Sassy Preview: Chet Faker

I’ve been a huge Chet Faker fanboy since the first time I saw him at Sasquatch. I’m a Sasquatch fanboy in general but guess what.. Chet is playing Sasquatch again! Not surprisingly hes on a bigger stage and the hype train is rolling out of the station folks so all aboard.

The Cocktail Hour ft. Viceroy

I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve featured Viceroy on the Cocktail Hour. But lets face it, hes the embodiment of feel good Friday music. He’s Mr. SummertimeAllTheTime, baby. An inspiration in the winter time but when you get to cut out work early for a weekend getaway and the sun is shining then his flavor of tropical grooves is just what you’re looking for to drive off into the sunset.

Happy Friday, everybody!

DJ Soo- That’s My Jam

This mix is made of sunshine and smiles 🙂

I first heard this mix one lazy afternoon at Burning Man 2015. I was relaxing up in a 200 square foot hammock with a couple friends when someone put this mix on for our free caesar bar nearby.

This was also the day I got to know Emily. Emily and I camped together at Burning Man but I’ve always connected best with people over music and I learned that Emily was the same. We laid there in the shade with a slight breeze and just talked about music. Chatted about her experience at sound engineering school and her favorite local artists. We reminisced about our favorite recent shows and how we likely shared a mosh pit or two in the day.

Emily and I smiled with every new song in this mix. “oh I love this song.. oh this takes me back.. oh this track is so timeless”

Emily was tragically taken from us in a car accident last month and this mix is my closest connection to her. It is a perfect way for me to remember her. This mix will make you dance, this mix will make you smile, and I hope it will help you remember Emily how I do. Smiling and laughing in a big hammock at Burning Man.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra – Can’t Keep Checking My Phone

Sometimes you come across a drop everything and blog song. This one just got immediately stuck in my head so I wanted to share.

Enjoy these funky guitar licks and try to keep yourself from dancing too hard.

Marcus Marr & Chet Faker – Birthday Card

Because I’m contractually obligated to post anything Chet Faker comes within 3 feet of. Lucky for you, once he got within 3 feet of this Marcus Marr beat he started singing. Enjoy.

Tame Impala – The Less I Know The Better [VIDEO]

Simple put, this video is just as weird as you expected it to be. And you’ll love it just as much as you’d expect as well. Tame Impala has my vote for album of the year. Drift away into the weird.
