13-09-2011: Jordan Klassen - Go To Me

Great song by personal "hero-to-be" Jordan Klassen, who is working on his album (to be released March 2012), but has shared this 1st track with the world. And based on this 1 track, this might be a fantastic album. It starts out soft and easy, but more sounds and instruments are added as the song goes along, adding new layers to it, yet remaining the same sweet song it started out as. Eventually even horns join in for the outro, and once it's done, all you wanna do is start over again. Absolute brilliance!

12-09-2011: Monday Morning Kick-Off [MM-KO] FOE - Deep Water Heartbreaker

A little late, but i was gone for the weekend and arrived home very tired and a little sick. After some sleeping and rumbling around the house, my Monday has finally started a little bit. Better late than never, check out this weeks Monday Morning Kick-Off by FOE, who was here before with her Spring cassette-EP. Now she's back with 2 new tracks, of which Deep Water Heartbreaker is just really good. It's more smooth, but still with a little edge to it, i predict greatness in her future.

10-09-2011: The Magician ft. Jeppe - I Don't Know What To Do

Being in a little party-mood after that fine Justice-track this morning, let us continue with this 90s based dance-track by The Magician. This track once again shows that we're on our way to a 90s revival, this takes me back to dancing at school party's, sneaking booze in to our lockers & secretly drinking in the hallways. Pretending we're drunk as fuck after sharing a 0.75l-bottle of something extremely sweet and with only 5% alcohol in it with 8 people. But it was good, and it was fun. Just like this track.

10-09-2011: Justice - Audio, Video, Disco

Justice is releasing their new album in October and the 1st single is also the title track, called Audio, Video, Disco. This week the video was also released and although it's not that special is does add a little extra to it, making it a fine track to start off the weekend with.

08-09-2011: EP Air Review - American's Son EP

Air Review makes that nice romantic folky music that we've been hearing a lot of lately, due to the great succes of Mumford & Sons, who have either inspired a lot of bands or have paved the way for others to follow in their trail towards becoming the next big thing. While waiting for something new from M&S, Air Review does a good job at taking the stage for them. This "American's Son EP" consists of 4 great tracks, that deserve to be played over and over again. They definately have their own sound, which is more melodic, a little more powerfull and less melancholic. And it works very well. This is one of the finest EPs i've heard this year, and i've heard so many great EPs already.. It's a little unclear to me when and how this is gonna be released properly, but i hope they will; it's a definate-buy in my book.

08-09-2011: Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds - AKA... What A Life!

The 2nd single from Noel Gallagher's new album is called AKA... What A Life! and will be released this weekend, but is already up for order on his website. It's not as special as the 1st single, but it's a good tune. And with those 2 tracks in mind, i'm becoming more and more interested in the entire album. That'll have to be pretty damn good!

05-09-2011: Coeur De Pirate - Wicked Games (Weeknd cover)

Coeur De Pirate was among the 1st fine things i discovered when 2011 had just started. A year that has seen the rise of The Weeknd, although so far i have not spend a word on this band. Who knows what will come though, now that i've heard Coeur De Pirate record this fantastic cover of The Weeknd's Wicked Games. It is undoubtfully the talent of this great singer that makes this an unforgettable performance, but i am curious about the Weeknd now (i've tried it before and was not really into the sound..), for now i'll continue to enjoy this cover, it's motherfucking good.

05-09-2011: Monday Morning Kick-Off [MM-KO] Gross Magic - Sweetest Touch

Another Monday, another Monday Morning Kick-Off. Gross Magic is a UK-band about to release their debut EP "Teen Jamz" in October, and this cool track is a great introduction to them ánd the week. A fine way of getting up & getting out to go to work in a few minutes. Have a good one!

04-09-2011: EP Rigoletto - Prodigal Again

Rigoletto is an oldschool rockband in my book. Their 5-track EP "Prodigal Again" reminds me of the 90s rock music i listened to, inspired by classmates & friends who had their own bands and were more into rock music than me (i was a top40-lover, i must admit). I got tapes and cd's on a regular base and these songs really take me back in a good way. The 90s are slowly reviving, also thx to the 20th anniversary of Nevermind, but must of the new material coming out being inspired by those days are not even close to being as good as the original stuff. Rigoletto does it well on this EP and does it best on the last track Sugar. Which is amazingly good and a great intro to this band and their free EP.

02-09-2011: EP Haruko - Bird In The Snow

Despite the little Summer-vibe we had going on today, this week had an Autumn/Winter-feel to it. And with the Fleet Foxes playing these last few days, i was ready for snow, frozen fingers and red wine. Coming across Haruko's EP "Bird In The Snow" was an easy match made in heaven, just based on the title, but the beautiful music has completed my love for this 6-track little folkrecord with 6 perfectly crafted songs. I would like to continue about how i can see the snowflakes on my kitchen-window, but Haruko has done a fine job at describing this EP in 2 lines: This is an EP which I recorded in two cold winter days in a tiny room in the north of Germany. In front of a little window and a candle on it's sill. I can close my eyes and picture this, listening to the songs & feel perfectly warm inside, caught by the beauty of the music.

01-09-2011: Angel Olsen - Creator, Destroyer

right through the soul, so beautiful. Angel Olsen has an amazing voice & sings beautiful songs with nothing but a guitar. She has released a cassette according to Pitchfork, but it's not easy to find any data on this girl. Nontheless, this is simply beautiful.
