Tunesday with Sammy Brue

Sometimes on a gloomy day like today, instead of listening to bubbly “sunny” music, I let the mood wash over and enjoy taking the opportunity to listen to a more weather-reflective kind of tune (that is not in any way a negative). As with many of our Tunesdays, I am captivated by a random song or voice- often forgetting how I ever came to hear them in the first place. Today’s is no different. Sammy Brue is a 15-year-old with a distinct sound, and loads of potential. Despite not necessarily having anything earth-shatteringly unique about his sound, he seems to have mastered it, placing him on par with many of today’s more experienced alternative-folk musicians. The first song of his I heard was...

Friday Feels

It’s taken me a while to truly process and understand this, but I’m ready for some life changes! I am now going to be very intentional about the food I eat and the effects it has on my body. I am on a mission: eat to live and not live to eat.  I feel I have been neglecting my body for years and cannot wait to share my journey with you! Get ready for some yummy recipes and any tips I gather along the way. My body has been trying to tell me things for years and I’m finally ready to listen. Xx G...

Tunesday with Seavera

Whoever was manning the Starbucks playlist at the Fort Lauderdale Airport at 6 am yesterday, was on point. I was sleepy and grumpy and both of those feelings only grew stronger when I saw the size of the Starbucks line… full of other zombies waiting for their boosts of energy. Suddenly, a sound began to captivate me, completely erasing any negative emotions I had previously held. I couldn’t quite place the voice, but the sound had an extremely familiar quality, and a calming presence in my head. It felt like Birdy meets Haim. Like Bon Iver and Regina Spektor had a love child who is somehow also related to Ed Sheeran. Thank goodness for Shazam, because now I know who that enthralling sound...

Thursday Thoughts 4:44

I understand that I have limited expertise in the matter of Rap, but I have a lot of feelings about Jay-Z’s new album, 4:44, and today’s post is my exploration of those feelings. There are several things about this album that make it a one of a kind, revolutionary release. Jay-Z is known for being particularly private, especially in respect to his home-life, her highness, Queen Beyonce, and any rumored infidelity on his part. He addresses the incident-gone-viral when Solange assaulted him, and even more surprisingly, also addresses the events surrounding it- relating to said affairs. In an uncharted move for someone in the usually macho-centric genre, the premier track, “Kill Jay Z”, is a direct assessment and ultimate vulnerable admonition of how egos can...

Last Minute Look // 4th of July

As symbolic as the American flag is, stylish it is not. Each year, the 4th of July brings out some of the worst flag inspired outfits ever, and this faux pas is so very avoidable. It IS possible to rep the red, white and blue, without looking kitschy. Below is a last minute look for any backyard bbq this weekend, and some easy no-fail rules to follow. In my opinion, white is the hardest color to wear since: a) it is expansive b) doesn't photograph well in bright sunlight. A headband, bandana or sunnies are perfect ways to get white in. Since denim screams americana, it is the perfect blue piece and likely already in your closet. Even though red doesn't look great on every skin tone, combining it with white and blue usually...

Tunesdays with Benjamin Booker

Released June 2, Benjamin Booker’s second album, Witness, packs a major punch. Embracing the idea that the personal is political, he doesn’t waste any time before analyzing his part as a citizen in the current social climate. The title track is “not a praise song; it’s a piano-pounding hymn for Black Lives Matter that has Mr. Booker singing, with furious mockery, ‘See we thought that we saw that he had a gun/Thought that it looked like he started to run.’”  NYT It is extremely evident that Booker has been influenced by punk, rock and blues. The first album he said to have purchased, at around 13, was Elephant by The White Stripes. Their unique use of instruments and non-traditional sounds- reminiscent...

Tunesday for Manchester

This past weekend was filled with music all over the world. Team Twinseperable was lucky enough to score lobbyist passes to Gov Ball, resulting in a lovely few days of Don Julio cocktails and musical sets to satisfy even the most discerning palates (thanks Jenn Kaytin). However, sometimes music is about something bigger. This past Sunday was also the Manchester Benefit concert. After the incredible time we had on Randall’s Island, we made sure to watch the Benefit in its entirety once we returned to our HQ, and are dedicating this Tunesday to Manchester. The attack at Ariana Grande’s concert on May 22 was extremely well planned, targeting a select group of people and sending a loud message. It was no coincidence that...

Tunesday for Gregg Allman

Today's Tunesday is in honor of, and respect for, Southern Rock pioneer, Gregg Allman, who passed away at 69 on May 27. He was a creator. He was a pioneer. He will always be a legend. Team Twinseperable has always been a fan of The Allman Brothers. We even published a post over 2 years ago, sharing why they never fail to cheer us up on gloomy days. With Duane's passing in the 70's...

Havana Highlights

Havana_Cuba_3
  Recently, we took an amazing cruise to Havana, Cuba on Norwegian Sky*. Despite our pre-cruise excitement, we didn’t realize how powerful the experience would be until we were there. It is incredibly liberating to completely unplug for a week. Having to dust off our rusty Spanish vocabularies only added to the richness of the experience. Carefully choosing our words as we tried to speak Spanish as much as possible was both challenging and rewarding. Stepping off the ship and into Old Havana was like walking in a dream. Despite many of the building’s crumbling facades, there were moments when the light acted as a veil-- revealing glimpses of what used to be. In the middle of it all was the central square, which...

Tunesday with Harry Styles

Not generally a fan of “One Direction-esque” pop music, I was not very familiar with the specific nature of each member’s talent. Zayn has had incredibly successful hits, but at first they seemed like a desperate attempt to prove he was grown up and to overcompensate for any masculinity he felt he lost being a member of a boy band. It came as quite a shock to me then, when Harry Styles released his eponymous first album-- an album, that so clearly demonstrated his musical knowledge and passion for rock. Mr. Styles has a very long way to go if he wants to be on the same level as those I can only imagine inspired this album, a la Elton...
