Big Boi – Lines ft. A$AP Rocky and Phantogram
It’s not often that I post hip hop on Yow Yow! But I love me some Phantogram so…
I think I have found my new favorite music channel and it’s not MTV. In fact it’s not even on television. Noisey is a music channel online that showcases some of my favorite up and coming bands in exclusive interviews and performances. Last night, I watched a short ep. of Phantogram and fell in love – not that I wasn’t in love with them even before this. Other artists featured are: Pusha-T, Porcelain Raft, Seattle’s own Craft Spells, Holy Ghost! and many more.
The end of your productivity starts here. You’re welcome!
Good morning everyone! The increase in posts lately are to compensate for my lacking this weekend. It’s Fall Ball weekend! And also, I’m going to try not to post much over the holidays and get some actual real work done. Enjoy your Thursday!

I’ve got the hair; now I just need the talent and badass attitude to match.
Are you in need of new music? Phantogram will be releasing their newest LP “Nightlife” on 11.11.11, but if you “like” them on Facebook now, you can stream the entire CD. Trust me – you’re definitely going to want to do that. If the songs sound a little familiar, it’s because Phantogram has been performing some of their singles at their recent shows, but all of the songs featured on this album are completely new from their previous album “Eyelid Movies.” I fell in love with “16 Years” and “Don’t Move” at both Quadstock and Bumbershoot this year so I am counting down the days until I will have this album on my desktop. For now, I’ll just stream it on a daily basis as my soundtrack.
Today’s Song of the Day is a new song by Phantogram! “Don’t Move” will be on their new mini LP “Nightlife.” To watch this song live at Bumbershoot this year was incredible!
With just two weeks of school left, Quadstock was the perfect way to end out our spring quarter. This year’s lineup included The Hood Internet, Phantogram, The Thermals, and Del the Funky Homosapien. I am so proud of my two friends Addie and John for planning such an incredible event and even more impressed by the entire staff that began their work day at 9AM that morning to make sure that the event was running smoothly for all of the students throughout the festivities. It was a beautiful event and I’m so glad I got to spend it with a wonderful group of people that I adore.
And for the giggles…
[The Thermals love to draw on the whiteboard of their greenroom. Oh those artists...]
This isn’t the official video or anything, but I saw that someone had used the song for a stop motion. I love stop motions.
One of the reasons I have been lagging on Yow Yow! lately is because I have been listening to a lot of new music. Sure, school gets in the way, but around dinner time I find myself eating my meals to the sounds of mix tapes from new artists. Fun job right?
Everyone loves to hear new stuff because let’s face it, just because you hear a song on the radio for the first time doesn’t mean that it is new. In reality, the song has been playing repeatedly on that station for the past few weeks (you just have been missing it ) and get this – that song was probably released on an independent radio station four months ago. Did I just burst a bubble?
Anyways, if you’re interested in hearing some new stuff check out Thesixtyone – a site that allows new artists to post up their music for other listeners to decide if they are worth listening to. It’s not as cutthroat as I am making it out to be. The first band I listened to was The Whispertown 2000 (pictured above,) but I’ve managed to get a mixture including The Weepies, Phantogram and a Bjork Ratatat remix.
