We are now halfway 2016, so it's a good time to look back. Why these? Cause these records are still being played, every single day. The blog's favorites of 2015: Froth - Bleak Clark - Clark She Past Away - Narin Yalnızlık U.S. Girls - Half Free Of Montreal -... Continue reading

Due to lack of new discoveries, time and inspiration I wasn't very active as of late. This has got my juices flowing though. Saw a show from this guy on London Calling, Amsterdam almostt 2 years ago. This confirms what I've been suspecting. D.D Dumbo is a guy to keep... Continue reading

Discovered this band today and I must say, this is amazing. It's a lightfooted, rock 'n roll track that is definitely growing on me. Love the backline-bass and the dream-poppy vocals. It's a rock 'n roll theme in disguise. Brave Babe - Plastic Skateboard Album: Electric Friends (2015) Label: Hearts... Continue reading

A genre I fell in love with during my time on high school. And.. this is one of the best approaches to it. For fans of: Pete and the Pirates, yes, a name out of the archives! This record is released soon and will be one the indie-releases to watch... Continue reading

This is one of those songs that just breathe rock and after two spins, you can scream along. 'I've got nothing left to prove!' And that is nice sometimes. (Read: easy start after a few weeks, unintentionally, without new music) Mansions - Climbers Record: Doom Loop (2013) Label: Clifton Hotel... Continue reading

Still had this in the tank. Lovely show, with a small crowd unfortunately. But hey everyone enjoyed themselves. Ethan is one of those few true musicians left. By the way, Jordan Klassen ended his tour in the Café of Doornroosje and did a nice job as a starter. There is... Continue reading

Minimalistic Californian Hiphop-Indie crossover. Enjoying this, being laidback in a chair. A (small) hit in the making! Hippie Sabotage - Devil Eyes Album: Providence (2016) Continue reading

Best song from the album. period. It's a good second by the way, but it does not meet up to its expectations. (Especially, since the first one is legendary in my eyes/ears). Savages - Surrender From: Adore Life (2016) Label: Cool live version: Continue reading

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
