North Texan and Fungi Girls’ frontman, Jacob Bruce oozes dream pop glitter out of his pours. His solo project under the name Vacations will be there for all those warm summer evenings and laid-back gatherings of respectable women and gentlemen. Having only one release on Play! Pinball Records, Bruce puts his best foot forward with Clouded Nights, a track that you can't help but to tap you foot or nod your head. I'm anticipating more releases of this caliber. Have a listen.
I was getting jerked around on the bus today while I was heading to work when I realized that MIA's Paper Planes sampled the Clash's Straight to Hell. I might be the only one who didn't know this so it came as a pretty weird surprise. I actually thought a Paper Planes remix had been incorrectly labeled or I accidentally hit shuffle somehow, but that was not the case. The discovery actually bothered me for a minute because I really dislike MIA and thought that she might have stole some of the Clash's thunder for the melody. But Straight to Hell, while less poppy and dancy was a gem hiding in my ipod waiting to be found. So here I am sharing it with you. Enjoy.
This track is dedicated to a fellow fan of the Clash, Daveed. Kill it up there, hombre.
