Music Monday: July 14, 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.

TRACK PREMIERE: Lyon & Lowe - Everyone Walks to the Beat of a Child

New track premiere (*airhorn*)! This is Lyon & Lowe's sophomore Music Monday appearance and it's a goodie. Head to Facebook to learn more about Lyon & Lowe. And if you head to their Soundcloud, you can get a free download of this track!

"Heaven" is a nice, chill, endearing track from No Rome. "Floralpunk" is the self-declared genre of No Rome, who hail from the Philippines. This one sounds like Ryan Hemsworth would like it a lot, because it's in the similar realm of RnB infused trap-pop. Great track regardless of the genre or scene. 

If this is a demo, I'm especially interested in listening to the studio version. This is that classic, Prince-y poppy funk stuff. This one has a nice summery vibe - good for a funky beach trip for sure. 

"Time" has been floating around the interwebs for some time now (no pun intended). It was played on a Boiler Room set that left everyone wondering when and where this track would be released. Turns out it was the great Will Saul, Aus Music head, who recently included it exclusively on his DJ-Kicks. Thanks, Will. 

Solid tune from what appears to be a brand new band, Soph Nathan. This is a killer chill indie track. Listen if you like: Beach Fossils, and other awesome shoe-gaze bands.
