I hope everyone is enjoying their Summer. So much to do outside....who wants to be stuck inside listening to internet radio? I know...I know.... Well, if you're like me, you bring the indoors out, along with a good wireless Bluetooth speaker. (Warning! Shameless plug coming...) Personally, I have this great little Bose SoundLink that is perfect on the patio. But check out some others available.
When your walking the city, there should be numerous free wifi locations that you can take advantage of. Keep an eye out for that. A welcome coffee at a cafe with wifi will be that much more relaxing with your ears tuned into This is Lounge on your fave radio app. (One of the ones I use is radio.net's, available in the App Store.......sorry, another shameless plug.)
Now, on to the content....
What a week for music! Congrats to Portugal, The Man's remix of Feel It Still for topping the chart this week. Alex Cortiz slips into number two, and (surprise, surprise!) Bria Skonberg's cheeery love song, How I Know, has become the fan fun fave of the Summertime sounds, shooting up to number three! It must be the heat! So, a little something there for everyone.
I must also point out that Sambox continues to maintain his place on the chart, with Jasmin Sambac! Thanks to your votes at www.thisislounge.com, your input helps determine the chart. Keep those votes coming.
We have a new entry making the leap from Bubbling Under this week - Soundcloud find, .anxious., comes in at number nine, with his chillhop/lofi track Cross Counter TV.
Speaking of Soundcloud, if you've not heard the news, their life may be ending soon, as they are losing money and may be down within the next three months or so. Let's hope they can get things together, along with an infusion of cash, to keep things going.
Anway, on to the music. Thanks for all your support. Once again, a shoutout to Phigroa who has been a "champion of the cause", spreading the word about This is Lounge. I am so grateful.
Tune in and see what all the fuss is about!
