And, the playlists are up! Check out what rocked in January, via all your favourite platforms (Rdio, Soundcloud, Spotify and Youtube). This past month started off 2015 in a great way with some killer tunes from Favela, Satellite Stories, Hey Rosetta!, Kagu, The Barr Brothers and many more.
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.
Well, that was enough of a break for me. After putting up Indie Music Filter Volume 6, I decided to wait a couple days before adding new content and pushing the post to the bottom, then on to the next page. I’m really hoping everyone likes the mix. I’m still spinning it.
As well, I’ve been marking tons of incoming e-mails with flags indicating awesome music. Looks like I have the next two weeks mapped out for me here on the site. Maybe I’ll do a couple catch-up catch-all posts to get the ball rolling. In the meantime,
Head to the Where The Wild Things Are myspace page to hear the song ‘All Is Love’, our first taste of Karen O’s (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) composing chops for Spike Jonze‘s upcoming story book adaptation. This song features Karen with an untrained children’s choir.
And its available digitally tomorrow, soundtrack in sept, and we’ll have to wait until October to see those monsters running around. Have you seen the trailer yet? Best marriage of trailer and song ever.
