"It is wonderful to be able experience art without understanding how it was meant or what makes it good." (Kim Boekbinder said that during an interview I did with her) I might not have the biggest knowledge about music but I have a great passion for it. Passion is what counts.
I live in Berlin, Germany (born, raised and still resident) and this is my personal blog about music and other things that cross my way. Things I love to be exact. And even though I am German and my English is still not perfect, this blog is in English.
Fancy an encore? Of course you do, that’s why I am happy to bring you another very good best of 2012 list from one of my all time favourite band: VETO! You know, it’s just maths that the 13. list had to be published in 2013.
Veto will start the new year with a new EP “Point Break”/album “Sinus Point Break” which will be released by the end of this month. Also, they’ll be touring Germany and home country Denmark (find the dates below). Can’t wait to dance!

I feel a bit poorly today, so what else should I listen to but relaxing music? Oliveray is the project of Peter Broderick and Nils Frahm. They are friends. The have made an album called “Wonders” and these are 3 of the 8 tracks. I would go so far and say you can hear the good chemistry going on between these two.
"Harmonics" is a cover song. The original is a song from Efterklang - a band Broderick is touring with. And I have told you about "You don’t love" a couple of month ago, I think. It was answer number 16, I recommended you to listen to. It didn’t lost its magic. It’s also a free download. The whole album is actually simply wonderful. It’s kind of floating. And it sounds so incredible effortless. I love it.
Have a good Sunday,
