Shaun Frank, Satin Jackets, Penguin Prison & 13 More Artists: New Music Monday, 5.11.15

May 11, 2015

ShaunFrankSome of my favorites (Satin Jackets, Penguin Prison, Pompeya) are making the start to the week a little brighter with contributions to my latest New Music Monday playlist.

While they seem to be regulars on my weekly lists, I am newly digging Toronto-based producer Shaun Frank‘s groovy synth melodies in his latest track “Time,” which – like the title – takes you back to a different era!

To take things down a notch, give a listen Aquilo‘s soulful “Put Me Down,” Avivaa‘s “PRiSM,” or Henry Green‘s “Barcelona.”

And then you’ve got chart-topper Ciara back with the sexy debut single from her latest album Jackie, called “Dance Like We’re Making Love.”

Check out the playlist below, which also includes fresh tracks by Gypsy & the Cat, Parade of Lights, Make the Girl Dance, Made in Heights and more!



Mark Ronson, Henry Saiz & More: New Music Monday, 1.5.15

January 5, 2015

Mark-Ronson-DaffodilsHere’s hoping all of you had a delightful kickoff to 2015!

Musicians must still be in holiday season recovery mode, because it’s a pretty slow week for New Music Monday. That said, what better way to start off the year than with a fresh tune by one of the UK’s most handsome gems? Mark Ronson teamed up with Tame Impala‘s Kevin Parker for “Daffodils.”

In addition, there are four other songs, including “Haunted Girl Canyon” by Henry Saiz and “Pray” by The Erised that are sure to jumpstart your week just right. While winter is still in full swing, each of these super chill tracks are perfect for turning up the heater, warming up the hot cocoa (or maybe tea is more fitting for that new year diet!) and getting cozy under a thick blanket.

It’s exciting to think about what could be in store for music this year. Let’s just hope the selections are an improvement from the previous one! :X
