Macy's 1st single off her upcoming album The Way (out 10/7/14) is a hot & gritty track that's definitely peaked my interest in checking out the rest of the album come October!

1998 by Chet Faker

We used to be friends
We used to be in a circle
I don't understand
What have I become to you?
Take my good word
Turn it backwards
Turn it back on me...

Marvin Gaye's Sunny Remixed by Mercury (Edit II)

My favorite newlyweds, Charlene & Dan, did 1 of the coolest things ever for the attendees of their recent wedding celebration. They created a 9 HOUR mix CD with just a few of their favorite tracks ;-) I'm not even an hour into it & I'm already obsessed. I'm certainly going to get a LOT of blog material from it!!

THANK YOU, Char Char & Danimal, & CONGRATULATIONS again, lovebirds!

Here's just 1 example of the awesomeness:

Inside Out by SPOON = My FAVORITE New Spoon Track (Official Video)

Spoon just dropped ANOTHER track off their new album They Want My Soul (set to be released on August 5th) & it's officially my favorite new Spoon song! I can't wait to hear it live when I see Spoon for my 5th time at Outside Lands Music Festival in SF next month!! They're definitely 1 of the best live acts of our generation. I can never get enough!

The Bots are a Los Angeles-based sibling duo consisting of Mikaiah & Anaiah Lei &, despite only being 21 & 18 years old respectively, they're already kinda blowin' up! I hope I can catch their set at Outside Lands in SF next month!

MANY thanks to Brendan Curtis for recommending these super talented boys to me!!

Neil Young (aka JIMMY FALLON) Covering FANCY with Crosby, Stills & Nash

I know I'm a week late on this one but it still must be said (& IN CASE YOU MISSED IT last week!): Jimmy Fallon is 1 of the most talented people on television right now. The fact that he can sing SO perfectly in Neil Young's voice while covering a modern, pop track from a completely polar opposite genre of music while also playing both guitar AND harmonica is just incredible & adding a little help from Crosby, Stills & Nash is just the icing on the cake!

Bad Kingdom by Moderat

I love having friends with such impeccable taste in music! SO many thanks to Betsy & Olav for introducing me to 1 of their fave artists, Moderat (the German electronic music project that is a collaboration between Sascha Ring, aka Apparat, & Gernot Bronsert & Sebastian Szary, aka Modeselektor), while we were leisurely enjoying mimosas on our sailboat anchored in Avalon Harbor just off the coast of Catalina Island yesterday morning. It's a tough life but somebody's gotta live it! B-)

P.S. Not only is this track sick but the video is also pretty rad!

The Perks of Being A Wallflower Soundtrack

After having only seen the film 1 time on a microscopically small screen on the back of an airplane seat en route from Tanzania to Amsterdam after climbing Mount Kilimanjaro with my dad in Jaunary 2013, I'd been desperately wanting to watch The Perks of Being A Wallflower again but was having trouble finding an HD version available to rent. The only copies available were for purchase only & cost about $20 which, every time I considered making the purchase, always seemed a bit overpriced...especially since I'd already seen it before.

Finally, last night (a whole year & a half later), I got to see the movie again! My super sweet boyfriend just happened to come across a $5 copy of the DVD in a store yesterday afternoon so he bought it for me! It's not HD or Bluray but it still looked pretty good on our flatscreen so whatever! I'm just SO happy I now OWN 1 of my favorite movies of the past couple years! And it was still totally awesome upon 2nd viewing.

The Perks of Being A Wallflower is a heartwarming yet often dark & somewhat depressing film. It has a little bit of everything: teenage awkwardness, bullies, young love, parents who just don't understand, high school dances, drug experimentation, family looking out for family, a few tragic revelations, new friendships, student/teacher bonding, literary appreciation, AMAZING music, mix tapes, football games, holidays & OUTSTANDING performances by the entire cast. I can't recommend it enough!

Here are just a few awesome songs from the soundtrack...and I'm not even including the tracks by The Smiths, New Order or David Bowie!

Could It Be Another Change by The Samples

Come On Eileen By Dexys Midnight Runners

Low by Cracker
