For more than a year it’s been bugging me that iTunes “sometimes” would auto-rate played tracks. It happened on some albums, yet not all albums. Back in May 2018 I posted this video on YouTube showing the behaviour: As you can see iTunes here automatically rates “En Masse” (track 10) from the moment it starts […]
From their third album “Cocoa Sugar”, an album that already made it into my “2018 – Best Of” playlist — It’s that good! Listen to it here. 🎧 Be sure to also check out their other two albums if you’re new to Young Fathers. Their first album “Dead” amazed me back in 2014.
Alex Somers, partner of Sigur Rós’ Jónsi, has created the music for the Black Mirror episode “Hang the DJ”. I really like the album Alex has created for this episode. Next to “Into Place” and “Out There” the track “End” (featuring Sigur Rós) really stands out: Feels like classic Sigur Rós / Jónsi. Listen on […]
Great piece by Resident Advisor on the magnificent Untrue album by Burial: Ten years since its release, we unpack the creative process behind one of electronic music’s most mysterious classics.
Every time I hear Radiohead’s Videotape I grab back this first episode of Earworm, a series by Vox on music. It’s a brilliant analysis of the brilliant rhythm that drives this song.
Yesterday I’ve tweeted about this one, but it’s too great to not mention here too. It’s the video clip for “Bear Claws” by “The Academic”. For this video the band has used the lag of a Facebook Live video to their advantage. By doing so, they’ve created a loop sampler. Also note the clever use […]

“The Lotus Tree” is a “Rock, Sludge, Metal, Post-Metal, Post-Rock” band from my hometown Deinze. Although I’m no big fan of metal nor screamo-stuff, I am a rather big post-rock fan (Slint!), thus making me like their sound. Whilst listening to this one I found myself nodding along with the track, and getting drawn into […]
