Single: Ugly Ghost – Hoverboards & Teleportation

Ugly Ghost captures so much energy in his tracks. Aubrey Plaze has been my favorite track on our May Spotify playlist and I am happy there is another sweet lo-fi indie rock track out there. Little bit different, little bit more experimental, but still very “Ugly Ghost-ish.” Excited to hear more from him in future.

Single: SLEEP RADIO – several days later by

I find it so hard to discover music from Europe I really enjoy, but past weeks there is more and more popping up just to my ears. It feels good. And yes, Britain (UK) is still part of Europe.

Slow, melow lo-fi track from SLEEP RADIO coming out of Bristol is developing more and more after re-listening. If you are fan of Alex G, Hovvdy or Tyler Burkhart or any other lo-fi king, this will get you. Close all social networks, turn the volume up and just enjoy.

Single: Kaanvas – Catch 22

Are you fan of 90s rock? Weezer? You will love this track. I have been always huge fan of this era in music and I am very glad Kaanvas is bringing it back. Love the pace of the song, how the verses change, how good the guitars and vocals are. Also a small big plus to name of song, I love book Catch 22.

The lyrics are great too:

You used to come over : Lay your head in my lap
That was October : I fell in your trap
Now its a daydream : I can’t explain
The moment that left me : This sting in my brain
You make me a fool now you make me a fool
I wanna go back now wish i was with you
Im stuck in the past now playin it cool
So it doesn’t hurt now this catch 22
I hope you forgive me : For causing you pain
Time is so empty : I made a mistake
Not loving you sooner : You bend and you break
But now im a loser : And you can relate

Just press the play and enjoy it too.

Single: Blu:m – Shakes Up

This track will make your hibs to move. Love the upbeat melody, love the “Florence And The Machine” style vocal parts. New, fresh band coming out of London scene. Exciting! There is a just short EP out but it is very promising and worth checking out.

Single: Wes Chiller – Mo Nothin

Do you remember classic rock from 70s, 80s? Remember Police? I remember it very well as my father listened to it over and over when I was younger. He still plays it on vinyl from time to time. I feel the vibe of this in Wes Chiller’s track Mo Nothin and it brings me a lot of memories. A good ones. Nostalgia. Old classic rock.

Single: personhollywise. – arpeggio.

I usually write about new music released in past weeks but this one is little bit older. Discovering of older music can bring the same enjoyment as discover of new music. Who said that blog cannot write about things that were released months ago? We can write about anything we want.

The opening of the track is just killin’ it. Love the pace, love the beats and voice too. A great track.

Single: the deepest sleep – III

James aka the deepest sleep is my friend, we met at Z Tapes Fest in Summer 2018. He has been fan of my label for many years and luckily I was able to see him play live at our Fest. His new project is little bit different from drmgrl music, but I still find it interesting. I do not listen to ambient music on daily music, but when I do I try to take a care when listening to it. Ambient music is always atmosphere. Can you feel it?

Single: Simen Mitlid – Trying

How many Norwegian artist do you know? Many? Few? None? You should start digging deeper into this country’s music scene because you can find gems. Simen Mitlid’s music is one of it. You would never thought this was coming from Norway. I love how fresh and well produced this song sounds.

“Hailing from the lush woods of Os, Norway, singer-songwriter Simen Mitlid crafts lush, Nordic indie-folk” – note from his bio. I just wish I could join him in these Nordic woods.

Single: Ian Terry – Remember

Aritst described this song as:

a self-recorded, thoughtful, wistful song with strong lyrics and musicality

And he was so right. I love the folkish guitar in this one. I love how the sound is building up and vocals just go perfectly with it. I will listen to this over and over and just enjoy the beauty of music.

Single: Callum Pitt – Here If You Need

Piano is my favorite instruments. When I was little I tried to teach myself to play, was not successful at all. Therefore I admire songs where piano is used. Callum Pitt’s “Here If You Need” is a perfect example how nicely it can be done. I enjoy the cheerful vibe of the song, love how all instruments are well laid out. I would love to see this track played live. Must be a great experience. Excited to hear more from this promising British artist.

Single: mxmtoon – prom dress

Here is pretty interesting description from PR department of artist:

Now May has arrived and so has the timely single, “prom dress,” where mxmtoon expounds upon the adolescent feelings associated with the high expectations of prom-heightened emotions, daydreams of what could be, and the sinking reality that most of us actually experience. mxmtoon wraps her sentiments in this hushed pop treasure as she sings, “I guess I thought that prom was gonna be fun, but now I’m sitting on the floor and all I want to do is run…” Relatable, she is.

It describes everything that you can find in this little sweet track. I never ever been to any real prom, but I can feel it in this track. I can be teenager once again.

Single: Coral Collapse – Never Go

DIIV, Wild Nothing, Beach Fossils. I grew up (musically) listening to them. I love how perfectly they represent summer, surfy vibes. Coral Collapse is another great band contributing to these summerish vibes. It makes me cheerful, it makes me dance, it makes me want to laugh. This is what music should be about too. Have fun. Are you having fun with music?

“Never Go” is from newest album Don’t Wait to See Me Say Goodbye available at coralcollapse.bandcamp.com/album/dont-wait-to-see-me-say-goodbye

Single: Amparo – Memory Tree

I always prefer songs with vocals, but “Memory Tree” is a great one. Today is a great day for some ambient, soothing track as it is rainy and cold outside, it’s Friday and the work week has been very exhausting. Listen to this track makes my mind and soul to rest and just enjoy pure beauty of music. Close your eyes, rise the volume up and just fly away.

Raised in the deserts of southern Arizona, Amparo is the solo project of Lela Amparo. Crafting ambient induced day dreams, Amparo creates guitar loops and minimalistic programming to present instrumental music with a touch of melancholy and a longing for somewhere else. – from website

Single: Sean Kennedy – Young & Depressed

Have you heard of Sean Kennedy? Not? Really? … Me neither. One track on Soundcloud. No social media. Nothing. But that music! I felt in love with it. I am young too (just 28) and felt many times depressed. I could listen to this track over and over. I love the vocals & lyrics, I love the piano in the back of track and verses. Soft and sweet. Cheerful. Try it with me.

Single: Superocean – Saturday World

It’s Saturday. A lazy one. And I just want to sing:

Saturday world, oh oh, Saturday world, oh oh
Saturday world, oh oh, Saturday world
Saturday world, oh oh, Saturday world, oh oh
Saturday world, oh oh, Saturday world

No more words. Just sing a long.

Single: Stevie Zita – Cocoa Ono

The third addition to your summer lazy playlists. I know, I know it’s only May but why we should not feel already great? I am very excited about this one because apparently this artist is known by very tiny amount of people. But definitely it should be listened by much more. The best fact about all this is location where the artist is from – Toronto, Canada. I just love Canadian music. Do you remember Foxes in Fiction, Fog Lake, Molly Drag? All from Canada. I just want to discover more and more music from this beautiful country.

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.

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.

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.
