While her debut album "Is Your Love Big Enough" doesn't drop in the US till August 7th, pre-sale is available now AND you will not be disappointed.
Watch her lovely video "Forget" below and let her soft airy vocals, biting lyrics, and fresh beats take you away for a moment.

Sometimes You Just Can't Wait

Okay Okay I know it's not New Music Monday BUT today is this girl's pay day so it's equally exciting and deserves a little desk dancing/shoulder shake action. Take a break from "working" and check out the new song by BAKER who so graciously forgives my impatience as he's "Not Gonna Wait" either....
ahhh* sorry I just couldn't help myself.  

Now finish your work and go to Happy hour.

New Music Monday 7.16.12

Monday is steadily becoming my favorite day of the week as I get to share the musical wonders I stumble upon for your listening enjoyment. Some are old favorites while others are brand new jems, either way I will never deliver less than the best. This number by The Cults is infectiously happy and will get your heart a flutter as soon as you hear the xylophone tinker in. While the original is perfect, 2 Bears remixed it so expertly, who knew such a great song could get any better. Have a listen and go. Dancing at your desk strongly encouraged.

Get Your Mind Right...

So it's Friday in a not so sunny and cloudy Los Angeles. I personally love these rare gloomy days but today it's hard. Sometimes you need a little sparkle in your earspace to get you back on track. One lady that can always set my mind right is Yukimi Nagano of Little Dragon and I think you need her today too.

Artist Inspiration- Katie Monahan

Us designers and creative types get inspiration from all over. Whether its traversing the globe to far away and exotic places, admiring a runway show from the side of a catwalk, people watching on the bustling streets of a busy metropolis, hearing the pure and honest sound of great music, or being visually impacted by an artist's work you see in a gallery. All of these everyday delights to our senses keep pushing us forward to create and share more for the world to see.
I had one of those life altering experiences at Downtown Los Angeles' monthly artwalk not too long ago. Artist Katie Monahan has a way with layering color, fluid strokes, and textures that when combined make these dimensional striking pieces you can't help but lose yourself for hours in.

For all you L.A. locals, artwalk is this thursday the 12th downtown, make sure to stop by and see her work, you will be thankful you did. In the mean time make sure to stop by her website for the full range of her work and contact info. Click here and I'll send you directly there.
