LANKS - Settle Down (Official Video)

Pre-order LANKS' sophomore EP 'Banquet' now on iTunes itunes.apple.com/album/id993037636 Clip created/directed by LANKS and Will Devereux.
Hanna Pinheiro's insight:
LANKS aka Will Cuming , nascido em Melbourne, é um projeto eletrônico indie solo, com um ar de quê misterioso. Evocando mesmo que distante uma melodia folk - o que devemos, de fato, esperar de um compositor de Melbourne , variando entre arranjos expansivos e uma tentativa bem sucedida de transcender, combinadas com este vocal suave. De uma forma ousada, ele consegue alcançar seu objetivo . Suave aos ouvidos . Recomendo para todos,, mesmo se você não gosta desse tipo de música . Ele se descreve como " tendo partes do groove intrincado do Radiohead, preenchido com camadas vocais de Bon Iver , e famed dead space de Jamie XX" - E eu não posso discordar.

LANKS aka Will Cuming, natural from Melbourne is an uncanny solo indie eletronic project. With somewhat of evoking tunes in a folk way - which we could expect from a Melbourne songwriter, varying between an enigmatic venture and a lot of soundscape hooks combined with this soothing voca. He got what it takes. Soft in the ears, dreamy as can get. It is a must listen - in every way, even if you dont like this kind of music. He describes himself as "taking parts from Radiohead’s intricate grooves, Bon Iver’s vocal layering, and Jamie XX’s famed dead space" - And I cannot disagree.

8/10 For this music in particular, but for all his work latelly 9/10.

Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks - Little Fang (Official Video) - YouTube

Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks - Little Fang (Official Video) Director: Abby Portner Enter The Slasher House is out April 7/8th on Domino. Order it now and get a...

Hanna Pinheiro's insight:

The former co-lead from Animal Collective formed a new band featuring ex-Dirty Projectors member Angel Deradoorian and former Ponytail drummer Jeremy Hyman, calling themselves as a "jazz power trio", this way they created Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks a stripped-down, garage-band, power-trio formation.
Portner once said in a interview to Pitchfork "the Slasher Flicks concept was born of a desire to mess around with the sort of 60s garage-rock and horror-movie tropes that yielded novelty hits like “Monster Mash.”
This Time Portner was more influenced bt the 70's and traded the once rhythmic clatter and electro that always was a backsound to his voice and now has a hook in a easy-listening and uplifting rock groove.
This song in particular is a little crafty and has a mix using the cheese and the creepy, creating an air of innocence in the melody, as in the lyrics.

Son Lux - "Alternate World" (Official Video) - YouTube

From the album "Lanterns", available on Joyful Noise Recordings get it from ITunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/lanterns/id697161093 or from Bandcamp: ...

Hanna Pinheiro's insight:


Ryan Lott, aka Son Lux, is stil trying to find himself somewhere between his eternals and classics influences and the ideia of future music - somehow the goal of creating a "futural" kind of thing always give the artists that we have to do something that is "astral".

Lanterns its a battle of a music's new concept, every midi sound, every beat, its hardly worked.
I'm pushing the ideia of MiDIS sounds, because even the vocals are shaped into some moods ambient sounds and they become just another instrument inside the context, taking in wide-angle, Son Lux’s give some complexes arrangements and then highlight over a less than complex lyricism, transforming the lyrics in something you just pass by, So all the album its processed until they shy away all the vocals.

By the end, there are a lot of mixed riffs transpassing each other, spinning into a uteringc mass of sound while a shy choir voices navegates far above.

The predominating here are the beat markers that come along with some spice of orchestral musical, wich makes a great sound and a reborn of the way we see classical music, nothing that wasn't done before, ok - I give you that - but, if its good, if works, if no one its doing for a long time, we can call it a smart ideia.

FINS - Transatlantic Tryst - YouTube

The second single from FINS. download for free @ http://fins.bandcamp.com http://facebook.com/finsband
Hanna Pinheiro's insight:

Formed by Sam Glick, Alec Mapes-Frances, Kami Sabghir-Frota, and Max Weiss, this innovating band brings a sound from beyond earth bounderies.
Despite their flaws as a new band, and the lot of things to evolve, it is notable that they are still trying to acomplish something, its easy to see their potential.

