JACOB BANKS: THE BOY WHO CRIED FREEDOM

JACOB BANKS

i’m not really sure how i came across jacob banks’ music but i know that i haven’t stopped listening to it since i did; it’s addicting. when you listen to it, you feel the music, the emotion, you can see it (yeah, i’m going there)- there is this visual aspect in it that is really indescribable, which is what i think makes you want to keep hitting repeat. today he released his latest ep- the boy who cried freedom and had a chat with nylon about his inspirations, aspirations and sound . you can read the full interview here.

I love writing poems. I listen to a lot of poets speak. And then, I just tell the truth. I think my job is to help people get through the day a little easier. If I tell my truth, then more people can relate to it.

tour dates:

april 24th- hoxton Bar & kitchen– london, united kingdom

may 4th- mercury lounge– new york, ny

may 11th- masonic lodge– los angeles, ca

PETER SILBERMAN: IMPERMANENCE

peter-silberman-impermanence

i am beyond excited about this album. yesterday, i listened to the antlers’ frontman, peter silberman talk with bob boilen about life, his return to music and his first solo album. back in 2014, peter lost his hearing in his left ear, forcing him to acquire a more quiet lifestyle leaving his friends, family and fans in the noisy world he once knew. after living in his new found silence, his hearing began to progress and he began playing music again… in a whole new way with a whole new sound.

“I started trying to play again and trying to sing again, testing where the boundary was of the sensitivity and of the pain of it. What I found was that if I sang very quietly and if I played guitar very quietly that this would be a path for me.”

T.O.L.D.

Processed with VSCO with m5 preset

last thursday i spent the better half of my night grooving to some new tunes by a band i had never heard before. as i entered the echo, i took a seat on the leather couch in the corner, giving myself some distance and a clear view of the stage and crowd (that place can get hot, sweaty and crowded fast so i was trying to prepare for what may come). 10:00pm and right on schedule, t.o.l.d. took the stage. still sat in the back, observing, listening, my eyes opened wide at the sound of steel drums. almost immediately, i stood up to get closer. as the song went on, the crowd and i were in a hypnotic and synchronized sway, something you couldn’t help but be a part of. song after song i stood my ground as the space began to fill. the music was a contagious thing that drew us like moths to a flame. i may not have known who they were at 10:00pm that night but by 10:30pm, i was glad to find myself in that room. be sure to keep an eye out for their new album, it’s not about the witches due to release on june 17th.

ANDREW BIRD: “LEFT HANDED KISSES”

 

this video is just so damn good (insert slow clap here). yesterday, andrew bird released the video for his duet track featuring fiona apple. i couldn’t take my eyes off the two love angst musicians with their passionate back and forth banter. really looking forward to this new album  come april 1st!

THINK PINK.

well, i never thought in a million years that i would be writing this but here it is… i love pink and i don’t care who knows it! i never found the color to be all that appealing, mainly because i associated it with prissy girls who like glitter and fuzzy feather pens. for the past couple of weeks this color has been stalking me, forcing it’s way into my subconscious. this color has presented itself to me in a way that is making me re-think pink. i’m starting to see the mature side, the blush rather than the hot pink, the sophisticated art student vs. the preppy prom queen. however you want to look at it, pink has arrived and it has my heart.

 

P.S. be sure to check out the band wedding dress, not just because their album cover works with this color scheme but because they’re really good.
