14-07-2014: sch 4th Anniversary

Today was a good day. A great day. For personal reasons, for music reasons. I have cried a little, I have laughed a lot. And will continue doing both for the hours to come. Another year has passed, great music has been shared through this blog and hopefully touched your heart, like it has mine. Let's sing and dance, think happy thoughts and discover more great music together for the next 12 months to come. Let's celebrate in style!

13-07-2014: Track Leagues - Spotlight

Great tune from a live set at The Smokestack by Leagues.

12-07-2014: Track Zola Blood - Grace

Saturday music by Zola Blood. This is Addictive. As. Fuck.

10-07-2014: Album Building Pictures - West Orchard

John Gribbin is an Irish guy living in Brooklyn. He sings song as Building Pictures and released his debut album West Orchard last November. Classic singer-songwriter stuff. We've all heard it before, but there's something in his voice that makes this album irresistible. That and a handfull of beautiful songs makes this record very much worth hearing. I've been hooked for weeks on "In Her Veins". These last few weeks I just click play and listen to the entire record, while I sing along with John. He comforts me, tells me great stories, makes me laugh and he makes me cry. All in less than 40 minutes. Beautiful record!

Fav. tracks: In Her Veins, I'm All Ears, Closing Doors.

08-07-2014: Track Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly - Remember

Highly addictive dance track by Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly.

02-07-2014: Must-Have of the Month Bridie Jackson & The Arbour - New Skin

The album title for the 2nd Bridie Jackson and the Arbour fits the music perfectly. The band has evolved themselves massively and taken on a new skin with their 2nd record. They have succesfully shifted their sound to become easier on the ears without loosing that special something that makes Bridie Jackson and the Arbour completely unique.

Although the album is softer and lighter, it still sounds dark and romantic with a haunting twist. Since their (extremely beautiful) debut record the band has grown a lot. The harmonies of their voices are working together on a higher level and the band sounds more like a team. The album didn't hit me as hard as the previous record did, but I am too familair with their sound for them to surprise me (unless they release a death metal record with dance beats next year).

This new record is a huge step forward for the band without loosing anything from that unique sound that makes Bridie Jackson and the Arbour one of a kind. Each song takes my breath away and I can easily listen to this day and night for weeks to come. The best thing a great band like Bridie Jackson and the Arbour could do was release a record like this. I am so much in love with it, I take it with me everywhere I go.

Beautiful. Beautiful. Record.

28-06-2014: Track Nils Frahm - Says (Vessels remix)

One highly addictive weekend track.

26-06-2014: Album The Coppertone - The Bakery

MY favorite rockchick released an EP exactly one month ago and I've been listening to it everyday since then. Four great songs, all heavily addictive. "Young Blood" was already a banger of a song, but the new songs are all pure blues rock songs with a female twist and Red aka The Coppertone has an amazing voice. This record, like most blues rock, is best enjoyed loud. But enjoy it, you will. I'll guarantee it.

There's not much to say about some records, you just turn up your stereo and enjoy the fuck out of it! Just like I've been doing for the last 31 days, just like I'm doing now! Great EP, can't wait for a full album of this talented musician that is finally making new waves for herself.

25-06-2014: Track Little Tybee - Don't Quit Your Day Job

New Little Tybee music! Can this day get any better?! I don't think so!
Great song, cool video. Great to get a look at the people behind For Distant Viewing, one of the finest records of 2013.

24-06-2014: Track Bridie Jackson & The Arbour - We Talked Again

Usually don't post videos for songs that have already been on the blog, but I'll gladly make an exception for Plug in, Baby!-sweethearts Bridie Jackson & The Arbour's video for "We Talked Again". Released about a month ago, pretty much around the time their beautiful second album New Skin was released. We'll get to that later, first have a look at this dramatic video and listen to the beautiful voices of one of the finest music revelations in years.

22-06-2014: Album John Moreland - In The Throes

This record is a little over a year old, but it's such a beauty it still deserves attention from us music lovers. John Moreland is singer-songwriter from Oklahoma who plays almost all instruments on this pure and warm americana folk record. This record is said to be his finest so far, I haven't listened to his previous recordings yet, but In The Throes is a beauty.

His slow sanded voice reminds of Bruce Springsteen. The slow, depressing songs ("Break My Heart Sweetly") have that old country-based broken-hearts theme. But there's also a lot of humor hidden inside of his music, John doesn't take himself too serious, it seems. "Nobody Gives a Damn About Songs Anymore" is a great song with an amazing short story inside. Both funny and a little dramatic.

In The Troes is a beautiful record. Stop reading, I'll stop typing anyway, and enjoy the record.
Favorite tracks: Blacklist, Break My Heart Sweetly, Gospel.
