guillaumeOne of BZ's good friends is back in the saddle of music... Guillaume Simon formerly behind the band Shine has returned with his solo project called Indolore.  We love his description of his return, "It’s never too late to start it all over again, never too late to hit the road and leave the past behind."

What a great statement that runs very deep in thought, much like the 5 EP release by Guillaume, songs that are rich in emotion and vocals that are beautifully crafted and placed.  Indolore translation to english means 'painless', and we are happy to hear this is the mindset of our good friend.

crossesCrosses hail from Los Angeles and are Chino Moreno, Shaun Lopez and Chuck Doom. They are on Sumerian Records and we were turned onto them from the artist OX who remixed the track, 'Bermuda Locke' which comes from devilboydnb.

philipaniskinPhilip Aniskin hails from Russia and presents his Deepteco label and Deeptica radio show.  As a producer and DJ, Philip enjoys his 4/4 beats, but teams up with Alexsandra Mell to bring us a beautiful track titled, "Los Angeles Dream".

lily madGo back to the beginning, when it was just a piano, guitar and two undiscovered voices. This stripped down form lends itself to the elegance and power of sister’s, Lily & Madeleine Jurkiewicz, dynamic voices. The beautiful simplicity of acoustic recordings helped the sisters reach viral fame in 2012 and will now be featured on Lily and Madeleine Acoustic Sessions.

 

Like truth, beauty resides in simplicity. When it manifests itself, it doesn’t require elaborate arguments or proofs; you can’t debate someone into apprehending it. It’s apparent and all it requires is appreciation, or perhaps even love. Such are the songs of Lily & Madeleine.

 

All while recording and releasing two albums, The Weight of the Globe EP and Lily & Madeleine LP, touring Europe and the US, the songstress sisters have been recording acoustic versions of their hits. Lily & Madeleine Acoustic Sessions is an intimate reworking of previous tracks and a striking cover of “Sea of Love” by Phil Phillips, popularized by Cat Power.

 

The songs on Lily & Madeleine Acoustic Session trigger profound emotional effects. The shimmering recollections of that summer, that girl, that kiss, the scent of that evening air, the heat of those afternoons, all float in and out of consciousness as these songs play, transporting you to the world inside you that knows everywhere you have been, but that does not know time, or its passage, or its end.
