Lightning in a bottle is hands down my favorite festival, so I absolutely CAN NOT wait to go again this coming Memorial Day weekend May 21st-25th, 2015. Check out our post from last year to catch the artist playlist with AudioMolly favorites Gramatik, Amon Tobin, Polish Ambassador, What So Not, Kraddy, Jumpsuit Records, Sweater Beats, Desert Dwellers, Slow Magic, tons of other Do Lab exquisite picks and the broad variety headliners; Moby, Phantogram, Baaur, Little Dragon and Beats Antique just to name a few. I’m beyond excited to find out what they have planned for this year’s lineup, stay tuned and check out www.lightninginabottle.org for tickets, info and location.
More of that delicious deep rumbling timpani bass from Purity Ring. They didn’t forget the trap vibe, hooray! Slightly less haunting lyrics than usual, but solid on beautiful vocals, nonetheless. I like the harmonies at 2:00 and I’m really hoping for a full album soon.
Okay, Rolling Up from Kick the Habit. This one starts off simple and just when you think you’re in the clear it busts your ghost with some high, glitchy lasers then gets really refreshing at 1:50. These guys have so many great tracks; their Ming & Mr. Black remix is killing me. Can not stop listening. These guys are huge I tell you, huuuuuuge.
Today was cloudy and gloomy… I freakin LOVED every freakin SECOND of it. To celebrate, I listened to this seductive mellow jam right here. I love the floating haunting vocals with dreamy synths that just take you away… so much so, that at about 2:51 I start to feel like I’m getting hypnotized by that beautiful swell of sound. Seekae’s remix doesn’t drift too far from the original (which is a dark gorgeousness in and of itself) but I like this twist on it… kinda adds a slower Trentmoller feel. Exquisite!!
And the original!
Oh bebe… this is just right! I’m on a gritty kick recently and this song hits the spot. I was hesitant at first with the house-y intro but you gotta just wait for the drop because you NEVER KNOW RIGHT?!?! I was glad I waited on this one because I am super digging the hard raunchiness, as it was very welcome after the techno-esque beginning. Def think it’s a great build with a good switch up for sound. 2:15 to the second drop has a Daft Punk (Tron soundtrack) feel to me which I think is a nice touch. One thing that could add to it would be to play with the second drop a little more, add in some fresh sounds, samples or effects. Overall, it’s a real good song to jam out to and will absolutely get you hooked! Excited to see what these guys come up with next!!
