Mr. Jukes - Animated Music Video - music by Grant Green ft. Charles Bradley

The-Indies presents the animated music video by Mr. Jukes mixing Grant Green and Charles Bradley

The Indies Network would like to give more tribute to the late great soul singer Charles Bradley with a song he recorded for Mr. Jukes' debut album titled God First. Charles Bradley passed away on September 23, 2017, just months after Mr. Jukes album was released.

Just below is the animated music video to Track #5 titled Grant Green, which is a mix of samples from jazz guitar great Grant Green's recording of the James Brown penned song titled Ain't It Funky Now. Mr. Jukes brought in Charles Bradley to sing atop his mix and the result is awesome and something that both Grant Green and James Brown would love.

This stellar music video and animation was produced by Strange Beast and was directed Anna Ginsburg and Parallel Teeth.

Marshmello ft. Khalid - Silence (Official Lyric Video)

Lyrics to Silence by Marshmello and Khalid
Yeah, I'd rather be a lover than a fighter
'Cause all my life, I've been fighting
Never felt a feeling of comfort
All this time, I've been hiding
And I never had someone to call my own, oh nah
I'm so used to sharing
Love only left me alone
But I'm at one with the silence
I found peace in your violence
Can't tell me there's no point in trying
I'm at one, and I've been quiet for too long
I found peace in your violence
Can't tell me there's no point in trying
I'm at one, and I've been silent for too long
I've been quiet for too long
I've been quiet for too long
I found peace in your violence
Can't tell me there's no point in trying
I'm at one, and I've been quiet for too long
I'm in need of a savior, but I'm not asking for favors
My whole life, I've felt like a burden
I think too much, and I hate it
I'm so used to being in the wrong, I'm tired of caring
Loving never gave me a home, so I'll sit here in the silence
I found peace in your violence
Can't tell me there's no point in trying
I'm at one, and I've been quiet for too long
I found peace in your violence
Can't tell me there's no point in trying
I'm at one, and I've been silent for too long
I've been quiet for too long
I've been quiet for too long
I found peace in your violence
Can't tell me there's no point in trying
I'm at one, and I've been quiet for too long

Welcome to Wonderland Simbi
Trust in your intuition

What a wizard I am, bitch I'm the man
Don't be scared give me your hand
Take you to Wonderland
Man this really ain't in the plan, but fuck all your plans
Let's go
(Come here)

Wolves howl and any hour cross 'em, and they'll devour you in a second
Better mind how you walk through
Making it out alive is something to hope to
On my life there's wonder and terror and beauty and danger
Independent here on my own still doing it major
Here you cannot be on the phone so do me a favour
W-w-wait, slow down
Rabbit holes where it goes down
Do not interrupt the flow now
Look at me
Eyes peeled, know that you're gonna be healed
I've been down in nitty-gritty and stayed in the Hills
I've been all over the world now but never to chill
Been exposed to finer things and Italian meals
What a change

Wonderland is amazing, ain't it? (Ain't it?)
Been partying for days on the same shit (Same shit)
Never mind who I came with
Man I never ever want to leave, let me stay lit
Let me stay

I know you're quite the dreamer
Be careful, this could end up being your reality

What a wizard I am, bitch I'm the man
Don't be scared give me your hand
Take you to Wonderland
Man this really ain't in the plan, but fuck all your plans
Let's go

Wonderland is amazing, ain't it?
Never ever want to leave, let me stay lit
I've been partying for days on the same shit
Never mind never mind who I came with

Picture perfect, ain't picture perfect
Colours of the images are inverted
All for a purpose, I say this shit loud and clear for you all I know you heard it
I know you learning ways of this place and you show your concerns
And I understand how you feel, but fuck how you feel
You can only eat if you hunt and are you willing to kill
Mercy is never shown and damn it, it's all I've known
Remember to pay your debts, this shit is some Game of Thrones
All I wanna know is right now is you with me?
Come fuck with me here there's no love for you in the city
I can show you magic I swear this shit is so trippy
Only you can have it let's make a deal quick
On some real shit
All it takes is for you to hear and to feel this

What a wizard I am, bitch I'm the man
Don't be scared give me your hand
Take you to Wonderland
Man this really ain't in the plan, but fuck all your plans
Let's go

