Mission Bell – ein neues Album von William Fitzsimmons!

*** Unbezahlte, unbeauftragte Werbung ***

Mission Bell, das neue Album von William Fitzsimmons ist endlich erschienen. Als großer Fan dieses phänomenalen Singer-Songwriters ließ sich im letzten Jahr gut verfolgen, wie viel das Leben William abverlangt hat. Überraschenderweise klingt Mission Bell beim ersten Hören gar nicht so melancholisch, wie man es dadurch vielleicht erwartet hätte. …Dann achtet man auf die Texte – und der geballte Wahnsinn des Lebens und der Liebe überrollt einen. Erfahrungen und Erlebnisse verpackt in wunderbaren Songs, die manchmal eben auch traurig machen und trotzdem immer auch einen Funken Hoffnung versprühen. (Mal wieder) ein großes Hörvergnügen!

Habt einen wunderbaren Start in eine Woche voller goldener Funken!

Wahnsinn – seit Wochen sind in Hamburg schon frühsommerliche Temperaturen. Mit der Gradzahl steigt die Laune. Das spiegelt sich auch in meiner Playlist diesen Monat wider. Was hört ihr denn gerade so?

Viel Spaß beim Reinhören!

In Between Stars von Eleanor Friedberger:

Ein Song voller Soul. Perfekt für warme Frühlingsabende.

God Save Our Young Blood von BØRNS feat. Lana Del Rey:

Durchtanzte Nächte und wilde Frühlingstage, daran muss ich bei diesem Lied denken (nicht, dass ich noch die Nächte durchtanzen würde… ;)). Dazu die melancholische, unverwechselbare Stimme von Lana Del Rey – großes Kino im 2018er Sound!

Make Me Feel von Janelle Monáe:

Eine tolle Prince Hommage, die im Ohr bleibt und trotzdem irgendwie anders klingt.

Die Blüten der Bäume sind in den letzten zwei Wochen explodiert und schon beinahe wieder verblüht. Jetzt würde man meinen, meine Playlist müsste sich mit fröhlichen Frühlingssongs füllen. Doch das ist ganz und gar nicht der Fall – ich mag wohl die dramatischen Momente in der Musik. Aber eines müssen sie doch haben: Etwas Echtes und Unverfälschtes. Drei Songs, die das für mich schaffen hört Ihr weiter unten, wenn Ihr mögt.

Ich wünsche Euch viel Spaß beim Anhören!

Cracker Drool von Goat Girl:

Goat Girl machen sonderbare Musik – dieser Song erinnert mich an den Pulp Fiction Soundtrack. Er würde aber auch hervorragend als Serienmusik zu True Blood passen. Wunderbar schräg!

Hate You von Kate Nash:

Kate Nash singt ein Anti-Liebeslied und das mit ganz viel gute Laune (plus einer gehörigen Prise Hass). Ich mag wohl einfach tragische Liebeslieder, unten kommt auch noch eins… das hat zum Glück gar nichts mit meinen aktuellen Gefühlszustand zu tun :).

November Blue von The Avett Brothers:

Ein melancholischer Song, der sicher nicht in den April passt, aber mit seiner rohen Echtheit einfach überzeugt.

Everything Now – A New Arcade Fire Album!

Arcade Fire’s new album Everything Now will be released on July 28, 2017. At the beginning of the month, me and two of my best pals were at the Arcade Fire concert in Berlin. It was a big party, where they not only played their old indie-rock hits but also some of their new tracks. If you never saw this band live, you definitely should put this onto you bucket list. They are incredibly powerful on stage and are creating a wonderful atmosphere in the audience. The few new songs, that I already listened to, only intensified my anticipation of the album.

Have a wonderful new week and happy listening!

Spotlight on: Musketeer & his new EP Seven Long Years!

Musketeer

In his just released studio EP Seven Long Years Australian singer-songwriter Musketeer (who very recently moved to Hamburg) explores quite a dark time of Australian and European history: It follows the journey of a 19th century British convict sent to the prison camps in Australia. The record combines old sea-tale story telling with a nu-folk musical sentiment. It’s no secret that I have a soft spot for singer-songwriters, especially if their music, voice and stories sound as authentic as Musketeer’s. Seven Long Years instantly had my attention. Luckily, I had the chance to ask him two questions:

Your EP deals with quite a dark time in the Australian and European history. Why did you decide on this topic?

Musketeer: I wrote this EP at a time when I was living in Australia’s second oldest city, Newcastle. I was considering the history of the place and my own European ancestry. Newcastle was a city built on mining and chain gangs. The British ravaged the landscapes and displaced the existing communities there. You can still see the same mining going on there today and the effect it has on people. I guess I thought that was something worth exploring and so I wrote a song about it, and then another, and it kind of transformed into this dark journey which you can now listen to on the EP.”

You just moved to Hamburg. What makes this city unique for you? Do you already have any favorite places?

Musketeer: “Hamburg is beautiful. I guess what makes Hamburg unique for me is that I am now one step closer to becoming a notorious pirate, plundering the choppy waters of the Elbe. Haha. Not really. But I love the river and there is a seaworthy grunginess to this city that I find very interesting.

There are also a lot of cool bars close to the river that I have slowly being discovering. I haven’t been here long enough to pick and choose the best ones yet, but Weinladen in St Pauli has very tasty wines… I guess I am more of a coffee gent. There is an abundance of delicious places that I like to go to. I would recommend Nord Coast, they roast their own coffee and have excellent waffles. Less Political is also pretty damn great. You can find them in the Schanze. The staff are warm hearted and hilarious and make a fine coffee. Can’t go past that.

Enjoy listening!

A Song For Tuesday: Sweet Thing by Pixie Geldof!

Today’s song Sweet Thing by Pixie Geldof comes from her just released album I’m Yours! A little indie, a little melancholic and a lot of beauty is what makes her music sound this wonderful…

Have fun listening!

A Song for Tuesday: Door by Nice as Fuck!

The song Door by Nice As Fuck (NAF) made it instantly into my ears… and then into my legs, and those started dancing only one second later. This doesn’t happen too often! I guess the band name can be seen as a understement ;).

Have fun listening!

A Song For Tuesday: Bottom of the Barrel by the Forlorn Strangers!

The music of the Nashville-based band Forlorn Strangers got me instantly. It’s acoustic country-indie kind of sound fits perfectly to those (slightly rainy) summer days on the sea. Their first album just came out. Today’s song Bottom of the Barrel is the first single from it.

Have fun listening!

A Song for Tuesday: Portugal by Little Big Sea!

Austrian band Little Big Sea were the music act at the #dico16 and really got me into a relaxed mood! I love their laid-back attitude, the dream-like voice of singer Marlene as well as their catchy tunes! They reminded me a bit on Memoryhouse but were still unique! Hopefully, we will hear more about them in the future! Their first album will be released this year :). Here is their song Portugal.

Have fun listening!

A Song For Tuesday: Love Test by The Growlers

“You know they say it ain’t easy loving the same woman forever
Wish you luck on finding a good one on your heart’s endeavor
But nothing is easy
Love isn’t easy as it seems”

Love Test by US band The Growlers is a good mood tune with down-to-earth commentaries about the old topic of love: It isn’t easy as it seems (but it’s fun anyway).

Enjoy listening!
