Cher and Cora’s Ultimate Playlist

12 Dec
thelma2

The most-listened to tracks of two best friends living on opposite coasts.

When I first met my best friend Cora, we were talking about music. Since then, we’ve made so many memories going to shows, festivals in different countries and states, and making soundtracks for road trips we’ve taken. So when Spotify notified me that they made a playlist of our top listened to songs of 2016, I had to share. This 6+ hour long playlist features songs I’ve listened to a million times, she listened to a million times, and we listened to together on repeat. The playlist is reeling with musical memories for me-from the time we played The Smiths’ “That Joke Isn’t Funny Anymore” on repeat while driving around L.A.,  to the time Cora discovered Dilly Dally after we saw them at The Great Escape in Brighton (I already loved them). Check out the varied playlist below, featuring some of our favorite artists including Otis Reading, Kurt Vile, Holy Sons, Childish Gambino, Tears for Fears and so many more. Seriously, so many…it is 6+ hours of music.

The Spotify Playlist that changed your life.

7 Dec
lush-vibes

What is the Spotify Playlist that changed your life? We all have one…and if you don’t yet you should really start exploring.

What is the Spotify playlist that changed your life? Mine is Lush Vibes. I’ll never forget the first time I heard it. I was casually strolling in and out of my housemate’s room catching up on her day and every time I came in a different song was playing, yet all had a different chill ass groove that somehow tied them all perfectly together like an episode of High Maintenance [start binging now].

“Who is this? What are you listening to?” I finally asked. Next, the moment my life changed, “That’s a playlist on Spotify called Lush Vibes.” she laughed hysterically. “I found it after I spent way too much on a Face Mask at Lush. The sales ladies were just so nice and informative.” she continued. My head was already reeling. I excused myself and went into my room to  immediately download and save the playlist forever on my phone.

I searched, there it was with “a weird picture of a guy in a jungle” as the cover art…or at least that’s how the tiny pic looked on my housemate’s phone. Who is that handsome man standing amongst the-dare I say- lush, beautiful greenery? Did he make this playlist? If so, can I be his best friend? Confidant? Assistant? The gorgeous gent is Iman Omari, an artist featured on the playlist with some of my favorite songs on the playlist including his single, “That Girl”. After getting the playlist on lock I lay in my bed and stare at the stars I was seeing with each new song and artist I discovered.

Since then, I’ve listened to Lush Vibes when I’m really happy, want to chill, am depressed, want to dance, can’t sleep, am driving, flying, going on adventures, and contemplating life. Described by Spotify as “Lush, hazy and chill instrumental hip hop by today’s future-minded beat crafters”. However you want to describe it, this playlist is the coverall playlist that no matter where I am in my life it uplifts my mood, and most importantly never gets old.

morning jam: NZCA Lines “Persephone Dreams”

14 Oct

NZCA Lines

It was like Christmas came early when NZCA Lines released their new track “Persephone Dreams”. As I was counting the hours here waiting for new music (listen to the track and you will understand later-I promise), the now trio released six minutes and twelve magnificent seconds of pure bliss. “Persephone Dreams” is an epic, musical journey that will make your heart explode. Between the vocals, the harmonies, the keys, the drums, the steel drum surprise (!!!!), the lyrics, this song is an absolute dream made for listening on repeat. No seriously, I put this song on repeat on Spotify for literally 8 hours and it still gets better with age. The single is the first taste of the upcoming album Infinite Summer due out of Memphis Industries. Listen to the track below now:

Love the song as much as I do? Memorize the lyrics below before their upcoming show at Oslo Hackney in London on December 14th! This will be the first show leading up to NZCA Line’s upcoming album Infinite Summer due out on Memphis Industries. They will be supporting Dutch Uncles and Outfit. For tickets and other information follow the event on Songkick here!

NZCA Lines “Persephone Dreams” Lyrics:
If only the wind slowed down
I’d feel you were here somehow
It carries me back, straight into you
If only silently
You were carried on the air I breathe
Hurry me back

Are you ready now
Do you really want the night to end
Only when I’ve been counting the hours here waiting for you
Are you ready now
Do you really want it all to change
Only when I’ve been counting the hours here waiting for you
My love

Over the ground like fire
Do we generate this light
That only surrounds, closer to you
We separate like halves
I see what you are dreaming of
Hurry me back
And tell me you’ll wait til this can’t be broken
And tell me you’ll wait til the time is chosen

Make sure you follow NZCA Lines on Soundcloud, Facebook, and Twitter!

morning jam xx: NZCA LINES “New Atmosphere”

4 Nov

NZCA:LINES

Today, a somewhat unsuspecting day, I opened up Spotify to add more jams to my nostalgia playlist when it happened. I clicked my notification, was it a new follower? New album? No. It was a new single from one of my favorite musicians and people of all time, NZCA LINES. I’ve been wondering when we would be treated with new music from him all year and today is that blessed day. His new single “New Atmosphere” is more beautiful than you could have ever hoped or dreamed. Listen below:

“New Atmosphere” is releasing on Moshi Moshi Singles club on December 8th on limited edition 7″ vinyl and download! You can pre-order it now here. I will continue to keep you posted on all new music from NZCA LINES and word of his new album as soon as I hear it.
