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

indie-dojo-music-ninja

Change isn’t something we welcome with open arms most of the time, but it’s not always such a bad thing. Who cares if you don’t like indie, folk, cover songs, or indie folk cover songs for that matter. Let’s embrace a little change of genre in your life today. Look at it this way, the Indie Dojo is like a box of non-edible indie songs, you never know what you’re gonna get or what you’re gonna like.

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

indie-dojo-music-ninja The future is unpredictable. Pretty much anything can happen at any time of the day. And as much as we try to predict the weather, sometimes an unexpected wind storm is thrown our way. Except for the Indie Dojo. It is pretty safe to say you can predict a new list of songs, every week, right here, way into the future. What the songs may be might be the wind storm, but at least you sorta kinda know what you getting yourself into.

[Dreamfolk] Still Parade – Reunion

Still Parade
Reunion

If you’re having a bad day, press play and close your eyes. Let the soft, feathery vocals of Still Parade take you away to a better place.

Coming off the Fields EP (out on Serve & Volley Records) , “Reunion” offers us another listen to vocals that completely overtake what you’re doing, demanding that you stop, listen and enjoy. As we saw with “Actors,” they have a knack for creating slow-building, progressive folk, that eventually crecendos into a melodic climax. This time around, we hear the inclusion of some powerful drumming and trumpet work, which creates a charging summertime folk tune that’s worthy of whatever adventures lie ahead.

Lyrically, this tells a story that any person can relate to. Check out what they had to say about the inspirations behind “Reunion.”

When I was 15, I spent some time with this girl, who was a bit older and she left this really big impression on me. I was in love, but things never got serious. And I kept thinking about this when I wrote “Reunion”. I imagine, how it would be if we’ve met and if things would have been different. There were all these pictures in my head and I tried to put them in this song.

May 6th. The day  the quirky “Cindo De Drinko”  term doesn’t seem so quirky anymore. We might not have the best hangover cure for all those tequila shots you slammed last night, but we do have a playlist that takes minimal effort to listen to. Just keep the volume on low if you really, really need to.

Tis’ the season for music festivals and summer shows. Hopefully, you were smart enough to save up some money to hit up every show on your list. But if not, it’s ok. We’ve created a virtual show for you right here. We know, we know, it’s not the real thing, but sometimes it’s a good thing to dust off the old imagination and get lost in the music. Don’t knock it till you try it….

[MP3 Playlist] Indie Dojo Playlist (April 2014 Round #4)

indie-dojo-music-ninjaSometimes we take music for granted. We’re so used to having it around, we  forget to take a moment and appreciate all the talented people in the world that fill our silence with glorious sounds.  But imagine the world  sans music for a second. Sounds like a horrible, horrible nightmare, doesn’t it?  Luckily, this could never happen. And even if it did, the Indie Dojo’s got an arsenal of sweet, sweet lullabies to send you back into blissful dreams full of guitars, drum machines, violins, triangles, shakers, tambourines, djembes ….and the list goes on and on and on….and on. You know where to find us.
