elephantstone Dont You Know by Elephant Stone

Who : Elephant Stone from Montreal.

What : A song from the debut of Elephant Stone (The Seven Seas ), a five-piece led by multi-instrumentalist, ex-High Dial and probably one of the nicest people I’ve ever met in the music industry, Rishi Dhir. Blending an obsession with perfect pop songs and the trippiest raga, The Seven Seas emerges from Rishi’s back-catalogue of songs written over the years. While not recording his own, we’ve heard Rishi playing sitar on records by The Black Angels and UK’s The Earlies . The Seven Seas features friends from The High Dials, The Besnard Lakes and The Dears , produced by Jace Lasek .

Song : Don’t You Know . Trip to the sitar breakdown near the end.

A couple weeks back when I went to check out Efterklang in Toronto, I had a good chat with Yvonne, owner of the El Mocambo. I had arrived late and missed the show opener, a guy named Peter Broderick from Portland. It was apparently a captivating performance from this multi-instrumentalist, but I did get a chance to see him perform later that evening. He did double-duty on that tour, joining Denmark’s Efterklang on stage as a vocalist, violinist, guitarist and whatever else he could get his hands on.

Growing up playing classical violin, Peter seemed to be able to play any instrument he could get his hands on. Lending his sound to local recording studios in Portland, Peter began to get great opportunities to play with a slew of artists and bands (M. Ward, Horse Feathers, Zooey Deschanel). In 2007, Peter was asked by some of his musical heroes (Efterklang) to drop his life in Portland and move to Copenhagen. His time in Europe not only solidified him as a regular in the band, Peter released a mini album of solo piano music (“Docile” on Kning Disk) and a full length album of piano and string compositions (“Float” on Type Recordings). Fast forward to 2008 with his solo album “Home“, a remarkable debut (on Bella Union) which reveals him to be a ‘songwriter and musician of astonishing maturity and depth‘.

I’d recommend for staring at the rain, lying in bed daydreaming. Check out Below It.

Who : Jenny Owen Youngs from New Jersey (not Brooklyn).

What : A poppy one to get your week going. Maybe yours, but definitely my introduction to Brooklyn’s Jenny Owen Youngs . She’s got an EP out now, a full-length (Transmitter Failure) out May 26th. In support of this, she’s on the road with Jukebox The Ghost , who she covered with the song below.

Song : Good Day (Jukebox The Ghost cover) . Does her voice have a hint of Courtney Love at all? Maybe its just me….

This band has had one song featured in a fun-themed’ ipod touch commercial that was specifically selected for the ad by Steven Jobs, another placed in a Gossip Girl episode during a dramatic teen moment, and sports a blonde and Danishly exuberant front-woman who sparks comparisons to the look and music of the Ting Tings. My brother and I were listening to the super catchy Around the Bend (from the Musicfile) in the car and both dug the soul driven horns and raw and sultry vocals. I was encouraged to write a post about them. I understand now. If any blowback occurs to Indiemusicfilter.com that this band was spoon fed to it by a strategically crafted viral-esque marketing campaign I will take the hit for writing about them as the site’s nube contributor. I’m not happy about it, but I will play for the team. You can find their EP on iTunes at the moment. Expect a full length album out in May. Check out their myspace page for more songs and details on upcoming shows. As well, head over to imf.tv for the video.

MVSC Acronyms Help Us Remember Relationships Between Things  Meet MVSC

I’d like to introduce to you a band/DJ project named MVSC. Their name is an acronym that describes their origin, when the rock band (M)ontevideo joined forces (VS) with DJ/producer (C)ompuphonic. I would like to thank Compuphonic for making clear on his MySpace page what exactly the band name meant, as I had spent more time than I should have the other night trying to figure out if there was some new instant messaging jargon that I needed to get up on. Listening to the album the music is dancefloor friendly but shows ample evidence of good song writing with some clever lyricism and key changes, solid guitar work and compelling lead vocals. At the moment the band has released a track named Sunderland on Beatport (only available in Europe at the moment) and will be dropping a full length album in at the end of the summer on Belgium’s Playout Records. I am still waiting to hear back from their label about when MVSC‘s music will be distributed in North America and if any live dates are planned. I’ll keep you posted, but for now please enjoy the cheeky Your Best Ever Lay and the epic Sunshine while you wait.
