The Red Playlist…indie pop/rock and sonic experiments.

The Red Playlist


Here’s the Red one, the Red playlist to start the week with a little more colorful musings a bit different than our beloved and usual dark “colors”, including a thread of talented people who make quality alternative music, open minded with a keen on experimenting their sound and recommending blends with a special taste!

Tulipomania come from Philadelphia with their hazy alternative pop music, and here’s Don’t Be So Sure remixed by Seahawks!



Jason Herring & The Mystery Plan from Charlotte offer adventurous folk nova music, a little psyched dream pop. Vampires Are Lucky is co-produced by John Fryer who inserted his personal touch!



Brian Wenckebach aka MIS+RESS from New Jersey is a shoegaze and electronic experimental musician. A guitar player himself, he released a brilliant record last October: one guitar, loads of effects pedals and heavenly taste, here’s Mr. Bikinis!



Dave Wesley is an electronic experimental artist based in Porto. Ambient music in the urban style mostly, he mixes field recordings with experimental electronica that surprised me with the inner groove. This is Mayhem Lecture Series with Intrepid!



Vancouver’s connect-icut make Music For Granular Synthesizer (the title of the LP), experimental synthetic sonicscapes, this is Laureline!



Japanese/ Russian The Dayoffs live in New York and play loud and groovy indie rock, here’s State Of Madness!



Oakland, California and Labyrinth Lounge, a band that plays afrobeat and indie jazz somehow, fronted by activist singer Valerie Troutt ,check It’s Just Water!



Soft spoken Simon & Garfunkel style, Bruno Merz is a traveller who has lived in various locations on earth and offers music for the first cup of coffee of the day or the last spirit of the night, Breathe Less!



Claudio Conti from Cagliari plays that San Francisco 60’s oriented flower pop and he does it well, here’s Of Nylon!



Los Angeles’ Ari Mason who alternates the alternative pop of Lara Del Ray in a more electronic stream, Empires!



UK’s Only Shadows is a band of only-indie-rock music, entertaining and cool, this is Many A Mountain!



Corniglia are a duo from Australia’s Perth, and they play such a good indie pop-rock music, try But It wasn’t That Long Ago!



Portland’s astonishing Moon Duo with psych pop-rock blended with a pinch of astral dust, Lost In Light!



Austin, Texas and Tres Oui with Prince Of Pop. Groovy dancing, jangle-pop…indie!



Copenhagen’s no wavers Pardans, break it all down with Moonlit Bags Of Meat!



Detroit’s Moon Lake with Rewind, indie sound, indie all!
