Happy Camper is a brand new project by Dutch multi-talent Job Roggeveen. He teamed up with a lot of great Dutch musicians and made an album that oozes fun. I've just discovered this band Monday night at OOR's 40th birthday party, but was immediately won over by the great songs & great atmosphere this band made for themselves & the many people listening. There's a whole idea behind it & that's fun to read about on the website, but it all comes down to the music and the music is just great! Definately one of the best things I've heard this year.
Mighty Oaks is a Berlin based folk duo and they've just released their 1st work together, called the 'Mighty Oaks EP'. The best way to describe the music is the way they say it themselves: "The music - full of guitar, banjo, mandolin, and vocal harmonies - is rooted in folk traditions, and driven by the sea, the woods, the mountains, and the seasons." Get this fine 4-track EP for just a few Euros on their website. Worth it!
A nice relaxing start of the Wednesday with this mini-EP from Alpen Penner. He's played in several bands before he went solo and 'Odes To The House' was just released 2 days ago. The funny thing about this record is that the Candian singer-songwriter went on a trip to Europe and eventually ended up recording these 4 songs in Utrecht and releasing them via Dutch record label Beep! Beep! Back up the Truck! You can get the album on his Bandcamp-page for only a few bucks or check out the link from the record label for a nice little package with artwork by Dutch graphic designer Esther Willering, which looks great and still almost costs you nothing.
Another Monday Morning Kick-Off, this time it's Two Wounded Birds with their fantastic track 'All We Wanna Do', to be released April 18th. Can't wait to hear the rest, because this is perfect for the Monday Morning!
Perfect follow-up for that new Fleet Foxes-track i just posted is this recently released album from Balto. welistenforyou introduced me to 'Self Portrait' which is very sweet, but the other tracks on this album are all from this same quality. I'm actually re-instating my PayPal-account for this one, i gotta have it!
SO3 has the honour of being this weeks Monday Morning Kick-Off with their new song 'Invincible'. Which is an incredible catchy tune that goes very well with the sunny weather we've been having this last week. It has the feel of Summer all over it & just makes you wanna dance around on the beach with a cold Corona.. and off to work i go.. *sigh*
This weeks Monday Morning Kick-off (this sounds better in Dutch actually; de maandagochtendplaat!) is from BOAT ft. John Roderick. Nice way to rock yourself into a new week AND a new season, cuz it's Spring and we should celebrate that with some great music! have a good week!
