20-11-2013 // Track: Delta Will - Holy Ghost|
Fleet Foxes could've recorded this song. And that's one of the biggest compliments I've given all year. Good job, Delta Will!
15-11-2013 // MixTape: Well-Played 001: Everybody Wins|
There's an ever-growing list of songs and albums that I listen to on several devices that are just not brilliant enough to get an item themselves, but great enough to get a mention. Just to give these fine songs the attention they deserve and to help you find a lot of great songs at once, I'll be making these setlists whenever I damn please, pretty much how I do all of my writings. Here's part 1 of the series: Everybody Wins.
New Gary Clark Jr music. Hell yeah!
This has been playing at least 12 times a day these last 2 days. great cover!
The band calls this 'music Clint Eastwood would use in a spaghetti-western'.
I thought 'Sail' was their only great song, I was wrong.
Morgan Doctor released an instrumental album recently, this is the best song on it.
This is how the weekend should sound. This remix is as good as the original!
Now that the weekend has started, let's celebrate by dancing our arse off!
7 tracks for the weekend. Or Monday mornings. Or Tuesday afternoons. Whenever you feel like it, play a great song. that's pretty much how I survive the dull moments in life. And right then & there it cheers me up, and Everybody Wins.
12-11-2013 // Track: Waterdeep - Humming Along|
This day sucked. I wanted to listen to punk music very loud all evening and drink a shitload of alcohol to I could forget about how fucked up this day was. Instead, I played "Humming Along" from Waterdeep's latest record Moment and it lit up my day like only the Sun can suddenly come through on a grey, cold rainy day. There's nothing that can cheer me up like a good song can and this is just perfect for a crappy day!
11-11-2013 // Monday Morning Kick-Off: The Joy of Painting - Good Mood|
It's Monday morning but "I woke up today in a good mood, I can't say that it will last" - from The Joy of Painting's really cool album Tender Age. If you didn't wake up in a good mood, this song will definately help you get there! Have a good week!
10-11-2013 // Track: Said The Whale - Helpless Son|
I'm sure some point our lives, we can all relate to this song. The thing that makes it so much more intense beside the lyrics, is the song itself. It suits the lyrics and the message in it perfectly. And even if you close your eyes and think of candy, if you ignore the lyrics, the video and the general feel of the song, this is still a beautiful piece of music. I really wanted to buy Said The Whale's new album hawaiii because I love the previous record so much, but restricted myself to the one-album-a-month promise I made to my wallet. This song broke my spirit, I ordered myself the vinyl and I can not wait for this baby to play at maximum volume.
07-11-2013 // Introducing: Gildas|
Not a clue who or what Gildas is. I don't even remember how I ended up on his(?) Soundcloud-page, but I did one day and I never left. There are a lot of great songs on and it makes a beautiful collection. I can't understand the lyrics, but that doesn't matter. I can feel the music, the harmony, the intensity. It's more than enough for being inspired, being enjoyed, being accompanied.
Not a clue who or what Gildas is, but I really hope to hear a lot more music from this man/band/project in the future!
07-11-2013 // Track: Andy - London|
A new song by Andy and it's just another beautiful addition to her amazing songbook. I just want to keep listening to this and find myself singing this song whenever I can. There's something about her voice and the fine piano ballads that gives her music something special and irresistible. Love it!
