Big Mumford & Sons show coming to Maine this weekend. Thought I would give out some props by showing the 2012 video of the greatest concert I’ve never been to. God this looks awesome. Get fired up!
• Ghost Beach – Been There Before - Ghost Beach, the genius behind “Miracle” and other tracks, slams me again with this awesome track. It’s angry and happy at the same time. It’s the PERFECT Saturday afternoon/rooftop slamming cocktails jam. Might have to buy this entire album.
• Snoop Lion – La La La – Born again rapper Snoop Lion worked with Major Lazer on his latest trip down to the Caribbean and comes back with a gospel of reggae. Seems that Snoop started smothing something a little harder than the chronic he’s used to. Whatever – he’s still awesome.
• Air Traffic Controller – You Know Me – This is one of those songs that has a straight beat, basic instruments, and reverb wrapped around the entire thing. It sounds 3D – like Arcade Fire using major chords. Something celebratory about this song – just not sure what it is exactly. Great tune.
• Zac Brown Band – The Wind – Fast and pretty cheesy, ZBB somehow manages to deliver a “stuck in my head” country song that mandates a volume increase while in the car. I’m not sure why it happens or how it happens, but it happens every time. I think good times are just burned into our DNA – YOUR SOUL WANTS TO HAVE FUN….LISTEN TO IT.
• The String Cheese Incident – It Is What It Is – I was on a run the other day and this came on my iPod. Instantly, I was teleported to the summer of 2011 with two of the greatest humans alive in a deep valley in Colorado, casting flies and landing fish. It was the most beautiful place I had been in years, surrounded by an energy that was almost blinding to every sense I had – a purity that was rich with life, untapped, and ours to enjoy. After a long day in the river, we piled into the F-150 and this song came on. I turned to my buddy and said “You know, this is all right.”
