Given the series of tumultuous world events that was 2016, I think we can all collectively agree that it’s been one helluva year–and we’re more than ready to turn over a new leaf. Luckily, New Year’s Eve gives us an excuse to do just that. For one night, let’s kick back with a few solid beers, listen to some carefree jams and look forward to a fresh start with our best friends. Put on your party pants, get thee to your house party or watering hole of choice and let loose. Happy New Year from all of us here at PorchDrinking.com!
Back in May, I was hit by two new songs that were so fun and noisy, I fell in immediate love. Tegan & Sara’s Boyfriend (and really the whole album that it comes off of) is pure, unabashed pop perfection that had me bouncing up and down. It’s like a Patrick Nagel painting coming to life (for people who don’t know who that is, it’s like if Adult Swim’s Moonbeam City hadn’t been a disappointment.) On the flip side of that was Tyler Glen’s Trash, a middle-finger salute to the Mormon Church. While the song is dark and full of angst and reverb, it’s layering of sound hit me in the exact same way as Boyfriend — a bunch of noisy pieces that add up to a fun whole in a way that normal band instruments just can’t capture. After eating up all my phone’s data playing them on Youtube while I drove, I decided to capture this wall-of-noise sound I wanted for my noisy summer.
Take a leap of faith and hop on into our Easter Bunny playlist. I’m sure you’ll be jumping for joy after listening to this collection of songs about hopping, jumping and leaping. Happy Easter everyone!
