Countdown to Life is Beautiful: 11 Days – Walk The Moon

13 Sep

This one is special to me and I’ll champion Walk The Moon for as long as I can because they are a great group of guys and their music is fantastic. I only wish for good things to happen to good people. I was a fan of Walk The Moon the first time I ever heard “Anna Sun” and wrote about them on the blog back in May of 2011. I first saw them on the Sonic Bids Stage at Bonnaroo later that year and was enamored with their live show. At the time I was writing concert reviews for Vegas Seven and was asked to start interviewing bands for some upcoming columns. The first ask was to Walk The Moon. I ended up meeting the guys in the Lollapalooza media village where we proceeded to sit Indian style in a circle underneath a tree so I could conduct the interview. It was so bizarre yet worked beautifully. Since those days the guys have exploded and are riding an all time high to stardom and I couldn’t be more excited. They put out as much energy as any band on stage and what they receive from the crowd is tenfold. It’s a sight to witness and on Sunday of Life is Beautiful, I cannot wait to see thousands of screaming fans singing and dancing. Get your face paint ready, pull out your dancing shoes and let’s go!

Now Playing: Walk The Moon – “Anna Sun (Trouble Productions Remix)”

17 May

If you follow my blog, you know I’m a big supporter of Walk The Moon and seriously can’t wait to see them absolutely take off this year when their album on RCA drops (June 19). Well before that, here’s a fun remix of their hit, “Anna Sun” by Trouble Productions (Albert Hammond Jr. of the Strokes and producer Gus Oberg). Big thanks to RollingStone.com for the item.

Listen to the remix HERE.

News: Walk The Moon to release Anna Sun EP next week

2 Feb

In anticipation of their upcoming release on RCA Records, I got very excited when I found out Walk The Moon will be releasing a three song Anna Sun EP next Tuesday, February 7.  The EP will feature the hit song, “Anna Sun,” off their independently released i want i want, “Next in Line” and Tightrope” which quite frankly I believe is their best song (and it’s hard not to love “Anna Sun”).

The quartet are mighty talented, bring a ton of energy to the stage every night and there’s a reason they were tabbed as one of MTVs Artists to Watch in 2012.  I’ve been fortunate to have seen the guys perform at Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and in Las Vegas as well as interview them and all I can say is you are sorely missing out if you are not listening to Walk The Moon.

Another thing to look forward to besides their upcoming tours with Young The Giant and some dates with the Kaiser Chiefs, is their first-ever live performance on late night television April 5 on Late Night wth Jimmy Fallon. Oh man I can’t wait to see if ?uestlove is going to rock the face paint with the fellas.

Countdown to Bonnaroo: 30 Days – Artist of the Day: Walk the Moon

10 May

I’m really excited to check out the Ohio based band, Walk the Moon next month.  I was recently introduced to them and have instantly become a fan.  Check out the video below for their song “Anna Sun” off their debut release i want i want.

Playlist: May Music

5 May

The inspiration for this month’s playlist has to do 100% with the idea of hopping in the car, cranking up the volume and listening to these tracks with the windows down and wind blowing in your face.  There is some new music scattered in throughout the playlist and chances are good I’ve mentioned all the artists on the blog in some regard.

Hope you like May Music!

Cheers!
