Music Monday * Tanlines & Dr. John

By | music | No Comments

Brooklyn music makes my hips swing on this Monday morning. Tanlines is a duo from New York that infuses their sound with pop, indie and a bit of dance. Their album was released on March 20th and it had made it into my rotation this week.

something completely different – get ready to kick it old school:
Dr. John is a session musician who has been around since the 50s, he came out with his latest album ‘Locked Down’recently and it really does groove. It makes for great summer music. Swing away.

Monday Music

By | music | No Comments

This Monday is the last actual holiday in Honolulu. Tomorrow it’s already time again to board that plane and head back to Shanghai. The trip back, though only an 8 hour flight, will consume all of my Tuesday and Wednesday. It’ll be a ‘Back to the Future” trip, which is kind of cool.

Yesterday it rained quite a bit so I spent the majority of the day shopping and reading. The best thing is got is a brand new MacBook Pro which I am blogging from right now.

The question at hand is whether to follow my current strategy and naming it a female name (all my Apple products are girls, all other technical devices are guys). So far it’s just called MacBook Pro. A bit lame, so I will think about it.

Here’s now my music of today.

Femme is a duo comprised of Dimbleby and Capper who introduced the track LocoLuvva last year. Hooray to Women in Music!

Next up is Regina Spektor, a piano playing singer/songwriter from New York. This lady makes beautiful music with an edge to it, crisp sound.

after a weekend in Xi’An (more detailed recap to follow), I’m winding it down with some girl music.

in no particular order or newness, these are just a few songs that accompany my Sunday before heading to dinner at Cotton’s.
