Lineup #151

In 2017, Archives, August 2017 by eseids0 Comments

Fogust. Summer in San Francisco is a funny little thing. I am of the opinion that our real Summer starts at the beginning of September exactly when everyone else’s ends. Right now, Fogust (i.e. Fog + August) is in full swing. Even so, there’s something special about Summer in this city (just ask the people who were here in ’67). …

Lineup #150

In 2017, Archives, July 2017 by eseids0 Comments

Introducing The Monthly Write-up. Typically I heed Kendrick’s advice and stay pretty humble, but today I’m giving myself permission to be proud of the fact that I’ve created my 150th consecutive Lineup. I also just checked, and there is no known limit to the number of playlists a user can make on Spotify so we’ll be good to go for …

Lineup #149

In 2017, Archives, July 2017 by eseids0 Comments

LA Live. I spent this past weekend in LA at what has quickly become one of my favorite music festivals – FYF. As I write this, there’s still one more day of music left, but I already got more than my moneys worth with top notch performances by Missy Elliott, A Tribe Called Quest, Frank Ocean, Noname, Anderson .Paak,┬áThe Black …

Lineup #148

Hello from the other side. This week’s Lineup is brought to you live from the East Coast. Without gushing too hard, I just had the greatest weekend reuniting with my BFFs from summer camp in Cape Cod. It had been years since we’d been able to spend time like this all together, and it was simply the best. Also, if …

Lineup #147

B-A-B-Y. I saw two movies in the movie theater this weekend, which is a very big deal for someone like me who can count the amount of times I do this per year on less than one hand. One of these movies was Baby Driver, which for me was equally about the plot line and the soundtrack that backed it …

Lineup #146

In 2017, Archives, July 2017 by eseids0 Comments

Free to be. Let’s get straight to the point. Lineup #146 has absolutely nothing to do with Fourth of July, BBQing, America or anything of the sort. In fact, there’s more Norwegian disco on here than there are American classics, but this week is all about getting to celebrate the freedom we have to do what we want, and these …

Lineup #145

Ready for the (long) weekend. This past two day weekend felt really short. Right? I’m officially ready for the long holiday weekend, and I’m planning to get through the next 5 days with a healthy dose of Lineup #145. (And Lorde’s Melodrama, who am I kidding). And while it’s pretty damn cool that The Monday Lineup has been helping to …

Lineup #144

Back in the US of A. After a whirlwind trip to Europe, I’ve made it back home. I’m still catching up on all the new music that was released while I was gone, but here’s what I do know: SZA’s debut album Ctrl and Lorde’s sophomore album Melodrama are both stunning in their own ways and you should go listen …

Lineup #143

Summer of Love. I’m writing this post from one of my favorite places in the world – Berlin. I have to keep pinching myself that I got to go to Primavera in Barcelona, and then hop on a plane to spend over a week pretending to be a Berliner (and then off to Norway to see my parents – hi …