The lo-bpm and the echoed vocal makes it just as fine as any good eletronic music. 

They particulary remember me something about daft punk in the begging of the duo carrer, what makes me like them even more. 

The chill vibe that turns out with the synthetic beats makes them so easy to listening that you can play it anytime. 

So enjoy it.

Avid Dancer - Stop Playing With My Heart

Explore the largest community of artists, bands, podcasters and creators of music & audio

Hanna Pinheiro's insight:

This is Jacob Summers, aka Avid Dancer, a world champion at the art of rudimental snare drumming and former U.S. Marine. Born in Tennessee and raised in Alaska and now living in LA.
He released as a debut single "Stop Playing with My Heart", and surf-pop & psych-rock merge.
That sounds something like Tame Impala singed by Erlend Oye.
His retro vocal, a hopefull lyric with this bittersweet romantic vibe, its just what we expect from a revival of sounds from the 60's.

Honeyblood - Bud (Official Video) - YouTube

Honeyblood's debut single 'Bud', released November 4th on FatCat. Pre-order the limited edition 7-inch vinyl here: http://fatcat.sandbaghq.com/catalog/produc...

Hanna Pinheiro's insight:

This Glasgow-based duo, Stina Tweeddale (vocals, guitar) &Shona McVicar (vocals, drums), inovated the local scene and revitalised with songs with so much emotion and a vocal that is so sweet that just a bitter lyrics to make it bareable - and this was done, the “noisy Scottish girls” are a perfect match, every beat and every chord are in perfect harmony.
This two girls, actually, have already been heard a lot - travelling in tours with big bands and big artists.

In particular their sound please me very much, they have this confindence and the energgy, but also this sweetness in every beat, and a raw drum with a lo-fi guitar that its just what I was looking for in this rainy Sunday.

They have the capacity for big things, having beating a lot of others debut singles "in making a buzz". So its not a surprise if somehow, somewhere, someday - if you enter in a underground bar this is playing, or you see he lyrics written in some bad coursive letter at some bathroom somewhere.

Mashrou' Leila - Raksit Leila [ official video by yelostudio] download the album on itunes: http://itunes.apple.com/album/mashrou-leila/id403887520 ElHal Rom...

Hanna Pinheiro's insight:

Mashrou’ Leila, a seven-person band-formed, is one of the top Lebanese alternative rock/folk band in the past few years, creating a little fuzz on the underground scene.

They have a young, funny, easy listening sound that mixed with a lot of creativity makes them very remarkable, overall their songs are just needed to be heared, either because of the vocal that brings a unique transition in the melody or for the talented compilation of low beats.

Their lyrics are a form of satire for a lot of issues going around the past years.

 

An 9 out of a 10.

Hanna Pinheiro's insight:

Shaka Bundu is a soundtrack celebration for the changes South African society post-Apartheid.

Penny (aka Giyani Kulani)  released (first single) Shaka Bundu, his debut album, just six months after the fall of apartheid.

A genious hit in a not very well known language (Xitsonga), Shaka Bundu resumes the feeling of a certain moment in South Africa's history.

 Penny Penny describes his sound as “breakdance and Michael Jackson, mixed with African style."

This is a  relaxing and confident track, just enough to make you fall in love. 


(Papa Penny was born in South Africa, the last child of 68 fathered by a traditional healer with 25 wives. Government policy forced him out of house and school and into exploitive labour (25 cents / month) at the age of 10. For 34 years while apartheid reigned, he dreamt of a becoming a star like Michael Jackson or MC Hammer (...) Penny was discovered sleeping in a studio that he had been hired to clean, and miraculously, instead of being fired, was given a chance. “Shaka Bundu” was recorded in 7 days- http://testpressing.org/2013/11/penny-penny-shaka-bundu-awesome-tapes-from-africa/ ;)

Hanna Pinheiro's insight:

I stumbled in this avantgarde Pop Israel-born, while looking for something somewhat of a chill-pop and easy to listen to.

Ofrin Started out as a chorus singer for Israel's army what leaded to develop this lazy jazz voice.

The melody is very simples, a warm off-key vocal and minimal beats.

