Indie Christmas Playlist 2014

tmn-christmas

It’s that time of the year again, ninjas. Snow is covering the ground (well, not here in Denver, surprisingly), the lights are up, we’re all scrambling to figure out what to buy our friends and family, and the same damn music is being played at every store, restaurant, and public space.

While we have to give credit to the timeless classics from the likes of Andy Williams, Elvis Presley, and Perry Como, it’s always nice to change things up with some more modern takes on these timeless songs.

This time around, we’ve crafted a playlist of some brand new holiday songs, and a few of our favorites from the past few years. If you can manage to wrangle control of the family stereo at dinner this year, throw this playlist on. You might even play a new favorite for you Mom and Dad.

Happy holidays from all of us at The Music Ninja. We hope you enjoy good food, good company, and good tunes.

[MP3 Playlist] Indie Dojo (December 2014 Round #3)

indie-dojo-music-ninja

We are seriously running out of gift buying time. The clock is tick, tick, ticking it’s way out of hands. If you find yourself out of money, out of time, out of patience or a combination of all three, you’ve come to the right place. The Indie Dojo’s got the remedies. Broke? No worries, cause we’re free. Running out of time? Not a problem, we’ve already put it together for you. Lacking patience? It’s ok. We hear music has a sort of soothing quality to it. Magical, right? So take a deep breath and forget about all that other crap, ’cause as always, the ninjas’ got you.

indie-dojo-music-ninjaRunning away from Christmas jingles? We feel ya. They started bombarding us with that crap the day after Halloween. TOO SOON. Just too soon. It’s cool though. You can ninja your way right out of the tinsel and jingle bells with a good ol’ Indie Dojo. Happy Indiedays!

JP Cooper – When the Darkness Comes [TMN PREMIERE]

JP
JP Cooper
When the Darkness Comes

It’s always difficult to pull ourselves out of bed come Monday morning, especially if we just came off an epic weekend. Well, we found ourselves in that situation this morning, but it wasn’t as difficult to jump up and get on our computers. You can probably guess why, but if not, we’ll fill you in. It’s because of “When the Darkness Comes.”

Following up on the successful release of “Satellite,” neo-soul singer/songwriter JP Cooper once again displays his musical dexterity, providing listeners with a delightful taste of his sparkling talent. Set to uplifting tempo of soaring piano chords, short bursts of brass, interspersed guitar strums, and haunting gospel-style hums, “When the Darkness Comes” surges with truly radiant songwriting ingenuity.

The impassioned lyrics remind of us of other timeless pieces, glowing with the undeniable energy of Cooper’s embracing tone, range, and cadence. In a slight state of awe, we’re left saying, “2015 should be one hell of a year for this Manchester-based talent.”

And it will. “When the Darkness Comes” drops in January on an EP that boasts the same name, and we’re pretty damn sure it’s going to make some waves. Make sure to pre-order your copy by clicking here.

It’s about that time of year where everything seems to fly by. It’s like we blink and the end of the year is here. There is almost no stopping our tailspin into the point of no return. Unless, you take the time to slow yourself down. Step out of the dust and into your Indie Dojo Zone. It won’t stop the clock per say, but it might give you a change to ninja yourself into minute of clarity.
