MusicBest of the Fest: LuLu*s at Sasquatch ’13

I don’t think anyone could have had a better time than I did this weekend at Sasquatch. Although I wasn’t able to stay for Monday (I missed: Postal Service, Toro y Moi, At-J and Dirty Projectors), I still got to knock off quite a few bands off my bucket list. I also met Elvis Costello, aka the coolest guy in the world. Below are some of my favorite bands I got to see, as well as some adorable festival looks! I also snagged some pictures from the Lulu*s Instagram  and mine, as well as some fun Polaroids I snapped. Enjoy!

MusicListen Up! She & Him Volume 3

She & Him  = Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward

she & him

Well aren’t we excited! After months of anticipation, our favorite lounge/folk duo, She & Him, releases their latest album entitled simply, “Volume 3″. Having tempted us with the single “Never Wanted Your Love” earlier this year, we found ourselves all wrapped up in the ripening sound of this airy, upbeat group. Fronted by our favorite “New Girl”, Zooey Deschanel, the album makes good on the retro, sixties sound we’ve come to know and cherish from She & Him, and you can almost imagine Zooey sitting along a sunny fence singing happily like a little bird.

I mean, how can you not melt a little over lyrics like “I know a girl from a lonely street, cold as ice cream but still as sweet” on the track Sunday Girl that dishes up a full verse in Zooey’s breathy French? If you’re a fan of dreamy, seventies-esque keyboard chords, then you’re going to love the track “Somebody Sweet to Talk To”, and the super catchy lyrics of “Together” are soon to be your next summer singalong.

Fans can catch She & Him on their short summer 2013 tour, or you can skip the crowds and catch this album. Released today!
