10-04-2011: The Submarines - Birds

After waking up really early this Sunday morning i went on browsing the webs and found myself over a dozen unknown songs. With yesterday's newspapers, a good cup of coffee and all of these songs on constant rotation i sat in the early sunshine for over 2 hours. The song that stood out among the other fine tunes (i could've just added almost all of them as a perfect Sunday's Playlist and maybe i will somewhere later on..) was 'Birds' by The Submarines. It fits the Summervibe i got from this perfect Sunday start (perfectly ruined right after i left that sunshine cuz of my modem fucking my connection up again or my precious laptop ding on me..) and is doing everything right. great tune, great lyrics (she wants to take me home tonight :). Perfect track!

09-04-2011: Beasty Boys - Make Some Noise

Finally some new Beasty Boys tunes and it's amazingly cool! The new album is being released early May and the 1st single is already making it's way through the webs. Make Some Noise is oldschool Beasty boys without being just oldschool, if that makes any sense.. This 1st track makes clear they are still very much alive & kinkin' and if the album is as good as this we are in for a TREAT!

09-04-2011: Album TV On The Radio - Nine Types Of Light

3 days till release but we can finally hear the new TV On The Radio album Nine Types Of Light via VPRO Luisterpaal. I was in bed trying real hard to fall asleep untill i heard this.. F*ck sleep, i'm enjoying myself too much with this! Check out the movie they made for the album below, interesting stuff..

08-04-2011: Reading Rainbow – Cover The Sky

It took me a few times hearing this before i could enjoy it, mainly because the way the female part of Reading Rainbow sings reminded me of U2's song 'Numb'. Which is a great song (YouTube it, I'm too lazy to do it for you), despite (or maybe, thanks to) the toneless voice of The Edge, and the same goes for this. The more i hear it, the more i like it! It's almost hypnotic, especially with the guitar 'hammering' near the end. Great Song!

07-04-2011: Album Happy Camper

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.

06-04-2011: EP Mighty Oaks - Mighty Oaks EP

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!

06-04-2011: EP Alden Penner - Odes To The House

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.

05-04-2011: Nirvana-Night

To be honest, om April 5th there is only one band to rule the stereo.

05-04-2011: EP Black Books - An Introduction To​.​.​.

04-04-2011: Timber Timbre - Woman

Timber Timbre is releasing their new album tomorrow and this sinister song 'Woman' is a dark, yet catchy preview on the album-release. I'm curious how this sounds throughout an entire album, and i'm hoping to find out tomorrow..

04-04-2011: Monday Morning Kick-Off [MM-KO] Two Wounded Birds - All We Wanna Do

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!
