It really is a beautiful day. Another huge, colourful number from Young Monks that combines everything they do best: smooth grooves, electric vibes, and a whole heap of horns. It's like a slap in the face on this Monday morning but in a good way (if that's possible?).

A dusty pearl of a song; moody and hypnotic, yet crystal clear in its intentions. This is a lovely, sophisticated first offering that's hard to pass up.

There's a lot of cute, charming lil moments coming through in slivers of Blue Velvet's songs now and I'm all about it. That last section kicking into overdrive was a nice treat too.

I have had two (2) pub feeds in the past week and I truly believe this was a subconscious decision, as a result of listening to this bad boy.

Dreamy and nostalgic with a soft sepia-tinge that ages this song like a fine wine.

You could put this and New Order's Blue Monday b2b on repeat all night and I'd still be caught dancing at 3am when the lights come on.

If there's one thing OC nail time and time again, it's creating swelling, pulsing atmospheres that explode into a thousand tiny fireworks. Huge (and true).

Another rousing call-to-arms from Johnny Hunter, and you best believe it had me chanting every step of the way.

Every time I hear a new Raavies song I suddenly turn into a can of wiggly beans - like those magic ones that kid Jack had that one time, or those weird little toy bean things with faces we all used to play with in the early 00s. In this case, Lindsay is the magic.

No silly, witty or insightful remark to make here. I'm just dropping by to say I fall in love with each and every new VACATIONS song that the world is blessed with and I, for one, truly do not deserve you.

There's a really nice earthiness to your voice and the shifting melody dynamics keep it interesting through the whole three-and-a-half minutes. Curious to see where you take it from here!
