We know it’s a Monday and you’re all cranky. We understand. Mondays Suck. There’s nothing worse than coming back to your work desk after (what we hope was) an amazing weekend. There’s nothing good about Mondays. Uhh.. well… except for of course #MixtapeMondays. 😀
SD Mixtape Mondays has been cheering you up on this dreadful day with amazing music for the last 23 episodes and we are here again to make your Mondays just a little bit better. But this time it’s going to be a little bit different. This time, the songs will not be from youtube, they will be from lishn.com .
( Lishn.com is a music streaming platform based in Nepal where you can discover new and amazing music artists that you might not have heard of, but should. And every time you lishn to a song, the artist will make a buck out of it.)
I am Aayush from lishn.com and Welcome to the first SD+Lishn Mixtape Mondays. And here’s our pick of songs on lishn designed to help you get through horrid Mondays.
Now calm down. Have a sip of your coffee. We’ll get through this together, Okay? 🙂
Lets start things a little slow with an instrumental lead guitar track titled Its All Right which will put you right in the mood to relax and start the day. This instrumental by Sabin Timalsena will actually make you feel that things are all right and not as bad as you feel they are.
Then we go on to another instrumental called Forever In Space by Sabin Timalsena again. This trance-psychedelic-ish track will calm your nerves and hopefully dial down your “Cranky” Knob.
Laugh a little
You can’t have a good day without some comedy. The next track is titled Foolmati in which the rapper Balen, a wizard of words, hilariously depicts his frustration brought about by a love interest, very elegantly referred to as Foolmati. You cannot help but smile as the story unfolds. And if you’re someone who has gone through similar experience, you might even relate to it a little.
Time for some NepHop
Then we have Mad Zone with Timi Nai Hau – feat. Sugam Pokharel, a song you’ve heard before, but this one has a different vibe than the one you know. It’s the original track on their official album which is slower with a chill vibe compared to the funky pumped up sound that we know. But you’ll love it just as much.
And then we have Keti Timi, the song that swept the nation by a storm and had everybody dancing to its folk-hiphop sound back in 2002. Nostalgic, right?
No matter what life goes on
This song might resonate with you the most. ChronicZ, a brilliant hip hop producer, has laid out this Jazz+Techno track telling you that life sucks, but its okay. No matter what life goes on and you just gotta do what you gotta do.
Malai Man Parchha Keti Nepali
A beautiful love song by Sugam Dahal. One of my personal favorites, this song is so good and beautiful it usually makes me murder the repeat button on my music player. It’s a wonder why many people don’t know about this guy.
Next. We have 2 fun songs by a 3-men-band called Ulto Pulto (Cool name.. IKR.)
Some Ooh Oooh’s
Baaja, the band, is so good that they sound almost surreal. Baaja is the most organic sound that you will have had heard in a long long time.
Timi ra Ma
Pushpa Sangam is a duo of two very talented musicians Pushpa and Sangam (duhh) . A song that they released for Valentine ’s Day, Timi Ra Ma is exactly what love would sound like if it had a sound. Just beautiful.
