Firefly Festival 2015: Countdown

Happy Friday Earthlings!

The Firefly Festival is about to begin in T-Minus 5 days!  Can you believe it?  Chicago’s Red Frog Entertainment has now teamed up Los Angeles’ Goldenvoice/AEG Live (the juggernaut behind our county’s largest concert festival…Coachella) for this 4th installment.  Based in good ole lil Dover, Delaware (The First State…who would’ve thunk?) Firefly is expecting over 90,000 people for this year’s turnout.  It’s been growing by leap and bounds each year, doubling in size and breaking attendance records for any summer concert series nationwide.  Even Sir Paul McCartney (of The Beatles, not Kanye West’s buddy, you ignorant youngsters) is headlining the bill.  Check out the Lineup above, and a recap of last year’s event below. Stay tuned for our post on the daily lineup schedule and survival guide.  Hurry to get your tickets because it is almost sold out again!  #switchflipcertified

Frank Ocean: Bad Religion (Live)

Whatitdo Wurld,

So, we are sure you’ve heard by now the news about Frank Ocean coming out about his first love being a male, right?  Well if not, click here.  The #NoMoreSecrets hash tag he started was the worldwide top viral trend of the past week.  The Odd Future (OFWGKTA) member and solo artist began his musical career as a ghostwriter for many elite R&B/Pop singers  such as Justin Bieber, Brandy and John Legend. His Nostalgic Ultra mixtape is critically held as one of the best releases of 2011.  He’s most widely known for writing hooks and collaborating w/ Jay-Z and Kanye West on the Watch The Throne album. With his July 12th debut album release and sold out summer tour, the world will finally get a taste of the latest R&B crooner to reinvent the genre.

Check out his live performance of the song “Bad Religion” below.  His debut television appearance on Jimmy Fallon will definitely prove the magic of this special young artist.  The song details an encounter with a religious Muslim taxi driver.  Their conversation contrasts the difference between the men’s faith, as Frankie croons about his same sex love affair.  Although his first official major label release will not be available on Target’s shelves (initial rumors implied due to his sexual orientation) since it dropped exclusively on iTunes first, Billboard charts still expect Channel Orange to rank at least #2 for the week.  Be sure to pick up a copy of this game changing debut album!

Twin Shadow: Five Seconds

Happy Friday Earthlings,

One of our most favorite bands that emerged in the last few years is Brooklyn’s Twin Shadow.  George Lewis Jr. debuted the flawless album Forget in 2010 (produced by Chris Taylor of Grizzly Bear) to much critical acclaim.  Once he assembled a touring band, Twin Shadow was able to take the album to new heights during live shows throughout 2011.  George’s well written 80’s alt pop tunes are dipped in Shoegaze and New Wave stylings ala The Smiths meets The Dears.  Here is the first video single “5 Seconds” off of their new album Confess which hits cyberstores July 10th.  Directed by Keith Musil, the short film is based on the novel “Night of the Silver Sun” written by George Lewis Jr. and Eric Green.  It has a modernized take on misunderstood rebels similar to the classic biker film Easy Rider. Let us know if you dig it as much as we do!
