Oh West Coast Best Coast – I’m not sure if I’ll ever seriously embrace your granola ways. I’m not gonna lie, I love sipping on kambucha and smelling soy candles, but it’s too much to offer me flaxseed pancakes and locally grown organic eggs for breakfast. I kid you not, this stuff is on our hotel breakfast menu.
George and I are excited, however, to sneak away from family obligations in granola-town to check out the San Fran Indie scene. I’m hoping that a few Coachella leftovers wandered up to the North. Having done some research, I found we’re lucky to be there on the same days that Yo La Tengo is playing… but I’m thinking we’ll try some smaller venues such as Amnesia. Who knows, this is my first time doing San Fran Indie.
Thom Yorke and homecoming make for a great weekend. Combine George’s weekend and my weekend and that’s what you get. Get psyched for George’s post about the Thom Yorke, Flying Lotus concert. As for me, here are some things to get to know
because you can’t say no to disco
because this is the best lyric I’ve heard recently, “Valium, in volumes. I thought I found the cure for my, I thought I found the cure for my problems.”
will be at The Main Stage at Sonar on Friday April 23, Baltimore. I have a ticket to go but will be in San Francisco. Fortunately, our guest writer, Tom, will be there to document the event.
I know one of these guys! He went to Hopkins and they just got a write up on P4k! Cheers Baltimore and Hopkins. Click here for P4K debut
Upcoming: a new photo section to our blog, MGMT review…
The heat makes us stagnant – people lounge on “the beach” and discuss mustering up enough motivation to walk 20 feet to the library. Empty plastic cups with smoothie and iced-coffee remains litter the muddy grass. No one walks around to pick them up and throw them out. Instead of hiding inside to busily study, people fill the outdoor seats of coffee shops and ice-cream places. We move a little slower to get from place to place, maximizing our time to absorb the sun’s heat before we enter the cool indoors.
These next two songs are repetitious enough to
let your mind wander,
yet active enough to move you if you feel uninspired.

I realize the inconsistency of posting toro y moi after my last article. We make exceptions for good music.
