Five For Friday: Slightly Stoopid on Daytrotter, Dispatch, Rolling Stones, New Music and RIP Chris Lighty

31 Aug

Labor Day Weekend has arrived and for me it is lining up to be a music filled one and without having to leave Las Vegas!  But since it’s Friday, time for five nuggets of music news that grabbed my attention.  Enjoy the holiday weekend and be safe.

  1. Head over to Daytrotter.com, one of today’s download sessions is none other than Slightly Stoopid!  Super excited about this one and to see them with 311 on Saturday night.
  2. If you haven’t already, get your hands on Circles Around the Sun, the first studio album from Dispatch in over a decade.
  3. I officially have a date with music history.  When I’m not sure and tickets I’ll have to get somehow as the Rolling Stones have announced they’ll play two shows before the end of 2012 at Brooklyn’s Barclay Center (where the Brooklyn Nets will play).  Check out the item from Rolling Stone HERE.
  4. September is a ridiculous month for new albums and next week brings fresh music from Two Door Cinema Club (Beacon), Two Gallants (The Bloom And The Blight), Imagine Dragons (Night Visions), Elbow (Dead In The Boot), Matchbox Twenty (North), The Fresh & Onlys (Long Slow Dance), The Vaccines (The Vaccines Come of Age) and Animal Collective (Centipede Hz) as well as a heap of others.
  5. RIP Chris Lighty

Can’t believe it’s already the end of summer?  Neither can I but the good news is it doesn’t really have to end.  So since I put up Summer Playlist Vol.I back in June, here are a bunch more songs and bands that have been powering me through the summer.  Once again this is available via my Spotify profile so unfortunately some songs and bands have been left off (blame them, not me).  Hope you enjoy and find some good tunes to really make this an endless summer!

Five For Friday: Passion Pit, The Gaslight Anthem, Slightly Stoopid, Firefly, Guest Blogging

20 Jul

Check it out.  I’m trying something new at DoYouHearTheMusic.com with a Five For Friday post.  The Triple F is five nuggets of musical goodness to get you through the weekend.  In other words, the soundtrack to your weekend begins right here!

  1. Passion Pit – yes some “mental health” issues of Michael Angelakos have forced the band to cancel some July dates but next week their new album Gossamer drops and boy oh boy should you be excited.  If you haven’t yet given a listen, hop on over to NPR to stream the album.
  2. The Gaslight Anthem – the Jersey Boys are back with another rocking album, Handwritten, which will also be released next Tuesday. Their fourth album may very well prove to be their best as the fellas once again bring that Springsteenesque rock and roll but with a more refined conviction.  This album can also be streamed via NPR, HERE.
  3. Slightly Stoopid – Miles and Kyle are back with “Top of the World,” the title track off their seventh studio album which drops August 14, 2012.  Give a listen HERE.
  4. Firefly Music Festival in Delaware began today and you better believe if I still lived on the east coast, I would be there right now.  Fantastic line-up which includes headliners The Killers and The Black Keys as well as some of my favorites, Michael Franti, Allen Stone, Lupe Fiasco, GROUPLOVE, Walk The Moon, CULTS, The Head and The Heart.
  5. Earlier this week I had the opportunity to guest blog for my friend Dayna Roselli.  Check out the post HERE.

New Music (well sort of): The Dirty Heads

28 Aug

This is like new old music since their debut album came on in 2008 but The Dirty Heads are a group everyone should be listening to.  Any Point In A Storm is a great disc to listen to from beginning to end, beaming of roots, rock, reggae, hip-hop and ska.  Earlier this summer the music video for “Lay Me Down” ft. Rome from Sublime with Rome was released and is the perfect song to ride out the rest of summer and chill to. 

Perhaps the most exciting news on The Dirty Heads may be that O.A.R. tapped them as one of the opening acts on their 2010 fall tour.  Click here for their upcoming tour dates.

If you’re a fan of O.A.R., Pepper, Slightly Stoopid, Jack Johnson, Sublime, 311, Fishbone, The Expendables and G. Love there’s nothing else to say except grab the CD and crank up the speakers.

Revisited: My Mile High Music Festival – Day 1

17 Aug

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Well back from Denver and I already miss that place.  What an incredible city that really has everything to offer.  Every time I visit I find more reasons to love the city.  To say Mile High Music Festival was a success is an understatement, it was just about as good as it gets.  Spread over 24 fields, it was definitely music euphoria with three stages, two tents and a “beach” to bounce back and forth to.  AEG did a really great job laying out the festival and making everything easily accessible and a fun time for all.  Enough small talk, here are some highlights of Day 1.

  • While getting settled for Donavon Frankenreiter as the first act of the day, had the chance to hear Bobby Long’s set and this might have been my surprise of MHMF.  He’s a British singer-songwriter and has a great voice and rocked the stage as if he was the headliner at MHMF.  I’ll be checking out his music this week and I suggest you do the same as he just signed with ATO Records (Dave Matthews) so expect big things from this fella
  • Donavon Frankenreiter was the perfect act to get the afternoon set in motion.  A great crowd convened to the main stage and we were treated to a few surprises; John Oates of Hall & Oates sat in on the entire set, Donavon did a very chill cover of Tom Petty’s “American Girl” and he also performed his new single “Glow” which we wrote about on August 4
  • ALO crushed MHMF with their upbeat and lively performance.  Opening with one of my favorites, “Maria,” the crowd kept growing and growing as the boys jammed nonstop to songs old and new including “Man of the World” the title track off their latest release
  • Nas & Damian “Jr Gong” Marley was one of the most entertaining acts of the day.  In what began as a high energy emcee/DJ hip-hop get down, turned into a Nas greatest hits concert with the rapper performing everything from “Street Dreams” to “If I Ruled the World” and then melding into reggae-rap with the duo performing “As We Enter” and a heap of other tracks before giving way to Marley performing “Welcome To Jamrock” and singing a bunch of his father’s legendary music
  • Rusted Root jammed on well past their scheduled time with “Ecstasy” reverberating throughout the festival grounds
  • Cypress Hill was getting wild and definitely running the gamut on their hits
  • Keane came on late and was disappointing enough that I only stayed for two songs.  The only good thing about Keane coming on late was the opportunity to sing-along to the Steve Miller Band
  • Slightly Stoopid the act I was most looking forward to seeing at MHMF put on a fun set that included “Wicked Rebel” and “Collie Man” and the boys were joined by B-Real of Cypress Hill for their encore
  • Sadly missed Phoenix (same time as Slightly Stoopid) but heard they killed it
  • Caught the end of Derek Trucks & Susan Tedeschi on the way to Jack Johnson – it’s a shame they didn’t have a great crowd and I really can’t talk since I didn’t make the extra effort to hear them either
  • Jack Johnson definitely brought the masses and put on a really fun show but it seemed too chill and not enough energy coming from him.  Some highlights of his set did include Jack brining up Doanvon Franenreiter to perform “Breakdown” and “Mud Football” – which had the two embrace with a big hug at first (not sure the last time they shared the stage together since having a musical “falling-out”) and performing ALO’s “Girl I Wanna Lay You Down” with Zach Gill

More notes from Day 1: Beta Beach was bumping great house music all day and provided a good place to cool off in the water playground; in Coors Country and Budweiser was the beer sponsor?; Whole Foods was easily the best vendor at MHMF with cheap (yes, really) food and drinks and an amazing deal on SIGG water bottles and Honest Tea refills for $1; Justin’s Almond Butter and Hazelnut Spread are amazing; TicketHorse is the future of purchasing concert tickets.
