#Musicmonday – #050

FIFTY… #MusicMonday turns the big FIVE-O today! Can you believe it? Can you believe that you’ve managed to pay attention, or that I have had the patience to keep the tunes coming for this long?

Fittingly, I LOVE this week’s selection below. As is often the case, there’s a few new tunes from emerging Aussie artists, and a couple of great tracks out of ol’ Blighty and the US of A, including a killer cover of a 90’s anthem.

Take your ears off their leash. Go forth, and enjoy.

1. “That Loneliness” – Jagwar Ma

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA

It’s a big, bold call, but “Jagwar Ma” may very well prove to be the “breakout Aussie act” of 2013 given the strength of the Sydney duo’s debut album “Howlin”, released earlier this month.

Not available on SoundCloud. Boo!

2. “Love Is Gone” – Oxford & Co.

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA

You know that rad feeling you get when the song you find yourself putting “on repeat” for the week, comes from a relatively unknown local band? This is it for me this week. Look for the killer changeup at 1:28min.

Not available on SoundCloud. Boo!

3. “What Is Love” – Jaymes Young

LOS ANGELES, USA

People of the 90’s, do you remember that iconic pop track “What Is Love?” by Haddaway? Meet young LA artist Jaymes Young. He’s turned the track into a moody, heartbreaking ballad. Perfect.


4. “Seen It All” – Jake Bugg

NOTTINGHAM, UK

Nominated in this year’s BRIT Awards for the “British Breakthrough Act” award, UK teenager Jake Bugg continues to release great tracks with a maturity well beyond his years.


5. “Listen to Soul, Listen to Blues” – Safia

CANBERRA, AUSTRALIA

I’m no big fan of “Hip Hop” – I’m sure that’s pretty evident if you look over the #MusicMonday archives. But once in a while, a beat-laden belter pops up that just gets stuck in my head. Just picture yourself by the pool, Mojito in hand, kicking back to the beats of “Smoke Trails” just loving life as the sun sets over another stunning Summer’s day. Yup. Love it.
