SXSW may be done, but that doesn't mean we are! To fill the void of the around-the-clock sounds of Austin (and the bajillion tacos that were consumed during the past two weeks), we cooked up a fresh batch of songs to kick off the official start of festival season AND the first week of spring. Yes, it's the beginning of another long work week, but by typical Monday standards, this is one that's totally worth celebrating! —Corbin
Tirzah - No Romance
Greco-Roman, you've done it again, with a killer chill new track from Tirzah, taken from the forthcoming No Romance EP out April 21.
Another fantastic track from Oliver Wilde! While Music Monday has heard another Oliver Wilde track some time ago, this one is a bit harder and less Radio Dept. I'm looking foward to this album: The stinging guitars with the soft pillowy vocals sound really, really good.
Activia Frenz Vol. 1 comes out March 17 and so far all of the previews of this compilation are great. This selection is bouncy, along the lines of Cashmere Cat and Arnold—and with a great artist name to boot.
Jacques, the now veteran broken beat dance producer, doesn't need to make any excuses for his music. This song is off his forthcoming EP on LuckyMe Records, which we're big fans of over here. This is one label we're staying "Faithful" to.
Here's Cid Rim's take on Sky's big hit of last year "You're Not The One." If you dig it, we recommend you follow it up with "Draw," another one of our favorite remixes by the artist.
