Just a review: Strand – Country that you came from

Thanks to internet and music streaming services we have an easy access to an endless source of music. As a teen I had to go to the recordshops. Spin all the new releases and spend my money on the best tracks. Kept searching. Always hungry for more good music. The yearly ‘Top100 Allertijden’ provided someContinue reading “Just a review: Strand – Country that you came from”

Just a review: Treason of the Monarchy

As you might understand we receive new music in our direct mail in twitter on a regular basis. The first listen is always short. A short impression of what kind of music it is. Yes, in 30 seconds I can pick a track that I like. But of course, sometimes I need to listen moreContinue reading “Just a review: Treason of the Monarchy”

Just a review: Pepe and the Bandits – Never gonna let you go

When we first started the CoolTop20 in may 2020 the artists didn’t pay any attention. Our first followers where youngsters from Russia looking for ‘new music’. Pepe was one of the first to send his music for a review. His track “Corona” featured on our very first release of the CoolTop20. And even though itContinue reading “Just a review: Pepe and the Bandits – Never gonna let you go”

Just a review: Rainbow Road – Dan Kye

It seems a long time ago. Before we discovered the wonderful world of Indie music, I used to listen a lot to artists like @TomMisch and @jordanrakei. I believe I found them through suggested videos on YouTube and because of some cooperations with others artists I followed. Anyway. Last week a friend send me aContinue reading “Just a review: Rainbow Road – Dan Kye”

Just a review: Bourbon Blues Ensemble – Body Soul & Blues

Yes it’s new. Yes it’s refreshing! The Bourbon Blues Ensemble from Mexico produce some neo-Blues. Let’s start with their logo. The Big Yellow BSB with the shadow of their dancing superhero in front of it. The name ‘Bourbon Blues Ensemble’ might sound like a boring old fellow bluesband (at least that was my association), butContinue reading “Just a review: Bourbon Blues Ensemble – Body Soul & Blues”

Just a review: Daniel Charles Cook – Lonely Boy

You’ll all know the name of Daniel Charles Cook as he is probably the most active twitter artist out in twitterspace. Every day he will share his most beloved playlists, artists accounts and music. He deserves some love in return. Folk. That’s the genrebox we put his track in. “Lonely Boy” immediately reminds me ofContinue reading “Just a review: Daniel Charles Cook – Lonely Boy”

Just a review : Black Painted Beastie Bell

Imagine yourself on a weekend trip in Berlin. You’ve had a nice meal and have some energy left for a musical treatment. The small entrance of the Urban Spree promises cheap beer and live rock music. Sounds like a plan. The smell gives you an idea what genre will be played. Downstairs it’s steaming hot.Continue reading “Just a review : Black Painted Beastie Bell”
