My summer jam: Bibio – Silver Wilkinson

You probably know how I love to discover new music and today I would like to share with you music by one particular artist that instantly makes your day a little bit brighter and summer just a tad nearer. I present to you: Bibio. I have been purchasing quite a few CDs these past few…

Rediscovered favorite songs

These past week I’ve been too busy to get a good grasp of any of the new music that has been coming out. I haven’t checked any of my trusty indieplaylists since late March and to be honest: I haven’t felt like it one bit. What I tend to do when I am feeling a…

SXSW – Free songs

On March 13th one of the largest music festivals in the world, SXSW, started again. As a musician it’s an honor to play there and many artists get picked up by record companies and the like. It is a very versatile festival with not only indie artists, but also some hip hop and dance oriented…

All Time Classic Songs

You know how there are these songs that have been around for such a long time and that are so widespread that you feel everyone knows them? Now what constitutes a classic song is a very personal and subjective process. People know music based on the people they meet, what they go through in life…

Current Favorite Songs January 2012

It’s been A-G-E-S since I last wrote a blog on my current favorite songs. The main reason for it being that I hadn’t been able to sort through my newly downloaded songs due to time constraints. Sure I wrote about a few bits and bobs here and there, but I hadn’t gone over my trusty…

Top 11 in Music of 2011

I thought it would be a good idea to devote the final days of 2011 to a bit of reminiscing on what things 2011 has brought. The first post will be devoted to all things music related. I will list my favorite songs, my favorite albums AND my favorite concerts of the past year. I…

Favorite work out songs

You will never find me working out on a treadmill or anything like that. I have tried it, did some elliptical and rowing machines but as enthusiastic as I might be about it for about a week, that’s how much I hate it later on. Regular gym routines are not for me, which is why…

Current favorite songs: September

I have a few more songs for you that I’ve been listening to on repeat for the past couple of weeks. And when searching for when I posted something like this the last time, it occurred to me it had been a month since I did. So, maybe I could turn this into a monthly…

Song Challenge 01 – Your favorite song

I already posted about my favorite song when I did the 30 Day Blog Challenge. I picked Mesh 29’s Over the Barricade. This is still my favorite song, but since I have tons of favorite songs it certainly doesn’t end there. It’s actually the reason why I decided to post songs of the day. When…

Song rip offs: killing two covers with one song

Do you know that feeling? The feeling you get when you find out that a song you love(d) turns out to be a complete rip off? Well I do! When I was 16/ 17 years old Sugababes released the following song to celebrate having a new group member: I freaking loved this song to pieces….

Spinner.com – Free SXSW songs

Spinner.com is a website which I check quite often to see what’s new in music. One of their exclusive features is a free daily MP3 download of mostly upcoming indie bands. I was checking the site out the other day and found they now have a 3 part download up for 140 songs by bands…

My favorite cover songs

You know what they say about cover songs: they never beat the original. Well, except for a few cases then. Some covers are simply better than the original and here are a few of my favorites. First up is 311 – Love Song. This song is originally by The Cure and in itself 100% awesome….

Some new music I’ve been enjoying

As some of you may know I’ve been trying to update & reorganize my music collection for the past couple of days. As of yet, I’m still not done with that. It takes a while when you have many songs and I hate doing anything half-assed, so that’s why it’s taking some time to get…

Blog Challenge Day 15: Songs that match my mood

Today marks my 15th consecutive day of blogging, which means after today I’m half way through with the challenge. And what better way then to share with you the songs I like to play when I’m in certain moods. I’m pretty tired after a full day of shopping (it’s a sport), so I’m gonna keep…

The Playlist Series #2: Dance music

I thought it was time for another installment of the playlist series. When I first launched this project, Taryn asked me to give some more insight into my Dance folder. That is why I’ve decided to make this next post about Dance music. If you want to place a request for a certain type of…

The Playlist Series

Today I came up with an idea for my blog: to start a series on my different music play lists. As the subtitle of this blog says: I’m a ‘music loving language nut’, that ‘music loving’ is shown by the amount of music I have and listen to. Not a single day goes by without…
