SOTD: Eaves – Bemidji

Hellloooww! Today I have a super-duper relaxed chilled out song in this quick and dirty post. I had a long but inspiring day at work yesterday hence the short post. I simply had no time to write something elaborate. So just hit play and let this chillwave song wash over you. I’ll be back tomorrow…

SOTD: Yeasayer – Devil in the Deed

A quicky post today as I didn’t get home until midnight last night and am swamped in a big pile of exams and assignments that need signing. This song came on while I was walking home yesterday and I instantly liked it. It’s a bit strange at first, but it is also super catchy. Enjoy!…

SOTD: Adam Lambert – Trespassing

And now for something completely different! I had to dance to this song on Wednesday evening and I immediately loved the song. I already loved some of his older songs, but this song beats them all by a mile. I mean, it’s got a beat, guitar bits and is reminiscent of Another One Bites the…

SOTD: Braids – Peach Wedding

I have gotten back to my old scheme of listening to my playlist from A-Z and this song suddenly came on. I thought it would be perfect for the blog. Despite the dreary weather, this makes me feel warm and fuzzy, as if I can still feel the afterglow of summer. I don’t know why,…

SOTD: Neon Indian – Ephemeral Artery

During weekends I always tend to listen to some music that doesn’t necessarily fall into my comfort zone. I will scour the interwebs, my own playlists and record shelves to find gems that I may have overlooked, never heard before or rediscover. Since I have been so busy with work these past few weeks I…

SOTD: Marcus Foster – Shadows of the City

I have been playing this song over and over for the past few weeks. Every single time I hear it I want to burst out in song. I love how it starts all quiet and melancholy and just swells to this amazing song. I managed to find the official video as well as too amazing…

SOTD: Said the Whale – New Brighton

A quick post today as I decided to start my vacation in style yesterday: lazy, on the couch, watching CSI and listening to music. It was just this morning that I realized I hadn’t prepared a post yet. So that is why today brings you something sweet and simple. I am currently obsessing over this…

SOTD: The Daylight Braves – Summer at Last

A few days ago I sorted through 500+ songs to find what I liked and what I didn’t like. My instant favorite from the bunch is this song by The Daylight Braves. It’s called Summer at Last and definitely better suited for warmer and sunnier weather. But I like listening to summer songs when temperatures…

SOTD: Pete Roe – Bellina

This song is so so pretty! I am totally in love with it. It’s featured on the Flowerpot Sessions CD which also features Angus & Julia Stone, Sarah Blasko, Marcus Foster, Matthew & the Atlas, Damien Rice, and many more.

SOTD: Mutemath – Blood Pressure

Yup, another one. I just can’t get enough of all this new music I’m finding. Mutemath (of Transformers and Twilight fame) are releasing their third album Odd Souls in October and their first single just released on soundcloud. It’s a song called Blood Pressure and combines all the things I love from this ground: a…

SOTD: Laura Marling – Sophia

As the 30 Day Song Challenge is now over (everyone: aaaaaaawwwwwwwwww) I will resort back to posting songs that I am loving at the moment: my Song of the Day (SOTD). Here’s the first one of I’m sure a long session to come. Yesterday I found out that Laura Marling will be releasing a new…

SOTD: Beige – In Kind

I tried installing a player so you could instantly play the amazing song below, but alas, I couldn’t find it quickly enough. So if you have any ideas on how to get an ACTUAL mp3 player to work on WordPress, feel free to help me out! Now on to the music: Beige – In Kind…

SOTD: Mumford & Sons – Hold on to What You Believe In

Seeing they just performed at the Grammy’s with Bob Dylan and won big at the Brit Awards, Mumford & Sons definitely deserve a spot on here as well. Hold on to What You Believe In is NOT on the album ‘Sigh No More’, but it’s one of their best songs if you ask me. Check…

SOTD: The Bees – Silverline

I was thinking of posting songs separately like I have done over the past few weeks. Let me know what you think? Do you prefer these Song of the Day posts? Or do you prefer seeing lists and lists of songs? Anywho. Without further ado, I present to you, The Bees featuring the cutest song…

SOTD: Bobby Long – Penance Fire Blues

Awesome song. And the live performance of it is amazing. I just love this guys’ voice! I have a few of his other songs which I know a bit better than this one, but I loved this as soon as I heard it. Will post those other songs in due time as other Songs of…

SOTD: De Staat – Sweatshop

Latest single by Dutch band De Staat. New album Machinery out March 4th! Lyrics: 1st man: I’ve been working all damn day in this sweatshop, It’ll feel like I’m dyin’ but I won’t stop, I don’t mind, cause I’m the kind of guy, I’m pumpin’ out till the end of time. 2nd deeper man: I’ve…

Song of the Day

This will be a quicky, cuz I don’t have much time to blog at all today. I’ve been super busy. Got up at 6 AM, taught an 8.30 AM class, had an interview with students, went to class at uni and only just got home (a little after 7 PM) and I’m now having dinner…
