The Powers of Trevor

May 17th, 2011

Trevor Powers knows a thing or two about writing songs, as well as performing and recording it. You could hear his signature already, a bit similar to Cat power and her arrangements, soaking his vocals in reverb, using sparse and basic drum patterns, sometimes a kick part only, and some cheesy electric pianos and keys, or simple yet perfect guitar roles, make them all blend into perfectly crafted lofi pop songs.

Youth Lagoon, the project of  Trevor Powers, has been raising a hell of a web buzz lately, and I was debating whether I should be covering him too, when I got a mail from Hannah Baker, our US indie bedroom music Ambassador, wondering if I had listened to this dude yet. Today, after listening to July about fifty times, I had to share it with you. Thanx Hannah, you got a great taste.

Petites Planetes

May 14th, 2011

For those of you who have never heard of Vincent moon; (real name Mathieu Saura, (Paris, August 25, 1979)) is an independent filmmaker from Paris mainly known for his field work music videos of indie rock related musicians and is mostly known for his Take away series of the French trendy La Blogotheque. Besides making music videos he also makes experimental films and documentaries. We have just received this announcement:

…” After 5 years of documenting various forms of independent music, mostly in the realms of European and North American rock and pop music, I needed to explore other cultures, other sounds, and as much as possible expose some rare musicians to another light. My label Petites Planetes, born this year, is made of portraits of my favourite musicians around the world, mostly in non-english speaking countries. The goal behind Petites Planetes, amongst others, is to develop another idea of what has been categorized ‘world music’ for many years, by exploring on the spots lifes and cultures, from traditionnal music, to experimental and popular sounds. Showing those cultures to themselves, and not only for another type of western viewer, organizing filmings as many little local and social events involving the local people, while at the same time experimenting the relationships between music and cinema”.

Future songs

May 14th, 2011

Pat Jordache says he is inspired by the music of good friend and past collaborator Merrill Garbus who performs under the pseudonym tUnE-yArDs. The duo’s previous band dissolved after Garbus’ departure for California to pursue her new musical venture.

Future Songs, Pat`s solo project was marked complete in the late winter of 2010 when Jordache’s computer was stolen. Despite lengthy efforts toward relocating the missing machine, the sessions and masters were lost. The only remaining backup, an 160 kbps MP3 version of the record, was released on cassette and Bandcamp as the first incarnation of Future Songs.

Wave file format backup mixes eventually surfaced, remastered and released by Constellation records.

Hilvarenbeek

May 13th, 2011

Jimmy Joe Roche is an American visual artist residing in Baltimore, MD. His videos have been screened internationally in venues including the Royal Academy of Arts in London, Roskilde Music Festival in Denmark, Boston Institute of Contemporary Art, J. Paul Getty Museum , Clair-obscur Filmfestival in Switzerland, and Baltimore Musesum of Art to name only a few. Roche has toured the US performing live video and sound work with his friend and collaborator Dan Deacon, as well as other Baltimore musicians. In 2008 Roche had his first solo show at Rare Gallery in New York, and is currently preparing for his second solo show at Rare scheduled for the fall of 2010.

In 2010, composer Dan Deacon Jimmy Joe Roche of the Wham City art collective were invited to a three-week residency in Hilvarenbeek, Netherlands as part of Incubate, a multidisciplinary international arts festival. Dan and Jimmy used those three weeks to shoot a short film. Working loosely from a collaborative script, they filmed local residents as actors & singers, with little rehearsal and shooting very few takes. Several additional scenes were appended last-minute, inspired by the locations and props available.

 

Hilvarenbeek” interweaves the Baltimore DIY aesthetic, popular Americana, the rich beauty of the Netherlands, and Dutch cutlure into a surreal narrative. The result is a melting pot of experimental performance & sound, pop fantasy, and social commentary. “Hilvarenbeek” debuted at the Maryland Film Festival on May 8, 2011.

Listen to this incredible track ‘The World’
