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…

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…

Tuned up Thursday: music on the road

Spending 3 weeks on trains makes for plenty of time for listening to tons of music. Or so I thought in advance. I ended up listening to little music during my trip. I know! Shock! It’s not because I didn’t want to listen to music, but because I found something even more awesome to listen…

Tuned up Thursday: Songs of the Week #4

The randomness of random. That’s what today’s music post is. A bit of a classic. A bit of jazz. A bit off naughties pop rock. A bit of chillwave/ dubstep and some indierock. Enjoy! Creedence Clearwater Revival – Up Around the Bend CCR is one of my favorite ‘older’ bands. It’s a perfect blend of…

Tuned up Thursday: Music of the Moment (May 2014)

Last Thursday of the month and that means it’s time for me to share with you some of the new tunes I’ve been discovering in the past few weeks. Luckily for you, I worked my way through a bunch of indie playlists again at the beginning of the month, so I had plenty to wade…

Songs of the Week #2

Time to visit some staple songs from my music list again. This time it not only includes songs, it also entails one entire movie score. Sit back relax and let Mumford & Sons, Kings of Leon, Tift Merritt, Shiny Toy Guns and Marcelo Zarvos entertain you with their music. Mumford and Sons – Tessellate (Alt-J…

Song(s) of the week #1

Music is one thing that literally makes my world go round, so when it comes to daily posts, I’ve decided that music needs a regular spot on the blog. My aim is to have a music related blog post once a week. Where I already have a regular blog post entitled Music of the Moment,…

Music of the Moment (March 2014)

Happy spring peeps! Spring is officially one day old and there are two things that are quintessential spring to me: updating my wardrobe and finding new music. These past few weeks were spent sorting through 1000+ songs to update my playlists and of course listening to the goodness that made it through my tough selection…

Music of the Moment: Boardwalk Empire soundtrack

If you’ve been following my music of the moment posts, then you’ll know I don’t like your every day, run of the mill, type music. But now I’ve found something even more amazing: 1920s jazz. I already was familiar with rag time and Charleston music but the recordings are sometimes so awful that listening to…

Music of the moment (February 2014)

Wowza! It’s been ages since I last did one of these. November to be exact. And that tells you how busy I’ve been and how much work it is to scramble out of my little hole. I had literally no time to find any new music since the start of the school year. I bought…

Music of the moment (November 2013)

Now it’s been ages since I did one of these: more than 6 weeks ago. But of course I haven’t stopped listening to music. In fact, I’ve been listening to tons of new music. Mostly albums though and not my usual indieplaylists (which have been backlogged since August, yikes!), so it simply didn’t occur to…

Music of the Moment (October 2013)

This post is a bit of a cheat, as I haven’t been listening too a whole lot of new music. I simply haven’t had the time! So these songs were all acquired and listened to during the summer months, but they all quickly made my shortlists so they have been on whenever my shuffle decides…

Music of the Moment (September 2013)

I have a few more songs I’d like to share with you. I still have quite a bunch of new material to sift through, but for now, this is what I know and like. This post contains mostly songs that I like to listen to unwind after a long and tiresome day at work. And…

Music of the Moment (August 2013)

This blog is not complete without music. I know these posts aren’t to everyone’s taste, but I also don’t like the type of music most people listen to. Sure I like my share of mainstream songs, but my heart lies with indie music. Or at least, music that is less accessible and not always so…

Music of the Moment (June 2013 #1)

Music, oh sweet music! Oh how thee make the world go round. At least mine that is. I am still stuck on listening to some old favorites, but in the pile of music that is my playlist I did discover a few new gems. Think a little bit of instrumental cuteness, combined with indie dance…

Music of the Moment (May 2013 #1)

Once again, I have 5 songs for you to enjoy. From indiepop, indierock to dubstep and folk: there’s a bit of everything again here. Enjoy! 🙂 Clöe Howl – No Strings British indiepop songstress with a very very catchy summery tune. Freedownload included! Knocking Ghost – Distractions Indierock with an electrodance vibe. Dodger – Swisher…

Music of the Moment (April 2013 #3)

