30-04-2014: Track Wooden Arms - December

Fuck, this is beautiful. "December" is part of a double A-side single by Wooden Arms, together with another great song called "Tide" and I have just ordered myself a copy, because this is beyond breathtaking. Think Lost In The Trees with even more magic. Great song! Great great song! Really great great song! You get the idea, right..?

28-04-2014: Monday Morning Kick-Off Seryn - Disappear

New music by one of the finest bands I've discovered since this blog started. Their album This Is Where We Are is over 3 years old, but high on my all-time favs-list. This new song "Disappear" is taken from their new album, which has no releasedate or title for now, but it makes me very anxious to hear it. Incredibly good song, perfect to kick of your week. Make it a good one!

27-04-2014: Track WOODS - With Light And With Love

Epic Sunday-morning jam clocking a little over 9 minutes. "With Light And With Love" is from the new WOODS album With Light And With Love, released earlier this month.

24-04-2014: Track Powder Blue - Run

I've got a headache the size of a Kiss-rockshow, but this psychrock-track by Powder Blue is just what I need to clear the thick black clouds from my skull.

19-04-2014: Track Big Gigantic - Blue Dream

Big Gigantic. Here they are again! Another track from their recently released album The Night Is Young, because it's so freaking brilliant! This has more sax than Touch The Sky and that makes it even better for dancing. Saturday night music like it should always have been.

17-04-2014: Album Ghost Twins - Never Fear Total Failure

Last year Ghost Twins released a double A-single that I shared with you on a fine Sunday morning. This week they released their debut album Never Fear Total Failure and it's every inch as great as the double A-single from last year and a whole lot better. In this particular case, more = more and more = better.

It's funny how a seriously depressing title as "You Will Always Be Lonely" sounds like a really fun song. Great beat, up-tempo song & lyrics that are really easy to remember. This is a festival banger waiting to happen.

The entire record clock a little over 38 minutes in 9 songs, which is not a lot if you take notice of the earlier post and their great song "Dream On / Dream Off" lasting almost up to 8 minutes. But the song is not included on the album. I have to admit I was a little surprised not to find it on here, especially since the other A-side "Unknown Animal" is present and in my humble opinion that was (and still is) slightly less impressive back in October. It fits greatly within the general sound of the album, which is now accepted as Electronic Experimental Indie in my book.

The only moment this great album slows down a little, but it does it in style and just as the other 8 songs, this is a great song.

If you needed one song to describe this album, this is it! The lyrics aswell as the sound represent this album perfectly and it also helps how the title is included almost like a mantra near the end of it.

This is without a doubt one of the finest records of 2014. This is not just a great fucking record, this is even better. This is one of those albums that's gonna stay with me for a long time and it is definately the best record I've heard so far this year.

edit: for some reason all the tracks included here have the album title, they are all different songs though. Be sure to listen to them all.

15-04-2014: Track Arkells - Never Thought That This Would Happen

Based on something a lot of people will be able to relate to "Never Thought That This Would Happen" is a great song; it is catchy as hell, has funny lyrics and even a string quartet. This is 5 minutes of pure fun. Great song by Arkells!

13-04-2014: Album Zachary Lucky - The Ballad Of Losing You

It's been months since I've added this album to my favorites. I had just listened to it once and quickly decided I wanted to spent more time with it. As weeks turned into months I fell in love with Zachary Lucky's deep and slow voice, the sad lyrics and the mellow country feel of this album.

This album can be so bitter I can almost taste it. A line such as 'One too many songs about what might've been' from "More Than Enough Road" is just one example of the sorrow that drives this record forward. "Merry Month of May" is just as sad and bluesy, but despite all the pain there's a certain lightness to Zachary Lucky's music.

With an album title such as The Ballad Of Losing You it's no surprise this is a somewhat dark and mellow record, with that typical country feel to it and the lyrics set around losing the love of your life, one way or the other. What makes this album so good is his low and easy voice, taking you on a journey through his pain, without making it sound desperate of cheap.

Zachary Lucky wants to tell us all about losing the one we love, an experience most of us will have been through at least once in our lives by now. He tells a beautiful story, wrapped in compelling songs that urge you to listen and soak it all in. I am flat broke for the next 10 days, but hopefully my next paycheck leaves me some room to order this great record. After all of the months I've been listening to it, I'm far from done with it.

Great. Fucking Record.

10-04-2014: Track White Denim - At Night In Dreams

Great track by White Denim from their new album Corsicana Lemonade.

08-04-2014: Track Deloreans - As Long As It's You

New Deloreans-music is always a reason to celebrate. With the announcement of a new album in August and the first single "As Long As It's You" it's save to say last week was a great week. And things got even better when I heard this song, because it's already one of the best songs I've heard all year. The Deloreans have a unique sound and they write great songs. I have never heard a bad note from them and I doubt I ever will. This is addictive as fuck! Is it August already?!

07-04-2014: Monday Morning Kick-Off Big Gigantic - Touch The Sky

Monday Morning Kick-Off with a huge Saturday night track: Big Gigantic's "Touch The Sky". A pumping dance track from their recent release The Night Is Young. Eight tracks that all hold a bit of Skrillex, but more joyfull. Less nightly terror, more Summer fun. Shift into overdrive with this track on the first few hours of a new week. Have a good one!
