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...

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...

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...

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...

Tunesday with David Haller

After being unapologetically engrossed in FX's new Marvel show, Legion, we decided there was no better inspiration for this Tunesday than the Legion soundtrack, which was shaped by music itself, Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon. "The Dark Side of the Moon was sort of the sound of schizophrenia, the sound of mental illness in the ’70s. So why not use that as the touchstone for what the sound of this score might be?" With original music by Jeff Russo (which deserves its own post) as a driving force for "auditory hallucinations," viewers are transported down the rabbit hole and into the minds of every intricately complex character as they develop from chapters 1 to 8. The supplied music then acts as a catalyst, helping...
