22-08-2011 // Monday Morning Kick-Off: [MM-KO] Man Man - Life Fantastic

Life Fantastic is a nice Monday Morning Kick-Off because it's sweet and melodieus, but also explodes near the ending. It gives you the opportunity to wake up feelin relaxed, but not too relaxed. Because it's a Monday and we all have to get back to the daily routines today. Have a good week!

15-08-2011 // Monday Morning Kick-Off: [MM-KO] Clock Opera - Lesson No. 7

Another Monday, Another Kick-Off. This brand new track by Clock Opera is set to be released October 3rd, but can already be enjoyed via their soundcloud. It starts off nice and easy, but builts up the pace as it goes along. A perfect Monday morning song, as this is basically how Mondays work, we start off eeeeeaaaaaazzzzyyyy and slowly get back into the rhythm of the week. Have a good one!

14-08-2011 // EP: Kuhlamity - Indulgence

Nice hiphop-mixtape from unknown rapper Kuhlamity. This 9-track mixtape is a great exhibition of his skills, which are undoubtfully there. He's working on an album, with hopefully a little more consistency, but as this is a mixtape it makes sense that it's going in all directions. Most of the tracks are really good with Legacy (which you can hear above) and My Relation as absolute highlights. Click the pic to download the entire mixtape for free & show Kuhlamity some love through Facebook, he deserves it!

12-08-2011 // Album: Trotting Bear - Morning

Trotting Bear is a folk-band from St. Louis. They play soft, silent tunes with whispering vocals, acoustic guitars and they ooze relaxation. Imagine a warm, slow day of doing absolutely nothing. All you might need is a cold bottle of water, a pack of cigarettes and the perfect soundtrack played to you by this band. You can download this 9-track EP for free from their bandcamp and the next hot Summer day you should give this idea a try. I'm sure it'll be nothing less than perfect, as it's one of the finest albums i have heard in a while. This is definately the next addition to the 2011-Favourites list!

10-08-2011 // EP: Dolfish - Your Love Is Bummin' Me Out

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!

08-08-2011 // EP: Generationals - Medium Rarities EP

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!

08-08-2011 // Monday Morning Kick-Off: [MM-KO] Tribes - Sappho

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!

02-08-2011 // Album: Bryan John Appleby - Fire on the Vine

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!

01-08-2011 // Monday Morning Kick-Off: [MM-KO] Two Wounded Birds - Guns At Dawn

Another weekend has passed, another Monday has emerged. The vacation is at it's peak moments now & even the sun is trying it's best to co-operate. To start off the week properly there's a new [Monday Morning Kick-Off] and this week it's a short instrumental track by Two Wounded Birds (who can celebrate their 2nd [MM-KO] now). They are releasing 3 Summer Surf Instrumentals and Guns At Dawn is the 1st track. It's a great Summer-track with a little bit of Tarantino in it, perfect on a Monday morning. Have a good week!
