Music of the Moment: TDCC

At the end of January I went to see Two Door Cinema Club (TDCC) live at Tivoli in Utrecht. It reminded me how much I have listened to their music over the years. And I instantly went back and listened to all their albums every chance I get. So of course I have favorites! Today’s…

Songs of the Moment

Today we are doing a casual blog and I am sharing a few songs I have been listening to. Just a handful of tunes that I have been enjoying that I would like to share with you. Nothing too complicated, just a few fun tunes to enjoy in these dark December days. What have you…

Songs of the Moment

If you know me, you’ll know I am always listening to new music. With that I mean new to me. I am a bit too busy to be able to stay on top of new releases constantly, but every 3 months of so I go through a bunch of indie release lists and find what…

Music of the Month // Best albums of 2019 (so far)

Today I am doing something differently. For months I have been struggling with posting content on the the Fridays that made sense. I always had it saved for fashion posts, but as my tastes have changed I felt less and less inspired and so I started filling it with more beauty content. That also didn’t…

Music ABC 2.0

Since October was one of the worst months for reading again this year, I figured than instead of a post about books, I could share some music with you again. The other week I finally went through my playlists and added tons of new songs, which inspired me to create a new Music ABC playlist….

R&B tunes that melt my heart

It’s been ages since I last posted a blog on music, but my love for music has never wavered. I have just felt greatly uninspired by what’s out there. I am still trying to find new music, but pickings are scarce and it feels like I have heard everything before. Which is why, recently, I…

10 tracks perfect for spring

It’s spring! And with that comes music! I selected 10 songs that completely give me that spring time feeling. Most of these I’ve already featured on here before, but it doesn’t hurt to share your favorites now does it?! Leave a comment down below with your favorite spring songs! Janelle Monae – Dance Apocalyptic

Why I stopped using Spotify

A few weeks ago I posted a message on Facebook: please help me find new music. I live for new music and by new I mean stuff I have never heard before, that are not mainstream and more out of the box. I am that person who knows the bands in the tiny print on…

Music of the Moment | November 2017

Last day of the month and you know what that means: music favorites! November 2017 will officially be the month I finally switched to Spotify. I will always love my analog and carry along music, but I cannot deny how easy it is to have all the music of the world available to you at…

Favorite cover songs

I love a good cover. Sometimes even more than the original. It’s rare that I do, but it is definitely not unthinkable. That is why, for today’s blog post, I’ve selected 5 cover songs that I prefer over the original. Collide – White Rabbit It takes a lot to cover a classic, but this version…

Music of the Moment | October 2017

October was not a great music listening month for me. I was too busy with my house to be consciously be listening to music. But that doesn’t mean we can’t discuss some of my music favorites, because I have plenty. So for this month’s list of music favorites, I thought we could visit some old…

Music of the Moment | September 2017

I am a little bit late to the party bringing you this one, but I was so caught up posting my other blog posts, that I completely forgot about my monthly music favorites. But don’t worry! I still managed to find you 10 songs that I have been loving this month that I don’t want…

Songs for a rainy day

I post my monthly music favorites, but I hardly ever go over songs that I used to love and still do even though they aren’t necessarily the newest released out there. There is just so much good music, it is impossible to post it all. But one can make the attempt surely, right?! So today…

Music of the Moment (August 2017)

Last Thursday of the moment and that means I have some music favorites to share with you. This month I’ve been digging the new Arcade Fire record and had time to sort through heaps of newly released music. Here is a selection of 10 of my absolute favorite songs of the moment. Give them a…

Current favorite workout songs

I wasn’t sure what to do for this months’ music post. It’s not that I haven’t listened to any music, none of it was anything new. But then I figured I hadn’t done one of these for some time. I tend to do several different workouts a week and there are always a few songs…

Music of the Moment (June 2017)

Last Thursday of the month, so time to share some music again. This month is a true hodgepodge of favorites. I went to a festival and thus heard loads of new music, bought some new albums as some of my favorite releases of the year happened and found a few loose tracks to fill in…

