Single: Moscow Apartment – Halfway

Moscow Apartment create lush, folk imbued indie rock that is interwoven with the timeless and perceptive writing of singer-songwriters Brighid Fry and Pascale Padilla. The harmonious teenage duo are slated to release their sophomore EP, Better Daughter, on June 26, 2020. The EP presents an evolution of their sound from acoustic beginnings to the freedom they now enjoy playing live in a full band, which is translated in Better Daughter’s layered arrangements.
2017 marked the release of Moscow Apartment’s acclaimed self-titled debut EP, followed by winning Slaight Music’s ‘It’s Your Shot’ songwriting contest and its $100,000 grand prize artist development contract in 2018. Fry and Padilla have spent the intervening years touring and developing their skills as producers and writers, receiving guidance from the likes of Broken Social Scene’s Kevin Drew and Grammy-winner Chin Injeti.
The duo produced Better Daughter in collaboration with Vance Powell and Guillermo Subauste, who assisted in bringing a poetic and multilayered collection of songs to life. Tackling subjects which range from internalized misogyny to the complicated nature of adolescence, the songs on this EP reflect Moscow Apartment’s development as guitarists, vocalists, and writers whose music transcends limitations.

A nice story about the band making nice music.

Karina are Karin Mäkiranta & Helmi Tikkanen, an indie-folk duo from Helsinki. I have never heard of them before, but apparently they are a little bit digger in their home country.

Single: Ethan Tasch – Room

A message from the artist:

This is the first song I’ve ever released. I wrote this a year ago at a time when I felt like I was stuck in my room. It felt like a good time to release it now as everyone is actually stuck in their room right now. I released this independently and would be very grateful if it was put on a playlist. Thank you for your time.

Best,

Ethan

Dear Ethan,

I am sharing this with a pleasure. Such a nice indie folk song.

Best,

Filip

Single: Worry Club – 25hoursleep

This brand new single from bedroom pop outfit, Worry Club, is the most ambitious song in their discography to date. This track has the capacity to make any listener dance as well as burst into tears. Recorded with only one microphone and a laptop, this song features vast instrumentation in a tried and true DIY fashion. “To me, this song is about falling to a daily cycle of laziness and caffeine” front man Chase Walsh says from his bedroom studio in Chicago. “Its me talking about being so lazy and depressed, I’d rather die than go about my daily life but I’m trying to say it in a certain way so I don’t freak anybody out.”

I love sharing press writings for this artist. I love this catchy indie music. It brings me a lot of joy this nice Friday evening.

Single: tara-bridget – Something Other

In Brooklyn, New York City is where I’ve been left alone in isolation since mid-March – away from my boyfriend, my friends, family, my studio.

In solitude you see yourself clearly and you start to see yourself – something other. My boyfriend and I worked on this song together from opposite ends of the world. Even when you’re left alone, you can do something beautiful and do it yourself.

A beautiful female lo-fi bedroom pop. So goood…

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.

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.
