FAIRCHILDs “Stay Young (Midnight Mix)” has premiered on The Music Ninja. The “Stay Young (Midnight Mix)” is an exclusive track off of the North American release of ‘Sadako’ EP, which was released via OK!Good Records on November 18th.

The tune starts off with some fast-paced drum lines, soon to be driven by these delicate muted guitar melodies. Adam Lyons, the singer of the group, provides us with vocals that are pleasant and emotionally driven. The lyrics are nothing short of wonderful, as they appeal to the younger generation through a powerful message. With such positive energy in their music, Fairchild manages to create a sound that is refreshing and universal.” – The Music Ninja

Music For The Transit of Venus

The transit of Venus is a very rare celestial event in which the planet Venus can be seen crossing the path of the sun from Earth. Transits of Venus occur in pairs eight years apart separated by either 105.5 years or 121.5 years. The last Venus transit occurred in 2004, and the next pair won’t happen until 2117 and 2125, making this Tuesday/Wednesday, June 5th/6th everyone’s last chance to see the transit take place in their lifetimes.

The time the transit of Venus will be depends on your location on planet Earth. You can check this site to see if and when it will be visible to you. For people on the East coast of the US, the transit will take place towards the end of the day and will still be in progress at sunset.

Of course witnessing the event will be easier said than done. Simply starring into the sun would be a bad idea. Unless you have special sun viewing glasses or telescope with a solar filter, the best way to see the Venus traverse the sun will probably be on the NASA website, as they plan to cover the whole event live.

This event is so special I figured it warranted it’s very own playlist. So after some searching on Spotify it turns out that the 2nd rock from the sun has inspired a lot of music. I quickly went through the search results and picked out some of the best. The playlist has tracks from Bjork, Brandon Boyd, T. Rex and Red Hot Chilli Peppers, plus plenty of obscure tracks. So while you check out the transit, crank up the tunes and enjoy

Coachella 2012 Spotify Playlist – Our Picks

It’s April and that means both spring and great music are in the air in Southern California. Coachella is one of the biggest annual music festivals in the US and always has fantastic rock bands on the bill. This year is the first time the festival is being held over the course of 2 weekends. The first weekend of Coachella 2012 just completed with the next coming up April 20st -22nd.

The list of names on the Coachella 2012 bill is massive, spanning a broad range of genres from rock to rap to electronica. We thought the list of rock bands would make for a great Spotify playlist, so we went ahead picked out some of our favorite artists to share with the world. And since none of us could be at Coachella this year, we figure listening to the bands on Spotify is the next best thing.

You can find this and our other Spotify playlists on ShareMyPlaylist.com. Also feel free to go to our Spotify profile and send playlists and songs to our inbox.

Check Out OK!Good Spotify playlists and The New Spotify Buttons

Spotify playlists are becoming all the rage these days. They’re kind of like the modern day version of the mix tape, except they’re easier to compile and share. This past week, Spotify came out with their new music button, which we think is going to catapult the popularity of their playlists sky high. The new button allows you to embed playlists right into your website. The only draw back is that if you don’t already have the Spotify program on your computer, you’ll have to download it and launch it before you can hit play on a Spotify button. This will likely become less of an issue as the program becomes more ubiquitous.

So we’re excited to try this out on our blog for the first time. Here’s a button for our latest Spotify playlist: Bands Named After Food – Hungry? Here’s a whole playlist full of bands who’s names are themed around food. Feed your ears.

Please subscribe and share with your friends.
