Bed Intruder Song by The Gregory Brothers

Bed Intruder Song by The Gregory Brothers

I know, I know, this went viral a few weeks ago - still, it's a video that begs to be posted. What's great about this video, is not that it's particularly hilarious (especially to people who aren't new to Autotune the News) but that it's incredibly catchy. After I got...

High School Crushes and Unrequited Love

High School Crushes and Unrequited Love

It's List Addicts Friday time - and today's topic is high school crushes and unrequited love. Why? Just because I'm in the mood for it and these two always go together. High school has always been a memorable time for me - not because of the nice memories I've shared...

Piano smashing goodness from Dani Rosenoer

Dani from Everyone's Talking sent this in, with the promise of posting my blog to their 50,000 followers. I thought, sure, and started contemplating on why, for the life me, have I not gotten 50,000 followers in the past three years that this blog has been alive. Then...

Some Sweet Treats for Your Ears

This will be the first time in months that I'll be doing Fresh from the Post without the usual Q and A - mostly because of the sudden shift in the force and my midichlorian count hitting an all time low (in other words, life got in the way and I haven't had the time...

A Couple of Songs from the Levi’s Pioneer Sessions

A Couple of Songs from the Levi’s Pioneer Sessions

Watching Inception last weekend blew my mind off, especially with Joe Gordon-Levitt's zero gravity action sequence. Yet it also reminded me that the last film I saw Leonardo diCaprio in was Romeo + Juliet. It made me feel old knowing that the once Tiger Beat fodder,...

Her Morning Elegance by Oren Lavie

Her Morning Elegance by Oren Lavie

This video goes a year back in 2009 for Oren Lavie's single 'Her Morning Elegance'. Since everything's going stop motion nowadays, I thought I'd show it to you guys if you happened to miss it from last year. It's not as elaborate as Coldplay's 'Strawberry Swing'...

I Miss You, Like the Deserts Miss the Rain

I Miss You, Like the Deserts Miss the Rain

This isn't an EBTG post, sorry to disappoint, though it was that song that inspired me to make up this week's list. As an alumni of the Long Distance Relationships club, I have compiled many-a-song to my list of tunes to soothe the weary heart. A particular song that...

The Cover Edition

The Cover Edition

It's been a while, so I thought I shouldn't put this off any further. Yes, it's List Addicts Fridays once again, and today's theme is 'covers'. In the history of List Addicts, I have never made a covers post before, mainly because a lot of other blogs do. They even...

Free Tracks from Ten Free Albums

Free Tracks from Ten Free Albums

It's a little bit too early for a Lyric of the Day recap and too soon for an album art post - but it is way overdue for a song list. I haven't had time to sort through my emails in the last few weeks, so Fresh from the Post might have to wait a while. What I had time...

Scary Mansion

Fresh from the Post comes back with another New York band. Hailing from Brooklyn, Scary Mansion's sound is a lovely blend of pop and rock, oftentimes accented by the sound of a thunderstick - a three-stringed acoustic instrument similar to a banjo or a dulcimer that...

I LOVE EYES CANDY : Music Videos from the Philippine Islands

Back in the mid 80’s there used to be show called Video Hit Parade in one of those Marcos owned TV stations. It was during those times that I first saw Aha’s Take On Me, Rick Astley’s weird yet strangely appealing hair dance and the heyday of the New Wave movement. I...

I am a Lucky Soul fan. Indeed I am. From the first time I heard 'Lips Are Unhappy', I instantly got hooked - all the more with a full listen to their debut album The Great Unwanted. Ali Howard's sweet soothing vocals, partnered with 60's style upbeat soul, was the...

Hello, goodbye…and a one day break from playing indie

And we're back. Apologies for the unannounced hiatus there. It just tells you how truly 'indie' this website is, since basically, there's only one person running it. And when that said person flies home because of a family emergency...everything stops.  It's kind...

A Song List by Paolo (The World Autism Awareness Day Special)

To anyone who's ever cared to read the About Us section of this site, you would know that part of the reason why I made this site was for my son Paolo - who loves indie music, as well as surfing on the net. Another cool thing about him is that he's autistic. When I...
