Monday Blues & Beats Vol. 27

Happy Monday Folks!

If you’re situated in the same city I am, today is the first sunshine we’ve seen in what feels like weeks. If you’re live some where precipitation is a novelty, I envy you at times. Point being, wherever you may be, new music has no regard for the weather, it will always come out and play.

This week, Cat Power made a surprise visit to the music industry. It’s been six years since she crafted up any new material.

Florence dabbles in the fantasy world of Snow White, Big K.R.I.T. takes the time to thank his fans, and The Alchemist takes it to ScHool to concoct some grunge with Brown.

Cat Power – Ruin [Link 2]


Sun will be out September 4th. Besides the theme of the record being about a breakup, she says she’s very proud of it.
