PIPES. (and mane, too, right?)
Ryn Weaver, the babe behind “OctaHate”, just released a four track EP, Promises. I read this interview (after listening to the EP) that explained that the explosion of “OctaHate” was due in part by some of her closest pals, Jessie Ware, and front man of Passion Pit, Michael Angelakos. It’s hard to ignore the heavy Passion Pit influence in “Promises.” Funny, eh? “OctaHate” is such a good jam.
This sister duo has a new album coming out..and if you listened to their first one, you would be just as excited as I am for it. I played their first single “Scarlet” on repeat for an embarrassingly long time. Check out this single from their upcoming album and I’m sure you’ll be pleased. a
And here is “Scarlet” for good measure. These girls rock HARD.
Do you think it takes two years for good music to travel around the world? Karise Eden won the Voice Australia in 2012. Why isn’t she over here, over there–ALL OVER doing her thing? She is a mix of Janis, Amy, and maybe even Aretha? She a beautiful creature and I’d like to hear more of her right now.
Wooooo baby this new one is a good new one.
Beyonce and Nicki remix “Flawless.” I feel like we all should have seen this coming. Everyone is buzzing about it because B addresses the “elevator brawl” in the song:
“We escalatin’, up in this bitch like elevators
Of course sometimes shit goes down when there’s a billion dollars on an elevator”
Still a little ambiguous but take a listen for yourself.
P.S. I don’t believe the rumors. c.
Yes to Abel, Kygo, and this remix.
SOJA’s video “I Believe” featuring Michael Franti and Nako just premiered on VH1. There isn’t a lot to it, but humans and Earth. (Listen to the lyrics. Heavy, right?) These humans are good humans and, boy, did I need this. Maybe we all need this.
“Go placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons…” Desiderata, Max Ehrmann
