Ólafur Arnalds

September 21st, 2009

In April 2009, Iceland’s neo-classical export Ólafur Arnalds created the 7-song series ‘Found Songs’ – recording a song a day for 7 days and instantly making each track available via Twitter. With artwork contributions from fans via Flickr, this modern release awakens memories of a tradition that seemed lost in the digital age we live in. Ólafur’s ‘Found Songs’ will now see a proper North American release on cinematic pop label Erased Tapes on November 10.Music video for LJOSID was viewed by over 400,000 people.

I didnt post this because the numbers impressed me, its just that I really dig what this guy is doing, his music and the way it was promoted . I love the video

When the smoke clears

September 20th, 2009

About Naja Rosa -…”Who am I? Somewhat of a traveler. Grew up amongst wild roses and summer berries. Crooked houses and wild children. In the south harbor of Copenhagen. With music and strange excistances. Traveled through europe in an old van with my parents and sister, playing and singing in the city streets… And performing on huge stages in the north with my mom and dad’s group ‘The Savage Rose’. From Greenland to Norway to Denmark. Moving to the land of Los Angeles. The dreams of Hollywood. The grand of grand. The smiles. Here’s looking at you kid! Tarantino stories. Long avenues and boulevards. Palmtrees. Valleys. Superstars and rock and rollers. And traffic. From west to east, found true love in the New York streets. Brooklyn. And jazz in the subways. Lonely saxofones and lights of night. New York. Character. Movement. Life. I am dancing. Andy Warhol and Billie Holiday. Bob Dylan. New York keeps talking. Individuals. I breathe and sing. Aya. Someone took me to Puerto Rico, the enchanted island. And the freedom of the ocean. But I lost someone so close to me on the mountain of love. The music wanted to keep playing. Now I’m moving to be where I feel free from city to city. Singing my songs and sharing my stories. My first solo album is almost done! With amazing musicians who brought their souls. The magic and strenght of music – with the craziness of this one life. I keep going. And I keep growing. The Love”… –
When the smoke clears is a song Tarantino would love to use for one of the wild scenes of his movies.

Skip vonKuske

September 13th, 2009

Skip VonKuske is a cello player, musician, performer, singer/ songwriter and a producer.
While at Michigan State University, Skip VonKuske performed with numerous regional orchestras and in several original music projects, in which he also played bass, guitar and mandolin.
When Skip moved to Portland, Oregon in 1994, his skills as an improviser and singer/songwriter set him apart from many other classically trained musicians. In his first three years in Portland he recorded with well over fifty artists. And over the last decade, Skip’s cello has provided added value and texture, to hundreds of recordings including M. Ward’s “Post War” and Pink Martini’s “Sympathique”.
Skip has also worked with the Oregon Symphony and performed with Smokey Robinson Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Judy Collins, Crystal Gayle and many others. He stays active in the Portland’s Jazz community and continues to collaborate with film makers, producers, chamber music groups and is the first call of top music studios whenever a professional cellist is needed, whether their client has chord charts, written parts, or even no preconceived ideas.
I am bringing you samples from his album Intuit. If u like it as much as I did, go and buy it

The Freelance Whales

September 13th, 2009

Their music is as beautiful and unique as the album cover above. “The freelance whales“. Got to listen to it.


Jupiter one

September 13th, 2009

Jupiter one is Another band I know nothing of, just that they are from NYC and that they made me smile twice today. The first time was when I have heard Flaming arrow and the second time was when I have listened to Simple stones. Check it out. This is real good stuff, even if a little poppy.


The $

September 13th, 2009

The Queens answer to Pink Floyd. The American dollar are John Emanuele and Rich Cupolo and together they create wonderful instrumental ambient experimental music. Rich hammond organ and pad parts, wet lush sounding guitars, beautiful strings and analogue keys textures. First time saw the photo above I thought they are Hip hoppers and the first note really took me by surprise. Listen
