I love music. Not all music, I have a distinct opinion on what I listen. It goes from epic orchestral music, to relaxing post-rock indie, to heavy metal. It really depends on the mood I’m in.

Music review: ‘Every Country’s Sun’ by Mogwai

Post rock, as a genre, is hard to define. It is a mix of synthesizers and rock music, culminating in a sound that can be described as ‘atmospheric’ at best. It is even harder to suggest to someone to give it a try. The songs are often way over six minutes long and have generally very long intro’s. They have...

Videogame ánd Music? Why yes, it’s Audiosurf 2!

I made a video. Of a song. In a videogame. Impossible? Nope, it’s Audiosurf 2, the follow up to the critically acclaimed Audiosurf. Originally going to be called ‘Audiosurf: Air’, it’s now simply called ‘Audiosurf 2’. And I’m okay with that. It’s awesome. Don’t trust me? You can buy it here, and try it for yourself. It’s still in early...

The 2013 Summer Hit?

Sunshine of your Love

  12th of March, 2012. The first real day of spring. In order to celebrate, I wrote a post about it. The theme-song of that day was The Beatles’ ‘Here Comes the Sun’. Today, the 4th of March, I will celebrate the exact same thing – the victory of the sun over dreary, cold and cloudy weather. I booted up...

FELIXDICIT’s ‘X of 2012’

As the clock is slowly ticking away, counting down the final moments of this year, it is time to recap 2012. What movies, what games or what albums were either very good, or very bad. As I can’t have total knowledge of everything that was released the last 366 days, I will stick with whatever I’ve seen, listened to or...

1. Norah Jones is Ravi Shankar’s daughter. You might’ve heard about Norah Jones, jazz-musician. You might not have heard of Ravi Shankar. Well, Ravi Shankar was an Indian-musician, renowned for introducing George Harrison and the rest of the Beatles to the sound of the sitar. If you hear Sgt.

MUSIC REVIEW: Caspian – Waking Season

Artist: Caspian Album:  Waking Season Genre: Post-Rock (instrumental) Runtime: 50:50 Let’s start this review with an acknowledgement. I never heard of Caspian. I was looking for some new album releases, when this one caught my attention. I gave it a try, and was sold almost immediately. It’s not as melancholic as ‘Faunts’, not as experimental as ‘Godspeed You! Black Emperor’,...

MUSIC REVIEW: Faunts – Left Here Alone (EP)

Artist: Faunts Album: Left Here Alone Genre: Post-Rock Runtime: ~30 minutes FINALLY! My favorite band returns with a new album. Ever since the EP called ‘M4’, Faunts have been one of, if not the, my favorite bands. Their albums, ‘High Expectations/Low Results’ and ‘Feel.Love.Thinking.Of’ where equally great, though the latter seemed depart a bit from their regular recordings, with shorter songs,...
