So if you haven't heard of Toro Y Moi by now, we won't chide you like the annoying Hipster who hates a band once others discover it, but gurrrrl-get on this musical train!
Chaz Bundick has got some serious goodness going on in this new track released on his Soundcloud 6 days ago. Its like a psychedelic slow jam with jazz-infused undertones, and we're digging it.
In fact, I've played it three times today in the office, I can get pretty annoying with the ol': "I LOVE this song! Ugh, I NEED to hear it again!" attitude, HOWEVER, I'm pretty sure they're grooving along with me with this one, a sure sign of a playlist keeper. So crank this and enjoy its kickback vibe, funky but cool musicality, and gorgeous vocals.
BANG BANG. No ladies, get your heads outta the gutter, I am not talking about what we all wanna do to this man (psh!!!) However, can we please just take a minute to appreciate this wonderful, wonderful, WONDERFUL bathroom we stumbled upon at San Diego's FABULOUS new hot spot Bang Bang?? We heard distant tales of this mystical washroom, so we sent our scouts out to see if it was real, IT IS. So in this rad joint where we found AMAZING music with some of the best dance acts in the world, delicious grub, and then, when you go to freshen up, ya' get THIS. ::fans self:: I mean.......
We are LOVING this native LA 3-pack of BABES called Haim. We first heard them a few months back and they have remained on our playlist here since then. We love their relaxed, rockstar style from their PERFECT pairing of girlie pieces with tough denim and bomber jackets, to their 90s-esque long, straight hair - reminds us of Alanis Morissette in her Jagged Little Pill days, but with a lot less anger, a lot more fun, and INSANE melodies strung together with solid lyrics and instrumentation. As if their air-tight live show and perfectly cool image isn't enough, it turns out these 3 UBER babes are SISTERS! PRETTY BADASS! Long live the girl band! Have a listen, and get ready to sing while you drive whilst car dancing!
