He’s handsome, sounds a bit like a mixture between Bon Iver and James Vincent McMorrow, and his recent single, Invisible Man, comes with a dreamy video produced by the artist himself. Former Leftfield vocalist Ruu Campbell has everything it takes to be a singer-songwriting star. And it’s great to see him switch genres with such […]
The Bon Iver album For Emma, Forever Ago changed the way in which I listen to music: its simplicity, raw ambience, its honest eeriness, and the unexpected sound of Justin Vernon scratching his beard, make it an album I consider life-changing. Bon Iver, Bon Iver is a glorious progression on the minimalism of the previous […]
So just who made this awesome Bon Iver video? Well, he also made this awesome Kanye West video below. Yes, two polar genres of music under one director. Starting out in Brisbane before moving to LA, film director Nabil has flourished as a photographer and director working with some of the biggest musicians in the world.

A nice little mash-up between the lovely Lykke Li and the ever-talented Bon Iver. The original is deeply intimate, whereas this rendition takes the song to the great outdoors and injects vibrant percussion, accompanied by the funky moves of Sweden’s finest export since Bjorn Borg’s mullet.
Red hot Montreal band Land of Talk feature Elizabeth Powell, a former punk who got her start playing her own anti-rock anthems on the local scene of Guelph, Ontario, during her mid-teens. We got the inside word from her on the tunes that inspire Land of Talk’s own high energy frock and roll. The first […]
The man who brought us the masterpiece, For Emma, Forever Ago, is soon to release the follow-up EP, Blood Bank. Given the staggering acclaim For Emma received, his approach to the release must have been a nervous one, weighed down by the expectations of an entire music industry and its league of followers. Blood Bank […]
