***So I have my top lists compiled, I just haven’t been able to fully write it out yet. And since I will be in New York for New Year’s, my top lists will not be out until I get back. Super sorry! I am super excited for y’all to read it still! And within my mixtapes which I DID finish (phewf) are a lot of my favorites of the year and of the decade! Have a great new years and enjoy the mixtapes! Stay tuned for my top lists within two weeks!***

Hope everyone had a good new year’s! To be, it’s usually just like any other day. I don’t like the hype that NYE brings like any other major “let’s get drunk” holiday but I decided to change that this year. So whether you’re like me in the past and took it cool yesterday and chilled out, this mixtape is still for you. Relax. And if you’re like me yesterday (I am writing about myself in the future but I am sure I will be feeling this way) and partied, and are nursing physical pains all over, this mixtape is DEFS for you. Grab some tea/coffee, go for a run/swim, and decompress with some amazing chill out tunes from this year and the past decade!

It’s been a long time (long time), I shouldn’t have left you (left you), without a dope beat to step to. Freaky freaky! A’ight folks, these are reviews I’ve been meaning to do for a LONG freakin’ time. I mean it. Some of them I’ve been wanting to get out since March. Damn my laziness! I’ll be doing a super quick opinion piece of bands that are getting lots of attention like Passion Pit, Miike, Snow, Neon Indian, Bell Orchestre, the Prodigy, and a few others. Not that “mainstream” isn’t cool, well to hipsters it’s probably not ’cause it’s SO last year Vampire Weekend HYUK HYUK!, but I wanna cover artists that are less mainstream in the blogosphere like Zee Avi, Ebrahim, Flunk, Trickform, and a few others so that they get a bit more exposure…that’s what we’re all here for, right!?! But let’s hope it’s not too much at once so that we can avoid a Wavves disaster. More after the jump!

atm-zee avi

You know when you look at an artist and get some weird preconception of how they’d sound? And most of the time, it’s not that far off? Well a lil’ lady by the name of Zee Avi popped up in my inbox the other day and after watching her “Bitter Heart” video, which you can watch below, I was completely blown away and I immediately got the album. I have yet to listen to it as I’m catching up on some old new stuff but a review will come in a few weeks, hopefully. She goes by the name of Koko Kaina and she’s from Malaysia. She’s 23 but she is such an old soul. I fell in love with her smile and her voice. She sounds like Regina Spektor, Jenn Grant, a bit of Feist, and the Hawaiian that is Jack Johnson all rolled into one! How great! Her three minute rendition is filled with insouciant folk and heartfelt lyricism and vocal perfection. The last 20 seconds of this song makes my heart split into a million butterflies. Watch the video and see what I mean!

Her album drops May 19th, I’m defs going to shell out the dollars for this one. Buy the album and watch Koko talk about her influences and the process of making her first self titled debut here. She’ll also be playing at Bonnaroo coming up!
