27-09-2015: Album Phoenix City Retaliators - Phoenix City Retaliators

No time for words, we're too busy dancing. This is Rotterdam based Ska band Phoenix City Retaliators, their motto is; you cannot stop a running tree. I get that. I think.

23-09-2015: Track Mieke - Sleeping Alone

Mieke has just released her Mieke EP and opening track 'Sleeping Alone' is such an addictive song. A beautiful soft and lovely tune; guaranteed sweet dreams when played just before you close your eyes at night. Sleep well, my friends.

21-09-2015: Track Tom Tukker - Barely Here

This is Tom Tukker, a brand new talent from Amsterdam releasing a video trilogy. "Barely Here" is number one; a haunting beauty.

21-09-2015: Monday Morning Kick-Off Woof! Woof! Ridicule - Brace

Another great song by Woof! Woof! Ridicule, perfect for Monday mornings. Have a great week!

20-09-2015: 2012 Paul Federici - Fighting a Setting Sun

Paul Federici released a beautiful record a few years ago called Now and Then and he's finally back with a new song called Fighting a Setting Sun. It's a beautiful song that feels like coming home after a long weekend in the rain.

You are soaked to the bone, put down your suitcase and take a deep breath. You take off your wet clothes, take a steaming hot shower and pour yourself a burning hot cup of coffee. You sit down on your favorite chair, take a look around, ignore all the things you need to do and just sit there for a few minutes. Feeling perfectly warm, welcome and at home. That's what this song feels like (to me). Two hundred seconds of perfection.

19-09-2015: Album Greg Drummond - Drive

Bruce Springsteen-fans gather around; this is Greg Drummond. He is Bruce's unofficial child and will do the one thing that needs to be done to convince you and everyone else of his talent: he will write great music and release beautiful records.

Four years ago Greg released a great album called Walking Man, and in June of this year he finally graced us with a follow-up record. Drive is the record of a musician who has grown 4 years. His voice, the songs, the lyrics; everything is on a higher level. And this is coming from me, having absolutely loved (and still do) Walking Man.

But let's just forget about Springsteen. Let's forget about Walking Man. Forget about everything you know and have ever heard. Just listen to Drive and enjoy the hell out of it.
Above all, this is a great record.

16-09-2015: Track Villainy - SYRIA

The new album Dead Sight by Villainy releases in 2 days and this is just what I needed to get my blood pumping again.

15-09-2015: Album Kill County - Broken Glass In The Sun

This is such a beautiful record. Is it Americana, country, folk music or a little bit of all. I don't know, I don't care, either. Fuck the labels, this is just a great album. You can feel the emotions, hear the pain and the songs scratch a little deeper into your soul everytime this record plays. It's raining outside. It's raining inside, too.

Personal favorites: Bad Gasoline, Elijah.

14-09-2015: Monday Morning Kick-Off Media Jeweler - Autopilot

Now this is what I call waking up music! This is Media Jeweler.

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.
