This hauntingly beautiful and slightly depressing song is one of my highlights from 2015. And the corresponding record will definitely end up in the list. Majical Cloudz is just such a special artist to me, his tracks makes me really melancholic. On this second time around, he is even slower... Continue reading

Absolutely beautiful piece of modular synthesizer work. Bissonette is a new name for me, and i found out there is much more. While this is from his end-of-2015 release, his previous records have been received very positively as well. This should be a soundtrack for a movie, truly fascinating electronic... Continue reading

It was a while when I posted a dreamy track. So here is one. Discovered this today, scanning through Youtube channels. This is from Hardly Art Records. I particularly love the acoustic guitar, which has disappeared from dreampop recently. And the vocals are just right, nothing forced, just a natural... Continue reading

Today I have been listening to the Rangeline record by a newcomer, for me at least: Joel Levi. This americana singer-songwriter has just released this record, his first and is impressing in the states. Although he sometimes tends to the poppy-side, this is fine on this record since he shows...

Their grungy offbeat sound, i recognized it immediately. and they seem to have picked up a little bit of Parquet Courts flavor or is that my imagination? Anyway it's good to know The Thermals are back: one of my favourite indie bands from a while ago. (or when I was... Continue reading

Yeasayer is a band that does not compare well to others. A new record is coming soon and now we have a video of their first single I Am Chemistry. The track is all over the place, moving from style to style, with an intermezzo that holds euphoria like we... Continue reading

Nobody knows what it brings, 2016, but music will always trigger my senses. For me music-wise, I hope for some great DJ-nights, cool festivals and goosebumps on my arms during many shows. My favorite prospect is the new Savages album, but most of all I hope for new diamonds in... Continue reading

For Captured Tracks followers, among which I include myself these days, it is going to be an action-packed spring. Not only does this label contain Wild Nothing (which has a release coming up in February and I predict it is going to be special) & The Soft Moon. DIIV, Charlie... Continue reading

Many people are asking (at the end of 2015), "hey, what was your favourite record from 2014 again?" As i've spent much time listening records last year, an extensive top 50 is on this blog. And here are the best 4, (top-3s are cliché) I have talked and highlighted these... Continue reading

This is posted as the video of the week because..... This is a band I've come to like ever since they opened for Balthazar early november. I like videos with just the band playing in a certain flavorful setting in this case a Sunrise with a waking city on the... Continue reading

There has been absolutely no talk about this music whatsoever in my scene. it's from 2015 though. Need some weekend music on the monday? here it is! FUNK! Dam Funk - Free Album: STFU (EP)(2015) Label: Stones Throw Records Continue reading

After listening to this for a couple of months, i am out of reasons why this should not deserve more credit than it is getting right now. Apparently everywhere it does pop up, it's getting 5 out of 5. One of the great unknowns this year, since in my region,... Continue reading

My favourites of last month. A month full of returns, beautiful lyrics and most of all emotional music. Newcomers (for me at least) : The Dandelion, Julien Baker and Fossa are probably what I will remember this month by, still it is packed with songs that I will play into... Continue reading

Another one act that is up for abig year in 2016. It just doesn't get more typical, when it comes to American indie right now, but if this doesn't cheer you up, I don't know what will... Anyway this happy pop-punk duo deliver energetic tracks and people are catching on... Continue reading

Wolf Alice was on Dutch national television a few days ago and gave a good show in Amsterdam as well. Still my relationship with the band is a peculiar one. Some tracks I really like, but when I saw them live a long while ago, they didn't impress me. The... Continue reading

Stumbled on music from these guys lately and since their names are so 'related' their stories are completely different. A small-time electronics producer against a acid-lounge phenomenon (LP Tourist (2000)being a really special record. I predict that both are going to make some noise in 2016. The new Germany Germany... Continue reading

Wild Nothing is an artist I sometimes can't stop raving about. I feel lucky I was able to witness Jack Tatum and his guys deliver magic live. This new record coming out February 2016 seems to be another milestone for the band. Having further developed their sound and the next... Continue reading

Suddenly, when I looked over an old Connan record, I thought: "What is this guy up to now?" And so I typed his name into the youtube search bar and voilá. Connan Mockasin has released an Ep in collab. with Dev Hynes. And it's good old Connan all over again.... Continue reading

and i'm getting more and more excited. a few tracks are available from the record that is coming out spring 2016. The band has changed its sound dramatically, (something all good bands do, duh) the creeping darkness from Shulamith has left the building. There is more folk, more dreampop to... Continue reading

New Music, Old Footage Just wanted to tell you guys about this amazing channel on Youtube. Their slogan says it all. A beautiful selection of tracks with homemade videos, mostly consisting of old (& relatively unknown movies) or footage. The results are melancholic and heartwarming. An example & one of...

So my first job as a small-time dj is done. Last Wednesday I played some records in advance and after the Balthazar-show in Doornroosje, Nijmegen, which was, as usual, a great one to witness. For those who don't know Balthazar, here's my favorite track from the show Even though they... Continue reading
