♫ 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…

♫ 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…

♫ Heather Nova – Sea Glass

In love with Heather Nova’s fragile but powerful voice since her album ‘Oyster’ in 1994, with impressive songs as ‘Truth and Bone’ and ‘Maybe an Angel’ which instantly throw me back twenty years in time.. Later albums never had the same impact on me but I kept trying.With her new album ‘The Way It Feels‘ she’s cutting…

♫ I Will, I Swear – Long Days

Gewoon weer eens iets moois uit België, of meer precies Gent.  Dit duo bestaande uit Jonathan Van Landeghem en Fien Deman maakt dromerige, melancholische liedjes. Zodra je Fiens fragiele stem hoort, laat je alles uit je handen vallen. Wat een talent.  Hun debuut ‘Long Days’ is al van april 2013 maar ze beginnen eindelijk wat meer bekendheid…

♫ Mree – Lift Me Up

Zo’n prachtige, fragiele en engelachtige stem. Perfect om een lazy Sunday mee te beginnen. Mree, pas negentien jaar oud, produceert haar eigen muziek en video’s.

♫ Mirel Wagner – Oaktree

Just listen.. ‘So if you walk in the woods and you see A big old old tree Thread carefully, please Cause I’m dreaming underneath’

♫ Adna – Corner of My Heart

Toch wel een van m’n fijnste ontdekkingen van 2014! Nieuwkomer, deze Zweedse zangeres. Luister dit (of juist niet) als je in een melancholische bui bent. Voor mij past het uitstekend op m’n Scandinavische playlist, goed voor donkere winteravonden. Adna, onthoud die naam!
