Railway (Daniele Di Martino Edit)
There has been a trend of stunning deep house music coming from Germany of late, and Daniele Di Martino has added to that list a hauntingly beautiful edit of an indie cult hit from Boy. It’s not often that gorgeous indie originals can retain their same essence after undergoing the remix treatment, but there is a certain element to the production behind this that still makes it all seem impeccably pure. True to this style of music, the vocals have taken on a deeper flavour, and together with the melancholic strings layered throughout there is somehow a feeling of real solace. This in combination with the percussion-induced head bopping makes this track a treasure just waiting to be discovered. You’re in luck though because we’re happy to share it.
We can’t predict the future, it’s unhealthy to dwell on the past, and we should never overlook the present. Sometimes we need to just sit and chill awhile. Drown out the clutter and engage ourselves in the moment. And that is is why we are glad you’re here. Take a second to focus on something other than everything else. We’ve got a sweet little playlist to help you color your silence.
Whats That?(Gimme That)
Workin Woman Blues
Every once in a while we experience a mini life freakout. “What the hell am I doing?” “Where the hell am I going?” “What the hell is happening next? Unless you are totally secure in your world, which is pretty awesome if you are and many kudos to you my friend, we’ve all had these questions swirling around in our brain at one point or another. The trick is to drown it out. We can only live in the present, so whats the point of stressing out about the past or future? Make the most of the moment. Appreciate your surroundings, be grateful for where you stand, and enjoy a free indie dojo. It should only take a moment or two..
White Line Fever
Shine Like Me
Life can be scary, unpredictable, and freakin’ overwhelming. But the indie dojo’s got you. Sit back, relax, and let the magical powers of the playlist heal your soul.

You Are Not A Rarity
If You Want To Sing Out Sing Out
If there’s one thing this blogger loves, it’s a great cover. If there’s one thing this blogger loves even more, it’s a folk cover. In a collaborative effort between Santa Monica folk rockers Opus Orange and Ojai based Emy Reynolds, we’re offered up a lovely cover of Cat Steven’s “If You Want To Sing Out, Sing Out.”
The original sing along nature of the song is maintained in this campfire appropriate interpretation. Sit back and enjoy the ride.
This is Eli Stone
In a joyous culmination of vocal harmonies, guitar rhythms, understated drumming and playful lead riffs, Eli Stone has us with our elbows on the table, quietly expecting to hear more. Unfortunately, there’s just this one track. Yes, “Evergreen,” is more than enough to capture any indie rock lover’s ear, but they’ll have to wait with bated breath to hear more.
We’d normally love to tell you more about an artist, providing information like where they’re from, when their album is due out or what inspired their tune, but we have none of that. All we have is head swaying indie rock, and that will have to keep you at bay until we uncover more about this surf rock inspired folk rock group.
