Single: Woozles – it’s me

Conor is a sweetheart. I met him for the first time this spring, but I know him for a very long time. I will support everything he will do with music and he deserves all your attention. In his new single it’s me Conor is a little bit experimenting with autotune and chiptune synthesizer. Listen for yourself how interesting it sounds. I am so happy I could release his two albums on cassette.

Single: Molly Drag – Charlotte

I know Michael’s music for some time. We even did two releases together, one as The Raspberry Heaven and the other one as Awenda Provincial Park. Michael’s music is very dear to me and I am always pleased to see a new song (album) from him. Just press the play and dive into his melancholic melodies.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Single: Karl Jakob – Pippi is dead

Another discover from Sweden. I could only post Swedish artist and I would have neough content for my blog. I am so blown away by this fact. Past weeks I am not the biggest fan of simple melodies, but this melancholic simple track gets me. The simplicity makes it beautiful.

Single: Beach Bums – Ash

Sometimes simple things get me. The melody of the Ash is pretty simple, but it is getting me. I have re-listend to this short track couple of times.

The vocals in time by Frogi are very powerfull. Stripped down instruments are giving a way to a beautiful vocal melody, which is dominanting whole track. You can feel so many emotions from this track and it touches your heart directly. Just listen to it.

Single: Wade Steely – After You

Wade Steely is 20 year old artist from NY.

Some colors of voice are more fitting me than others. I don’t know why it is like that. Wade’s vocals are working for me very well. Love his mellow, pleasant voice that is getting under my (music) skin. The song has a very simple melody, but with so much power. I wish I was such a talented musician at this age as Wade is.

Bonus: Female vocals later in song are so beautiful.

Single: Albert Kass – Same Lie

Do you know that feeling when you listen to a song for the first time and you like “nah” I am not into it, but something makes you listen again and again and again. Somehow you are listening it for the fifth time and the first feeling is completely away. This happened to me with Same Lie by Albert Kass. I could not stop re-listening to it until I was totally hooked by the melody and lyrics. I am so into this verse:

“Who knows, we might be living the same lie, can you believe, this shit’s been normalized”

There is always something special about discovering bands that are releasing their first music. Feeling of pure, fresh music. Good music. This single is from the upcoming album out later this month and it is promising already a great record. I cannot wait to hear it in full.

I recommend you pour a nice cold drink (my favorite is Negroni) and just enjoy this summerish song.

Single: Hollie Col – Unholy

Do you know that feeling when you listen to music and you cannot stay cold and you need to move? That’s exactly how I felt when I listened to Unholy by Hollie Col. I felt (music) joy. I feel like we can have fun and dance a little. I always liked female vocals and Hollie’s ones are really catchy.

I have read that she is supposed to tour in Europe soon, maybe I can see her play a live set in Central Europe too.

I feel a lot of nostalgia in this song like from an old movie, some Italian movie, a summer movie. Another great band from Scandinavia. I think it is worth to try and dig through their pretty rich discography.
