Le Miel du Mois by Steph Lund: Avril 2012

t w e n t y o n e songs of Le Miel du Mois! What the f%*k is a Monday blues?

Steph is back with this installment of LMDM and it’s another wonderfully eclectic blend of everything you didn’t even know you loved. Stephs all-embracing approach to music is one of the reasons why LMDM has been and continues to be one of the most interesting mix tapes on any side of the globe. I don’t know about you but I get bored quick fast listening to the same music or style over and over. Musical monogamy is not a concept I can get behind. Our minds are capable of processing anything we throw at it so to limit yourself to just one style of expression or one type of artist is a crime of the highest order. Thankfully, once a month Steph delivers like that perfect lover everyone dreams of – unpredictable, surprising, interesting, risky and totally in tune with your wants and desires at the moment without you having to say a word. Gotta love it.

I have listened to Youth Lagoon on repeat more times than you should really repeat anything in one hour/day/week/month. Same for The Drums,  who are playing in New York this Sunday if you are in NY, go. Other monthly obsessions include the sun and no-reason car rides so I can listen to whatever I’m listening to (probably Youth Lagoon) longer before having to go inside. And here we go…

MyKill – Falling

It’s Wednesday but it feels like a Monday, is that weird? I’m okay with it for now, because I know when the weekend rolls around it’s going to be a really blissful surprise. Regardless, last weekend I had the pleasure of seeing a friend I hadn’t seen in quite some time. This is very relevant to this swaggy track you’re about to hear, so bear with me. This friend of mine is someone I would call my musical equal, because I think we’re on exactly the same level of love for music, in every regard. Ever since we met last year, we’ve been sharing music with one another, already knowing how the other will feel. It’s safe to say that his taste in music is excellent, and lucky for him, he’s a DJ too. (Maybe I should say lucky for the people who get to listen to him at work, because it’s so hard not to dance…)

Anyways, we were at a party together over the weekend when he started to DJ, and he threw down this track. I was sitting at the time and couldn’t help but stand up and groove. This track kind of made me realize when I listened the next day, that my summer was totally over but that good things were happening all around.

I think it’s only fair to include a Boney M. video in this post too, because I know you need it on this surprisingly beautiful Wednesday.

What if all we had to worry about was producing feel good disco tunes and maintaining our afros? How beautiful would that be?
