The Werneckes

Well....As Jeppe says...Lack of posts. I have been meaning to write about this artist for quite some time, but hasn´t come around to it. Well untill now. So here goes.

The Werneckes is a one man project by a guy named Jacob Moeller, based in Montreal, Canada. He just released his second album (to my knowledge) by the name "Cycle". His music is a compilation of keys, folk musi
c, flanging guitars, loops and much more. You can´t really box it. It´s kind a mellow and i really like it. It makes a great sound carpet for the grey and cold weather outside. You can visit his HP here, where you also can make a purchase of his record.

The Cure's '4:13 Dream' stream

First off, allow me to apoligize for the recent lack of posts; exams and general busy'ness (it's a word! or maybe not...) has had us all hanging on the ropes, but hopefully we will manage to make up for the lost time soon. So thanks for still reading.

Secondly - and much more importantly - the new album from the The Cure is ready but if you need to check it out before buying you can listen to the entire thing on their MySpace here (usual less-than-perfect MySpace quality, but hey - it's better than nothing). After the first listen I am very positive and hopeful; it's The Cure the way I've always preferred them: layers of beatiful guitars, firm basslines tieing it all down and Robert's Smiths's vocals filled with desperation, tenderness and madness all at once. It's dark but not without a certain pop sensibility to boot. Confused? No need to be, go listen for yourself, for crying out loud.

I don´t really know that much about this guy, besides that he is from Leeds, England. His describtion of himself or whatever it is, on goes like this "A computer from comet, a piano from the parish church, a broken microphone stolen from university, a herbal nun in the wardrobe, a grizzly bear under my bed and finally a young man from Leeds - Luumu -" But who cares, as long as he makes great music. His style is a mix of electronica and acoustic music. Check it out underneath.

Bon Iver live

Sometimes I can't believe my own luck, most recently being in attendance at the Bon Iver show right here in Århus, Denmark saturday night. One of those rare moments when a packed club actually quiets down and listens. My expectations were through the roof, but so was the band's performance - pretty low-key, all seated but playing with an intensity that didnt require anyone standing. Those of you who have been following Justin Vernon and co. online might know that they are out and about playing a new song called Blood Bank - which in my opinion in pretty freakin' great. Here's someones recording of it at another show earlier on the tour:

Two Danish album debuts this week

We've written about both of these bands earlier concerning their very promising debut EP's, and this week sported a full length album from both! I've had a chance to listen intensely to 'em and I'm already ready to cast my vote for this year's best Danish records. Choir Of Young Believers are more oriented towards a the full-out epic pop, whereas Small excells in the dual-vocal guitarnoise synth pop that goes so well with a sunny day. My music collection has been greatly upgraded with these two releases.
Enjoy a taste below:

Choir Of Young Believers - Next Summer

Small - Comic Girl

Value of music

Found this on a blog. Take a second to think about it....very interesting!!!

Let's say you bought some tunes at the iTunes Store. DRM free. You don't really like that music and want to resell it to people who like it. How much is it worth? Same price? Less? Nothing?

How much is a digital download worth when you resell it? Think about that for a moment.

Black Golden Bull

I recently received a couple of tracks from this band "Black Golden Bull". The music is country leaning against americana. They discribe their own music as "low-fi pop, and vocals registering somewhere between Roy Rogers and Sufjan Stevens". Not bad.......that is if it´s true. is. I really think this is great, and you should take a listen to it.
They are signed to the label "Non entity labs".

Black Golden Bull - Ocean Of Land

Black Golden Bull - Buffalo Waltz

Pictures and Sound

This band is called Pictures and Sound and I don't really know why I like them but I just can't stop listening to them play pop tunes. You have to listen to this for yourself, be careful or you might get hooked like me!!! They have a new album out now. Visit them here.

Pictures and Sound - It's You

Okkervil River "The Stand-ins" ready for pre-order

I only just got into Okkervil River with their album The Stage Names, but I've grown more and more fond of them during the past year or so, so it joyed my little heart to find that they've made a new track available for download. You can also pre-order the upcoming album and receive some digital goodies to boot. I've only heard this one song, but it puts me right into the same mood I get from Stage Names; a sort of manic melancholy combined with an urge to dance and sing drunk around a fire. Or something to that effect...

Ra Ra Riot

Ra Ra Riot first full lenght effort The Rhumb Line has just hit the streets and is definately worth a listen. Their future seemed glum just a year ago, following the death of drummer and founding member John Pike, but the remaining members decided to go on, and thank you for that. We're in Shins country, but then again - not really. Take a listen below. Enjoy.

The National reveals new song

I just got back from a few weeks vacation, so what better way to sink back in to normality than by going to a The National show in my home city? Since I've never seen them perform before I didn't quite know what to expect from this bunch of ageing family men... They certainly didn't go all-out rock'n'roll bonkers, but with their particular brand of music in mind, that might have seemed a bit over the top. What they did do was focus on the songs (as they deserve), and play a tight and melancholy show with the odd ballad and/or rock-out ending. Needles to say, I was very pleased with the way things turned out. And even better; they played a brand new tune that could end up really quite amazing when it eventually ends up on an album in the (hopefully) near future. Someone taped it at their Copenhagen gig a few nights earlier, so here goes:

Dr. Dog

According to Dr. Dog music sounds like....
“There’s a little folk, blues, indie rock, soul, bluegrass—and a whole lot of down-home harmonizing. It conjures images of old friends sitting on a porch swapping instruments and just letting the tape recorder run.” I agree with them on this one, take a listen for yourself. Their album "Fate" is out now. Go buy it here.

Conor Oberst

In case any or all of you have missed this, Conor Oberst is releasing an album in his own name with assistance from the so-called Mystic Valley Band in August.I don't know why he has given the Bright Eyes name the boot, 'cos the music is still very recognizably Bright Eyes-y. But nevermind the name - the fact remains that the album is under way and can even be streamed from Oberst's website here. In case you're more of a hands-on kinda guy/girl theres a downloadable track below for you, enjoy.

Sigur Rós

Sigur Rós just released their seventh album "
með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust" They have been so kind to put out a stream player with the full album, so you and I can listen to it before we make a purchase. Great idea.....I hope that many other artists will follow their good example. You can listen to the album below.
Ohh and by the way just go buy their album, because it is freakin´ awesome!! Click here to purchase.

Ingrid Michaelson

I recently recieved a mail from this artist. I didn´t really got around to listen to her music. And what a shame, cause she makes great music. Pop music with a hint of Jazz, and then she has a voice that just sends you in orbit around, well at least your stereo. Last year she put out her second record "Girls and Boys".
Her music reminds me of Polly Paulusma, so if you like Ingrid Michaelson, you should definitely check out Polly.
Check out this great video, and click here to visit her hp and buy her record.


Plajia is a Trip-Rock band, as they call themselves, from Montreal, Canada. What is it with these Canadians?? They seem to just keep on producing great music!! And thank god for that...Plajia just released their debut album "Beautiful explosions" on Orange music. Take a listen, and take a look at their new music video. I´m sure you wont be dissapointed.....
Visit them on their hp here.
