late night listen xx: Ben Khan “Drive (Part 1)”

15 Apr

Ben Khan

I’m back from a road trip from Philly to Coachella and 4 glorious, ridiculous, absolutely incredible days in California. After two hours of sleep and a day working, I could not be more pumped to deliver you a dark, sultry, addictive new track from British dreamboat Ben Khan for tonight’s late night listen.

I’ve had “Drive (Part 1)” on repeat all day and definitely added it to the Makeout Music Playlist for your hearing pleasure. The track is from Ben Khan’s upcoming 1992 EP due out May 5th which you can pre-order now here! I’m already obsessed with the EP and can’t wait to hear more new music and am looking forward to his full length album. His music is perfect for getting down in a live setting and I’m also hoping he heads over to the States to grace us all with those knee-weakening tunes in concert.

To keep up with Ben Khan, follow him on Facebook, Soundcloud, Twitter, and track future shows on Songkick here.

morning jam xx: Pixel Fix “Fall”

27 Feb

Pixel Fix

What is happening in Oxford? I am finding so many amazing musicians and bands surfacing from there it’s enough to pick up and move.

Take Pixel Fix for example. Their new song “Fall” from their EP by the same name (out now) has been on heavy rotation for me recently…not to mention the rest of the gorgeous EP.

A stunning mix of alternative and electronica, through their Fall Ep Pixel Fix have created a seductive, mesmerizing collection of music for our ears. In fact, it was difficult not to add all their tracks to the Mylifeinsound Makeout Mix on Soundcloud!

Pixel Fix are currently touring in Europe, to find a date near you and get tickets, click here! To follow them on Songkick click here! Check out their music video for “Fall” now and their EP below:

Afternoon jam xx: James Vincent McMorrow “Cavalier” (The 1975 Remix)

24 Jan

JVM

The 1975 have released a remix of James Vincent McMorrow’s gorgeous single “Cavalier” off of his second album out now Post Tropical. The track is one of my absolute favorites from the album and the remix from The 1975 is stunning. It’s great to see when your favorite bands not only support each other, but also can hear their music and deliver it back in a new light. The 1975 took the magnificently heartbreaking and soulful track and made it light, airy, and upbeat. I can’t decide which one I like better, but I know that they will both not get old when listening to them on repeat.

James Vincent McMorrow is an extremely talented songwriter and that is apparent throughout Post Tropical. Pouring in and out of each track, the entire album grabs your heartstrings and doesn’t let them go for long after you are done listening.

Post Tropical is a clear step forward from McMorrow’s first album Early In The Morning. The albums share some similarities that made his debut record your favorite, yet with a plethora of new instruments and influences. The storytelling words in Post Tropical feel full of life backed by epic drums, pedal steel, piano, layers of vocals, harp, horns, and guitars…making each song more epic and symphonic than the last. Some of my favorite tracks from the album include “Cavalier”, “Red Dust”, “Gold”, the soft, smooth and soulful “Repeating”, and the moving closing track “Outside, Digging”. The truth of the matter is, this is an album-lover’s album…it’s meant to be listened to and loved all the way through, my favorite kind of album.

I can’t wait to hear and see this beautiful record preformed live by James Vincent McMorrow on his upcoming tour, which is stopping in Philly at Union Transfer the day after my birthday, April 5th. Happy Birthday to me! I wouldn’t want to spend my birthday weekend any other way. For tickets and more information go here! For all other James Vincent McMorrow tour dates click here!
