The Repressions are humbly excited to announce their entry video “Let’s Get Depressed,” for NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest 2021. NPR has been doing Tiny Desk Concerts for many years on All Songs Considered. The contest features independent artists and gives a great showcase of musical talent, songwriting, and creative use and placement of desks!
Here is the link to the contest on NPR, and a link to YouTube to like and comment on the video. Thank you!
Now on YouTube is a new video of “Tiny Little Love Song,” a song about the many kinds of love, where it goes and falls and, making it stay, and giving it all away.
Click on over to YouTube today to hear and see a live performance video of Nate and his original song “Some Kind of Lion,” from a recent live stream show. Thank you for watching!
Bright Lights, and A Wild New Year! For the past two years Nate and Barbara celebrated New Year’s Eve with merriment and music, and a video for their song Bright Lights. This year features a performance of their song from their live stream show, the nature of live art made possible by the wildness of technology.
Bright Lights is a journey of love and change, reconciling our natural selves in the modern world, nature against and with machinery, and leaping into your life even when you cannot see. Happy New Year Friends. Thank you for being here again.
This is a song about forgiveness, trying to forgive, risking and swimming and falling and colliding into yourself, and all we must dive through to learn what forgiveness truly is… From The Repressions 11/14/20 live stream show on TwitchMusic… with added lyrics! You can find the official track for “From The Blue Green Sea” on all music streaming platforms!
When Nate played solo gigs, his Radiohead covers were strongly requested, even earning him the nickname “Nateohead” in the local music scene. His vocal range and love for the songs are so apparent, that the tribute must be made. Here is a new video from the 10/31/20 Twitch live stream show, of Knight Nate covering “All I Need.”
March of 2020 was the last time The Repressions performed in front of a live (non virtual) audience. While they long for these shows again, they are grateful that that small evening was blessed with a long set and a lovely audience.
Moonlight Magic is a wonderful example of Forest Music, and a misty dream that we will make our forests anywhere, through music and art and love and hope.
Many weeks in quarantine and life disrupted and derailed have affected us all so deeply~ a new emotional wave persists: What is coming? What will the new after be? Do we wait for it, search for it, or create it? This song is called To The After.
Episode 2 of Five Questions with The Repressions is on Youtube now! Sage is a wonderful artist and illustrator ~ hear her answers to our silly questions and see a few of her paintings at the end of the video.
Sage Cotignola is an artist that The Repressions greatly admire, who creates lush storytelling and emotionally evocative work in a signature style. The Repressions were so glad to attend her exhibition at Greenpoint Gallery in Brooklyn in February 2020 and get the chance for an interview. A few paintings are shown at the end of this video, but do visit her website for the full gallery~ it is a visual feast! Find and follow her!
Sage usually paints in gouache on watercolor paper or on wood. She revels in the over-the-top and the unusual. She’s inspired by mythology, folktales, Medieval painting, Japanese woodblock prints, and the more surprising aspects of everyday life.
Thanks to Zack Dash for filming!
