Monthly Mix #4: June 2015

June 2015:
A good mix of catchy tunes for the summer.

1. St. Lucia - "The Night Comes Again"
Young Buffalo took the stage to this song last month and it stuck with me.

2. The John Butler Trio - "Livin' in the City"
I spent an extra night in Vegas just to see JBT.

3. Rayland Baxter - "Yellow Eyes"
Preview single for the upcoming album.  I really like this song.

4. Toots & the Maytals - "Gee Wiz"
This isn't the best Toots song, but he sounds so happy singing it.

5. ZZ Top - "TV Dinners"
I recently started getting into ZZ Top.  When this song hits 1:24, you'll see why I picked it.

6. Orgone - "I'm a Woman (I'm a Backbone)"
Just saw them in Vegas. I also interviewed them on my podcast.

7. Saigon - "Blown Away"
Sometimes I feel it may come across that I don't listen to hip-hop.  That isn't true.  I believe a lot of today's emcees either have nothing to say or they don't have a flow.  Saigon is an exception.

8. Dawes - "Right on Time"
I was let down by the new album as a whole, but this pulsing, guitar-forward song stood out.

9. Tokyo Police Club - "Miserable"
Just interviewed Dave Monks for my podcast.  This is an infectious number by his band Tokyo Police Club.

10. The Arcs - "Stay in My Corner"
Dan Auerbach's latest side project strikes gold with this lush dreamscape.
