Morning Grind 7.12.16
These overcast skies are a nice break in the blazing sun although the humidity is still going strong with temps in the high 80’s today.
We’ve got a Song of the Day for every mood and circumstance, so you can rest assured that includes a Tuesday pick-me-up tune. Today’s featured track comes courtesy of Beirut (the one-man-band, not the country) and it’s guaranteed to put some pep in your step. Beirut blends genres like most couldn’t even imagine, from accordions and acoustic sounds to – in this case – full on electronic instrumentation. The result is an inventive and refreshing perspective that we think deserves commendation (and you know we love to give high fives). So cheers to you and cheers to Beirut! Now grab a cold brew, crank the volume and buckle up because you’re going to crush it today!
