Lineup #15

Let’s get happy. This week’s Lineup is a good ol’ fashion pick me up. Recently NMM reminded me that the kind of music that we listen to has such an incredible power to influence how we feel. So whatever it is your dealing with on this final Monday of the year – sitting in bad holiday traffic, regretting that $200 you spent …

Lineup #14

In Archives, December 2014, Honor Roll by eseids1 Comment

The 2014 Honor Roll. I’m gonna keep this short because this week it’s all about the music. Simply put, these are my favorite tracks from SoundCloud this year put into one mega 7 hour Lineup. The Honor Roll is far and away my favorite playlist to make every year, and really the inspiration the creation of TML – so I hope you …

Lineup #13

Let the recaps continue! This week’s Lineup was inspired by my favorite albums of 2014. The keyword here is favorite. I am in no way calling these the “best” or “greatest” albums released this year. I can already count a handful of albums that critics are loving on right now that are 100% absent from my list. I’m also breaking …

Lineup #12

Let’s do it live. If 2013 was the year for album releases, 2014 (at least for me) was the year for live music. In total, I will clock in at 28 concerts and 3 festivals meaning that approximately every 10.4 days I was experiencing live music of some kind. And while I’m purposely avoiding calculating how much money I spent, I …

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Yep, it’s Superlative Season. Time to decide the best of the best, the worst of the worst and reflect on everything that was brought into the music world in 2014. But I don’t want to get ahead of myself. The remaining four weeks of 2014 still have a lot more in store – James …

Thanks. I know it’s cliche but if you’re reading this right now, thank you. Whether it’s your first time to The Monday Lineup or you’ve been gchatting me every Monday morning to tell me your favorite song choices since Lineup #1, I am having just the best time in the world sharing music with you and for lack of better words, I …

Lineup #9

I’ll cover you. The idea to do a Lineup consisting entirely of covers came to me last week. At first I was so excited about the idea, but then I almost abandoned ship. First of all, there’s a million covers out there. Think about any concert you go to – 9 times out of 10 an artist does a cover …

Lineup #8

Making The Lineup. While definitely not as exciting as MTV’s hit series Making The Video, I thought I’d share with you how this week’s Lineup was created – in case you are curious. If you aren’t, feel free to just hit play and I promise I won’t be offended. Scouts honor. I’m obsessed with my Evernote. I keep a running list …

Lineup #7

Deep dive into Fall. If Tropical House was the sound of the Summer, Deep House is definitely the “it” sound this Fall. While the genre originated back in the 1980s in Chicago, it’s having quite the renaissance with artists like the UK’s Disclosure, Gorgon City and Duke Dumont reinventing the sound for our generation and bringing it to the masses. Deep House has a much …

I know, just what you were always wishing for! Check it out on the left side of the site. This week’s Lineup …
