Tulagi Drift: Uncovered Histories - Documentary

We just posted "Recall (Remix Feat. Kara Square" by TheDICE and we are pleased to share that it has been used in the documentary trailer for Tulagi Drift: Uncovered Histories.  This dark, melancholic, and mysterious rock song is a compelling backdrop for the trailer.  Here's a brief synoposis of the story from the informative documentary website:

A torpedo attack on the MV Tulagi In 1944 started an epic 2900 km raft drift across the Indian Ocean by 15 survivors. Two months later a handful of starved sailors crawled up the beach on Bijoutier Island in the Seychelles.  Read the full story here.

A big thank you to the film maker for using our track!

World's Worst Penguin Parent Video Uses TRR Song!

Brace yourself for a ridiculous amount of laugh-out-loud cuteness!  Project Penguin used "Ukulele Vs. Kazoo and Whistle, Too" for this darling and downright hilarious penguin video.  Give a looksy!

This isn't the first time Project Penguin used our tunes.  Check out this excellent use of "Vox Vs. Uke":

So cool!  And get this... Kara Square has been a penguin enthusiast since she was a kid.  How fun to see her music used like this!  Thanks a TON, Project Penguin!

Warm Welcome to Moira Waugh

Moira WaughThinkroot Records extends a warm and enthusiastic welcome to our newest artist Moira Waugh.  Moira is a singer, lyricist, and novelist with a remarkably strong, rich, captivating voice.  Her lyrics are nothing short of brilliant and her knack for storytelling makes her songs an enthralling experience.  She is originally from Great Britian and now resides in Florida with her husband Mark Bass (also an incredibly talented musician who will soon join us on TRR!).

Moira Waugh's first track on Thinkroot Records is "Lully Lullay."  It's a hauntingly beautiful a cappella rendition of the traditional English Christmas carol "Coventry Carol."  It would be a gorgeous backing track to any winter or Christmas themed video or it could be taken in an entirely different direction as a chilling backdrop to a creepy movie or dramatic documentary.  It's an exquisite first taste of what we all have to look forward to from Moira. 

So hey, give a listen to "Lully Lullay" and let us know what you think.  And when you use it in your project, let's us know!  If we like what you've done, we'll share your work on TRR. 

Introducing... TheDICE!

TheDICEWe are thrilled to introduce TheDICE to Thinkroot Records aficionados.  TheDICE specializes in emotionally compelling piano melodies that are sure to be the perfect accompaniment to your videos, slideshows, animations, and adverts. 

We just posted the first track from this talented Italian producer.  "Goodbyes" is a lovely introduction to TheDICE's natural ability to sonically capture an emotion.  Plus, he's a staunch supporter of sharing through Creative Commons licenses and kindly released this one with a CC-BY license! 

You can look forward to many more songs from TheDICE.  And they're not all instrumentals.  He's got an extremely creative ear for remixes, too.  Right now, he's preparing a rocking version of "Recall" (featuring vocals by Kara Square).

Give a listen to "Goodbyes" and let us know what you think.  Please drop us a note if you use it in your project.  If we love what you've done, we'll share it on TRR!
