Video: ‘I’m So Concerned’ new single from No Small Children

This morning, EILE is delighted to feature a great new track from LA-based all-girl band, No Small Children (or as they call themselves, a band). NSC formed in 2012, and their latest single, I’m So Concerned, is from their fourth album, What Do The Kids Say?

The band is made up of elementary school-teachers, who decided to start a band while on recess duty in the playground – guitarist and singer, Lisa Pimentel, drummer, Nicola Berlinsky, and bass player and singer, Joanie Pimentel.

Sounding very like a protest song, with edgy lyrics against a background of almost orchestral instrumental, it’s an earworm that stays with you long after you’ve finished listening, and you may feel compelled to play it again! Enjoy!

Listen: Taking Me Over – OCNSIDE

Taking Me Over is the latest single from Pop/Rock/Soul Californian band, OCNSIDE (David Dennis and Tony Aguiar) and one that brings good feelings and Summer haze with it. The upbeat feel-good track will leave you feeling all is right with the world, “I still believe me and you are never gonna end” and when the pared back verse goes into the full sound upbeat chorus, you already want to sing along with it. Have a listen and see what you think!

The decision by Indonesian President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo to select Ma’ruf Amin as his vice-presidential running mate in the 2019 presidential election, raises questions about Jokowi’s commitment to improve human rights protection for all Indonesians, according to Human Rights Watch.

Amin, who has been the chairman of Indonesia’s Ulama Council (Majelis Ulama Indonesia, or MUI), and leader of the Nahdlatul Ulama since 2015, has played a pivotal role in fuelling worsening discrimination against the country’s religious and gender minorities. Continue Reading »
