Me and my other half went to see Emmy The Great last week in Amsterdam. She performed in a lovely little venue called De Roode Bioscoop and she was amazing. Her one-woman set was simple and relaxed, and beautiful and heartfelt at the same time.
We had her album Second Love playing most of the weekend. It’s a wonderful album. Have a listen! She started off her set with a Chinese version of ‘Constantly’, the melody of which has been stuck in my head ever since the gig. I thought I’d add both the English and Chinese versions.
Have a wonderful week!
I know it’s only November, but Asylums’ debut Killer Brain Waves is my Album of the Year. I love it! I love the energy they managed to get onto the record. I can’t wait for an opportunity to see them live in 2017!
Hippo Campus’ debut album Landmark will be out in February on Transgressive Records. For some reason the actual title of the song is ‘boyish’ and the album landmark, but I hate it when titles are all lower case, so I am being rebellious.
I like this song and I will definitely have a listen to their album when it’s out.
I keep hearing this on the wireless and every time I hear it the song buries into my brain a little deeper. Love it!
Well, what better song to share today that one by a band that has become one of my favourite bands in the last year or so and that has a video in which a cartoon Trump is being hit by a cartoon car!
Let’s hope the next car crash won’t be Trump becoming the next US president. That… would… not… be… good…
It’s from their latest album Helter Seltzer, which was released in the spring and one of my top albums of 2016.
This one has been kicking around in my head for a few days.
I have been listening to Best Coast intermittently for the last couple of days. Their music is quite summery and that suits me at the moment.
