De Hofnar - Vogelvlucht

A happy song. Nothing more to it!  Put on this jam when you are feeling low to turn your day around, or if you are already feeling gucci it will make your day SUPAGUCCI.  Stellar horns and a pretty awesome jazz flute solo.

De Hofnar is a Dutchman.  He might be able to fly, who knows.  The word “vogelvlucht” in Dutch means “bird’s eye view.”

Capital Cities - Kangaroo Court (Forever Kid Remix)

For those of you who don’t know what kangaroo court is, the internet is full of answers go look it up yourself.  When I hear this song it makes me wish I had a bunch of kangaroos that were my bros.  We would go to random people’s houses around dinner time, put on this song, and dance/smash everything and leave.  This song is “smashing!” to quote Nigel Thornberry.  

Forever Kid is from Sweden.  Man those Swedes make good music.  It might even rival their health care and public schools.

Clairy Browne & The Bangin’ Rackettes - I’ll Be Fine

A good old fashioned dancing tune with some incredible vocals and a stellar horn section.  This song really makes me wish I knew how to swing dance.  I would throw on a slick suit, grab my girl and hit the dance floor.  The problem is I don’t have a slick suit or a girl.  Nonetheless, this tune will make you dance your pants off!

Clairy Browne & The Bangin’ Rackettes, besides having the coolest band name ever, are a soulful band from Melbourne, Australia.  What’s up chinas?

Klak Tik - Reborn

This song integrates some folky sounds and harmonies, light horns, and simple percussion to give it a sound perfect for some relaxed self-reflection. Today is your day, chief.

Klak Tik are some Danes making beats out of London. They were on a Samsung commercial once. Word.

Wild Cub - Thunder Clatter

This track would pair perfectly with a montage video of a wolf cub’s coming of age adventure. This song fills the room with the kind of wild sounds to make you want to take off for the woods. See you out there.

Wild Cub is out of Nashville.

The Soul Snatchers - Good Foot Down

Put your good foot down is exactly what you will do when this funktual jam hits your eardrum.  Another soulful song that you can dance and jive to all night.  Put on a suit and some tap shoes, find a hardwood floor and let the beat take you away.  This song is so good even your parents would get down to it.  

The Soul Snatchers, believe it or not, are Dutch, and come from the town of Dordrecht, Netherlands, which automatically makes them 100 times cooler.  If you are feeling soulful and want some more check out their myspace page:

Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears - Sugarfoot

GROOOOOOOOVE.  Black Joe Lewis and his Honeybears are the real deal.  Forget honeybadger.  These guys are too sweet.  Dripping with soul, this song is reminiscent of an earlier era where people got down and danced instead of copulating on the dance floor like barbarians.  Put this on, dance, and get a little funky y’all.

If you dig this groove check out some of their other funky stuff.  Based out of Austin, Texas, Black Joe Lewis will be coming to Denver November 25 at the Bluebird Theatre.  Should be pretty fun……ky

P.S. Shoutout to Jack Coffman for showing me this song
