05-06-2011: Puzzle Muteson - En Garde

Tomorrow is the official release date for this album, but through the player above you can hear 3 songs and they are all simply beautiful. The 3 songs are pure, sweet & form a great soundtrack for a cozy Sunday-evening with some candlelight. This album is being released tomorrow, which is only a few hours away, but still.. i cannot wait untill it is tomorrow!

02-06-2011: EP Conveyor - Sun Ray [EP]

This EP was released in April and is extremely beautiful. I bought it when i was halfway through the 1st song and the only thing i'm disappointed about is the fact i didn't get myself one of those 500 (orange) limited edition vinyls they've started selling per yesterday. Conveyor reminds me of Grizzly Bear and a little Fleet Foxes (but more of GB, to be honest), 2 highly appreciated bands in my home and this is gonna be on heavy rotation for a long, long time..!

01-06-2011: Album Arctic Monkeys - Suck It and See

On release for next week, but already streaming for a few days (click the album-cover above) is the complete new Arctic Monkeys-album. So far i was ignoring the whole hype around this release, but now i've heard the entire album a few times i cannot say i'm not interested anymore. I will give it a few more spins before i form my judgement, but so far i'm pleasantly surprised!

31-05-2011: Matt Bauer - Blacklight Horses

Lights off, candles lit & this beautiful song by Matt Bauer is the full description of my Tuesday evening.

30-05-2011: Monday Morning Kick-Off [MM-KO] KOPPS - Terminator

This weeks Monday Morning Kick-Off is a non-rock track for a change, for the simple reason that 'Terminator' by KOPPS is a fantastic track to start the week with. This really takes me back to the 1990s dance music. Not the shitty part, but the early years when the music was still original. That might be a reason for some people not to listen to it, but you would miss a great track & a good start of this week. Have a good week!

29-05-2011: Album Other Lives - Tamer Animals

After listening to For 12 several times a day over the last 2 weeks i decided to post it on the blog and just as i always do when writing a little something on a band i've discovered, i spend some time on Other Lives' website first. To see of i can hear some more music & maybe learn a little about the band and the albums they have released or might be working on. This evening i found the player above with 3 songs from their recently released record Tamer Animals (which is also the title for the least appealing track if you ask me..) and that makes 3 great songs i have heard of this band now. Unfortunately, that record is only released in the USA so far, Europe will have to wait till (don't hold your breath) August 29! There is a possibility i've forgotten about them by then, but who knows.. For 12 is truly a great song and the other 2 are good enough to help me remind this European release by the time it's August.

29-05-2011: Louise Burns - What Do You Wanna Do

Back to the 1960s with this great track that has me dancing several times a day for the last few weeks, Louise Burns has recorded at least one great song on her 1st record.

29-05-2011: Chamberlin - Bitter Blood

Chamberlin - Fools

Chamberlin - Dust

Chamberlin knows how to write a decent emo-rock song. That may sound bad, but it's not. The 2 songs above are probably the best songs of their debut album Bitter Blood, released on March 1st. Though i have to admit i have not heard the entire album, but there are several songs to be listened on their website and these 2 are definately my favourites. The singer has a great voice and it really works well with the music, which for some reason takes me back to my youth and reminds me of something i haven't heard in a while, yet not knowing what it is that this is linking me back to.. Anyway, based on these 2 great songs Chamberlin deserves to be heard, they've been getting a lot of airtime @pluginbaby and i'm definately gonna continue following their progress and new music they might release.

27-05-2011: Album Thurston Moore - Demolished Thoughts

Thurston Moore - Benediction

Thurston Moore - Circulation

Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore has released his latest solo-album this week, called (you guessed it) Demolished Thoughts (produced by Beck!). And with me not being a very big fan of Sonic Youth (despite all the credits they deserve, i just never got around to really listening to them, who knows i might love their music..) i was not expecting to much of this to be honest. But i am pleasantly surprised by the 2 sweet songs that were pre-released, which you can hear up there. If i had to describe Sonic Youth with as little as i know about it, i would use the word 'noise', so i was really amazed by the complete abscence of it in these 2 songs. Especially Circulation is an amazing song, with a certain tense and urge in it, i simply can not get enough if it.

You can hear the entire album online, as it's being streamed by NPR, and as i said, it has hit the stores already. So if it takes your fancy, get your copy today (i sound like a bad advertisement now, don't i?). My iTunes has just informed me that it's done, it's 7.35 now and the 1st buy is in. This just might become a really bad day for my bankaccount, but a great day for my record collection..

26-05-2011: Theodore - All I Ask

Just had 5 minutes left to share this nice track by Theodore. Now racing back to work, tomorrow i will make up for the silence with some great music!

24-05-2011: Dry The River - Bible Belt [live]

Absolutely loving this song for some time now and this live version is even better..!!
