Music Mondays - 06.02.17
BY KUDI MARADZIKA
Mondays aren't as bad as they used to be.
A little focus and determination and the crappy Monday Blues will disappear, aided of course by some kick ass music! I know I say I'm excited to share new music every week but this week tops all others! Sampha's album is out, London Grammar are releasing soon! We're practically spoilt at this stage!
By the way, excuse the typo on the Music Monday poster, last week it said '2016' today it says 'Jan'. First my bad and also you guys, where is the time going! Gosh! Without further ado, here's today's picks!
CATCHY TUNE ON REPEAT!
Track: Before The Fire
I haven't listened to Santigold since her first album three years ago. It's clearly my loss because 99c came and went over and under my radar! If a song's beat gets me interested, it has me for the next 3 minutes easily! This song does exactly that!
CARPE THAT DIEM!
Track: The World Is Yours
I've been obsessed with this track for a while but was waiting for the video to share it. AKA and Bonang are living the African Dream right now! Gorgeous video, gorgeous people, great song!
Artist: London Grammar
Track: Rooting For You.
Their current hit track Big Picture has been doing the rounds. I personally prefer this soothing track. Always such beautiful vocals! Also how sweet are those lyrics?
IT GROWS ON YOU!
Artist: Missy Elliot
Track: I'm Better
Wasn't a fan of this song a few days ago buuuuut, it really grows on you. It's also perfect for strength training and the treadmill =) It's also awesome to see Missy returning to her old-school hip hop avant garde music video roots! Man I miss Hype Williams!
I love discovering new music from artists whose music I had NO idea about. BETSY is a great surprise! Although she's been around since 2007, if not earlier, this Welsh beauty's look and vocals are so distinct and her music feels like a welcome throwback to 90's Brit pop. Love it, love it, love it!
