namaste1w

Do you ever feel completely freakin’ exhausted after a long week?  Are you so happy that Friday afternoon has arrived and all you want to do for the next few hours is chill?  Are you looking for perfect cool and relaxing playlist to make your Friday sweet?  Well this Friday Fixat10ns playlist is just what you need.  We at 4E  are concerned about your inner peace, your inner chakra as I like to call it.  So do yourself a favor and just listen.

Namaste

1. East Coast Girl- Cayucas. This ultimate poppy indie band hailing from Southern California will have you thinking about sun, palm trees, and the beach in no time.  Even though this song is called East Coast Girl, it still truly gives off some good vibes.

2. Always – Panama. Hitting an even more calming note, Always by Panama takes on an eclectic dramatic tune.  Oh how this song is so perfect for ultimate relaxation.

3. Naked Kids- Grouplove. Ahhh, my favorite hippy group!  I love them, purple hair and all.  This song will also have you wishing you were “cruisin’ down the highway, with your friends topdown”.  Summer is coming soon, kids! Don’t worry.

4. Hollywood – RAC. Although I usually add this tune to my pre-game playlist, it’s also great for some background noise. RAC has recently popped up more within the poppy indie scene as their sound has a harmonious combination of pop and

5. Wide Eyes- Local Natives. If you haven’t heard of them, they two have a great sound and a quirky flair.  If Wide Eyes does not help you find your inner chakra, then I don’t know what will.

6. Modern Jesus – Portugal. The Man. I’ve always been taken by Portugal. The Man’s luring and intense lyrics, but their sound is also something to take note of. Modern Jesus may leave you feeling quite pensive.

7. Climbing Walls – Strange Talk. I randomly stumbled upon this tune a while back on Youtube and figured it should make the list. It’s super catchy, so watch out.

8. October – Broken Bells. I love Broken Bells because they are composed of the same artist/producer of The Shins, another band with beautifully constructed songs.

9. Phantom Limbs – The Shins. Have you found that ultimate relaxed level yet? After 8 songs, I think you have to be almost there! Just keep listening, just keep listening!

10. The Suburbs – Arcade Fire. You’ve probably heard of these guys as they have been making the festival rounds over the last few years. This particular song is just the right amount of chill.

Well I really hope this playlist did the trick to relax you! Enjoy your weekend, fellow Hoyas!

Friday Fixat10ns: Where Has The Time Gone?

I don’t know if you’ve been keeping track, but this is the last weekend in January! Where has the time gone? Before we know it it’ll be time for Valentine’s Day, Alternative Spring Break Trips and Easter eggs! Take a second to enjoy the last few days of January with our 4E playlist.

End of Time – Beyoncé Kicking things off with my girl Queen B. Despite the rumors, we indeed will love her until the end of time.

4 Minutes To Save The World – Madonna ft. Justin Timberlake “Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock, tick tock”. But seriously…

Little of Your Time – Maroon 5 NO MAROON 5, I HAVE NO TIME TO GIVE. Just kidding, it’s Adam Levine so I have all of the time to give, but tell him to wait until after I turn in my Spanish paper.

Ready? O.K. – Matt and Kim NO MATT AND KIM, CONSULT MAROON 5, I’M NOT READY. How is it already the last weekend in January? Seriously?

Time Bomb – The Format Switching genres in this playlist a little bit and tossing in this 2008 favorite of mine. Nate Reuss may have moved from time bombs to ‘Some Nights’ but this song is just so applicable to my schedule.

Time Moves Slow – Grouplove Grouplove, I love you but you’re lying. Time moves way too fast and I can’t keep up. I do have some fond memories of listening to this song on my pensive drives to school though.

Backwards With Time – The Avett Brothers I’m going to be honest, I was kind of just looking for an excuse to put Avett in here and this song title lent itself pretty well to this theme.  Enjoy my boys Scott and Seth in their country-folk awesomeness.

Give Me Time – Dawes Taking the tempo of this playlist down a little with this crooning Dawes song. His voice can often make me take a deep breath between theology readings and, as he does, beg the world to give me time.

The Circle Game – Joni Mitchell “We’re captive on the carousel of time”. Yes, Joni. Yes.

Any Time At All – The Beatles Closing out the playlist with a classic. Though you may be stressed and pressed for time, you should know that The Fourth Edition will here to entertain you. Any time at all, all you’ve gotta do is call and we’ll be here.
