Recently, we interviewed rising artist, Jakob Danger and his band mates Chris and Enzo Malaspina, at VLHS in Pomona. With their ability to cover a variety of genres within their composition of 8 songs, any listener is sure to find something they love. The band is currently on tour with Dog Party and are in the process of making new music for their eager audience. To find out a little bit more about this ‘barely legal’ trio (shout out to whoever gets that reference) from Oakland, listen to our interview below that touches on everything from The Strokes to pancakes and waffles.
This playlist is more rocking out and enjoying life. Some old some new. Classic bands like Kings of Leon, The Strokes and The Killers with a mix of newer rock bands like Catfish and the Bottlemen, Drowners and Twin Peaks. If you like the sound of that I hope this playlist doesn’t fail you.
Playlist 2 is more indie pop music and good vibes all around. Definitely the best one to play around your friends. If you’re a fan of Years and Years, BØRNS, LANY, or The 1975 this mix is perfect for you.
Playlist 3 is very chill and laid back. Perfect for a relaxing beach day or something to play in the background while reading a book. If you enjoy Beach Fossils, Wild Nothing, DIIV and Sunflower Bean this playlist is your soulmate.
I really enjoyed making these playlist so I hope you love them as well!
Arguably the best thing to come out of Canada is singer-songwriter, Mac DeMarco. While some consider his music ‘slacker rock,’ in reality, he is a pretty busy musician touring around the world all while effortlessly making fans happy. DeMarco’s tunes ooze carefree summer happiness. It might not be prime radio play music but Mac has amassed a large following that continues to grow with every yodel he belts. Whether you want to listen to laid back dreamy guitar pop or upbeat jams, you’ll be able to find it in Mac Demarco.
The crowd, although calm and serene throughout the opening songs, became more and more ecstatic as the set progressed–seemingly along with the vivacious energy Mac and his band emitted. The Greek Theatre’s 8,500 seats are nearly all filled, and nearly everyone is out of their seats, swaying along with Mac, as he danced and (pardon the overused cliché) ‘became one with the crowd.’ His infectious whimsical personality instantaneously forged a bond between him and all those who watched–everyone felt at ease with one another. While unpredictable, Demarco’s charm and performance is like no other and is a must-see for anyone looking to have a good time. CAUTION *chill vibes are in your near future*
