lovelovelove: Savages “Husbands”

18 Jun

Sick sick sick!!! I love music that completely rocks with a strong female lead. When I found out the entire band was women that rock I was stoked! Listening to Savages “Husbands” I couldn’t help but love the dirty guitar sound and Patti Smith-channeling vocals. Savages are a four-piece all-girl band from London and you can pre-order their 7″ single through Pop Noire Records here.


lovelovelove: First Aid Kit “Emmylou”

18 Jan

First Aid Kit consists of two gorgeous sisters from Stockholm, Sweden who make absolutely beautiful music together. “Emmylou” is the second single from their new album, The Lion’s Roar comes out next Tuesday, January 24th. I love their light, vintage, acoustic-folk sound, their effortless vocal harmonies, and their beautiful storytelling lyrics. They are playing at Union Transfer in Philly on March 31st! You can purchase tickets here. Their tour starts in February, so if you don’t live in Philly and love their music make sure you check out their tour dates here! Watching these sisters perform together is just inspiring, even when it’s on tv. Last year they performed Patti Smith and Ivan Kral’s “Dancing Barefoot” at the Polaris Music Prize ceremony, and brought Patti Smith, watching in the audience, to tears. How incredible it must have been to even perform that song in the same room, let alone have your performance move her to tears. Listen to “Emmy Lou” and check out the video of First Aid Kit performing “Dancing Barefoot” below:

Her music speaks for itself. Wonderful. Truly a legend.

with that said, here is an incredible live version of “Because the night” from 1978 of Bruce Springsteen (who co-wrote the song) & the E Street Band.