Bands @ Best Kept Secret I hope to see

Tomorrow will see the beginning of Best Kept Secret festival. And I’m going! It will be my second time and I’m fully prepared. I have a tent, a matte and a sleeping bag, so I’m all set for 3 days of sun, fun and music. Because music is the reason I’m going. Here are my…

Music of the Moment | May 2017

Last Thursday of the month, so time again for a music post. What have I been listening to this month? I had loads to choose from. The other week I thought, why isn’t my playlist playing any new songs anymore? And then I figured out that I had once again theĀ  newness of my song…

Music of the Moment | April 2017

April has been a great music month for me. I finally finished going through heeps of new music in March, which meant I could finally listen to it all in April. So most of these songs are brand spanking new. I was also sent a couple of cool new track by PR, so I will…

Spring music picks

Have you been digging the sunshine as much as I have? And with sunshine and spring time comes happy and dreamy music! And since I have plenty of happy and dreamy music to go around, I figured I could share a few of my favorite ‘YAY it’s spring’ music picks. I have selected 10 songs…

Music of the Moment (March 2017)

I finally got round to sorting through heaps of music this month. Which means I had a large new batch of music to play around with all month. There are still a few older songs in here, because I couldn’t believe I haven’t shared these with you before. Still, there is plenty of new music…

Music of the Moment | February 2017 – revisiting old favorites

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, then you may remember that I went through the entire alphabet listing all of my absolute favorite songs. This Music ABC took me nearly 2 years to post, but unfortunately it was far from complete. There is simply too much great music out there to capture…

Music of the Moment (January 2017)

I am so behind on my music discoveries! Ever since I’ve been reading more, I have found the amount of music I can and am listening to has dwindled to a minimum. I had this grant idea to revamp one of my playlist over the Christmas holiday and I only got as far as deleting…

Best in Music (2016)

Part 2 of my end of year favorites will be devoted to music. I am still a big music buff and when it comes to hobbies it’s the one that has been with me the longest. So for me it is only natural to wrap up the year looking back not only on what beauty…

Music of the Moment (November 2016)

My oh my, almost the last Music of the Moment of the year. Well, quite possibly the last one, because I am not sure yet whether I will do a December edition of this blog post or whether I will use the end of year blog post to do one big recap of all of…

Music of the Moment (October 2016)

For this month’s Music of the Moment, I have a slightly different format than the usual overview of song favorites. Because lately I have been finding myself listening to albums more so than individual songs. And I bought a few albums this past month that are newly released and that I have been enjoying. And…

Music of the Moment (September 2016)

Time for musica again! It’s the end of the month which means I’m sharing my current music favorites with you again. As usual there is a bit of everything: from Britney Spears to some indie rock. I hope you enjoy! Air Traffic Controller – This Is Love

Music of the Moment (August 2016)

Let’s spice up this already hot summer’s day with some excellent music picks shall we? Summer time means plenty of opportunity to scour the web looking for the best new tunes of the past few months. Trust me when I say I have found tons of new music to listen and love. I decided to…

Music of the Moment (July 2016)

The end of the month July is almost here (seriously, where did the time go?!) and that means that I have another overview of some of my favorite tracks from this month. I just spent a few days sorting through heaps of new music as I hadn’t had a chance to hunt down new music…

10x happy summer songs

Summer time is made by some sunny summer songs. And even though it might have been raining buckets and we haven’t had much of a summer to speak of, I still enjoy my summer tracks. So I thought to spread that summer love and select 10 songs that put summer on my mind and give…

Music of the Moment | June 2016

Apologies for not posting a food related post this week, but to be honest, I haven’t been cooking much lately. I’ve been too busy and simply have stuck with dishes I already know. So nothing too adventurous going on in the kitchen. That’s why I figured I could switch things up for a change and…

Music ABC – #

Do you know that game, painted by numbers? Well this very final music ABC post is a bit like that, but then with music. For the final installment of my music ABC, I decided to pick my favorite tracks which titles feature a number. Because all is dandy, when you go through your music favorites…

Music of the Moment (May 2016)

Time for some more music on here! This month I’ve been listening to tons of indie bands again, some of them better known than others. And I found some more gems that I would like to share with you today. Be sure to give them a listen and enjoy!

