If you woke up feeling decaffeinated and blue on this Monday morning, don't fret, we have you covered. Your day is about to get a little more awesome! Head here every Monday for a few fresh tunes to get your week started right.
For this epic last week in July I have hand selected a variety of music genres to get you moving and in the zone so you can show your coworker, your boss, your mom--whoever, who's really in control. Just click the play button at the bottom of this post to hear the playlist in full, or check out each track individually. ODESZA- How Did I Get Here
This electronic music duo kick starts this playlist off with a summer track that is just alive enough to open your eyes. If you haven't heard of ODESZA before, do yourself and your friends a favor and check them out. If your feeling their current vibe prepare yourself for their new album entitled "In Return" Coming out this September 2014. 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. This track is packed with all the free spirited vibes of a night riding through the tunnel with Charlie, Sam, and Patrick- Which is exactly what you need to ease your mind under those angry florescent lights. 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. Tom Misch & Carmody- Release You
This interesting track is a collaboration between British singer and composer Tom Misch and Carmody. “Release You,” released this year, blends electronic elements with acoustic instrumentation. If you are like me and had never previously heard Tom Misch before check out his sound cloud to hear more of his solo tracks as well as collaborations with artists like Mos Def and Notorious BIG.
