Wet Ink: Purity Ring – “Push Pull”

1st Album Cover

Got something brand new for you guys. Yeah, you can send me messages about my lack of posting but WoD came out and I’ve been chest deep into getting ready for that. Gonna TRY to post, but I am as easily distracted by the internet as the rest of you.

But, that’s not why we’re here right now. Finally after so long, Purity Ring put out a new song. Push Pull. Here you go. No jump for today. See you next time.

If you’ve been around for a minute then you know that I’ve got a bit of a real melodic thirst for chill music. Fyfe fills that role quite often when I just want to relax and drink something. Here’s something to go with the Soundtrack of Our Lives:

20syl and Why you should care.

I bet you thought that I was only going to be doing show reviews. Nah. I haven’t forgotten you and my bag is packed full of new music as well.

Some of you don’t know who 20syl is. And you were okay with that. That was wrong of you and your life is much less fufilled than it can be. French, with sass and a great electronic soul. 20syl has been blazing up my playlists for a few months now. You know the rules, I’m not just gonna prattle about music. Music speaks for itself, and 20syl almost soulful tracks can speak for both of us.

Just taste it a bit.

Here’s 20syl’s Motifs -EP:

That should be good for your heart.

T.W.o -BAGO!!!!!

Just like previously, Two Weeks of Bago this time. I wonder how I’m going to do this with most of her music being on SC. But we’re going to start with a video for “Bath Salts” the first song from the album Sunday’s Best.

 

We’re going to listen to the entire album of “Sunday’s Best” and maybe some more. Let’s have a good ride folks.

An Ode to Some Nice Music. Twenty One Pilots- “Ode to Sleep”

Ever had a group that you listen to remind you of someone else but you couldn’t quite figure out who it was? Remember when you couldn’t exactly understand why you really liked a band? That was how I felt when I first listened to “Ode to Sleep” by Twenty One Pilots. Reminded me a bit of Panic @ the Disco mixed w/ a bit of Hollywood Undead. But, that’s just me, tell me what you think about them.

-See you on the flip side-

S.o.O.L – Something to lounge to

I’ve got something a bit more relaxing to chill to today. My first taste of some real lounge music ear candy for the 2014 summer season. Although this song came out over a year ago I still think many of you haven’t heard this yet. My first foray into the world of Bago was her song “Devil Inside” on a Hattie Wilson BTS video that came out a few weeks ago on vimeo (not showing that because of “reasons”). She’s got a real sweet voice. I like to think her voice is a mix between Badu and LDR with sick beats that rival any of the great R&B songs of our era.

Today’s Track, “I Forget You” starts off like a horror story would with the soft laugh and then pounces on you like a jump scare with a beat that won’t let you go. Her words flow into the chorus and they take you for a ride and don’t let you go till it sequences into the next track.

It’s a true Head-Swayer. Here you go: “I Forget You” by Bago

Party hard My Friends,

Something so new the ink isn’t dry yet “Draft Day” By Drake

OVO

Big ass image, new ass track. I’m bringing you something that is so new that the ink hasn’t even set yet. Drake just dropped a new track from his personal label October’s Very Own as a shout out to Johnny Football. And, I got to admit. This shit is bangin. Fresh flow, throwback beat, smooth track. Don’t take my word for it, pop the music into your ear and just enjoy the track.

Taste the music-

I’m Just in Love – S.o.O.L

(C) Tove Lo

You know that feeling of level-headedness that you get when you’re around someone that you really care about? That whole just being near that person makes you calmer and and content? Where you don’t really need anything except from them except their presence?

This isn’t that type of love.

This is the “crazy” “what are we doing here” “grab my hands as we run through the street laughing like crazy people” love. One of those that makes the people around you ask “What the hell are they on?”. This is “singing to your love in the middle of the day for no reason” love. It’s young love and old love brought together into one really nice song. This short banger with a bass heavy chorus goes perfectly with the lyrics.

Here’s “Not on Drugs” by Tove Lo:

A character substitution turns, Tove lo into “Love to” and her new EP Truth Serum is out on Itunes and Spotify now. And, you’d “Love to” listen to the rest of it. Trust me.

A Song for All the Ladies In Relatinoships – S.o.O.L.

Ladies,

I’m here once again to pour some sweet music into you ears. This afternoon, we’re here to remind you about about the fact that there are many other fish in the sea.

No, not really. While I’m quite sure there are really tons of fish in the sea, the likelihood that you’ll find one with the perfect cogs for your machine is slim. Actually, given that there are like 7 and a half billion people in this world, there’s probably a greater chance that you’ll find someone who is much more perfect for you elsewhere than in your current living location. But, that’s not the point. The point is that I needed a way to ease into this amazing remix.

Wet – Don’t Wanna Be Your Girl (Branchez Remix); (Brought to you by Mr. Suicide Sheep)

Oh yeah, side note: Did any of you notice how really close 13 was with his predictions? Fucking beastly.

And, I realized that I typoed, but I’m leaving it for the future. I am human.
