Maya Vik - Bummer Gun.

Hello 80´s! Maya Vik´s from Norway. I would not have guessed that:).

Antwon - Still Guarded.

I did not know that Cities Aviv has produced this song for Antwon. Now that I know it all makes sense. You can hear it. I´m a big fan of Cities Aviv. They really have their own style and sound and little of the brilliance has rubbed on to this.

This was released about a year ago but it still gets me. So HOT!!

Yosi Horikawa - Wandering EP.

Cool!! I like how Yosi Horikawa uses ping-pong sounds on the song "Bubbles" and other every day sounds like the sound of pen scratching on the paper when you are drawing in such a beautiful way. Really nice EP!

Vondelpark - Jetlag Blue Version.

Aah, this is great!!

Floating Points - K & G Beat.

Maria Minerva gig.

Tonight I went to see Maria Minerva at Kuudes Linja. I had heard of her before but had not listened her music and I was curios to hear how it was. Must say that I´m a fan now. I really liked her stuff and especially how she remixes old songs. I loved the lo-fi versions of Abba songs! Here is one of her Abba covers.  

And here is another cool cover by her of Joe Cockers "Unchain my heart".

Preview Emily Kai Bock’s new documentary on New York’s underground rap scene, Spit Gold Under An Empire.

Lay Bac - Shriller.

Lay Bac has released their debut album called Shriller a few weeks ago. Brilliantly sexy danceable electro house! Some songs remind me of Washed Out but an upbeat and happy version of it. I especially like song "Gone B/C" and "Heartwork" but I will surely get other favorites!

Short Stories - On The Way.

Today as I was scrolling thru my playlists to play some music for me and my sister I realised that the music that I usually prefered to listen to is a bit melancholic or with some kind of "dark twist". My sister would have liked to listen to something cheerful and I just couldn´t find anything in that category. Does it make you a melacholic person if you like to listen to melancholic music?

And here is yet another not so upbeat song from Short Stories "On The Way". I think I could start a club night called the "The Gloom Disco" for other like minded people;).
