Lineup #144

In 2017, Archives, June 2017 by eseids0 Comments

Back in the US of A. After a whirlwind trip to Europe, I’ve made it back home. I’m still catching up on all the new music that was released while I was gone, but here’s what I do know: SZA’s debut album Ctrl and Lorde’s sophomore album Melodrama are both stunning in their own ways and you should go listen …

Lineup #143

Summer of Love. I’m writing this post from one of my favorite places in the world – Berlin. I have to keep pinching myself that I got to go to Primavera in Barcelona, and then hop on a plane to spend over a week pretending to be a Berliner (and then off to Norway to see my parents – hi …

Lineup #142

Primavera Sounds. I spent this past Thursday, Friday and Saturday at Primavera Sound in Barcelona. Long story short, it’s by far one of the greatest musical festivals in the world. I’m still in Barca (and off to Berlin tomorrow!), so I’m going to keep this short. However, once I’m stateside my girl RT and I will be doing a full …

Lineup #141

It’s beginning to feel a lot like… Ah, Memorial Day Weekend. The unofficial start of Summer (well, everywhere else but San Francisco where our Summer really begins with Labor Day). But regardless of where you are, I think we can all agree that it’s starting to feel a lot like Summer, especially in Lineup #141. Maybe it’s the fact that Chromeo just …

Lineup #140

Yosemite Feels. Last week I went on a camping trip to one of my favorite places in the world – Yosemite National Park – with some of my favorite people in the world. Needless to say, it was an experience I’m forever grateful for (and I don’t even care how cliché that sounds). My beautiful and talented friend The Healthy …

Lineup #139

In 2017, Archives, May 2017 by eseids0 Comments

Non-stop. Another crazy week, another Lineup filled with music from all corners of the world (including music discovered in a Chipotle in Santa Rosa, I see you RT). My goal is to eventually get back to writing more here and share more about why I’m choosing particular songs for each Lineup, but in the meantime thanks for bearing with my non-stop …

Lineup #138

Keepin’ on. Real talk, I’ve been incredibly busy lately. It’s a low key miracle that I pulled together the time to write this very short blog post let alone create Lineup #138 and record this week’s episode of The Monday Lineup radio show among the seemingly millions of other things going on. And while there were some things worth celebrating …

Lineup #137

In 2017, Archives, May 2017 by eseids0 Comments

Buzzing. Inspiration for Lineup #137 came from all sorts of places – new album releases, songs I can’t get out of my head, videos I recorded from DJ sets, bar soundtracks, the thing that Spotify now does where it just continues playing related music after an album finishes, important musical anniversaries (I see you Aretha) and even Senator Chuck Schumer. …

Lineup #136

DAMN. Still listening to DAMN. on repeat. Still daydreaming about Hans Zimmer’s Coachella set. Loving Woods’ Love is Love and The Man in the High Castle album. Obsessed with the harps in Four Tet’s remix of The xx’s “A Violent Noise”. Very close to memorizing every word to Father John Misty’s Pure Comedy. Welcome to Lineup #136. Until next Monday.

Lineup #135

Desert wake-up. Today I’m waking up in Palm Desert after (without sounding trite) three beautiful days of music at Coachella. I watched inspiring female artists command the main stage, had my yacht rock dreams come true with a guest appearance by Michael McDonald, danced for hours while 3 of my most favorite and respected DJs played an extended set together, …
