I can honestly say, ALL my friends fall into at least one of the categories if not more. Believe it or not, there are a few douchey hipsters *cough* Nic *cough* ;) Doesn’t really say a lot about the company I keep, does it? Depending on the day (and amount of alcohol), I’m also guilty of these clichés.
Mikey Bolts and Josh Leyva (the sexy shirtless one) filmed a brilliant video describing the five archetypes of guys on Instagram. According to him, they are: the douchebags; hipsters; fitness guys; deep inspirational guys and wannabe gangsters. As all encompassing as his list is, he forgot the type that loves to photograph the meals they eat. You know what I’m talking about. Guilty as charged. Check out the clip below.
I’ve been obsessed with these girls for a few months now, and get unnecessarily excited when they come out with anything new, whether it be song or video. I just realized yesterday that I haven’t posted about them at all, and now that they’re quickly nearing hipster royalty, I should really introduce you to, if you haven’t already heard, HAIM.
These three sisters, Este, Danielle, and Alana, only started releasing singles last year, but being the new kids on the block haven’t stopped them from growing underground notoriety at a rapid pace. All of a sudden my Songza is playing them and I realize they’ve arrived.
After already being on tour with people like Edward Sharpe, Mumford and Sons, Florence + The Machine, and Ke$ha, these girls don’t have a full length album yet, but one is scheduled for release this year, to be vague, and the fans (me) can’t wait for the 80’s influenced pop to continue. Every single they’ve released has been absolutely epic, and below is my absolute favorite to date still “Don’t Save Me“, along with an amazing follow up that just debuted a couple months ago “Falling“.
I’m pretty sure these ladies have a sound I haven’t quite pinned down or been able to completely compare anything to with some great harmonies and haunting vocals and a whole lot of retro keyboard. I’m stoked to see their careers blossom.
