PorchDrinking Playlist | Noisy Summer

June 28, 2016 |

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.

It took three days of looking into criminal minds before I began to consider moving into a cave and never speaking to anyone again… because everyone in the world is terrible.

PorchDrinking Playlist | Covering The Beatles

July 21, 2015 |

What does a music nerd need more than anything? Boom! A 99₵ three month subscription to Spotify Premium. Legal access to tons of your favorite artists. Who wouldn’t want that?! Insert my credit card number, pay my 99₵, buy a $299 bluetooth speaker and we are raring to go. Spotify Premium has it all — or does it? Wait a minute, where is Tool, Prince, Garth and Taylor (oh wait, we know where she is, maybe we are not looking) and, of course, The Beatles?
