[MEGA SUMMER 2014] Vol 3: Alternative Playlist

TMN-Alt-Summer2104

Summer is nearing its end, and for many of you that means school has probably already started. Just because you’re stuck in a classroom though, that doesn’t mean the summer spirit is locked away. Here at The Music Ninja, it’s our job to remind you of that tingling sensation that you get when you step outside and the sun’s rays touch your skin for the first time. Given that it’s almost Labor Day weekend, we’d like to provide you with a temporary reprieve from the daily monotony of your life and help take you back to the sweetest days of your summer. What better way to do that then to provide you with the perfect soundtrack for your weekend barbecue?

We’ve already shared two amazing playlists with you this month, starting with our illustrious Indie collection, followed by a dope selection of Hip-Hop and R&B tracks. Featured down below is probably our strangest playlist in the series. Though we call it our “Alternative” list, this collection includes a wide array of songs that didn’t quite fit into any of our other categories. Featuring everything from shimmery synth pop to pulsating future bass, in many regards this one best captures the true essence of summer, as we meld together sounds from all over the map into one lovably chaotic concoction.

We hope this series has helped you appreciate your last remaining days of summer. Prepare yourself for the final entry in our series next week, when we bring you a monstrous EDM playlist that’s guaranteed to blow you away. In the meantime kick back, relax and enjoy the tunes we’ve assembled together for you below.

[MEGA SUMMER 2014] Vol 2: Hip-Hop & R&B Playlist

tmnsummerhiphop-600x433

Summer is an incredibly precious season to us, because in our belief it represents the very best that music has to offer. Whether it’s the slew of magnificent releases that find their way onto our pages, or the breathtaking outdoor festivals and concerts that mesmerize and captivate our attention, there’s no doubt in our minds that music and summer share a truly magical relationship. Going on our second year now, our MEGA SUMMER PLAYLISTS are our ultimate ode to the season, as we pay tribute to the tracks that have soundtracked our journey over the past few months.

Returning bigger and badder than ever, our series chronicles summer’s very best offerings across four different genres. Earlier this month, we debuted the first playlist, which consisted of Indie Rock and Folk singles. Today’s selection of tracks captures the true essence of summer, from breezy and relaxed R&B, to the most turnt-up rap songs on the planet. Believe it or not, we still have two more massive playlists left to share, with a wide array of Alternative tracks on deck for our next release before we wrap things up with our EDM playlist.

We hope this playlist helps you squeeze out the last ounces of summer, while serving as a reminder of how great this season truly was. Enjoy!

update

As the calendar slowly turns another page, bringing to most what is considered as the last month of summer, we can only hope to make the best of what’s left of this incredible season. For most of you out there, you’ve probably hit a festival or two. For some, you just simply enjoyed being outdoors, doing what you love. Whatever it is you have on deck for the next month, we have you covered as far as tunes go.

To celebrate the last three months of incredible music, we’ve once again banded together as a clan, calling on ninjas all over the world to give us their favorite tunes from the summer months. Just as we did last year, we’ve created you four top-notch playlists, starting this week with our Indie Rock and Folk selections.

The 2014 Mega Summer Playlist Vol I: Indie Rock & Folk is stacked top to bottom, ranging from laid-back vocalists singing over a singular instrument, to fast-paced garage rock bands, who will get you out of your seat, to everything in between. Press play and get ready for over 100 songs of greatness.

[Festival Review] TMN Dives Into Denver’s Underground Music Showcase

If you’re wondering whether or not Colorado’s music scene is embodied solely by bass-heavy barons devastating Red Rocks on a regular basis, or the constant national and international accolades given to Beta Nightclub year after year, you can stop that right now. While much of the Mile High City’s music scene’s notoriety falls into those two aforementioned venues, The UMS flexed it’s mighty indie muscle two weekends ago, showing the city, the state, the nation, and the world that a handful of tiny venues deserves just as much attention.

Taking over one of Denver’s most prized neighborhoods, The UMS flooded the numerous dive bars, galleries, and restaurants that adorn the colorful South Broadway stretch. In a meticulous blend of some well known acts coupled with hyper-indie (so indie, even the hippest of your friends haven’t heard about them yet) there was more than enough to appease the auditory appetite of the thousands of festival goers that flooded the streets.

Knowing that there was too much music for one ninja to cover, we had to break up The UMS between two from our clan. Check out what Matty and Clayton experienced during their first full experience of this must-attend event.

While we couldn’t yet make it out in full force to the first night of Denver’s incredible Underground Music Showcase, we did manage to make it to one of our favorite electronic artist’s sets, with CRL CRRLL (pronounced Carl Carrell) at Blue Ice. An abbreviated set to say the least, CRL CRRLL managed to warp our minds through different texturized soundscapes played off of his bevy of machines, MIDI controllers and gadgets on stage through the 40 minute performance. This was the second time we’ve had the pleasure of witnessing him live, as he played our TMN presented show in Denver with Young & Sick (which if you haven’t heard his remix of their tune “Glass”, check it out below) and it seems in the short span of time, CRLCRRLL’s reached a more fluid, comfortable and mature stage presence.

