New Music Monday 12/5 – The Round-Up

Music

After holidays & finals, I find my way back to Monday. Thank goodness the show doesn’t stop & new music is constantly making it’s way out. The exciting part about this new week is that it also a new month… the last one of the year at that! Not only do we get to gear up for round 2 of holiday season, but we also can start rounding up the year. No better way to kick off the week with a hot new playlist. Considering I didn’t curate a playlist the last couple of weeks, I doubled back to a few new singles that dropped before turkey day, all while including a few hot new releases.

There’s truly been so much great music being released, it’s hard to sit still. Be sure to check out a couple of albums also kept in rotation; from Quin’s fantasy soul-tastic “Galactica”, to “Free 6lack” evoking “ex problems”, and the latest from mutifaceted Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino, “Awaken, My Love!”

New Music Monday: 11/7

You know what time it is. Here’s to breaking in a new week, let alone a new month. This week, i’m making up for not bringing you a a playlist last Monday. Hopefully you’re still grooving to the “West Coast Wednesday” playlist. If you haven’t heard it yet, check it out.. Not only does it consist of all forms of the platform, there’s over an hour & a half of great music. That’s 36 opportunities to find your new “jam of the week”, let alone the month. 
You know what to do, hit shuffle, zone out & enjoy!

New Music Monday 8/18: Word of Mouth

Music

Back at it with your “New Music Monday” fix! After giving you over two hours of heavy hitting, bass thumping, summer vibes with the Hello August playlist, I wanted to mellow you out with something you can groove to. This weeks playlist is mostly curated of songs suggested by “word of mouth”.
The older I get, the more I realize that I’m no good with small talk and conversation fillers. There is one universal subject that I use to help break any type of ice, and that gem is MUSIC. I may fumble over my words asking “What do you like to do for fun?”, or even draw a blank when you tell me you go to college & I forget to ask “What are you studying?” With music, I pull up the “notes” in my phone, hand it you, and ask for you to “put me on”.
I won’t go so far as to say that music makes the person, but I can say it’s a great way to get a glimpse into the different worlds we let ourselves get lost in. As for me, the excitement of discovering new artists and melodic mix-ups, far surpasses the discomfort of breaking the ice. So, if you’re ever at a lost for a conversation piece, start asking about music & be open to what you receive.
Thank you to everyone who contributed their amazing suggestions!
Until next time.
