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!
Playing 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.

Nothings As It Seems
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.
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.

Follow You Home
Somewhere in between Andrew Belle, Devendra Banhart, and Chris Martin you’ll find Yellowknife-born folk singer/songwriter Matt Millz. While Millz may be a little more grainy at times in comparison to Belle, a little less whimsical than Banhart, and a little less refined than Martin, he’s a voice that’s equally as encapsulating, ensuring that you get lost in only a moment’s time.
This friendly neighbor to the north is a well-versed multi-instrumentalist, which is not hard to pick up during a quick three and a half minute listen through his debut single, “Follow You Home.” With cascading vocal ranges carefully caressing the calculated fingerpicking of his acoustic guitar, this tune boasts nothing more than just that and subtle atmospheric elements which help give the song its earthy soundscape and enchanting progression.
It’s raw, emotional, and inspirational, leading the listener down a heart-tugging journey led by Millz’s refined, yet sometimes rugged vocals. Kudos to both Millz and Nygel Asselin, whom co-wrote and produced this endearing folk gem.
Goodbye, Summer. Hello, everyone complaining about the cold ass weather. You have to admit though, there’s nothing quite like kicking back and cuddling up to a playlist full of heartwarming indie music. Sometimes, music sooths even the coldest of souls.
Undress Your Soul
It could quite possibly be our Rye-induced state that’s making us drawn to music of the acoustical nature. There’s something about those simplistic guitar chords coupled with a singular vocalist and harmonica player that send us into a booze-fueled dizzy, and to be honest, we’re overwhelmingly grateful for that fact.
You see, there’s something to be said about the simplicity in life. Sitting at home, drinking a wonderful Rye whiskey, and listening to some calming folk music is nothing short of amazing at this age. Looking at what other people are up to on a night like tonight, we’ll gladly opt for some large ice cubes and unfiltered music. Call us old fashioned, but we like some of the more basic indulgences, and we salute The Western Settlers for providing one song in our brown-bottle soundtrack.
Coming out just hours ago, “A Monster” was released as an acoustic draft. It’s pure, raw, and engaging, providing us with a reason to stop and hit repeat over and over again.
