Today’s New Years Song offering, The New Year, comes from Death Cab for Cutie. I really like this song and hope you enjoy it as well.
Our 2012 end of the year music review continues with an award called, The Best New Music That I Had Never Heard. My music friend Gerard from the Netherlands was nice enough to turn me on to some music from his country. I can honestly say that I am really enjoying all of the music but my favorite so far is a song called Liefdesliedjes by a group called De Jazzpolitie (from what Gerard has told me, the song title translates into Songs of Love). Let’s listen….
As I have mentioned to Gerard, the song reminds me a little of Mark Knopfler but at the same time it is unique. The instrumentation is amazing with all kind of interesting things going on in the background. You really need to listen to the song on headphones to truly appreciate it. As an example, there is a little bass run around 2:08 that just knocks my socks off. I promise to share more of the music from Gerard during the coming year.
Much thanks to Gerard for his friendship and for sharing his music!
While listening to your Liefdesliedjes I was asking myself if you had some interesting reactions on this “take” ??
We had a beautiful Christmas (in Holland that are two days) with my family. They stayed with us from Christmas eve till today and I just waved them goodbye. The weather was rather soft (about 10 degrees Celsius) and pitifull there was no snow, so no white Christmas for us.
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas too with your father back at home again and I assume you have your winterholiday now?
In the Netherlands many people now do enjoy their winterholiday while skiing in Austria, Switzerland, Germany or France. In Holland we only have the “Dutch Mountains” (about 500 meters high 🙂 ) so there is no opportunity to ski.
