“Golda grew up in both Chicago and San Diego to Ukrainian parents who only spoke Russian in the house. At the ripe age of 5 years old, golda discovered her love for music when she taught herself how to sing opera.”
A young and talented musician, so happy to see her making such beautiful music.
I am so excited to finally share something from Finland. I know so little about the music scene there and I am really glad I am discovering something great from there. This artist has just two singles out, but promising great music.
There are so many great artists from Australia I am yet discovering. This is certainly one of them. So happy to see flourish the music scene of this country. I recommend you check out the other single on their Bandcamp page. I am excited to hear the full album as well.
You can follow the artist and pre-order new album on Bandcamp.
Bringing you a brand new video from LA based XUAN. The track is off her album Have Some Funn released in 2018.
Her story is very interesting:
The daughter of Vietnamese immigrants, Xuan (pronounced “Swan”) Nguyen grew up in what she describes as the “safe and uneventful” Dallas suburbs. “Everything was really good. But I knew I needed to go out and get my ego smashed and explore. I moved to Viet Nam and hosted a TV show. I traveled around Southeast Asia, Australia and moved to Ireland.”
Living in Ireland, Xuan was inspired to write songs by her then songwriter boyfriend. “He was worried about how were going to make a living. I realized that I could become a songwriter, too and we could tour together. I thought: ‘This is going to be easy!’” Of course it wasn’t, but when Xuan returned home, she continued to hone her craft undaunted. “I got up the courage to perform at open mic, and that’s where I met Salim Nourallah (producer Old 97s, Nicholas Altobelli, The Damnwells, Rhett Miller).” Nourallah invited her into his studio to put together a record.”
I am so happy to see more diversity in today’s music world and I hope there is a bright future ahead of Xuan.
FLTY BRGR GRL is a duo based in Oslo, Norway, making cute and creepy songs. The music is lo-fi and sugary, inspired by 60s vibes, lovey dovey feelings and burgers, of course. Finally some great female power on my blog. Cannot wait for them to make more great songs.
Devil Town Tapes are here with a new artist Dilary Huff from Melbourne, Australia and I can promise you will love it. The first track is lo-fi rock. I am so proud of Jack and his new label. It is my the most favorite new cassette label out there.
You can find more great music on Devil Town Tapes’ Bandcamp.
I think I have read somewhere that Iceland has the highest number of musicians per all citizens. Great musicians. I have not heard such great indie-pop as this one coming from there. So gooood. The chorus is just too perfect.
Will Orchard is playing indie lo-fi folk and is based in New England. This is the first single from my upcoming record which will be out in the following days. It is promising a great album and I cannot wait to listen to it in full.
