Another week, another Weekly Roundup! Special thanks to our resident Song Wrangler Richard Parsons for compiling this week's summary - be sure to check out Castellorizon by David Gilmour on his Music to Blow Smoke Rings Across the Floor list, as well as Part 46 of Given Circumstances from Music to Tell a Tale!
Moving on, a few of us this week have gone with some pretty weekend-centric jams - Glenn from Music to Get Wild To has chosen Let's Party from Peter Zadd whilst I myself have reprised my very first track from Music to Save the World in honour of my lists first birthday - Happiness by the formidable SAGAN! Paul from Music to Shake a Hoof steals the show once again this week though with the Kon remix of Rock the Mic (feat. Taz & Inaya Day) by Mousse T!
If the weekend is still too far away for you to be worrying about yet, perhaps you need something smoother and silkier - like Tommi from Music to Celebrate Life's Tears in Heaven from the legendary Eric Clapton, or the hypnotic meditation epic Unknown by Kutiman from Andrew's Music to Write an Essay To list. Still want more like this? Brent from Music to Atone To has you covered with Nicolas Tomillion's To My Father, and Music to Grieve To keeps the vibe melodic with Hypomania from Video Compact.
Ana returns with Minha Bossa É Treta by Yzalú for all the Dali & Jay Z Lovers out there: as Richard says, it's 'not so much Bossa Nova as robotics maybe but with haunting backing and rhythmic vocals.' Meanwhile, Drake's pal Travis Scott is Noka from Music to Vibe To's choice of the week with Stargazing. While we're in the world of hip hop, Doran from Music to Rep New York is out in force with a name I'll simply shorten to Flipmode, courtesy of Busta Rhymes and friends!
Finally, we have our official musicto track of the week - My Body by lemin., brought to you by Cormac from Music to Catch Feelings To. Cormac describes this track as belonging to 'lemin's hold a: act 2 project, the second in a three-part series that will take listeners through a breakup: from sadness and depression, to anger and resentment, and finally acceptance. The series' name, "Hold A" comes from lemin's favourite N64 video game, Mario Kart, in which players hold the "A" button to accelerate. For lemin, it's a metaphor for accelerating into who we are.'
Once again, don't forget to search the #musicto hashtag for everything we have to offer, and enjoy this week's selection of incredible music! And again, a big thank you to Richard again for compiling this Roundup!
Matt & Andrew
