Shit I’d Marry: Mondo Boys’ WEIRD SUMMER III Mix

22 08 2011

Shit I love so much that yeah, I would marry it.

Every summer for the past three summers, the amazing “NY/LA mixtape/sound collage collaborative” that is the Mondo Boys have released an installment of their WEIRD SUMMER series.

The WEIRD SUMMER mixes are probably the best thing of all time in terms of summery mixes, and I look forward to seeing them posted every year on Aquarium Drunkard. This year’s mix is, of course, the perfect blend of surf-soaked songs, vintage jams and that quintessential glint of buzz from the likes of White Fence, Julian Lynch, The Fresh & Onlys, Wild Nothing and more.

It’s up for download now on Aquarium Drunkard and on the Mondo Boys’ site,
so get that shit quick and never forget, SUMMER ONLY ENDS IF YOU LET IT. ♥





New Monster Rally, “Island On Fire”.

11 04 2011

Gah! I’m truly excited cause my friends at Bad Panda sent over this lovely new track from your girl’s #1, Monster Rally. This shoulder shimmying new little jam swings from a little dreamy tropical sway to some mariachi-reminiscent beats that could be heard in the park on any sunny day in Los Angeles into that full beach party that MR has down so pat.

Upon the realization that I can’t afford to go out of town this month, and that it’s fucking cloudy today, I just want to curl up in this tune until summer comes, hopefully with some new job or something so I can escape to a far away beach & finally throw that party MR is constantly egging me on to throw.

One day, friends, one day.


Monster Rally : Island On Fire

EDITOR’S NOTE: Okay, ok. The clouds seem to be breaking up. Sorry I’m a doomsdayist in the morning when I should be like “It’s just a marine layer, Marissa. No need to kill urself.”





SORRY IT’S STILL SNOWING & SHIT.

DOES THE BEACH IN FEBRUARY.

☼ Click this shit. Download now. Warm up, baby. ☼

MOVE 2 CALIFORNIA, I HEAR YOU’LL HAVE A BETTER TIME.

I’ve never lived anywhere else, so I can’t be for certain, but finding myself on a beach in February seems a hell of a lot more enjoyable than dealing with most of the shit I’ve been reading on Twitter about the stunts ya’alls weather pulls.

This mix is to rub it in.
LOL JK.
Kinda.

Christmas Songs & Questions.

13 12 2010

I HAVE A VERY IMPORTANT QUESTION FOR EVERYONE.
THIS IS IMPORTANT, LISTEN UP.
OK.

What modern-classic Christmas Album/Song
is undoubtedly very important to just about every girl?

Just like, EVERY GIRL LOVES IT & WE ALL KNOW IT.

Please answer in the comments section because this is an on-going argument in our home and I only have one answer so far that Dudefriend says I “totally sold it” & something about how I’m “sandbagging” him. He just doesn’t fucking know women and how much they love singing…
[FILL THIS IN, WITH THE RIGHT ANSWER].

I will check my comments when I get home from work
& if you failed me, I will be like, mad disappointed in your appraisals
of women, the 90’s & modern-day classic carols.

On that note, I will share with you this dope holiday BAnanas Symphony mp3 that I got last week. I really like it, even though it’s mistakable for something Animal Collective left on a cutting room floor somewhere. Not that I can be surprised and not that I don’t dig it. Animal Collective has been one of everyone’s favorite bands since 2005, so you’re bound to see that influence bleed into new bands. This seasonal jam is super crunchy, I love it and it’s definitely been making it’s rounds on my xmas playlist ever since we got our tree up.


BAnanas Symphony’s HOlidaze.

So come on out & kick off the holiday season with us! xo :)





My Contribution To The Music Community On All Hallow’s Eve.

31 10 2010

Yesterday, I threw a Tweet out there like,
“Yo, what horror film should I watch on Netflix Watch Instantly?”
The answer I got was Suspiria (thanks dude), which is cool because I’d been wanting to watch it (I’m pretty intrigued by anything European from the 60’s & 70’s) so then you know, we watched it.

The film itself, like the plot & story, did not particularly scare me.
But the visual & musical stylings of this film are KILLER.

Like, this soundtrack by Goblin is fucking BEGGING
to be sampled & used for Witch House #1 hit sensations.

I mean, I think.
I don’t know if have listened to much Witch House. :oops:
But I mean, if the term “Witch House” is any indication,
I think I just fucking next leveled some bitches.

But this soundtrack is a game changer 4 all music lovers!
Especially for spooky Sundays such as this,
you need to revolutionize ur witch home.

To be totally honest, if I had any sort of musical talent,
I would have kept this shit to myself & then next year
BLOWN ALL YOUR MINDS OUT OF MORGAN FREEMAN’S UNIVERSE!!!

But, I don’t have a stitch of musical skill,
so now I’m leaving it up to you guys
to make this into something awesome.

Don’t fucking let me down.

PS. I expect to be thanked in ur album sleeve, when you make this masterpiece. Also, a picture of me in a bikini would be great too. Just looking 2 expand my personal brand, thnx in advance covens.

Download the album here
via some link I tracked down because I’m an Aughty girl.





Dead Gaze’s “B. Emanuel Can’t Come Close Enough”.

18 10 2010


Dead Gaze: B. Emanuel Can’t Come Close Enough.

Dude, like, gonna be real right now and say I’m pretty disappointed in myself for not posting this sooner. It’s such a pretty little gem that you all need in your lives.

My boy, Cole of Dead Gaze, has this new 7″ coming out on Fire Talk and he’s a mad talented dude. Not only is he talented (um, where were you on “This Big World” dawg?) but he’s also a really sweet dude, which in my books means a lot. I love talented people with good hearts. Always rootin’ 4 ‘em. I also am always rooting for bros with comfy t-shirts, which Dead Gaze has. I know this cause,
I’m wearing it right now. #booyuh

See the wrinkles?
That’s cause I wore it out last night
& then got mad comfy in it today.
It’s versatile!
Fashionable yet mad perfz 4 chillin’!

PREORDER DEAD GAZE’S
“TAKE ME HOME OR I DIE ALONE”
RIGHT HURRRR.
