Mugison

Came across this cool, made in mid 2009, raw video of the Icelandic musician and singer known as Mugison, while he was on his 5 boroughs in 1 day tour performing his song entitled I Want You. The performance was filmed live by film maker Scott Fine inside the Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art in Staten Island, New York, in front of a small group.

Gaby Moreno w/ Ricardo Arjona - Fuiste tú

Gaby became one of my favorite indie artists out there, since the moment I noticed her in 2006. I've come to admire her greatly since then. She has the right attitude in how she has worked to get her music out there, play lots of shows... she has a consistent vibe, very relaxed. She has integrity. Always making something, working on new songs, playing with new people, traveling to far away places to perform and tour... WOW... She is destined for superstardom on this path she is on, I have a feeling, but superstardom isn't her trip. She is just a lover of blues music, tranquility style life with a solid work to live rather than a live to work ethic. I realize things are not always what they appear to be, but that's the feeling I get from Gaby Moreno. Her Peace of Mind radiates. That's the most important thing one can have, in my humble opinion. That's why I think Gaby Moreno is destined for so much more success than she has already achieved in creating a self-sustaining working band and music career as a recording artist, songwriter other artists, with several film & TV on the music side, collaborator with many and touring artist.

Here is just one more collaboration of Gaby's.

I don't love the song above, but I love what Gaby brought to the table. I am a little bit biased toward Gaby. Her very own music is most delightful.

Count Fleet

Came across music video producer Elliot Glass on YouTube a while back and immediately loved his films of LA indie bands shot in what seems to be various living rooms. He has amassed many of great recordings. His crews at his company, Little Videos, records the sound beautifully and the photography/video work is pretty darned good and always fits.

In this recording of the band, Count Fleet, Glass credits Jonathan O'Brien at Red Rockets Glare in Los Angeles for the recording. It was xixed by Raymond Richards and filmed by Scott Oshiro and Dave Smallen

Enjoy!

Ruby Jane

The young teen songwriter, performer and recording artist, Ruby Smith has this great little Americana sound. Fiddles, slide guitar and her voice merge bluesy country and bluegrass. Sometimes feel like Ruby Jane is playing in a similar vein with CocoRosie.

Sandhy Sondoro - Indo Citizen of the World

In 2007, first heard this wonderful Indonesian artist Sandhy Sondoro from Jakarta. He has a soulful edge that grabbed me the moment I heard it. He has bits of Joe Cocker, Michael McDonald and John Mellencamp inside of him. But, Sandhy is all original.

I like the way Sandhy sits down on the stool and delivers this kind of sweet sound. Super positive vibes and energy flow out of this guy.

Sandhy Sondoro - Superstar

The Samples

The Samples is a band of real musicians with way cool songs that groove. None of the recordings sound "produced". Every song is low-fi or no-fi. But there is a quality of authenticity and consistency that is special.

The Samples - When It's Raining


This video is contains audio from underproduced concert footage from 1988 - but through the low fi recording is a great band that jams hard.



The two songs below reminds me of a burrito rolled up with some Peter Gabriel, Neil Young, Paul Simon and The Police mixed in. But it's all original. These guys jam their tails off.
(audio on next two videos not so hot of a signal - please turn up volume to capture it)

The Samples - Summertime" (LIVE at Mile High Music Festival - Commerce City, Colorado 8/14/10)
