I Want It All (Playlist: Feb 12, 2017)

I Want It All
Compiled Feb 12, 2017

The title of my first playlist of the new year is ‘I Want It All,’ (very fitting, I know) an AWESOME NEW TRACK that Mike Deni of Geographer first rolled out to us at The Rickshaw Stop a few weeks ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pQzUd9qJ2Zo. This playlist was inspired by past shows: Geographer, Bear’s DenLord Huron, Kyle Morton of Typhoon (who I had waited 6 years to see live),Mogwai, Anthony D’Amato, Valley Maker and upcoming shows: Tash Sultana (BEEN WAITING 6 MONTHS FOR THIS!), The Staves (have wanted to see these SISTER SIRENS in concert for YEARS!), and Bastille. It also includes awesome new tracks by Laura Marling (arguably one of the most impressive and vocally challenging gem in her collection — SLAYED when she shared it with California for the first time at Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6HufiX1j3X8), Geographer, Bear’s Den, Lord Huron, Amber Run, Asgeir (SO GLAD HE IS BACK – one of my FAVORITE ICELANDIC ARTISTS!), Tow’rs (excited for their third album!), Mogwai (the artistic arsenal of their new album, Atomic, detonates an explosion in our brains – a radioactive realization about the heinous impact of chemical warfare), Milky Chance, and Radical Face. Last by not least, it features new discoveries that I am glad to have pocketed: Cloves, Doncat (guitarist of Geographer), Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness , LANY, Lewis Del Mar, Guthrie Brown, Ron Gallo, Branches, Lisa Hannigan, The Midwest Indies, and Andy Chew. Pleased to post this before a whole NEW SLEW of BANDS at NoisePop music fest in SF next week! CAN’T WAIT!  😀

“Trevor Hall’s music – an inspirational eclectic mix of acoustic rock, reggae & Sanskrit chanting – echo with the names & teachings of divinities, while maintaining an incredibly & refreshingly universal message.” After first discovering Trevor Hall back in 2011 by one of my good friends Jen, I was completely hooked. That voice, that VOICE. It wraps you up in a warm and fuzzy fog of love and gratitude, encouraging you to “open up and live.. The more you learn the more you give.” He kicked off his set with soul soothers from Chapter of the Forest and then weaved in newer songs like ‘Standing Rock‘ (“If you are the righteous hear it.. Stand up like a mountain”) and Madman of the Heart “If you wander now you’ll never find your way back home”). His stories behind the inspiration of Bowl of Light (“Auntie Emily!”) and the Lime Tree (“about eternity, of course”) were both hilarious and intriguing, and you almost wanna do more resource on their source (“flow festival; Halea makula; Hawaiian folklore”). But, it was Trevor’s ‘You can’t rush your healing‘ (“The more you push the more it pushes back… Time is a gift…Darkness has its teachings”) and ‘Obsidian‘ (“the music is my fortress”) that had everyone transported to another world, a “land of the Indians with constellations burning, burning”). I’m still a bit numb from last night, and am thoroughly convinced that if Trevor Hall could sing to the entire world, we’d all be at peace. “Open up and live, let that sweet love come in.” ❤️🙏🏻 Trevor Hall Trevor Hall (solo) at Sweetwater Music Hall Sweetwater Music Hall Folkyeah Presents @sweetwatermv @folkyeahevents #trevorhall #villagers #sweetwater #chapteroftheforest #youcantrushyourhealing #timeisagift #darknesshasitsteachings #musicismedicine #soothethysoul