Hanna Pinheiro's insight:

Melbourne songwriter Dan Sultan has unveiled his first new song in four years.

“It’s a pretty dark track. But it’s a love song,” said Sultan of his latest single."

Under Your Skin is pretty good despite its brevity, making the most of a rock song in such a short time. But still doesn't  reach everything as it could, altought it has a killer vocal.

Hanna Pinheiro's insight:

Three words to describe Hudson Taylor "uplifting indie folk". A young Irish Duo that with a lot of passion instantly grips you, their melody takes you to that uplifiting feeling of resolution. Altought the lyrics don't follow that same patern.

Without a doubt they're very talented, even if Battles seems slightly repetitive the vocal delivery force your attention off the instrumentation, getting the best of a good folk song; that embrancing mensagem of hope.

U.S. Royalty - Equestrian - YouTube

Artist: U.S. Royalty - Song: Equestrian - Album: Mirrors Download "Mirrors" here: http://usroyalty.bandcamp.com/
Hanna Pinheiro's insight:

Something about U.S. Royalty makes a slight association to Badly Drawn Boy, maybe this deeply feeling of will to live with a little of romantism. 
Spite of their forays into folk music, US Royalty develop a more pseudo-spiritul, theatrical rock sound as the album "Mirrors" progresses. 

Specially in "Equestrian" echoes and nostalgic feels herald.

MTNS, a Brisbane-based trio formed by Tom Eggert, Joseph Thiang, and Robbie Hellberg, creating an encapsuled chillwave that has gained a big recognition. 

Savages the new ep from MTNS  is new wave formed, dull, easy listening for those who loves a coma electro-indie that starts dull and ends with a """up-beat""" Slowly.

MTNS become the band you remember for every day of your mortal existence.

Blunda - If You Want Me

Explore the largest community of artists, bands, podcasters and creators of music & audio
Hanna Pinheiro's insight:

Blunda is not well-known, yet, here it is a artist with a lot of creativity, or at least a lot of musical bagage.
He bounced around since the 90's, being around with guys like Fastball, as their keyboardist, in his early 20's. But his really a 80's child,
His first album solo is Messages, like its cover, we have the seducation in his music to fall from grace, and fall beatutifully.
This album is exciting, chilly and very promising, he seems a lot with a mix of Radiohead, Keane, Depeche Mode. But has he own thing.

Caught a Ghost – Time G

Explore the largest community of artists, bands, podcasters and creators of music & audio

Hanna Pinheiro's insight:

All I can really say about this EP its that in general brings somewhat of a reminder how to feel at the same time triumphant and hopeless.
Jesse Nolan does not disapoint bringuing sorrow and meeting at the limit the beat, with his lo-vocal, kind in the background, creating a smooth atmosphera - that makes almost every song of Caught a Ghost incredible nostalgic with their groovy influenced by the classics blues & jazz.
The unique thing here is that they still caught the ideia of renovating - los angeles can be very helpfull in showing to the world really inovating artists - and they do this by mixing the chill electronic sound with some music's old friends.

MSNRA - SOUL A LA MOD

Hanna Pinheiro's insight:

I`m not at all a Hip-Hop fan, but this collective just make all my senses fly away, this is as perfect as can get - at least for me. 

A group of eight very, very, talented artists - young artists - with little bagage, but a lot to show. 

This new band, displays in their sound something that I never heard before, new beats, new sound, and vocals are all in harmony.

They are progressive - and are showing that Hip Hop plus electro doesn`t have to be all about dubstep.

Let`s keep an visionary eye at this guys, every day their numbers of fans are incresing, also they can be the future of electronic fused with hip-hop.

Hanna Pinheiro's insight:

A new spain-based band, Maybe Nots have a total and a new original style, becoming really hard to classify them in any genre known. Formed by artists with a variety of roots, from metal to post rock, they did not fail to create a bridge to fill all the gaps between this styles, including bringing Soul to Hip-Hop. Resulting in a band that have no fear to try new things, with a up beat and spanish influences they show us that is possible to inovate music, still.

Hanna Pinheiro's insight:

Something like Foster the People have a baby with Miike Snow and then leave it to Modest Muse to create, thats what this track sounds like. 

