I love Polaroid

Tuesday, May 13th, 2008

I stumbled across this litte Parisien group called Polaroid some time ago and immediately fell in love with their relaxing acoustic music. “I Think I love you” sounds easily like it could have been on the Juno soundtrack, utilizing a ukulele and that male vs. female verse trade off that comes off more like fun [...]

Andreya Triana

Monday, April 21st, 2008

Ever since hearing Andreya Triana on Flying Lotus’ “Tea Leaf Dancers”, I have been unable to stop listening to her. Floating in that gray area in between musical genres Andreya always keeps me guessing on what she will bring to the table next. Here is a recent interview I had with her…. Q: When did [...]

Rubies

Friday, April 11th, 2008

So I like to think of Rubies as honarary Swedes…and you already know my affinity for the Swedes and their music. Signed to Tellé records in the Norway, these Cali girls recorded part of their folky-electro-pop album in Sweden and do a majority of their tours there as well. Their debut album “Explode from the [...]

The Submarines

Sunday, March 23rd, 2008

I first stumbled across The Submarines CD “Declare A New State” in the discounted section at Amoeba Records a couple years ago. It was a great little indie/electro, very down-tempo kind of CD. However their new album, “Honeysuckle Weeks” due out May 13th, is a great departure from their previous release and provides us with [...]

The Little Ones

Wednesday, February 20th, 2008

Today has been a little strange…I went to a museum in Neuchatel, and I saw the little Jaquet-Droz robot/dolls from the 1700’s. They were really creepy, but it was exciting to see what they could do. They could draw, write notes, and even play the piano. I guess that is why I’m posting the new [...]

The Dø do France

Monday, February 18th, 2008

Currently getting serious play on my iPod right now is a group called The Dø, hailing from both Paris and Helsinki, they have been getting some pretty good airtime here in Switzerland and in France. Oh, and it is pronounced “d-o-h” as in the first and last note on the musical scale, or for those [...]

The Dodos: ‘Visitor’ March 18th

Saturday, February 9th, 2008

San Francisico band The Dodos sophomore album is being released via French Kiss Records, and is already picking up some good publicity. With appearances all over the country including SXSW, I’m sure we will be hearing more of them in the months to come. I have yet to see them live, but have heard that [...]

Super Swedes: Kissey Asplund and Hello Saferide

Friday, February 1st, 2008

Kissey Asplund is a Swedish born singer who boast funky electronic tracks with a touch of soul and jazz. Her album “Plethora” should be released sometime early next year on R2 Records. Hello Saferide, who features previously posted Maia Hirasawa, is an indie folk band that makes quirky songs that would mesh perfectly with the [...]

Yael Naim takes a bite out of Apple

Wednesday, January 30th, 2008

About two months ago while in Croatia I saw a video for a catchy little pop ditty, but had no way of finding out who the artist was. Fast forward about a month later back in Switzerland and I hear the song on the radio. This time I was at least able to use the [...]
