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!
