#MusicMonday playlist brought to you by @MonaFims

Our friend @MonaFims has this #MusicMonday’s recommendations.

It is Monday and, as always, time for a new playlist!

We kick off this week with a song called “Fineshrine” by a new favorite Canadian indie electronic duo called “Purity Ring”. I was really looking forward to hear more from them after hearing their amazing debut single “Obedear” a few months ago. Last week I was happy to see their debut album “Shrines” made available in Spotify.

Next band out this week is by an American indie-pop duo called “Ghost Beach”. I really like their catchy feel-good song called “Miracle”.

More American dream pop coming up. This time from a San Francisco duo “Midi Matilda” and their single “Red Light District”.

We continue with “Hot Chip”‘s dreamy song “Let Me Be Him” from their latest album “In Our Heads”. “In Our Heads” is “Hot Chip”‘s fifth full-length album and I agree with those who say it is their most playful and colorful record yet.

Last song in this weeks playlist is by the English singer; Louisa Rose Allen, better known as “Foxes”. She completes this weeks playlist with her beautiful debut single “Youth”.

If you have song suggestions for next week’s playlist, be sure to drop them in Mona’s Spotify Inbox.

Subscribe to the playlist and you will get a mix of twenty new Feel-Good tracks every Monday.

Enjoy!

#MusicMonday playlist brought to you by @MonaFims

Our friend @MonaFims has this #MusicMonday’s recommendations.

We kick off a new week with a an amazing song from a new New York duo who are making a huge buzz around the blogosphere these days: “Hurricane” by “MS MR”.

We continue with a favorite English indie rock band: “The Maccabees”. I never get tired of their song “Glimmer” from their lastest album “Given To The Wild”. If you have not done so already you should take the time and listen trough the whole album. It is packed with amazing songs!

Next track on our playlist this week is by a Swedish Indie-Electro-Rock band from Stockholm: “Urban Cone” and their song “Kings & Queens”. And then time for English “Theme Park” and their song called “Milk” and US/UK based “The Kills” with their catchy “Tape Song”.

Last song in this week’s playlist is by an American band from Denton, Texas and it happens to be one of my favorite songs of all time: “Roscoe” by “Midlake”
