Josh Groban & Rob Cavallo: Performance of “Happy In My Heartache”

LP - Into the Wild

After being on the music scene for ten years, releasing two commercially unsuccessful independent albums, co-writing/being featured in tracks with artists like Rihanna, Christina Aguilera and Madonna and then releasing an EP in 2012, Laura Pergolizzi (LP) finally released a full length album this past June called Forever For Now and I have to say it has completely captured my attention. The most obvious thing to mention is her incredible voice that sets her apart from any artist I’ve heard in the last decade. Not only can she sing but she can also break into an operatic wail as featured in the title track, “Forever For Now" (it’s also the one that starts off like an audition for the soundtrack to Kill Bill Vol. 3). From start to finish, ukelele to drum beat, the songs crafted by LP and enhanced by Rob Cavallo’s artistic direction have been providing me continuous enjoyment. 

While “Night Like This" was the first song that made me fall in love, "Into The Wild" has quickly become my favorite track. Not only does it have the perfect amount of whistling but it truly captures a sense of freedom that comes from a longing to escape. Whether you’re jumping into the wild, the city, or a new stage of your life, this song perfectly captures that rush you feel as you take the jump when there’s nothing left to hold you back.

Always (Live Acoustic) - Switchfoot

These are the scars deep in your heart. This is the place you were born.

And this is the hole where most of your soul comes ripping out from the places you’ve been torn.

And it is always, always, always Yours. I am always, I’m always, I’m always Yours.

Hallelujah, I’m caving in. Hallelujah, I’m in love again. 

Hallelujah, I’m a wretched man. Hallelujah, every breath is a second chance.

The first five slamming tracks on ¡Uno!—the stomping "Nuclear Family," the yearning "Stay the Night," the fierce yet philosophical "Carpe Diem," the blistering call to arms "Let Yourself Go" and the funky-furious "Kill the DJ"—pack a musical wallop while probing emotionally complex territory. They’re five perfectly written, diverse examples of where Green Day is right now. Every time I hear those five songs I just wanna hear them again.

Short post on how we met Rob Fucking Cavallo last night.

It was at the EA show, and Me, Stephanie, Marissa, and Sabrina were hanging out. Then marissa saw rob cavallo pass us and she told us and we spazzed. Then he passed us again and we stopped him. Then we all told him how awesome he was and he said thanks and asked us if we were green day fans. We told him yeah we were and he then said something along the lines of “you guys will LOVE the new albums. They’re amazing.” then I think it was stephanie who asked him how did each one sound and Rob said “Uno is pure fun, then Dos is intense. Then it all escalates to Tre.” and he said something about Tre but I can’t remember right now. Then I told him he was great and when I found out he was producing the albums I was really glad and excited because I loved his previous work with green day and smiled and said thanks. Then he shook each of our hands and said goodbye and left. Then we stood there all giddy and excited because WE MET THE ROB CAVALLO. THE MAN WE ALL LOVE. and he was wearing shades and looking badass and super tall.
