Previously featured on Acres Top 20 of 2012 list for the cut “July,” Tiiiza just let loose a hand full of new chiller waves via soundcloud. His music has space, and a vintage hue which lends us all some time with the past. There’s an eerie back drop to his production. If you’re into some true blue soundscape atmospherics (this would be dope in a movie like Drive) pay attention. His new EP just came out called Youth, via Ultra Vague Recordings.
2012 was an interesting year for Holly and me. We learned we’d become parents, due date late January 2013. Our son’s name is Cove, he now is the proud owner of years of collecting music, and a few choice instruments. My first album came out under Nomadic Firs, which had so many weird, and exciting moments. With those two big items I give you this random list, which is a collection of Artists I heard getting played over and over again in our house. These are some of the folks that took me out of my own creations, and allowed me to just be a fan of music again. Something I honestly misplaced, and the reason I do this site. So cheers to all of you for making this last year fun for us, we appreciate it.

The Through and Through
You can write entire stories in the measure of one song. I feel lucky each day, discovering for myself, the absolute power these people have. Within so much searching and wondering, for the sake of securely fashioning an original fashion for ourselves, you get tired man. If not for these melodies, and dreamers, the distance between the edge and myself, would be something less lengthy. Some feathers fly the grid longer than others, and if the sage is burning bright enough, through the vivid picture show, lessons can be learned. Its funny, I miss the vintage youth, mine that is, and the folks I drew all these lines with from before. Life is no easy task, especially when relationships cloud the beauty up, and make you think how some really big things, mean very little. I’m not quite sure what the hell I’m saying right now, but I think I’m reflecting on these subjects I’ve thrown a veil over, so I’m not blinded by the vigorous light of contentious story lines. This song made me say all that, and is making me think I should take a chance at life, more so than I ever have before.
Tiiiza aka Elvis Valov, has two FREE tunes on SC, one of which is “July” from the video. I hope to learn more about Tiiiza, and this EP that either comes out in July, or is out already, and called July. I have no idea, but the video above will hold me over.
