Heavenly Father by Bon Iver (NEW from Wish I Was Here Soundtrack)

Check out this surprise new Bon Iver track from the soundtrack for Wish I Was Here (a movie I now want to see more than ever!) because it's absolutely gorgeous. I thought Bon Iver was possibly done forever so this gives me hope there could be another new album coming...at least eventually!

Also, Zach Braff has got this whole rad movie soundtrack thing down pat. He's killing it!

Good To Sea by Pinback

My favorite Pinback song always makes me want to go sailing. Good thing I'm sailing to Catalina in a couple weeks! B-)

Jack White @ Fox Theater Pomona - 6/12/14

1 of my best girlfriends (& eventual roommate), Stephy Lou, & I met for the 1st time at The Greek Theatre 6 years ago this September 22nd while seeing The Raconteurs & The Kills play an KICKASS show at The Greek Theatre in LA. Stephy's friends stupidly bailed on the show at the last minute but, luckily, she went anyway & I bought a last minute Section C ticket off Craigslist the (Monday) morning of the show only to then quickly sneak up to a better seat in Section B where I found myself dancing my ass off right next to Stephy Lou! It was fate, the show was fantastic & Jack White is kinda our thing :)

While all of that is sweet & adorable, it also must be said that Jack was absolutely INCREDIBLE at Fox Theater Pomona on June 10th! I'm SO grateful I was able to score 2 last minute tickets to 1 of Jack's 3 SOLD-OUT LA-area shows...and I got the tix just when I'd given up hope which made it all the more exciting. He played White Stripes stuff, Raconteurs stuff & solo stuff. It was all pure perfection. The man is a genius & a MUST-SEE live act.

Teenage Crime by Adrian Lux (Thomas Jack Remix)

This is 1 of my favorite tracks to bump in my headphones while running along the beach. I sometimes even repeat it once or twice because it really pumps me up. You should try it! :)

Heligoland by Massive Attack

Out of excitement for tomorrow morning's ticket presale for Massive Attack at The Greek Theatre in LA on Thursday, October 16th, I'm revisiting their albums & starting with the most recent 2010 release Heligoland which features some rad guest appearances by artists like Tunde Adebimpe of TV on the Radio & Damon Albarn of Blur & Gorillaz...plus many more.

I'm SO excited for Spoon's new album They Want My Soul to be released on August 5th right before I get to see them live for my 5th time ever at Outside Lands in SF only a few short days later! This 1st new single off the album is a tasty little appetizer...

Uptight Downtown by La Roux

This new La Roux song is really starting to grow on me. It's a great workout track!

The temperature is rising...
