The 1975 have taken the music scene by storm, on both sides of the pond. This Manchester four piece originally released “The City” as a demo recorded from their bedroom. Since picking up steam in the music industry, they’ve since re-recorded this radio single version of the track that will eventually appear on the Mike Crossey produced album, which is due out later this year.
Driving drums and bass, delicate guitar riffs, and of course the haunting vocals of lead singer Matthew Healy comprise this highly addicting pop track that begs to be sung along with.
Heart Heart Head
Back in August we were lucky enough to catch Meg Myers’ perform at her residency at the Bootleg in Silver Lake. The show was short, given Meg’s relatively small catalog, but there was one song we weren’t familiar with. That track was “Heart Heart Head”.
Today Meg finally released this gem today, and we couldn’t be happier. While we don’t recall the vocals being as intense towards the end during her live performance, we were happy to have these emotionally charged lyrics grace our eardrums once again. “Heart Heart Head” is powerful, intense, and displays Meg’s talent in both vocal range and songwriting abilities. Her and producer Dr. Rosen Rosen have once again provided us with something remarkable.
California Analog Dream (Factory Floor remix)
Factory Floor grab ahold of Vondelpark‘s silky indie electronica track “California Analog Dream” (off their newly released album Seabed), and mold it into a trippy, jarring remix, boosting the dance-floor energy, while also slipping in oozy, melt-your-face-off beats. It’s as smooth, as it is thrilling. You’ll want to lace up your shoes for this one, ninjas.
Plagued by a power outage as the result of a random and crazy Los Angeles windstorm, (Palm Tree branches falling to their death at an incredible rate are no joke) the Indie Dojo is brought to you from a local coffee shop who is kind enough to lend a free WiFi connection with purchase. Point being, wind, sleet, hail, snow, tornadoes, earthquakes and/or more, the Indie Dojos got you. Resilient MFer’s we are.

SHEPHERD AND THE SHEEP
The Mighty Fall (feat. Big Sean)
Fall Out Boy is really looking to return with a bang in 2013. We’ve already seen one rap collaboration with the 2 Chainz remix to their hit single, “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark” (we really need an acronym for that). For their latest act, The Chicago boys go for a Midwest hookup, recruiting Detroit’s Big Sean for a neat little verse. I honestly can’t get over the intro, where Sean interpolates his typical ad-libs with the band’s name, “Fall Out Boiii.” It seems like a perfect match to me.
In anticipation of the release of Save Rock and Roll on April 15, the band is providing a free advance stream of the album on their SoundCloud page. We’ve included some of our favorites below, but make sure to check out the full project before it drops next week.
