Happy Monday, friends! Should those two words every really go together? “Happy” and “Monday?” Probably not. After a lovely, relaxing weekend that involved chocolate chip cookies, this sweet potato hash, and a little bit of shopping, I am not ready for this work week. To make it sting a little less, I’m going to kick it off with a coffee and breakfast sandwich from my favorite local bakery. We can do anything for five days…right?
|I could eat chocolate chip cookies for five days, that’s for sure!|
Hope you all survive, too. Here’s a little music for your work week:
– JR JR
Formerly known as “Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jr.,” this band has a new song and album and I LOVE IT. It’s a little bit eighties and whole lot of something I want to listen to all day, every day.
– Terrible Thrills, Vol. 2
So apparently, when Jack Antonoff writes music, he hears it in his head sung by a female. This album is just a bunch of amazing female artists lending their voice to covers from Strange Desire. My favorite is Sia’s rendition of “Like a River Runs.”
Did you know my girl Sara B. scored an entire musical? And it’s probably amazing and the best thing ever?? She just released one of the songs from the musical and it is wonderful–one of those beautiful songs that make you cry.
– “Wolves Without Teeth,” Of Monsters and Men
I’ve listened to this song all summer and I still can’t get enough. The rest of the album is also fantastic.
– Jukebox the Ghost
Matt and I saw them when they opened for Ingrid Michaelson this past summer–they’re a fun band to watch live, and their music is also quite pleasing to the ear. My favorite right now is “Girl.”
What’s on your playlist this week?
