CRYSTAL FIGHTERS – YELLOW SUN/IN YOUR ARMS

 

Crystal Fighters are back with an album full of sun that will enlighten your grey days ! “Everything Is My Family” is a celebration of love and will paint a smile on your face even after the crappiest day. This track is one of the classic happy tunes that are so typical to Crystal Fighters, along with “Good Girls”, “All Night” and “Lay Low”. The question is, which one will appear on the next FIFA?

But ! The band did venture further than their comfort zone and experimented a little on this new album. “In Your Arms” is one of them, with an electro dance kind of tune. Enjoy !

 

You can listen to the full album on their Spotify and you can buy it on iTunes HERE ! Don’t forget to check their website HERE !

Bonus track: Just in case you thought you didn’t know who Youandewan was, here is his most popular track that you might have heard somewhere and some point before. And if not, it’s still a pretty good track. 🙂

THE NAKED AND FAMOUS – FALLING

This album reflects the struggles the band as been through during the past couple of years. Which makes me feel bad to announce that this is the only song I’ve been enjoying so far on The Naked And Famous’s new album. For some reason, most of the tracks on that album seem like the should be on the soundtrack of some average chick flick… But maybe I am being too difficult, it might just grow on me in the near future.

Listen / Buy / Website

Living in the Netherlands ? They will be playing live on February 10th 2017 in Utrecht, so if you’ve fallen in love with Alisa’s voice, grab yourself some tickets ! Oh and if you don’t live in the Netherlands, they’re touring around the USA, Canada and they will come to Europe in 2017, so you might just want to keep an eye out for a possible gig in your country.

Much love

VALLIS ALPS – YOUNG

Initially wanted to talk about Yelawolf’s new EP, that came out on the 10th. But my technology skills are still very limited so it’ll have to wait.So ye, sorry guys, no new stuff today.

I heard this song a couple of times during the past year without knowing who it was from. But every time I listen to it, it just makes me feel so calm. I know the soft and soothing tunes have been quite the theme recently, but what can you do, it’s getting cold and the leaves are turning orange here in Rotterdam and it makes me want to listen to some cozy music ! Vallis Alps create the perfect feeling with their cloud-like music. Not sad enough for melancholy, this band will make you want to take in a big breath of fresh air and smile (and if you’re like me, light a camp fire.. Don’t ask).

Listen to more HERE (they’ve only released 4 “official”songs, and a more recent Troye Sivan remix, so it won’t take you that much time if you’re too lazy to listen to full albums.)

Buy their stuff HERE !

And HERE is their website !

BON IVER – 29 #STRAFFORD APTS

Can’t believe I forgot to mention this earlier…

Bon Iver released last Friday the album “22, A Million” with perfect timing, since (at least personally) the band rhymes with autumn, falling leaves and windy weather.

This album seems far more experimental than the previous one (Bon Iver, Bon Iver; which was a f*cking masterpiece if you ask me) and you might notice that all the titles have relatively odd names. The album reminds me in some way of the “crackling twist” of the collaboration between Justin Vernon and James Blake back in 2011 (called Fall Creek Boys Choir).

This is definitely an album that deserves your full attention when listening to it.

You can buy the album HERE, listen to it HERE and read more about it HERE !
