Muddy Waters – Worried Mined

This week I thought I’d bring back a classic, McKinley Morganfield, also known as Muddy Waters, was an American blues musician, and a major inspiration for the British blues explosion of the 1960s. Why? because sometimes nothing suits the mood of the day like some classic blues guitar strumming.

Glass Animals – Pools

With their first album, Zaba, freshly realized in June of 2014 it is clear that Glass Animals has one heck of a career in front of them. Pools offers a feel good indie vibe, and if you are feeling it as much as I am you can listen and purchase the new album here .

L UD O – Boy

If you are enjoying L UD O’s somber tune reverb drenched tune, fear not you can find more of her music on her bandcamp for listening and to purchase! “Operating under the L UD O nom de plume, this Brighton based producer & singer/songwriter sees herself not as a painstakingly musical craftswoman but as a symbol of unabashed, unconventional creativity” (via L UD O soundcloud). So far, I’d have to agree!

M83 – Moonchild

This French electronic rock band from Antibes, France was formed in 2001 by Anthony Gonzalez and Nicolas Fromageau. The name M83 was taken from Messier 83, one of the brightest galaxies in our sky. And after listening to this spacey electric song, it is no wonder why they are named after this.

Of Monsters And Men – Yellow Light (Cillo Remix)

Indie folk single, Yellow Light, comes with a twist in this Cillo remix. With only one album released in 2012, when will we hear more from this band? Thank the music gods for remixes. Hey Of Monsters and Men, we want more!

The War On Drugs – Red Eyes

“Red Eyes” is the first single from the album Lost in a Dream released in March of this year. With its upbeat tune and 80’s like influences it is sure to have you dancing around the house in your underwear (because who wants to get ready on their day off?).

Disclosure – You & Me (Flume Remix)

“You & Me” is a song by British electronic garage-house duo Disclosure, featuring vocals from Eliza Doolittle. The release of this Flume remix also came with a steamy music video that probably shows the most passion between two people you ever saw without showing anything at all.

Childish Gambino – Centipede

Since the release of his debut album, Camp, in 2011 and his Royalty mixtape which featured the rap debut of Tina Fey ( listen here ), Gambino has been shifting his career from acting (watch Community , because it’s hilarious and amazing) to a strong musical career. This track was released as a free download before his most recent album Because the Internet .

Bad Sounds – Living Alone

​This demo song from duo Bad Sounds is exploding the musical airwaves after its first play on BBC Radio 1 on July 8th.

Vic Mensa – Down On My Luck

This hip hop artist from Chicago can’t get you moving this morning than I don’t know who can.

Guards- For You

This hidden treasure is an Indie rock band that began in 2010 and released its debut album "In Guards We Trust" in 2013.

MSMR-Think of You (RAC Remix)

You may have heard the bands debut single "Hurricane" released April 26, 2012, but if you haven't listened to their Album "Secondhand Rapture" in full, your are severely missing out. Lead Vocalist Lizzy Plapinger, packs all the passion of a Florence Welch on the rise and is equally adorable! AND if this RAC remix does not jump start your work flow I do not know what will.

Cold War Kids- All This Could Be Yours

The Cold War Kids are no stranger to new to the music scene having been dishing out musical gold like "Hang Me Up to Dry" (2006) since the band was formed in 2004. “All This Could Be Yours” is a preview of the as-yet-untitled LP. If you are already a fan, you will not be disappointed with this alternative rock single.
