I wasn’t quite sure if I wanted to make this the Song of the Day, but as I listen to the song a second time and then a third time, I realized how much it was growing on me. I wanted to keep this simple though so here are just my thoughts on this:
So wait, which song is better – Taylor’s or Mariah’s?
I haven’t made my way to as many events in San Francisco as I would’ve like so I feel like by posting about them, I’m making some sort of a commitment. Will anyone else been there? I haven’t listened to Rogue Wave since I was a teenager and obsessed with that song “Eyes.” Are they still a pretty dream pop sleepy band? This is no Capitol Hill Block Party by any means, but I missed Outside Lands last weekend so…
I know this song has been out for some time now, but it only recently made its way onto my Spotify playlist and I am pretty much obsessed. It’s so catchy and such a great song to listen to when you’re getting pumped up and ready to go out or in my case just going to work. I’m also pretty sad that I haven’t seen Chromeo in a couple years and that they’ve been returning to Seattle a lot lately!
It is with such a heavy heart that we report Chris Walla’s departure from Death Cab For Cutie. Technically, this news was released yesterday morning, but I couldn’t even bring myself to write about this until late today. Death Cab For Cutie was the first band that I consider myself having any attachment to growing up. Having followed them from their first album until their latest and having seen them perform three times it is hard for me to grasp what the band will look like without Chris. I remember on my journey to becoming a music booking extraordinaire, I made my end goal being able to book either Minus the Bear or Death Cab For Cutie.
While most people are huge fans of their front man Ben, I’ve always been a fan of Chris. Chris, at one point, even ventured off to create his first solo album which I remember having on repeat during my teenage years. The band has been together for 17 years until now and while I am sad about this news, I know that this is just normal – that it happens to many bands, but I just didn’t want it to happen to my band.
Chris will perform his last show with the band on September 19th in Victoria B.C. for the Rifflandia Festival. His full statement released to The Stranger can be found at the source below. We’ll miss you Chris. Thanks for everything.
This music video is so weird. I honestly don’t really know why singers and bands even make music videos anymore because I thought the point of having them way back when was so that it would appear on TRL.
Now, I just feel like these music videos premiere and then go to the music video graveyard.
This cover of Arthur’s theme song is such a sweet little throwback to my childhood. I don’t know who Chance the Rapper is, but I do like this cover and the fact that it includes Jessie Ware. Winner.
