New Music For Your Manic Monday
The weather is getting colder, the nights longer and Mondays are even harder to manage than usual. There’s nothing like some new music and good vibes to kickstart the beginning of your week. While you went from the weekly work grind straight to partying the short-lived weekend, we were compiling the best new music releases from the week. So tune in, take a breath and take a listen to the latest from heavyweights like Azealia Banks to newcomers, Future Punx.
