Lyrics of the day

Morning ritual escape is critical
Temporary burns from the touch of a restless romance
Spotless mind color coded, emotions like the Earth eroded
Holding on for something real, can’t breathe, can’t sit still
Warmth turns melancholy, one of us is always sorry
Change is in the air wanna talk about it with our bodies

Grimes:
grimes

Experimental pop queen, Grimes is on a level of her own and it’s changing the way in which females execute their music, particularly as solo artists. Having just released her fourth album, Art Angels- out now via 4AD, Grimes is set to bring her dynamic live performance to LIB with a headlining Lightning Stage debut that is sure to entice.

Grimes, known for her unorthodox showmanship, otherworldly appearance and “girly” voice, is one talented, fun performer to watch. This girl does everything from singing her own vocals, to engineering her own beats… and did we mention she is a self-taught multi instrumentalist? Grimes really does it all, and she does is completely ALONE! With a synthesizer by her side, Grimes builds beats and loops from the ground up during her live performances, only to step away from the mixing equipment to command the stage while she full-on sings her ethereal music. She truly is a one-woman show, and it’s incredible. You won’t want to skip out on Grimes’ as she glosses over LIB!


Alina Baraz:

2015 was a breakout year for rising singer-songstress, Alina Baraz. Alina, blooming after the successful release of her debut album Urban Flora featuring production partner Galimatias, will make her Lightning Stage debut with a live performance that will leave you spellbound.

Alina first gained momentum last year with sultry hit singles like “Fantasy” and “Make You Feel,” which garnered Alina Baraz & Galimatias an immediate following. Both fans and industry moguls alike recognized the sensual appeal behind Alina’s enticing voice and Galimatias’ airy, flirtatious musical compositions.There’s no denying the allure behind AB&G’s music, and it’s really no surprise how much hype was made over the full-length premiere of Urban Flora- out now via Ultra Records. The album was widely received by critics as it exquisitely crosses several genres- including hip hop, dance and pop. The pair toured the album late last year, capturing an even bigger following and earning AB&G a nomination for “Album of the Year” at the inaugural Electronic Music Awards & Foundation held on April 23 on Fox.You won’t want to miss this angelic girl sing!


Mija:
mija

She may have got her start with Skrillex back in 2014 but Mija has been a bossgirl from the start. Rocking a seafoam green do and a “f*ck genres” attitude, Mija is totally changing the game for women in electronic music. This year she’ll be fronting the Thunder Stage and showing the boys up with another insanely dope genre-crossing DJ set.

Mija is part of the OWSLA crew and has released several singles and mixes through the label. She’s also toured with a number of the artists on their roster, and was even part of the Full Flex Express tour last summer. She is one of very few female DJs out there touring with legendary artists like Skrillex and Diplo, among many others. That just proves we are witnessing a legendary female artist in the making, and Mija earned it all on her own! Her sound is unquestionably congenial and vanguard, qualities that make her music enjoyable for everyone- and timeless. It makes sense that she is completely booked through the summer, landing performances at all the biggest festivals in the US. Her set is one you definitely CANNOT miss at LIB. It’s going to be lit!

Rainy day raps continued…

my ex guy on the streets slanging, i be on the moon swinging
notoriously mind changing, one thing on my mind singing
swear i’m not the typa girl you taking home to momma
cuz i’ll be playing games until my closet full of prada
addicted to the drama, mermaid mafia, primadonna
latina with an attitude y no me diga nada

Rainy day raps

summertime feeling you, every little thing you do
state street ocean views, cruising in your lexus coupe
we is always riding blazed, living off the OG haze
bali for a couple days, too into you to be a phase
rule one: don’t get attached, fuck so good them niggas latched
fell in love can’t take it back, blame the gypsy spells for that
fell in love can’t take it back

Fellas leave ur girl wit her friendz

Lyrics of the day: “phantom”

(verse)
you come lay your head down
my thoughts crawl inside out
have you been sleep’n around
feel’n ev’ry beat my heart explores

(pre-hook)
acting out for attention, feigning for affection
using love as a weapon, i won’t if you don’t
but you doin’ it so well, i almost couldn’t (tell)
how you do it so well, i thought you wouldn’t

(hook)
you love me like you love somebody else
you love me like you love somebody else

(verse)
undressing me with your eyes, tainted love lined alibis
your hands on my thighs, takin’ me to paradise
how it was before the flood, was before the drugs,
was before the mess you sweepin’ under rugs

(pre-hook)
if you hold me tighter will you say it to my face
liar liar, wanna get higher, i won’t if you don’t
but you doin’ it so well, i almost couldn’t (tell)
how you do it so well, i thought you wouldn’t

(hook)
you love me like you love somebody else
you love me like you love somebody else

(bridge)
you just a phantom love
you just a phantom love
you just a phantom love
phantom love, phantom love, love
i feel it, now i can tell

(hook)
you love me like you love somebody else
you love me like you love somebody else
