This one’s more my speed. I liked “Every Age” when I heard it a few months back, but now when I go back, I find the track a little too sleepy for my taste. “Leaf Off / The Cave” is the latest single from José González’s upcoming album Vestiges & Claws, out February 17, 2015. I today get the option of hearing the song the way it appears on the album (below), or from a recent performance with an eight-piece band and 27-person choir on Sweden’s popular award show, P3 Guld.
Karen O did it again: she wrote one of those songs that take you from a dark, cloudy and cold day, to a distant, warm, instagram-y summer where people still use analogue cameras. She also made a genius decision regarding the video for “Day Go By” – a short film by Wiissa aka Vanessa Hollander and Wilson Philippe – which is absolutely adorable. I’m in actual awe of it. So stop whatever it is you’re doing, put the video into full screen and enjoy the ride.
Here’s the latest video from Hey Rosetta! called “What Arrows”, from their album “Second Sight”. The video has the band performing an intimate performance in a church, in the small town of Seldom-Come-By on Fogo Island. Sticking to simplicity, the projections of crashing waves on white just seems to fit so well with those arcs, those song swells.
Last week, I found this track while making my “Trending” playlist for Aux. Refs were moving way up the Hype Machine top 50 and guessing by who was posting about the song, I could instantly tell it was going to be something just right for Indie Music Filter. Refs is the collaboration between producer Zachary Andrew (Black Light Dinner Party, High Highs) and r&b virtuoso Richard Saunders, while “Pain Goes Away” is their first soundcloud upload and one of the most blogged songs of 2015. Check it out.
As long as Austin Basham‘s producer keeps sending me soundcloud links to brand new songs, I’m going to keep putting them right here. “See You Soon” is the third single to be released off of Austin Basham‘s upcoming EP. If you’re only just getting familiar, head back and hear “All Is Well” and “Running“.
I’m playing hooky today, because I always try to take off on my birthday. Still though, I felt I needed to get something up on the old blog today. How about this track that’s been stuck in my head all weekend? “Greek Tragedy” by The Wombats, from the upcoming release of Glitterbug.
