Lineup #256

Summer new music releases are in full swing - but rather than rush into them (Bon Iver’s i,i!) after another weekend out of town (#weddingseason!), I put together a playlist of a couple brand new releases, but mostly a number of other track's I’ve been meaning to share with you that I’ve collected over the past few weeks. Glad to give these ones the spotlight.

Lineup #255

In the years since TML was founded, lots has happened - including the mainstream acceptance of the importance of self-care (I see you fab five). Self-care can take on many forms, but when I’m going through it, one of the most important ways I take care of myself is through listening to straight-up, unabashed feel-good music (even if it means forcing myself). This week, we’re returning to the very roots of The Monday Lineup with a playlist full of tried and true feel-good jams. Consider Lineup #255 your self-care regimen to start your week.

Lineup #254

Can we all agree it’s crazy that it’s almost August? Summer is flying by, and was also in full effect this past week/end in my home city with a rare streak of sunny Summer days (not to mention a Chance drop always means sunshine). I did the best I could to harness those Summer vibes and put them into Lineup #254 for you - full of fresh new music and lots of bongos. Let’s keep this going as long as we can.

Lineup #253

As I mentioned in last week’s post, I’ve been on the road for what seems like most of the Spring and Summer. But this past weekend, I finally had an entire weekend at home and it was nothing short of amazing. And if you take a quick look at this week’s Lineup, you’ll immediately see that this directly translated into a playlist full of pop songs. So if you’re in need of an energy boost (I see you heatwave ppl), look no further than Lineup #253.

Lineup #252

I created this week’s Lineup on my 8th cross-country flight in the past 7 weeks - 3 of which were red-eyes. Yikes!

So whether it was something in my subconscious or the cosmos at work, it’s no surprise that Lineup #252 is full of ethereal vocals, tropical beats and downtempo indie-pop aka the best remedy for a Monday morning after traveling. Or any Monday really.

Lineup #250

Like every Sunday, yesterday I was putting the final touches on this week’s Lineup when I realized that we’re at Lineup #250, which means 250 straight weeks of playlists (and a pretty cool milestone number). Which is pretty remarkable if you think about it.

Lineup #249

As Pride month comes to a close, I hope you not only use Lineup #249 to get through the start of the week, but take a moment to honor the incredible contributions of this community to music across decades and genres. It’s pretty remarkable…

Lineup #248

This week’s Lineup is brought to you by my Bluetooth headphones that really come in handy when I have a lot of cleaning and laundry to do. Pulling together a massive playlist of new music to listen to while tidying up the house is pretty much my version of Mary Poppins’ ability to snap at things and have them magically clean themselves up. So whatever you need to get done this week, Lineup #248 will make doing it much more enjoyable.

Lineup #247

We’re in the midst of a heatwave in San Francisco with temperatures above 90 degrees. I’ve been sitting at my computer trying to think of a creative, non-corny way to relate the hot temperatures outside to the hot new music on Lineup #247 for the last 15 minutes, but I can’t come up with anything so I recommend just pressing play. You’ll see what I mean.

Lineup #246

I love when one month transitions to another - not because I want time to move any faster than it already does - but because as one month ends and another begins, the Internet is full of monthly music roundups. With new music coming out basically every second of the day, it’s hard to keep up. So, at the end of the month, it's always a treat to get acquainted with songs I’ve previously overlooked. Lineup #246 has a handful of these, plus other delights to kick off June.

Lineup #245

…And while I’m proud that my niece takes after her aunty and has very strong opinions on what music she likes, it felt incredibly refreshing to take a break from songs like “We Are The Dinosaurs” and “Waiting For The Elevator” and put together this week’s Lineup together with strictly adult music. These are all songs I’ve been meaning to put on a Lineup for some time now, so I’m excited to finally get them into your orbit.

Lineup #243

This week’s Lineup is essentially what my brain came up with after spending the majority of the past few days listening to a Kevin Morby, Jamila Woods and Charly Bliss. So, a lovely combination of folk rock, R&B, power pop and adjacent genres to kick off the week. Don’t mind if I do.

Lineup #242

April showers bring…

May albums? Definitely not the way the saying goes, but it might as well be. We’re one week into the month and we’ve already been gifted new albums from Vampire Weekend and Big Thief, the long awaited (at least for me!) debut album from Barrie and a new EP from MorMor. Plus, I finally got the chance to sink my teeth into the Kevin Morby’s new album (spoiler alert: it’s a stunner).

All this to say, that there were a lot of new additions into the canon of 2019 this past week. I’m working on some new ways to easily share out my favorite albums in real time - but Lineup #242 is a good preview while you wait.

Lineup #241

After a few busy busy weekends and travel, this past one was pretty much a clean slate. You know what that means - lots of time for exploring the interwebs and finding new music. And listening to Lizzo and Beyoncé. But besides those two, who you can expect to make an appearance on many upcoming Lineups, I had lots of fun spending time with some new-to-me artists, many of which I’m sharing with you on Lineup #241.

Lineup #240

Turns out, however, that if you forgo the last day of Coachella as I did, Monday actually feels pretty great (in comparison). So this week’s Lineup is definitively not a cool down. If you’re looking for one, you can find one here here here and here.
