ROOM 8 | RIGHT WAY

It seems like lately every time I go out, someone’s telling me they’re a DJ or in a band. While I really do respect the art, and amount of work and dedication it takes to practice music (especially since I’m not capable), I have to admit I’m a bit of a music snob. Not in a o I only like obscure acts you’ve never heard of because no one is as good as the rolling stones kind of way, but I usually know if it’s gonna make me eargasm in the first 20-30 seconds, and most of the time it doesn’t.

Room 8 was a pleasant exception to the rule.

I’m not on the M83 bandwagon because I’ve seen them live, and couldn’t distinguish any of their other songs from each other, but Ian’s Young’s Sax solo made Midnight City their crown jewel, and I’m really liking this collaboration between him and Room 8.  Looking forward to the show this weekend Ezra! 🙂

NEW PHOENIX | ENTERTAINMENT JUST IN TIME FOR COACHELLA

Christian, Branco, Thomas and Deck.

I love these French boys, but based on this track, it sounds like their long awaited new album might sound just like their last one, which was amazing nevertheless.

Bankrupt! may not be revolutionary, but it’ll still be Phoenix. I hope they surprise us at Coachella with more. Look for it in April.
