27-04-2011: Bruce Peninsula - The Swimming Song

Just ace to have a song about swimming (the original is done by Loudon Wainwright), but this cover sounds really good. Bruce Peninsula are done recording their new record, but when one of their band members fell ill, they decided to put anything on hold. In the meanwhile, they've recently started the Bruce Trail Fire Sale. Which basically just means they'll share new music or covers every now and then untill the new album comes out. Good way to keep the hungry fans satisfied! The Swimming Song is a great and fun track, that is definately made for the summer. When i'll go swimming later this year, i'll be humming this all day long :)

26-04-2011: Family - Ava

Family is a little strange. But the sound they create on the 3 mini-EP's they've released so far is very interesting. The pure vocals and mesmerizing background vocals make this track Ava my favourite, but there's more where this came from. Check out their bandcamp-page to stream all the tracks. Potentially brilliant!

26-04-2011: Monday Morning Kick-Off [MM-KO] Lightwaves - Working All Day

The Monday Morning Kick-Off on a Tuesday morning? Sure. As Easter properly fuck's up any routine and for most people the week will start today with heading back to the office. To stay a little in de party-mood most of us experienced over the weekend, hear this great new track by Lightwaves. It had me playing Daft Punk this weekend, do you need any more reason to hear it? i don't think so either..

25-04-2011: Gobble Gobble - Boring Horror

Great party-track by Gobble Gobble (which is a pretty ace name for a band).

22-04-2011: Black Light Dinner Party - Older Together

The weekend is coming closer, i can almost taste it and this great 1st track done by 4 producers teaming up is a good way to get into in the mood. Black Light Dinner Party have made a great summer track that's gonna be around for all of the upcoming summer months if you ask me. It's sweet vocals and hypnotizing beats and synths make this a track you cannot sit still too (and so i'm dancing around my kitchen at 8.30 in the morning, hello neighbours :)..

21-04-2011: Dry The River - Bible Belt

Another slow and melancholic track today, i don't know why, but so far the week is all about these kind of songs for me. Oh well, Dry The River just wrote a perfect song with 'Bible Belt'. If you like it, definately check out the live version done at Abbey Road Sessions. I'd say they fit in nicely in between Fleet Foxes and Mumford & Sons, but who am i..?

20-04-2011: Album Matt Stalker & Fables - The Man Who Said This Died of Alchemy

This was released on April 1st after haven been worked on for 10 years. I'm not sure how they managed to do that, but the result in incredibly beautiful. Matt Stalker is a singer/songwriter that writes beautiful small songs, best enjoyed when you're staring out the window from a moving train or just staring in general, with a nice cup of coffee like i'm doing this morning. Great little record!

19-04-2011: Dark Dark Dark - Daydreaming

Just Friday i discovered Dark Dark Dark and although that post contained a link to their website where you can download 'Daydreaming' for free i decided to post this, because it's beautiful. And beautiful music needs to be heard.

18-04-2011: Noah and the Whale – Tonight’s the Kind of Night

2nd single of Noah and the Whale's latest album 'Last Night On Earth'. Great catchy tune to end the day with & have yourself some sweet dreams to start another fine day tomorrow..

18-04-2011: Wild Beasts - Smother

This was released on Record Store Day last Saturday as a b-side and is not included on the new album by Wild Beasts. One can only guess to why not, but to be honest i cannot think of any reason not to put this in your album. It is painfully beautiful and i am almost constantly looping this over and over again with Julia Stone. Music is a good friend on days like these, and tonight my dear friend Music comforted me this great song.

18-04-2011: Julia Stone – Winter On The Weekend

So i missed the Monday Morning Kick-Off this morning due to a huge fucking headache/hangover. Both are long gone now, but my head and heart are in the mood for slow soft and sweet music. Julia Stone writes beautiful music with disturbing lyrics and this is probably the best example for her fine work. Breathtaking!
