This year was all about emotions, bravery, and women's voice. Bring back your memories with this compilation of what was the best about music in 2017 - sincerity, openness, and reflexivity. (The songs' order is non-evaluative.)
Let's experiment with our emotions. Or let's get emotional about our experiments. This mixture of alternative music, rock, and musical otherness will bring you to an other dimension.
Screw it. Rock is the best. And it tastes great when served with a pinch of electronic flavor.
Delicate electronica meets acoustic sound. It's time for reflection, rest, relax, and a little bit of dancing.
Delicate, nostalgic, liberating, and a little emotionally painful. Music for your lonesome evenings.
Dark, intense, and beautifully affecting. Songs that will pull you out of your comfort zone and put you in an emotional rollercoaster.
Experimental songs with emotional depth. Concentrate. Relish. Think. And don't forget to enjoy.
Brace yourself. Autumn is coming. Cover yourself with this moving and subtle collection of songs for long evenings.
This is a heavy listen. Massive songs with an indie feel and a monumental strength. Converge, LCD Soundsystem, Brand New, Car Seat Headrest, Black Lips, Elder and more.
Soft, nostalgic, sorrowful, but warm songs fill this playlist consisting of songs by such artists like The National, The Accidentals, David Crosby, and Cloud Control.
Let's take some time off and listen to these synth-filled downtempo tunes. Enjoy an atmosphere full of dreamy wonder, tension and relief. Brought to you by Moses Sumney, The Horrors, Destroyer, Mount Kimbie, Belle & Sebastian.
Grizzly Bear came back after five years of break. While their previous LP, Shields, was a marvel full of imaginative and sophisticated compositions, Painted Ruins were expected to deliver pretty much the same. But let's be clear. It did not. Promotional singles were a prelude to what became a compilation of well executed, but watered-down, … Continue reading Grizzly Bear – Painted Ruins
A journey from anxiety, through angst, sorrow, redemption, to contemplation and peace. Soundtrack provided by Hans Zimmer, Arcade Fire, Nine Inch Nails, The War on Drugs, Grizzly Bear, Angelo Badalamenti and more.
Remember Bob Dylan's Self Portrait? Well, there it goes again. Arcade Fire come back with Everything Now - their weirdest and probably weakest LP to date.
Listen to the playlist presenting a subtle art of rock, pop, delicate voices and soothing synths with a pinch of nostalgia and sorrow. Brought to you by Arcade Fire, Rhye, Chris Stapleton, Jerry Martin, The Who, and more.
This review is dedicated to all those people who think this album is a huge disappointment. I thought so as well. But then I listened to it again and again, and everything changed.
Listen to a dark mixture of rock, metal, youthful indie, electronica, and experimental music, presented by both classic and modern tunes. Brought to you by Floating Points, The Afghan Whigs, Slipknot, System of a Down, Feist and more. 2
A playlist for those who appreciate some great alternative rock mixing with sound collages, sonic experiments, and a little bit of marvelous classical and modern electronica. The Afghan Whigs, Ghostpoet, Villagers, Frank Ocean, Gorillaz, Kraftwerk and more.
Tara Jane O'Neil's self-titled album is named add some music's album of the week.
There's time for a joy, there's time for an anxiety, there's time for reflection. And transitions between those feelings can sometimes be radical, instantaneous, and involuntary. These harsh shifts are presented here by Paramore, Gromee, Lana Del Rey, Harry Styles and more.
Pride, intensity, and darkness meets in this rnb-filled, rock-driven, night-covered playlist. Kamasi Washington, Kendrick Lamar, D'Angelo, Pearl Jam, Chris Stapleton, Steely Dan and more.
Kendrick Lamar's latest album DAMN. is named add some music's album of the week. And it's pretty damn fine. But it's not that easy...
Sometimes I have a feeling I'm no longer listening to Timber Timbre, but to young alternative universe version of Bob Dylan with dreamy synths (Velvet Gloves & Spit). Or just electronica-inspired I'm Not There soundtrack. Or mellow Arcade Fire/David Bowie (Grifting). Or Leonard Cohen (Western Questions)?! Or dreamy, contemplative Bruce Springsteen? Either way, Sincerely, Future Pollution … Continue reading Timber Timbre – Sincerely, Future Pollution
This is a journey through rock, electronica, acoustic thrill and folk sadness, which concludes with a metal's grand finale. Brought to you by Goldfrapp, British Sea Power, Mastodon, Julia Holter and many more.
Aimee Mann's Mental Illness is an album full of beautiful, lightly produced, intense and dark folk music. Its form of coherent atmosphere is full of charm, but also frightening. Just like its cover art.
March started with wonderful new singles by alt-J, Afghan Whigs, Coldplay, and a great comeback by Grandaddy. Then it went downhill. Black Sabbath has finally disbanded after farewell tour. An era has ended with Chuck Berry's death. But there's still hope. We got fantastic new albums by Laura Marling, Mount Eerie (yes, I'm still crying), … Continue reading Music Recap: March 2017
This is where melancholy merges with strong statements, heartbreak with mellow musical collages, classics with modern sounds, rock with electronica and rap. This is where you find darkness, even sadness, yet peace and a potential for lightness. Kendrick Lamar, Gorillaz, Mount Eerie and more.
I've spent a lot of time playing GTA V this week. Its world is as fictitious as it can get, vivid, over-exaggerated, brutal, full of specific humor. Listening to Mount Eerie after such experience is a very rough, cold shower. A Crow Looked At Me brings you back to earth with soul-wrenching stories, menalcholic melodies, … Continue reading Album of the Week: Mount Eerie – A Crow Looked At Me
Yeah, ok. But what did we really expect? I mean, ok, it's nice, easy-listening, but that's all. Ed Sheeran's third studio LP ÷ lacks the artistic strengths of + and x. There's no song that reminds me of the magnificent achievements like Give Me Love, Photograph or even Thinking Out Loud. Instead we got another set of pop, but … Continue reading Ed Sheeran – ÷
