One of the exciting things about getting back to school is seeing how people changed over the summer (i.e. who's looking good) and with that comes the inevitable crushes on cuties in the classroom, dining hall and dorms. For Day 4 of our Back to School Playlist we're equipping you with music to go along with with your new romantic interests.
Is that a yes? If we caught your attention up until here, then we've got some great free music for you to check out. A couple days back we highlighted Bumbershoot's soul and roots lineup. This year's hip-hop roster is just as impressive. Not only does it include Big Boi and Wiz Khalifa, but emerging talent as well. Champagne Champagne anyone?
Our ears are still vibin' to yesterday's free MP3 from soul music veteran Charles Bradley--who is scheduled to perform at this year's festival amongst other jazz & soul highlights. But for those looking to do more than just some toe-tapping, allow us to suggest some stellar electronic acts performing at this year's Bumbershoot.
Fair to say that Canada’s had more than its fair share of successful indie-rock exports over the last few years, with the likes of Arcade Fire, The New Pornographers and Broken Social Scene waving the red and white at shows around the world.
There might be some chill in the air (waving fists in the air at old mean Hurricane Irene), but summer festival season is not over yet. Whether you're going to Seattle or not, check out this year's impressive Bumbershoot lineup (Daryl Hall & John Oates anyone?). Update your music collection (did we say it's free?), go back to school, and impress your friends with all that was hot at this year's festival.
