Have a Happy Vancouver Saturday

Have a Happy Vancouver Saturday

If you're wondering why I'm posting the video for that song in that Hyundai commercial, it's because Vancouver's throwing a big party at Stanley Park and The New Pornographers are playing 🙂  They're actually just one of the bands from a long list of performers...

OK Go premieres new video

OK Go creates videos that I have the compulsion to share - so here it is. Fresh off of debuting it this morning on Ellen - this is their latest called White Knuckles. It's full of all things lovable, a great song, cute furry animals and IKEA products (I got two of...

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,...

OK Go’s End Love Video

Just because I seldom post new music news and I still haven't gotten to my emails to set up a Q and A for Fresh from the Post - here's something that's sort of Fresh from the Post: OK Go's new video 🙂 Going back to their roots of accompanying their songs with offbeat...

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...

I love these guys - not only because they've got an Indie Music Database pick of the week section in their programme - it's also because they're  hilarious to listen to. Adam Hiniker and Vance Barber are two guys from Queens, New York who've got this stellar podcast...

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...

The Misunderstood Robot

To long-time visitors of the site, you might remember the robot that hovers over the left side of the page when you visit. I've actually contemplated on putting it on a shirt or something, since Paolo is always proud of seeing it shown (since it looks oh-so-edgy with...

New Year, New Stuff..and stars?

You might want to ask - why are there stars in the background? I'm wondering that too. I've actually been racking my brain trying to think of something to fill those whitespaces and that's the best I could think of. It kind of looks like wrapping paper - it must be my...

The Indie Music Database wants your help

As some of you know, I run the site all by my lonesome...with occasional help from my doting little boy Paolo. Since the site's all nice and semi-spiffy, I'd figure, you guys wouldn't mind (or be ashamed) to contribute some of your indie music favorites in the form of...

25 Indie Songs of Christmas

It's December, and you know what comes next. A trip to the mall will probably give you that all too familiar Christmas feel, what with Mariah Carey or The Jackson 5 piped in through the mall sound system. If you're up to getting your Christmas Spirit on, but want none...

The First One Hundred and Twenty

    Yes, we've reached the 120 mark! Considering how long this site has been up, I'm not sure if I should celebrate or not. According to my therapist  though, I'm on a negative thought stopping program, so...Hip! Hip! Hooray!  And to celebrate the...

Site Updates and then some…

It's been a while since I put in an entry for site updates...and it's long overdue. Now, I can proudly say, all site features are fully functional. None of those messages to check this space in a couple of days . Nope! We've got brand spanking new things to explore -...

Let’s Celebrate the New Look with Some Shout Out Louds

If you guys haven't noticed yet...we've got a new look to the site :)I'd I've outdone myself this time (pats myself on the back). It looks pretty decent I might say. I did love the old shocking-red artist pages - though this I guess, is better for long usage without...

Gone for a month and all we get is a submission form?

Well, it's THE submission form...so you know, it'll be easier for me to update the DB when you submit your information in. I know, I know - it looks a bit crappy if you look at it web-design wise (much like the whole site) - but it's a whole three days worth of hard...

The Indie Music Database is now live!

Yes, it's alive! ...though barely. This project is as indie as it gets. A one man production, with the occasional help and moral support from friends and family, backed up by the artistic stylings of my five-year old web designer (check out the awesome robots!), here...

The Indie Music Database? Where’s the Database?

Well...it's coming. After several months of thinking, planning and procrastinating, I've finally managed to get the blog  up. But hey, it's totally indie, there's a bit of music, the database part.. just needs a bit of work. Call this a pre-beta version (if there ever...
