Music Monday: April 7, 2014

No more Monday morning excuses! Stop staring at the clock and start your work week out right with five hand-picked songs from our music stylist, Corbin, who wants to fill your brainwaves with summer-ready sounds and auditory illusions.

Chrome Sparks - Goddess
This is a spiraling, dizzying new one from Chrome Sparks. It encompasses the ambiguity of the seasons right now here in Philadelphia. Is it spring? Because I can't tell. Anyway, "Goddess" is a tune. Good for late night drives. If this one is for you, check out this and this

Strand of Oaks - Goshen '97
This one should be set up slightly. There's this wave that seems very strong at the moment of Springsteen-esque feel-good tunes. This is one of them. (Also worthy of calling out for this feeling is The War On Drugs new record.)

Tala - The Dutchess
This is killer. Fans of Jai Paul and Hemsworth will like this one a lot. Make sure to also check out Ben Khan. AIRHORN SOUND EFFECT, Y'ALL.

Lone - 2 Is 8
You know what? 2 IS 8. Lone, you always are the guy. 

Mirror Kisses - Genius
Nice '80s pop vibe from Mirror Kisses. Really wonderful full sound and nice Ian Curtis vocals. The track remind me a lot of Var (War, Iceage).
