‘Andy Warhol’ by David Bowie

(Sunday Salad #24)

Follow-ups, flashbacks, rarities & oddities

Sunday SaladThis is the second song I received from TRAILS AND WAYS. I still don’t know for sure if their music belongs to the singer-songwriter category, although I define the term rather loosely. But I trust they know what they are doing when they click “Share Track”. They certainly do when they make music.

A beautifully sincere (or sincerely beautiful) voice, Angus Stone. (via Troysnoiseread more »

The Zolas

The ZolasThe Zolas already gave the world one great novelist (that was Émile), now two younger members of the family are trying their luck as musicians. We’ll see, but this rather minimalist, “postmodern” pop sounds more than promising.

According to their Facebook page bio, Zachary Gray is the main songwriter of the duo, but that’s really only a guess, because the text is quite ambiguous. It reads like this:

Interview with Bryyn

BryynEx-expat singer-songwriter Bryyn released his new album ‘In Shapes‘ on October 16. It’s a collection of ten original, somewhat unusual songs that piqued my interest, because I suspected an intriguing and thoughtful person behind them. So, I asked Bryyn a few questions, and he didn’t disappoint me with his answers.

Most of the songs on ‘In Shapes’ were already featured on ‘House Plants’, that was published by Aaahh Records. What’s the reason for making a new album out of old songs that were already released under cc license? read more »

Low Leaf

Low LeafJudging only by her photos, Low Leaf may seem superficial with all those awkward poses she likes to strike. It’s rather childish, actually. But I guess it’s a thing that should not be taken too seriously. After all, it’s her music what matters.

And it’s quite enchanting. The very special music of Low Leaf is rooted in jazz, and watered with the sound effects of electronica. The end result is a controlled chaos where almost every little bit of sound is treated in a unique and creative way.  read more »

Classic track:
‘Little Red Corvette’ by Prince

Little Red CorvetteHis occasional tastelessness and annoying eccentricity aside, Prince’s ‘Little Red Corvette’ is one of the best songs from the 80s.
