Week Starter – Tree River

Week Starter is our Monday column where we give you a new song to help you get on out of bed & help you power on through the working week.

We probably would have made “Journey Proud” by Tree River our pick for the Week Starter / Week Ender series solely on its soaring Built to Spill meets Say Anything approach to guitar driven indie rock, but when you add in the damn near inspirational style lyrics its a no brainer. It’s a rare thing for a song (or a movie or other piece of art) to capture both the listless malaise of youth and the triumphant surge to escape the holding pattern of life as well as this does. Turn it up, take off that oversized comfort hoodie you’ve been wearing the last few months (or years) and make some moves to seize your own day.

Mike’s Monday Muse – Kimberly Morgan York

Mike’s Monday Muse is where friend of the blog, roots DJ, house show organizer, Bloomington Music Expo czar and all around nice guy Mike McAfee picks one song a week to share with the people.

Don’t listen to this unless you enjoy Dolly & Tammy, waltzing pedal steel guitar, The Drive-By Truckers, sweet twangy vocals, and real-deal country music. Found Yourself A Lady is Kimberly Morgan York‘s debut album (check out the equally stellar cut “Real Thing“) and her second record, Keep On Going, comes out later this year.
