i am not a hipster.

no, this post is not about me. i recently watched, on netflix, a film called 'i am not a hipster', featuring music by dominic bogart, under the fabricated "band" name Canines. 

the movie is good. really good. it pokes fun at hipster culture which is always a good time, while walking through some legitimately deep and relatable life struggles. oh, and the music is also really good. there's a lot of 'really good' going on here.

dry lands

dead ends

watch the movie, then buy the album. you're welcome. 


Midweek Jams.

usually wednesday means the middle of the work week; however, this week is a short one since most of the corporate world rewards us for living in America with a three-day-July 4th weekend. That sounds like a pretty good reason to celebrate. What better way to celebrate than with a solid playlist?

Ellenberg - cities between us

niva - dirty water

grimes - realiti

kagu - human

milo greene - 1957

from gold - novo amor

tei shi - bassically

vok - before

rhye - open

A$AP Rocky - Everyday feat. Rod Stewart x Miguel x Mark Ronson

book on tapeworm.

do you like incredible vocals?

do you also like harmonies featuring incredible vocals from multiple people?

do you also like well-written compositions with unique instrumentation and beautiful lyrcis?

if you answered 'yes', 'yeah', 'yup', 'yep', 'yah', 'yaaaaaaaas', or 'si', to any of the above questions, then I've got a present for you. If you answered 'no' to any of the above, then you're simply the worst.

check out some songs from the provo, utah-based band, Book on tapeworm below.

npr tiny desktop concert playlist.

There's a reason that going to live performances is so much better than listening to a studio-recorded album. There's something about seeing raw emotion and intensity during an in-person show that you lose when you simply listen to an mp3 or cd or record or whatever. That's one of the reasons I love the npr tiny desktop concert series. check out a few of my current favorites. Disclaimer: most of these are acoustic versions of the originals.

weekend jamz

for whatever reason, this morning has been dragging on and feeling like just another day.

But it's not just another day!

It's a dang Friday. 

Music set your mind right.


wildcat wildcat! - mr. quiche


alt j - breezeblocks

wild cub - thunder clatter


warpaint - keep it healthy


vance joy - riptide

boots of spanish leather.

the brixton messer.

cult, meet my favorite hat: the brixton messer.

the right blend of folk/americana and modern appeal.

Brixton calls it the messer fedora, but I don't think anyone would mistake you for kevin federline, or a brittney spears obsessed tween girl. You can scoop one up here in green or black or beige for $52

saturday jamz.

it's saturday. and I don't know about your neck of the woods but here, right here where i live, it's gorgeous outside. so i put these songs from the NPR Tiny Desk Concerts on my phone and i'm repeating them all day.
