MUSIC REVIEW: Caspian – Waking Season 0

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’, not as polished as ‘Mogwai’, but it is on equal...

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, and catchier, balanced tunes more reminiscent of pop music. How...

Turn up your speakers or put on...

My Personal Summer Hit of 2012 1

My Personal Summer Hit of 2012

  Every year, there’s a song which dominates the radio during the summer – the summer hit. This year, there’s not yet such a song. I would like to nominate this drum ‘n’ bass song by Rudimental, featuring John Newman, called ‘Feel the Love’. It’s not an exceptionally happy song, which summer hits almost always are, but the message is there: feel the love. I first noticed this song during...

In Honor of the Sun Shining Today

Ever wondered how ‘Here Comes the Sun’ could’ve sounded if they added a guitar-solo in the middle? Well, no need for wondering anymore, as you can hear it in this video at exactly 1:01. I wonder why they cut it from the final song, it sounds absolutely great. Anyway, enjoy it while the sun is still shining – I spotted a lot of clouds coming near.

CURRENTLY PLAYING: Kyuss – Blues for the Red Sun

Sometimes, I like an album enough that I listen to it daily, or at least, a few times a week. Which is the case with this album, Kyuss’s ‘Blues for the Red Sun’ from 1992. Not only do I want to listen to the music, I also want to spread the word about it to others. Hence, this blog post. Why do I listen to an album from 1992, you...

Music to relax to 2

Music to relax to

I’m sitting here, behind my desk, trying to write an essay and a presentation. I’ve been sitting here all day long. I’m currently getting one of my infamous headaches. I’m not going to bitch about it, popped some aspirin, and I’m currently waiting for them to kick in. Meanwhile, I’m quietly listening to some relaxing tracks to pass the time. Then I thought, why not share these songs? I’m going...
