Wounded Animals

February 15th, 2012

This is one creative MF. Joel Robert Melton sounds like no one else. ‘Ghost’, his debut, has earned him a respectable #2 spot of 2011’s Bandcamp Hunter yearly rundown and reached our 2011 top 69. This time around, with ‘Wounded animals’, the musician in him sounds like he is hurting to come out, and bursts with creativity and originality. His songwriting so unique, those guitars belong to a different decade, times of progressive rock monsters, those angelic background vocals and the whole nine, man, I’m fuckin speechless. Give some respect to artists of a different kind, ones that hopefully will stay with us for a long time. Support great art and buy this monster on a name your price kinda deal.

 


Gremlins

February 14th, 2012

..”Recorded at Page Chilton’s House in Columbia, SC during the latter half of 2011. This record seeks to express a sense of panic, reality, and death”…

A new EP by the Gremlins, yeah, that’s right, you heard me, The Gremlis, but this is no joke. This is a supergroup kinda effort by Mat Cothran (Coma Cinema, Elvis Depressedly), Patrick Jeffords (Toro y Moi ), Sam Ray (Ricky Eat Acid) and Katie Lee (Braids). The creepy yet childish vibe is achieved by the repetitious use of a keyboard phrase that hypnotizes you but keeps you on your toes. We say – go ahead, name your price and purchase the mother cause it is truly inspiring

LOFILES 2011′S SIXTYNINE

December 22nd, 2011

This collection of songs has been curated out of the 300 artists and tracks we have covered throughout the year. This has been more or less my iPod’s most abused playlist, and the magical number that we have come up with, are those songs that have accompanied us for the longest time. Those of you that will dig deeper, will realize that our heart belongs to lofi minimalistic bedroom music and we are always on the search for musicians that succeed in making inspiring music within the limitations of their homes or bedroom and despite of the fact they had no budget . SONG ORDER IS PRETTY MUCH MEANINGLESS, allthough we have placed the artists you are most likely to know at the top spots.

We wish you a Merry Christmas, a Happy Chanukah, a Joyous Kwanzaa, and a Happy New Year…and we hope next year will be as inspiring and rewarding as this one.

FULL LIST AFTER THE JUMP


BOF Merry Christmas

December 20th, 2011

Alessio says:”..In typical banjo tradition here’s my xmas album for the year. It features 9 songs that you might have heard before or not and it comes a little later because I wasn’t really going to do a xmas album this year but then since I was sick at home for the last week I decided to have a go at it. Being ill I wasn’t really able to sing but then it’s not that I am that great of a singer anyway. (In ‘Winter wonderland’ you can really hear my voice breaking and dying but I thought that was quite funny to hear!) This year’s album is quite different from the previous ones… some of these songs are way less popular than the ones I’ve covered before and in general this one is a bit more ‘crazy’ but I think it goes quite well with the other two…I had fun doing it. I hope you’ll enjoy it!”

Pleasure Center

December 13th, 2011

…”Last week Richard Swift & i got together for a few days to record these songs in my living room on a 4 track. I hope you enjoy listening to this album as much as we enjoyed making it. It was a very cathartic experience for me. Its my gift to you. Free as a bird, give it to your friends & i hope these songs resonate with you the way they do with me”…This is Jessie Baylin‘s beautiful Pleasure Center EP
