Music from Our Tube; “In the Dirt” by S. Carey

I’ve had “In the Dirt” in my YouTube favorites for some time, but forgot about it until I heard it at the end of an episode of “The Good Wife“;

Sean Carey is the drummer and supporting vocalist of Bon Iver, which puts this song right into context. The almost harsh percussive force and sometimes weird rhythms contrast beautifully with the piano and the layered voices. And there’s some warm woodwind & viola in to even things out.

Music from Our Tube; A/T/O/S – “What I Need”

Last Saturday shortly before midnight I was listening to the radio, my ear-buds plugged in tightly and slowly falling asleep only for this tune to awaken my auditive senses, urging me to wake up and really listen;

A/T/O/S or “A Taste of Struggle” is the project of Belgian producer Truenoys and singer Amos. Their debut album is released on Deep Medi Musik.

Triphop, dark soul and silence as integral part of the music (à la James Blake). Not your average summertime sing-a-long, but a very impressive track nonetheless!

Music from Our Tube; Fatboy Slim & Co raving like it’s 1999

I’ve been to a couple of tech-house events back in the days and I must say this 2013 track does bring back some of those memories;

Music from Our Tube; Child of Lov

I just “discovered” Child of Lov (a.k.a. Martijn Teerlinck, a young man who was born in Belgium/ Flanders but was raised in the Netherlands) and then learned the guy had died after heart surgery 2 months ago. Damn!

His debut album was released in 2013 and got raving reviews from all over the world. If you’re into this kind of thing, listen to the full album here and you’ll understand the fuss. Such a pity.

Music from Our Tube; Everything but the Bearded Man

Before Ben Watt and Tracey Thorn joined forces as Everything but the Girl in 1982, the then 19 year old Ben Watt recorded the EP “Summer Into Winter” with Robert Wyatt. I did not know that, but I heard the haunting “Slipping Slowly” from that EP on East Village Radio yesterday:

Music from Our Tube; Damon Albarn’s Everyday Robots

Damon Albarn (you know, the guy behind Blur & Gorillaz) is about to release a solo album later this year. “Everyday Robots” is the first track released. I really love the downbeat feel of the song & and how almost every instrument has a “percussive role”.

YouTube playlist; Muziek uit “2013″ (Vier)

Omdat “2013” zo’n prachtige televisie was, omdat de muziekkeuze uitmuntend was (erg Duyster-ig eigenlijk met onder andere Apparat, Girls from Hawaii, The National, Junip en Marble Sounds) en omdat Spotify-playlists niets voor mij (en dus misschien ook niet voor U) zijn;
