Monday Blues & Beats Vol. 20

Sorry for the tardiness, my music hosting server was down yesterday. But here we are.

April 21st marked the fifth annual Record Story Day! Subsequently leaving us with a great week in music.

This week the Icelandic group Sigur Rós released a double single with two incredibly heartfelt, emotional tracks.

The lovely Fiona Apple has released a single for her album coming this summer after a seven year absence.

Beach House let off another gorgeous single for the upcoming project.

Feist and Mastodon put together remixes of each other’s songs. A very odd combination but the folk and metal actually work well together.

A$AP Rocky and Hit-Boy teamed up for an addictive banger, while Mac and Curren$y chill out.

Also included in this week’s mix: Lana Del Rey on BBC, Wiz Khalifa, MellowHigh, Major Lazer, A Thousand Fuegos, Gotye & Tiësto, Talib Kweili, B.o.B, Riz & Drake, Hoodie Allen, Drink To Me & Nipsey Hussle.
