Indieland News - Late Nov / Early Dec 2006 edition: Telemetry Orchestra, Cornershop and some Great Videos

It's Australia's Telemetry Orchestra!

I stumbled across this band through their new video. The song is "Under the Cherry Tree" and the video is simply amazing. Director Dael Oates (of Animal Logic) created the animated music video and here it is:

Under the Cherry Tree - VIDEO

Consistently different and a real sonic treat - Cornershop is an absolute necessity when making a mixtape for friends and lovers. I mean it and just to show you here are some amazing tracks - two of which are being offered free by the band on their website.

Non-music related news to make you think.
This is the most amazing advertisement I have ever seen. As far as I am aware it has not aired yet in the US. Can you guess the product before it tells you?

Prepare to be amazed.

“I watch the newspapers for you. I do it so you can continue wasting your time doing something really important like weaving with your loom or whittling a wooden bowl from a tree stump.

Swan Lake is in stores now.

This Indie Canadian super group (see my previous post with mp3s here) should be on the gift list for the indie hipsters on your holiday shopping list. Highly recommended music.

Hey Ryan thanks for the message. The weather here has been great, unless you're into that whole "winter" thing. 80 degress yesterday.

And in Boston?

thats a pretty wild commercial..i had no idea what it was trying to sell..odd is what it was for!

That music vid is neat too..its a shame that the really good videos are never seen by the masses though.
