St. Lucia
Electronic pop band, St. Lucia enchanted us with some sweet tunes.

Kickstarting the weekend at the Spotify House

Friday at the Spotify House was the ultimate way to kickstart the weekend with three stellar acts stopping by.

Usually electronic-based, Vacationer treated us to a stripped-down version of “Be With You” on the lawn. Their Spotify Session will transport you to a dreamy place so be sure to check it out here.

#MusicMonday playlist brought to you by @MonaFims

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

First song out this week is “We Are The Tide” with one of my favorite indie folk bands trough all time; “Blind Pilot”. They have a long list of amazing songs and I have added a few of them before in Music Monday. If you like what you hear you should also check out: “One Red Thread”, “Oviedo” and their latest album´s title track “3 Rounds And A Sound”. I continue the playlist with a norwegian favorite. A indiepop quartet from Oslo: “Monzano”. I really love their song “New Astronomy” from their first album, “High Horses & One Trick Ponies” (2007)

The Jezabels are a four-piece musical group who formed after meeting at the University of Sydney. They have been described as a blend of alternative rock, indie rock, and disco pop and they just came out with a new album called “Prisoner”. I chose to add one of their old songs this Monday; “Mace Spray”. You should also check out “Endless Summer” from their newest album.

“The Maccabees” are an indie rock band from Brighton, England. They have released three albums so far, “Colour It In” in 2007, with a follow-up, “Wall of Arms”, released in 2009. Their most recent album “Given to the Wild” just came out now in 2012. I love their song “Feel to Follow”.

I finish this weeks playlist with a new favorite singer and songwriter. “Alex Winston”. She is an American indie pop/rock singer and multi-instrumentalist. Classically trained in opera, Winston was encouraged by her parents to pursue music. She has a very interesting sound I like her song “Guts” from her latest album “King Con”. Strange and beautiful.
