Post image for The Five: Best Songs To Get You Excited For Fall

Enter autumn. Come have a listen to our favorite tunes to celebrate the change in seasons.Read More

Hi Joanna! I loved your list, many of the songs are some of my personal all year favourites! Being a swede, I'm very spoiled with great music from our little country and I have seen first aid kit several times. I would like to add a song to this list that I both think is suitable for autumn, but also very much for free people, namely Wonderlust by Crying Day Care Choir. CDCC is a Swedish folk trio (consisting of me, my husband and my brother in law :) and I think our band embodies what freee means to me. The song is on spotify, and we also have a video for it, where we are just living life and being free with our loved ones this past summer. I would love for you to hear our song and see our video. Lots of love, Sara and CDCC

Kaitlyn -Sep 24, 2015, 11:44PM
YES! The Bar-Keys are my soul-tonic. xxKate

Groovy choices, Alana, Kate, 1813leather, and Marianne! Alana and Kate, I had to look up The Main Squeeze and Harts -- it's always interesting and cool to listen to "new" funk. Thanks for the rec! 1813leather, I listened to "War" so much when I was a kid, I just loved it -- it's a legendary funk song. Marianne, I'm diggin' those choices! Thanks all! xx, Joanna

Post image for The Five: Vintage Records Every Vinyl Collection Needs

Have a look at the five vintage albums (we think) every music lover and vinyl collection needs. Read More

Susanna -Sep 20, 2015, 11:14PM
I would add Bob Dylan's Blood On the Tracks. Every song on the album is stellar on its own, and as a whole it is wonderfully cohesive musically and thematically, which I always feel is important when you're looking at vinyls.
fp joanna -Sep 17, 2015, 12:00PM
Judy, Erin, Sophie: yes, yes, YES! All great albums! Judy, love your Joan Armatrading choice -- which is your favorite record? Sophie, oh man, that album is gooood! xx, Joanna

Post image for 5 Tips for Making the Most of One Day at a Music Festival

Have only one day to spend at a music festival? No worries! Here are our top five tips to make the most of your day.

Drink lots of fluids, too. Being dehydrated can really make you feel awful, and with only one day to spare, you don't have time to lose. I've used rosewater for years, and swear by it. Norma Bates used it, and look how great she looked when she got older ;)
Elizabeth Rose -Aug 13, 2015, 2:17PM
It's not so much a tip as it is adding onto one of your tips, but if you get some downtime at a festival to rest/take a brief nap in the grass DO IT. It might seem like a waste to snooze or even just rest for 30 minutes, but it's amazing how refreshed and more alert you can be when you take a few minutes to sleep. I didn't fall sound asleep, but I definitely laid down for half a set at Forecastle so I could be ultra charged for a 3 hour My Morning Jacket set at Forecastle. Worth it.

Someone weaved a love for history in my bones, and this was so lovely (and informative). I love to imagine the past in dreamy hues and create little fictional people in gypsy skirts twirling around to their own tunes. Have a fantastic time at Outside Lands!
