Music Mondays #11

It’s the first day of a new week, in what has been a crazy year (that’s for sure!), so I thought I’d ease you in with another Music Mondays post. If you’re new to this series of posts, or you’re new to this blog, I use these posts to share the songs I’ve been listening to at the moment – in the hopes I might just inspire someone to give a new song, or a new artist, a listen.

Last week, I filled the playlist with fun, (mostly) new releases. This week, it’s a mix of old and new (to me).

Magic Bronson, Golden

The duo are new to me but I loved the experimental feel to their music.

This song definitely appeals to the COVID-19 induced side of me that just wants to get out, get drunk and dancing with my friends as soon as we’re allowed.

JAWS, Driving at Night

The Birmingham based trio are not new to me – though I’ll admit I’m a few years late to this album (and song) – but this isn’t a song I’ve heard.

The album is about feeling lost and the opening track definitely captures this, whilst also being easy to listen to.

Father John Misty, To R

Admittedly Father John Misty is new to me but the slow burning track feels familiar.

The track – coupled with To S – is somber but it makes you focus your attention on the vocals and piano/guitar melodies.

Temples, Paraphernalia

Temples are a band I’m familiar with but – up until recently, again big thanks to my brother and his playlist – I’d never heard this track.

This song is full of fun and the good vibes I think we all need at the moment. It’s one of those songs I think deserves to be played a lot.

Gerry Cinnamon, Ghost

Gerry Cinnamon isn’t new to me, either (I’ve even seen him live, when concerts were a thing!), but this track is a new release.

This song is fun, catchy and will definitely be a crowd pleaser – once crowds are allowed!
