DoYouHearTheMusic.com – Top Tracks of 2013 (well a good amount of them)

2 Dec

Thanksgiving gave me a minute to sit back and have a little fun putting together a Top Tracks of 2013 playlist.  This clearly doesn’t include all of the great music that has filtered our ears this year but it is a collection of music that has been on rotation for me in 2013.   I tried not to duplicate artists (I could have gone on for days with whole albums from the likes of Vampire Weekend, Cayucas, White Denim, Bastille, etc.) so I hope you like this playlist which should keep you going for hours and perfect for some holiday road trips.

 

Cheers!

 

 

New Video: Avicii – “Wake Me Up” ft. Aloe Blacc

30 Jul

If you read my blog you know how much I love this track (let alone a fan of both artists) but now comes the video.  I dig it, cool stuff, story line, etc. but I do have to point out some nifty sponsorship placement in here by Ralph Lauren (they endorse Avicii) and the Denim & Supply line of the brand.  Check out 1:30 mark.

 

Now Playing: Avicii – “Wake Me Up” ft. Aloe Blacc

17 Jun

If you haven’t had a chance to listen to this just yet, do it now! I totally dig this, Avicii gone country (yes those who went to Ultra it wasn’t a joke). Give a listen to “Wake Me Up” which features the soulful Aloe Blacc. This is going to crossover so many different radio formats; I’d so love to see this hit number one on multiple ones.

And if you haven’t spent time listening to Aloe Blacc, sure get over to itunes, Spotify, to get his music and go see one of his shows; you owe it to yourself.  Trust me.

My New Music: Avicii – “Last Dance”

27 Aug

Have you had the chance to listen to Avicii’s new track “Last Dance” yet? Right now it’s only instrumental (and just released on Beatport today) but I have to say, I love it. And just as Spin Magazine points out, I can’t wait for when the vocal version comes out and just who is given the honors. Guess we shall see but until then, enjoy the next six and a half minutes and repeat.

Five For Friday: Lollapalooza Edition No.1

27 Jul

So here we are, one week away from Lollapalooza and the excitement is building.  So many great bands and musicians over three wild and crazy filled days in Chicago!  As Grant Park gets ready to be invaded by 100,000 people, I’m running down a small little guide if you find yourself attending and for those who plan to watch the YouTube stream.

  1. Let’s get it out of the way, headliners.  Night One: pits Black Sabbath vs. The Black Keys – only US date for Black Sabbath, Night Two: Avicii vs. Red Hot Chili Peppers – RHCP dominated Bonnaroo with a fiery set, Night Three: Justice vs. Jack White – what I’m most interested in is how the crowd sways, when Childish Gambino and Kaskade play at the same time.
  2. Some afternoon delights for you.  Bands like First Aid Kit, The Growlers, Michael Kiwanuka, The War On Drugs, Milo Greene, JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound, Kopecky Family Band, Chancellor Warhol, Moon Taxi, GIVERS, Bombay Bicycle Club, Outasight, Hey Rosetta!, Oberhofer and more pull early time slots but I promise will be worth arriving for.  These bands are awesome and this is some new music you should really be checking out.
  3. Time Conflicts.  A tip of the hat to the schedulers for finding the easiest way to pull a crowd a part as there are many times over the three days that will have festivalgoers torn.  For instance, on Saturday at the same time you’ll have to decide between Alabama Shakes, The Temper Trap, The Dunwells, B.o.B and fun.  Good luck!
  4. When the sun goes down, the action heats up.  Late night Lollapalooza brings forth some amazing late night shows and some of the best memories of the weekend.  Tickets are sold out to the advertised shows but make a few friends and you’ll find out where the rocking parties are. (Last year I caught CULTS, The Black Lips, Crystal Castles, Skylar Grey)
  5. Who I’m excited for.  Well I’ve been fortunate enough to see so many of these acts live before that I’m mostly craving the opportunity to see many for the first time like Of Monsters and Men, The Gaslight Anthem, The Dunwells, Miike Snow, M83, The Weeknd, Twin Shadow, Amadou & Mariam, Dum Dum Girls, The Devil Makes Three, First Aid Kit, Milo Greene, DEV, Dry The River and Moon Taxi.  Plus after finally seeing Alabama Shakes live at Bonnaroo, I can’t wait to see them again, simply amazing live.

 

Austin City Limits 2012 Lineup is here!!

22 May

And at first glance what a great one it is.  October 12-14 Zilker Park, Austin, Texas, plan to be there for Austin City Limits.  Neil Young and Crazy Horse, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Black Keys, Jack White, Florence + The Machine, The Avett Brothers, Avicii, Bassnectar,  The Rotts and Jack White headline the final festival of the season.  Add in acts like Esperanza Spalding,  Alabama Shakes, The Lumineers, Michael Kiwanuka, First Aid Kit, Gary Clark Jr, He’s My Brother She’s My Sister, Dry The River, Royal Teeth, Colorfeels and more; WOW!

Lollapalooza 2012 Lineup is here!

11 Apr

It should be one hot, fun weekend in Chicago for Lollapalooza.  Late last night the much-anticipated lineup for Lollapalooza 2012 was released and C3 Presents and Perry Farrell definitely did not disappoint.  The headliners were pretty much shoe-ins with the exception of Black Sabbath and At The Drive-In (talk about reunion acts) two bands I can’t say anyone really expected.  RHCP, The Black Keys, Jack White, Florence + The Machine are all doing their fair share of festival headlining this summer. Add Justice and Avicii to that list and it is going to be a heck of a good time.

I was really excited to see Sigur Ros, Miike Snow, Die Antwoord, Alabama Shakes, The Weeknd, Passion Pit, Franz Ferdinand, Of Monsters And Men, The Temper Trap, Aloe Blacc, Trampled by Turtles, Toro y Moi, The Head & The Heart, The Big Pink, JJ Grey & Mofro, Gary Clark Jr. , The Gaslight Anthem, Dawes, Bloc Party, Passion Pit, Madeon all getting great billing for the festival.

But even more thrilling was seeing some really awesome smaller acts tabbed to play; like First Aid Kit, Bombay Bicycle Club, GIVERS, Michael Kiwanuka, The Growlers, Hey Rossetta!, JEFF The Brotherhood, The Jezabels, Moon Taxi, Chancellor Warhol, The War On Drugs.

Also I have to say I love the logo used on the lineup poster, YEAR OF THE DRAGON.

See you August 3-5 at Grant Park in Chicago.
