NEW MUSIC: THE WAR ON DRUGS – “LIVNG PROOF”

19 Jul

Obsessed is the only word I can use to describe my love for “Living Proof,” the new track by The War On Drugs. Its new album  I Don’t Live Here Anymore, is out October 29.

The music video, directed by filmmaker Emmett Malloy was shot on 16mm film at the Panoramic studio in Stinson Beach, California. More words from Pitchfork can be found here. However for me personally to see Emmett Malloy as the director of this video makes it just a masterpiece in my eyes. I was first turned on to the Malloy Brothers from Jack Johnson’s Thicker Than Water documentary back in 2000 and in the last 21 years, Emmett Malloy has established quite the directing catalog.

Now back to TWOD and excited to hear new music, to know the album is coming and for what a yea 2022 is lining up to be; Living Proof!

He’s written a grip of songs you already know including #1’s for Florida Georgia Line’s “I Love My Country,” Morgan Wallen’s “More Than My Hometown” and Chris Lane’s “Big, Big Plans” as well as Diplo/Wallen “Heartless” and Sam Hunt’s “Breaking Up Was Easy In the 90s” in addition to songs for LOCASH, Jake Owen, Mason Ramsey, Gryffin and more.

Latest track, Cheers, came out just before the end of the year and will be quickly running itself up the charts. So…”Grab A Bottle, Crack A Can, Raise Your Hands, Here’s To Beer, Cheers”

NOW PLAYING: Ida Mae – “Deep River” ft. Marcus King

4 Dec

Good Friday! A few weeks ago this gem of a track dropped from Ida Mae and featuring Marcus King! Definitely worth your ears today and so is getting lost in their Spotify profile to get familiar with this due from across the pond that now resides in Nashville. Pair them with Marcus King and well, give a listen for yourself and you’ll understand! Enjoy!

NOW PLAYING: Holly Humberstone – “Falling Asleep At The Wheel”

3 Dec

If you haven’t heard this song yet, click play and repeat. Get familiar with the next big British songstress, Holly Humberstone. Her latest single is “Vanilla” and you can check that out, here. Here’s hoping for a 2021 where we get to see her on stage, in person 😄

NOW PLAYING: MELVV – Nectarines ft. Royal & The Serpent

2 Dec

To be honest 2020 has been the year I listened least to my favorite thing, music. And that was validated by the Spotify end of the year stats. With a halt since my last show on February 28 I was struggling to get back into anything but the Grateful Dead. So for 8 months that’s about all I remember listening to outside of some country music. But then a burst of energy came and poof! I was ready to dive in and have been on a crusade to discover some new tunes. Here’s one of them, and already one of my favorites from 2020, MELVV – Nectarines ft. Royal & The Serpent . Stay strong, stay healthy and be safe. We’re going to be okay! Believe it!

Music Video: “This Life” by Vampire Weekend

20 May

Okay let’s call it what it is, Father of the Bride, one of the best albums of 2019! Vampire Weekend went ahead and created a masterpiece. First release in six years, re-upped with Ariel Reichstad to produce the record, some slick guest appearances, etc. but what excites me more than anything so far, the music video for “This Life” which was directed by Emmett Malloy!  Also the director for “Harmony Hall!”  Selfishly I’ve loved all the Malloy Brother films (Thicker Than Water and A Brokedown Melody, specifically) and they’ve directed some videos of some legendary songs so not surprising I love this video below. Give a watch and see how they also celebrated Passover in Palm Springs.

Peace + Love + Music
