Damon Albarn-Spoons

  Mood Monday Sometimes people say too much, sometimes they don’t say enough, and sometimes it seems clear in their head, but it comes out all mixed up or taken the wrong way. Words are curious things. So today, I thought I would say less and you can just listen. Damon Albarn is the frontman…

Black Prairie-Let It Out

It is Thursday and so many people have really gone hog wild on the idea of throw back Thursday. I love the idea of reminiscing about the past. Sometimes looking back, makes you appreciate those moments even more. I am all for it when it comes to music too. One of my favorite bands are…

Woods-Moving To The Left

Okay, so I am tardy for Mood Monday. How about a sweet tune for Tuesday? Yes, it appears we are all floating on and it is happening again, over and over again, just like this song that I have been playing on repeat. Patterns in seasons, goodness, global warming, carpenter bees, childhood joy, longing, colliding…

Syd Arthur-Garden of Time

Mood Monday. My white azaleas are in full glorious bloom. Yesterday, I actually spent hours cleaning pollen off my porch so I could relax and read the Sunday Times in garden harmony with birds chirping, chipmunks squeaking, and the warmth of the sun without its harsh effects. I reflect on this happy moment of unwinding,…

Young and Sick-Heartache Fetish

A change of pace is needed. Who can resist a bleepy boop, date night, soulful admission of reckless love? This song, “Heartache Fetish” is such an unusual mix of harmonies, synths and interesting snap/claps. It is totally tantalizing and fun ear joy at the same time. Nick Van Hofwegen is the mastermind behind Young and…

Odessa-I Will Be There

Mood Monday Music….. Life happens. It seems to be always changing and turning. Health fails, deep worries or cherished thoughts are shared, epic life changes occur and allies are needed. Listening,  caring, and supporting are the perfect antidote for friends, loved ones, and family. This song is a beautiful testament for what I feel and…

tUnE-yArDs-Water Fountain

Okay, I have crazy love for this band and their strange sound. It is so oddly weird and yet brilliantly fantastic. No, I haven’t lost my mind yet, I don’t think. Listen more than once, and I bet you will feel just as giddy. It is impossible for me not to yell, Woo-HA Woo-Ha! Hey,…

March songs 2014

Listen with me to the Immersed in Cool Music March Playlist. These are all of the songs I featured on IiCM in the month of March. There are some substitute songs, and darn it, I couldn’t find Phox on Spotify! Everything else is there and true to the month. Enjoy.  

The War On Drugs-Under The Pressure

Mood Monday. The sky is blue, the air is warm, and I am not going to crack under any pressure. With warm clear skies, comes the opportunity to bike. With biking, comes my ability to push away all pressure. I have a good playlist that begins with this song. It reflects my mood today. I…

Generationals-Put A Light On

Sometimes, without much warning, things can take a terrible turn. Life changing stuff happens that brings about sincere sadness for a loved one. What to do? My only way to cope is to seek out a tiny opening in the darkness, one that may showcase a little beauty or hope and therefore allowing a sliver…
