The vessels of summer are finding their way to dock and the beach umbrellas are closing one by one, but that doesn’t mean that your uplifting adventurous spirit has to fade with the sun’s rays. August has presented us with a bounty of unique melodic sounds from all over the globe for us to sink our ears into, so strap into our MIOWthership (got jokes?) and lets take a journey that challenges the traditional rules of longitude and latitude.
Our musical quest begins in the most unlikely Moscow, Russia with a serious single from Mana Island that will turn your expectations of synth and guitar driven pop on its ear, literally. Harness that primed tonal palette and take a bit of Germany and a dab of England on a Cloud Boat back to New York. Joywave gives us a taste of what they can do with a strong female led track like HAERT’S, All The Days. You’ll be Swept away to Sweden and say hello to Mons Montis and Little Children before we say Bon Voyage alongside Marlene. Swinging large satchels of souvenirs already, head Down Under and pick up Another with Seekae and Embrace the one and only Hayden James. New Zealand is just a jump over so why not scuff up the Tennis Court with the undeniable Lorde who seems to be on her way up and out to see the world with us. Polishing up our first revolution around the world with the first 10 songs, Neo-Safari ushers us back to MIOW headquarters in Dallas for a breather in the form of Sunshine and nostalgia.
Our monthly 8 hour playlists may seem daunting, but don’t be intimidated. They are curated to fill a whole day at work or to rock your party without having to man the decks. Break them up into digestible chunks during your lunch breaks or in your car ride home. Favorite our playlist on your SoundCloud and come back to it at your leisure. This playlist doesn’t stop giving it’s all, from Indie to House to Hip-hop to Acoustic. It’s one unique take after another for days, weeks and months to come no matter what your mood. We hope you enjoy it half as much as we have! Dig in!
