Ah, Memorial Day Weekend. The unofficial start of Summer (well, everywhere else but San Francisco where our Summer really begins with Labor Day). But regardless of where you are, I think we can all agree that it’s starting to feel a lot like Summer, especially in Lineup #141.
Maybe it’s the fact that Chromeo just remixed Lorde, or that Carly Rae released another one of her 250 or so cut songs from 2015’s E•MO•TION. Or perhaps it’s because Selena Gomez dropped a new single that is David Byrne approved or maybe it’s just the amount of 80s Italo-disco that’s featured in the stellar second season of Aziz Ansari’s “Master of None” (which I have been binging on all weekend).
My opinion? It’s all of the above. Plus the fact that I’m boarding a plane to Barcelona in 36 hours, lacing up my Adidas Ultra Boosts and – unlike Frank Ocean – heading to Primavera Sound for 3 days of dusk ’til dawn music by the Balearic Sea.
So yeah, this Monday is better than my average. And if yours isn’t? Lineup #141 should help fix that.
Until next Monday.
