Happy Monday and hope you had a marvelous weekend. If a case of the Mondays, at the office or elsewhere, is draggin you down early this week, fill up that coffee cup with some caffeinated serum and pop on this track from Chicago's Jeremih. This week's Happy Monday comes from Jeremih's 2012 mixtape Late Nights With Jeremih and it's a solid pick me up song whether it's Monday morning or Friday night.
Happy Monday, Happy November and welcome to post-Day Light Savings 2014. If you're having some trouble getting up and at it this Monday morning, "It's Time To Wake Up" from France's La Femme might help you out. If you're a fan of hypnotic Krautrock, it may be up your alley. The seven minute track slowly builds with a steady ease and solid beat. Mid-song introduces keys that are reminiscent of Velvet Underground's "Sunday Morning". While Sunday > Monday, happy Monday and here's La Femme "It's Time To Wake Up".
Happy Monday and welcome to the first full week of August 2014, folks. Hopefully your weekend included more summer sun & celebration. This week's Happy Monday track is Trentemøller "Vamp". "Vamp" arose on Anders Trentemøller's 2006 album The Last Resort. The track's fat bass line and minimal groove are a nice way to ease into your week with a lil zest. Also, shout out to anyone who recognizes this from the first season of Eastbound & Down.
Happy Monday, y'all. Don't know about you, but where I'm at, Spring is in full force and it's time to start celebrating your arrival. Shout out to all the NorEasterners, heard your winter was particularly brutal. Mac DeMarco's new Salad Days album is both excellent own it's own and especially fit for a spring release. So here's a live take of the album's "Let Her Go" performed at Edmonton's CKUA.
Happy Monday and Happy last week of February. Startin' the week out with some chill, glitchy London electronic with Four Tet. "Parallel Jalebi" here is a great track to have on while you're waiting for the caffeine to kick in this Monday. If you enjoy, stream the whole Beautiful Rewind album is you're looking to zone out into some low key bliss.
