Ring in the New Year (and recover from the last) with the 1st Mixtape Monday of 2018!
My Top 5 Music Obsessions of the Day :: 3/2/17 Listen here at Spotify Thursday morning. Sleepy, but smiling. I need strong coffee and music to keep me going. Counting the days for the weekend. A trip away, a show to see, the best of company. Right now though, on this Thursday morning, its strong coffee and music, and smiling. We'll start with a new discovery band (thanks, Paul Weller, for the in-interview mention) from Canterbury, then its some melodic/electronic/sonic star-wandering music from Portishead. From that I have Arcade Fire reminding me to "Wake Up", widening my eyes and gliding right into Razorlight's "Golden Touch". Last, but not least, The Easybeats sing about "Friday on My Mind" (though its really Saturday, on mine). You can click to listen to each video below, or choose the Spotify link to listen to the My Top 5 Song Obsessions of the Day :: Top Five playlist. I will add each five songs shared to the playlist each day.
Top 5 New Releases :: New Music Friday :: February 3, 2017 Wondering what new is out there in the musical ether on this New Music Friday? For this first February Friday my Top 5 New Releases include a heavily anticipated movie soundtrack for T2: Trainspotting Two, an equally waited for new album from emotionally complex, and melodic, Elbow, a melodically pleasing project by the eternally wonderful Paul Weller (with a little help from his friends), an anthemic, ready for radio play new single from Depeche Mode, and a ready for the dance floor new single from Goldfrapp. It is a turn it up -- way up -- kind of Friday...this week.
