Mixtape Monday: What I am Listening to and Why

I've collected tons of great new music lately and would love to share with you some of my favorites:

1. Oblivion - M83 (feat. Susanne Sundfør) (I am so proud that M83 has finally scored a movie.  All their music is already so cinematic and epic that it just makes sense for M83, aka Anthony Gonzales, to create music for films. I can't wait to see what soundtrack he creates next. Although the movie was blah, the Oblivion's music is outstanding.)

2. Recover - CHVRCHES (Quickly becoming one of my new favorite acts - super 80's/indie electronica.)

3. Mirrors - Justin Timberlake (20/20 is oh so good, and I can't wait for part 2 - releasing in September.)

4. Over the Love - Florence + the Machine (Fresh off The Great Gatsby Soundtrack - releasing tomorrow. It's going to be amazing.)

5. Royals - Lorde (Keep your eyes peeled for this funky-fresh New Zealand act. For fans of: Marina and the Diamonds and Lily Allen)

6. The Mother We Share - CHVRCHES (see #2, and their songs are super catchy)

7. Pretty Boy - Young Galaxy (Love the lyrics - I need to get more music from this band)

8. Step - Vampire Weekend (This is a single off their forthcoming album, Modern Vampires of the City, a spring-y tune with a Baroque pop twist.)

9. Wildest Moments - Jessie Ware (I've been obsessed with her album Devotion and it's 80's pop/90's R&B vibe.)

10. Open - Rhye (It's unreal how wonderful Rhye's debut album Woman is. It's Sade for the 2013 set but mysteriously sung by a man. You have to hear it to understand and fall in love with Rhye's sexy sound.)

11. Darling Are You Gonna to Leave Me - London Grammar (sultry and summery)

12. Lost and Found  - Tessa Rose Jackson (for fans of: Of Monsters and Man and Jaymay)

13. The Fall - Rhye (Have I mentioned how amazing they are? Do yourself a favor and just get their album - you'll still love it in 30 years.)

14. Hey Now - London Grammar

15. No to Love - Jessie Ware (Simple but funky)
