Week Starter – French Alps Tiger

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.

Opening with reverby staccato guitar hits and a machine gun snare drum “Lost Boys” by French Alps Tiger flys out of that intro into a fast and nervy indie rock banger that feels a bit like Bloc Party reimagining The Strokes. It’s an organic high energy blast and was custom made to kick you out of bed and out the door into the working week.

Mike’s Monday Muse – The Mary Janes

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.

This is a Bloomington, Indiana classic. Janas Hoyt (Vulgar Boatmen) and her great band The Mary Janes put out Record No. 1 in 1998 and it’s full of rock-jangly, country-rolling tunes that always sound new. “Wish I Could Fly,” “Throwing Pennies,” “She Flies Away,” “Final Days,” and the 7:41 epic “Shooting Star” are some of my favorites.
