Music Mondays: A Love Letter to Los Angeles Part I

For this week’s installment of Music Monday’s, I’ve put together a collection of songs by Los Angeles musicians. LA has an impressive roster of established as well as up-and-coming musicians, so next week I will post another mixtape by a different group of LA natives. Many of the artists featured even reference LA in their songs (Cold War Kids, Henry Clay People, Murs, & Jack’s Mannequin).
