What Your Favorite Album of 2012 Says About Your NYE Plans

PST is always late as fuck to tha party, so last night I decided to play a silly game on Twitter while I waited for that big, sparkly ball to drop. Some friends joined in. I think I got more creative the more I drank. Here’s a recap in all it’s glory. Happy 2013.

Taylor Swift - Red

Fully decorated party at a friend’s house, lots of flirty glances and super innocent midnight kisses. Home before 2.

SchoolboyQ - Habits & Contradictions

Whitegurl wasted at a club w/your friends. One night stand is def happening later 

Kendrick Lamar - good kid, m.A.A.d city

watching in the corner, tweeting, watching all the one night stands taking shape.

                    -via @paezpumarL

Hundred Waters - Hundred Waters

Homemade cider and crafts at a friends house. Instruments and pets welcome!

Grimes - Oblivion

Music industry party. All the girls have bangs. Everyone’s talking about 2013’s Grimes. Grimes is there.

Japandroids - Celebration Rock

House party w/your closest friends from college. Some married. Did u see that touchdown 2day?!?

Dirty Projectors - Swing Lo Magellan

Vegan potluck at a friend of a friend’s. Someone made Kombucha. Weird vibes, great weed.

Andy Stott - Luxury Problems

Warehouse party Andy Stott is playing. Was SO hard 2 find & the bathrooms are terrifying. Drugs.

Chromatics - Kill For Love

Drinks & nibbles with close friends. Two bottles of champagne will be plenty. Early brunch plans tomorrow.

A response:  I think there’s definitely a later night involved with that record. Definitely a drive too.

My response: Duh, she’s ovulating.

Lil Ugly Mane - Mista Thug Isolation

Bunch of punk kids sip lean and take their moms beat up car out for a joyride

        -via 

Hot Chip - In Our Heads

This is the best party ever. These dj’s are great, it’s open bar AND I have a ride home #win #lovemylife 

Evian Christ - Kings and Them

You’re definitely not 21, and this isn’t you in the picture.

Lukid - Lonely At The Top (my pick)

Random dinner, party, bar, drinks, friends, fucked up, fuzzy feelings, just another night.

Joy Orbison - Ellipsis

Swanky dinner + bars. You: I feel like the food in Europe is better. Everyone: Just move there already.

DUCK HOUSE All three songs they have on their Soundcloud

Sexy, funk-splashed harmonies do a lil’ dance for a rhythm section cloaked in a synth-haze afterglow. Dem guitar lines. Do that thing you do, you know you know…

MIXTAPE MONDAYS: Slowed & Throwed 3: Slow Summer Scissoring

WCW: it’s fucking 2 hours long, like wtf are we doing

Dre: like you need a lot of booze and drugs and a limo

WCW: that’s what we are doing

Dre: if i was fucked up with some friends, no joke, this is what I would put on

I feel like the prettiest girl at the ball. William Cody Watson and Cough Cool’s collab project known as “Scissoring” heard my cries for more hip hop heavy chilled out sex beats and calmed those woes with a mix overflowing with what us old folks call “real rap music” that’s been slowed the fuck down…and they made it JUST FOR ME. It’s really just what the Dr. (Dre) ordered.

Tracklist:

Guys do me a favor and get that fucking limo, I’m coming with you…

GITNB’s Guide to SXSBest Weeek Ever 2012 Pt II: Guide to SXSW Guides

I put together a little mixtape of 50 acts I plan on checking out at this year’s fest. Even if you’re not heading to Austin, these are names you should get to know, and hopefully you find some new you dig. Check out the mix HERE.
With so many guides to SXSW out there, how do you decide which list is right for you? You don’t. For part two of my SXSBest Week Ever guide I decided to create a GUIDE TO SXSW GUIDES that includes everything from show listings, free booze, best of Austin eats, and any other list you can think of to make this year’s SX the best week EVER. I will be doing SXSW party coverage + live tweeting from @itsadredogg as well as for the UK blog The 405, so be sure to follow me there! Good luck, enjoy and don’t die. 

Dre’s Essentials
Flask
As much as they say all the booze at SX is free, well that’s only half true. Plus how many Sweet Tea Vodka’s can you drink before you feel like puking? Save yourself the energy and your lunch and get saucy on your 20 minute walk to the venue. There are liquor stores conveniently located just about everywhere to ensure you can refuel throughout the day.
B100
This complex vitamin made up of mostly B6, B12, Thiamin and Folic Acid is what celebrities get shots of when they have to perform but are feeling like shit. It’s great for sluggish mornings, sobering you up if you got drunk too quickly, and just feeling on top of your game. These are my lifeline.
GroupMe App for Smartphones
Lost your room key? Can’t find your friends? Just made out with Twin Shadow in a hotel bathroom? There’s free Jameson at the KEXP party? Stay connected with your entire group of friends with this smartphone app. Making memories and staying connected in real time has never been more fun. Shit gets hilarious.
Instagr.am
We love to overshare. Why not do it with #hashtags and photoshop.
Hype Machine Hype Hotel
Great bands. THE schoomze fest to see and be seen at. Party goes till 4am + free booze and Taco Bell that never ends.
Fader Fort
Don’t be that asshole that didn’t RSVP and has to wonder around Austin alone because you think The Fader has gotten too corporate. At the very least the free booze that never runs out is well worth it. Plus your friends are going with or without you.
Map
Austin isn’t that big, but when filled with thousands of festival goers, pop-up tents set up just about everywhere, and events spread out all over the city, it’s easy to get lost and miss your party/show entirely. No matter how direction savvy you are, a map is always a good thing to carry during a festival of this size. Here a few options.

Dre’s Soundcloud Picks of the Week: Bitches Be Hawt Edition w/Beat Connection and Chelsea Scheffe, fLako & Brokenchord, Falcon Lake, Slava, Elegant Animals, U.T.R.B., Germany Germany and Steffaloo, maundrie fox, and CLU and Simon Bird

Cuz they are… I’ve been getting all kinds of inspired by these fashion spreads with ideas for my 2012 SXSW look. These Soundcloud picks were my fashion lookbook soundtrack this week. I could have easily written a post about each one of the songs below, but I’m trying to be all indie and hip and leave these tracks to the major leagues.

If you’ve already heard all these jamz,  you win a million lyfe points, which is just enough to buy you a ticket to get the fuck up off your computer and go do something else for a change. If you haven’t heard all of these sparkling gems before, I hope you find something you dig.

fLako & Brokenchord - Come Back As A Flower

Elegant Animals - Syndicate

Slava - Whirlpool

Germany Germany - Disconnect feat. Steffaloo

U.T.R.B. - Pressure

CLU - What Can I Say? (Simon Bird Remix)

maundrie fox - forest floor

Falcon Lake - Shores

Beat Connection - Think/Feel (Feat. Chelsea Scheffe)
