Countdown to Life is Beautiful: Broken Bells

25 Sep

The home stretch towards the second Life is Beautiful festival in Downtown Las Vegas, October 24-26. In anticipation, at DoYouHearTheMusic.com I’ll be running down an artist or two on the lineup! If you haven’t gotten your tickets, do so at www.lifeisbeautiful.com and if you have, awesome and I can’t wait to see you!

So pumped to have Broken Bells play their first Vegas show at Life is Beautiful.  Sure James Mercer (The Shins) and Brian Burton aka Danger Mouse (Gnarles Barkley) have performed in Vegas before but to finally have them performing together in Vegas will be awesome.  Plus having seen them a couple times this year, I know you are in for a treat when they hit the stage. Catch them on Sunday, October 26!

Just dropped this evening, the 2014 Coachella lineup. Take a look and maybe I’ll see you out in Indio this April.  Pretty strong from top to bottom and boy oh boy are there some gems in the tiny font.

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!

 

 

Why No Electronic Music In Rolling Stone’s Top 50 Singles Of 2010?

14 Dec

For as much as Rolling Stone has given electronic/electro music credit this year, I’m pretty disappointed that their Top 50 Singles of 2010 didn’t include any of the below:

Swedish House Mafia – “One” – arguably the song of the summer and anyone who’s been to a pool party or a nightclub has heard this.  The song took off like a wild fire and didn’t get put out.

Afrojack – “Take Over Control” ft. Eva Simons – a late bloomer but still one of the hottest dance tracks of the year.  Play this song for anyone and I’d be shocked if they don’t start dancing.

Deadmau5 – “Sofi Needs A Ladder” – for as much as Rolling Stone has a crush on Deadmau5 and for this song not to be included is a shame.

David Guetta – any song off of One Love since it came out in the second half of 2009 and got MAJOR play in 2010

Steve Angello – “KNAS” – another club banger in the summer of 2010

Edward Maya – “Stereo Love” – from late 2009 and undoubtedly blew up in 2010

Steve Aoki – “I’m In The House” ft. will.i.am – for as much electro as the music industry has gone in 2010 and how big the Black Eyed Peas are, this would be borderline consideration at least.

Those are just a handful of songs that deserve their due but we could go on forever with this and artists who are not being recognized (Yolanda Be Cool & DCup, Roger Sanchez, Alex Gaudino, etc.) for their influence on pop culture. Just because they may not have a song full of lyrics or one incredible line that makes you laugh shouldn’t take away from the sheer talent and popularity.  I know not everyone is into electronic music and that’s fine but don’t just dance (no pun intended) with the music throughout the year and then throw it to the curb when it’s time to hand out awards and accolades.