With a great punch line "I’m living my dreams until the day I die.", this stoner rocker has everything that a catchy song needs - a sing along lyric, a lo beat and simple chrords bridges.

I can easly picture a small group walking down the streets, singing this, going to the beach at a sunny but not very hot day.

From the producer Shawn Rosenblatt aka NetherFriends, that he alone just has a very interest past and history - produced 50 states project, doing one song for each state (you can find it at his bandcamp). 


This is a summer jam that you can easily listen all day long and sing for a lot of days without getting annoyed - sunny melody with the right spot of chill.

Thandiswa - Lahlumlenze - YouTube

Thandiswa Mazwayi - LAHLUMLENZE A true South African DIVA
Hanna Pinheiro's insight:

Thandiswa Mazwai brings a youthful energy and has been big in South Africa.

All musical styles post-apartheid fight with the traditional and contemporary and this singer in particular is one of the prevailing artists in this modern pattern of African Sounds.

Thandiswa express a lot in hers lyrics about her homeland and it struggles to recover from a troubled past.

The variety of beats and diversity on Zabalaza can make it not so easy for the public to like every song on it, but also makes it hard not to like any of them. She brings the  moody songs as well she does it very rhythmically jumpy pieces presenting the best of both worlds.

Althought it has a lot of American influence and in this debut álbum in particular she strugles between English lyrics and Xhosa ones.

 

Resuming its a very well accomplished solo debut, well-sung, well-played, well-rythimed, well done overall.

And if its not for you, its just because you don't like this mellow sound, cause this álbum in particular its filled with honey all over the place.

Hanna Pinheiro's insight:

From Stonian Ewert and the Two Dragons (EE), very well known in the baltics, now conquering their popularity  in Europe as well as in the US.


They have a unique modern Nordic folk sound, the album  “Good Man Down” got them 5(!) EMA, also gave them the top of the ’Hit of the Year’ award from one of the most important Estonia’s radio channel.

Mostly because before their formal independence from the Soviet Union in 1991 almost all kind of music and musical instruments were banned by the Estonian government. 

According to Erki (http://wers.org/2013/10/24/ewert-and-the-two-dragons-live-in-studio/) “Our parents’ generation, they all knew how to build their own guitars” said Erki. “They used phone wires to make guitar strings and they used the speaker from a telephone to make a distortion pedal.”.


In general  their songs are based in lyrics there are a little messy, combining country-ish verse (aka experimental folk) w/ rhythmic tunes and Ewert’s kinda lazy voice with a cherry on the top of a cowboy pronunciation.

Megalomania is the 1º (and incredible) single from debut full-length, in the past he has debuted with the EP ‘Valediction’ (2010), by Bolivian-born and Berlin-based electronic indie-folk, pop singer/songwriter David Lemaître. Like all these new talented minds with a lot of roots and influences, 'The idea is to be in a state of constant departure while always arriving', and I really don't feel I actually belong somewhere. But I like that. Take the best from all the places and people you mingle with. I don't define myself through where I'm from anymore. It's more important where you're going". "Deceptively simple, Latitude is full of tiny details that hint at a colourful, international background that traverses continents just as Lemaitre has." 8 and a half out of a 10.

Hanna Pinheiro's insight:

Country meets soul, sound meets spirit, Vance meets Joy. 

 

Vance Joy (James Keogh) debuted with the EP God Loves You When You’re Dancing. The 25-years-old Australian song-writer with a heat and up beat guitar chords is a born poetic. 

Riptide its that sing along road trip kinda of music you just can't get enough, with a catchy melody that makes his work sounds a little like a pop sog. 

The use of a ukulele brings some lightness to his songs that the acoustic guitar wouldn't be able to.

Hanna Pinheiro's insight:

Did you ever wish to see what happens when you mix Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake and James Morrison together?

You get the talented London based, Dutch singer, Bo Saris.

Kinda new school blue-eyed soul espoused by artists like Mayer Hawthorne or Fitz and the Tantrums. 

“Little Bit More” is soulful and pleasantly nostalgic without being superficial, with a catchty melody. 
In love with this  wonderful combination of the golden vintage soul intertwined with the current neo-soul wave.
