[#SKOA30] Day 16: A Song That Describes Your Best Friend

In recent years I’ve become really particular about who I devote a lot of emotional energy to because I’ve had to learn the hard way that a lot of times people aren’t interested in friendship being a two-way thing. I’m very fortunate that I can use today’s pick to describe the majority of the loved ones in my life that are closest to me. “Call If You Need Me” from electronic duo Galantis’ debut full-length Pharmacy accurately demonstrates the kind of encouragement and support that I find my best friend giving me almost on a daily basis. It’s hard to reprogram yourself after years of allowing your self-doubt to be your reality, but when you’ve got the right support system cheering you along every step of the way, it certainly makes you want to work harder to reflect what they see in you. It’s also a priceless thing to have someone who will make time for you when you’ve found yourself in the midst of a meltdown, regardless of how well founded it is or not.

[SONG OF THE DAY] Galantis - "Emoji"

Last week Swedish sweethearts Galantis released a shimmery new single, “Emoji” complete with an adorable music video that brings the “💗”emoji to life. At least I’m pretty sure that’s the correct emoji featured here as I just learned that 💗 is the “growing heart” emoji and 💓 is the “beating heart” emoji. Who gets tasked with naming emojis anyway? I personally would have gone with my far superior go-to 💖but that’s just me.

If you happen to be in San Francisco next Friday you can catch the dazzling duo at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, unless you’d prefer to catch them for NYE related festivities in Chicago.


Fri Nov 16 - San Francisco, CA - Bill Graham Civic Auditorium [TICKETS]

Really feeling this week's mixtape you guys.

Really feeling this week's mixtape you guys.

Can't stop. Won't stop. Can't stop working. But it's chill though, the atmosphere I've been launched into has me surrounded by people who are music junkies just like me! In fact, I found Michl courtesy of one of my dope new friends at the office I'm in right now. (Thanks dude!) Sprout and I also hit up Honne on Tuesday this week where we hung out in the dungeon of a basement at Mercury Lounge and chatted with with James and Andy before they got the entire place pregnant. It's good to be busy. Then we had Flagship at Rough Trade on Friday night. Those guys were super great too. Can't wait to interview them and officially usher them into the skoa fam. But yeah, there's a lot going on but the majority of it is awesome. I guess you could say I'm #stressedbutalsoblessed. I hope you enjoyed this week's show. I'd love to hear from you if I just introduced you to your new favorite song (I know I'm kind of obsessing over SOULS right now).

Until next week!




And here's the headlines I rushed through that you can read more about (and you should so you're smarter than everyone else):

As always, feel free to snag the Spotify playlist below so you can listen to the sweet jams I picked out for you on the go!

Oof. Really stoked for this show and because I submitted it late it was a little borked airing. You didn't even get to hear the last two segments. :( All good though! There's always next week (not to mention the podcast that will be attached to this show shortly). But yeah, trying to get back to digging out those little diamonds in the rough that I enjoy supporting. Plus HELLO NEW KENNA!! *praise hands emoji* A lot to be excited about. Expect more posts in between this show and the next with more info on the bands we're featuring.

As always feel free to let me know what you thought of this week's show either by dropping a comment here or hitting me up on Twitter.

Until next week!
