Mariana

April 23rd, 2013

I have discovered this wonderful artist through a message I just got from an Argentinian friend I have met few years ago in Tel Aviv. Lautaro Feldman is an ultra talented 8 string guitar player/ musician and has a concert coming up with Mariana Paraway, a singer/ songwriter you got to listen to. If you are lucky enough to be catching them while on mini tour, you are not going to be disappointed, I could assure you that much.

 


Highway Landscapes

January 13th, 2013

Pauline Andres’s music is being described as ”Liquor soaked alt-country made in Berlin”, Born in France, Pauline Andrès plays guitar and writes stories about drunks, working men and hipsters, even if she admits knowing less about the latter. She sings about hangovers, the hunt for a home, Russian fairytales and sometimes murders too. Born in a French minors town on the border in a mixed family, long trips across Europe were part of growing up. Listening to rock and country music too. “I’ve always related to Southern US music just as much as French accordion. It’s a shame we didn’t have something similar to Blues and Country here when all the men used to work in the mine… or even once they all got laid off”.

In 2012, she settled down in Berlin after much roaming and started working with other musicians in town and recently started gigging between Kreuzberg and Neukölln. We received couple of demos and we really dig her dramatic Marlene Dietrich voice and Nick Cave‘s dark story telling ballads. Check out her demo ‘Highway-landscapes’.

Misspelled Santa Satan/ An Exclusive Lofiles/ Emit Bloch Merry Christmas song

December 22nd, 2012

American country beatnik and our absolute favorite trooper Emit Bloch makes lofi bluegrass music, relying on a rare combination of lyricist/narrative/ songwriter abilities, in addition to his guitar playing and picking. Our lofi troubadour recorded the songs of his debut album Dictaphones Vol. 1 at home from his kitchen table for the princely sum of just £6, with all tracks recorded directly to Dictaphone. Now, he has sent us an exclusive Christmas song clip, tilted “Misspelled Santa Satan, shot by his girlfriend/ companion photographer Kate Garner….absolutely gorgeous my friends. I just wanted to add a better reflecting and updated bio of Emit, suitable for his colorful charcter; ..”Emit Bloch is a songwriting, tennis-playing expatriot with Mormon and Jewish roots who finds the legalization of cannabis an interesting prospect. He divides his time between London and San Francisco and occasionally performs. His 2010 release Dictaphones Vol. 1 (One Little Indian) received widespread critical acclaim. He is releasing an as-of-yet untitled collection of new songs in 2013 as well as an EP with his four piece band, Done Four, which Bloch describes as his “rock outlet.”…

Merry Christmas to ya all, from Emit and us at Lofiles and here is A LINK for a free download


Water Music

November 30th, 2012

Mathew Barker hales from Australia and writes great simple songs, the way songs are ought to be written, if you guys forgot, living in this total different era that we live in, and he releases them under the name Water Music. His romantic songs are talking about issues that one might have forgotten existed, about loneliness, heartbreak, death, passion and global issues in general accompanied by mellow folky acoustic and electric guitars, sparse and tasteful…although one might claim there is nothing new with the direction or sound in general, it all starts with the fact that a good song is a good song is a…good song..

Geek love is the best love

November 19th, 2012

I am so tired. Was sick all day long and didn’t get my daily doze of love today. Tough. Seriously. I was real happy to find a copy of our dear friend Jacob Faurholt new EP titled ‘Geek love is the best love’ in my mailbox. Jacob would remind you of singer/songwriters in the vein of Bonnie Prince Billy, maybe a softer Lou Reed, with a slight melodic Bill Callahan resemblance. I was listening to this record and my favorite off this EP ‘Hiding in the shadows’ few times in a row now and it really brought different perspective to this fucked up day.

Black tree swallowed us

October 30th, 2012

Today is a screwed up day. On a day like this you don’t understand the purpose of creation. You don’t understand why everything got to be so complicated, frustrating, insulting, and painfull. Haruki Naginata’s ‘Black tree swallowed us’ is a much better ending to a dreadful day.

 


Cant you see?

October 21st, 2012

If Sun Glitters and many others choose LA singer Steffaloo for their projects, we are in. Regardless to the nature of their electronic productions, she prefers simple folk instrumentation for her own music.

Appalachia

September 20th, 2012

The 2nd single, “Appalachia”, off Chelsea Wolfe’s haunting 3rd album, Unknown Rooms is a tragic folk ballad, brimming with devastating repetitive guitars, bass & drums & also featuring a beautiful string section that brings despair, hope & love to the song when accompanied with Ms. Wolfe’s voice. Stream it below.

 


Man Meets Bear & Murawaji

September 14th, 2012

Got a facebook message from Soren (Soren little brothers);..”In case you’re interested, I thought I’d share with you a couple of new albums I’ve just finished. This one is the newest Man meets Bear, and was recorded by Jacob Faurholt in Berlin with a full band (David Dunnett and Evelyn Malinowski/Experimental Housewife)”…Well, I love this album as much as I loved the previous one.

 

The second (Murawaji: Rebel Samurai) was recorded by the Midori F’z (part of the White Funz) in Japan earlier this year, and tells the story of the life and death of a samurai
