It’s Top 3 Video time! The best of the Top 3 videos for April 30, 2016!
First up is Skating Polly. Wikipedia says; “Skating Polly is an American rock band formed in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma in 2009. The band consists of multi-instrumentalists Kelli Mayo and Peyton Bighorse, who were 9 and 14 years old when the band formed. The band is noted for its members alternating instruments, childlike yet mature and poetic lyrics, melodic arrangements, rudimentary musicianship and an eclectic array of songs that vary in style from riot grrrl to piano-based indie pop.”
#3) Skating Polly – Pretective Boy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TNdiPi6Sy3o
At #2 is a trio from Las Vegas who were introduced to us by genius music curator, Kona Cindy. Thanks Cindy, you are tops!!! She loves this band and they describe themselves as an “Art Rock band.” Their name is Palaye Royale and they have the look and their tunes are great.

#2) PALAYE ROYALE – Mr. Doctor Man https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nzM134EhSFQ
At #1 is a song that was introduced to us by an artist named Julie (You can see one of Julie’s videos here). Julie turns us onto an awesome new artist named Mitski who I am told is half-Japanese and was born in Japan but now lives in New York. Her Wikipedia says; “Mitski was born in Japan and grew up surrounded by her mother’s 1970s pop CDs. Her family moved frequently, from Japan to the Democratic Republic of Congo to Malaysia to China to Turkey, among other countries, before coming to New York City. Her music reflects her cross-cultural identity as “half Japanese, half American, but not fully either,” and issues of belonging.” Here is her FB page: Go “Like” it. I think Mitski is going to be a big star!
#1) Mitski – Your Best American Girl https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u_hDHm9MD0I
SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! Today’s spotlight is an artist from Tokyo Japan named Molice. Molice is a rock, alternative indie band formed in January 2007. They formed from the dissolution of two other bands, The Radicales and China Chop. Here’s their FB page. Please go “Like” it. https://www.facebook.com/molice.music/?fref=ts
