Another discovery from the Netherlands – a folkish singer-songwriter. The video is very hippie-looking, fitting perfectly for the atmosphere produced by music. A very enjoyable. So happy there are more great artists to discover from Europe.

Single: Laveda – Better Now

A new music project coming out of New York State (Albany & Brooklyn). Dreamy catchy indie pop. Very enjoyable. I am so into lyrics:

Find me a neverland
Where we see no end
Hold me and my hand
Sleep still while I can
Find us a neverland

Singles: Kate Brunotts – Bicycle Spokes & Hugsrdrugs

Two singles from Kate Brunotts. Kate is from Nothern Virginia, but lives now in NYC and produces all her music in her own bedroom. I deliberately posted both singles as a comparison of how both songs are different, but still so good. I love it when the artist is able to make two different tracks and each has its own specifics. I am excited to hear more from this artist in the future. I definitely recommend checking her music.

You can find more music at Spotify.

Single: Cuesta Loeb – wasted

This track is so good. I have listened to it so many times, I stopped counting. The vocals are just perfect and I love the guitar parts.

I recommend you read this interesting bio about artist:

NYC native, Cuesta Loeb, comes from a family of musicians. Born to world-renowned jazz guitarist, Chuck Loeb, and Spanish singer-songwriter/actress, Carmen Cuesta, she grew up between the US and Spain, studying classical flute and bassoon. While she really enjoyed performing and playing in orchestras, Cuesta Loeb wanted to expand beyond the traditional venues of classical music. In 2015, she moved to Los Angeles and began experimenting in her own songwriting and production.

Video Premiere: JW Francis – Place I Know

I am excited about this premiere.

I have shared JW Francis’ music before on my blog and I loved it. Here is another great track with a fresh lyric video for it. I love the way this video is shot, the song perfectly fits for it. I love the chill slacker vibes. Just give this video a proper watch/listen and check out the rest of the music from this talented musician. No pointless words, just smash that play button and share further.

Single: Stray Fossa – These Days

Shimmery garage pop and indie rock from Charlottesville, VA

I love it when bands put even singles on Bandcamp so I can share it from Bandcamp. Also, it is a great way to financially support the band, because they can hardly get any money from streaming. Another great track from this band. Excited to hear more in the future.

Single: Parachute Words – Funny Heart

I have shared Parachute Words’ music before, he is also on our newest summer comp, so it makes so much sense for me to share with you the newest track Funny Heart.

Maybe it could be a great fit for our label, hm…..

Single: Greg Cameo – Room with a View

Greg Cameo is a bedroom producer and multi-instrumentalist based out of Vancouver, BC.

I am so happy when I see a band/an artist using Bandcamp. At this point, I am not sure why anyone would not be using it. There is no other platform that could compete with it. This track perfectly fits soundwise to Bandcamp aesthetics too. I am so happy I discovered it and cannot wait to play more music from this artist.
