This is perfect for a dull Friday-morning, when having a hard time waking up. Muse's new album is just what you were expecting, with a few extras. Like this Skrillex-like track. Loud & danceable, a little preview of what the weekend might be like, before we go to work on yet another rainy Friday. Good luck, my friends.
A Problem Like Maria describes her music as faerie folk, mermaid melancholia, and pixie pop. Especially 'faerie folk' is a beautiful and very suitable description, just give these 2 songs a listen. The other tracks on the album are somewhat 'difficult', but all together this is a beautiful 30-minute rollercoasterride, with a typical Halloween-interlude ('The owls are not what they seem').
You can hear and download ("pay-what-you-want") the entire 7-track album at http://aplm-music.thehai.org/. Beautiful and intense album, play it loud!
Los Jardines de Bruselas is an Argentinian one-man-bedroom-band, as he describes it himself. He has recently released this 8-track album and it's a fine evening album. Perfect for reading a book, candles lit, lights out. You might aswell skip the book and enjoy a great view or just stare into nothing with these dreamy songs. They tell amazing stories and are worth exploring within the depts of the music and the lyrics, all to be found on his website. Even "Butterflies", which has only 10 lines of lyrics, can make you sit and wonder throughout the song and those coming after.
Light and Glow is an inspirational, dreamy bedroom pop record that'll warm your heart and put your mind to work. A perfect combination.
Monday Morning Kick-Off with a dreamy six-minute song by Natureboy. Maybe it's because I hardly slept all night, but this is the perfect song for a numb Monday morning. I've been staring into the gray clouds all morning with nothing on my mind than this song. Have a good week!
Last year Jordan Klassen surprised me with the highly addictive Go To Me, and earlier this year he released a 4-track EP with closing track "Call and Answer". Another great song on heavy rotation for months already, so about time you'd hear it too.
The 3rd song from their Told You So-EP, released just last week. After Do You Hear and Evie, both also great songs. Which means there's at least 3 great songs on that 6-track EP. And guess what?! (What!? (I'll say it for you)..) Those other 3 songs are also very enjoyable!
My personal favourite is probably the somewhat slower closing track "Light Me Up", but there are 6 great songs on this EP, so that makes 6 good reasons to get yourself a (digital) copy via their website. Enjoy!
