#MusicMonday playlist brought to you by @MonaFims

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

Monday and as always I have prepared a new #MusicMonday playlist for you!

We start this week’s playlist with an American indie rock band; “Modest Mouse”. I picked the song “Dashboard” from their fifth studio album called “We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank” released back in 2007.

We continue with “The Shins” and their song “No Way Down” from their latest album “Port Of Morrow”. This album contains a lot of really good songs and I think it will probably be seen as one of the best albums released in whole 2012.

Next band in our playlist is an electro pop group from Los Angeles, California: “Capital Cities” and their catchy song “Kangaroo Court”. We continue with another American: “Langhorne Slim and The War Eagles” with “Spinning Compass”.

Last song in our playlist this week’s is “Hot Knife” from “Fiona Apple’s” brand new album called: “The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do”.

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!
