Jesse McCartney – Wasted
This little bop showed up in my Spotify Release Radar Friday and I’ve been loving it ever since. Younger me saw Jesse McCartney as totally basic especially when he was on that show “Summerland.” However, I’ll never forget that he defined my high school senior year with “Leavin'” I’m all for this. He’s still got it.

There are certain moments in life where you hear something that you’re never gonna forget. I just recently re-introduced Kevin to music and had played Maggie’s “Give a Little” to him in the car. As much as I love this song, I’ll never forget watching the moment that Pharrell discovered Maggie, essentially leading the world to discover Maggie. It’s somewhat of a lengthy clip, but it’s worth watching. You can see the exact moments where he is absolutely stunned by her in different parts of the song. Not long after this, Maggie released more songs and then did the festival circuit. She was becoming a fan favorite, but this is where she started. I love moments like these.

It pains me a little to even write this post because I do not support The Chainsmokers in any way. What I am still in support of though is music videos. MTV didn’t do a stellar job of bringing back TRL and even then it felt like more interviews than music. There are many artists and bands these days that don’t even bother to make a video. Maybe they’ll reduce it to what some people call a “lyric video.” A quick Google search of the song would tell you that, but okay. Out of curiosity and because I like Camila Mendes, I watched the video she’s featured in for The Chainsmokers – Side Effects. Her dance moves were charming, the song is upbeat and you don’t see the duo at all. Score! She makes kind of awkward dancing actually pretty cool and that’s one of the reasons why I love it.

Maggie Rogers – Give A Little
Is this not the perfect song to say goodbye to our summer? Let’s be honest, it never really started in San Francisco, but it’s fine. We’re fine. In this video, you might spot a cameo by Riverdale princess Camila Mendes! Turns out the two are friends from college.

Is anyone already listening to “Sweetener?” I just pulled it up on Spotify and already I’m feeling like her first few songs are very different from her last albums especially early on in her career. I’m willing to give this a fair shot though! I’d be interested in hearing what everyone’s favorite songs are afterwards.

I love hanging out at Sea-Tac Airport – maybe to an unhealthy extent. If I’m getting dropped off, I go early so that I can have dinner at one of my favorite local spots or shop at the Sub Pop store before heading home. Local vibes are everywhere at the airport and it’s one of the things that I love. Known for being a city with a famous music scene, there is no shortage of love for the community there. The Sub Pop store is easily the best last stop on your way out as you can pick up some great merch – records, tees, etc. You’ll even hear some of Sub Pop’s local artists overhead as you’re walking through the airport.
Now, the record label is taking over the skies! It was just announced today that they’ve got their own branded Boeing 737-800.
“The jet’s wrapping makes it look like a Sub Pop musician’s instrument case, only in much better condition,” Sub Pop co-president and founder Jonathan Poneman said in a statement. “It’s definitely the sickest jet on the tarmac!” Alaska Airlines’ managing director of brand marketing and advertising Natalie Bowman added, “This partnership brings together two independent, local brands that are committed to doing things a little differently.”
