18-05-2011: EP Ruby Randall - Untill The Dust Settles

This just oozes candlelight. Ruby Randall has a very special, melancholic voice and the gentle songs she has crafted for her debut-EP are pure and beautiful. It's not easy to stand out in the 1000s of girls playing guitar singing your own songs, but for some reason Ruby does stand out. Usually those girls end up as Jewel-wannabees or try and fail, but Ruby Randall has succesfully dodged that bullet and has made a 4-track EP that sticks. That left me wanting more, because it is thát good!

18-05-2011: NewVillager - Lighthouse

Have discovered this song over a month ago and although at first it wasn't that special to me, recently i keep looking for it in my playlist. The vocals on this track by NewVillager are pure crazy in a good way & this song just always puts a smile on my face. The website is something special aswell, as there is no info on the music or people behind NewVillager, it's an art-blog with a link to the Lighthouse-track in several images, so i'm pretty sure it's linked with the artist/band behind this great track. Strange little mystery..

17-05-2011: Josh T. Pearson live sessions

There's a lot of Josh T. Pearson live music to be found on the internet after the recent weekend and luckely it found it's way to my inbox. For example there's a very good 4-song liveshow for Daytrotter he did just last Sunday morning. Read the fine writing Daytrotter's Sean Moeller did on this little liveshow & listen to Josh T. Pearson doing what he does so well on his latest album, but even more intense in this live session.

In a whole different setting, but at least as interesting and fantastic to hear (and watch) are 2 songs Josh played at the Mute Short Circuit last weekend. Doing covers of Erasure's A Little Respect and Moby's 'Natural Blues'. Both really great in a whole different way as the Daytrotter-session and all just adding to the respect this singer deserves.

17-05-2011: The Horrors - Sea Within A Sea

The Horrors are releasing their new album somewhere this summer and although there is no title yet, this is pretty little exciting news.. Although not feeling very well inside (yea, i'll stop whining now, i promise) i may have been spotted dancing to this earlier this morning. With this in the back of my head, i'm really looking forward to the follow-up of 2009's Primary Colours, which i didn't really enjoy at the time, but is getting more to me when re-listening it now.. at least this track is!

17-05-2011: Bon Iver - Calgary

So.. Over night the whole blogosphere went nuts over this new Bon Iver-track. As it's the 1st released song for the upcoming new album, set for end of June. I had to give it 4 spins this morning (not feeling that well, so got out of bed at 5 o'clock), but i'm getting into it now. Not ready yet to be saying i'm loving it, but i might there after a few more spins. Benefit of the doubt so far. I may get back on this one..

16-05-2011: Monday Morning Kick-Off [MM-KO] Givers - Up Up Up

Monday Morning Kick-Off with the Givers. Great fun track 'Up Up Up' really puts a smile on my face after again a very good weekend. I really don't feel like working todat, but with this tune, i will manage..

13-05-2011: The Airborne Toxic Event - Changing

First single of the new The Airborne Toxic Event-album called All At Once. A bit more poppy than fantastic breakthrough single Sometime Around Midnight (sweet acoustic version), but still very enjoyable!

12-05-2011: EP Vermilion Club - Home

Great little album by 2 students who write exciting little songs together. The early Thursday morning sunshine, coffee, the smell of clean laundry, newspaper, Vermilion Club: Perfect!

12-05-2011: Metronomy - The Look

There is something about this song that makes me think of another great tune i fell in love with earlier this year, unfortunately i have yet to figure out which song that was (is that a bad thing?). Anyway, 'The Look' is a great track from Metronomy's recently released new album The English Riviera. If you like this one song, check our their website to get another free song & visit the shop to purchase the full album.

11-05-2011: Titus Andronicus - No Future Part Three: Escape From No Future

This was on all the weblogs last week and the song is not really that special if you ask me. But the last minute or so is 1 great fucking party. It might also have to do with the silly arrogance the singer displays before the song starts, but this is a little too "wanna-be-cool" for me, that last minute though.. is ace!

09-05-2011: Album The Marzipan Man - The Marzipan Man Adventures

The Marzipan Man should've released his 2nd album today. At least, that's what it says on several websites, but so far not on his own.. Above are 2 fine songs from that new album, and the rest is at least as good, so definately go check that out at, where you can stream the entire album. This nice, surprising record may well be the 1st real summervibe-album i've heard this summer (which technically hasn't even started yet..)! Lovin' it!
