The weekend is finally upon us. It's also the end of the month. To all of you working in an office and scrambling to finish your "month-end", take this time for a breather. Enjoy a beach...a park...a backyard patio. Wherever you can find a peaceful space. You'll be all refreshed for the last day of the month on Monday!
As we prepare for what is typically the hottest month in many parts of Europe, and many other parts of the world for that matter, don't forget to stay chilled and hydrated.
Congrats to Portugal, The Man for retaining the number one position this week! Alex Cortiz and Bria Skonberg continue to swap positions, as these top three songs vie for the songs of the Summer 2017!
The three John's (DeJohnette, Medeski, and Scofield) along with bassist Larry Grenadier, collectively known as Hudson, settle in nicely into fourth with their cover of Woodstock.
Sambox remains in the middle of the pack, continuing his position in the playlist rotation. Lofi/chillhop artist, halberd, continues to make fans as his shy request for Coffee On The Beach touches the hearts of all of you.
Phigroa makes the jump from Bubbling Under with another track from his wonderful Easy Does It EP.
We all have a soft spot for Lana Del Rey here, so you just know that we had to decide on a track to play from her new album. That being said, we have settled on Heroin, an interesting track no less. What do you think? Let me know.
If you have any comments, please pass them along through the website at www.thisislounge.com - even if it's just to say "hi" and tell me where you're listening from. Music is universal, and it's a delight when I hear someone across the world share in the choices played on the station.
Thanks for supporting the station and the artists. By the way, stay tuned for some Summer swag to be announced soon.
