Hello. You’re looking lovely this early in the morning.
Mondays can be hard, so I made you a mix. These are all songs from 2014 or songs I first heard in 2014, so consider it a state-of-the-year-so-far mix, minus the obvious (the Hold Steady, St. Vincent, Beck, and so on). All of these songs make me happy.
I know music videos aren’t a really thing anymore, but the “Water Fountain” video is worth watching, even though it has more of a Pee–Wee’s–Playhouse-on-Saturday-morning vibe than a case of the Mondays.
