Video: Ashley Koett – You Forgot To Move

I am sometimes a little bit late for some music. One case is Ashley Koett’s song, but it is never too late to share.

The Texas-born Coloradan is something of a quadruple threat: she sings, plays guitar, produces, and co-directed her first video. She codes, too. All of those talents bring their own form of creative expression, a unique catharsis. “If you’re laughing about something sad, That instantly makes it not as shitty.”

I am so into this quirky indie pop.

Video: Gaspard Eden – Pancakes

A glorious nostalgia inducing clay animation video for your favourite childhood tv, “Pancakes” is directed by tattoo artist Phil Berge, who found himself dabbling with clay animation during COVID 19. The result is a colourful 90’s revival, reminiscent of shows like Wallace and Gromit, Pingu and Soupe Opera. “Pancakes” is taken from Gaspard Eden’s forthcoming album Soft Power.

Another single with an amazing video we are sharing from this talented Canadian indie artist.

Video: HighSchool – Frosting

New Melbourne band, HighSchool, have surfaced after a year of writing and recording. Now they’re about to drop three music videos that present their distinctive outlook on how post-punk, grit and youthful sophistication can coexist. Together they’re the architects behind this earwormy, low-fi sound, all powered by progressive harmonies, driving choruses and emotive instrumentals.

Another fresh discovery, reminding me a little bit of early Beach Fossils’ music. My kind of jam and the video fits the music just perfectly.

Video: Kevin Kaho Tsui – Home Alone

The original idea came from one of my favourite movies ‘Home Alone’, hence the song samples the dialogues between ‘Pigeon Lady’ vs ‘Kevin’ about loneliness; we’ve all been staying ‘home alone’ during these past few months and it’s easy to feel lonely and lost, more so than any other times before. This is a song expressing how I feel during my lonely hours and I hope others will find my music relatable and perhaps a little less sad knowing that they’re not the only ones feeling this strange sensation.

A beautiful stripped-down lo-fi hip hop track. I love the “Home Alone” reference.

Video: Gaspard Eden – Soft Power

Gaspard Eden is a singer/song-writer hailing from Quebec City.

Soft Power by Gaspard Eden is a hidden message. It’s a juggling dialogue between impulses and guilty pleasures. In this song, Eden manages to combine a stripped honesty with symbolist figures of speech. He emphasizes our inability to embody some of our deepest feelings. His dreamy bass lines, motoric chords progressions and ethereal vocal melodies serve as a canvas where our repressed fantasies are evoked.

Another single we are sharing from Canadian indie artist.

Video: Worry Club – In My Ear

Bedroom Pop outfit, Worry Club, will release a new single titled “In My Ear” on Feb 28. Lead artist, Chase Walsh wrote and recorded this track in his small college apartment. The song brings together dreamy guitar riffs, punchy drums, and self-deprecating lyrical content to make a unique indie-punk sound. Recorded with just a laptop, interface, several instruments, and only three microphones the band produced a professional quality track in tried and true DIY fashion.

“I really tried to portray how big of a piece of shit I feel like when someone confesses their feeling towards me.” Walsh said, “The song is really about how compliments can, at times, be more toxic than insults or criticism.”

I have a hunch this artist will be bigger soon…

Video Premiere: Xuan – Nobody Knows

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.
