Mike Bauer - Mother of Exiles (Music Video)

Mike Bauer music video for song Mother of Exiles on The Indies at TheIndies.Com

The Indies is not featuring this music video to celebrate a particular political position. Our team is often split down the middle on a great many political, humanitarian and social issues. GC is is for one thing, I like it a different way and our friends and associates are often split as well. We get along great, regardless, because we respect each other's opinion enough to listen and consider our unique lives that got us where we each are.

The post of this music video is a celebration of a very talented recording artist who used his art to attempt to put forth his idea in a different light than other people may see it.

With that said, The Indies is proud to present an exceptional independent recording artist with a dynamic voice named Matt Bauer. This music video to his song titled Mother of Exiles was co-written by Adam Berg. The video was directed by Brian Kim. Enjoy! MLV

Lyrics for Little Simz - Poison Ivy

[Verse 1: Little Simz]
This is toxic I know
We ain't doing ourselves any good
We ain't doing ourselves any favours
We'll forever be I wish we could
I'll forever be misunderstood
This is toxic I know
Cut it off from now, man I should
Tell you that I'm out, man I should
Got me so attached and I hate it
Something on your chest, you should say it
Don't you know there's rules to the game
Better learn the game 'fore you play it

[Pre-Hook: Little Simz]
This is toxic I know
But I'm on the edge, don't push me now
Don't let me down

[Hook: Tilla]
You're bad for me
Poison Ivy
All I ask is from you
Show me love, show me now
Show me love, show me now
Show me love, show me now
Show me love, show me now
But you, let me go, let me down

[Verse 2:Little Simz]
Maybe this is all in my in my head
Now I got your thoughts in my head
Tryna' give you mine though instead
Don't be so indecisive oh he said
Go with the flow and vibe is what he said
Be gentle with my heart is yeah I say
Then we fuss and fight oh we bled
Don't be so insecure, oh he says
I'll be yours for sure, oh he says
Make me a better person I will say
In your eyes all I see is red

[Pre-Hook: Little Simz]
This is toxic I know
But I'm on the edge, don't push me now
But don't let me down

[Hook: Tilla]
You're bad for me
Poison Ivy
All I ask is from you
Show me love, show me now
Show me love, show me now
Show me love, show me now
Show me love, show me now
Won't you

[Verse 3: Little Simz]
Got me up and down and you know it's long
I can always tell when there's something wrong
Ain't no telling what dimension you are from
We will never know if you and I belong
Got me hella weak, I can barely speak
I need a release, can I hit the bong
Ain't no telling what dimension you are from
We will never know if you and I belong

[Hook: Tilla]
Show me love, show me now
Show me love, show me now
Show me love, show me now
Show me love, show me now
But you, let me go, let me down

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.

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.

Little Dragon - latest videos from Season High album

The Indies presents the latess music videos by Little Dragon and their album, Season High

The first time we covered this act from Gothenburg, Sweden, goes back to 2007, when they were truly indie on a label known as Peacefrog. Since then, numerous emerging and well established acts now cover Little Dragon's songs, such as the stellar version of Twice covered by Lianne La Havas.

Fast forward to today, the group is a major indie force, playing all over the world  (click here for dates) and is currently signed to the newish label that former Warner Bros. Records CEO Tom Whalley started known as Loma Vista Recordings. Loma Vista has a roster of acts that are very independent in spirit.

The Indies is proud to present the latest two music videos by Little Dragon from their latest 2017 album titled Season High.  The first music video below is the album's #2 track titled High.

Little Dragon - High

The next video below is the album's #1 track titled Celebrate. It was Directed by Ossian Melin, the DP was Filip Aladdin and the first assistant director was Klas Hasselrot.

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
