Music

This blog originally started as a Music Blog, somewhere where i could share artists i came across in life and on the internet. My only purpose is to share the music and write a little bit about how each artist makes me feel, i´m a hopeless music lover that can´t play any instruments and know nothing about notes and rhythms. I listen to songs and let myself be wrapped around the sound, i write about that.

Telépopmusik

Telépopmusik is a french electronic trio who has managed to conquer the house music scene. They´ve relased 2 albums and 2 EPs, I believe their first album (Genetic World) is outstanding and is definitely my favorite one. This album sounds to me almost as electronic nature, the elements Telépopmusik use are organic, elegant and unexpected just as nature itself, the perfectly timed beats almost sound like raindrops. Some songs such as “Love Can Damage Your Heart” have classical music in the background accompanying hardcore electronica, this fusion turns out to be addictive.

Recommended songs: “Breathe”, “Love Can Damage Your Heart” and “Close”

Phantogram

Phantogram is an american duo (Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel ) formed in 2007. Their music is a fusion of electronica, rock, trip-hop and shoegaze, their songs are fun, danceable and mostly upbeat.They have two studio albums, one which they released this year: Voices. The duo met in high school and their chemistry is clear in the precision and congruence of their music.

Phantogram is perfect to start the weekend: perfect to dance to, make out to, and drink to.

Agnes Obel

Agnes is a Danish singer/songwriter, she was raised in a musical environment and therefore has grown up to be a very talented musician. Agnes released her first album Philharmonics in 2010, this powerful album gave her international recognition and gave her prizes such as Best Debut Artist Of The Year and Best Female Artist Of The Year. Her second album Aventine was released in 2013 and there are some rumor about the third one coming out next year.

Her music is a wonderful exquisite combination of classical and contemporary music. Agnes versatility is clear in the way she includes and plays with both styles. Soothing, relaxing, happy music that transport you to a comfort zone, away from chaos, traffic and errands.

“The piano and the singing are two equal things to me – maybe not inseparable but very connected. You can say they are like two equal voices.” Agnes Obel

Glen Hansard

I´m profoundly in love with this Irish songwriter who you might recognise from the movie Once. Glen Hansard dropped out of school when he was 13 and played in the streets of Dublin looking for a future in the music industry. Since then he has recorded 9 albums and many EPs. His voice is sweet and his chords take me to a calm, worry free zone. His musical and vocal talent is beyond doubt.

Dillon

Dillon is a young exotic talented woman. She is Brazilian but grew up to be a pianist and singer in Germany and her music is just as exotic and surprising as her culture combination. She has released two albums, the first one in 2011 (This Silence Kills)  and the second one in march 2014 (The Unknown) , both amazing.

Her voice has a very particular sound that im addicted to. Despite the complex lyrics and fusion of classical piano with electronic and house, her music results soothing to me but mainly just interesting. I could listen to her songs a thousand times and still not fully figure them out, there are many phases to each of them, jumping from melancholy to majestic hopeful sounds.

Julien Doré

Julien Doré is a french talented singer -songwriter who rose to fame after winning a french singing reality show in 2007. Since then he has released 3 albums that have been a major success.

His 3 albums are very different from one another. Truth is the first one i don´t really like, I feel there´s a lot going on and an undefined style… but the last two, im in love with. His music is versatile, acoustics, electronica and crazy beats can be found all over his albums. Even though most songs are in french and i cant understand, his scratchy, sensual and tender voice successfully transmits his smooth laid back music style.

His latest single is Chou Wasabi, my favorite song of his so far…i´ve listened to it a thousand times.

FENCES

Fences is the musical project of Christopher Mansfield. He released his first EP, Fences in 2010.

Christopher Mansfield recently released the single “Arrows” of his new album: Lesser Oceans. This song features Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. It took him a while to produce new material and i can´t wait to hear it.
