Video of the Day #42: Summer Fiction

Back to Philly. Summer Fiction is a Philadelphia-based pop group led by Bill Ricchini. Their previous music video Chandeliers also featured in this video of the day section. I loved that song, but never properly checked out the full album. I really need to do that now, because this seem to be totally my kind of stuff. Throw Your Arms Around Me is another wonderful and oh so charming song from their debut album.

Video of the Day #40: Shotgun Jimmie

Lately I’ve been introducing myself to Canadian lo-fi indie rocker Shotgun Jimmie. It started with this goofy video One Trick Pony a week or two ago. First I thought it was a little too goofy, but soon I gave in and admitted that I loved it. Then it was time to check out other stuff and after listening to his songs on spotify and youtube, it’s rather easy to say that Shotgun Jimmie isn’t just another indie rocker. This guy is actually pretty damn good. Somehow his songs take me back to the nineties when north american indie rock bands ruled the world. New album Transistor Sister is due to be released in march by You’ve Changed Records. You’ll find a couple of mp3s from the new album if you visit these links. Pigeon Row & Herohill. And here’s that One Trick Pony from the earlier EP.
