I’ve started to fall in love with music again. Gone are the days I spend grumbling about how pop music all sounds the same. I’m not that curmudgeonly yet. But ever since I started a project to help re-brand these guys, I’m getting back to my roots. Last week, I spent an evening with all the new stuff. And they are goodies. This mix starts like any commute in the twilight of winter should. Slow and early with the wandering beats of Sun Seeker. The beats move a bit faster as the day edges on, with Kevin Morby and then a Duran Duran cover by Shamir. And finally we hit up Anderson .Paak, a newbie on the hip hop-soul scene that I’m beyond digging.
I hope this little mix gets your Monday going swell.
