How Sad – Indian Summer [Listen]

It’s shamefully been 2 months since we post. Sorry for the absence, but I think we all needed time to absorb some music, and what better way to kick back into gear with this fantastic artist.

How Sad released their debut EP Indian Summer on the 20th of August. I had previously had their early release track Indian Summer on repeat and have been eagerly awaiting more from the Canadian indie pop group. This is feel-good music, the kind you can’t help but share around with your friends. I can’t stress enough how much I think you should spare £3 from your pocket and download it. I’m going to post my two favourites from the EP, Hot Blur and Indian Summer, but make sure to check out the rest if you feel it’s your kinda thing.

Indian Summer by end’s not near [Listen]

This is a true gem of a track. About a year ago Bad Panda released a free album with a compilation of music from various artists, which as usual was put onto my iPod and buried away without proper attention.  However, like the majority of my loved ambient songs, this one wormed it’s way on my shuffle playlist and happily surprised me.

Japanese minimalist artist, end’s not near, has produced one of my favourite ambient tracks, Indian Summer. I’m a huge Haruki Murakami fan, and for me this song is the perfect soundtrack to his literature. I’m unsure of where the dialogue during the track comes from, or the actual reason for the production of this track, as his other work doesn’t seem to be connected. Either way, it’s a joy to the ears so sit back and relax to it.
