Daenjellson –  Walk Your Soft Skin on the Edges
Mellow indie pop. Soft vocals, slightly arts’y production, yet well grounded acoustic pop.
Tobias Borelius –  Du känner mig för väl, farväl
Swedish indie pop. Vocal vocals, acoustic and slightly synthy sound.
melodysheep –  Symphony of Science Collector’s Edition
Scientific ear-candy. Musical blend of talks about everything from biology to cosmology with upbeat electronica.
Marco Mestichella –  Fragments Of Light
Echoes of pop grandeur. 80’s synth-pop sends best wishes to a fresh take in the new millenium.
GRENADE SURROUND Experience –  Свободнее Птиц
Post-rock jazz vibes. Musical equivalent of a good, strong red wine. Becomes better the more you taste it.
Bralitz –  Bralitz
Beach folk grandeur. Sounds a bit like Newton Faulkner. Vocal guitar folky pop, with violin strings for effect. If you are more into “self-made” sounding music rather than overproduced electro-pop, you’ll very much like this small EP, published at blocSonic in their maxBlocs release cycle.
Eva & Manu –  Still Traveling EP
Acoustic vocal indie pop. This gem from French-Finish duo Eva & Manu has unfortunately been de-published by the creators from the original sources, but the archive.org mirror is still up. And thanks to the nature of Creative Commons license, I can be sure that it remains legal to download the original EP. Four songs long, […]
Frau –  Starlit Carousel
Soft Vocal acoustic pop, slightly eccentric. Piano and voice are the weapons of choice of Indonesian artist Frau. From scarce notes and harmonies, a strange magic unfolds that reminds of old and traditional songs, though being contemporary compositions. The lyrics speak today’s language and tell beautiful stories. My two picks – as usual – after […]
The Dada Weatherman –  The Green Waltz
Tender vocals, acoustic guitar. Dada is a talented musician from Paris, gifted with a great voice and sense for the right chords. Equipped with piano, acoustic guitar and occasional percussion, he sings his way through 15 tracks. It seems that he calls himself now Dada & the Weathermen, has released three more acoustic albums on […]
Fall Walk Run –  Throwing It All Away
Exceptional acoustic pop from UK. This is Fall Walk Run in a nutshell. Voice, acoustic guitar and some percussion are all this talented artist needs to capture my attention.
Botany Bay –  Grounded
Botany Bay make simple emotional pop music with influences from many genres. The common theme among their various releases are rich instrumentation, female vocals and good arrangements. This album from 2007 was released at Jamendo. The band caught my attention by their contribution to the compilation Freeloaded (play on freemusi.cc), issued by Musikpiration once a […]
The Nuri –  Music Box
Nightwish without fairy dust. Hard, epic rock with strong yet soft female vocals. Slower and faster songs have their place in this 16 track album. Both rhythm and melody excel in all of the songs. It was harder than usual to select only two songs to present here.
