♫ Taxiwars at Muziekgieterij Maastricht

When I was invited to a concert of Taxiwars, founded by Tom Barman of dEUS, I didn’t hesitate to confirm. Even though I knew it was jazz, I was confident I would still like it as I tend to like live jazz. Never ever listen to it at home though. But the largest part of…

♫ Tindersticks at Carré

A short video overview of last night’s performance of Tindersticks at Carré in Amsterdam. Stuart Staples’ voice was perfect and sensitive as always, only a bit much depressing songs this time. The show could have been more bombastic for my taste.. By the way, who on earth invited that support act?! My ears are still…

♫ Heather Nova

As I mentioned in a previous blog I instantly fell in love with Heather’s latest album. Didn’t dare to dream that I would finally see her live (in Stadsschouwburg Nijmegen). She still has that incredibly fragile voice that makes me cry. Moving back to the Netherlands is at least satisfying my hunger for live music 🙂…

♫ Jasper Steverlinck – Things That I Should Have Done

The song was out for a while but today finally the video clip was released. Jasper’s music needs nothing more than the kind of simple and beautiful setting like the Minard Schouwburg in Ghent. After a five (!!!) year wait I’m finally able to see him play live again. He will be performing this Saturday…

♫ Haty Haty – High as the Sun

Dutch musicians David Douglas and Blaudzun are releasing an album together as Haty Haty. ‘High As The Sun’ is coming out on March 11th and this is the first very promising single of their album.

♫ 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!

♫ Ozark Henry – I’m Your Sacrifice

Súch a great song, feels like I’ve known it for 20 years already. But it’s only two years old, might just have played it a lot then. Still heartbreaking.. I’m Your Sacrifice Oh, oh, oh, oow Oh, oh, oh, oow  Something’s rattled your cage  Stopped me dead in my tracks  Been through hell and high…

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…

♫ Daughter – Doing the Right Thing

And they’re making children And they’re making love With their old excuses We are built for reproduction  Then I’ll lose my children Then I’ll lose my love Then I’ll sit in silence Let the pictures soak Out of televisions  And they’re making children Everyone’s in love I just sit in silence Let the pictures soak…
