HOT

February 11th, 2013

I know I have abandoned you guys. I admit. Guilty. I mean, I have my excuses, everyone does. I don’t really know if it matters to you, but anyways; Its real hard keeping the flowing work doing this blogging thing day in day out for 5 years. Like Chappo congratulated Lofiles on our 2nd birthday and said; 2 blogging years equals half a lifetime. We had real hard daily struggles during the last few months and still tried to keep up. Today, I feel different. Its like while I was reading the Ann Rice Vampire Lestat book, when he rose from his tomb after many years ..”to the fresh sounds of a rock band”…,. I feel I have risen to the sound of Hot Glass, the one man project Brighton’s Ryan Bal’ch (on various overheated equipment). Especially the title track of I wouldn’t forget’, his lovely EP he has released on Limited edition deep sea blue tape contained in an aqua blue case containing all 5 tracks of the EP, or as a digital download HERE.

 


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

Our dear friend and artist (whom we had featured on our last year’s Top Sixty Nine best tunes of the year) Tom Crandles had just dropped a gem on us. A new gorgeous track of his latest venture..” We are called ‘Au.Ra’ and we are a two piece”, as he states. So enjoy this mother..

 


Mouth

November 9th, 2012

It is Friday afternoon in Tel Aviv. When the weather is nice like today, those are the coffee shops hours. Fully packed. Only difference from back in the days, when I was a lot younger, that nowdays, everyone seems to be so busy using his smartphone, Laptop, Tablet, totally ignoring his companions. Me too. No exception here…Equipped with my laptop, Smatphone, headphones. Totally isolated from the outside world, listening to the new Sun Glitters single. Man, I love this guy and his sound, so sweet, a perfect balance of the raggedy and pretty..Sun Glitters is releasing a 7″ as part of the Lefse single series. Preorder it HERE.

 


Fascinator

October 30th, 2012

Tonite is a magical night. It’s a night for dark tales, about forbidden love, passion, about craving for more. Living your life at night, getting some sleep during the day. It is about a hungry beast you could hardly tame. It is about HTRK’s Fascinator. Give it a try..

 


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.

 


Premiere – Peace Lilly by Joel Robert Melton

October 28th, 2012

Sometimes, when you listen to so much new music and artists everyday like we do, you get real tired. You know, trying to discover a leader, someone that sounds unique, like no one else..Its not that I am looking for the next inventor of the wheel, but its nice to hear truly inspiring music or artist. Besides, there are so many great bands out there, which makes it real hard to make a difference. 6 months ago, I have written about a seriously nasty MF, Joel Robert Melton, Who I have discovered while he had won the respectable 2nd spot on the yearly Bandcamp Hunter countdown. I was struck by the originality, by the power of his music, the awesome guitars…The whole thing made me want to go back to my druggie days, smoke a joint or two or ten, lay down, put on headphones, and drift away, to a place where you are able to think again, be creative, and most importantly, feel. Couple of weeks ago when JRM wrote to me telling me about a new track he was completing, I was kinda hesitant, not sure how I should react if the track would not meet the high standards he had created half a year earlier. I got the track ‘Peace Lilly’ (which is the title of a future EP)2 days ago and to tell you the truth…I cant stop listening to it ever since. First of all, this psychedelic piece makes me want to use whatever he is on…Secondly, his guitars, kill me. This beautiful song, is not arranged like your typical verse chorus verse chorus type arrangement. There are 2 hypnotic parts that grow on you from the very first listen. Although real hazy and cloudy, you could tell it is carefully crafted, sounding just the way great music should be made. I am honored to premiere this track and this artist and we really thank him for the inspiration….

Engineered and mixed by Joel Robert Melton

Nearernesses

October 26th, 2012

Another song that has skipped my attention is by Ollie North, a Brian Eno of the guitar. And when I mention Brian Eno, I am talking about his older solo albums, as in Before and after science, Another green world, etc… I know those are large shoes to step into, but this guy is definitely worth the compliment. I have been listening to this hypnotic song over and over..and over again and lllllove it. Buy the Bringer EP and support this wonderful artist thus enable him keep on making such great music.
