Vampire_Weekend - Step

In 2013, Vampire Weekend had as good of a year as any. They released one of my favorite albums of the year, and headlined Barclays Center.

They capped it off in proper style, releasing a “wintertime remix” of “Step” (my favorite song of the year) last week featuring Danny Brown, Heems, & Despot. They shred the remix on twitter, and it’s available to grab as a free mp3 download below.

The two wrote a new song titled “Molly Rangwald”, on the spot and it will later be recorded on a 7″ on Yours Truly’s Love Letters Ink Imprint. “Molly Ringwald” will be available to download on July 17. Below watch the Yours Truly video of the collaboration.

To win a copy of the 7″, tag @yourstrulysf in a facebook status update linking to the video.

[CMJ]: Danny Brown @ Fader Fort (10/22/2011)

By Will Oliver, October 24th 2011

Even I have been paying attention to the hype that rapper Danny Brown has been getting from the indie hip-hop world this year. Did he live up to it? Easily.

As you’ve surely noticed, live rap shows can be hit or miss. Especially with me. So for me to say that I had a lot of fun keeping up with this up and comer from Detroit is saying a lot. His deliver is pretty distinct, allowing him to stand out from the overwhelming amount of rappers popping up these days.

There’s probably a reason a label such as Fool’s Gold signed him up. He’s got a lot going for him. He’s an interesting watch, and an even more interesting listen.

Arctic Monkeys @ Ogden Theater

By no means am I a professional photographer. I don’t pretend to be. I know I have a lot of work and learning to do to improve and get better. But thanks to this blog, I’ve gotten better at it than I ever imagined I would be when I first started it five years ago.

I went to a lot of shows this year, and took a lot of shots. So many, that it would seem like a waste if I didn’t compile some of the best ones for your viewing pleasure.

I also added some of my favorite shots from some of our new team of contributing photographers, Andrew St. ClairDana Pacifico, Daniel Topete and Leah Runyon. All photos without a photo credit were taken by yours truly.

With that said, enjoy some of the favorite shots that appeared on We All Want Someone in 2013. Here’s to more great shots in 2014. Read the rest of this entry »

Sleigh Bells @ Terminal 5 (November 23, 2013)

Sleigh Bells brought their 2-night run at Terminal 5 to a close last night, bringing Danny Brown and Doldrums along for the fun once again.

I’ve caught a few truncated sets of Doldrums before, but this was easily the largest. It was my first time catching them since CMJ 2012, and since then they’ve released their debut album, Lesser Evil, and have embarked on quite a tour. They sounded even better than I imagine, and seem to be making a rise.

Danny Brown came next and got the crowd started with his DJ. By the time he came out, people were already ready to go nuts, and they did. Rap shows can always be hit and miss for me, but when someone goes as nuts as Danny Brown with a lot of amped up energy, it’s hard not to vibe along with it. He’s been getting more popular as the years go on, and I think things will only continue to rise for the rapper.

While Sleigh Bells new album Bitter Rivals failed to captivate me as much as their first two did, I still looked forward to seeing them live. These guys are a band that’s truly meant for the live setting. Live they are now a 4-piece band, with an additional guitarist and live drummer that add to all the controlled chaos.
