#MusicMondayis the hashtag I've been using for quite a while to share music recommendations from up-and-coming artists. Always fresh, and always different, trying to look for trends before they become one. You can checkSeptember's reviewfor more music.
Invitations are the common theme of the month, as the last part of 2021 begins. Keeping a positive attitude is a must! Let's have a listen, with a word from the artists themselves. 🎧
Green Gardens – I Keep Eating Myself
There are worse places to sleep than a coffin There are harder hands to hold than each others
And if I keep eating myself there will be nothing left
The self-proclaimed pastoral art rock gardeners from Leeds, England bring us a track that invites us to look at the bright side of things:
"It came from a photograph by Bill Brandt of a bloke asleep underground during the blitz that I saw in the Hepworth in Wakefield. It was published in a magazine at the time with the headline “THERE ARE WORSE PLACES TO SLEEP THAT A COFFIN” that form of optimism is something that I think we 4 try to carry with us. If we’re being constantly chewed up and spat out by life better to do it smiling than groaning.
Let's travel to Montevideo, Uruguay for some nice groovy jazzy Latin Pop. Listen, and let your wild instincts roar:
"I was in the southern jungle of Mexico, backpacking. There, I came up with the idea of doing a beat which people could relate to the wild while keeping a groovy vibe. The lyrics and melody came some months later. I tried to describe and convey that sensation when we have to make a choice, and you feel those inner voices which may lead you, either to make good choices or bad ones."
