Out of the Box Saturday

It's all about me discovering something that is different. I don't want to post things that you and I have more than likely heard before. I want to find something different. I'll cover something sing | songy one week, and artsy | fartsy the next.

I happened on this next band by accident. I was looking up music for my Color and Design Theory Class. They do an exercise when I give them a kind of music style or dance move. Then they have an hour to do a small piece reflecting that with line. For some students it's too open ended, while others really enjoy it. Usually I'm much more specific in what I want with full blown assignments. Examples might be to use soft swirly lines to depict ballet, or hard, sharp and repetitive lines for rap. I was looking up examples for Indie music.

I really like this company called Spurifyourself. They have a groups of music that fits well together. They are based in Montreal. I really like listening to it because it has variety, but similar enough songs. I'll be listening to to music on this site more!

One artist that I found is: José Gonzalèz. He is a Swedish indie folk singer-songwriter and guitarist.

His newest album is his first in seven years was produced by González in his home as well in Sweden. It consists of years’ worth of musical sketches that in other hands might naturally sprawl wildly in sound and style, but on Vestiges & Claws González has created a collection of songs that cohere just about perfectly, ensuring his position as one of the most important artists of his generation.

Like Rosey said, I was thinking this is a sound from like the 60's or 70's. Has a very mellow vibe about it!

They are very talented. I now want to listen to more of their songs.
