Tunesday with The Bold Type

Despite the constant intent to be open-minded in every aspect of the my life, I admit that I am human and, at times, fall short. Such was the case with The Bold Type. I am not sure if it is because I worked in the magazine industry for years and believe it is not always portrayed in entertainment accurately. Or, perhaps, it was because of my sheer skepticism that a show based off millennial best friends in NYC who work at a magazine centered around sex and fashion could be anything but a superficial attempt to reach a demographic without challenging it.   It was a happy surprise that these negative ideas about the show were completely inaccurate. I happily admit...

Tunesday: a love letter to Deacon Frey

The Eagles have been a long-standing favorite band of mine, and last year, we lost a true rock n’ roll revolutionary with Glenn Frey’s passing. When the time came last Saturday at the Classic East festival, his son, Deacon, stepped in and swept me away. Deacon, Let me get right down to it: I wanna sleep with you in the desert night. At a time when I feel music has become spoiled by superficial nonsense, you appeared like a white knight, flanked by your experienced elders, to save the day. You knew the size of your father’s shoes when you agreed to sing with the band, and you honored him on stage- filling those shoes as if they were made for you too. You embody the...

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...
