listen: “Elevate” by St. Lucia

Even though it’s only May, there has been talk about what the song of the summer will be. Some early contenders include catchy hits by Iggy Azalea and Calvin Harris, but I would like to throw “Elevate” by the Brooklyn based St. Lucia into the ring. The band, which is lead by the perfectly-coiffed Jean-Philip Grobler, is … Continue reading

listen: “Follow Your Arrow” by Kacey Musgraves

Kacey Musgraves is not your typical country singer.  You can definitely hear the country twang in her voice, but her lyrics don’t follow the typical country music blueprint. She is absolutely gorgeous, but she might be the first successful country singer to rock a nose ring. She is currently filling the void that the Dixie Chicks … Continue reading

listen: “Digital Witness” by St. Vincent

YouTube is a great source for parodies that comment on the state of the union or the affect of media through song, but it has been awhile since a song directly addresses the subject head on. Enter singer/songwriter Annie Clark aka St. Vincent. With her new single, “Digital Witness”, she talks about people use and are … Continue reading

listen: “Silhouette” by Active Child featuring Ellie Goulding

From the very first note, I was instantly taken by the song, “Silhouette” by the musician Pat Grossi who creates dreamy pop tunes reminiscent of the group, New Order, under the name Active Child. If that band name sounds familiar, it’s because one of his songs, “Hanging On” was covered by Ellie Goulding on her … Continue reading

wear: Taylor Swift’s Style

I have never met anyone who hasn’t looked back at an old photograph of themselves and cringed a little bit about past fashion choices. I’m sure the same goes for country pop superstar Taylor Swift. Remember the days when she had ringlets and was often seen wearing vintage florals that aged her and prom dresses … Continue reading

listen: “Happy” by Pharrell Williams

There are very few songs that actually make me happy. “Happy” by Pharrell Williams is one of those songs that makes me…happy. After one listen, it’s hard not to want to jump up and start dancing down the sidewalk. Uplifting lyrics and a bouncy retro beat make this song instantly catchy. The song, which is … Continue reading

Listen: Fare Thee Well (Dink’s Song)

I’m not the biggest fan of folk music: I have some Bob Dylan, James Taylor, and Cat Stevens songs on my iPod, but that genre is in the minority when it comes to music I usually listen to. The overabundance of folk music is what made me apprehensive about seeing the Coen Brothers’ latest film, … Continue reading

Celebrate: The New Year (by Following Me on Twitter!)

2014 is less than 24 hours away. The past couple of days have allowed me to reflect on all the good and the bad things that have happened this year. One great that has happened this year is this blog. One of my biggest flaws is that when it comes to a passion project, I … Continue reading

A Year in Review – Music

2013 was the year where some of music’s biggest superstars released new music. Taylor Swift, Beyoncé , Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake, Beyoncé, Beyoncé,  and Beyoncé come to mind when it comes to some of the year’s biggest releases (Beyoncé’s self titled album was so big, it needed to be mentioned 5 times). Along with these brought along some … Continue reading

listen: “Underneath the Tree”

I feel like an musician has official made it once he or she releases a Christmas album. You can have 20 Grammys, but if you haven’t released a Christmas single or album, you still have work to do ( do you hear me, Kanye West?). The latest artist to release to a Christmas album is … Continue reading

listen: “Christmas Lights”

Thanksgiving has come and gone and today is the first Monday in December, which means in my eyes (and apparently my eyes only), that it’s officially the right time for Christmas to begin. For the next four weeks, “Thoughts.Suggestions.Lifestyle” will switch open the music page and suggest Christmas songs that you should listen to during … Continue reading

wear: 2013 American Music Awards Red Carpet Style

The American Music Awards were on last night and unlike every other music award show that aired this year, I actually watched a large portion of it. Here are some of my favorite looks of the night: 1. I’m really enjoying the understated red carpet appearances that Katy Perry has been making lately. Her polka … Continue reading
