Scotland-based indie label, mini50 records,
has yet again released another fabulous compilation that takes a small look into their line-up.
The mood is tense and dark, perfect for these colder months approaching upon us. This winter sampler is perfect for your Sunday Listening, the sort of music that can lap in the background of your day. Even more perfect is that it’s all available for free download.
If you enjoy what you hear, make sure you check out the label’s website and take a deeper look into what they’ve got their hands in.
The new music video for Hiva Oa’s song, “Badger,” starts out hauntingly. It’s as if you’ve lost your hearing and all that’s left is an ominous tone ringing inside your head. You’re confusingly watching the world around you with no sound to match.
I love the immediate grasp of attention with the dramatic start. The glitchy nature of the filming is somewhat alarming, creating tenseness that already has been building while you’re literally following the lead character. I appreciate the involvement, well executed.
Download “Badger” below and be sure to check out the rest of Future Nostalgia on Hiva Oa’s bandcamp.
Badger – Hiva Oa
Right-click and enjoy.
Sometimes you need music that will let you slowly ease into your day.
Music that’s soft and elegant, something that pulls at your heart just the ever so slightest. Of course I love the minimal elements peppered throughout each track of the 4-song album from Scotland based group, Hiva Oa.
Subtle strings and soft storytelling, be sure to listen completely through. Future Nostalgia is listed on the groups bandcamp page as “name your price” which you can grab here.
