Let’s Talk About: ATTN EVERYONE

This post title was way too aggressive for what I’m about to say. No I didn’t win anything or meet anyone cool or invent a new instrument, BUT, The Black Keys just announced their tour and for one leg they are touring with Cage The Elephant, one leg Jake Bugg, and the last St. Vincent, that is an excessive amount of talent and I think I’m slowly imploding.

That is all. Except:

1. It’s finals weeks so that’s why I’ve been a resident of Slacker City, post-wise.

2. If that first ‘paragraph’ wasn’t the longest run on sentence you’ve ever seen, then you’re a liar and I’m suddenly good at English.

3. Three more days until the Lana Del Rey concert, six until HAIM, and some amount of days until MØ, so you better believe I will be back with a bang (I just used so many B’s and I loved every second of it).

Let’s Talk About: Jake Bugg

Swoon. Jake Bugg, the new and upcoming teen artist from England. His music, especially his hit single Lightning Bolt, sounds like it came directly from the 60’s. I am enthralled. I think his sound is so incredibly cool and fresh. My friend saw Jake Bugg live the other day and said he was a great live performer, however, didn’t really interact with the audience. To me, that is a sign of true musicianship. Something I admire. I am incredibly hopeful for the future of Jake Bugg. With his debut album Jake Bugg and sophomore album Shangri La, Jake Bugg is truly making a name for himself. He is set to play a few big music festivals this summer, which is always helpful in promoting budding musicians careers. What is better than a young indie rocker from England? Nothing. Well, maybe ice cream and Netflix. But other than that, absolutely nothing.
