Modern Music Monday

By 2:13 PM , ,

It’s finally time! Modern Music Monday is here! Each Monday I will add new music to a playlist that friends have told me about, music I have found, or new things I have come across at different times throughout the week. This week I have a mix of Childish Gambino – “Sober”, Usher/Disclosure – “Good Kisser”, Calvin Harris/Haim – “Pray to God”, and Vance Joy – “My Kind Of Man”.

Childish Gambino is easily one of the most influential rapper/ singers in today’s time. His words and his beats make it easy for you to be captivated and want to listen to more. “Sober” is a song on his newest album Kauai, which is his newest ep/ mix tape, and was released in early October of 2014. Each song is very eclectic and different.  Gambino is an easily likable artist with his flow of music and style. You must listen to more!

Usher first came out with his funky smash “Good Kisser” in May of 2014. This song made it to the list because who doesn’t love a little bit of Usher every now and then? I know you all dance when any of his songs come on. And when Disclosure re-mixed “Good Kisser” Back in July, they gave us all the more reasons to dance to him again. The upbeat and modernly beautiful beat of disclosure echoes within the song. It’s a super good Monday song. You’re for sure starting the week off right with this one!

Oh how I love Haim (not to get confused with the delicious food, ham). I recently couldn't stop playing their music because, who doesn't love a group of three powerful woman singing rich songs with passion and yet staying so poised at the same time? I was so pleased when Calvin Harris Featured them on his newest album Motion. “Pray to God” is an upbeat casual vibe that will have your Monday feeling like a Friday. And who doesn't love Fridays? WE ALL DO.

Lastly, we have a classic. An old soul. A master at his work and a unique human being. Vance Joy. What a good man! My friend had recently told me how much she loved him and so I just had to give it a go and listen to some of his music. I’m also never listening to anything else. “My Kind Of Man” is a good song to wind down to at the end of the day.

Keep grooving on. Modern Music Monday will continue next week!

Let the music play. Vibe all day.
