Silversun Pickups: This Los Angeles bred indie rock band formed combines the influence of The Flaming Lips and Sonic Youth for their catchy, dream pop roots. If you’re not familiar with their sound, check them out NOW starting with “Bloody Mary” and “All The Go Inbetweens”.

LCD Soundsystem: If you haven’t yet heard of this unique electronic rock group Led by James Murphy, we need to change that. The group has done nothing but amaze us since they formed in Brooklyn in 2002. Once you’re hooked on their fusion of dance-punk & electronica, you won’t be able to stop listening. Our faves are “Daft Punk Is Playing At My House” and “I Can Change”.

Mac Miller: Now, that’s a rap. Pittsburgh born and raised Malcom James McCormick, known to fans as Mac Miller, rose to fame with the release of his debut studio album “Blue Slide Park”. His smooth rhymes will make you wonder how he makes spitting verses seem so effortless. Listen to “100 Grandkids” and “Another Night” to hear the best Mac has to offer.

Mac Miller will take the stage at Lolla25.

Music Monday: Aerie’s Midsummer Playlist

musicmonday

It feels like just yesterday that we were longing for the heat, sun and summer jams. Now it’s almost the middle of the season! Don’t let those pool parties slip away without having the perfect soundtrack to the splashes.

With this selection of tunes, we mixed up fresh new sounds with a few throwbacks for good measure. Get to know some of our favorite power ladies including Charlie XCX with her song “Boom Clap”; Ellie Goulding with “Goodness Gracious” off her hit record Halcyon Days; and “On a Roll” from the dance pop duo, Icona Pop. Also, take note of newcomer, Elle Eyre. We’ve had our eyes, ahem, ears on her for awhile. Trust, her song “Deeper” is an earworm.

We also reached as far back as 1990 to bring you Bell Biv DeVoe’s “Poison,” ‘cause, let’s face it, that song is timeless. And we jumped forward a whole decade to remember how cool the Dandy Warhols were (and still are) with their song “Bohemian Like You.” Then topped off our trip down memory lane with AlunaGeorge’s cover of “This is How We Do It”.

Go ahead. Slip into your bikini, toss on those sunnies and push play! Listen to our Midsummer Playlist on Spotify here.

What’s Trending this month? you asked, we tell…

Music with a starter course and a can of paint? Yep, you read that right…

So what’s this all about? First things first: let’s discuss music and how it plays into our everyday lives. Your favorite song that you play over and over again. The song that reminds you of summer nights or your first kiss. The playlist that tells the story of your life. The song that helped you get through your first breakup. If that’s not enough to remind you of the impact that music has on our lives, new research shows that it can impact your food and your personal space too!

How, you ask?

You’re about to move into your new college apartment and the first thing you want to do to claim your space is paint the walls. Now the big question comes into play… how will you choose between that light grey color or the cool mint green?

Kelly-Moore Paints teamed up with researchers at UC Berkeley on The Sound of Color project to help consumers display their feelings through color in their personal space. Check out how they translate music and color correlations into paint palettes!

If you love throwback hits like Nirvana’s Smells like Teen Spirit and want to evoke a sense of nostalgia then light purple is your color. Or maybe Beyoncé’s Crazy In Love has you feeling a little romantic… then swap the purple for pink.

music

Check out their Pinterest board for more music and color inspiration

Don’t want to have your feelings on the wall quite yet? Then check out:

(Dis)Play That Song was created by Barcelona-based creative designer Hendrik Hohenstein who developed an app that converts song lyrics into a pattern of graphic elements and color. The project not only allows people to see what their favorite songs look like, but also provides a different medium through which to discover new music.

And to top it all off… studies reveal that sound can affect and even enhance the taste of your food and suggest songs people should play while enjoying them.

Making mac and cheese and need a playlist to go with it?

Supper provides food and drink recipes from notable chefs and mixologists, as well as recommendations for related songs that they curate. Meal recipes come with two playlists: one to listen to while cooking and another to hear when eating.

Would you paint your walls based on your favorite songs? Tell us in the comments below.
