Music Monday - Finger Eleven, Glass Animals, Belle and Sebastian, Gary Clark Jr, The Jam

If you’re feeling a little lovesick or perhaps a little melancholy and want to wallow in that space, here’s a song that I heard for the first time this morning that fits that bill.

They are Canadian, eh?

Alternatively, if you’re feeling amorous, I must make the recommendation to listen to this:

The video isn’t what I expected; but how can you pass up lyrics like “Mind my wicked words and tipsy topsy slurs”?

The new Belle and Sebastian album will be out in January. The first single “The Party Line” is already playing on KXT.

Another week with a great dance moves video!

Now let’s say you just threw an AMAZING party and wanted to keep that happy vibe going?

This would be the beat to get the folks on the dance floor. I really want to blare this song at max volume but I don’t think Elsa Cat or Neavesy would appreciate it.

And finally, cause I like to end on another happy song…

When will new wave / mod start making it’s comeback? Or maybe it’s already here? *Cross fingers*

Music Monday - Modjo "Lady"

It has been 14 years since I've listened to this song.
At the time, I was hanging out in Amsterdam making reckless decisions and enjoying being young.
It's a wonder I made it back in one piece.

While waiting in a bar to meet up with folks before the Mavs game, it came on the speakers and I Shazaam'd it so that I wouldn't forget.
Fantastic dance tune to start off your week.

Music Monday - "North Side Gal" by JD McPherson

Aloe Blacc with "Ticking Bomb"

Its a little macabre for a Monday morning, though I do like the song for a certain type of mood. Especially if you're angry and need to let off some steam.

Reuben And The Dark with "Can't See The Light"

While the music is more upbeat, it's also a strikingly sad message. "Love is not a pretty word".

"From Eden" by Hozier

Well, I am now THREE for THREE on messages that are Debbie Downers. What was going on with me and my recent Shazams?

"North Side Gal" by JD McPherson

Now THAT'S the song to start off the week!

And one more, because it's super dope.
"Busy Earnin'" by Jungle

Those dance moves are crazy good - I want to learn the routine!

Music Monday - "Neckbrace" by Ratatat

Hello and happy Monday.

The birds are both Hitchcock-ian terrors and mesmerizing at the same time.

Music Monday - "I Like It" by TEAM

I heard this song about 11 days ago on KXT; within moments I decided than not only did I like the song, but I LOVED it.

It reminds me a little of Vampire Weekend, but not exactly. They hail from here in Dallas, Texas. Go check them out!
Currently on tour with Barcelona, they will be back here on November 13th.

Music Monday: "Work It Out" by Knox Hamilton AND "Count On You" by Christian Gregory

I'm in a GREAT mood! Maybe it is my new workmates (who are awesome and hysterical) and approach life in a positive way. I have to say that I couldn't have hand-selected a better group of people.

Perhaps its from the endorphins from the added workouts I've put into my schedule. That's right. 60+ minutes each day, whether I puke or not, I'm doing this!

With that, here are two options to start your week:

For Neavesy and I, this is what we are grooving to this morning...

I mean, how can you not love something that starts off with a xylophone?
And while both of us are in committed relationships and the lyrics aren't quite right, the beat and chorus have us bouncing about.

Happy Monday y'all!

Music Monday - "Secrets" by Mary Lambert

Hello my three readers.  We have a couple of options today, depending on your mood.

If you woke up a little grumbly and moody, this might be the one for you:

Or if you want to check out something from a local Denton artist that might get you bouncing your head and tapping your feet... try this:

But ultimately, this is the song for today:
