Finally after a long wait and plenty of patience, La Vagabonde II is here! What an absolute beauty she is and simply a dream come true. If you haven’t had a look at the latest episode, you can experience the joy by following the link below. I’ve got a feeling the new SLV episodes are about to transcend anything we’ve seen before, this episode is really just the beginning of a new and extremely bright future. The world is your oyster and if you dream big, you really can achieve big too.
What an awesome selection of talented original artists we have the privilege of sharing this week, this music makes my cells tingle with joy. I really can’t stress enough just how important their musical contribution to the show is, this music really sets the tone of our show and without it I cant imagine how SLV would ‘feel’. So please help us to expose these musicians to as many people as possible and share the enjoyment of their good vibrations with just the click of a finger. Like, share, comment, tell us what you think, we would love to hear from all of you. Please feel free to head on over to our Soundcloud account where we upload a playlist each week with the new artists. Its absolutely free to do so and you can have a listen right here if you so wish.
Lowland Hum – http://facebook.com/lowlandhum
Husband and Wife team Daniel and Lauren Goans craft beautifully emotive art-folk music, featuring vocals with harmonies that interweave and impress the couples warmth and intimacy. Beneath their heartfelt delivery of poetry is a simple and driving guitar rhythm that provides a base on which to lather their soothing vocal responsibilities upon. Hailing from Charlottesville, Virginia, the band has toured extensively since their 2013 inception, earlier in the year they released their third full length album, Thin. It is well worth a listen if you enjoy dynamic and evocative folk music.
Martin Piehlmeier – www.martinpiehlmeier.com
This tremendously talented guitarist strums, picks, slaps and beats his way through songs which are rhythmically complex and captivating. Although lacking a vocal presence, the music produced from a single guitar is melodically impressive and does all of the talking. Pacing his way through several different moods in every song, each turn of a corner is another practice in guesswork, wondering where Martin will take you next in the soundscape he delicately weaves.
Adam Yoo – https://soundcloud.com/adamyoo_music
Hailing from Canada, Adam Yoo creates a vibe that will mellow you out and melt you into your couch. His low-key chill out music seductively floats around the room, luring anyone within an earshot into eargasm. His SoundCloud page sits with thousands of listens and comments from his active and ever growing fan-base.
In 2016 he released his debut EP, DReAMS, available on BandCamp for purchase. The title track taking you to the beach, seagulls and waves crashing in the background while Adam nonchalantly slaps his guitar.
Luís Trindade – https://luistrindade.bandcamp.com
A wonderfully melancholic resonance underpins Luís Trindade’s method as he murmurs heartfelt words alongside the ebb and flow of his rhythmic style of guitar playing. An unsigned artist producing his own music, Luís only has music that exists in the digital realm, however as he garners an impressive following on all of the music social platforms, it is probable he will become more eminent as his practice of beautiful, simple and meaningful continues. Be sure to check out his latest offerings, titled “2017 – Give Me New Colors to See – Demos” Available on SoundCloud.
Sam Carmody –https://soundcloud.com/samcarmodymusic
Sam has been releasing quietly impressive music on his Soundcloud account for a while now, music that has evidently evolved over time, from guitar heavy indie-rock to a more modern take on the genre seen in his first offering from the upcoming EP “War Artist”, named “Moby Dick”. Taking us down a more layered, vocally enchanting path, it will be interesting to see what else the WAM-award winning songwriter will have to offer in subsequent releases.
“A really special songwriter” – Lachie Macara, Triple J
“Sam Carmody is a real literary talent, with an artist’s inquiring mind and a natural feel for the beauty and toughness of language” – Charlotte Wood, author of the award-winning The Natural Way of Things
