Shot down by a Blunderbuss

Onverwachts nog last minute aan een school opdracht bezig, maar een goede kans om het vandaag uitgekomen Jack White album te luisteren. Hele goede muziek, even delen 😉

Blunderbuss – Jack White

After some last minute late night school work giving Jacks new album a first listen. Damn It’s good,

Blunderbuss has been described by himself as “an album I couldn’t have released until now. I’ve put off making records under my own name for a long time but these songs feel like they could only be presented under my name. These songs were written from scratch, had nothing to do with anyone or anything else but my own expression, my own colors on my own canvas.”  Just listen to it and you will hear what he’s on about.

just thought I’d share it. Title track is my favourite song on it for now, click on the link for a listen. And is it me or is the album cover remarkably 90’s?

Long sundays can be nice after all

På søndager der det skifter mellom dryppende regn, strålende sol og iskalde vinder, er det fint å ha noe å se på, høre på, eller lese på når det blir for kaldt eller vått ute. Eller hvis naboene dine er veldig irriterende og sager i isopor fordi de bygger på huset. Eller fordi et familiemedlem lager middag som lukter like deilig som nyklippet gress.

Spin that record!

Morgen is het weer zo ver, de derde zaterdag van april, Record Store Day 2012. Feestje bij je plaatselijke platenzaak, live muziek en vooral sicke special vinyl releases ter ere van deze dag.


Vorig jaar een aantal mooie en speciale platen gescoord, Ik werkte toen nog fulltime en hoefde nergens naar om te kijken, zalig.

Mooie specials van The Villagers, Fleet Foxes, Isbells en een gesigneerde single van The Daydream Club mee naar huis gebracht. Dit jaar heeft het niet zo mogen zijn en blijf ik morgen thuis maar ik heb om mezelf te martelen toch even een korte wishlist gemaakt die ik met jullie zal delen.

En eigenlijk vooral nog echt heel heel heel veel meer prachtige platen die morgen vruchteloos eenzaam in de bakken liggen te wachten tot ik ze een thuis kom geven. Hier is de volledige lijst met uitgaves in Nederland te vinden. Je vind daar ook een lijst met platenzaken die meedoen maar eigenlijk doet iedere zichzelf een beetje respecterende platenzaak wel mee.

Tomorrow its the third Saturday of April again, Record Store Day 2012. Lots of really nice special vinyl releases coming out, and nice parties at local record stores. Will have to skip a year myself but I made a little wish list none the less 😉
