You’ve Got the Love

Ayoo bloggers! Hope your Monday went by fast and good! Glad this week is moving fast. At least for me it is. Since yesterday I didnt blog about music, I will today 🙂 Over this weekend I sadly didn’t get much time to explore with music, but! I was looking through my music library and found this song and completely forgot about it! This song is a great remix by XX who is one of my favorite bands. They make any song just amazing 😉 This song is a remix/cover of the song “You’ve Got the Love” by Florence And The Machine. I love how upbeat and mellow this song is and always puts me in a great mood. Great choice to listen to before getting ready for school or a party! Puts you in a great mood! Take a chance with it please 😉

Comment below if you have any recommendations for me to listen to!

Good morning bloggers. Sorry I haven’t been blogging lately. I have been extremely busy with school and getting ready for the finals. In my MAD class we are creating our own websites for a awareness and that has been taking up all my blogging time. SO, my apologies! But for this weeks music I’ll be writing about my favorite band at the moment, City and Colour. City and Colour started their music journey in 2004 in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada and have been striving ever since. City and Colour is the recording alias for Canadian singer/song writer Dallas Green. They are currently signed to: Dine Alone, Vagrant, Arts & Crafts Mexico. To see their tour dates and get to know them better check out their website here. Check out their music! I promise it will not be a disappointment!! They always get me in a hyped and happy mood, hopefully they do the same for you 😉

She Wants to go to the Seaside

photo 9 Morning bloggers! Hope your weekend was filled with new memories and great times. Mine was 😉 This past Sunday my friend Anna surprised me at my house with her rack shack and told me we were going on a beach walk. At first I was a little confused on the idea since it was freezing and super windy down at the beach, but hey good way to exercise and to get out of the house. We both decided to head down to Montecito to Butterfly Beach. The beach was gorgeous with the wind hitting the water creating choppy waves, and big grey clouds surrounding the sky. It was a beautiful sight. We walked up and down the beach and found a little tiny cave that we decided would be a great place to take a picture. The minute I saw this picture it reminded me of one of my favorite songs, Seaside by The Kooks. I love the mellow and beautiful vibe the song has and it always puts me in a relaxing mood. The Kooks have some amazing songs and I highly recommend for you to check out their music if you haven’t already! Never a disappointment. Have a great rest of your Monday!

Boat Remix

Very calming, upbeat, and head bobbing. I personally am a huge fan of listening to music everyone morning while I am getting ready for school to pump me up and put me in a delightful mood for the rest of the day! This morning I listened to this song while getting ready and I couldn’t help but keep replaying it. It gets me in a great, exciting, and happy mood. Ready to conquer dreadful school and be happy while doing it. I highly encourage you to go out to all different music websites when you have free time and expand your knowledge on music and be very open to listening and discovering new music. I promise you, you won’t be sorry!

Time To Rage

coachella 3coachella

This previous weekend was the first weekend of Coachella. I know I know I’ve been blogging a lot about Coachella, but what can I say. I was super excited about this music festival. As you may have read before, I grew up in La Quinta where the concert is taken place so I have many old friends that I couldn’t wait to meet up with at the festival to hang out with. I arrived to the desert Thursday night to beat the horrible traffic Friday. For the weekend I stayed at a family friends house who has a son my age. We’ve been biffles since diapers. Love that kid! Anyways! We all headed over to Coachella together and I met up with my best friend Madi and our friend Ellery from Malibu. We met up with some of our Palm Springs friends and just had a great time! As the weekend went on I saw more and more people who I havent seen in years and I was so excited to see them. Most of them being my brothers friends who are in college that I grew up with! Miss those guys! This years Coachella was an amazing time and experience and I wouldnt change one thing about it. I cannot wait to go next year and I’m already counting down the days 😉

Heart Skipped A Beat

Hello fellow bloggers! I’m back and ready to blog like crazy! This past weekend was Coachella as many of you know and I saw some amazing bands!! One band that really shocked me and caught my attention was The xx. I have loved their music for a while now and couldn’t wait to see them at Coachella. My friend Kanin and I were about 40 feet away from the stage off to the right. Amazing view! I was in shock to hear how amazing they were live. Way better then a studio recording forsure. After raging all day in the Sahara tent with techno music, The xx hit the spot with their mellow, yet still upbeat vibe. If you haven’t listened to The xx yet I highly highly recommend it! They never disappoint 🙂 To check out more of the band click here and scope them out 😉

Say My Name

For as long as I could remember I’ve been in love with the song, “Say My Name” by Destiny Child. The other day when I was in Hawaii I was on my soundcloud and this remix showed up on my news feed and I feel in love. It’s a perfect remix with the combination of Cry Me A River by Justin Timberlake. Although on this blog I post upbeat remixes, this one is very mellow and relaxing to listen to. Since I have discovered it I haven’t stopped listening to it.

The Neighbourhood made a wonderful cover of this song! The Neighbourhood is a band that was formed in Norman, Oklahoma in 2004. They are yet still unsigned. The band is made up with the following memebers: Matt Duckworth, Eric Mai, and Philip Rice. If you are into the band XX I highly recommend this band for you!! Click here to check out their website and more about them!  Have a great rest of your Monday!!

Feel The Love

Hey everyone! Sorry that I haven’t been posting “Music Monday” lately. Everything has been hectic with school and spring break and I haven’t really been able to find new songs to blog about. But!! Over spring break I discovered many new songs and this is one has to be one of my favorites!! Every time I listen to it, I just get pumped and wanna party. Hollaaaa 😉 This song is perfect to listen to in any mood. It’s very mellow, but at the same time it has that little dubstep spice in it 😉

The original song “Fell The Love” was written by Rudimental. Kill Paris made an excellent remix of it I must say! Rudimental started in 2010 from the United Kingdom. They are singed to the labels: Asylum and Black Butter. The band is made up of the following members: Piers Agget, Kesi Dyrden, Amir Amor, and DJ Locksmith. For more information about the band click here.
