Following her success with Aquarius and the remixes spawned from “2 On,” Tinashe released her fourth mixtape, Amethyst, yesterday. It’s an appropriate followup to her February birthday, astrological sign, and birthstone. She enlists a crew of artists, including Ritz Reynolds, Dominic Angelella, and Legacy, whom she all worked with on Aquarius, to craft an overall good mixtape, however it leaves something to be desired. One can only look forward to her next release or tour to satisfy oneself. A track-by-track review follows after the jump.
Calling all fans of electronic music, cuddling, electronic music that sounds like cuddling, Pokémon, Canada, and just a straight up good time: Canadian Prince aka Mr. Steal Your Wifi aka Producer Game Omar Borkan Al Galaaka aka the Bae Whisperer* is back at U Street Music Hall next Wednesday, November 19th. Now, this isn’t Ryan Hemsworth’s first time at the club. I happened to catch his set earlier this year, and I can assure you that you are not going to want to miss out on this show. He’s currently on his Sucker for Punishment tour, and he’s brought along the artists from his Shh Secret Songs project, with different artists performing on different dates. For his Washington DC stop, Ryan Hemsworth will be playing with Tennyson and Ricky Eat Acid (who actually happen to be two of my favorite artists from the project.) Believe me when I say that this is probably going to be one of the most fun shows you’ll go to in a while, so bring a friend or twelve and make sure you put on your dancing shoes. Check out his latest album, Alone For The First Time, which just dropped, and is full of his typical woozy, unconventional sound.
Excited yet? Fortunately for you, this Friday we’re giving away a pair of tickets to catch the Remix Ryan Gosling live and in the flesh!
