Yes, as promised, #MusicMonday is back for 2013 and will continue to roll out (universal forces permitting) on a weekly basis, just as it did throughout the second half of 2012. I’ll do my best to listen to as much different music as I can each week, and I’ll make a promise right here, right now, to share the best of what I hear, with you all each week.
So stick with me, tell your friends, and keep your eyes locked on your inboxes each & every Monday from now on!
Before I get started here, along with the new year comes a couple of new #MusicMonday2013 playlists for you to subscribe to. As always, I have set up playlists for rdio, Spotify and the new kid on the block SoundCloud, so pick your poison and dive in.
Just a quick note too… for those of you who previously subscribed to the #MusicMonday2012 playlist on Spotify, I’ve had to move that playlist to a new account following my departure from Facebook. You can now find the “as-complete-as-possible” 2012 list here: http://is.gd/JMa1wM
Ok, as you were. Enjoy.
1. “Lights Out, Words Gone” – Bombay Bicycle Club
Saw these guys play last week with Kirsten. They nailed this great track so I thought I’d dig into the archives and bring it back from 2011.
2. “Don’t Wanna Grow Up Anymore” – Bob Evans
Had to kick off 2013 by including this popular, easy listening track from former “Jebediah” frontman Kevin Mitchell, aka “Bob Evans”.
3. “The View” – Olympic Ayres
Are you guessing “Triple J Unearthed” artist? You guessed RIGHT! While they keep unearthing talented local Aussie artists, I’ll keep posting them!
4. “Flaggin’ A Ride” – Divine Fits
LOS ANGELES, USA
This offering from US rockers “Divine Fits” was definitely one of the most played tracks for me this week. Suffice to say, I think you’ll enjoy it!
5. “Down The Road” – C2C
Don’t let the overtly bluesy opening bars throw you from where this “Moby”-esque ditty takes your ears. Harmonica FTW!
