You and I just weren’t thinking right

I love the feeling I get from watching Toro Y Moi’s latest video You and I. It’s simple, but the color, light, and sound is simply gorgeous. As one commenter puts it, “this makes me want to cook mac and cheese ass naked.” Okay, I’m not exactly sure that’s what I had in mind, but it does have me floating up amongst the clouds and drifting the calm waters of the Pacific.

Fat Tony just made a compelling case for fast food

Big fast food chains have taken a beating the last 15 years as “wellness” has become a bajillion dollar industry. That’s why it’s kind of nice to see rapper Fat Tony paying homage to that feeling when you’re drunk, everything’s closed, but you got to get that 4th meal in. This track is damn catchy too.

Our June mixtape

We’re back with a mixtape that would make for a mighty fine music festival. On this month’s mix, you’ll hear tracks from Sheer Mag, SZA, Sylvan Esso, and indie darlings of yesteryear. Slide into these beats and get your grind on Gina.

Do-Tell: Com Truise [interview]

Having bolted early from my full-time gig, I followed a maze of hallways to meet Seth Haley (Com Truise) in the Mezzanine’s green room. Here, we took a seat on a cushy leather sofa and discussed the important issues of today: Tom Cruise, the best place to get a sandwich in Seattle, and of course, his newest full-length album Iteration, which drops June 16 on Ghostly. Have a listen below and be sure to catch Seth on tour throughout North America and Europe.

Our April 2017 mixtape

You may already be familiar with this month’s contributor, singer/songwriter Rocky Votolato, who we’ve been pals with far before this blog existed. Rocky kicks off this month’s mix with an artist whose album he’s had on repeat lately. Tune in and read more about what he’s been up to below.

About Rocky Votolato

If you meet Rocky at one of his shows, you’ll immediately realize what a genuine person he is. And we don’t mean that as he’s just another nice guy. This is 99th percentile, makes you feel like the most important person in the world GENUINE. It’s why we can’t wait for his tour dates and it always feels like we pick right back up from our last conversation, even if it’s been two years.

Rocky has been consistently dropping records since 1999, but we’re especially stoked to see that he’s embarking on a summer living room tour, which happens to be our favorite way to catch a show. He’ll be playing his Suicide Medicine album, whose title track will make you feel something deep (and if it doesn’t, you might want to check your pulse). Make sure you move on those tickets, but if he’s not swinging through your city, you can still follow the tour via Instagram.
