Odesza

Currently obsessing over the album Summer’s Gone by Odesza. The duo’s sound is super unique, but I guess if I were to slap a genre label on them, it’d be electronic. That being said, you can tell the album has a lot of different musical influences, from indie to hip-hop, and I can’t get enough!

 

This is definitely a great album to listen to when you just want to kick back and relax. Their sounds transported me to a cooler, calmer place, and I hope it does the same for you! Give ’em a listen and tell me what you think!

Music Monday!

Not sure how many EDM fans I have following me, but I stumbled across this remix of A Great Big World’s “Say Something” feat. Christina Aguilera and I can’t stop playing it!!! What do you think? Here are both versions:

Chicago!

Just returned home from a [quick] trip to Chicago!

My friend Brittany and I went to the city on Wednesday to go see Swedish House Mafia perform. The group is currently on their last tour because they are all going to venture out as individual artists. I have always loved electronic dance music and SHM is one of my all-time favorite groups. Their music puts me in such an amazing trance and just makes me so happy. Even though the show was during the week, and I had to miss some classes, I couldn’t not see them.

The show was unbelievable and I am so happy I decided to go.

 

Thursday, Brittany and I just explored the city. We’ve both been to Chicago enough times that we’ve done most of the “touristy” things, which means we didn’t really have an agenda. It was so nice to just walk around and explore. I think that’s when you see the most, when you’re not really looking for something in particular, or trying to get somewhere in a hurry. We ended up getting a bit lost but it was great because we saw some wonderful new areas we’d never been to before.

As with any trip, food is most important, here are some snapshots of some of the eating I did while there:

While in Chicago, I also got to meet up with one of my friends from Luleå, Sweden. It’s been 5 years since the last time we saw each other! She’s studying at the university in Chicago now, so we’ll definitely be seeing more of each other. I missed her so so much.

Overall, the trip was great. Chicago is always a pleasure to visit and I cannot wait until my next trip back!
