Live Blogging: Starbucks x Giraffage [Thursday, 8:54 PM]

I’m sitting in Starbucks right now in Midtown drinking my regular that has been my [keep me going] lately (Caramel Soy Macchiato) and felt like listening to some new music while I get some work done soooooo, I log onto soundcloud to see what some of my favorite artists that I follow suggest. I come across a name that caught my attention, clicked the thumbnail picture and pressed play to a song entitled “Close 2 Me” by Giraffage. At approximately 18 seconds in, the beat drops and just that quick, the search is over…

A few moments later I am on Google doing my research to find out more about who is responsible for the vibrations coming through my headphones. Giraffage is the name and is the creation of multi-instrumentalist and producer Charlie Yin of San Fran, California. Nostalgia is what I am feeling right now and although I can’t come up with the exact words to describe the many sounds he has created, I know I like it. It just so happened that he released his new mixtape “Needs” yesterday, which is downloading this very second. I’m going to finish this work, continue to drink this coffee and welcome these new soundwaves to my iTunes library. I felt it was worth sharing so below you can take a listen too. Oh yeah, Happy Valentines Day!
