Listen To This II | Music

Listen To This is a series where I introduce you to some of my favourite songs at the moment. These are some of the songs that blew my mind, surprised me in some way or are just plainly awesome. I listen to these songs on repeat so often that I wonder how it’s even possible that I’m still not tired of hearing them. As I listen to music every single day and it’s a big part of my life, I feel like it’s important to let other people know some of these songs so they don’t miss out on greatness.
The images contain a link to the corresponding Spotify-page of that song, so you can just go ahead and listen to these right away and I highly encourage you to do so.


Death Row – Jimi Charles MoodyIslington
For some reason, every time I put on some music this is the song that I’ll start with. I don’t know why, but it has something that I really like.
The four songs on Islington are all great, so definitely check out those as well and especially Other Man.
I just recently found out about him and apparently he hasn’t been around for long either. As far as I can see he has only released five songs thus far. When he finally releases a full-length album, I’ll definitely be there to give it a try.


EasyFeels – Son Mieux
I can understand if you haven’t yet heard of Son Mieux. It’s a band from the Netherlands who only have three songs released, for now anyway. In 2015, they released Feels and Easy and in the beginning of this month their latest song came out called Even. Feels is probably my favourite one so far, but Even comes in as a close second.
I think they have a quite unique sound and it’s really enjoyable. They are definitely a band to look out for in the future.

Playlist Shuffle | Tag

A tag where we can recommend music to other people? Count me in. I truly enjoy having people get to know some of your favourite songs. That’s also one of the main reasons of my Listen to this-post (which might as well turn into a series as I really liked writing that one). Now for this tag you have to put your music on shuffle and list the first 15 songs that start to play. Now the tag says that you shouldn’t cheat, but I guess I kind of have to. I won’t be shuffling my entire music library as I haven’t used that one for a while now. Instead I’ll be using the Spotify-playlist I listen to most. At the moment it contains about seventy songs, so I guess that’ll be enough to deliver some random songs.

The Infinity Dreams | Awards

So I was nominated for the Infinity Dreams Award by Lashaan and Trang from Bookidote. I am very honoured and thankful to be part of this community. I’m currently having a hard time reading and watching things, since I have a lot of tasks for school to do, but I’m definitely trying.
I find it really hard to find interesting facts about myself, so don’t expect too much from this post.

Listen To This | Music

Listen To This is a series where I introduce you to some of my favourite songs at the moment.I play these songs on repeat so much that I wonder how it’s possible that I’m still not tired of hearing them. These are some of the songs that blew my mind, surprised me or are just plainly awesome. As I listen to music every single day and it’s a big part of my life, I feel like it’s important to let other people know some of these songs so they don’t miss out on greatness. I’m a daily user of Spotify and I couldn’t live without it. It’s super easy to keep track of all your favourite songs and artists, but also to discover new and unknown ones. That Discover Weekly-playlist is a gift from heaven and that may even be an understatement.

Ophelia – The Lumineersophelia-single-art---hi-res
The Lumineers are coming out with a new album this year called Cleopatra. Their first album was a great one and I think this one will be even better. The first single released­ from the album is Ophelia and I’ve been loving it ever since I first heard it. There’s something about this song that I always want to sing along and it makes me feel happy as well.
I unfortunately missed the tickets sale for their concert here in Belgium since it’s sold-out now, but I’ll definitely buy their album as soon as it comes out.


Way Down We GoWay Down We Go – Kaleo
I have already mentioned this song as my favourite one, for now, in the Get To Know Me tag. I wanted to include it here as well, because you really have to check it out. Seriously.
Kaleo is an Icelandic band who in early 2015 moved to the United States. They don’t have that many songs or at least not on Spotify, but I reckon they’ll release more in the future. Their song No Good is featured in the HBO tv series Vinyl.

Get To Know Me | Tag

Since my blog is still rather new, I thought this tag might be interesting for some of you. I wasn’t really tagged by anyone, but I thought I’d do this anyway. Here are a couple of questions about me, so you can get to know me a bit better. Aside from what I said already on the about page.

How many siblings do you have? I have one older sister.

What is your middle name? My middle name is Lydia, which is the name of my grandmother and I’m very proud of it.

What was your favourite subject at school? I’m still studying, so right now I would have to say Graphic Design. Though next semester that will probably change.

What is your favourite drink? I am addicted to Coca Cola.

What is your favourite song at the moment? Way Down We Go by Kaleo. If you don’t know it, you should definitely listen to it. It’s great.
