Music Monday: “Miami 2 Ibiza”

Hey Milieunairs,

Swedish House Mafia - Until One (Official Album Cover)It is Music Monday and thus time for another Vivaciously Varietal Vibe!  

Rationale: I may not be the kind of person who goes clubbing every weekend but I am definitely one who enjoys a song with a good beat. Especially one that I can suggestively gyrate my hips to. Oh yeah, that’s right!

Unlike most people, I almost never listen to the words of a song. To me, music is all about the melody, tone and beat.

Music Monday: ‘Kim and Jesse’

Hey Milieu Pals,

It is Music Monday and thus time for another Vivaciously Varietal Vibe!

Rationale: Another fantastic Zune Marketplace discovery and purchase. Below is a succinct overview of the album and expresses almost exactly the way I feel when listening to M83.

“Like fellow Frenchmen Air and Daft Punk, M83‘s Anthony Gonzalez has the knack for making sounds others might think of as outdated, or even tacky, into music that feels stylish and fresh. Saturdays=Youth lives up to its evocative title, but the youth it captures is filtered through nostalgia for the unrepentantly fake sounds of the ’80s, transforming them into delicate fantasy pop. Synths whoosh like wind tunnels and ping like lasers, guitars are whipped into ethereal froth, the drums are robotic and proud of it, and the production reproduces the cleaner-than-clean, almost brittle style of the era almost too perfectly” (Heather Phares, All Music Guide)

‘Kim and Jesse’ by M83 from the album ‘Saturdays = Youth’

Music Monday: ‘Happy Up Here’

    Hey Milieu Pals,

    It is Music Monday and thus timRoyksoppJunior681e for another Vivaciously Varietal Vibe!

     

  • Flavour: Electronic

  • Artist: Röyksopp

  • Album: Junior

  • Song: Happy Up Here

Rationale: Quite simply, this is the newest album of music to have been added to my collection, courtesy of the fantastic Zune Marketplace. I have always enjoyed Röyksopp with the unforgettable ‘Finding Leno’ and the unmistakeable ‘Eple’ being the two songs which introduced me towards the mystique of this electro pop duet, over eight years ago. The album is brilliant Röyksopp fare and worth a purchase if this is the kind of music that you enjoy.
