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.

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

Obviously the biggest and most delightful thing to read. Diiv is changed. They have moved in the direction of the Dream-pop legacy that was awaiting them all this time. Z.C. Smith sounds genuine, polite and honest. Cheers DIIV for another great one. By the way, the dopamine-titled tracks and records... Continue reading

Us, indie-lovers and alternative freaks, we like to claim a band, especially when you are the first one (in your social network) to discover a band. I am no exception. I am a proud of my long lasting relationship with Tame Impala, which I have on many occasions claimed to... Continue reading

(See right side of your screen) Without me even noticing it, Earth Mk. II is undebatably my favourite dutch garage/noise/new wave (that corner) band. And they have been releasing new material bit by bit for the last few weeks. Check out their other videos as well,cause they include a compilation... Continue reading

It took a while, but everything remotely similar to Joy Division is to my liking. This is no exception. It is not remote from Joy Division either. Still, this band took a complete turn from their previous material, so be sure to check that out as well. This band is... Continue reading

Another issue of the things I've noticed on the web that are worth telling. 1. Finally, with capital F. Two artists and their collab, have been the gossip for years now, ever since they both ran in to some success. And now, ladies and gentlemen it is Finally happening. Nils... Continue reading

1. On many forums, blogs, websites, the Soulwax remix of Tame Impala's Let It Happen, A masterpiece even for Kevin Parker's standards, has incited people to 'demand' a Let It Happen Remix Album. All I can say is: I hope it is going to come true. 2. Deerhunter's new material... Continue reading

Got this in my mailbox today and I like it. Very subtle song by Heyward Howkins, with a honey-sweet voice. Somehow it has some sort of classic soul feeling to it. The sun is out on this sunday morning and this is great music to spend it with. Heyward Howkins... Continue reading

With many great releases on the rise this year, Julia Holter's release might not be one of the main things in everyone's agenda. But keeping in mind that her last release was still largely and in most places underrated, I would like to argue that this is definitely one of... Continue reading

I read a lot about music, I like to read a lot about music. But it's hard to find a creative way of sharing that with you. Cause simply sharing news that has appeared on the web that is already filled with many blogs is unnecessary. So consider me your... Continue reading

This has been doing particularly well on my channel, without any promotion yet. The soulful dreamy tracks on this record come in plenty and this is a highlight. Combine that sound with a raw voice, of someone who is not sure about the topic of conversation either, the track becomes... Continue reading

Today I listened to a complete version of Vega Intl. Night School, Neon Indian's 2015 release and it's fascinating. Chill-wave king Neon Indian seems to have outdone himself, with a record that will echo through mainstream genres for the next year, with potential remixes, club anthems and catchyness for many...
