Single: parking lot – early

This song is about waking up early in Los Angeles and the general atmosphere of the hazy, laidback, melancholic early morning periods in the city.

This is the sound of 2020 for me. I love it. I could fully immerse myself into the sound. Let’s swim with me.

Single: Lottery – Motion Sickness

We wrote our first single during a period of change in our lives; we were moving back home to Toronto from Glasgow where we had been living for a year, and entering into our final year of university without any idea about what we would be doing after. Out of this sense of anxiety and excitement came the concept for the song “Motion Sickness”, a song that is both soothing and unsettling in equal measure. After we had finished writing the song, we spent the next couple months practising and finally recording the song in our home studio in Toronto. The recording features not only our voices and guitars, but also a dense atmospheric production style using synths, strings and various forms of vocal manipulation, which help to enhance the overwhelming feeling that the song is meant to convey. The song is quite long – exactly 7 minutes – but we think of it as an opportunity to slow down and step away from the frenzy of everyday life, an attempt to perhaps alleviate the kind of motion sickness that the song is about.

I love reading stories about how songs were made. I am also enjoying this fresh band with their first new single. I hear a lot of British (Scottish) folk influence in this and I love it.

Single: Wild Manes – Cicadas

Cicadas is a vocal harmony-heavy indie-rock tune with energy and grit, but a pop-leaning catchiness.

Wild Manes hails from Brooklyn, NY. Three female vocalists and a barrage of vocal harmonies, big guitars and big moments.

A perfect fit for my Monday morning at work. A little bit of boost. I recommed a good dosage of indie rock to kick your day.

Beach Vacation arose from a small town in Washington. After playing at a high school talent show, the group decided to get together and start a band.

Single: La Palma – Ohio

“Ohio” is a single from La Palma’s forthcoming second EP. We decided to release it early because it feels especially relevant in this uncertain moment of social distancing due to COVID-19. It is a song of reassurance in a time of transition and disconnection.

La Palma, is a musical duo of Chris Walker and Tim Gibbon, based out of Philadelphia and San Francisco. Working between two cities, La Palma’s music is created correspondence-style, passing recordings back and forth to build textured compositions that glean from everyday sounds and experiences, steeped in beachy psych-pop and indie folk.

La Palma reminds me a lot of my favorites Baseball Gregg. Tropical indie pop.

Album: Clarence Kelly – Bull Boy Grows His Horns

I love to share new, fresh music but also I love to go back and re-discover older stuff. No music is too old to be discovered and no one should think otherwise.

Clarence Kelly is an independent musician from Orlando Florida, currently residing in Nashville Tennessee.
He creates music that blends his love of analog and electronic production. In the words of one fan “Clarence Kelly’s music represents at once both variety and familiarity, something that is right on the tip of your tongue but seems quite different at the same time.”.

I am honored we were able to work with Candy in the beginning. He “grew up” a lot since then and he has a new single/video out. It’s amazing and I still love his music. I think one day Candy will be as big as Tame Impala or other Australian bands and I just would be smiling in my bedroom…

Single: Jacqueline Tucci – Fear

Hailing from Toronto, Canada, Jacqueline Tucci combines clear-cut, catchy songwriting with a wide range of tones and sounds. Warm vocals accompany steady rock rhythms and melodic lead riffs, lending her music a familiar and friendly sound.

After years of honing her songwriting abilities as a solo acoustic act, Jacqueline is now making the transition to full-band arrangements, driven by a desire to branch out musically, and to explore new genres and sonic landscapes. She is not afraid to cross genres and always has an ear out for new influences to draw from. She will release her debut EP, Jungle Sounds, in 2020.

So happy to discover another strong female artist from Canada. Keep them coming at us!

Single: Gaspard Eden – Nothing

Gaspard Eden is a singer/song-writer hailing from Quebec City. As a seasoned French-Canadian musician, Gaspard Eden has carved out his own path by taking the 60’s and 70’s aesthetic and filtering it through a 90’s and early 2000’s lens. Utilizing songwriting for cathartic release, Gaspard Eden creates lush soundscapes to evoke a wide range of emotions.

“Nothing” is Gaspard Eden’s first single from the idiosyncratic Soft Power LP. There are many ways to achieve boredom, and Eden peers candidly at what we’re really doing when we’re doing nothing. With its ethereal guitar hooks, divebomb fuzz lines and uninhibited melodies, “Nothing” is an anomalous soundtrack for life’s mundane situations.

indie rock/folk/pop from Quebec City

“Cherry Gross is what happens when you leave your personality outside for too long. It’s a series of good haircuts on a bad head. It’s the super glue under your bandaid. It’s baking you a pie on your birthday. It’s dragging you home. And it’s blooming unseasonably early.”

Single: Project Orange – Ctrl + Esc

I am so happy to share with you another great indie band from the Philippines.

The first of a number of guitar pop singles, Ctrl + Esc is the landmark release of Bacolod City’s happy-go-lucky indie popsters under the name Project Orange. It all started with a home recording demo released in 2018 that made waves with college students in their home province that eventually led to a buzz in the Manila (Philippines) indie scene. This 2019 studio version is their first proper release under independent pop label Lilystars Records. The mid-tempo groove is infectious, with Diana Mapa’s delicate voice and lyricism suggests playful coquetry to lose control, like youngsters do.

I am really jamming to this.
