Novastar

Have been waiting since 2014 for the new album from Novastar’s Joost Zweegers but this year it’s finally gonna happen. The new single ‘Home Is Not Home’ is already a winner for me. The concert he gave in Melkweg yesterday was a nice mix of old and new songs; The Best Is Yet To Come,…

♫ 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 🙂…

♫ The Smashing Pumpkins – Disarm

Waking up with nostalgic stuff. Music from the best period in my life makes me both sad and happy at the same time. This is my favourite song from their Siamese Dream album (1993). ‘Disarm you with a smile And leave you like they left me here To wither in denial The bitterness of one…

♫ Bahamas – Lost in the Light

Hit by another song.. How can people live without music? Bahamas is the stage name for Afie Jurvanen, a Canadian musician born in Toronto. So far I haven’t found any of his other music as interesting as this song but this one hits me in the stomach. So I guess that’s more than enough for…

♫ Meg Myers – Lemon Eyes

Met deze heerlijke plaat van Meg Myers werd ik vanochtend wakker. Op slag zin om op te staan en energie om de dag te beginnen als zij d’r keel opentrekt! Haar nieuwe album ‘Sorry‘ komt deze herfst uit. Snel haar oude albums even luisteren..

♫ MS MR – Criminals

Amazing new song from ‘How Does It Feel‘, the new album of MS MR. One more week to go and see if there’s more similar stuff on it.

♫ Thé Lau blijft van deze wereld!

Een van de eerste cd’s die ik ooit kocht was ‘Blauw’ van The Scene. Daar stonden ook meteen m’n twee grootste favorieten ‘Rigoureus’ en ‘Iedereen is van de wereld’ op. Prachtig hoe muziek bijzondere momenten van vijfentwintig jaar geleden weet op te roepen en tegelijkertijd ook nu nog zo relevant kan zijn. Alweer acht jaar…

♫ Calexico – Volviendo

Volviendo Cuando yo era niño mi madre me llevaba a ver los trenesQue fueron desapareciendo más allá hacia el norte de la mariquitaY al este de la sierra de los Ajos Yo soñaba con que algún día me gustaría dejar mi casaViajar a todo el mundoY a ver la vida desde las alturas de las…

Tame Impala – ‘Cause I’m a Man

Again a great single of the Tame Impala’s upcoming album Currents. You have to be patient until July. Nothing to add. ‘Cause he’s a man..