Five Ninjas. Five Coachella Stories. [Event Review]

Story 1 – Clayton Warwick

Day one of Coachella was an interesting one for me. Coming off of a full day of food poisoning hell, sitting through twelve hours of hot sunlight was the last thing I wanted to do. None the less, I bucked up and rode down to the festival with our crew. Despite severe dehydration, an uneasy stomach, and a blinding headache, I made my way through some of my favorite artists that were playing that day.

Before I delved into performances, I had to stop off to interview the legendary Gareth Emery in the press area. Thankfully, they were fully stocked with hydrating beverages, which helped my recovery quite nicely. After a fun and engaging chat with Gareth, I was ready to take on what day one had to offer.

The highlights were too abundant to cover in great length, featuring notable sets from Ellie Goulding, Aloe Blacc, Zedd, and of course Outkast. While Outkast’s performance wasn’t my favorite musically, it was still amazing based on the sheer nostalgic appeal. I found myself belting out lyrics through a queasy stomach on multiple occasions, simply not giving a fuck at how I felt. At that moment, I knew they had something special going.

Day two was a much more enjoyable experience for me, especially given the fact that I saw the most impressive set of the entire festival, in my honest opinion. We worked our way to the very front of the Mojave tent to catch the always entertaining post-rock instrumental band Mogwai, and were absolutely blown away. In a 50 minute set of pure musical intoxication, Mogwai utilized their slow, building rhythms to provide a complete encapsulation. It was truly amazing.

There were other highlights from Day two as well, including an absolute ear-fuck from Skrillex, whose visuals essentially were the internet boiled into one 50 minute set. Other acts that impressed included Kid Cudi, Capital Cities, Head and the Heart, and City and Colour.

Day three was probably the most memorable for me, musically, as I was able to witness some acts I’ve been writing about for the past few years. Right out of the gates we caught James Vincent McMorrow, who had the best vocal talent out of any artist at the festival. His set was mesmerizing, and was then followed up nicely by his labelmate, The 1975, who displayed their up-and-coming rock god status. Matty casually flipped his mic cord around as he strutted the stage, boasting nothing but sheer swagger.

For the last few sets of the night, we were honestly so exhausted that we listened from afar, sitting with the aching-foot crowd of parents and older festival-goers. Disclosure was nothing short of stunning, even though we couldn’t see the stage from where we were at.

Once again, Coachella has proved to me that no matter how hard you try, your plans will be proved futile. It’s so easy to get caught in the moment, forgoing your well thought out plans for those of the friends you are with. It’s both a blessing, and a curse, but 100% worth every minute of it.

Story 2 – Brooke Ferguson

As I walked into the Polo Fields Campgrounds, I instantly felt like I was at home. Each and every year that I attend Coachella, I automatically know that my mind is about to enter into an entirely new dimension full of phenomenal music, abstract art, and memories to last me a lifetime. This year, I decided to change up my festival routine and experience music on an entirely new level. I ventured off into a hypnotic place where I was surrounded by some of the most enchanting people I have ever come across. Their love for music and inter-human connectivity fulfilled all of my festival cravings. There is nothing more exciting than being around a bunch of weirdo’s who love to vibe on a level that promotes the provocation of a divine synchronicity.

Every day brought forth new experiences, new people, and new music. It is nearly impossible to see everyone you plan to watch, but I guess that is what makes Coachella such an adventure in and of itself. We are given the opportunity to either solidify ourselves to a strict schedule, or we can simply allow our wandering souls to guide us towards the unknown; the only place where insurmountable beauty exists.

This year at Coachella, I decided to let the music bring me solace and peace of mind. I spent a lot of my time underneath the glorious Sahara Tent where the bass could be felt a mile away. I should have remembered to bring some diapers with me because there were plenty of sketchy moments where I could have totally lost all control of my bodily functions. When you have artists like Dillon Francis, Carnage, The Glitch Mob, Krewella, and more, the probability of crapping your pants increases with each rise in frequency. I know I wasn’t the only one who experienced moments of uncertainty as to whether or not it was the beat that dropped or my pants. I am still contemplating this to this day.

Overall, Coachella provided its attendees with a wide array of talent to please everyone’s musical inclinations. Having an eclectic taste in music made it extremely difficult to choose my top acts of the weekend. After nearly a week of battling an extreme case of cognitive dissonance, I have finally made up my mind as to who blew my mind away. The winning sets this year go to: Flight Facilities, Cage The Elephant, Kill Paris, and Adventure Club. Each of these artists evoked a different side of me, whether it be my inner diva at Flight Facilities and Kill Paris or my inner flower child at Cage The Elephant. I guess it’s safe to say that I can diagnose myself with multiple personality disorder because there were many different sides of me that made their debut that weekend. Only at Coachella is it socially acceptable to black out from being over-stimulated by your surroundings and not recall the absurdity of your behavior.

Now that my favorite festival has come to an end and the post-Coachella depression has subdued, I must endure the next 365 excruciating days of monotony until I can once again return to my Utopia.
