Get Lucky (Daft Punk Cover)
This weekend, folk trio Daughter take on “Get Lucky”, the ubiquitous new comeback single by Daft Punk (whose official artwork is above). It’s exactly what you might expect, in the most unexpected way, and a definite “must listen”. Check it out.
Out Of The Shadows
I can picture it now: soft sand under my body, waves lapping against the California coastline, and the incessant ramblings of a Venice hustler echoing in the background. Yeah, it’s almost summertime. You know what we love most about this season around these parts? Gorgeous coastal folk rock. There’s nothing quite like lying back in the sand with the sun beating on your face, listening to some infectious sounds.
Santa Monica based Opus Orange is here to provide just that. The meticulous and elegant guitar work provides the perfect soundscape for the lead singer’s soft folky vocals. Sit down, unwind, and take a listen for yourself. This sweet jam is a re-release peek at their soundtrack for The Muir Project’s “Mile… Mile And A Half”. Full soundtrack to be released on May 14, 2013.
As music lovers, we are constantly on the search, whether consciously or subconsciously, for a musical soul-mate. One who will enjoy the same genre as we do or is completely open to listening to something new. Which makes us feel really cool ’cause that means we get to introduce someone to something they have never heard before. And if the relationship, friend or lover, decides to fizzle, we have forever engraved our presence into their brain. That song = our face.
In our minds, to be with someone who despises the music library we have spent years piecing together would only be relationship murder. This can definitely make the search for the one a little more complicated then we would like to believe. So, if you happen to be so lucky to have found the ying to your musical yang, cheers to you. If you are still kicking dirt down the long and windy road of failed love connections, don’t worry, we won’t judge. In fact, think of the Indie Dojo as your booty call. We will always be here when you need us. And when things get serious with someone else, we won’t be jells. Just promise not to fall into the black hole of a relationship and come say hi every once in while. In return, we promise to not make it awkward…

The East Collective
With a fair bit of industry hype – The East Collective are one of East London’s best kept secret. The 4 peice draw on the dynamics of a the beatbox, add in some tight vocals, catchy guitar licks and scattered piano to create a really unique sounding folk/funk feel. We featured these guys back in 2012 and now they’re back from the studio with their new track ‘Whomp!’. Yes – it’s catchy and yes.. i’ve been playing this way to many times. What do you think?

Wild Country (Teen Daze Remix)
In case you missed it, we reviewed Wake Owl‘s recent indie EP, Wild Country (hint: we think it’s pretty beautiful). This week, the folksy acoustics of the title track are stripped away and replaced by the cascading, psychedelic electronic ambiance from Canadian producer Teen Daze. The remix is (excuse the pun) wildly different than the original — everything from the mood to its textures have been altered — but somehow still just as powerful and captivating. Listen in above.
Plagued by a power outage as the result of a random and crazy Los Angeles windstorm, (Palm Tree branches falling to their death at an incredible rate are no joke) the Indie Dojo is brought to you from a local coffee shop who is kind enough to lend a free WiFi connection with purchase. Point being, wind, sleet, hail, snow, tornadoes, earthquakes and/or more, the Indie Dojos got you. Resilient MFer’s we are.
