Now Playing: My Morning Jacket – “Believe (Nobody Knows)”

6 May

Yesterday was a ridiculous New Music Tuesday. We’re talking Mumford & Sons, Tallest Man on Earth, Best Coast, METZ, Mikal Cronin, Django Django, Palma Violets, Hiatus Kaiyote, Ivan & Alyosha but the one release I was most psyched about was by far My Morning Jacket and the release of The Waterfall. So pumped the guys are back with a new album, back on tour and comig to a city near you. If you’ve never been fortunate enough to catch MMJ live, change that this summer. And for you Vegas peeps, they are coming to Brooklyn Bowl for a two night stint, October 9-10!

5 Apr

Top of the morning and here’s a new track for you to be hitting repeat on all day, “Warrior” featuring Mark Foster of Foster The People, rising songstress Kimbra and DJ/producer genius A-Trak.  This collaboration is the latest from Converse’s three artists, one song series.  The video is pretty cool too so don’t just listen, watch. Added bonus, the song is available as a free download by clicking here.

You may recall a Converse collaboration earlier this year “DoYaThing” featuring Gorillaz, James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem and Andre 3000 of Outkast.  Two more previous installations included “All Summer,” featuring Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast, Kid Cudi and Rostam Batmanglij from Vampire Weekend and “I’m A Goner” featuring Matt and Kim, Soulja Boy and Andrew W.K.

Bonnaroo X Schedule Released Today

13 May


Finally the Bonnaroo schedule has been released! Click HERE to take a look. As expected when the schedule came out, there are  many many conflicts and overlaps with artists and set times. Of course for me there are the staple artists that are marked as must sees (Widespread Panic, String Cheese Incident, Buffalo Springfield, Mumford & Sons, Gregg Allman, Robert Plant, G. Love, The Black Keys, Warren Haynes, etc.) and after that, time to figure out the rest. Who knows, my ideal schedule today may end up being completely different when I arrive. All I know is there is a ton of great music and I can’t wait to be surrounded by 90,000 of my new closest friends.
