A new band to check out

Milo Greene just released their debut self-titled album last month. This pop-folk band delivers harmonious tracks that I love to listen to over and over again. If you like bands like Fleet Foxes, The Head and the Heart, or Delta Spirit, then you can't miss out on this LA-based band!

You should definitely listen to the entire album but the songs you can't miss are: "1957," "Don't Give Up on Me," and "What's the Matter."

I would love to see them in a chill setting—at an outdoors venue or music festival. I am very disappointed because I just found out that they will be at Stubbs (Outdoors) on Oct. 13th (ACL Saturday) with Civil Wars and there is no way I will make an ACL Aftershow, seriously, it's impossible. I don't know how people do it.... maybe they will see how awesome Stubbs is and come back to Austin on a headlining tour! A girl can only dream.


Icona Pop's single "I LOVE IT" is my new favorite song to listen to when I'm in the mood to get pumped up or party. It's been on my radar for about 2 months now, thanks to Sirius XMU, but I finally found it on Spotify and therefore listen to it all of the time! 

My favorite line: "You're from the 70's but I'm a 90's bitch! I don't care. I love it!" - I love it!

This band is just another reason why I love what Scandinavia has produced (music-wise) — i.e., Lykke Li, Of Monsters & Men, ROBYN, Peter Bjorn & John, Royksopp, Bjork, Ace of Bass ;)

If you haven't checked out some of those bands before, they're definitely worth your time! Royksopp and Bjork are a little out there but most of the others have some mainstream songs that most people can enjoy. 

I'm leaving you with a classic for all of you "90's bitches" — Ace of Base "The Sign."

You are welcome.
