Mountain Man “Buffalo”

13 Nov

sigh. Alt-J seriously can do no wrong. Just as the needle of my record player was about to burn a hole in my Alt-J debut record An Awesome Wave from listening to it too much, I was ecstatic to see-via their Facebook-a new track thanks to the upcoming film Silver Linings! The film stars a bunch of rad people including the foxiest of foxes Bradley Cooper…see below.


I’m guessing the movie is a cute love story about two crazies that fall in love. Let’s face it though, it doesn’t really matter what the film about because I am getting a vision of Bradley Cooper with Alt-J playing in the background and I’m pretty sure you can’t get much better than that.

Check out Alt-J’s new track featuring Mountain Man “Buffalo” below and make sure you see them live and buy their record if you don’t have it already. Or a second or third copy from when your first one gets worn down from you playing it too much.

obsessed xx: Wild Belle “It’s Too Late”

12 Nov

Welp, happens to the best of us. Chase someone, thinking they’re the greatest, they could care less about you, and then when you move on to the other foxes in the forest, that’s when they want you. Well, in most cases, it’s the other person’s loss, and for Wild Belle, they are majorly winning with this epic track and music video.

Super-hot siblings, Natalie and Elliot Bergman, are the incredible Chicago duo who go by Wild Belle. I love the kooky 70s reminiscent music video for this track, I’m obsessed with all of Natalie’s outfits, and you know my heart bleeds for her extremely saxy brother Elliot.

“It’s Too Late” is available to purchase now through Columbia Records. Wild Belle are currently on tour and will stop in Philadelphia at Union Transfer February 11 2013!!

Philly show NOT to be missed xx: The Amazing and Tame Impala tonight at Union Transfer!!!!

8 Nov

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!! For those of us lucky enough to have tickets to the very sold-out Tame Impala show tonight with The Amazing as support are in for an ultra-dreamy night of music.

Some of my favorite Aussies on earth, Tame Impala, return to Philly after releasing their new record Lonerism, which, I think it’s fair to say, is a favorite of everyone who has heard it. I am so stoked to see them again tonight at one of my favorite venues in the city Union Transfer.

Here is a shot I took last year when they played First Unitarian Church, aka a church basement that got sweaty as soon as Tame Impala entered the room.

Not much else to say about this photo besides God bless Australia.

Tame Impala fans are extra lucky this tour as the band has brought along Sweden’s The Amazing as support. The Amazing have also released a gorgeous new album, Gentle Stream, that I can’t stop listening to. The record sounds like one you would find in your parents collection of classics: where they have one copy that looked like it got played at least twice every day throughout the 60s and 70s to today; and another copy in it’s original packaging in a frame on the wall. In fact, that’s not a bad idea because I am sure this is a record our future kids will look back on and say “You had it so good back in the day! Your music was incredible! I can’t believe you saw The Amazing and Tame Impala live!”. Gentle Stream is nostalgic, free-spirited and hopeful, and somehow confuses my heart into believing it’s still summer even though it is snowing outside… and that is a record I want to keep very close at all times.

I can’t wait to see both bands live tonight. If you have tickets, doors are at 8 and the show starts at 8:30, so make sure you get there on time so you don’t miss any of The Amazing, and as usual if you see me come say hi! Tame Impala and The Amazing will be continuing their tour hitting Boston tomorrow, and ending in Los Angeles on the 17th, make sure you see them in a city near you!

Check out The Amazing’s new music video for “Flashlight” below and stream their full album Gentle Stream here, and Tame Impala’s Lonerism through Spotify here.
