lick the snow from my eyes, underneath the blue sky, all i need is my bike, wake me up in july
- Who: Monika Brodka
- What: Indie dance pop, like Niki & The Dove, Catcall, Ladyhawke
- Where: Warsaw, Poland + Facebook
- When: The LAX EP is out now
- Why: Don’t let Monika’s status as the 2004 winner of Polish Pop Idol (their American Idol) fool you, she is making music much more grooveable then any of our winners. “Varsovie” (below) is a slow building tribute to her adopted home city and the video is a beautiful portrait of the cultures at play in the capital city. Needless to say it makes me miss the city I started this website in. But that longing is replaced by moving when the Kamp! remix of “Dancing Shoes” hits my speakers.
