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.

There’s a small abandoned cabin far into the woods of southern Sweden. It seems like nobody been living there for a very long time. It’s still furnished but others have been there, tumbling around, looking for valuables. They’ve missed out. What’s left is the memories

of what i think is an older lady, a well-traveled lady. There’s a lot of old worn out suitcases in the attic and there’s a whole lot of handmade amateur art hanging about in the cabin, from all over the world. In a shelf there’s lots of 8mm film rolls. All left for itself.

I left the cabin that time and returned a year later. More people had been there and more things were missing. So i decided to borrow some rolls of film home with me. I recorded some of the films named “U.S.A.” and watched them. Maybe for the first time in over
3 decades.

Then I took the liberty to put together a video for “Burns” by using an unknown old lady’s memories.

“Love Ain’t Enough” by The Barr Brothers from the album Sleeping Operator.  Animated and directed by Dustin Grella, this video was filmed through one continuous shot of 50 cardboard cut-outs and 15 paintings, totalling 2100 frames.  Speaking about the video, Grella shared: “After listening to ‘Love Ain’t Enough’ just a few times I really had this sense that it was a journey and I was traveling into a city or countryside that was unfamiliar, but in a peaceful, confident way, not a fearful way. The more I listened to it the more it brought about the idea of the hero’s journey and about how we are all passing through life and at so many points we find ourselves in unfamiliar terrain, only retrospectively to see them as moments of growth”.
