The New LoFi

Ten Years


Music as a whole is a very specific form of creative expression. Music appeals to certain personality types and not others. If you’re reading this blog, I’m sure you know one or two of those “music types”. Yet within the whole, there are many genres, sub-genres, micro-genres, etc. Video, which isn’t really our focus on The New Lo-Fi, works the same way. There are definitely those “film types” or “video types”. Similarly there are many styles of video, styles of editing, styles of telling stories through moving pictures. It always amazes me when I see the two; sound and video, come together in a way that one elevates the other or one helps bring new life to the other.

I’m not going to get any deeper into the sound / video thing but this teaser was so artfully put together that I couldn’t help but mention it. This teaser by Data Airlines actually does what a teaser is supposed to do; make you want to see and hear more. Nicely done Data Airlines.

Check out the video teaser for Carla off the new four track EP by GEM TOS. This EP is best described as “chip-tune EBM sung in French and Italian”. After checking out the video, check out the atari inspired EP which is available on Bandcamp, Spotify, Soundcloud and a whole bunch of other spots online.
