Landmark Music Festival Day 2 Recap: Featuring Avers, Ace Cosgrove, Houndmouth, Chromeo, Chvrches, The Strokes, and more!

Source: Rock On Philly

The first Landmark Festival, like any music festival in its first year, didn’t have a flawless start. Social media proved that many attendees were disgusted by the long lines for beverages and food on the first day. Hand it to Landmark, however, for quickly addressing these issues, making for a truly remarkable experience for Day 2. To top it all off, the second day’s line-up was just a little bit more weird and more complimentary to the Super Blood Moon which made for a truly historic day surrounded by the living history of the festival grounds.

2014 Budweiser Made In America Festival - Day 1 - Philadelphia

Earlier this year, Consequence of Sound asked “Where are all the hip-hop festivals?” Made in America may have indie-rock, EDM, soul and other popular genres mixed in, but it was hip-hop and rap that took center stage yesterday in Philadelphia.

Queens-based rapper Bas tore up the Skate Park stage to get the day started, performing songs from his debut album, Last Winter—released via J. Cole’s Dreamville Records. Later on the same stage, Philly’s own Moosh & Twist went balls-to-the-walls with it, bouncing all over the stage and even climbing it. At just 21-years-old, ...

The Sweetlife Festival, celebrating its fifth year in the D.C. metropolitan area, brought an estimated 20,000 attendees to the Merriweather Post Pavilion for three stages of bands and several lots of food and beer. Presented by D.C. salad shop Sweetgreen, the festival stretched for about 11 hours, 20 musical acts and perhaps a combined 80 food vendors and retail stores on Saturday, May 10.

While the festival had a few repeat acts this year, I personally found the lineup a lot more to my musical tastes than last ...

Chromeo – Lost On The Way Home (Ft. Solange)

Source: All Things Go

Electrofunk duo Chromeo have always seemed like the band having the most fun, so it’s nice to see them letting other artists join in on it with their upcoming album White Women. After some deftly executed feature spots from Ezra Koenig and Toro Y Moi, Solange is entering the mix with an appearance on new track “Lost On The Way Home.” There ends up being plenty of room for both Ms. Knowles’ soulful pop and Chromeo’s funk. The song has a handclap beat and reverbing synths complemented by a deep bassline. Dave1′s falsetto trades off with Solange’s vocals in some call-and-response ...
