[Indie] RBTS WIN – Death Magic

RBTS WIN
Death Magic

Up-and-comer duo RBTS WIN tease us with upcoming summer vibes in “Death Magic,” a sneak preview into their album Palm Sunday. Semblant to Painted Palms and the laid-back Vacationer sound (give the song “Trip” a go), this track sets a sultry pace in an easy 20 seconds. It’s got that balanced combo of psychedelia and pop that really exhales that sunny vibrancy.

Soak it all up. The easy cadence will transport you instantly to a beachside boardwalk, midsummer or to a sunlit, sun-basking easy mountain hike. The hazy, warm nostalgia meanders gently and brings you some of their native warmth from Miami Beach all the way up to their current outpost in Asheville, NC.

As the weather’s finally waking everyone up from hibernation, let this track welcome all things warm and laid-back to come. We’re stoked to let this one roll on repeat and wait as patiently as possible for the full album to ease its way out.

[Indie] Still Parade – Fields

Still Parade
Fields

Berlin-based songwriter and producer Niklas Kramer, known as Still Parade, has had a slow start with the release of his four-track EP “Fields.” Initially completed in 2013, tracks from the EP have been kept under the radar…until now. The premier of lead track Fields has left us in love with Still Parade.

There can honestly never be enough relaxing tracks like Fields in the world. This has such a feel-good melody that you can just get lost in. Fields doesn’t just have your typical indie-folk sound, though; there are bursts of electronic beats that are placed between the chilling instrumentals that make this track so amazing. These etherial electro-indie sounds are matched by the soft vocals of Niklas Kramer, creating a calm and dreamy tune that anyone with a love for indie could listen to for hours. Yes, hours.

The only negative about “Fields” is that you’re gonna have to wait until May 6th to stream and download the entire EP. But for now, ninjas, enjoy this track and get excited for what’s to come from Still Parade.

[Indie/Pop/Folk] Zella Day – 1965

1965
Zella Day
1965

Arizona native artist Zella Day released ‘1965’ yesterday, the B-side of her forthcoming debut 7” to be released April 7th.

It is safe to say, this indie pop artist with a twist of influences from her Western life is quickly becoming one of my favorite new artists. Her almost electronic melodies mixed with her intense and captivating vocals is a collaboration like none other. Then put in the story her lyrics tell in a matter-of-fact manner and magic happens. Her ‘1965’ is a beautiful tale of love and of a world that two people once had with one another, as Day puts it, “…cut like diamonds we were made to last”. And last Day will, she has taken inspiration from artists such as Elvis Presley and Bob Dylan to find a voice and sound all of her own, assembled with her Western upbringing, Day will entice all who listen.

After a night of drinking green beer and Irish car bombs, loud noises and playlists are probably not the most appealing thing. But thanks to the internets, the Indie Dojo will still be here tomorrow, and the next day, and the next.

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

indie-dojo-music-ninjaSo we lost an hour of sleep and YUP, it’s definitely gonna suck for the first couple days. But when you think about what the future of daylight savings time holds, it totally redeems itself. Long summer nights, beach days, close to zero clothing and the good ol’ soundtracks that will forever bring you back to the smell of suntan lotion and BBQs. Sounds pretty glorious, doesn’t it? We think so. Which is why we are more than more than happy to get you started on soundtrack part. Ya know, to get your mind off the lack of sleep and into the positive sunshiny, groove of spring. Enjoy….
