MusicMust Have Music List Day 1: Passion Pit!

Every so often everyone gets the music blues and is in need of new music to entertain their day with. I recently struck out with my iTunes collection and emailed Kristin Knauff (our LA stylist and vintage buyer) about possibly sending me a list of music that she’d been listening to recently. To my surprise, I realized that I already had some of the albums she sent me but hadn’t listened to them in far too long!

I’m going to post some music every day this week from her list so you can join me in discovering or re-discovering these awetastic bands!

Here is Passion Pit and hopefully you’ll be as passionate about their pizzzzazzzz as I am! Passion Pit was formed in 2007 in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Their debut EP was Pocket Change and their first full length album was Manners which was released in 2009.

The video below is Passion Pit’s The Reeling watch, listen, and have some fun with it!


 

MusicBreathe Carolina

Breathe Carolina is an electronic pop/scream band formed in 2007 composed of Denver, Colorado natives David Schmitt and Kyle Even. The name Breathe Carolina came from a strange dream Schmitt had in 9th grade, about a woman named Carolina living his life. In 2009, the band announced that they had left Rise Records and signed with Fearless Records, began recording and finished their second alblum Hello Fascination.

If you enjoy dancing and listening to this genre of music I’m sure you’ll love Breathe Carolina’s new alblum Hello Fascination. Their awesome first single off the new alblum, Hello Fascination, is a very fast and upbeat song with catchy lyrics. Check it out and then vote for them on our contest!

 

MusicWill You Still Love Me Tomorrow?

This week I’m reviewing an old favorite, Lykke Li! I somehow managed to forget about this lovely Swedish siren until she recently popped back up on a playlist and I became, once again, enamored with her haunting voice.

For a great example of the slower and serious side of her music, I recommend that you listen first to Tonight (found below) and then to Lykke Li’s Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow that is available for free downloading on her site!

Then after she tears your heart out pick up your feet by dancing along with her in Little Bit!

MusicSparks the Rescue


Not much comes to mind when thinking about the state of Maine except for their thousands of lakes… that is until now.

Sparks the Rescue is a 5-man pop/rock band ensemble from Portland, Maine. Their originality, high energy, and musical talent makes this band a force to reckon with.

Ten years in the making has evolved Sparks the Rescue, comprised of Alex Roy (vocals),Toby McAllister (guitar), Patrick O’Connell(guitar), Ben Briggs (bass) and Nathan Spencer (drums) from high school wannabes to rock stars. In 2009, MTV crowned them the official winner of the “I Want My Music On MTV! Competition!, and they are now are touring across the country on the VANS WARPED TOUR.

Their latest single “We Love Like Vampires” off of their “Eyes to the Sun” album has caught the attention of fans and vampire lovers everywhere. They have incorporated societies obsession/fad with vampires into a pop/rock love song.

I love their music video because it is unique, yet relatable, and I must say they do look good with fangs!
