Herr Alt + Electropoëzie. Supertof. En symmetrisch.

Gisteravond zag ik optredens van Electropoëzie en Herr Alt in Podium Duycker in Hoofddorp. Beide waren nieuw voor me. En de zaal ook. Op basis van een paar korte YouTube filmpjes had ik besloten het een kans te geven. Het klonk lekker energiek en precies als het soort dansbare muziek wat ik de laatste tijd…

♫ Else Born – This Time/Remember

Turid Alida Solberg from Norway’s Philco Fiction is starting her own solo career as Else Born. This Time/Remember is her debut song, exactly how Scandinavian electro should be.

♫ Vök – Muziekgieterij and Gebr. De Nobel

Vök is an Icelandic electronic/pop band with Margrét Rán as a vocalist and Andri Már on sax and keys. After being enchanted by their music for a year, I finally got the chance to see them live. Even twice! First in Muziekgieterij, Maastricht and the day after in Gebr. De Nobel in Leiden. Although Muziekgieterij…

♫ Ibeyi – Stranger/Lover

Twin sisters Lisa-Kaïndé and Naomi Diaz, born in Cuba and based in Paris, form Ibeyi. They sing in French, English, Spanish and Yoruba, which was brought to Cuba by West African slaves.  So far I love this song together with the video clip, in all its simplicity, best. You won’t be disappointed!

Moby & Robin Schulz – Moonlit Sky

Moby has been making me happy with his music for almost 25 years now. The variety in his music is what I love most. From the punk rock album Animal Rights to the more electronic stuff on Innocents. Seen him live countless times. The energy is always amazing, especially when Joy Malcolm is accompanying him…

Max Richter – From Sleep

Max Richter’s album ‘From Sleep’ and the eight hour long composition ‘Sleep’ are out and ever since I have been going to bed with this dreamy music, leaving it on for the full night. Waking up in the middle of the night in a weird state of being. Smiling and realising that I still have…

♫ Lydmor & Bon Homme – Things We Do For Love

No need to explain my Lydmor love to anyone again I guess. But the project she has done with Bon Homme is just amazing. Her fragile, sweet voice in combination with his deep manly voice makes me melt. These two are lifting each other up. Instantly fell in love with this song. This is the…

♫ Vök – Waterfall

‘Breath in for the last time..’ It actually really feels that’s what I’m doing while listening to this hypnotic song, I forget to breath.. Too bad this feeling is not represented in the video, something dreamier would have suited me better. ‘Waterfall‘ is taken from Vök’s new EP ‘Circles‘. Vök was founded in 2013 and…

♫ Kate Boy – Midnight Sun

Finally Kate Boy has announced their long-expected debut album. It’s called ONE, and it’s out in November. You can listen to their new song ‘Midnight Sun‘ which was recorded in Stockholm last December. For now only through the Pitchfork page but hopefully it will be possible to listen on Spotify soon!Update: clip is out! Happy listening!