Another week, another music of the moment. Here’s 7 songs I’m digging this week. Ben Aqua – Low Bandwith Fantasy Awesome break beat induced indie elektro song. It’s bit in your face, but at the same time it’s kind of relaxing to me in a weird way as well. It revs up a few times,…

Music of the Moment (April 2013 #2)

I have a new favorite song!! And while discovering that I of course found some more gems. Most of these I only just discovered, so I can’t say too much about them yet. All I know is that these popped up on my shuffle list and they stood out from the rest. Since that’s how…

Music of the Moment (April 2013 #1)

This time I have a varied batch of new songs for you. There’s a bit of chillwave (as per usual of course), some electro, a top 40 song (SHOCK!!), some indie pop, and some deep house. Enjoy your Tuesday! Daughter – Youth Cute-sy song at the start but adds some more drums about halfway through…

Music of the Moment (March 2013 #2)

Woohoo, it’s that’s time of the week again: here’s a chuck load of music again for you all to enjoy. Not too much variety this time. It’s all pretty beat heavy and electro/ chill wave influenced, although there are also some dancier type songs and even some full on R&B. Give them a listen and…

Massive music of the Moment (March 2013 #1)

It’s that time of the week again: time for MUSIC! And there’s going to be a lot of it this time round. I finished going through my playlist and while doing that I found quite a few songs that I felt worth sharing. In fact, I found so many that I can fill not one…

Music of the Moment (February 2013 #3)

Today’s music post has a bit of a theme going on: all songs are by bands starting with the letter B. Because I’m a bit OCD like that. 😉 And because I am currently working on cleaning up my random playlist. These songs aren’t necessarily new, but most of them are fairly recent. Bodies of…

Music of the moment (February 2013 #2)

Today’s post will be a quick one. I’m not gonna say too much about these songs. I already spent too much time writing texts behind a computer for one day. So I’m keeping it short but sweet. Just click and listen! Doves – Jetstream Album: Kingdom of Rust. Style: atmospheric rock. Sounds like:  Radiohead, but…

Music of the moment (February 2013 #1)

And then it suddenly strikes you: the urge to blog! I was on the train home last night and while staring off into the black distance beyond the window my hands started to itch. I had to write. I had to blog. So now, at 10.30 PM after just popping in after a walk in…

Favorite songs (January #3)

Another week, another set of songs. Even though I spent most of my time on my couch, I still squeezed in plenty of music. Unfortunately my laptop is gone for repairs and so I’m using my netbook. For some reason it has difficulty playing my playlists, so this past week I’ve resorted to doing something…

Current favorite songs January #2

A new week, a new round of favorite songs! Here’s what I discovered/ listened to this week. Dry the River – No Rest This song came out last year and every time it comes on it strikes me, but I had always forgotten to check which band it was. This song reminds me a bit…

Current favorite songs January #1

With the start of the new year, I also want to change up some of the posts on here. One type of post that I’m gonna keep, but which I want to pour in a slightly different format are the music posts. I want to make weekly current favorites with 5 – 10 songs each…

Current favorite songs (December 2012)

Due to the fact that the year is coming to an end, my current music favorites are coming to you a bit early. But I’m sure you don’t mind. I have plenty of other plans for next week’s post, and yes they also include music (amongst other things). For now, though, we are still focusing…

Current favorite songs (November 2012)

It’s the end of the month and of course I’ve been listening to quite a bit of music again. I started reorganizing my music files again so I also have my list sorted by type of music. I sometimes find myself only wanting to listen to one particular type of music and to then have…

Current favorite songs (October 2012)

I had hardly any time to listen to any new music these past 6 weeks or so. Work has been consuming most of my time and once home I simply didn’t feel like trying to hunt down any new things. It’s not that I haven’t been looking for new music, it’s just that I haven’t…

Current favorite songs

Ever since I started doing the 30 Day Song Challenge I haven’t really been posting anything on my current favorite songs or what I’m listening to right now. That is why I thought it would be time to give you 10 songs that I’m loving right now. Mind you, these songs are completely random and…
