LunchBox 8.19.14

Great new tracks this week! I'm loving the ambient anthemic nature of Show Me Love. Also, Young Rising Songs are, well, rising, with their fabulous track Red & Gold. If you're listening to Heavy Hands by Alex Clare and thinking it sounds familiar, it's because Mr. Clare is best known for his blockbuster single of 2011: Too Close.

Listen and be refreshed!

Mary Lambert does pop music beautifully

Unless you've been under a rock for the past two years, you've heard Mary Lambert. Her voice took Macklemore and Ryan Lewis to the top of pop music with her soulful "She keeps me warm" chorus for Same Love, a song that will ultimately come to define a generational turning point about same-sex relationships.

But her stardom is no accident; she's talented, collaborative, gorgeous and continuing to produce great music. A few singles are all we get for now, but already she's got a chart-ready, catchy, off-pop jam in the song Secrets, a song about empowerment, love and living life honestly:

I look forward to more!

Mixers - 8.1.14

It's August already! Time for the summer weekend parties we dream of all year. Seven new off-pop tracks to help the party pop-off. Festive tracks stacked on top of a whole playlist (try "Shuffle"!) to let the party go till late... or early... (if that's the case, check out some end-of-the night HOUSE or some deeper, minimalistic DIVE DEEP).
