Coconut Records – Any Fun

I have a good 10 minutes of spare time today so this is going to be a quick one.

Last week, my good friend Antoine Karl sent me his Summer Sweater newsletter and the topic of conversation was the awesome Coconut Records song Any Fun. I listened to this a lot last year but for some reason 2009 feels like it was 10 years ago now so I had completely forgotten about it. It’s a rainy morning, football won’t be on for another million hours and to top things off it’s Monday. Fortunately, this is one of those songs that will put a smile on your face regardless of the weather or lack of NFL broadcasting. In fact, the entire Davy album is a recipe for feel good and I would highly recommend picking it up. You gotta respect Jason Schwartzman’s blueprint, the dudes carved out a niche for himself and reign king when it comes to his style. Being the nephew of Francis Ford Coppola and Nicholas Cage could pigeonhole you but he’s managed to make his own name to perfection. Alright, time to hit the streets, enjoy.

Le Miel du Mois by Steph Lund: Mai

They say time flies when you’re having fun, I guess that why it wasn’t till last week that I realized it’s been a whole year since Steph started the Le Miel du Mois series, wow. We’re getting a lot of new visitors lately so if you’re new to EMPT I recommend you to to the LMDM page and start right back at the very first installment of this series and work your way up to this months. Every tape has stands on it’s own and till this day I’ve never been able to pick a favorite and this month is no different. I know this is my site but I’m probably the biggest fan of this mixtape and since this is a big occasion and all I’d like to thank Steph for gracing us with such great music and taste.

You are appreciated” – Tupac

We’ll be announcing the official LMDM one year anniversary party soon so stay tuned…

Le Miel du Mois: Mai

This months LMDM is particularly special because it marks the one year anniversary for LMDM. The numbers of listeners streaming and downloading keeps growing each month and we hope every mixtape is like a special little present you cant wait to open every first of the month. This month’s tape is mostly dance tracks, my favorite. I like anything fast and loud that I can dance to and I hope you will agree that most of these get that job done. It finally feels like spring, and LMDM’s summer ahead looks danceably and rockingly amazing. Enjoy.
