20-07-2015: Track Major Leagues - Someone Sometime

Australian 4-piece Major Leagues is releasing an EP later this year, "Someone Sometime" is the 1st single taken from that EP and sounds like perfect Summerdays.

17-07-2015: Album ODAWAS - Black Harmony

Black Harmony by ODAWAS is such an addictive record. This has been on constant replay for days now. I'm taking it with me everywhere I go and listen to it from the early morning untill the very last minute before I fall asleep.

Coming from a period in both our lives where failed marriages, affairs, drug and alcohol abuse and a fatalistic dose of existential dread were leading us into something of a madman's revelry. The lyrics weave these personal moments in through various fantastic narratives about star-crossed soldiers finding perfection in the desert, Prohibition-era murder and espionage, crime scene investigations in pastoral meadows, and finding soft comfort in the hallucinatory madness of Nebraska. Themes of being lost, betrayal, murder and madness are given candy-coated arrangements of Americana and atmospheric electronics. A spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down, as they say.
Isaac Edwards (Odawas)

Even the description of this record is poetic. Maybe not a Must-Have of the Month record, but definately a Must-Hear Record for every (regular) visitor of this little blog. A great start of the next 5 years of music sharing, wouldn't you agree?

Great. Fucking. Record.

14-07-2015: Track Cheshire and the Cat - Countdown

A party song to celebrate 5 years of Plug in, Baby! with Cheshire and the Cat.

12-07-2015: Album RELIC - The 13th Floor

this freshly released hiphop-record has a great flow, a pure sound, dope lyrics and that's just about all you need to create a great hiphop-record. RELIC's style is laidback, oldschool and that makes this a record that'll fit right in with everything I've always enjoyed about hiphop. I've been playing this everyday since the day it was released (little over a month ago) and I'll be enjoying it for a long time to come. Best indie hiphop-record of the year so far.

11-07-2015: Track Songhoy Blues - Soubour (live)

10-07-2015: Track Nate Ruess: Take It Back

Nate Ruess has released his 1st solo record and this is one fine song taken from this album with the cute title Grand Romantic.

10-07-2015: Track Ed Prosek - California

This song by Ed Prosek is 2 years old, but still precious and beautiful.

09-07-2015: Track Benjamin - Find My Way (acoustic)

This is insanely beautiful. Hear more acoustic songs by Benjamin. Totally worth it.

08-07-2015: Track Landlady - I'm Afraid

From their new EP Heat.

03-07-2015: Must-Have of the Month Juleah - Melt Inside The Sun

Last month Juleah released a beautiful Summer-record. Dreamy softrock, made for those long Summer nights that seem to last forever. She brings the sun, warm and sweaty. She makes it shine just for you and me and she'll make sure we'll never cold again. Even when it's late in the evening and the sun is long gone; Juleah's music is warm, joyfull and full of love. Or maybe it's just me being in love. Because I am. I am in love with this record.

02-07-2015: EP New Hansen - Above the Basement

This is such an epic 5-track release. I wanted to sing along to some of the songs the 1st time I heard them, without knowing the words of course. New Hansen is an Amsterdam-based music producer and this album is a melancholic and happy release. With echos from the 60s and 70s. A little psychedelic every now and then and the Beatles are always near.
Best example: A Long And Happy Ending.

I. Love. This.
