If you don't like music you can't sit with us.

If you don't like music you can't sit with us.

It's chill af in NYC today. Literally. Like I'm having a hard time getting out of bed because I like my feet not being popsicles. I am writing this whilst I am still in bed. That said, the chill means that all the glorious fall albums are under way and CMJ is quickly approaching. I've also been on a steady streak of shows lately, which I will get up ASAP for you to see and be jealous of me. I'm also working to backdate all the show notes I kept saying I was upping and then rage quit because as you can see below these posts are intense as hell, you guys. OH WELL IT'S WORTH IT BECAUSE I LOVE DOING THIS!

Enjoy this weeks jams and be sure to grab the Spotify playlist below if you want to keep this mix around. As always, I'd love to hear from you so feel free to drop me a tweet and let me know what you thought of this week's show.

Really feeling this weeks show, you guys.

Really feeling this weeks show, you guys.

Things have been a whirlwind at SKOA HQ so show notes have been a little neglected the past couple of weeks. DON'T WORRY I plan on backdating some posts so y'all have the hookup though! Super excited about the new jams from Peaches, CHVRCHES, and Jacuzzi Boys from this week's show so feel free to drop me a line to let me know what you thought of those!

Until next week, fam!

[Watch] Dillon Francis - "Bruk Bruk (I Need Yo Lovin')" (Lyric Video)

Oh man, the lyrics to Dillon Francis' latest single, "Bruk Bruk (I Need Yo Lovin')"  were so complex that I was hoping he'd post them on the internetz and that he has in another hilarious lyric video (below). Just like his "I Can't Take It" lyric video we have more googly-eyed creatures singing to us, although this time it's more fire-related things and less junk food to play into his forthcoming EP, This Mixtape Is Fire, which drops on August 14th. There's many a collabo on this fiery mixtape, including (but not limited to): Calvin Harris, Chromeo, and Skrillex.

If pre-ordering is the name of your game, you can do so over on iTunes

(btw it's the internet and sometimes you can't detect sarcasm so I would like to take this moment to make sure you all know I was joking about not knowing all of the lyrics to this) 

Speaking of "I Can't Take It", Francis also recently unveiled the length docu-style video the song which he calls "Exit Through The Donut Hole" which is as delightfully entertaining and trollsome as it is weird, which is very on-brand for him. Definitely worth checking out if you have 15 minutes to spare for the lulz. 

My favorite follow on Snapchat is also hitting the road with Zedd, Madeon and the gang on Zedd's upcoming True Colors Tour so be sure to grab tickets while you can for that. 

THIS MIXTAPE IS FIRE TRACKLIST:

  1. Dillon Francis – “Bruk Bruk (I Need Your Lovin)”
  2. Dillon Francis and Calvin Harris – “What's Your Name”
  3. Dillon Francis and Skrillex – “Bun Up the Dance”
  4. Dillon Francis and Bro Safari – “Pull It”
  5. Dillon Francis feat. James Hersey – “Coming Over”
  6. Dillon Francis feat Chromeo – “Lies”
  7. Dillon Francis – “I Can't Take It (Party Favor Remix)”

Typing up all the show notes this week for once because I love you, fam. 

YES! I'M ACTUALLY DOING SHOW NOTES FOR THIS WEEK! #sorrynotsorry but like I said in this week's episode I've been dealing with a bit of blogger burnout and even though doing the show is very therapeutic for me when you see how thorough I intend to be moving forward you will understand why I put this off for as long as I could. Again, I really appreciate those of you who listen and never get the promised show notes. NO MORE BROKEN PROMISES! Just quality #content in addition to a bunch of other new things in the works right now. 

Hope you enjoyed this weeks show! Feel free to drop a comment here or hit me up on Twitter. I'd love to hear what you thought of this week's picks!

Until next week!

@kibbe!

BONUS JUST FOR YOU FAM! I'm also making playlists on Spotify for every single show. NO SHUFFLE THO BECAUSE THAT'S CHEATING! Additionally, as the shows become available on iTunes I will update each post with a link to the show for your listening pleasure. Enjoy! 

[Listen] Dillon Francis - 'Money Sucks, Friends Rule' (Full Album Stream)

NEW.

MUSIC.

TUESDAY. 

NEW. 

DILLON.

FRANICS (a week early!)! 

I am a very happy Kibbe today, let me tell you! I have been waiting for this album since the first time I heard "When We Were Young" a few months ago. MTV got the hookup on a full album stream a week before the album officially drops next week (October 29th) courtesy of Columbia Records/Mad Decent. I'm only two songs in at the moment and already I'm very upset that I am confined to my desk at work instead of blasting this in Kibbtopia and dancing around like a crazy person. 

Have a listen to Money Sucks, Friends Rule below. Be sure to pre-order the album on iTunes here if you haven't already because that is the right thing to do. I personally will probably pony up for the deluxe version, but I will be waiting on that until after the dust settles on the damage I do at CMJ this week (more on that later btw!). 

Be sure to catch Dillon Franics on his 'Friend Rule' tour next month starting in Nashville!

[Watch] Dillon Francis - "I Can't Take It" (Lyric Video)
Normally I'm not much for lyric videos. The one for Dillon Francis' latest single, "I Can't Take It", however, is something I can definitely get on board with. Following up his previous single that I played on repeat for a grand total of 11 times the first time I heard it, "When We Were Young" along with his first single, "Get Low", this latest track slows things down a bit for the sake of getting good and nasty. Both tracks come from Francis' forthcoming debut album, Money Sucks Friends Rule, which is slated for an October 28th release. You can pre-order the album over on iTunes if that's your thing. For those not in the know, Money Sucks, Friends Rule will feature collaborations from the likes of DJ Snake, Chain Gang of 1974, Martin Garrix, Twista, Panic! At The Disco’s Brendon Urie, The Presets and Major Lazer, among others. 
Upon the release of his debut album, Franics will be heading out on The Friends Rule Tour this fall, beginning in November and wrapping with a massive headline date at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center in January. Peep the dates below for more info!

[Listen] A-Trak x Dillon Francis - "Money Makin'"

We have a full version of the track "Money Makin'" from Dillon Francis and A-Trak after being teased with a snippet last week. The track is set for release on Fool's Gold and is full of feel good vibes to get you in the mood for the weekend. I'm aware it's only Tuesday but with this weather in the UK it's hard to not wish the working week away. Cut me some slack and "put the cash in my hand" and hit play below to enjoy.

[Listen] Dillon Francis - "Falling Up"

Stepping away from his house sound a little, Dillon Francis has uploaded a brand new bass heavy track that I suppose you could call dubstep. It's called falling up and although isn't what you'd normally expect from Dillon it's a pretty cool and supposedly was inspired by Skrillex's tune "Ruffneck". Enjoy.
