Watch Milosh – “Slow Down” (Dir. Milosh) – Official Video

The Weekend is here, and we leave you with this beautiful, simple and understated video by Michael Milosh, “Slow Down”. Milosh is the singer for Rhye, and he’s also got his own solo album coming out. The lady in the video is the actress Alexa Nikolas, his wife. The entire video is, more or less, a loving tribute to her face, and that’s just about the most romantic thing I’ve ever seen.

About the artist:
Michael Milosh, known professionally as Milosh, is a Canadian electronic musician. As well as being an electronic musician, he is a classically trained cellist starting from age three, as well as a jazz aficionado. He describes himself as wanting to make music that moves its listeners, whether it be “good, bad or sad”. The Los Angeles-based record label Plug Research released two of Milosh’s albums including 2004’s You Make Me Feel and 2006’s Meme. He also contributed the track “Then it Happened” on the Ghostly International/Williams Street album Ghostly Swim, which was released as an MP3 download on April 22, 2008. He formed the band Rhye, with Robin Hannibal, and they released the debut album, Woman in March 2013.
 
To quote “Milosh”: I started playing cello at the age of three and looking back, with older eyes, I have to admit that I’ve always had an intense attraction to songs that are sad, soft and beautiful. I ended up studying music in University (drums and voice) and playing in many different kinds of bands from rock to jazz. Ultimately though, I’ve always wanted to create songs that in some way come from that same place in me that felt so much for the music that defined my childhood — beautiful music. I try to capture moments of my life in the songs that I create. I take things that, for whatever reason — be it good, bad or sad, have moved me in some way. I wrap them up in sounds that I think are cool and fit what I am trying to say. I try to ride that thin line of mixing technology with some heart and I try not to cloud the original intention of the song. Basically I like pretty things and in turn I am trying to make pretty things.

Milosh, who is from Toronto, Ontario, is currently based in Los Angeles U.S.A.

Watch Japandroids Perform “Adrenaline Nightshift” on “Letterman”

Japandroids @ David Letterman Show NYC

Japandroids @ David Letterman Show NYC

This band is awesome! Two people can produce wonderful music! Watch Brian: He’s got his guitar signal split into two different amplifiers so when he plays a chord, one amp is transmitting it clean and very bass heavy, resulting in the “bass line” you’re hearing when he hits the lower strings. The other amp is giving the usual distorted guitar sound you’re hearing play the higher chords. So he’s playing both at the same time. You can see at 2:20 hes using his middle finger to play different bass notes behind the “solo”.

Japandroids are in the middle of a seemingly never-ending tour right now. The Vancouver duo took a break to perform on “Letterman” last night, bowling through Celebration Rock’s (not “celebrity rock,” Dave) “Adrenaline Nightshift”. Watch below:
