Music Mondays #14

How quick did another week go, and another Monday, roll around? As always, I’ll be sharing 5 of my latest listens – they can be single tracks or whole albums – in the hope that I might just inspire you to listen to something (or someone) new.

Last week, there were a lot of new releases (or at least releases that were new to me!) and there’s a similar feel to the 5 songs I’ve chosen this week.

Katy J Pearson, Fix Me Up

Katy J Pearson was a recent find for me and the single (from her first album, Return) Fix Me Up was a great introduction.

Pearson’s sound is similar to Jade Bird and Zuzu, two female artists I love. Fix Me Up has a country feel to it, with an irresistible pop hook and a voice that is captivating. I think it speaks to a generation of people who’re figuring out things on their own.

Mitski, Nobody

I’d never heard of Mitski but I loved the catchy, indie rock sound of this track – from her 2018 album Be The Cowboy.

I like the moody, pop sound to this song. Though it is essentially about isolation and loneliness, it’s a fun track I’ve played on repeat throughout 2020.

Blossoms, Under the Sun

Stockport based Blossoms have slowly become one of my favourite bands – with songs that sound just as good in packed venues as they do at my desk working from home.

Foolish Loving Spaces – the album they released in January this year (though it feels like a life time ago – has had an upgrade, as it features several new, previously unreleased tracks (including Under the Sun). This song is catchy, a combination of the soft drawl of their frontman Tom Ogden and the irresistible indie hooks crowds everywhere know and love the band for.

The Orielles, Sunflower Seeds

The Orielles aren’t new to me but this song, released in 2017, is.

Sunflower Seeds is a moody, indie rock tune with psychedelia laced through it – showing that they are a band who aren’t afraid to push the boundaries where music is concerned.

Becca Mancari, Hunter

I’d never heard of Becca Mancari, the Nashville based singer-songwriter, prior to including her in one of my Music Mondays posts but this song, taken from her 2020 album Greatest Part, is a great introduction.

The track is a mix of catchy guitar riffs, intensifying drums and teasing, bluesy vocals.
