At least I hope not, because otherwise I would be dangerously close to overdosing on Flume. This guy is giving me all sorts of pleasure right now, and are dreamily floating me into a weekend of hazy days and lazy nights. Hope you enjoy this "best of mix" of Flume one of Ladywoods Coachella highlights. My personal favourite bit starts around 12:56 with some fluttery happy reggae-ish goodness. -C
It seems like the kind of day when we could all use a little bit of a step down-something chill and soothing and calming with a touch of mystery. Thanks to the musical recommendations of Shimms we have a track by the elusive Zhu who has finally dropped his Nightday EP. The six-track collection includes the previously-released “Superfriends,” “Faded” and “Paradise Awaits” along with new tracks “The One,” “Stay Closer” and, our featured track, “Cocaine Model.” Zhu’s vocals appear front and center on “Cocaine Model,” in which the Cali artist serenades the listener with a sexy R&B narrative. Even though we still don't know who Zhu is (he's like the daft punk of the emerging electro dj world) we can’t help but feel like we know him a little bit more after hearing this electro-soul gem. Give “Cocaine Model” a listen below. Thanks to S for the tip!!
I have the solution to cure your PCD (post Coachella depression) my friends. All you have to do is follow these simple steps and your worrisome ways will be gone in the blink of a sand filled eye.
1). Keep your Coachella bracelet on as long as possible so every person who interacts with you has a reason to ask you about it
2). Wear nothing but crop tops and high waisted shorts. See-through shirts and floppy hats also fit the bill.
3). Start drinking at about 10am every day. If you were camping feel free to keep your beer in a non-refrigerated location because a luke warm beer will bring you back to that happy place.
4). Just yell Happy Coachella all the time; in the shower, walking down the street and to the neighbour's dog. It makes everyone feel great.
5). Make sure what happened at Coachella takes over 95% of what you say to people. Talk about it so much that friends who weren't there don't want to hang out anymore. Those friends just don't get it anyways so fuck 'em.
6). Make random meeting spots for friends in the streets instead of in conventional bars or stores. Tell them "meet me at the bear statue on 10th street" or "find the red flag above the old renaissance building." It's so so so fun to search for hours and find your friends only sometimes.
7). Pick up smoking and talk so loudly that you lose your voice immediately. All who left Coachella with crisp vocal chords did not do it right.
8). Listen to your favourite Coachella tracks over and over and over and over again.
Here are some photos and musical highlights from our trip. My personal favourites were Rudimental, ZZ Ward, Flume, Banks, Disclosure, Nas, HAIM, the Knife, Kid Cudi. Chromeo, and Pharrall. There was magic in the air of that beautiful place and we once again feel blessed to have experienced it all. If you don't want to hear these songs because they aren't the freshest things on the streets then I say to you "shut your dirty little mouth" Happy Coachella!! -Rayray
