5 avr. 2010, 20h38m par Popmartijn1. How did you get into 29?
Randy Newman: About 10 years ago he released his album Bad Love. A DJ on the radio (and yes, this was daytime radio on one of the most popular stations in the Netherlands!) really liked it and was promoting it quite a bit. I think I bought his compilation Lonely At The Top shortly afterwards. I liked it and bought Bad Love a little while later and it grew slowly from there. Randy has written some amazing songs.
2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22?
Voicst: Everyday I Work on the Road was the first one I consciously heard and that had me pay more attention to their music. This was around the release of their album A Tale Of Two Devils. A few weeks later I saw them in concert and I was sold. But the very first song I've ever heard of them has to be another song, as I saw them opening for Bettie Serveert a few years earlier. But I can't remember any specifics/songs of that concert.
3. What’s your favorite lyric by 33?

3 fév. 2010, 13h53m par dandyboy73January 2010 was the month of The Knife, Röyksopp and Beach House. Bought The Understanding by Röyksopp in a January sale as I was mightily impressed with Junior, which is still getting better and better with every listen. Most of it's a bit 'meh' (as I believe the kids put it), but fuck me, What Else Is There? is awesome.
Combine that with my love for the Fever Ray album and I had to check out The Knife at last. How have I managed to get this far without appreciating them before?! They're like Björk when she's on top of her game, ridiculously inventive but not forgetting to include a tune either. We Share Our Mothers' Health is a cracker, madder than the proverbial box of frogs and bursting with more ideas than Oasis' entire back catalogue.
I had a sneaky copy of Beach House's Teen Dream a while back, but it's just been getting better and better: most swoonsome album I've heard in yonks. And as a result of that I've checked out both Devotion and Beach House, and the self titled one especially is also a humdinger…
13 jan. 2010, 2h40m par dandyboy73Appropriately enough, play 55,000 is What Else Is There? by Röyksopp. Röyksopp were a band I'd forgotten about really, I enjoyed Melody A.M. back in the day but I hadn't kept up to speed with them at all after that. Then I heard a track in a Channel 5 promo for FlashForward that I really liked, which turned out to be Röyksopp Forever, at around the same time I was falling for Fever Ray and heard she featured on two tracks on Junior. Cutting to the chase, the album's really crept up on me, I bought The Understanding yesterday and while it's a bit hit and miss, What Else Is There? really, REALLY hits. 10 plays in the first day tells me that it must be love!
8 jan. 2010, 14h28m par sqz881. Placebo - 976
Dwa koncerty artysty takiego formatu w jednym roku. Stąd chyba to podjaranie. Mimo, iż trasa obejmowała głównie utwory z nowej płyty, ja wciąż mam wielki sentyment do Black Market Music.
2. Radiohead - 903
Najbardziej odżałowany koncert tego roku oraz najczęściej słuchany bootleg koncertowy. Dodatkowo grudniowe ponowne odkrycie In Rainbows.
3. Crystal Castles - 769
Jeden z pierwszych ogłoszonych artystów na Open'er 2009 oraz sms z wieloma wykrzyknikami od distanse po pierwszych dźwiękach Crimewave usłyszanych w radiowej trójce.
4. M83 - 638
Subiektywnie drugi najlepszy koncert Open'era 2009. Setki przesłuchań bootlega. No a poza tym, przecież soboty to młodość.
Slight Night Shiver chyba już zawsze będzie mi się kojarzyć już z wychodzeniem na balkon na papierosa z karalajn.
5. Röyksopp - 622
Sam nie wiem dlaczego tak. Faktem jest, że The Understanding to jedyna płyta, którą mam w samochodzie, no ale przecież ten odtwarzacz nie potrafi scrobblować ;)

É sempre legal selecionar algumas das músicas que mais significam e significaram algo pra você, não é mesmo? Nesses últimos dias estive pensando nisso e resolvi escolher algumas das faixas que mais me acompanharam durante todos esses anos de vida. Abdicando análises técnicas tanto líricas quanto sonoras, a coleção que agrupei aqui é intimamente pessoal - de fato as músicas que mais me influenciaram e estiveram presentes no meu dia a dia, independente se foram bem recebidas pela mídia em geral ou não. Ou se causaram algum impacto pelo mundo afora... A maioria se relaciona bastante com amor, nostalgia, rejeições e afabilidade. Um pouco os atributos, modéstia à parte, que compusaram minha vida até aqui.
A única regra que propus é não repetir o mesmo artista durante a seleção. Sem mais delongas, segue a lista abaixo. Começando dos maiores pros menores, em ordem decrescente...
Título: That's What You Do
Intérprete: Maximilian Hecker
Composição: Maximilian Hecker
Álbum/Single: Rose (2003)
5 déc. 2009, 21h16m par disairyuzerneimRöyksopp What Else Is There? (2005)
from the album The Understanding
It goes: "I don't know what more to ask for..."
Another modern classic. You may not like Röyksopp, or Karin's voice, or both; but you're gonna love the video, or the beats, or the nostalgic feeling of the song, or everything about it I assure you.
If you like this, listen to: Epple, The Girls and The Robot, You Don't Have a Clue, Seven by Fever Ray, Stranger Than Kindness by Fever Ray
