May the rain gods and the sun gods and the academic gods and the retention of knowledge gods bless this school year for everyone. Here’s a compilation of Nick Hakim and a little Tom Misch that’s nice in your ears while studying, if you’re someone who can handle that audible stimulation with your GPA resting in your hands.

ALERT ALERT: IMPORTANT MUSIC AHEAD

tumblr_n8co6h30zO1qgezyvo1_1280

Tom Misch is one of the most insanely talented 19 year olds I’ve ever encountered in my whole damn life.

He’s a composer, songwriter, guitarist, singer AND violinist. You’ve just been schooled by Tom Misch, and you probably haven’t even pressed play yet.

Here are a few of his latest and greatest tracks:

Tom Misch // Karma (feat. Loyle Carner)

Tom Misch // Moving Faster

Bearcubs x Tom Misch // Colours of Freedom

And he says he’s currently working on a full EP with singer Carmody. Here’s a taste on the kind of stuff they’ve done together:

Tom Misch & Carmody // Release You

WOWWWW HE IS JUST SO GOOD. Please explore the rest of his soundcloud on another occasion, or right now, or whatever.

peace and love,

lu

Most of you are already well aware of Chet Faker‘s existence, maker of some of the world’s most seductive music. But I am here to forcefully tell you to just listen to it all again. All of it. Not for any reason in particular, just that his music suits so many moods and always makes you feel great. I’ll give you a little nudge to get you going:

Chet Faker — Talk Is Cheap

Chet Faker — Love And Feeling

Chet Faker — I’m Into You

Chet Faker — House Atriedes

You’re welcome.
Go nuts.

No Mythologies to Follow has arrived

5681

Boy oh boy, ‘s new album is finally out. “No Mythologies to Follow” has just been dropped and it is nothing short of incredible.

Unfortunately it has only been a short time since the album has been released so the only full-streaming site I can find is on the application Spotify, so CLICK THIS LINK and prepare for some dance magic.

BUT to curb your sadness from the lack of free downloads or whatever, here is a video teaser featuring a song from the album called Fire Rides with a drop in the chorus so nice you’ll feel like you just got hit by a semi-truck (super cool feeling, I know). I predict some freakin insane remixes coming down the line with this one.
Watch:

“When you are in the most intense time of your teenage/self-exploration years, you do stuff and experience things that can be destructive to yourself or others. You put yourself center of attention and compromise other people’s emotions. Simply because you’re insecure. You put everything on the edge — blow every little thing up to be the end of the world. You tend to act like a careless, ravaging maniac who just wants to tear the world apart because of the tornado inside of you. At least that’s how I felt,” MØ told TIME. “This video visualizes how I felt when I was a teenager — with a twist of irony.”

WOWWWWWW IT’S SOO00 GooOD

Oxy Swag Got Me Sad

tumblr_manyuzsAZS1r05jkho1_500Hey cool humans-
I’m just now remembering that I’ve definitely posted this here many months ago, but this is a beautiful but unfinished EP called Five Weeks by a certain lad by the name of Dali Mcdonald and his other really talented friends.
I’ll tell a dumb lil story real quick- I found two songs from this collection- Oxy Swag and Blue Eyes and Black Jeans- via a friend, reposted them on soundcloud, then probably posted them here upon falling in love with them. THEN, my OTHER friend Violet who was studying abroad in Italy MET frickin’ Dali himself in the exchange program she was in (!!!!?!?? still weirds me out).. Somehow Violet found out that he was the one I had recently posted about, and ALAS- a new friendship was forged from thousands of miles away. Thanks girl, you win a lot of points.

So that’s how I discovered Five Weeks. And here it is, in all its glory. Enjoy. Hi Dali. Hi Violet.

❤ ❤ Lucie ❤ ❤

p.s. I just noticed that sick little note in the description of the post on bandcamp shouting me out. swerve. bye.

SHE’S BACK WITH A VENGEANCE

MØ IS BACK.

mo_dont_wanna_dance_3

She recently released a single titled Don’t Wanna Dance from her upcoming album and as of today, there is a new video for it. She’s one of my favorite artists and one of the coolest people in general, so if you aren’t a fan then that’s too bad because I’ll be posting more and more about her in the next couple months, and especially on the release date of her new EP “NO MYTHOLOGIES TO FOLLOW” which will be out on March 10th of this year.

If you follow me on any other social media site at all you will probably know that I’ve recently rediscovered a past obsession with a very hip/beautiful/awesome/talented chick who goes by the stage name .. (her real name is Karen Marie Ørsted, in case any of you needed it to do some more background research on her after this). If you have some spare time on your hands- haha finals week haha- then you should definitely check out interviews with her at festivals and studio sesh’s like SXSW (she gives a lesson on how to pronounce her name in that one) or random other independent magz— BECAUSE she is one of the most unique artists of this time and I have a huge huge respect for her.

She has her debut studio album coming out Feb.24.2014 which is titled “No Mythologies To Follow.”
You can pre-order it HERE if that’s your type of thing. Otherwise, I’ll most likely be back with a full album review on feb. 24th..

Here’s a video of her collab single with Diplo that has me going nuts:
