Mid-Week Music

If someone told me last week that I'd be sick from a fucking cold for at least an entire week I would have laughed until I cried. Yet, here I am. Still not well. Sure, there's only been one entire day of rest and I've heard that's what you're supposed to do but yeah. Whatever. …

It's time for some Bauhaus again and what could be better than showing off a vinyl record? I've had this EP for some time now, it's the 12" maxi single from Beggars Banquet and it's about 36 years old. Fuck, the 80's are starting to feel like a pretty long time ago, at least in …

Top 5 Obsessions

Herbariet by Elin Unnes. It's a Swedish book by a Swedish author but it's too awesome to not mention. It's a about plants, food and folklore and the language is sharp and entertaining. I hope it gets translated soon, it fucking deserves to be. Bates Motel season 5. I haven't gotten around to the last …

Mid-Week Music

Yeah it's Monday. I'm still doing this mid-week post because I found a band. "Unusually depressing Scandinavian music" is how Analfabetism describes the sound of the album. I think it's just the one guy creating the music, music that doesn't sound human or even from this earth but still so EXTREMELY interesting. This is ambient, …

Mid-Week Music

Today has been a long, long, long day with a migraine from hell. It just subsided and I'm celebrating with listening to music, something I just can't stand when the head hurts to the point of feeling sick. The music is nothing less than Black Tape for a Blue Girl with the album As One …

I have sinned and ordered something new. But it is a vinyl record and it's been on my wish list for a couple of years. It's the album Kalt by Kælan Mikla. They only pressed a very limited amount when they first released the album back in 2016 and now they're releasing it in two new editions. …

Mid-Week Music

Right now there's an ongoing city festival here and there's an insane amount of tourists (mainly German), music and food from all over the world. There's a party wherever there is room and the spirits are high. It started yesterday and ends on Saturday night. I'm not a fan of the overcrowding streets and have …

Mid-Week Music

Seems like forever. Yeah, a blog post started just like this not too long ago and now the long awaited vinyl record has arrived. It's probably the fastest overseas shipping in five years or more, but don't think Murphy isn't paying attention. Our receiver broke down. So I can't listen to it or any other …

Mid-Week Music

Is there such a thing as a combo of medieval folk music and darkwave? Yes, there is Unto Ashes and they released a new album in May this year. They've got a massive back catalogue, use a lot of unusual instruments and I can imagine that fans of Dead Can Dance might appreciate them. I …
