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 slow tempo’s, lack any real chorus and, more often than not, lack any vocals as well. At first glance, the...

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 acces, which means it isn’t fully finished yet. This doesn’t mean it is unplayable – quite the contrary. It just...

The 2013 Summer Hit?

Last year I quite accurately predicted in April Rudimental’s “Feel the Love” would be the summer hit of 2012. This year, I’m willing to make another prediction. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’  “Can’t Hold Us” featuring Ray Dalton. Enjoy.

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 iTunes to find a theme song to this joyous day. Searching for ‘sun’, I eventually came up with Cream’s ‘Sunshine...

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 played. I wanted to include books to this list, but I haven’t really read any books for the purpose of...

7 WTFacts (Music I)

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. Peppers Lonely Hart Club Band, you’ll noticed the prevalence of the exotic sounding sitar, played by Harrison. Shankar thaught him how to play it. Sadly, Shankar passed away last week, but...
