If you need more than just a large cup of black coffee to get you going on this rainy-turned-disappointingly-sunny Monday, I’ve got just the fix!
My 18-song selection for this week’s New Music Monday is totally upbeat and perfect for putting you in the mood for a positive work week.
Carly Rae Jepsen teamed up with one of my favorite acts The Knocks on “Love Me Like That,” Tinashe and her consistently sexy vocals shine on “Ride of Your Life,” Don Diablo‘s remix of Birdy‘s “Keeping Your Head Up” will have you on your feet and Me & My Toothbrush impresses yet again with their signature disco-infused sound on “Living for the Moment.”
Click the playlist below for the full list, which also includes Autograf, Fifth Harmony, Rameses B, Tritonal, Way Out West, Pr0files and – blast from the past – Mya!
We all know Mondays can be brutal, but hearing Wolfgang Gartner and Bobby Saint‘s new track “Unholy” makes me want to jump out of bed and hit the gym, getting my week started off just right! The melodic tune is heavy on the disco and (thankfully) light on the bass – an easy listen for anyone!
Cut Copy put together a nice little treat for their fans. The four-man synthpop group compiled Oceans Apart, a 19-song collection by artists who are currently popular in their hometown Melbourne, but not particularly known in the states. I’m loving Knightlife‘s “Don’t Stop.”
I’m totally impressed with Jasmine V‘s “Walk Away,” from her just-released That’s Me Right There EP. The song is the perfect combo of R&B, dubstep and everything in-between. In other words, definitely not boring.
I’m kind of loving everything this week. Haim lending their voices on Calvin Harris‘s “Pray to God” is golden, as is RAC‘s always-dependable remixing skills on Young & Sick‘s “Ghost of a Chance.” And I have no idea where Pr0files, Huntar and Niia came from, but their music is quite pretty and very fall-y (even if the weather is not!).