Wonderland is amazing, ain't it?
Never ever want to leave, let me stay lit
I've been partying for days on the same shit
Never mind, never mind who I came with
Eat, hunt, kill
Wonderland is amazing, ain't it?
Never ever want to leave, let me stay lit
I've been partying for days on the same shit
Never mind, never mind who I came with

Idyl - Music Video covering Aaliyah's "Try Again"

The Indies presents Idyl and her music video to her interpretation of the Aaliyah song titled Try Again

The Indies generally steers clear of featuring cover songs, but this is a worthy exception. A emerging French artist known as Idyl did a tasty acoustic version of "Try Again", a song that was originally released by the recording artist Aaliyah on February 22, 2000, less than two years before she tragically died at age 22, exactly 16 years ago today on August 25, 2001.

The song was written by Static Major (R.I.P.) and Timothy Mosley (known professionally as Timbaland). The song was produced for Aaliyah by Timbaland, who also appeared in the video. Aaliyah's version of "Try Again" reached number one on several radio airplay and sales charts, including #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. There have been numerous artists who have covered the song since that time.

The music video to the interpretation below, by Idyl, was executive produced by Shimera Films, directed by Jali with Julien Cherpion as Cinematographer.

Fans of Aaliyah have never forgotten her and have propelled her to new heights since her death. She is listed by Billboard magazine as the tenth most successful female R&B artist of the past 25 years and 27th most successful R&B artist in history. She will be forever missed, and her music never forgotten.

Private Party - Gloom

The Indies presents Private Party and their music video for their track titled Gloom

Private Party is a rap act that consists of two guys who have known each other since the fourth grade. They figured out, when they were young, that music was everything that mattered. They finally packed their bags for Los Angeles, California, to pursue their desire to make records. Their rap in the track below is about the difficulties of pursuing such dreams, the harshness things like fake friends who talk badly behind one's back and takers who don't want to give back. Those are human traits that are all too common in the world, but the idea is to leave the negative forces behind and stick to the plan.

The video was directed by Shoots Blayr, shot by Chyeahhh and produced by Goldy.

Rebecca Lou - No Surrender

TheIndies.Com presents rock vocalist Rebecca Lou and her music video to No Surrender

Rebecca Lou Armstrong of Copenhagen, Denmark, is a great hard rock singer who is simply known as Rebecca Lou. She is one of this network's all time favorite emerging indie artists who is destined for something big in our opinion. She has been at it for quite a while, singing in several different mostly very hard rock/metal bands. In 2013 she was featured here on The Indies when she was the lead singer of a stellar band known as Stella Blackrose.

We have heard her sing in a few different situations/bands/acts and she can take a lame band or song, a bad situation or wrong kind of production and squeeze a great sound out of it the second she starts singing. She treats all music situations we've heard like that old saying... If life gives you lemons, make lemonade. That makes her a real pro.

The thing that is inspiring about her is that she is not trying to fit into other people's mold of what they think she should be. She is comfortable in her own skin and exudes an authenticism and confidence that is rare. Years ago, I wrote her a note encouraging her to stay away from pop music, which she had been experimenting with for a pop idol show in Europe. I wrote to her and stated that rock stars have contempt and pop stars don't, and that I thought she should stick to rock. I felt like she was a rock star in the making up to that moment and going down the pop road, she would throw it all away. She wrote back to basically say "I am what I am" and that she was "having fun". Her response left me with much more respect for her than I already had.

Hearing her most recent original solo material gives us hope that she might very well emerge as a very successful real rock icon, hopefully like a modern day Joan Jett meets Ann Wilson of Heart. Rebecca Lou has a lot of passion, always has a strong delivery and as she appropriately titled this song, she has no surrender in mind. Turn it up and give her some love! GC

Survival Sex - The Film - Independent Director Seeks Support

The Indies presents Ukachi Arinzeh

It is rare for this network to plug or endorse any crowdfunding campaigns, but the network of music websites that The Indies belongs to has a favorite recording artist of substance named Nneka. Her music is deep and so are the things she does. She is focused on important issues, and those issues that matter to her are woven into her songs.

