SONG PICK: Juniper Stone – Moonchild

While browsing through the press release for “Moonchild,” I landed on “written during,” and my immediate reaction was “not another written during quarantine song, please!” By now almost everything is written during the pandemic because… it’s going on for a while.

The Famous Daxx

SONG PICK: Dutch Mustard – What The People Want

Dutch Mustard muse about “What The People Want” in their new and super catchy single.

VIDEO PICKS: Jem, talker, POND, Telltale

Jem Turkish singer/songwriter Jem released his debut single “Secrets” together with a meditative video filmed by Mu Tunc. Jem says about the song: Sometimes I visualise my songs before writing them. With this song, imagery came to me in a dream-like state, and all I did was react musically to[…]

DJ_Dave

SONG PICK: DJ_Dave – Still Miss U

Veronica Everheart

SONG PICK: Veronica Everheart – Antiquity

“Antiquity” is about adjusting to new realities after a breakup. “You are left feeling cold and disoriented, facing remnants of the recent past,” singer/songwriter Veronica Everheart describes the situation.

Tara Nome Doyle

SONG PICK: Tara Nome Doyle – Snail I

If you look at the song titles of the new album “Værmin” by Berlin-based, Irish-Norwegian singer/songwriter Tara Nome Doyle, they indeed almost all refer to vermin. Except for the crow, which is curiously a predator of all the other animals on the list. The album will be out on January[…]
