Lineup #101

thunder / fog / synth / sun After a few weeks of long posts, I’m keeping this one short and sweet. Lineup #101 is a collection of tracks I’ve been digging on for the past few weeks, very loosely inspired by New England thunderstorms, the San Francisco Summer fog and the synthesizer.

Lineup #99

100 minus 1. Okay, so Frank Ocean still hasn’t released his follow up to 2012’s Channel Orange despite making us think that this past week could actually be the week. However, in my music world, three other lovely things happened in the past 7 days that I wrote about in this little feature. This week hope that Lineup #99 brings you a little bit of joy …

Okay, so Frank Ocean still hasn’t released his follow up to 2012’s Channel Orange despite making us think that this past week could actually be the week. However, in my music world, three other lovely things happened in the past 7 days that are worth noting despite Frank pulling at my heartstrings again. Adele sings her heart out at Oracle Arena // 8.2.16 Like many others, …

Despacio

In 2016, Archives, Features, July 2016 by eseids2 Comments

It was Despacio, a 50,000-watt sound system developed by James Murphy (of LCD Soundsystem), …

Lineup #96

A little light. Lineup #96 is packed with feel-good, groovy tunes and disco jams to help the sun shine a little brighter this week. And the best part is that it just sort of happened that way, which, despite things feeling more than a little crazy in this world we live in, feels like really a good reminder to take a …
