31-12-2014: MixTape Best of 2014: The End

In a complete random order, here are the 20-something finest songs I've heard this year.
I did bend the rules a little on some of these songs, but they belonged to full records that were released this year, so I'm counting them as 2014-releases. My blog, my rules, right?
Have yourself a great hour with these beauties and come back once more before the end of the year, as I have a special 5-track list to share with you later today. For now. Have a great 24 final hours of 2014. Preferably with great music.

Adam Wedd feat. Mark C Walton - Daybreak
Jon Guerra - I Will Follow
Andy - Crazy

Juleah – the Verge
Bridie Jackson and the Arbour - Scarecrow
Thought Beneath Film – The Art of Giving Up

Customary – Left With Nothing
Joris Delacroix & Nancy - Take Your Time
Big Gigantic – Blue Dream
Royal Blood - Out Of The Black

Cold Weather Company – What Do I Do
Brady Toops – O For Grace
Ivory Hours – Hello Honey
Deep Sea Diver – Always Waiting

Flannel Graph – five foot three
Matt Stalker & Fables – Seasick/Spiderwebs
The Travelling Band – Passing Ships

30-12-2014: Album Hilbrandt - Haven

The last great album of the year I really wanted to share with you is Haven by Dutch folkband Hilbrandt. This is a rough and tough record that is linked to the water of the sea in sound, lyrics and spirit. If we were celebrating New Years Eve in my house this year, we would lit a few candles and only be listening to this haunting record, and it would slowly take over the souls of everyone present. We would all be changed into something from darker times by the time the clock hits midnight.
This is dark Dutch folk and I have no clue how it sounds if you can't understand the lyrics, but I encourage you to find out. It would be a waste not to give it a try, as this is one of the most expressive (Dutch) records of the year.

29-12-2014: Album The Brilliance - The Brilliance

Another great record from my to-do list is The Brilliance by The Brilliance. This is an intense and melancholic album with power, soul and everything beautiful. The name itself does a better job at describing this record than I ever could. Enjoy this beautiful work of art. Embrace it. Spend an evening in the dark with it. It'll light up your life. It did for me.

28-12-2014: Track Kite Trio - Harvest Moon

This is how calm life can be.

28-12-2014: Track Giacomo Fiore - Eve Beglarian: until it blazes

Great finish.

25-12-2014: Track Marika Hackman - O' Come, O' Come, Emmanuel

Merry X-Mas Everybody.

24-12-2014: Track Juleah - Beautiful For You

Juleah's record Entangled And Entwined will definately remain on my playlist for a long time to come. Her record is forever linked to my beautiful girlfriend and her music will always be the soundtrack to the Summer of 2014. This new song has that same relaxing surfer's style and is again addictive and haunting as fuck.

I can listen to her music forever.

23-12-2014: Track L'anarchiste - Rust

there's a place where I
saw mountains made of rust
that stretched and twirled about
and shook the heart from dust

Rust - L'anarchiste

23-12-2014: Track Rachel Thomasin - A Memory

Another century a changing memory
Uncanny lands that I have never seen
My eyes are blocked at night
But I can see so wide
Visions decay the moment that I wake

A Memory - Rachel Thomasin

22-12-2014: Album Late Guest At The Party - Repeater

Another record that has been on my To-Do-list for months now and never made it onto this blog. But when I think back, I must've listened (and danced) to it a lot over the last few months. Late Guest At The Party has released a killer album, great for playing really loud, singing and dancing along while getting some work done, either at work or around the house. Whatever the day brings, this record always brightens my mood. Pure fun.
