Music from Our Tube; Better Oblivion Community Center performs “Dylan Thomas”

Live version of a great new song by a new (super-)band by one not-so-new (Conor Oberst) and (given her age) one newish artist (Phoebe Bridgers). Somewhat reminds me of the alternative rock-scene of the nineties (Hole, Throwing Muses and whatnot) and that is a good thing!

Bye September, miss you already

So I forgot to post my customary love-declaration for the month of September, which is as I’m sure everyone will agree the most beautiful month in the world. But when looking outside it still feels very much like September and maybe I was just waiting for Chilly Gonzales to release this beautiful Septemberish tune, which he did last week;

Music from our Tube: At Les, 20 years later

20 years ago I was somewhat into techno and stuff, especially the left-of-center music (and DJ sets) guys like Carl Craig and Stacey Pullen released.

Times change and that jazz thing has caught on pretty big the last couple of years for me. And now there’s Japanese Jazz-maestro Toshio Matsuura covering Carl Craig’s “At Les”. How great is that, right!?

Music from Our Tube: Mopo

As heard on worldwide.fm; Mopo – Tökkö. The sound is vaguely reminiscent of Morphine due to the instrumentation no doubt, but this Finnish trio is more into jazz (their bio states; “The band draws their inspiration from jazz, punk and the Finnish nature”), but they rock big time nonetheless!

If you have time watch a concert of theirs on YouTube and if you dig them; they’ll be playing in Ghent and Leuven this month!

Music from Our Tube; Aimee Mann live on KEXP

Ever since I saw Magnolia I’ve been a fan of Aimee Mann. Not that I know all her songs, not that I listen to her music that regularly, but every time I do I regret having waited that long.

Anyway, she’s still going strong with high-quality songwriting about the not-so-pleasant aspects of life. This is her in the KEXP studios in July 2017, enjoy!
