Time to escape into a little music:
Was a good week with new music from some of my favorite acts.
Find Someone – ARIZONA
These guys are psychically connected to me. Whenever I need a lift, they release new music that lifts me up. Check out the music video for this tune – cute overdose with the puppies and others.
Body Heat - Savoir Adore
Another piece of spot on piece Indie Pop from Paul Hammer and Lauren Zettler.
Mess - Noah Kahan
More of what makes Noah interesting and distinct.
Kick The Door – Bette Lemme
More kinetic pop from our favorite new French-Canadian artist.
I Guess I Just Feel Like – John Mayer
Yes – this was on last week's playlist but this song has overwhelmed me this week. The understated virtuosity of John Mayer on this song signals an artist with nothing left to prove at the height of his powers.

Music Video of the Week: Mark Ronson – Valerie ft Amy Winehouse
Mark dropped this the day after he won his Oscar with Lady Gaga and the timing felt strange. Nevertheless, this vintage look at the incandescent Amy Winehouse is enough to make you get teary over what might have been had she lived.
