Now Playing: Phoenix

Last week Phoenix released the first act of a 4 part mini-documentary titled, INITIALS P.H.O.E.N.I.X. Directed by Guillaume Delaperriere, each video shows the creative process behind their most recent album Bankrupt! Fun fact! Phoenix played today at Governors Ball in New York, although we were not in attendance we hope to catch them on the west coast at Fyf Fest. You can now watch the entire documentary below!

Now Playing: Forestears

Forestears

If you were to combine the sounds of Grizzly Bear and Beirut your outcome would be Forestears! Their sound is incredible and it’s been my jam commuting to and from work for the past week.  I can’t even tell you what genre their music falls under except for the “THEY’RE REALLY GOOD, JUST TRUST ME” genre. This creative bunch comes from Brighton and keeps us on the other side of the pond wanting more. Big things are in store for these guys, I’m sure of it. Check out their video for their song Smoulder House below.

Music Monday: Jake Bugg Concert

 

This was not our first time seeing the very talented Jake Bugg. We caught a bit of his set at Coachella this past year and decided that when he came to LA next, we will be there. So eventually he did come to LA to play a show at the Fonda Theatre and we….. were NOT there. He was SOLD OUT. (the worst words to hear as avid concert goers.) We were so convinced that we were going to his next show and we were a little gutted when we didn’t. Jake Bugg was sold out and selling out. Soooo we didn’t get to see him at the Fonda, but we saw him this past friday at the Wiltern and it was well worth the wait. We sang, we danced, played some air guitar and threw up two fingers. It was a great way to spend our Friday night.

Are You In the Band? “No”

are you with the band?

Creative differences, secret love affair, or following your dream to be a wizard…we don’t know why bands breakup, we have no idea what it takes to be in a band but we have a list of musicians that we are glad went solo. Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do and if that means you gotta march to the beat of your own drum (literally and figuritavely) then DO IT! Imagine this, the M. Sisters in a band (dibs on the tambourine {Kenzie}) we would be the BEST BAND EVER (most definitely not). There would be some serious head banging, killer dance routines, and a lot of saxophone solos. Sounds awesome, am I right??? For business inquiries you are free to email us. Hope everyone is having an awesome #MusicMonday! ROCK ON PEOPLE!!

Happy Birthday Mom.

“Mom, why don’t you be a professional singer?” I remember asking my mom this. Every night before bed, I listened to my mom sing to us. Song after song she would sing, waiting patiently for her kids to stop tossing and turning. I was sure my mom had the most beautiful voice in the world so why didn’t she sing for other people, why did she only sing for us? Now I understand, she’s our Mom. She sings to comfort her children, fight off their nightmares, and share the love in her heart. Her lullabies are something us kids will cherish forever. Aside from the sweet words she used to sing, now we are normally serenaded with song choices from Ed Sheeran, T- Pain, half of the top 100 pop songs, and some songs she just makes up on the spot. We love you Mom, keep on being the rockstar we all know you to be.

No, your calendar is not wrong it IS in fact Tuesday. Yesterday we celebrated our Music Monday by going to the Grammy Museum and FINALLY seeing the Ringo: Peace & Love exhibit. The Grammy Museum is a very interactive place and we LOVE that. We spent most of our time playing with the instruments, roaming the museum and the memorabilia as well as  listening to some great music. Without giving too much away the museum has so many great things. They dip into every aspect of music from how it’s made, who wrote it, who performed it, and who wore it. This museum has four levels of music history well worth seeing. We ended our tour with a well overdue visit to the Ringo: Peace & Love exhibit. First in the exhibit is a short film with clips from Ringo’s home life as well as his career (spoiler alert) many cameo’s by the Beatles. There are drum kits all over this place and two of them you can actually play and guess what, Ringo is there to teach you! On video nonetheless but still freaking exciting! Ringo Starr teaches you three types of beats, the same techniques he used to teach his son Zak who has been drumming for The Who since 1996. If it isn’t enough that you get to sit down and play on a replica of Ringo’s Black Oyster Pearl drum kit, you can also sing along with the Beatles in the Yellow Submarine Karaoke Booth! You had me at karaoke… The Grammy Museum was such a great way to spend our Music Monday hope everyone enjoyed their Monday!
