A Case of the Fridays

It’s the end of the work week, kids. Put your headphones on, listen to some mp3s, and stare off into space pretending to do some work.

Anyway, I’m really liking Ben Lee’s new album, Awake Is The New Sleep - it's shimmering, melodic acoustic-pop at it’s finest. Try some “Into the Dark.”

The Philly-based band Marah is pretty much my favorite act to see live. Those bastards don’t have a DC date on their current tour, but I can hope, right? So for now I'll just have to rock out at home to “It’s Only Money Tyrone.”

Finally, need to get a jump on the weekend? Take a listen to the manic danceable energy of “Afro Lover,” by James to get things started.
