You should call me

Sophisticated Lemons is a Romanian alternative indie band from 2008 but not that very active at least in the past year on Facebook or YouTube.
So enjoy their new single and video, I think this is their first real video and not just a simple animation.
Hopefully they are back and full of energy and will lunch soon a new material.

I was listening them in the past too and this was my favorite song:

The Amsterdams Eternity for Dummies

Why would you kill somebody’s time?

The Amsterdams are a Romanian indie/electro band formed in Bucharest, 2005.
On the 12th of April 2016 the band released their 4th full length studio record, called „Eternity for Dummies” and now they released a video for the “Girl You’re Frightened
“the 6nd song from the album.
This video contains images from the movie Illegitimate, one of the most instigating Romanian movie in recent years.

The Amsterdams – Girl, You’re Frightened (Ilegitim O.S.T.)

Jurjak – Un minut
Regie & montaj: Jurjak


O viață un an o lună
O viață o zi o oră o săptamană
O viață o secundă un minut și te-am pierdut
Oare cât durează însă o viață?
Unde timpul e de gheață
Aș vrea să o luăm acum de la început

O viață un an o lună
O viață o zi o oră strange-mă de mână
O viață o sutime miimi mie dor de tine
Oare cât durează insa o viață
Unde timpul e de gheață
mmmmm mmm mmmm mmmmm
Aș vrea să o luăm acum de la inceput
O viață o lună o saptamană
o viață o sutime .. mie dor de tine

The Mono Jacks

The new single from Mono Jacks is here and is warm like this summer:

baby elvis - debut album white Elephant

First album from Baby Elvis White Elephant is full of music

Finally is here the big “White Elephant” the debut album from Baby Elvis. For such a young baby born, just one year, they move very well. Even if they are not as big as the King Elvis they know how to play that guitar and made a solid album with 12 songs full of energy, an album that was worth the wait.

The name of the album “White Elephant” is quite interesting; It is an expression that refers to an unwanted possession that would be difficult to dispose of. The term derives from a Siam (Thailand) story. Whenever the king of Siam wished to to mock and ruin an offending courtier, he would give him a white elephant, which the courtier then had to maintain at great expense.
So be careful, this album may be be hard to dispose of ,once you get it!

They have a new website with all the links where you can get the new album in your favorite format.

BABY ELVIS – I Don’t Mind

You’re my lullaby

You don’t know a thing about Annie Ting!

Fresh Indie Rock from Oradea Romania with their first 2 singles. Yes you heard well they are from Romania and they sound so Artic Monkeys.
Their debut album White Elephant it will be release in this autumn and mixed by english producer Adam Whittaker so stay tuned.

Lyrics Annie Ting
You see her face, you don’t know what to say
She’s very hot, like a day in Bombay
Got pretty eyes, Annie Ting is her name
You’ve never met her, oh my god what a shame

You don’t know a thing about Annie Ting!

She’s kind of strange, she’s not easy to read
Compared to her Dostoyevsky’s a kid
It’s such a pity you can’t find what she likes
It would be cool if she’d enjoy the White Stripes

You see her face you don’t know what to say
She’s not quite right like a night in Marseille
Her perfect hair will not give her away
You’ll never touch her, oh my god what a shame

You wish to chat, you want to send her a mail
Don’t got the address, what an epic fail
You spend some days to make a new plan
But what you find is that in fact she’s a man

And the second single Plonk:

Picături pentru al treilea ochi

Eyedrops – Bicicleta Indie pop/rock band from Bucharest.
