St. Patrick (PVRIS Cover)
I wasn’t familiar with the group PRVIS before I heard Crywolf‘s cover of their single, “St. Patrick.” While I recommend checking out the original, Crywolf’s version stands on it’s own as a great listen. Using strong vocals, a variety of electronic subtleties and some outstanding house elements, Crywolf builds it up to a deep rhythmic breakdown that is quite satisfying. Thank you Crywolf not only for a great track but also for introducing some of us to a worthy new artist. Stream it here and enjoy.
In the midst of all the chaos, music sometimes provides a little relief, even if only temporary. Sometimes it’s necessary to kick back, relax and lose yourself in some indie goodness for a while. Luckily, you’ve come to the right place. Hit play on the Indie Dojo and let your mind travel to a more peaceful place, wherever that may be.
Smoky Mountain Angel (Of Doom)’
Crazy day already? We’ve got a pretty chillax Indie Dojo for you, all queued up and ready to go. Go ahead…Take a listen. It’ll probably be good for you.
Live in the moment. Don’t dwell on the past. Everyday statements we should probably live by. Unless you are a Ninja and can conquer both in a positive light. If you just happened to land on this page out of nowhere, now’s your chance to live in the moment. Take a few minutes out of your hectic day and press play. OR go ahead and dwell on the past. There is an option to listen to old Indie Dojos from the “Playlist” tab right above this post. Either way, we won’t judge how you choose to spend your moments, past or present, as long as you enjoy them.
As a sweeping generalization, 2015 will go down as a year dominated by collectives. Future Classic, Hegemon, Moving Castle, Soulection, HW&W, Wedidit, Monstercat, and French Express pooled their talents together to commandeer the music scene this year. The technical aspects commonly associated with “Future” crept into the DNA of producers, becoming a topical theme across genres from the most obscure to the most mainstream.
In particular, and as one of the most recent additions to the TMN staff, it has been quite a journey both as a contributor and music fan since early April. Without the collaboration of the entire staff – the guidance of editors and advice of my fellow writers – year one as a ninja would not have been possible. Along the way I’ve covered tours, shot music festivals, and met some of my favorite artists, who have graciously exposed me to their own intricate webs of sound. That being said, below is my best effort to reduce thousands of great tracks released this calendar year down to a manageable number. Enjoy the tracks below, in order of release date, and see you all next year!
