For those of you that think waking up with Titus Andronicus is a bit too much after the long relaxing weekend, here's something more easy-going for ya: Lowlakes. This Australian band has just released their 1st (self-titled) EP and it's a beauty beyond belief.
Slow soundscapes with a very specific leading vocalist in the person of frontman Tom Snowdon make this a perfect EP for deep in the night. But with the rainy days we'll be having this week and with that long weekend off still in our mellow heads, this is the perfect soundtrack for those of us that refuse to wake up and get back to work.. Visit their website for the rest of the EP and have a relaxing Tuesday, my friends.
(ps. the laptop has regained a little bit of life, so no downtime, it seems :)
In an attempt to keep some great tunes coming your way, here's a Titus Andronicus Mixtape that was released in March. It's a collection of covers, live-shows and demos dating back to 2009. And although i'm not a huge fan of this band, it is extremely electric. You can feel the rock 'n roll energy flowing through every song they play. Surprisingly awesome, worth checking out on a dull Tuesday morning after a great Easter weekend!

due to a completely deceased laptop, there will be some downtime on the blog. Unfortunately it's impossible to add videos/soundcloud/bandcamp items via the ipad, so you and me will just have to wait untill i get myself a new laptop.. Which will hopefully arrive later this week.
A great weekend EP this Nonagon EP by Satellite Giant. Long and slow tracks, with seemingly endless soundscapes in an 1970s rockvibe. Somewhat psychedelic, but without the extreme crazyness of it, they never loose track of the song and always keep your attention on the music. Have enjoyed several evenings with this 5-track ‘pay-what-you-want’ EP and I sincerely hope you do too. It may not be very Easteresque music (I just made a word, there), but if it’s good, play it loud! And this is good music!
Too bad there's no sunshine today, cuz this is 100% Summer music. It's catchy, a little cheesy (but just the right amount) and you can easily dance and sing to it. Van She is releasing their new album later this month and if they hold on to this fun-vibe it'll be totally worth checking out!
Somewhere within the next week i'll receive my copy of this great 4-track EP in the mail and I can't wait. Despite having the option to hear it via the Bandcamp-player and the downloaded set I received with ordering the EP, I just really want to hear it playing on my brand new record player!
Not just because that brand new record player is such a nice addition to the little 'music corner' in my living room, but mostly because this Fragile EP by Halls is such a fine little album. "I Am Not Who You Want" is mentioned as the leading track on this EP and it's probably the nicest one, but the others are also extremely fine.
A great EP to slowly start off your Thursday morning with a mesmerizing tune and a smile on your face. And don't worry if you're already stressed out at work, this will go great with Easter breakfast this weekend!
wrote 2 lovestories on this track, twice my fucking laptop died on me when i hit 'submit'. i'm done for tonight. it's a new track by one of my favourite bands of the last 12 months. enjoy. despite this fucked up machine i'm typing on, i'm still enjoying the tunes!
Celebrate the weekend with this 100% dancetrack. Original by Bag Raiders and remixed by Cassian. Both names mean very little to me, but I received this in the mail 4 weeks ago and I can't stop listening to it. That flute is addictive is f*ck! #haveagoodweekend
Just the right music to hear when midnight passed by over an hour ago and the week has been shit. too much work, too little free time to relax and definately no time to discover myself some new tunes (hence the silence @blog). But the good thing recently is that more and more artists seem to discover this blog, so my emailaccount is getting some action and it's always cool to check these things out.
Field of Wolves is Holly Bestic, an Australian/UK-based singer with a great jazzy voice and great tunes to support it. The vibe is brilliant and combined with her amazing voice this is a beauty for anytime of the day, but best enjoyed late at night. cheers!
With this song by Australian band Skipping Girl Vinegar, Spring has officially started. It's pumped, it's fun, it's danceable & it brings a smile on my face. Everyday has a great start when you sing along to this (and as a bonus, the video is good fun aswell)!
