over the rhine

As weather gets colder I tend to curl inward and spend most of my time indoors painting or reading. Fall’s been falling pretty gently here in Northern California and when rain comes down, I get pensive and moody and gravitate towards pensive and moody things. Lately I’ve discovered Ohio’s indie folk married duo Over the […]

memoirs at the end of the world

I’ve fallen for Florida’s luscious little indie pop band The Postmarks. Their newest album, Memoirs at the End of the World, is part Spaghetti Western, part spy intrigue film soundtrack, and all fun. Take a listen for yourself.

spangle call lilli line

大好きな下北沢から素晴らしいバンドSpangle call Lilli line を見つけ出すv (ちょっちょっと変なバンド名だけど(汗)) シンガーはイラストレーター。ギタリストはフォトグラファー。他のギタリストはグラフィックデザイナー。面白いね!!!日本に住んでる時、このバンド知らなかった。残念ですね。このような美しい音楽を聞いているのはとても面白いし、リラックスする。ライブに行ければ幸せ者だな・・・ I’ve fallen pretty hard for this amazing little band, Spangle call Lilli line. Hailing from Shimokitazawa, one of my very favourite corners of Tokyo, this indie rock band is a blend of lush ambient downtempo rock, electronica, hauntingly surreal lyrics, and beautifully delicate, layered vocals. The band is made […]
