Daughter sings a mash-up of Bon Iver's Perth + Hot Chip’s Ready for the Floor and it makes my eardrums melt. 

Love, Ace.

Breaking up? Recommended: Best CoastBaby I’m Crying

My eyes aren’t what you say they are
My hands they don’t reach that far
My heart is open like a door
But I don’t trust you like before

I don’t know who I am this year
My feelings are nothing but fear
My head, my heart, open wide
You came and took me by surprise

Maybe one day you’ll be the one
Maybe one day I will see the setting sun
Maybe one day you’ll be the one
But until then
Baby I’m crying
Baby I’m crying

Love, Ace.

And if I live the life I’m given, I won’t be scared to die,

Okay now hitting another obsession I mentioned earlier: Smallpools.

Recommended: Over and Over

It was a company event
With a margarita tent
I said ‘How’s your week?’
She said ‘Man, I’m spent,
And I could use a crazy night,
And I would love to see Chennai,
We could commandeer a little plane and fly,
Or we could just skip stones in the shade,’

I wanna call you mine
And never let you down
I wanna feel it’s right over and over
I wanna get inside
And take it up and down
I wanna live this night over and over.

They only have four songs right now but they have a habit of covering a gem from the Police live. They just finished up a tour with WALK THE MOON and now they’re hitting the road with Twenty One Pilots so once again, calling my East Coast music soul-mates, here are their tour dates:

  • 11/25 - 9:30 Club - Washington, D.C.
  • 11/29 - House of Blues - Chicago, IL
  • 11/30 - Fillmore - Detroit, MI
  • 12/1 - Stage AE - Pittsburgh, PA

Get down to party town, you won’t be sorry.

So, according to Pigeons and Planes, CHVRCHES is having an MC Contest where they want people to rap over the instrumental of their song Lies. 
I have zero rap talent. Unless you hit me with T-pain’s Show U How, then I got .01% rap talent. But if YOU do, then you should probably do this because CHVRCHES rocks my world and I want to hear what you rap genii come up with. 
Spread the love and let me know if you enter!

My infatuation with Twenty One Pilots won’t quit.

The b+w's are from SXSW 2012, and the other two are from their show at the Bluebird theatre in Denver this month. 

New recommendation? Guns for Hands - most emo party jam ever. Seriously though, these guys put on a show you wouldn’t believe. They’re touring with Smallpools (another obsession) and if you’re on the East Coast I’m begging you to hit one of their shows in this Seattle girl’s place!

#NowPlaying “Holding Onto You,” @TwentyOnePilots.

"You think twice about your life
It probably happens at night, right?
Fight it, take the pain, ignite it
Tie a noose around your mind
Loose enough to breath fine and tie it
To a tree tell it,
“You belong to me, this ain’t a noose
This is a leash and I have news for you
You must obey me!”

You are surrounding all my surroundings
Sounding down the mountain range
Of my left-side brain
You are surrounding all my surroundings
Twisting the kaleidoscope
Behind both of my eyes

Entertain my faith

Lean with it, rock with it
When we gonna stop with it?
Lyrics that mean nothing
We were gifted with thought
Is it time to move our feet
To an introspective beat
It ain’t the speakers that bump hard
It’s our hearts that make the beat

And I’ll be holding on to you.”

Full lyrics.

#NowPlaying "Stare Into The Sun," @Graffiti6

Just play it.. seriously.

"The sun is shining down for lovers,
But not for me, it shines for others,
You gave me love babe, gave me love babe, now it’s over.

I’m feelin’ blue ‘cause love is gone,
Guess I lose, but life goes on.

Got a few tears to dry,
Before these blue shade days are gone,
And I can stare into the sun.”

Full lyrics

I know normally I just hand off a song or music video with some lyrics and send you on your way but these guys are different. Frontman Jamie Scott (@JamieScottG6) is so hot it’s almost distracting in this video, but his voice adds so much soul to their indie-rock/electronica vibe. And what really gets me is that in their song “Annie You Save Me,” he actually kind of sounds like a cross between Ben Gibbard (@Gibbstack) of @DCFC and Chris Martin of @Coldplay. Maybe a little Mark Foster (@FosterThePeople) too, come to think of it. Anyway, they released their EP, “Free” yesterday so find them anywhere and everywhere you can because this shit is incredible!

My God you tempt my anxious mind,
It takes me away”
