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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Music of the Moment (September 2015)

It’s the final Thursday of the month and so it’s time to share some of my latest music favorites again. Most of these songs were released in the past 6 months or so. Meaning not all of these songs are super new per se, but I usually play catch up over summer, finding more music…

Tuned up Thursday: Music ABC – S

Today’s music post is venturing into known waters again for me. Each song listed here has been a favorite for years. There is only one song that was released in the new millennium on here, so we are going back in time a good deal again. Let’s see what another dive into the depths of…

Tuned up Thursday: Music of the Moment (August 2015)

It’s spanking new music time! I FINALLY had time during my vacation to sort through my gathering of indie playlists again. I had 3 months worth of new music which had piled up during my super hectic end of the school year time, my absence due to my vacation and then some. So this list…

Tuned up Thursday: Songs of the Week #15

I’m a little late to the party for today’s post, but I wasn’t able to write the blog post yesterday. I spent a good few hours upgrading my laptop to the new Windows 10 and so I wasn’t able to use my laptop for a while. And that left me with too little time to…

Tuned up Thursday: Music ABC – R

I am a person with a very random taste in music and I share that randomness with you in these monthly posts. Today we are looking at the letter R of my Music ABC of all time music favorites. I have little bit of 90s nostalgia for you, an actress who ended up being quite…

Tuned up Thursday: What I listened to in my teens #2

Since music is such a personal thing, I love sharing some of my old favorite songs and give you an insight into my music tastes and share something about myself at the same time. I already did one last November, and now I have another 10 songs to share. Alanis Morissette – Joining You I…

Tuned up Thursday: Music of the Moment (July 2015)

It’s nearing the end of July already and that means it’s time for me to share my monthly music favorites with you again. I wasn’t sure whether I should wait with this another week, but then I found so many songs I liked, that I figured I had gathered enough music to share with you…

Tuned up Thursday: Songs of the week #14

So much music, only so much time to listen to it all. And even less time (and space) to post it all on here. It’s only natural then that a lot of tracks that I end up selecting for my shortlist end up slipping through the net and would never see the light of day,…

Tuned up Thursday: Summer songs

It’s summer! And that means it’s time for summery music too of course. From easy chillwave tracks to fun sing-a-long songs: I have gathered 10 songs for you that I am digging for the summer time. I hope you enjoy, give them a listen and check out my older blog posts too at the end…

Tuned up Thursday: Music ABC – Q

The letter Q, not an easy one to find many songs for. That’s why this is a bit of a mish mesh of different songs. None of these songs are necessarily life long favorites, but they just sound nice. From tango music all the way to French chansons: like always I’m taking you on a…

Tuned up Thursday: Music of the Moment (June 2015)

After skipping April and bringing back this post in full swing in May, it is again back in June, but not without difficulty. I have had so little time to actually be listening to music, yet again, that most of the picks I am showing you today are a) not that new and b) very…

Tuned up Thursday: Songs of the Week #13

YAY for new music! These past few weeks I made a few new discoveries again and dug some older tracks. Rather than wait to post about them in my monthly Music of the Moment overview, I decided to share them again with you. Here’s 5 songs I’ve been digging. Bent Knee – Sunshine As sweet…

Tuned up Thursday: Music of the Moment (May 2015)

Whoopsie daisy! I completely forgot to gather my April music favorites last month. Unfortunately I hadn’t had much time to find many new songs as I was so busy and this month I only just managed. So today’s list is again a random gathering of indie finds, without too much explanation. This list was compiled…

Tuned up Thursday: Songs of the Week #12

I have a couple of random favorites that I gathered from my more recent music endeavors. In April all I had time for was to listen to albums that I bought in the past few weeks as so many new things had been coming out. I am slowly making my way back to my indie…

Tuned up Thursday: Songs of the Week #11

I have a few more songs for you that have been slipping under my radar. But some of them are still good enough to be sharing on here. So these are some indie music finds that I have heard and loved for various reasons. Just give them a listen and let me know what you…

Tuned up Thursday: Music ABC – N

Time to dig through the vaults of my music collection again and come up with some of my all time favorite songs. There are quite a few songs in here today that are quite new. Only one, true golden oldie and then there’s some classic 90s R&B for you to swoon by. I hope you…

Tuned up Thursday: Music of the Moment (March 2015)

Final Thursday of the month, means it’s time for me to be sharing some of my favorite new discoveries. I had a hard time compiling a list again. I did have time to go through all of the playlists from February and March, but I hadn’t had enough time to listen to it all. So…
