VIDEO: 2013 Life is Beautiful Festival MUSIC Recap

22 Jun

Oh man, just 24 hours from the 2014 Life is Beautiful lineup! I cannot wait to share this year’s lineup with everyone. Each minute we get closer to releasing it the more excited I get. I hope my enthusiasm and love for the talent assembled for year two of the festival is shared by you as well after tomorrow.  I hope that as you watch this video below which recaps the music portion of Life is Beautiful 2013, you get pumped to create a whole new set of beautiful memories that will last a lifetime.

“A music festival is a gathering of a lot of strangers but I must say that music by the end of the night it always makes me feel like I know everybody that I shared that experience with and there’s nothing else in the world that can do that like music.” – Dan Reynolds, Imagine Dragons at Life is Beautiful Festival

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!

23 Apr

Hooray for new music Tuesday this week!  The anticipated album Bankrupt! from French rockers Phoenix finally dropped as did Frank Turner’s Tape Deck Heart, The Neighbourhood’s I Love You and if you head over to iTunes you can snag an exclusive of Youngblood Hawke’s Wake Up.  There are also a ton more great releases today but these four are what’s been on repeat for me.

That Festival in Delaware, yeah Firefly has done it again with another solid lineup. From top to bottom fans should be jacked up about this one. Lots and lots of great up and coming bands. This is the week after Bonnaroo (which drops its lineup today too) so expect to see many similar artists.

My New Music: Youngblood Hawke

12 Sep

Big shout out to my buddy David for turning me on to this band a couple weeks ago.  I seriously can’t wait for the rest of the world to discover this group.  Expecting some big things after just a four-track EP.

Two words: Youngblood Hawke

Who? A five-piece from LA

What?  The next great band you probably haven’t heard of but will be hearing a lot about in the future

Why you should listen? Because these five kids are incredibly talented and bring a fun, happy go lucky sound to life.

A reason you’ll be excited?  Listen to their lyrics and chances are you’ll find an instant connection and that it could be on parallel with your life.

Why I’m excited: I listen to A LOT of music but it’s rare for me to get uber excited about a band instantly and that’s the way it was with Youngblood Hawke.  “We Come Running” was the first track I listened to and I immediately listened to the other three tracks on the EP and was hooked.  From their sound, lyrics, harmonies, it all just was like a perfect storm and I just hope others get to discover this band too.

If you like: Grouplove, Foster The People, fun. and then meld them all together.

Final thoughts: Their EP dropped mid-August and you better hop on the train now because it’s going to be picking up steam fast.  It will all make sense when you listen to the EP.  Click HERE for the Spotify link to the EP.
