Hey all! Alright so here’s the scoop, my interview with Nosaj Thing is being delayed. I was scheduled to interview him before his set at FYF but after some communication errors with his publicist (she wasn’t picking up her phone -____-) I am going to be doing a phone interview with him soon, and don’t worry I will still be posting it!
That being said, his set at FYF was fucking badass. I’ve always admired his musical skill, but to see it live front row and center was just unreal. All the acts that night were great, but I gotta say Nosaj Thing and Death From Above 1979 really stole the show for me.
Here is a new playlist I just made, I was going for (mostly electronic) songs with a chill vibe on this one. It’ll be good for early morning/late night driving :)

Nosaj Thing is an electronic artist similar in style to Flying Lotus. His most recognizable beat is “Aquarium,” also known as the beat Kid Cudi used for his song “Man on the Moon.”
Why am I telling you this? Good fucking question!
The reasoning behind it is that I’m getting an opportunity to interview Nosaj Thing at FYF Fest this Saturday. It is for my college’s newspaper, however I will also be posting some (or perhaps all of it) on this blog as well :)
Pretty tits, right? Hell yeah!
So stay tuned for a Nosaj Thing interview update, that is all :)
I am clearing my room so I can move away to college and I came across CDs that are either new, old, or meant to be shared. A lot of these artists deserve recognition and a lot of them deserved the recognition they got. The most interesting ones that you guys should check out are:
Last weekend was one of many epic weekends. So much music filled the air for me and day and night was concert after concert. I will explain in 3…2…1…

The Sounds gave a memorable show at the US Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach. However, the crowd epically SUCKED. Many didn’t even know who The Sounds were but continued to push the audience around. But Maja Ivaarson is one sexy woman I will say that. Oh yeah, did I mention that a girl was shoving her ass sideways so that I wouldn’t get in the way? What is the problem if I’m next to you. Fucking bitch. Die.

I saw Katy Perry at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles! I’m not even into that type of music, but Katy Perry puts on a mean show. To be honest, her music is catchy even though the songs are about the craziest things. She is a terrific entertainer and I would love to see her again.

My late afternoon was reserved for Surfer Blood and MGMT at the US Open of Surfing. Surfer Blood was greatly under-appreciated and the crowd wanted them out. I loved them and I felt that they should have had more respect since they are a beach-rock genre. MGMT was also great too. It was nice to hear them, and their songs were quite an ear-full. It was a great end to the US Open.
Round two! After MGMT, I went to Hard Summer in Los Angeles. I arrived late (9 pm) and caught the last part of Ratatat. I wished I saw there entire show because the bit I was able to see was great. After that, I watched Chromeo and Duck Sauce. Both were great shows, and Duck Sauce was the most dancable band of the night. However, Skrillex stole my heart. All and all, it was a great experience.
