Sneakout – https://www.youtube.com/sneakoutmusic
Learning one instrument is hard, but I can’t even imagine the work load of multi-instrumentalist Bobby Fleming. The writer, performer, producer and recorder of Sneakout music targets the rebels and rule breakers among us all with a crisp and psychedelic new wave style of rock. Infectious and energetic, Bobby’s music has found me tapping a foot and bobbing a head. At the same time.
Land of Trees – https://open.spotify.com/artist/4Jew7xYlCjBxm0BLAcRdIn
Land of Trees are an indie-folk band from Sweden drawing inspiration from mother nature and artists the likes of Ben Howard, Passenger and Mumford and Sons. The softly spoken three piece consists of Marcus, Daniel and Pontus who write enjoyable and melodic songs using stalwart folk instruments like the acoustic guitar, banjo and harmonica. Have a listen in the embedded SoundCloud player and don’t forget to follow these guys for more sweet original music.
Seafoam Sweater Girl – https://soundcloud.com/seafoamsweater…
Beautifully raw, Seafoam Sweater Girl records her songs lo-fi and in one take. Despite no professional quality recordings, she manages to create lovely guitar sing alongs which we just love to listen to. Honestly I think the lo-fi and raw quality of this music only adds to its charm and represents a style that tends to be lacking in indie-folk recordings. Especially from artists that still sound great no matter what medium they record with.
Old Sea Brigade – https://www.facebook.com/oldseabrigade
Creative music to help clear external distractions and invigorate introspection, Ben Cramer constructs gorgeously intimate folk-rock. Dusky vocals characterise each well crafted song while undemanding and mastered guitar tones float softly amidst the beat of a pulsing drum. Old Sea Brigade have recently released the EP ‘Wash Me Away’ which is definitely worth a listen or ten.
We hope you enjoyed this weeks cherry-picked selection of brilliant new music, sent to us direct from new artists world-wide. Without their special musical contribution the SLV videos would be lacking the good vibes that we currently enjoy placing into each hand crafted episode. Please don’t forget to follow the links to their pages and help us spread the word! All it takes is a like, a follow and a share. Let us know what you think in the comment section, we would love to hear from you guys!
Until next week,
Thank you for another great playlist. Thank you for the references.
You guys rock!
Oh yes – even an ol fella like me loves your picks, Seafoam, love her trax, Sneakout, good to work with music.
