The Soft Moon - Insides

The Soft Moon does it so right. "Insides" has been stuck in my head for days, heck, for weeks.  The tune is a churning, dark glistening gem that will leave you wanting more (and dancing alone in your room as the drums come hurdling in - or is that just me?). The Soft Moon is a darkwave, post-punk, post-apocalyptic (as their Facebook page states) trio from San Francisco. They were founded in 2009 as a solo project of singer/songwriter Luis Vasquez.  "Insides" is a cut off their new LP, Zeroes, out on October 30th (in the US) and November 5th (in Europe) via Captured Tracks. Oh, and it's a free download too! Check it out below!

Best of Digital Dreams Fest

Last weekend I spent in Ontario’s capital, Toronto, for Digital Dreams Festival.   The inaugural two day fest was held on the Flats in Ontario Place.   The picturesque postcard view was adorned with four stages, each pumping out premium tunes that got your feet moving (one even on the beach, where the sun’s rays set into the warm sand beneath your feet).  The weather was perfect, the music was magical and the atmosphere was electric.  Below are my favourite songs from the fest.

Martin Solveig – The Night Out (A-Trak Remix) Kaskade feat. Skylar Grey - Room For Happiness (Gregori Klosman Remix) The Naked And The Famous - Young Blood (Tiesto & Hardwell Remix) Ivan Gough & Feenixpawl feat. Georgi Kay - In My Mind (Axwell Mix) Steve Aoki vs Mr. Hudson – Forever Ladi Dadi (Ken Loi Mashup) Miike Snow - Devil's Work (Dirty South Remix) Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Heads Will Roll (A-Trak Remix) Sebastian Ingrosso & Alesso – Calling (Lose My Mind) Alesso – Years Major Lazer – Get Free Kaskade ft Minday Gledhill - Eyes Kaskade vs Nicky Romero - Turn It Down Toulouse Deniz Koyu - Tung! Kaskade & Deadmau5 - I Remember (Vocal Edit)

It's Almost Summer Mix

Summer is getting close and the weather today was (and still is) beautiful - high 80's and blue skies. I loved being able to sit outside in my bathing suit and listen to some music. So I randomly decided to make a mix of some of my favourite songs of summer and sun. These songs are, to me, perpetually "summer"(plus most of them have summer or sun in their titles, but that's just an added bonus).  Listening to them makes me think of those summer sunrises, sunsets - purples, pinks, blues and oranges all intermixing to create that summer sky. Plus that summer heat comes to mind and just that feeling of...the sun on your skin, the rays sinking in...

What are some of your favourite summer songs?

Animal Collective - Summertime Clothes

Brothertiger - Summer House

Com Truise - Sundriped

Dirty Gold - California Sunrise

Washed Out - Feel It All Around

Delorean - Stay Close

Millionyoung - Hammock

Caribou - Sun
