The War On Drugs - Live on KEXP

This band has probably made the one record that will be hard to beat in 2014. It is named ‘Lost in the dream’ and bathes in americana with a classic 80’s rock mood. Adam Granduciel is the name of the singer and band leader, that you need to remember … Don’t miss out on this full performance they did on KEXP Radio!

Johnny Cash - She used to love me a lot (new official video)

'Out amongst the stars' is a recently released record by the Man In Black. Legend - ahum - has it that it was lost since 1980 when it was originally recorded. This is the lead video … brilliant music and lyrics as ever.

Neneh Cherry talking about her new album ‘Blank project’

Worth the wait: the new longplayer Swedish/American singer Neneh Cherry made with musicians Rocketnumbernine and producer Kieran Hebden (aka Four Tet). This terrific mixture of triphop, pop and electronica might be the best thing I heard this year … far more underground than her previous stuff, but very addictive.

Lykke Li - No rest for the wicked

New song from the upcoming album ‘I never learn’, which is released worldwide May 5th. She proves to be one of most interesting singers in temporary pop music. I’m also very happy that she joined the Best Kept Secret (June 21-22-23) line-up this week!

Neneh Cherry ft Robyn - Out of the black (official video)
'Blank Project' is the first Neneh Cherry album in sixteen years. This amazing new track, featuring Swedish pop singer Robyn, is on it and is blessed with a brilliant video that blinks at the eighties. 
The new album is produced by Kieran Hebden aka Four Tet, which is also very important to know.

Paolo Nutini - Scream (Funk my life up) (Official video)

This one makes me look forward to that season when the sun climbs just a little bit higher … lead single for his first album in five years, called ‘Caustic love’!

The Rapture break up
DFA Records confirms that New York based punkfunk band The Rapture is breaking up. They were a big hype in the beginning of this century, with the huge hit ‘House of jealous lovers’, which was strongly supported by the scene lead by (amongst others) LCD Soundsystem and Soulwax. In 2011 The Rapture made a well received new album, that includes this smash: How deep is your love?

Tinariwen - Chaghaybou (live)
Before the critically acclaimed talkshow De Wereld Draait Door on Dutch television starts, they ask their musical guests to play a full version of the song they will bring during the episode. This is Tinariwen playing a hypnotic piece called ‘Chaghaybou’, several minutes before going live on air … Not an easy crowd for desert blues rock, but Tinariwen pulled it off.
