Single: WY – Swedish Summer

Sweden. When people ask where you would like to live in Europe, I usually answer with Sweden. One reason is a music scene there. I don’t know why it is the way it is, but Swedish music scene is producing many interesting artiss and band WY is one of them. Probably you never heard about them before. I have not, but I am very excited that I do know them now. Their beautiful track “Swedish Summer” got me right away. Somehow it captures everything I love about Swedish indie scene. Vocals, guitars, synths, Nordic vibes. I will listen to this track over and over and cannot wait to listen to whole album on Bandcamp in near future.

You can get the whole album on vinyl at Bandcamp.

Video: Glenn Echo – Overwhelm

American folk music is so inspiring. For me it is like entering a completely different music world. I love it. I love to experience something that everyday life doesn’t bring. Overwhelmed by mainstream sound from radio (my coworkers listen to mainstream Slovák pop radio which playry every single day the same songs over and over) I dive into folk music as it was a safe (music) haven where I can just rest and enjoy the beauty of music. This song is a perfect tool to escape the world and just have good (music) time.

Video: NTHNL – Away We Go (feat. John Cushing)

I am finding hardly words to describe what I like about this song, it’s very interesting and each listening is bringing a new angle of discovery. Love how simple and still beautiful are instruments, vocals and sounds in this track. Once you start listening to it, you want to listen again. Writing about music is very hard for me as I always have troubles to find the right words. Therefore I always suggest people to trust my taste and give music I recommend a try. Just start track.

Video: CATSIGNS – Smokin’ The Clouds

What is Californian vibe? This is it. Guitars that are so surfy, vocals that are lazy. video that looks like VHS. Me likey. I start this track, lay back and dream that I am somewhere else. Not in Slovakia, not in rainy day, not in city. Summer, beach, ocean, breeze. Try it too…

Video: Donny Electric – You Make Me Oh!

I remember when Jacob aka Johnny Utah (Z Tapes) told me about this new promising artist from Philly – Donny Electric (FKA Dream League Soccer). I listened to some songs and was totally into it. And today there is a new video for his latest single. It is not only a great song, but the video is making it even better. I am in love with it and watched like 10 times already. I find Philly scene very interesting and I am always excited to discover more and more artists from this great city.

Can you feel the vibe?

Single: Grace Gillespie – Human (Heart)

Grace Gillespie is London based singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer.

“Grace Gillespie is supported by PRS Foundation’s Women Make Music” – footnote at Grace’s website. I always loved music made by women. Unfortunately it is usually very underrated in music world dominated by men. I am always excited to find a new promising female artist, especially coming out of Europe – Great Britain to be exact. If you were a fan of Florence or any other female artists with strong vocals, you would enjoy this sweet track. I just love this one.

Single: Kuri – The Great Orator

Kuri is a recording artist based in Abbotsford, British Columbia. I read it on his site. I usually do not go through all information on artists’ website, but I went through his bio and found this interesting statement: “Creativity relies on vision in a figurative and literal sense.” Also this description from site sums up his music best: “The foundation remains rooted in organic performances, classically infused orchestration, jazzy freeform spirit, cinematic ambition, and ultimately inspired observation.” I really enjoy listening to this new single. It’s beautifully developed with multiple layers of interesting sounds worth diving deeper in.

“I hope my music brings healing in some way to listeners,” he [Kuri] leaves off. “I want to be candid and hopefully encourage others to do the same. I hope they feel something.”

Single: Ugly Ghost – Aubrey Plaze

How many bands do you know from Providence, Rhode Island? I cannot remember any. I am so happy I discovered Ugly Ghost music and it is very shame that he does not have a bigger following. His newest single “Aubrey Plaza” is full for interesting guitar riffs and very catchy, poetical lyrics. I really enjoyed these lines:

“So what’s worth still thinking about?
What’s worthy of my attention? What deserves my toxic doubt?
As I turn to stone in a crowd
Engulfed in assumed perception, firing synapses throughout”

You can find his music on Bandcamp or Spotify and in our Playlist.

Video: Safe As Houses – Lucky Lucky

Canada always produce music that is little bit different from the one made in USA and I am always wanting to explore it. This track “Lucky Lucky” is perfect example of it. Love the folkish influence and beautiful violin parts in connection to more pop vocals. And the video with beautiful shots is just a great addition to everything. Excited to hear more from this band.

Video: Ethan Kerr – Eleven

Ethan’s music is so captivating I had to listen to it few times before I was able to write these few words. Very refreshing sound, very chill song. I was always curious about music from Philadelphia and I am glad this scene has produced another new artist worth following. The video for single “Eleven” is very enjoyable too. Love the coloring. You can find his music on Spotify and in our April Playlist too.

Single: Teal Moss – Lewis

indie pop from Denton, TX

A sweet fresh track from Steven Fischer, Texas-based musician, who is just about to move to LA. Thats all info about him I was able to find. “Lewis” is the first single from upcoming album and it is promising a lot. Really enjoying its chilly indie vibes. I am imaging sitting on a porch in sunny day in California, enjoying a cold drink and listening to good muic. Just press play and dive in with me.

Excited for the full album and hopefully bright future for this young musician.