Music ABC – Z

Time for one of the final Music ABC blog posts! I only have one more after this. As I compiled my Music ABC, I figured that there are also plenty of songs with numbers in their title name, so that is what will be coming up next. For this installment, I bring you the letter…

Music of the Moment (April 2016)

Final Thursday of the month and you know what that means! Yep, it’s time for another music favorites round up. In the month of April I got round to listening to a ton of new tracks that I weeded through over Easter break. I don’t think any of the artists listed below have ever been…

Music ABC – Y

For the month of April, we are working on getting one step closer to the end of my Music ABC. After this only the Z and songs to do with numbers will be up and then, after 26 months of consistent posting, I will have gone through some of my all time favorite songs. It…

Music of the Moment (March 2016)

It’s the final day of the month and you know what time it is. It is time for Music of the Moment! I have a nice selection of some brand new and some not so new tracks for you again that I have handpicked from all of the wonderful indie offerings I was able to…

Music ABC – X

The letter X wasn’t easy to find songs for to go into my favorites list. So this is the first part of my Music ABC in which I had to cheat a little. And to my surprise one song on this list isn’t available anywhere online either. But that song also goes way back and…

Music of the Moment (February 2016)

The end of February is nigh and so it is high time to do a round up of my music favorites. What have I been listening to this month? Tons of indie as per usual. This month I have handpicked 20 songs for you to give a listen if you want. From new up and…

Music ABC – W

We are at the W you guys! After starting with the A, in the next few months I will be rounding up this epic tour along my music favorites. From the Beatles to Backstreet Boys and from Prodigy to Portishead and everything in between: a lot has already passed. Today I am bringing you 5…

Music of the Moment (January 2016)

The final Thursday of the month is here, which means it’s time for me to share some music favorites with you once more. And it’s been a while since I last did this. I didn’t have time for this type of post in December as the holidays got in the way and I had other…

New music releases I am excited about

2016 will bring not only a new year but also lots of new music. To be quite honest I was a little underwhelmed by the releases in 2015. Especially by the end of the year, I hardly found any new music releases that really stuck with me. So I am hoping 2016 will be a…

Spotify Christmas playlist

Christmas Day is almost here! And what better way to get into the Christmas spirit by listening to some Christmas music. Last year I already shared my favorite Christmas songs with you, but this year I thought we could do something bigger & better.

Music ABC – V

This blog post will be the first of two posts to come your way today. To start off today, I thought I’d share some music favorites with you again. I have been listing my favorite songs of all time in alphabetical order for almost 2 years now. It’s been slow going, but with only 5…

Music of the Moment (November 2015 – The Album Edition)

It’s the end of November, which means it’s time for an overview of what I have been listening to this month. And to be quite honest, I haven’t been listening a lot of music consciously. In any case, I didn’t have the time to invest in sitting down and listen to a lot of new…

We interrupt this programme…

… to bring you important news. Apologies for the lack of blog post today. I never really blog much ahead of time and that has now affected my daily post schedule. However it was for a very good reason. Years & Years @Klokgebouw, Eindhoven, 18 Nov. 2015

Music ABC – U

First Thursday of the month, time for the continuation of my favorite songs in alphabetical order by song title. There are quite a few indie rock tracks in today’s list, but also a golden oldie in a language other than English. And if you’ve listened to most of the music I share on here ever…

Music of the Moment (October 2015)

I thought it would be time to hit you with my monthly music favorites. I am currently digging a more organic sound to what I usually listen to or post on here. I already wrote last time that I feel there is a shift towards more guitar oriented music again and that’s why there is…

Music ABC – T

I thought it would be time to be sharing some more of my all time music favorites with you as well and we’re slowly but surely edging our way to the end. Today I’m sharing my music favorites starting with the letter T and some of these loves go way back. From childhood memories of…
