Couldn't think of a better song to share today! #Lovewins
Have you heard of Cayucas? They had that great Indie Rock track "Highschool Lover" a few years back. Well folks they're back with their sophomore album Dancing at the Blue Lagoon. In a bit of exciting news, and to the average reader potentially a irrelevant factoid, Cayucas consists of twin brothers Ben and Zach Yudin. Why is this exciting? Because we here at F&F are also twins! Which means that when we eventually interview the band we are going to hit it off.. because twins get other twins.
Okay, back to business! The new album is very charming and the perfect playlist for a summer drive with the sunroof open, preferably some time around dusk. The records lead single is Moony Eyed Walrus, but after taking a deeper dive the track that stood out to me the most was Big Winter Jacket. After listning to it I felt like I was wear a nice cozy winter jacket. Its sound was very epic but inclusive at the same time leving me feeling comforted, like have a winter jacket would in the cold.
If you want to catch these guys live you are in luck! They are playing all summer long in a club near you, Check out their website for more details.
The Danish are coming.. The Danish are coming (and one American)!! And they are bringing their Girl Crushes with them. When you listen to Alternative Rock band New Politics new single "Girl Crush" for the first time I am willing to bet a few things go through your head within a few seconds. First "well that's a sick little beat".. Second "Did David just say "I still can't get over the sex we had."" last, and certainly not least important "his girl did what to another girl?"
F&F has had the pleasure of hanging out with New Politics (See Here) and we can tell you from personal experiences they are a super fun, nice, and down to earth group of guys. It's nice to see that they are not taking themselves too seriously on their highly anticipated sophomore album. But without sounding too judgy, something about the lyrics to this track are .. well.. are a little over the top. Who is this song for? In other words who is supposed to relate to it? We can't help but think about their fan base ,who from our experience, are young women, is it for them? Can't see how thats possible.
Don't get us wrong we like the track as a whole, but something about it doesn't settle right. Are we crazy? We would love for you to join the conversation on twitter using the hashtag #fandfpresents
