Hari & Sukhmani

If you haven't already discovered the delicious melodic stylings of this musical duo, it's time to crawl out from your noise-cancelling rock and smell the music. This tune is the perfect combination of up-tempo and mellow, and laced with the vocal fluidity of Sukhmani's raspy (and still, somehow, ridiculously mellifluous) baritone, the song makes for a perfect wake-up number.

The Clown On The 22nd Floor

This bunch of Delhi boys are as anti the stereotype as can be—and their music is straight out of a jazz collective; except imagine them rehearsing in their basement and spazzing out with SFX like train whistles and bits of old Bollywood court drama films thrown in for a measure of eccentricity. This song is a dream to get dressed to, with a little classy-*ss shaking guaranteed. 

Together Again

Shaa'ir n Func

Okay, so Monica Dogra is a bit of an acquired taste, but the one place she's wont to shine is when she's one-half of Shaa'ir n Func. With her vocal gymnastics and Rudolph Corriea's great sound-mixing, this particular song is possibly a little too upbeat for the sedate morning-list aficionado, but it's good for dead-face-on kinda mornings when you just need a little kick-in-the-pants soundtrack to get you going. 

Set Me Free

Soulmate

Anyone who ever believed there's no such thing as a good jazz-blues band in India will have their argument blown straight out of their judgmental waters by Soulmate. The smooth riffs are somewhere in between that Nat King Cole and Eric Clapton-esque range, and positively devourable listening. This particular number has empowering enough lyrics to match for you to stop you and sing in the midst of your morning floss session. 

Frank Brazil

Ska Vengers

This brilliant song by this delightfully avant-garde reggae-ska band is the ultimate commute song. The fluid melody works well with the tabla beats, and it'll give looking out the window as you watch the road go by a befitting feeling of beautiful melancholy. Plus, you know, really catchy.
