#MusicMonday playlist brought to you by @MonaFims

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

It is Monday and time for a new playlist! First band out this week is a two piece indie pop band from Sweden; “Palpitation” with their song “Ready Set Go”. A nice dreamy start on a new week!

We continue with “Peter & Kerry” and their song “The Shadows” from their latest EP “Clothes, Friends, Photos”. And then time for “Eternal Summers”. “Millions” is the first song from the band’s forthcoming full-length LP “Correct Behavior” (coming out in July)

“Rebekka Karijord” just came out with a new single “Use My Body While It´s Still Young”. Like always very nice lyrics and an amazing vocal.

Last song in this weeks playlist is by an American indie pop band; “Throw Me The Statue”. I really like their song “Lolita” from their debut album Moonbeams (2007).

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

#MusicMonday playlist brought to you by @MonaFims

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

Monday and time for a new playlist! First band out this week is a Swedish indie pop trio; “Little Majorette” with their song “A Swansea Love Story”. A very catchy song and a very nice female vocal.
We continue with yet another Swedish favorite: Malmoe based “This is Head” with their song “0011”.

Third band out this week is “The Shins” and their song “The Rifle’s Spiral” from their latest album “Port of Morrow” (2012). If you have not already done so, you should take the time and listen trough the rest of the album too. It is as most of the music critics are saying, packed with a lot of great music.

Next one out this week is one of my favorite singer-songwriter of all times: the amazing “Damien Rice” with his song “Dogs”. I’m sure most of you know Damien from before but if you don’t, you will get a very nice introduction by listening trough his album “O” from 2002. A little mellow but such an amazing album!

Last band out in this week’s Music Monday playlist is an indie pop band from Manhattan, New York.
“Cults” with their catchy song “Abducted”.

If you have song suggestion for next week’s playlist feel free to drop them in my Spotify Inbox.

Enjoy!
