Fourth of July Fashion
by Brooklyn Brown-Sater - 0

Fourth of July fashion can be tricky when you are trying to be patriotic and chic. There is always someone who take the red, white, and blue theme a bit to literal, leaving them looking tacky not classy. If you want to be fashion forward and budget friendly at the cookout,we have looks picked out for you from four easily accessible and affordable stores! The great thing about these suggestions is that they can be worn year round, so that helps to justify the purchase of a new outfit!

Mumford and Sons - "The Wolf" Bonnaroo Experience
by Julia Merryman - 0

THE WOLF. A song from Mumford and Sons that we already know and love. What makes it even better is that the official video is here, but it isn't exactly what we were expecting. Mumford decided to take it a step further and use it to give an inside look at parts of fantastic and fun experiences over their 48 hours spent at Bonnaroo. 

Members of this world-renowned band donned costumes and blended in with the eclectic variety of concert goers. Director Marcus Haney (No Cameras Allowed) joined and caught the fun and even incorporated footage from their insane headlining Saturday night performance. The result is honestly magical. Take a look at 48 hours of Bonnaroo with Mumford and Sons.

Discover: ON AN ON "Icon Love" and New Album
by Julia Merryman - 0

Mark your calendars for July 24th, the day that ON AN ON's new album is due. To give a little taste of what's to come, their latest released song off their new album is below. And The Wave Has Two Sides, produced by none other than Joe Chiccarelli (Spoon, White Stripes, The Shins, My Morning Jacket), is going to be tight and the band is celebrating it with a North American tour (dates below).

A heartfelt slightly cheesy tale of chasing after your true love, ON AN ON's song "It's Not Over" will make your heart warm and is one of our personal favorites off the new album. It follows a couple that had to sadly say goodbye and how they couldn’t stay away. Rightfully on the list of Stereogum's "5 Best Videos Of The Week" and on Vimeo's "Staff List," the couple depicted in the video are individually running through rain and shine, through buildings, and jumping over multiple items making for a wildly entertaining video. It’s a great backdrop for the song I’ve personally had on repeat these past few days.

Discover: Matt Pond PA "Take Me With You"
by Julia Merryman - 0

Matt Pond PA is back with their TENTH studio album! The band amazingly funded their new album, The State of Gold, entirely from a crowd-sourced Pledge campaign that ended up raising significantly more money than expected! Originally from Philadelphia (hence the PA tacked onto the end of their name), but now based in New York, Matt Pond PA have gained quite a cult following and their music has been featured on well-known outlets such as The OC and even in Starbucks commercials. 
Matt Pond PA songs have a way of reminding the listener to notice the beauty in the things often overlooked, which serves as a kind of metaphor for the band itself.
One of the tracks off the new record, "Take Me With You," is a great addition for your 4th of July playlist! It represents the little wild things of life and watching makes you yearn for a summer adventure that’s full of surprises. The fun vocals and relatable meaning will have you bobbing and singing along within seconds.
