FRESHVIBESMONDAY #40



It's MONDAY & I miraculously have the day off - so of course this week's version is going to be extra amazing. New Caribou, New Interpol (which is unfortunately not available in our country as of right now, C'MON. Also - new Charli XCX, new Tennis (who have a fall tour coming up with Pure Bathing Culture, hopefully see y'all at the Troubador) and it fortunately doesn't end there. Saved the chillest for last aka when you're ready to turndown for Tuesday with new tunes from Peaking Lights (who have an album coming out in October) & added a couple songs from Ryan Hemsworth's "SHH Secret Songs" series, (head over here to hear them all.) 
As the week goes on and more releases start to surface - they'll be added on here, so watch this space! 

If you haven't heard already, you still have time to enter for a wristband to FYF Fest this upcoming weekend. Yep, you heard it correctly. You + The Strokes + Future Islands + Interpol + HAIM + every other amazing band in the world all in one setting (LA Exposition & State Park.) For the 411 on how to enter, click here.

P.S. Shoutout to the "Timehop" app for bringing back this image into my life that I captured nearly 2 years ago on East Beach in Santa Barbara.

FYF FEST GIVEAWAY!


GUESS WHAT? LYED WANTS YOU TO HAVE THE BEST WEEKEND EVER WITH THE BEST BANDS EVER. WHERE? FYF FEST, DUH. 
What is FYF FEST? Besides being one of the festivals in California with one of the best lineups to date, FYF is a festival that's not too small & not too big (yet.) It's at the LA Sports Arena & Exposition Park, which is a change from being consistently held at the LA State Historic Park, but guess what? IT'S SOLD OUT! This lineup has quite the variety from bringing back The Blood Brothers (who clearly don't need an introduction) as well as Caribou, Future Islands, Phoenix, I mean, I could go on for days, but I'll let the picture speak for itself (and it's saying that it's AWESOME.)
If you've answered yes, guess what - this is one of two ways you can enter the contest.  Write on the Facebook Wall for LYED & be sure to include 3 acts that you're dying to see at FYF Fest & why, plus your e-mail address! Boom. You're entered. 
We'll give you a minute to collect yourselves & create the perfect answer. (Head over to the Facebook page when you're ready. )


If you're too cool for Facebook, but have an Instagram account? No worries! Be sure to follow LYED on Instagram (@_emiLYED) & here's what you can do to enter. Share the photo above on your account and be sure to tag @_emiLYED & include #LYEDFYF in the caption! That's all folks!

*REMEMBER, YOU CAN ENTER ONE WAY OR ANOTHER, BUT IT INCREASES YOUR CHANCES IF YOU DO BOTH!
Good Luck! (You have until Monday at midnight to enter!)
