AWOPBAMBOOM – Vol. 21
Music 4 Music People

***

From TayTay to the CrayCray, here’s what’s orbiting our musical universe this week.

*** 

Muse, “Dead Inside”

First single off of their forthcoming seventh album and it’s a jam having already topped out Mediabase and Billboard Modern Rock charts! Watch out for their album, “Drones” to be released on June 9th.

*** 

Prinzhorn Dance School, “Reign” (Shit Robot Remix)

If there’s a specific way one should enjoy electronic percussion please do tell. For now, grab your headset and turn it up. You’re bound to feel a loopy, trance effect.

*** 

Au.Ra, “Sun”

Au.Ra is an English music duo making splashes in the industry right now. All aboard before they hit it off and you’re a bandwagoner.

 ***

Heartless Bastards, “Gates of Dawn”

Lead singer Erika Wennerstrom had us at her first growl…

***

Taylor Swift, “Bad Blood” (ft. Kendrick Lamar)

Allegedly Taylor has been dropping hints that this song addresses an ongoing celeb feud with Katy Perry. Well, her badass moves, feature with rapper Kendrick Lamar, and army of supermodels may faze Katy Perry but Taylor Swift will always be the innocent teen with a broken heart in our eyes.

***

Electric Light Orchestra, “Don’t Bring Me Down”

A local radio station recently played this 1979 classic. We couldn’t help but turn this baby up and sing our lungs out. Problem was the lyric is not “Bruce,” it is “Grooos.”

Festival Spotlight

Outside Lands

Most music festivals feature the best of the music industry but not much else. You’re either overpaying for food or bringing your own to throw on the grill. With Outside Lands, you get both! Not only do they feature Elton John, Mumford & Sons, and Kendrick Lamar on their festival lineup but they also feature Asian, Mexican, and downright original cuisine on their menu lineup. If you’re in the bay area, well you know, check it out!

When: August 7-9, 2015
