We’ve been all over the place this past month so for May’s soundtrack I’m going international and indulging in a bit (or a lot) of wanderlust. I don’t understand most of the words in the non-English songs but that’s precisely the beauty of music: it doesn’t matter. If you have any fave international beats to share, please do. I’m always excited about new discoveries!

Since moving to London last year I’ve hardly spent any time in a car. I don’t need to in order to get around and I love it (remember when I sold mine and opted to be car-less in LA??? I know, it’s cray cray in most people’s books).
However, as we drove around the Atlas Mountains in Morocco last weekend I thought back to how much I do love one aspect of driving – the solid time for just me and my music.
I heard this song on KCRW’s Eclectic 24 yesterday and instantly pictured myself driving on the 10 freeway during sunset, completely relaxed, one arm on the steering wheel, and nodding my head to the beat. Somehow listening to the same song through my earbuds on a crowded double decker bus doesn’t quite have the same effect.
