A while back, I started a Monday thang called “Music Mondays.” In pure Winslow fashion, I posted a few times and it fell by the wayside for my TV rantings. Because I’m probably a bigger music addict than I am TV/Film, I want to give this blog space a little more balance, hence, the return of MUSIC MONDAYS!
Instead of posting reviews (which I’ll continue to do from time to time), I’m going to post a Song of the Week, Band of the Week, or whatever else rocks my boat. It could be a brand new band, a new-to-me band, or an old favorite, but I’ll offer up something fresh and fun for your Mondays to ease the pain of the new work week. Music helps. It’s a proven fact. I think I read it in Cliffs Notes or something.
This week’s music comes from the band Friends. Their album Manifest! hit stores in June of 2012, but they recently fell upon my virgin ears thanks to a buddy-ol’-pal o’mine, DoomCake. The album’s lead track “Friend Crush” and single “I’m His Girl” are a solid representation of what this Brooklyn outfit is about: indie pop, funk, disco, synths, yada yada yada. Just listen already!
I’m all about sharing! If you’ve got something everyone should hear that should be featured on Music Mondays, hit me up in the comments, on Twitter, or on Facebook. Til next time.
