A quick post of 5 brilliant tracks from various artists and genres old and new to kick start your week. The Replacements and Descendents tracks are a couple of rock/punk rock personal past faves that I can listen to over and over. I have been on a huge Four Tet kick, and in general mellow electronic kick so I had to throw this gem in there as well. While I’ve never really been a huge Modest Mouse fan as the dudes twangy voice can annoy me a bit and their band name really irks me for some reason, the tune is so beautiful and a bit haunting. Finally, Megafaun are new on my radar as they bring a healthy dose of experimental indie folkie-ness reminiscent of the Fleet Foxes and the Byrds. That said, it’s a mix of tunes to start off the new week.
