17-08-2011: CANT - Believe

CANT is Chris Taylor's solo-project. Chris Taylor may or may not be known as part of Grizzly Bear and he is releasing is debut solo-album the end of September. Is this something to look forward to? Based on the only track i've heard so far: YES! Believe is a slow and smooth track that is simply irresistible, it has an 80s-feel, but in a good way. In a J Viewz-way, if i had to make any comparison. But f*ck comparing, this is just a fantastic track.

16-08-2011: Nerves Junior - Kale

This is such a great track and gets better everytime i hear it. Nerves Junior has made a dark, synthy obscure track that intrigues from the very 1st second and mesmerizes more and more as the song evolves untill it eventually explodes near the ending. It is one of the best twists in a song i've heard all year and this track is among the best in months. I've been listening to it for over 3 hours now and still can't get enough. Phenomenal!

15-08-2011: No Surrender ft. Tunde Adebimpe - Silver Hall

This is already a few months old, but i still play it and never shared it. Tunde Adebimpe (TV On The Radio) teams up with No Surrender, a Brooklyn based collective that makes music easily compared with TV On The Radio. Which makes this collaboration pretty logical, but No Surrender has more to it than just this track, visit their website to hear the entire album on which the TVOTR-influence is still within range, but No Surrender also gets more of a profile for themselves. I'm still exploring the album, but i might even consider listening to it more than TVOTR's Nine Types Of Light..

15-08-2011: Monday Morning Kick-Off [MM-KO] Clock Opera - Lesson No. 7

Another Monday, Another Kick-Off. This brand new track by Clock Opera is set to be released October 3rd, but can already be enjoyed via their soundcloud. It starts off nice and easy, but builts up the pace as it goes along. A perfect Monday morning song, as this is basically how Mondays work, we start off eeeeeaaaaaazzzzyyyy and slowly get back into the rhythm of the week. Have a good one!

14-08-2011: EP Kuhlamity - Indulgence

Nice hiphop-mixtape from unknown rapper Kuhlamity. This 9-track mixtape is a great exhibition of his skills, which are undoubtfully there. He's working on an album, with hopefully a little more consistency, but as this is a mixtape it makes sense that it's going in all directions. Most of the tracks are really good with Legacy (which you can hear above) and My Relation as absolute highlights. Click the pic to download the entire mixtape for free & show Kuhlamity some love through Facebook, he deserves it!

13-08-2011: [mixtape] Sunbath 2011

With all that rain falling this week a mixtape with a title like Sunbath 2011 is a little out of place, but it's all about the music anywayz, isn't it?
Fresh Company & Gossé de Skater are responsible for this great Summer mixtape, which they describe themselves in just 1 line: Expect some 60s and 70s rock, some smoothness, even some bossa nova, but mainly some summer vibes.

Couldn't find a tracklist, but most tracks are easy to reckonize, and the ones i didn't know fit in perfect with this sweet party collection. In 2 days it's time for the biggest party of my city, good Summer weather would be very welcome, but with this mixtape the vibe is certified! Have a good weekend, dance to 65mins of great tunes!

12-08-2011: Album Trotting Bear - Morning

Trotting Bear is a folk-band from St. Louis. They play soft, silent tunes with whispering vocals, acoustic guitars and they ooze relaxation. Imagine a warm, slow day of doing absolutely nothing. All you might need is a cold bottle of water, a pack of cigarettes and the perfect soundtrack played to you by this band. You can download this 9-track EP for free from their bandcamp and the next hot Summer day you should give this idea a try. I'm sure it'll be nothing less than perfect, as it's one of the finest albums i have heard in a while. This is definately the next addition to the 2011-Favourites list!

10-08-2011: EP Dolfish - Your Love Is Bummin' Me Out

A great EP of just a little over 8 minutes in which 5 songs are presented by one-man band Max Sollisch aka Dolfish. He has a very specific voice (i have to admit, i thought i was listening to a female's voice at first) and tells great personal stories. The garage-rock sound is perfectly raw and it's 8 minutes gone before you know it. But it's also 8 minutes very well spend and 8 minutes you must enjoy again and again. Great record!

08-08-2011: EP Generationals - Medium Rarities EP

Generationals have recently released a free EP with 4 tracks on it or as they say it themselves: 2 new remixes. 1 summer jam. 1 new song. Their album "Actor-Caster" has been out for some time now, but it's still one of the best things i've heard this year & these 4 'new' tracks are very much worth it. it's more of the same great thing they've done on the album and there's only one thing to do with this: enjoy the fuck out of it!

08-08-2011: Monday Morning Kick-Off [MM-KO] Tribes - Sappho

Another Monday, another Monday Morning Kick-Off. Tribes is a British rockband that is about to release a new record and this track is the 1st single. The song is nice and the video pretty disturbing for a Monday morning so it'll work very nice for waking up.. Only annoying thing is the useless 30-seconds of silence at the beginning of the video, but it makes up for that once the music sets in.. Have a good week!
