Another mixtape will be on the way soon đŸ˜‰ and will include a lot of tracks from more great new albums this year as well as tracks from artists that are touring and will be doing lots of festivals! March is so ridiculous for shows and already this month I have more than 7 shows to see.

NEON AND HIGH FOOD MONTRÉAL have a THREE DAY festival coming up featuring: FLYING LOTUS!!! GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH *DIES* FLYING LOTUS! BENGA! FAKE BLOOD! JOAKIM! DUCHESS SAYS! AND MORE! Outside of the festival they’re hosting Aeroplane! Neon Indian! Silly Kissers! and more!

So sick.

Calvin Harris, Air, Joanna Newsom, the Clientele and many others are also making they’re way to MontrĂ©al this month! CALVIN HARRIS! I missed him at Coachella and I still regret it.

Anyways, I recently listened to Hot Chip’s new album One Life Stand and have determined that they will never live up to Coming On Strong or even The Warning, which for me (and for Taha ;)), is one of those classic dance albums. There are a few good singles on there like “One Life Stand” and “Keep Quiet”, but other than that it is a very very mainstream sound compared to their former works and not very much stands out. So this led me to go on a The Warning binge so to speak, and I haven’t been able to let go of listening to this album for a few days now.

I decided to share one of my favorite songs of all time “Boy From School” and a cover of it done by Grizzly Bear. I don’t think they did it justice…but “Boy From School” is one of those tracks that are absolutely untouchable, so perfect already. But the Grizzly Bear cover is a completey different side of it, and they did somewhat keep the harmonies that I love so much…so it’s not too bad đŸ˜‰

Hot Chip are playing Coachella this year! They kicked my ass when I saw them in the Sahara in 2008.

Enjoy! and check out those shows!

This week’s worth of videos is dedicated to Grizzly Bear’s amazing single “Two Weeks” off their new release Veckatimest. I think this is one of the best songs of the year and when I need something to lift me up I blast this and sing as if I were an entire orchestra and choir. It’s powerful stuff. They just released their video for this and it is just fantastic. But, I did like another video other than the one they released which I feel, captures the soul and optimism of the song better than the official video. Also, this dedicated to Barcelona’s win against Manchester United today. Great game! The photo, which also captures “Two Weeks” wonderfully, is courtesy of Keiko (a wonderful designer and photographer and model and writer—phewf—and you can go to her page on my links on the left!)
