2014 Wrap-Up: Top Albums – Honorable Mention

I wouldn’t say 2014 was a down year for albums, but aside from the top 10, many 2014 releases probably wouldn’t have bested last year’s top albums. Read below for my Honorable Mention releases aka albums/EPs that were somewhere near the top 50, but I just couldn’t rank. Duck Sauce – Quack (Amazon) There wasn’t […]

FESTIVALIST ’12: Music Midtown Playlists

In preparation for Music Midtown 2012, I opted for streaming playlists instead of compiling downloadable mixtapes (UPDATE: Here is a download anyways). This seemed to make the most sense for 2 reasons: a) Most of you probably already have these songs, b) I’m curious what your go-to streaming playlist service is. While Spotify can’t legally […]

Girl Talk: Hangout Music Festival Interview

One of my new found friends who writes for Paste, Consequence of Sound and other music outlets was able to interview Girl Talk at Hangout Music Festival.

New Mixtape: Hangout Fest 2K11

Here it is. 3 playlists featuring bands from all three days of the upcoming festival in Gulf Shores, AL. This obvsiously isn’t all the music you’ll hear, but hopefully it will be a lot of it. I could have made a disc of just Black Keys and Cee-Lo tracks, but tried to go for a […]

Festivalist ’11: Hangout Out Music Festival Preview

Now that the duplex (with a pool!) has been secured, tickets have been purchased, vacation days approved and most of the artists have been announced, its time to breakdown this year’s Hangout Music Fest. Not only is it the 2nd year for this unique festival, its even bigger than 2010’s inagural event. An air conditioned […]
