A great EP of just a little over 8 minutes in which 5 songs are presented by one-man band Max Sollisch aka Dolfish. He has a very specific voice (i have to admit, i thought i was listening to a female's voice at first) and tells great personal stories. The garage-rock sound is perfectly raw and it's 8 minutes gone before you know it. But it's also 8 minutes very well spend and 8 minutes you must enjoy again and again. Great record!
Generationals have recently released a free EP with 4 tracks on it or as they say it themselves: 2 new remixes. 1 summer jam. 1 new song. Their album "Actor-Caster" has been out for some time now, but it's still one of the best things i've heard this year & these 4 'new' tracks are very much worth it. it's more of the same great thing they've done on the album and there's only one thing to do with this: enjoy the fuck out of it!
Another Monday, another Monday Morning Kick-Off. Tribes is a British rockband that is about to release a new record and this track is the 1st single. The song is nice and the video pretty disturbing for a Monday morning so it'll work very nice for waking up.. Only annoying thing is the useless 30-seconds of silence at the beginning of the video, but it makes up for that once the music sets in.. Have a good week!
So last weekend i announced the new weekend-mixtap idea meaning you'd get a great party-mixtape to start off the Saturday-evening with and the 2nd weekend i already fail at it. i have a good excuse, but won't bother, instead i will try and make your sunday a little better with this great remix by Viceroy, presented by Vitalic Noise. It's 30 minutes of great dance-tracks with some great classics in there. Check out the tracklist below & listen/download above.

Dramatic, compelling, orgasmic even (i dare say it..). This is day 5 of listening to Lights In The Sky by The Moth & The Mirror. An epic rock-ballad (which sounds worse than i mean it) that reminds me of some of the best records in my collection. Ayreon, Florence and the Machine are the 1st and most powerfull acts that come to mind, but don't think for a second this is just a copy, combining the best things of others. The Moth & The Mirror have released this 1st track on August 1st with their record label, and although info is scarce i'm gonna go ahead and assume this is just the 1st of a huge collection of great songs, to be combined on their debut album.
Last Wednesday Scroobius Pip celebrated his 30th birthday and gave his fans a nice present with this video: a preview of his album "Distraction Pieces", to be released September 19th. I've been a big fan of Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip since their debut album "Angles" which i still listen to on a regular bases and i'm really looking forward to this debut album by Pip. So far, so good. Because this is a nice track with a cool vid by a talented rapper.
Now this is waking up to something beautiful. SoKo released an EP back in 2007 as a duo, but went on solo not long after that. In 2009 she was supposed to release her full debut album, but she decided otherwise and now, 2 years later, it seems to be released later this year. No More Home, No More Love is the 1st track from this upcoming album and it's simply beautiful. Sometimes all you need is an acoustic guitar and a sweet voice. SoKo knows it and works with it very well!
Not feeling to great these days, don't know what it is, but it's been hard for a few days now to relax. The days are long and uneasy, the nights even longer as i can't seem to get a decent sleep for a few nights in a row now.. Even harder does it get when there's no suitable soundtrack for the long and lonely moments in the darkness of my bedroom. With the 100s of albums stored on my laptop and other machines one should think that it's not hard to find a good tune for these times of the night. But the last 2 nights have convinced me of the opposite (although there was one album that worked for a little while last night) and i'm in desperate need of musical attention.
Today i may have discovered the cure. Not because this album is so boring it will put me out for sure, but because it's such a beautiful and relaxing album. Not "Jack Johnson"-relaxing, cuz what Bryan John Appleby has made is far more beautiful. This is music especially made for those intimate moments in the deep dark night, not specifically for the bedroom, but it'll work just fine. With just a few candles lit in the bedroom (not too close to the curtains off course) and this soothing album playing softly i can easily stare into nothing and wonder off in my own thoughts, untill my mind goes blank and the sweet violins of endtrack The Road gently put me to sleep. Oh what a fine night this will be, goodnight my friends!
