Monday is back again with all its highs and lows, traffic jams and to-do lists, tired eyes and double shots in your coffee. It is also the start of the week, the start of new things, your ready-made do-over day. So, let’s turn up some music, shall we? Are you ready to spin this Monday’s Top 5 Music Obsessions?
Song 1 is the first track off of St. Vincent’s fantastic new album, MASSEDUCATION. Have you heard the album yet? If not, you really should. “Hang on Me” is the start of her new album and the start of today’s Top 5. It flows perfectly into Primal Scream’s (Feeling Like A) Demon Again”, which seems so fitting for a Monday. Don’t you think? Wax Tailor, with Proleter’s “Ecstasy” (Proleter Remix), is track 3, and this one really needs to be turned WAY UP. Trust me on this. Alvvays “In Undertow” smoothes us out a bit with gorgeous vocals and Indie Pop goodness. Last, but certainly not least, is “Luminol”, a track off of Ryan Adams’ album Rock N Roll that I am re-discovering – in a big way – today. Maybe you’ll find yourself digging it again, too.
Join me and turn these 5 songs up. They will help you through today and motivate you to do something good for yourself today. Finish a project. Stay focused. Accomplish something. And, be nice to you.
