Todd Slater hands down makes the coolest posters. I was searching online for some and I came across his website and I love him! Tell me this Big Lebowski poster isn't the coolest thing you have ever seen? (even cooler if you have actually seen the movie)
Another really cool site is Status Serigraph! They make awesome posters, unfortunately like Todd Slater, they're all sold out.
I don't know if you all know this, but I'm pretty into this band, Mumford and Sons…
This morning I was doing my daily googling of these guys, and came across this video that I am honestly embarrassed I haven't seen before because it has my two absolute favorite things: Mumford and Sons and Saturday Night Live. Will Forte, Ed Helms, Jason Bateman, and Jason Sudekis do a Hopeless Wanderer parody video and it is perhaps the best video i have ever seen.
If you're looking for some new music, my favorite website is Ones To Watch… is basically self explanatory, they post about all the bands and artists they are predicting will become the next big thing. My new faves X Ambassadors are featured on the website now, so are my Haim girls!
When you're on the site, it tells you where the artist is from, upcoming shows, and who they sound similar two to help you weed out all the genres you're not into! Some of these artists are a lot more well known than others and a lot of these artists you have more than likely heard, but in case you haven't, check them out! I decided to post about my favorites that are currently featured on the home page!
I have already posted these songs, but I just want to drill it into your brain how in love I am with these two.
Ones to Watch:
Went to an unbelievable convert tonight!! The X Ambassadors, better than I could have imagined! They played on the little stage down in TDU and put on an amazing show! Got to meet and chat with the lead singer after and he was incredibly nice! Everyone needs to check them out, they for sure are about to make it big! I got kinda photo happy, but I am glad I did because I know i'll be happy I have all these when these guys are really popular! Here are some pics and clips from the show!
So here are a couple of clips from tonight. It's a weird video but I wanted y'all to see how amazing they are live, I had to cut a lot because I ruined most of the videos with my amazing singing talent
Here are my two favorite songs, and then their video for Unconsolable!
I was so impressed by how cool and nice these guys were, I really hope they become really successful because they deserve it.
Praying to god I am better by tomorrow because I am so excited about seeing X Ambassadors LIVE tomorrow in TDU!!
They're so awesome! Touring right now with Imagine Dragons and will be at Firefly this summer!!
Today has been a rough one. I am so sick I can barely keep my eyes open, and have a permanent sneeze face (bleh). I am currently lying in bed surrounded by cough drop wrappers and tissues. I took a French test this morning, it went terribly I couldn't even remember my student ID.. thats how sick I feel. While looking through Instagram Danielle Haim posted about their new vid they released today!! So good, brightened up my day! I think when I went home this weekend I got my mom hooked on them too! I could really use Susan right now, I went to the store to buy medicine and I didn't know which one to buy so I bought a couple different kinds and they asked me if I was cooking meth, not kidding. I probably looked like I did, because I look like Lisa from Ned's Declassified. Anyways.. here's that new video...
As you may have realized, when I find something I like, I dive in head first and become obsessed. I am trying my best to refrain from posting everything I love all at once because then I would have nothing to post about later. If you have read my blog before, or know me you know I am in love with Mumford and Sons (restraining order obsessed) and Haim. The next band I'm going to talk about is the Avett Brothers. They're pretty up there with Mumford and The Head and The Heart
(will talk about them soon) when it comes to my daily music sessions. They all have music that never gets old! I mean Mumford only has 2 albums and I listen to them every day. The Avett Brothers have been around for a little longer and are extremely underrated. When I like something I am probably the example in the dictionary under the world stalker because I want to know everything about them and whatever they're working on next. SO today is the day I decided to post about The Avett Brothers because I came across this amazing video that almost brought me to tears. Obviously I'm exaggerating, but I came close, which, for those of you who know me, is a big deal. It's rare that you find talent , especially two brothers, like this where they both are better live then they are when they're recorded. Anyways, this is getting corny...so watch this video and you will understand.
Not gonna lie, I was listening to this next video in my shower, and almost slipped and cracked my head open.
Pronounced: "high am"
Beyond obsessed with this awesome band of three sisters, Este, Danielle, and Alana. They have toured with Mumford, Florence, and Monsters of Men. Yes they are a girl band, but they're actually so cool. Re-defined that horribly cheesy "girl-power" stereotype. Here's their video, Falling. I believe I also posted The Wire somewhere below!
Currently, I am sitting in the library pretending to study for French, but I just don't have it in me tonight, or really ever. The only good part about coming to the library is this is the one time I find good music. I procrastinate like its my job on spotify and song kick looking for new music, and upcoming concerts. Here it is: Music Monday, a few songs that get me through rough Monday nights!
I love The Arctic Monkeys, but…come on you have a dumb name.
Great song, horrible music video. DONT watch it. It kind of ruined the song for me. The word Tessallate means to cover with mosaic, which is so cool! I expected like a weird psychedelic, hippy video but this just looks like a bunch of trashy people in an empty building. Maybe I just don't understand this concept. BUT really cool song.
I'm sure many of you have heard this before, its such a pretty song. Angus and Julia Stone are awesome!
Also, another disappointing music video, its just nothing special compared to the actual song.
