New Music Monday: Moon Taxi and Goodbye June

It's Monday and you know what that means: new music! If you haven't already, you definitely need to add Moon Taxi and Goodbye June to your radar because they're currently killing the music scene.

Moon Taxi, an indie-alternative rock band based out of Tennessee, has been gaining momentum since their humble beginning in 2006 when Trevor Terndrup, Tommy Putnam, Spencer Thomson, Tyler Ritter, and Wes Bailey started the band while at Belmont University. After the successful release of four incredibly well-received albums, the band continues to deliver music that they feel will one, be appreciated by their fanbase, and two, have a positive effect on society. They've just finished their "Put Em Up" tour but they're currently gearing up to play shows in Olso, Norway and Stockholm, Sweden. After those shows, they'll be returning to the states in early December to play the Ogden Theatre in Denver, Colorado, and then later the iconic venue The Tabernacle in Atlanta, Georgia.

Their newest release, "Two High", has over 64 million streams on Spotify and offers up cool electronic beats that make the song so easy to listen, and jam to. Though released in the fall, there's a definite summer vibe about this song that makes it clear it will stick around. The music video itself shows happy scenes of both the band and their fans living life, both at their shows and elsewhere. This song encourages peace which is a big theme of the video itself with the band, and their fans throwing up peace signs. To watch this video (Click Here).

Goodbye June, like Moon Taxi, is also based out of Nashville, Tennesse. Relatively new to the rock band scene cousins, Landon Milbourn, Brandon Qualkenbush, and Tyler Baker were signed by Interscope Records in June of 2016. Don't let their "rookie" status fool you, with their song "Good Side" it's clear that even though they're newbies they can still run with the big dogs. With a following of over 400,000 followers and 15 million and growing streams on Spotify, they're making a solid name for themselves. Goodbye June is going to be touring throughout December joined by rock bands, Whiskey Myers and Greta Van Fleet. They'll be playing a hometown show in Nashville, Tennesse on the 13th of December which will no doubt be a special experience.

Their new music video for "Good Side", which you can access (here) offers up psychedelic rock vibes and equally catchy beats. Their debut album, Magic Valley is available for streaming on YouTube, Spotify, and Pandora.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.
