This song is elegant, intimate, strong, comforting, personal, and enchanting. I only heard it for the first time on the local Las Vegas user selected music station, Jelli.com here http://www.jelli.com/kyli/.
Also, I found a remixed version of the song, or perhaps the full-length version of the song, in full house music style, with a different video on YouTube, entitled…

Relax, sit back and let the day unwind, let go of the struggle and enjoy the moment. Lips Songs brings the gentle casio synth into the background of our day like a soft breeze on a cool august evening. The minimalistic and humble pace of this Brooklyn New York solo artist is true easy listening. There’s a slight Corrine Bailey Rae cuteness that is inexorable but pleasant and brings an sweet innocence to the tracks. You could just reach out and pinch the song’s cheeks.

From the San Francisco California/ Hason Ohio based duo electronic music group Andain springs a fount of light-weight beautiful trance music that is perfect for the soft sound music lover. Their soft airy vocals and music box chimes paint dreamy love songs and emotive soundscapes. Many of their other tracks fall square into the dance trance genre with steady pulsing drum beats and long fade-in fade-out synth intros and pumping heartbeats with high-hat accompaniment. However, this song Promises, along with the rest of the songs on their soon to be released full debut album should prove more diverse than their previous works that they began with when they were first founded in 2001. The group has recollected and I’m looking forward to the rest of what their new album.
Andain’s new sound movement is familiar to fans of Imogen Heap, M83, Kate Havnevik and other creators of love inducing electronic music appropriate for any fantasy film, authors of deeply emotive and powerful music who tend to incorporate more classical instruments and more classical vocal elements.
Lourdes Hernández is the heart and soul of Russian Red. I heard this beautiful song of hers while watching the film Room in Rome. Her simple but touching acoustic love songs contain a genuine sweetness and innocence made unforgettable by her talented and ranged voice. Although from Spain Lourdes sings in English to allow wider reception and understanding of her music. Listen to more of her songs on the Russian Red’s MySpace page and learn more at the Eureka Records music page for Russian Red.
Hello Vegas is actually from Los Angeles, under their own Treehouse Vibrations Group record label. The four man group consisting of Adam Reiter, Jason Pavilanis, Jesse Gurtis, and Zach Davis recently released their latest song “No One Knows” for free download.
Their music is a free living LA indie rock blend of clean rising guitar riffs and wind swept vocals. Their tracks sound like a live show on a grassy hill on a sunny west coast evening. The melodic sweeps and soft vocal interludes feels a bit like the Inspiration of Christian Rock mixed with the smooth easiness of classic soft rock, however, they are far from a Christian band (which makes me wonder what it would mean to be the farthest possible thing from a Christian band… imagination gears turning). The band keeps a fresh profile and I’m sure would love to connect with you on their Twitter on Facebook page which serves as their official site. For a kick you’ve gotta check out their concert posters and band images on their MySpace page. These guys have a great sense of humor. And just because they sent it to me, here’s their band photo, featuring several tenacious neck beards.
Singer Songwriter Jo Hamilton’s music is light, playful, intimate, captivating, and fully featured. Her songs are anything but standard, each one introduces a variety of styles, intros, creative harmonies, instruments, and melodies. Her voice is reminiscent of Annie Lennox and Feist but with the creativity and playfulness of Bjork. One can only appreciate the artfulness of her music video and use of non-traditional instruments.
Jo Hamilton’s debut album “Gown” features this song along with several other journeys in sound and harmony that are sure to pleasantly surprise. Perhaps Jo’s eclectic style can be attributed to her multi-cultural and always traveling up-bringing which took her around the world to places that most people would never imagine could be combined together into one lifetime.
Take a look at this short film which covers the making of her album Gown to get a better feel for who Jo is and get a deeper glimpse into her enchanting world.
Jo’s album was released under the creative audiophile record label Poseidon Records out Birminham UK.
I just noticed Tania Zygar on a friend’s Facebook page and decided to investigate. I was very impressed. Part of the credit goes to “tyDi”, AKA – Tyson Illingworth, the #1 DJ in Australia who’s hit it big on Armin Van Buuren’s Armada record label. The combination of talent and experience with both of these young musical heavy-weights is all you need. It really doesn’t get any better than this. If you think it does, please share the love in the comments below or on the Song of the Day Facebook or Twitter page. We all love great music and there’s no reason to keep it all to yourself.
This playful tune comes from a band that got its humble start in the form of a mix tape for a girl. The band, Throw Me A Statue grew from 2005-2007 on a local Seattle DIY record label Baskerville Hill with a friendly local following of friends attending shows which grew and started getting press. In 2007 the group got picked up by another record label out of Indiana Secretly Canadian and re-released their album in February of 2008 which has led to good reviews and an international tour.
I’ll just copy the rest of their story directly from the space age font on their Official Throw Me The Statue bio page.
In the beginning of 2009 the band began work on the follow-up LP and headed into the studio for the first time. With Phil Ek (The Shins, Built to Spill, Band of Horses) on board as co-producer, the group consisting of Reitherman, Aaron Goldman, Charlie Smith and Jarred Grimes sought to enlarge the scope of TMTS’ lo-fi bedroom pop. The resulting full length record entitled Creaturesque will be released in the US and Europe by Secretly Canadian on August 4th, and soon thereafter in Aus/NZ by PopFrenzy and in Japan by MerryGate Records.
After reading the lyrics for this song and watching the music video a few times I feel like I just had a fruit wonderful smoothie rich in love-sick adolescent hormones and high-school memories, it’s healthy for the body but the sugar high leaves my thoughts a little fuzzy. I can’t quite put my finger on a proper clinical analysis of the whole affair but I found a line here in my notes that seems to sum it all up, “I love this song, stop thinking, just enjoy it”. I guess when you’ve got a Lolita on your brain there’s not much thinking required.
Brooke Fraser is already very popular and has hit #1 and #3 in music charts consistently in Australia and New Zealand. Now after signing with Sony she’s running around the world to share her new intimate soul sharing album Flags which was released in October 2010.
This song of hers continues to rise up from small beginnings into something great and powerful. It inspires, instills wonder in our minds, and stirs passion in our hearts. A love song asking, what makes me love you like I do? It must be something in the water she says, pointing to that deep mysterious and unexplainable feeling we have when we become deeply moved and impassioned by someone who has taken our heart. I can keep listening to this song again and again, and the music video artfully jumping from one life-style to another paints stories that we can relate to of love found and beauty that it brings.
