local natives songs

Grammy nominated alt dance duo SOFI TUKKER took the world by storm this year. While I eagerly wait to see who takes home the dance album trophy on Sunday night (San Francisco’s own Tycho is in the running too!) I’m hoping to make it to SOFI TUKKER’s long sold out show at the Independent in San Francisco tonight. The buzz surrounding the show is just mind blowing, and having caught Sophie and Tucker plenty of times before both in San Francisco and Austin, I predict their performance to more than live up to the hype. San Francisco, prepare for a dance party, a mighty fine one, at that. In the meantime, rev yourselves up with this unexpected but oh so sumptuous remix of Local Natives’ Dark Days by the LA based pair. They give the song a bounteous injection of vigorous bouncing Latin spice. I can bet on it you’ve never heard, or danced to, Local Natives quite this way. Alternatively, you can stream the edit on Soundcloud below. 

Rules: tag several blogs you’d like to know better.

Nickname: Maddy, Mads, Mad, Mad Dog, Madster,

Zodiac sign: Pisces

Favorite music artist: Changes but at the moment I am really digging Madeon and the Local Natives

Song stuck in my head: Don’t Recall by K.A.R.D

Last movie you watched: I think it was Doctor Strange. It was pretty good actually I love films with cool special effects. They make me geek out, plus I’m a comics fan so…

What are you wearing right now: A pink sleep top with blue polka dot sleep pants.

What do you post: Hmm… I do A LOT of reblogging. I do post art and writing too though. Most of my posts are Pokémon, Voltron, Steven Universe and whatever else I’m into at the moment.

Why did you choose your URL: I love the saying “eat my shorts” from The Simpsons and The Breakfast Club and that was taken so I added Pokémon in there since it’s something I love and post about.

Do you have any other blogs: Yup. I run a blog called incorrectpokemonquotes, I have a Pokémon fankid blog called pkmn-nextgenheroes, and another one I keep private and don’t advertise here.

What did your past relationship teach you: I’ve actually never been in a relationship before, despite the fact that I turn 19 in less than a month. I’ve never been on a date, nothing. The reasons for this include but are not limited to the following, I have actual diagnosed social anxiety, I have never met anyone I was interested in, no one has expressed interest in me, I spent most of my high school time in hospital in and outpatient programs.

Religious or spiritual: Religious. I’m a fairly liberal Christian. My dad teaches religion, logic, philosophy at universities so I’m pretty well versed in a few belief systems.

Favorite color: I like any shade of blue

Average hours of sleep: Depends, I’m an insomniac so it varies.

Favorite character: Fuck man… this is hard. I have a lot but at the moment the one that sticks out is 100% Jasper from Steven Universe.

How many blankets do you sleep with: Two. My duvet and my baby blanket :)

Dream job: Storyboard artist or author maybe an animator.

Board games, table top, or video games: Video games obvs. But I do love a good game of CLUE.

Do you have any OCs: As stated above, I have plenty of OCs over on my fankid blog.

One thing you wish was canon in fiction/fandom: I MISS JASPER AND I WANT HER BACK ON THE SHOW

Favorite thing to draw/write/think about: When it comes to writing I don’t gravitate to any particular genre and I’ve written a lot of different types. I like to write complex and imperfect characters though, so long as I’m writing good characters I enjoy writing any genre. As for art I’ve always been partial to cartooning but every once in a while I’ll whip out the ole charcoal and do a still life or something.

The strangest song you like: My music tastes are all over the place… I think a really weird and interesting song that I suppose could be considered strange is Bathtub Mermaid by Mili
