Happy Friday. You’ve made it through another week, and if your’s was anything like mine, you, my friends, are in desperate need of libations. It might not yet be 7:30 AM here in New York, but I decided not to keep it chill this morning as I went about my daily ritual of coffee, shower, breakfast. I wholeheartedly believe that what you listen to in the morning as you get ready forecasts the hours before you. Press play on this puppy, and I’m pretty sure your day will go from a joyous moment realizing it’s Friday to a permanent elation.
I stumbled across this track randomly crawling through the Internet a couple of weeks back. This summer has been about a couple things; one of which is Daft Punk. Their Random Access Memories LP is a solid fall back when I’ve had it playing iPod roulette. And MNDR’s “Feed Me Diamonds” has basically become a semi-precious anthem of mine. Layer the two together, and well, we’ve got ourselves one hell of a track. There’s nothing dramatic about this song at all. It’s honest electronic dance music that comes without the headache. MNDR’s raspy vocals hover over the spinning production as the strings swell beneath her. It’s one of those track’s you can listen to from day-to-night — it easily picks you up, and can easily trip you up. I respect a track that’s as ambiguous as it is grounded. I hope you do, too, because it’s the weekend; welcome it with open, diamond filled arms.
