Kate Bollinger – No Other Like You

With her recent release “No Other Like You“ Kate Bollinger has yet again proved her talent and songwriting skills. After her single Talk About It and her EP I Don’t Wanna Lose , which she released earlier this summer,
No Other Like You is fits in well with the rest of her songs, but it still manages to stand out: It is more acoustic, with a simple guitar, bass and drum combo and less of her usual tech-y sounds – very refreshing, even if you enjoy the rest of her discography.
Bollinger’s calm voice combined with the smoothness of the instruments in the background makes me want to lie on gras and fall into a light slumber on a sunny fall day. A definite must for every fall playlist.

B Boys – B Boys Anthem

Despite its shortness „B Boys Anthem“ might be one of the best post-punk songs currently. The first song of B Boys’ studio album Dada lures you in so you can’t help but listen to it multiple times and with its slapping bassline you groove along without noticing it.

Ilgen-nur – po​wer nap

Many of my German friends say that they do not like any german music because they consider it to be generic and boring. And if you talk about the music commercial radios play – I agree. But boy, there is some goooood German music out there. One of my current favorites is Ilgen-Nur from Hamburg.

BLOOD CULTURES – BROADCASTING

Blood Cultures is certainly not a new band. Having been around since 2013, the band has made itself a name in the indie-pop scene. Their image is based around their anonymity- similar to Daft Punk, Blood Cultures have always worked to keep their identities unknown (which might be part of why they are so intriguing).

Broadcasting is of of Blood Culture’s newest release „Oh Uncertainty! A Universe Despairs“ that I have been obsessed with ever since it came out. The upbeat tempo and fun vocals have been getting me through these grey fall weeks. Broadcasting is a great example for the band’s unique sound that clearly distinguishes them from other contemporary bands. Their danceable sound is perfect for every happy, uptempo playlist, every party, or even just driving down the highway when the sun is finally making its reappearance.

Maddie Jay

Maddie Jay has recently dropped her new song „I Got You“ straight from her bedroom studio. With dream-pop vocals mixed with a strong bassline and synths, the „self-proclaimed bedroom producer“ has given the term bedroom-pop a new meaning.

Yot Club

Yot Club is not an artist you can easily put into a specific genre. Ryan Kaiser’s solo project is diverse and eclectic finding different ways to use instruments, synths, and diverse vocals with almost every song. The Mississippi based artist uses a variety of different sounds, ranging from pop-y sounding guitars to a synth that most definitely sets him apart from many artists in a similar niche.

Top Ten: Arctic Monkeys

If you know me, you know that one of my favorite bands is Arctic Monkeys (and have been for years, my very first indie-rock love), so I felt it was only fair to do a list of my Top 10 songs by them. And it wasn’t easy, I feel like I left some of my children at the pit stop and only realised it after we were driving for half an hour.

My favorite albums of theirs are Suck It and See, and Favourite Worst Nightmare, however, there’s a good mix of songs from every album in this list.

So without any further rambling, here are my favorite Artic Monkeys songs, in no particular order. Hope you enjoy it.

Friday’s Favourite: Fleetwood Mac – Rumours

I was first introduced to Fleetwood Mac by my Mum, who was obsessed with their song “Oh Diane” from their album Mirage, which led to me listening to that particular album by Fleetwood Mac casually for a really long time. My Mum even owned the album on record, so when she gave me her collection I grew more and more familiar with Fleetwood Mac, however, I never really listened to any other of their records (I might have heard “Dreams” a couple of times before, but who knows)
But, one day as luck would have it, I stumbled across Rumours on Spotify (or Apple Music, whatever I was using at that time), gave it a listen and haven’t been the same ever since.
Rumours is still Fleetwood Mac’s most popular album to this date and Dreams was their only song to become a Number 1 hit.
