DoYouHearTheMusic.com – Febrary 2015 Playlist

10 Feb

New music Tuesday so why not put together a little playlist to help get you through your day and the month of February. I know I just put together my January 2015 playlist a couple weeks ago so between the two you should be good to go with some solid tunes for the full work day. This month brings new music from Alabama Shakes, Marina and The Diamonds, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Purity Ring; second and third singles from James Bay, Hozier and George Ezra; and hopefully I can introduce you to some new tunes from Twerps, Vetiver, Francisco The Man and more. Peace + Love + Music.

Revisited in Photos: Marina and the Diamonds – 4 8 11 – Las Vegas

11 Apr

Marina and the Diamonds were the latest to take their act to Book & Stage in Las Vegas. Here are some images I snapped from the show on April 8. Not exactly the best photos I’ve ever taken but it was a little tough to capture Marina as she was a ball of energy jumping around nonstop. Besides having what seemed to be an unlimited tank of energy, she has an incredible voice and is a heck of a performer. If you have the chance to see her live, don’t miss it.

 

OMG Coachella 2011 Line-up

18 Jan

Ok so now the planning can officially begin getting underway as the 2011 Coachella line-up has been announced. I am so stoked about this line-up and definitely finding my way to Indio this spring.

At first glance, Day One is top priority.  As much as a fan I am of Kings of Leon, The Black Keys, Lauren Hill, Cut Copy, Brandon Flowers and all the other top billing acts, I’m more jacked about Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears, Here We Go Magic, Klaxons, !!!, The Drums, Afrojack,  Ozomatli, The Morning Benders and Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti to name a few.

Day Two is going to be a dance party bonanza with Steve Angello, Empire of the Sun, Paul van Dyk, Fedde Le Grand, Laidback Luke, Joachim Garraud, Chuckie and more plus, Raphael Saadiq, Two Door Cinema Club, Foals, the Kills, Mariachi El Bronx plus Arcade Fire, Mumford & Sons and so much more!

Day Three has a ton more great artists but I am not as high on it as Days 1 & 2.  The return of the Strokes, The National, Duran Duran, Duck Sauce, Eliza Doolittle, Tinie Tempah, and Ben Harper’s Fistful of Mercy should all be insane performances.

All I can say is WOW and while some may start chiming in saying this isn’t the best Coachella line-up in the 12 years I would argue that when we recap the festival later this spring it will go down in the record books as featuring one of the finest collections of music we have ever seen over the course of three days.
