Coffee – Misun

“Oh, stay 
Just for a little while
At least for another hour
Oh, stay with me
At least for another hour
Stick around”

It’s just a simple plea.

The song, Coffee, offers the listener some of the sweetest sounds coming off simply, but packing a more powerful sound as it progresses. With just two verses repeated, the lyrics act more like a recurring chord flowing in the song than a long tale of love. The reason I loved this song when I heard it was because I related to these simple lyrics. My first words in the morning to my man are usually asking for “one more minute” or even “30 more seconds” just to be next to him for a little while longer. I heard this song and immediately flew back to his bed on the other side of the world where I could whisper this.

This song is much more complex than it lets off though with its whimsical exterior. A light acoustic strums simple chords and the singer whistles occasionally through the song making a sound both delicate and inviting. The addition of the catchy dance beat added in later makes this song one to sing along with and dance to. Misun, the magical trio who created this, come from Washington, D.C. The album, Sea, actually launched last year but is definitely worth revisiting now. The pop album uses the lead singers bedroom voice with the equally as important guitar and melodic beats to give their debut EP an unmissable track list.

It’s always worth asking for more time.

For whatever reason I’ve been feeling a little bit like The Bride from Kill Bill this week. I feel confident in a I-don’t-give-two-#$%*s kind of way and my soundtrack has been a solid reflection of that. No matter who you are, walking around the city to some gritty tunes automatically gives you a certain air of badass-ness. Your head’s held a little higher, your walk becomes a strut, and you don’t look anywhere but straight ahead of you. You don’t move for other people, other people move for you. Perhaps it’s the way the wobbling guitars and smokey vocals creep below your skin and infect your bloodstream for 3 minutes or so. It’s raw and uninhibited; two things not many of us can be day-to-day.

This track I’ve got for y’all right here comes to us from Washington D.C. threesome Misun. It’s a departure from their debut EP, The Sea, which had a lighter aesthetic to it. I’m not complaining, though. From the opening kick-drum beat and synth to the whiskey soaked voice of Misun Wojcik this track oozes a filthy confidence. The guitars that hover in the background amp up the sex appeal of the track and give it a Coyote Ugly feel. It’s got me itching for a strong drink at some dive bar in Alphabet City right now. “Sharpshooter” is your perfect Thursday night companion to take the edge of the week off while starting your weekend. Here’s to something a little different. Here’s to finding that inner sharpshooter confidence in ya this weekend.

Le Miel du Mois by Steph Lund: Janvier 2013

Music has taken me many places man but my most recent adventure might be the one to top them all. I spent last week on a 26,000 acre private Villa off Mexico’s virgin coast. I was there curating the music for someones 50th birthday, this person shall remain nameless but all I can say is that my life will never be the same.

A good friend asked me what I got from the trip and aside from the most luxurious partying I’ve ever done, hanging with some of the most beautiful and elegant women I’ve ever encountered, having worldly conversations with the most powerful men around and all the other romance such beauty and power affords, it was the first time I really understood that it’s the rebels who get the best life has to offer…

 How does somebody know what they want if they’ve never even seen it?”

We’re literally bombarded with media these days, which in the context of that question means that what we want is limited to what is put in front of us. For example, these BS Netflix and Pandora algorithms that “know what you like.” At first thought that might seem cool but always getting what you already know and are comfortable with is criminal. Where’s the adventure? There’s no limit to our anything, not our love, our ability to learn or appreciate, to grow or to expand and yet the whole point of these services is to define and box you up. I don’t buy it.

It’s important to ask yourself if the path you’re on is something you created, is it an expression of yourself or is it just something others have created for you? You’ll never find what you seek if let others guide your vision. There is a wonderful experience out there most of us will never get because we got so caught up in the ever expansive rat race but we live in a time when being limitless is easier than ever… The people who excel astronomically in this world are the ones who live beyond it. Welcome to the Space Age, please REBEL ASAP.

That brings me to the subject of today post, the first LMDM of 2013, aka the soundtrack to my story. Le Miel du Mois has been going since 2009 and you think by now we’d know what to expect right? Wrong! This isn’t Pandora baby, this is pure life in the form of music and like someone who is truly living, it’s constantly evolving, changing, learning, adapting, growing, speeding up, slowing down, in love, out of love, partying, chilling out and on and on. I’ve never been able to define LMDM, I could never tell someone it’s one genre of music or what not and it’s one of the reason I and so many others are forever in love with this tape. Where’s the adventure? With LMDM it’s everywhere and it makes me proud to bring you another year of it, enjoy.

januaryyy. sigh. the cold air. hugging your coat a little closer to your body. brisk walks. short cigarettes. cold hands. warm bodies. late night sips. stealing kisses…stay warm & stay up late…
