04-01-2015 // Must-Have of the Month: Landlady - Upright Behavior|
The only record I'm buying this month is Upright Behaviour by Landlady. This record was released in July of 2014 and it's among the finest records I've discovered in the year that's now officially done. I wanted to write about it sooner, but decided to do something a little special by making it the 1st post of 2015 and naming it a Must-Have of the Month. Whenever I listen to this record I remember the excitement I felt the first time I listened to TV On The Radio or Grandaddy. Landlady has that same raw energy and chaotic sound combined with pumping riffs and 70s vocals.
Brilliant record. My advice for this month: get it and never regret it!
30-12-2014 // Album: Hilbrandt - Haven|
The last great album of the year I really wanted to share with you is Haven by Dutch folkband Hilbrandt. This is a rough and tough record that is linked to the water of the sea in sound, lyrics and spirit. If we were celebrating New Years Eve in my house this year, we would lit a few candles and only be listening to this haunting record, and it would slowly take over the souls of everyone present. We would all be changed into something from darker times by the time the clock hits midnight.
This is dark Dutch folk and I have no clue how it sounds if you can't understand the lyrics, but I encourage you to find out. It would be a waste not to give it a try, as this is one of the most expressive (Dutch) records of the year.
29-12-2014 // Album: The Brilliance - The Brilliance|
Another great record from my to-do list is The Brilliance by The Brilliance. This is an intense and melancholic album with power, soul and everything beautiful. The name itself does a better job at describing this record than I ever could. Enjoy this beautiful work of art. Embrace it. Spend an evening in the dark with it. It'll light up your life. It did for me.
24-12-2014 // Track: Juleah - Beautiful For You|
Juleah's record Entangled And Entwined will definately remain on my playlist for a long time to come. Her record is forever linked to my beautiful girlfriend and her music will always be the soundtrack to the Summer of 2014. This new song has that same relaxing surfer's style and is again addictive and haunting as fuck.
I can listen to her music forever.
23-12-2014 // Track: L'anarchiste - Rust|
there's a place where I
saw mountains made of rust
that stretched and twirled about
and shook the heart from dust
Rust - L'anarchiste
23-12-2014 // Track: Rachel Thomasin - A Memory|
Another century a changing memory
Uncanny lands that I have never seen
My eyes are blocked at night
But I can see so wide
Visions decay the moment that I wake
A Memory - Rachel Thomasin
22-12-2014 // Album: Late Guest At The Party - Repeater|
Another record that has been on my To-Do-list for months now and never made it onto this blog. But when I think back, I must've listened (and danced) to it a lot over the last few months. Late Guest At The Party has released a killer album, great for playing really loud, singing and dancing along while getting some work done, either at work or around the house. Whatever the day brings, this record always brightens my mood. Pure fun.
Personal favorite: Reload (click for the video).
