As the weather turns and seems to be moderately more seasonal, today’s Monday Digest is being kicked off with this summery sounding acoustic song from Oddissee; a lyricist from North America’s East Coast. This live version of ‘You Know Who You Are’ features summer soul vocals from Olivier Daysoul.

Next up is the free to download latest single from Julio Bashmore, who was behind last summer’s house number one house record ‘Battle For Middle You’. The eerie synths on ‘Trogladytes’ aren’t as instantly grabbing, but the 90s soul keys that kick in, build this track up to be a disco-esque monster – you would expect nothing less from Bashmore.

We were really excited today to see that Cat Power is finally back from the four year hiatus since her last studio outing. This new track ‘Ruins’ is Chan Marshall at her most rock. One reviewer said it sounded like a stream of consciousness taking a trip around the world – I don’t know if I 100% hear that – but it definitely bodes well for the new album.

And finally, we have a wicked track from The Dead Rose Music Company. a disco drenched song that I listened to to get myself in the mood for Sunday at Lovebox this weekend. This is ‘Soothe My Mind’.
