[Alternative] Fyfe – Lies Pt. II

Fyfe - Lies 2
f y f e
Lies Pt. II

Fyfe has already expressed his disdain for deceit once before, but it seems like he wasn’t quite finished with the topic. Hammering his point home for a second time, this sequel takes a much more minimalist approach than the original, with the UK crooner’s vocals floating seamlessly over a nearly vacant, serene ambient backdrop. It’s a truly beautiful song, and yet another gem to add to the London native’s excellent collection. Check out the single above, and make sure to grab yourself a free download of this wonderful tune.

[MP3 Playlist] Indie Dojo (October 2013 Round #4)

indie-dojo-music-ninjaIn our lifetime, it’s inevitable we will be placed in many, many awkward and uncomfortable situations. It’s how we deal with that situation that really matters. For some of us, we’d rather crawl into a cave and avoid confrontation at all costs. For others, we take that shit head on. Cave dwellers take note. What more do we have to lose when we face that awkwardness like a Ninja? There is always a new day and one day, in the near or far future, we will probably look back and laugh. Hey…no pressure though…if you still feel like curling up into a ball until the moment passes, let the Indie Dojo be your security blanket. It’s the least we can do….

Gentlemen HALL
Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe (Kendrick Cover)

We’ve been hearing a lot of amazing covers lately. From Drake to Daft Punk, the internet era of music has created an amazing platform to pay tribute to artist’s work. This time around, we’re excited to serve up a vocally driven version of Kendrick Lamar’s “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe.”

The slow rolling, laid back stoner jam from the Compton based hip hop giant is turned upside down from these East Coast indie rockers. With a tribal feel, Gentlemen Hall gave this tune a new identity, while still maintaining the chill vibe of the original. As expected, this tune is a free download on the groups Soundcloud page. Pick it up, light the nag champa and lie back to this one.

Goldroom
Embrace (Bixel Boys Remix)

I’m going to disregard the use of the Oakland Raiders logo on Bixel Boys’ facebook page. I’m a diehard Broncos fan (praise be to Elway) and despite the fact that I bleed orange and blue, I still love this LA based DJ/Producer duo. Their sexy dance tunes have a way of crawling under your skin, in all the best ways.

In this latest remix, the City of Angels duo has served up a loungey house tune dialed in with vocals from Goldroom’s indie pop tune, “Embrace.” What once was a synth laden pop tune has been twisted up with a heavy serving of sexy bass, ready to be enjoyed by dance floors across America. The drum work is particurily enticing, clashing perfectly with the high pitched vocals and melodic synths,

This tune begs to be thrown on the next time you’re trying to get that special someone into the sheets. There’s no denying these vocals won’t help your situation.

Kulkid
U Were The One

With progressive house, electro house, dubstep…shit. With all mainstream EDM starting to sound more and more alike these days, it’s always refreshing to hear someone doing something different. With an exotic flair, up and coming DJ/Producer Kulkid has just fired this track over from France, which lit up our ears and smiles.

This debut original is crackling with atmospheric layering of jungle noises, guitar strums and contorted vocal samples. While it maintains everything that’s great about dance music, it’s unique and refreshing. Take one listen through and try to tell us that it didn’t get your hips moving.

Love Jones

As we stare out into the falling leaves, the wind rustling them to and fro, we’re left feeling a significant yearning for warmer days. While our flip flop adorned dreams are far from a reality, at least we have the warm, sunny tunes of Wayward to keep us warm through the cold winter months.

This debut single is all sorts of summer with it’s playful synths, soulful vocals and dance inducing beat is just what the doctor ordered. All of us at TMN would like to send a heartfelt thank you to this UK based outfit. We’re all our tropical shirts underneath our winter coats.
