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

“Burns” by Malmo, Sweden songwriter Alice Boman from her debut album EPII + Skisser.
Celebrating my blog birthday with some new music from Maryland band Prinze George. The trio comprised of Kenny Grimm (production/instrumental), Naomi Almquist (vocals) and Isabelle De Leon (drums) have only been making music since 2013, are now regularly touted as one of the more up-and-coming indie acts of this past year. First “Victor”, then “Make Me”, now check out “Upswing”.
“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”.
