High Highs-Once Around The House

The brand new indie-pop-folk-rock duo from Australia "High Highs" is our new entry to #LOMW. They only became a band in 2013 and they are already pretty big in USA with their debut album "Open Season" released. Jack Milas and Oli Chang are behind the mysteriously sweet song "Once Around The House". When you watch the music video and listen to the harmonic vocals you can catch yourself dreaming for a while... Read the lyrics and watch the music video here.

Iron & Wine-Joy

Sam Beam is the name behind the "Iron & Wine". Sam was raised in South Carolina, in 1974. He took his stage name from a dietary supplement named "Beef Iron & Wine" that he found in a general store while shooting a film. "Joy" is a song about love and how love can make you change your points of view about anything around you. The music video was produced and directed by Hayley Morris and it is basically the narration of the lyrics made by stop motion landscapes and hand made items. En-Joy it here.

Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros-Life Is Hard



We spoke before about those crazy folks, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros! Now, they are back with the very new release of their single "Life Is Hard" taken from their third album. They got some time to record a live performance and turn it into the music video of this single. Alex Ebert, the vocalist of the band, says that instead of making a lip-synced video clip like everyone else does, we'd rather present what we are good at, and this is our live performances. This song will make you feel happy while you realise that your life is pretty hard. Watch the music video and read the lyrics here.

Big Scary-Luck Now

The "Big Scary" is an indie-pop duo from Melbourne! It's not the first time LOMW hosts a band from Australia and definitely not the last. They have this garage-rock style and they sound too natural! "Luck Now" is a song with a few words but solid meaning, describing the exact sound of the heart, we all lose every day. Dark and insane. You can watch the music video and read the lyrics of "Luck Now" here.

William Fitzsimmons-If You Would Come Back Home

William Fitzsimmons is basically the reason I've started to listen to indie-folk music. His songs was played at the background of Grey's Anatomy so I had to find out who was singing. He was born and raised by two blind parents. They taught him how to listen and play good music. He is the owner of a master in Counseling  and he worked as a therapist before he turned into a musician. His music is inspired by the divorce of their parents and by his own divorce. Both first and second album are full self-produced at his home. The music video of his song "If You Would Come Back Home" is directed by Josh Franer . Together they won an award for a documentary short film for "Finding Home". This video clip is full of symbolisms and it shows how simple things in an abandoned home keep William connected. Enjoy the music and the read the lyrics here.

Arctic Monkeys-Do I Wanna Know?

They are the "Arctic Monkeys". If you don't know them yet, it's the right time to meet them. Their album "AM" just got released and the first song "Do I Wanna Know?" is on #LOMW. It's very strange that I found them recently! Those Monkeys have a bright future ahead. Sheffield seems to be another mother of great artists. Grammy Awards, Brit Awards, two successful albums and some of the best song-titles ever given. The question "Do I Wanna Know?" is the real expression of doubt that humans can have in every relationships. The music video is animated and here you can read the lyrics too.
