[Chill] Oh Wonder – The Rain

artworks-000101942632-csc3mj-original
Oh Wonder
The Rain

Oh Wonder has always kept a mysterious profile, as there’s little known about the British indie duo. What we do know, however, is that their release of a new song on the first of every month is always something to look forward to. For their first release of 2015, we have “The Rain”, a chill piece featuring a lo-fi approach and the group’s distinctive vocals. The way the they harmonize in octaves is highly addicting and the pure acoustic vibe of the tune, in some ways, resembles the sound of Daughter. As the synth comes in, the feel-good melody sounds oh so mellow. Even with its minimal vibe. you’ll be impressed by the complexity towards the end of the buildup, further cementing their original sound.

I’ve given all my love to you.
These chilling words will hit you right in the feels. Even though Oh Wonder only have five releases, they’ve quickly become a TMN favorite and accumulated well over a million spins on their SoundCloud page. Their album, an accumulation of these monthly gems, will be coming out in September 2015. Let your emotions marinade for a second and enjoy this relaxing goodness.

editorspicks

2014 is finally drawing to a close, meaning it’s time to look back on the year that was. As music bloggers, most of our reflection is done through music. This year we’ve decided to bypass the obligatory rankings and lists that lead to inevitable disagreement and argument. Instead, four of our most noble editors took upon the task of arbitrarily selecting their favorites from the past twelve months and decided to share their picks with all of you. Think of it as one final gift from us for your continued support throughout 2014. We hope you enjoy the massive playlists we have below, and wish you a Happy New Years!

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.

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.
