As we inch closer and closer to the official start of summer, the days get longer and country music seems to sound better and better. In light of that, today I'm bringing you an artist who is certainly influenced by country but is by no means confined to that, or any, single genre.

I am excited to report my first sun burn of 2014 here in New England! The sun is making the effort to bless our midday lax games and temperatures are stabbing at 70 degrees on really, really good days. I'm already imagining board shorts and plastic shades...the anticipation of summer is more exciting than ever given the harsh, windy, snowy winter we've had here in the nation's northeast.

College lacrosse and accelerometers are finally coming together on a large scale. A study launched at Sacred Heart University is monitoring head impacts with accelerometers for the entire season. Along with the sensor data, the study will utilize neurocognitive measures (tests of thinking and memory), IQ scores, mood assessments, and drug dependency screens to compare to impact data and any diagnosed concussions. Many of these factors have been shown to change after a concussion, and this study will examine how changes are linked to cumulative head forces as well, measured by the helmet sensors.

Spring is so close here in New England I can almost smell it! West coast readers, get outside on your Monday afternoon and enjoy what you've got. In order to nudge the warm sun and good vibes to come our way, I'm delivering some excellent laying back/hammock/beach music for this week's Music Monday. I introduce to you, Current Swell!

I hope everyone across the LAS universe, near and far, is having a wonderful Monday and enjoyed a solid weekend of lax. Here in the states, it seems like just about everyone is hitting a bout of bad weather. That being said, today's featured album is one with which you can kick back and relax tonight as the storms howl away outside.
