Lineup #179

In 2018, Archives, February 2018 by eseids0 Comments

HBD Presidents. For those of you working on this national holiday, this Lineup is for you. But Lineup #179 is also for the rest of us who have to go back to work tomorrow and will undoubtedly need a little pick me up when we realize our life of leisure was just an illusion (just me?). Always, lots of new music fell into …

Lineup #178

In 2018, Archives, February 2018 by eseids0 Comments

Go for the gold. Admittedly I spent most of the weekend glued to NBC’s primetime broadcasts of the 2018 Winter Olympics (and Leslie Jones’ twitter account), but I squeezed in some time to find some cool new tunes. Lineup #178 features a bunch of new and up and coming artists, and should help bring you right through the week and into …

Lineup #177

In 2018, Archives, February 2018 by eseids0 Comments

Thanks, fans. Last week, The Official Monday Lineup hit 200 followers on Spotify which is pretty cool. I have no idea who these 200 people are (and if you’re not one of them, now’s the time!) but I am very appreciative of the support for this little project that I’ve been doing for nearly 3.5 years(!) now. As a thank …

Lineup #176

In 2018, Archives, January 2018 by eseids0 Comments

And the winner is… The Grammys have been dubbed “Music’s Biggest Night”, but in my household the biggest music news of last night was the announcement of Primavera Sound’s ridiculous 2018 lineup (and not an awards show that snubbed SZA despite her 5 nominations and breakout year in 2017). I’m not saying that there weren’t stellar performances and speeches (because there most …

Lineup #175

In 2018, Archives, January 2018 by eseids0 Comments

March on. The government is shut down, things are pretty much a sh*t show, but Lineup #175 is here to make things a little bit better. I didn’t plan it this way, but this week’s lineup is full of powerful ladies holding it down and making killer music. Some dudes in there too, but the female artists really stand out …

Lineup #174

Day off. I’m taking full advantage of my day off from work and posting this week’s Lineup a little later than usual and catching up on my ZZs. More importantly, Lineup #174 full of mellow grooves to help you ease you down from long weekend partying, warm you up from the nasty winter weather or get you back into it …

Lineup #173

In 2018, Archives, January 2018 by eseids0 Comments

Back at it. As evidenced by the last few weeks of TML, I love year-end roundups and superlative season. That being said, it feels pretty great to get back into the swing of things and give you a Lineup full of fresh new tunes. Some of these I’ve had in my back pocket for a few weeks, others are new …

Lineup #172

In 2018, Archives, January 2018 by eseids0 Comments

Happy New Year! It’s now 2018 (feels very weird to write that), but surprise! I’m not ready to say goodbye to 2017’s music quite yet, nor am I ready to go back to 1-hour playlists. Because let’s face it – “best of” season only comes along once a year and I am definitely milking it for all it’s worth. On …

Lineup #171: Top 100 Songs of 2017

In 2017, Archives, December 2017 by eseids0 Comments

aka The 2017 Honor Roll. Here it is, the final Lineup of the year and my top 100 songs of 2017. Narrowing down a whole year of music in to 100 tracks is both my most favorite December activity and also the most agonizing. This year-end Lineup originally had over 200 songs, meaning I had to cut over half of …

Lineup #119 (aka Lineup #170)

In 2017, Archives, December 2017 by eseids0 Comments

Wait, what? No, this isn’t a typo and yes, the 2017 top tracks playlist is coming soon. However, before I share with you my favorite songs of this year, I thought it might be fun to revisit my favorites from 2016 and show them a little love too. The Monday Lineup has it’s roots in massive year end playlists (dating …
