Claire Brooks – Slowly Towards the Door

I felt like kicking back even if the temperatures are dropping according to LA’s Claire Brooks but she is operating in a Cat Power ‘Sea of Love’ kind of aura so it is hard to feel anything other than a warm generosity of spirit. It’s all wrapped up in 90 seconds but ‘Slowly Towards The Door’ leaves a subtle mark and we need little folk ditties like this to offer a stability and an illustration that life in the slow lane every now and then is the best medicine.

Bee Bran – Yellow Like Warning

Who is in the market for the slow and considered? The keys early doors set the mood but it is Londoner Bee Bran’s performance that really leaves a mark. The words are delivered in a spoken word like manner but ‘Yellow Like Warning’ could form the fulcrum of a stage musical at the same time. Enjoying every second was a bit of a surprise normally in the face of such showy expressions but that is the genius of an act who gets us glued to every syllable. There is rebellion at play but more importantly an alt pop presentation with all the wonderful trimmings. Remarkable stuff, a burgeoning force t ..read more

Ann Frances – No One Wants You (You’ve Slept With Too Many Men)

Crikey that sure is telling us how it is and no better artist in that regard because Chicago’s Ann Frances has a direct approach, one that is peppered with a jaunty quality and by extension a likeable nature so that we are invested in these minutes. Of course that comes from having a personality that is hip and persuasive so when all that is combined with a tune that is truly singalong so you get an anthem of sorts and one that sends us on our merry way. Wry and perceptive stuff and genuine indication of the talent we are dealing with here. KH mp3hugger’s best new music in our Fresh Indie pl ..read more

Margot & the Midnight Tenants – Dust in Space

We all need a bit of magic in our lives and today’s quotient comes courtesy of this Brooklyn troupe on their wondrous ‘Dust in Space’. Every step of the way is filled with fantasy, sparkling electro pulses and of course a singer who is high on life and most probably high above the clouds with a view of the big picture. And she bestows that insight upon the rest of us on a track that gathers a head of steam so that come the end it feels like we’ve been awarded our own personal supply of rocket fuel. Uplifting stuff from Margot Bennett and band. KH Dust in Space by Margot & the Midnight Ten ..read more

Pearl Charles – Smoke In The Limousine

The mood is set to evening romance, a singer who lavishes amid a big orchestral backdrop and it would take a hard heart not to taken by the allure of ‘Smoke in the Limousine’. And I know it is a big call but I heard the Carpenters(and the lesser known but equally cherishable Broadcast) in Pearl Charles song, sepia-tinged love song with all the trimmings and done in a manner that has us suspending disbelief that we’ll soon in be within reach of happy ever after. Sumptuous stuff – there will be tears and the odd celebration along the way too. KH Smoke In The Limousine by Pearl Charles mp3hugger ..read more

Camille Schmidt – Red and Blue

There is quietness, there is beauty and there is a resignation to ‘Red and Blue’ that is rare so we believe every syllable that comes out of the Brookyn act Camille Schmidt. There are lessons in there too, delivered in tones that is sympathetic but with an undeniable lift towards a mood of near celebration. Reminds me a lot of Allo Darlin’ who were headed up by Elizabeth Morris. Short and ever so sweet and taken from Camille’s debut EP ‘Good Person’.

Mindy Gledhill – Pleased To Meet You

There’s a loneliness there from Mindy Gledhill, the sparseness of the playing and her vocals meaning that we feel like we’re in the midst of a song that could find favour in the gentler month of December and the adverts that are requiring of a tender soundtrack. It reminded me of ‘Somewhere Only We Know’ by Lily Allen, that heartfelt paean to (self) love evoked here and done with such subtlety. ‘Please To Meet Me’ creeps up on you, a charming build with all the orchestral trimmings you’d expect of a production with designs on sweeping all and sundry off their feet.

Robert Ascroft – Faded Photograph (feat. Ruth Radelet)

So well named for there is a melancholy but some radiance to the aura around this track, sepia tinged and tear stained in equal measure so it is no surprise that Chromatics singer Ruth Radelet has a languid soulful style. You’ll hear the Beach House reference and for me some of the Late Cord and Low because ‘Faded Photograph’ exhibits a slowcore quality. Little by little the track changes the mood of the room, the stunning arrangements from the multi-talented Ascroft not sidelined in the least in the presence of a true chanteuse and the combination makes for awe-inspiring listen.

Zoe Stroupe – Colorado Bruise

Such a low-ebbed effort, one that harks back to another folk time so ‘Colorado Bruise’ has an effortlessness that truly comes into its own at the chorus. This is an arrangement like the dawn chorus because it has such an organic set of traits and it reminded of the Cranberries and the Sundays at once. Zoe Stroupe is capable of holding our fears and worries at bay for a few minutes and that is a potent tenderness to be able to wield. KH mp3hugger’s best new music in our Fresh Indie playlist!

Leyya – Ease My Mind

A bit different, dreamy textures and a gentle build that is suggestive of a beating heart beyond the pale. Yep ‘Ease My Mind’ appears to have the same plan in place for lots of other minds and we’ll taken in this chaotic world of ours. Austria’s Leyya (Sophie Lindinger and Marco Kleebauer) have a pop inclination but they do so under their own internal guidance so ‘Ease My Mind’ feels invigorating, careful not to tread on toes but instead massage them back gently into life. Take once daily to feel that inevitable positive uplift. KH mp3hugger’s best new music in our Fresh Indie playlist! More ..read more
