[MP3 Playlist] Indie Dojo (October 2014 Round #2)

indie-dojo-music-ninja

Making a playlist can be a tough job. You have to find the right songs, place them in the right order, and make sure they have the right flow. Some come out a little more artistic than others, but you find yourself making one every mood/event in your world. Now, if you tend to use the right side of your brain more than your left, don’t you fret. The Indie Dojo is more than happy to paint the pictures for you. Feel free to hang them on your fridge.

60+ Songs to Prepare for Treasure Island Music Festival in SF, 10/18-19 [Event Preview + Playlist]

timf2014-sfweekly-fullpgLineups for major music festivals often boast 100+ artists, which although in theory is a great concept, can end up being overwhelming and frustrating when you realize the impossibility of seeing every act on the bill. San Francisco’s Treasure Island Music Festival, a collaboration between Noise Pop and Another Planet Entertainment, provides one of the few exceptions to this conundrum electing to go with fewer artists and alternating sets at only two stages. Having attended last year, we found this to be a genius, albeit seemingly obvious, solution making the experience far more relaxed for festival-goers without sacrificing any quality in the music. Aside from the unique arrangement, the backdrop of Treasure Island overlooks both the Bay and Golden Gate bridges and has one of the more stunning sunsets the Bay Area has to offer. For anyone who will be attending this year, we also highly recommend checking out the non-stop Silent Disco stage courtesy Silent Frisco.

To help you all prepare for what should be an amazing weekend of music, we’ve put together a massive playlist including every single artist on the TIMF lineup because, with no overlapping sets, you will actually have the opportunity to see them all. Whether you’ve already got your ticket, are still on the fence or can’t make it this year, we hope this serves as a fun, introduction to a dynamic collection of musicians. One and two-day passes for Treasure Island Music Festival are still available so, if you like what you hear below, grab your tickets HERE.

Jamie N Commons – Lead Me Home (TYR Remix) [TMN Premiere]

Jamie N Commons - Lead Me Home (TYR Remix)
Jamie N Commons
Lead Me Home (TYR Remix)

Here at TMN we only give you the freshest and most unique content, and this track certainly does not disappoint. Colorado-based producer TYR just released this interestingly intriguing remix of a Jamie N Commons song titled “Lead Me Home”. which features this funky housey sound that gets you movin’ and groovin’. Being that it’s slower than most house and garage mixes, the futuristic beat work perfectly with this folky goodness. Jamie N Commons’ vocals give this tune a mysterious and ominous feel, making it rather memorable and easy to sing along. It’s one of those songs that leaves you wanting more after hearing it for the first time.

TYR has once again proven himself to be a heck of an artist to be reckoned with. With that said, we are very excited that you get to hear it first here at TMN!

[MP3 Playlist] Indie Dojo (October Round #1 2014)

indie-dojo-music-ninjaPlaying out your personal music library is a natural occurrence.  Sometimes we just can’t help it, right? We love something so much we can’t get enough of it, until that one last “repeat” where all that love seems to drain right out of our ears. And then it hits us like the plague. The boiling point where ALL of the music we have spent so many years collecting just seems lame and embarrassing, yet we cant find anything good enough to replace it. You know we’ve all been there, whether you like to admit it or not. But you know what? Good riddance! Nothing better than starting anew. It’s not like we wont go back to those songs years from now and totally fall in love all over again as we reminisce on the good times. But for now, just walk away and don’t look back. The Indie Dojos got you covered on rebuilding the library you will one day get sick of again.

Ed Prosek – Hold On Tight [TMN PREMIERE]

-TP74vE-zhm4jroX1QaL9YciYr4JAjLeThHaRWjSjb8
Ed Prosek
Hold On Tight

At the young age of 22, Californian turned Brighton UK resident Ed Prosek certainly must have some stories to tell. Luckily for us, he’s one hell of a musician, which provides an outlet for his life stories.

After releasing his debut EP, California, Prosek gained a strong following. In fact, his cover of Paul Simon’s classic hit, “Homeward Bound” was actually chosen as the soundtrack to a major TV advertisement for Cathedral City, taking this budding young artist to a national audience in a very direct way.

Coming off of his upcoming EP, “Hold On Tight” showcases the orchestral folk capabilities, giving us a booming four minute, emotional ride. Crossing in-between references of Patrick Watson, The Lumineers, and Of Monsters and Men, Prosek has found his knack with raw, powerful and engrossing vocals. Set to the backdrop of rambling guitars, steady snare hits and playful banjo work, this tune carries the heft of other radio-ready folk singles. We’re just happy we were the first ones to bring it out into the open.

Make sure to follow this young man on facebook to keep up with his shows, releases, and general goings on. We have a feeling he’s going to be one to keep and eye on.

[MP3 Playlist] Indie Dojo (September 2014 Round #4)

indie-dojo-music-ninja

We aren’t always good with words. We’ve stumbled, stuttered, and shoved our foot in our mouth at least once in our lifetime. To spare the embarrassment, how awesome would it be if we could speak in song? Using other people’s lyrical talent to drive our conversation to something worth listening to. Like sending a love playlist to your secret crush. Throwing in those “freak in the sheets” songs in attempt to trigger their subconsciousness into crushing back….or being really creeped out. How about blasting that super loud “F you” song on your drive home from a job you hate? In love or hate, we’ve all tried to communicate through song. And if you happen to be a loss of words today, you’re in luck. We’re pretty confidant you could piece together a whole day’s conversation in the hundreds of Indie Dojo’s we’ve posted.