Today, we proudly share this plug she made for a filmmaker named Ukachi Arinzeh who is raising funds to finish a film about homeless kids who very unfortunately turn to sex for survival. The film is titled "Survival Sex". True to Nneka's persistent activist spirit, she wrote the following to her friends on Facebook:
Please help support the making of this film, Survival Sex. Working towards changing the problem of homeless teenagers on the streets of Nigeria, Africa and the world. #theropefoundation #survivalsex

Please help to donate in any way you can. We appreciate it.
Just below is a short video of Ukachi Arinzeh describing his film making a direct pitch to potential sponsors on GoFundMe.Com where he hopes to raise $25,000 to complete this worthwhile film making project. Learn more, donate or see how much has been raised so far at Ukachi's GoFund Me page. The fundraising campaign lasts until February 28th. Proceeds will pay for principle photography in March in time to make film festival submission deadlines starting in May.

Here is the audio to the Nneka song titled Street Lack Love



Lyrics to Nneka's song titled Street Lack Love:
This goes out to you people in the streets
Know it is not easy to survive in this world
Where there is no love, where there is no heart
The things we say, we are, we can never be

You find yourself wandering why
Youre sitting in the darkness
Cant find the light in this world
And as we grow old we might understand the truth
The fear of knowing it all
See places where well be,
We never thought we would see

This goes out to you people in the streets
Know it is not easy to survive in this world
Where there is no love, where there is no heart
The things we say, we are, we can never be

You will see we want the things we never have
Continuously dreaming, yeah
I know as long as we believe, we can get outta this
Together well achieve
And sometimes they wanna see your down fall
Think of their own profits and make you misuse
Your fellow brothers and sisters, your family, your friends
We just dont know what to do

This goes out to you people in the streets
Know it is not easy to survive in this world
Where there is no love, where there is no heart
The things we say, we are, we can never be

For nearly 60 years in Nigeria,
People have been suffering from gas flaring, and pollution
Because of big oil extraction companies such as Shell, Chevron, NNPC.
The Niger Delta, the Warri and the Ogoni people have pleading for a change
They have been fighting fot justice,
But the companies, Europe and Nigerian government do not seem to care,
Do not seem to be bothered, they cant be bothered.

Kayla Briët - Inspired story teller, cinematographer, composer and ...

TheIndies.Com presents cinematographer Kayla Briët and her film titled Smoke That Travels

We got lucky and learned about Kayla Briët, a very inspired 19 year old story teller, historian, film maker and composer/arranger/musician when she was featured on the cover of the LA Weekly, in Los Angeles, California.She was part of a feature story by writer Dina Gilio-Whitaker that was titled "NATIVE ANGELENOS - L.A.'S INDIGENOUS CULTURES WERE ALMOST ERASED - NOW THEY'RE FIGHTING TO BE SEEN"

It led us to a short 13 minute cinematic piece Kayla directed, edited and scored original music to. The film is titled Smoke That Travels. It features her father, Gary Wiskigeamatyuk.

Her YouTube page said the following about the film:
"Smoke That Travels" is a personal documentary by Kayla Briët that explores preservation and loss of culture and her own identity as Prairie Band Potawatomi.

What happens when a story is forgotten?

What a long journey it's been. This film was originally intended to be a small time capsule of my thoughts, feelings, and fears of stories being lost in time. It’s a piece dedicated to my little (currently 3 year old) brother, Senachwine, and a reminder for myself to look back on in the future. I started this last summer at 18, and little did I know that this film would take me on a journey and bring me closer to so many people around the world. Over 30 festivals and screenings from the Americas and Europe to Africa and Australia. I feel so lucky being able to meet new artists, family, and friends and experience treasured moments, big and small — it feels like a dream. Releasing this out into the world is a moment I will never forget, so here goes. Thank you so much to all who have supported this film so far.

with love x
Miigwech,
Kayla
We really hope you are inspired by Kayla Briët's work as a director/documentarian. As mentioned above, she wrote and performed the music for this film too. She has a musical body of work that is growing and we will be featuring more of that in future posts on this network. Enjoy! GC

10 year old autistic girl, Kaylee Rogers, nails Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah

The Indies presents Kaylee Rogers singing Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah

Nobody ever said autistic girls cannot become music stars. Wish we had posted this in time for Christmas, but the story is worthy of a post holiday plug.

A 10 year old autistic girl named Kaylee Rogers sang lead vocals to Leonard Cohen's song titled Hallelujah, backed up by the a school choir of other kids from the special needs school they all attend with each other in Northern Ireland called Killard House. Billy McAuley filmed the event and posted it to his Facebook page and it went viral, and still is. Enjoy! GC
