Stella’s Stars of 2017

I’m back again with a brand new set of images, which I like to call “Stella’s Stars of 2017”! I’ve chosen a small selection to share, including a few 35mm film images I made at this year’s St. Jerome’s Laneway music festival in Auckland. Something a bit different. I can’t believe another year has flown by. To be honest, it’s […]

Weekend Showcase 3.45

Weekend Showcase 3.45

Seems like the number 53 is magical because once again our weekly mega-playlist – the Weekend Showcase 3.45 edition – has that many songs for the fourth consecutive week. This week’s version feels like winter with darker and more melodic numbers, so grab a warm beverage like a hot toddy and enjoy the music. As always, the playlist features the […]

The Matinee November 17th

Old and new favorites collide on The Matinee November 17th edition. The mini-playlist has some sweet melodies and heartbreaking ballads plus a few upbeat numbers to get you in a perky mood. Although we usually list the songs alphabetically, we have to start with the return of a young woman who has amazed us when she introduced herself a little […]

Mundo 50: RevueFest II

Mundo 50: RevueFest II

A year ago when the numerous festivals were announcing their lineups, we were joking around and exchanging names on the artists and bands we would invite if we could curate our own event. This little brainstorming session resulted in us sharing RevueFest, our make-believe, three-day festival. Like what we aimed to do here, the focus was on those hidden gems […]

The Mega, Mega Playlist of 2015

The Mega, Mega Playlist of 2015

Over the past year, we’ve listened to thousands of singles – way too many to count. Throughout the year, we’ve shared many of them through three regular features – The Melodic Tonic, The Matinee, and The Weekend Showcase. While we could have rolled up all those singles into one mammoth playlist, that would have meant a playlist of nearly 1,500 songs, not to […]

The first day of ACL was amazing even though it was super humid and cloudy, it was a full day of awesome music. All professional looking photos taken in this post are courtesy of Gabe Guevara, there will be a few I took myself as we couldn’t be at two places at the same time. Probably out of all three […]

Mundo – Perfect Harmony

Mundo – Perfect Harmony

Do you ever daydream about musical combinations that could be just magical? We’re not talking Donny & Marie type pairings (those two are siblings) or Beyonce and Jay-Z (they’re married), but collaborations that would just be like perfect harmony yet have not happened yet. We often think about it when listening to a song or an album and say to ourselves, […]

Tame Impala, “Current” – Our First Impressions

Tame Impala, “Current” – Our First Impressions

We haven’t done a First Impressions in a few weeks, as we’ve opted to save this feature for albums that we all truly wanted to review. This week, we collectively look at Tame Impala‘s Currents. Through their first two albums – 2010’s Innerspeaker and 2012’s Lonerism, both critically acclaimed albums – the Perth, Australia quintet have led the revival of […]
