This blog used to be about music… It really was, but I am not a critic, and my tastes are a bit weird at times. Most music is gone, but I am thinking about bringing it back. I used to have a Friday 5, where I would post five songs I liked every Friday. Maybe I should post on Mondays? One song? Starting today on this Sunday? (I am a woman, I am supposed to be indecisive and inconsequent in my decisions 🙂 Or maybe I am just a little more upbeat than I usually am.) I will not review the music I share, as I feel I am not qualified enough for that, but the songs you’ll find here have touched me in one way or another, or they evoke memories in me.
The songs or links I share don’t belong to me. Support artists you like – buy their art. Pay for music… Lots of time and dedication, as well as money, are put into the songs you like.
Here are some songs for you:
Cardhouse – extra mile
Cardhouse is the project of Daniel Cardoso. Daniel Cardoso is an excellent drummer and producer (he worked with Daniel Cavanagh, Antimatter, Anneke van Giersbergen…), and he is part of the band Anathema. The song “Extra Mile” is taken from his solo debut “City Blur.”
Felix Räuber – wall
This is something very special. I have never heard a song like this before, then again, that doesn’t mean anything. The voice of the singer is unique, I admit it might not be for everyone, but the arrangement of the song is brilliant. The song “wall” is taken from the EP “the Wall” by Felix Räuber. I had the pleasure of briefly talking to this artist years ago when he toured with Maximilian Hecker. Very nice and talented man.
Music has a lot of meaning for me. It takes up a lot of time and place in my life, though, I admit, not as much as it used to. I have been listening to the same music and their satellites for many years now. It has been a while since I heard something that totally blew my mind. But I am very hard to please too. Rest assured, this blog will not turn into a music blog again. I will probably never share the newest songs, and my tastes are various and random, but it is another part of me. Another layer peeled away.
I hope you enjoy the songs. They are both quite electronic for someone who is usually more into prog or singer/songwriter…
