12-09-2015: Track Blimp Rock - My Mind is a Shark

11-09-2015: Track Patrick James - Bugs

Taken from Patrick James' upcoming debut record, this is Bugs. Great song, beautiful lyrics.

11-09-2015: Track Sunshine & The Blue Moon - Lucy (Demo)

Now I want to go swimming in cold water.

10-09-2015: Album Luke Redfield - The Cartographer

The Cartographer is a great folk record by Luke Redfield. Soft and easy, with perfectly written lyrics. He describes people I'd love to meet, sings handcrafted songs about them and himself. It's easy to hear where his inspiration comes from, Luke Redfield is part of the alt-country music tradition that only finds itself in the outskirts of America. There's a quote on his website that describes this tradition and Luke's music perfectly:
Luke Redfield has been criss-crossing America for most of his life, taking up home in Texas, Colorado, Alaska, and as an intrepid drifter on the West Coast, where he washed dishes and sang for his supper.

This record was made for travelling, for staring out the window as the rain is pouring down. For not doing a damn thing at all, except for listening to this fine record.

Personal favorite: Find My Love in Roses.

07-09-2015: Track Cattle & Cane - Skies

Their debut album Home is almost here and this song is soo addictive. Just like everything this fine band has released so far, this song is beautiful and works best when listened to over and over again. The best video of 2014 was Dancing and if there was a shortlist for 2015 Skies would surely be on it.

06-09-2015: Track James Vincent McMorrow - Gold (solo version)

Anything James recordes is Gold.

05-09-2015: Track Bryan John Appleby - No One Knows

Another beautiful song taken from Bryan John Appleby's upcoming new record The Narrow Valley. This is the 2nd single, following up on Costanoan Bones and it sounds just as pretty. I can't wait to hear the entire record, set for release on November 13.

02-09-2015: Must-Have of the Month Ava Luna - Infinite House

Infinite House by New York-based quintet Ava Luna is a stunning work of art. It is unlike any other album I've heard so far this year. Spectaculair and original in all its glory. There are dozens of different musical flavours to be found on this record and they all taste great.

Opening track "Company" sets a fine standard combining a nice mellow poppy verse with the occasional explosion. Second track "Tenderize" had me singing along the 2nd time I heard it and I reckonize a new word everytime I hear it (almost done completing the lyrics). The fun takes off real fast and continues to amaze and blow away for the entire record right up untill the short final chords of "Carbon". And the only decent thing left to do after the final note dies down is press either repeat, click play again or turn over that beautiful piece of vinyl you've purchased, like I have.

This is guaranteed one of those albums I'll be listening to for the rest of the year and the years to come. Beautiful Album. Get it. Preferably now.

31-08-2015: Monday Morning Kick-Off Big Lonely - Dirty Clocks

Good morning world. Let's rock to the Dirty Clocks of Big Lonely.

28-08-2015: Album L'Orange - The Orchid Days

You need to scroll back a little to start this album at track one, because the whole record is so much better than just half of it. I seriously don't understand why artists would start a Bandcamp-playlist of their record halfway in, but they do. Very often.

The Orchid Days is a relaxing record that easily combines hip hop beats with a strong jazzy vibe and that makes for a great album. This is not in-your-face brutal hiphop, it kinda rolls along as you read a book, have a good conversation with a friend or just hang around relaxing. Because that's the one keyword for this record: relaxing. And I'm always in the mood for that..

27-08-2015: Track Post Louis - 30m Pool

Sweet and brand new song, 12 hrs old, 30m long, by Post Louis.
