    Bastille Tells a Roller Coaster Midnight Story in “Doom Days”

    I have to admit that I got defensive toward Bastille’s new album, Doom Days before I even heard the whole album. I remember telling Elsa that, “I don’t think, Bastille’s new album will charm me this time.” Boy, how judgmental I was back then. Just because I got vigilant over one of the Joy’s lyric, “You’re a sweet relief, you saved me from my brain From my brain, from my brain, from my brain” and couldn’t immediately relate with Those Days MVC, I get snob and hasty declaring my feeling toward unborn a piece of art at that moment.   Alright, brace yourself, this is going to be a rather…

    TBT: Black Coffee from All Saints

    It’s time for Throwback Thursday! Okay, this time I will take you to the early 2000 music which, I think, is one of the best music era where so many great musicians introduced their great music. One of them is my all time favorite girl band from London, UK. Yupp! Our Throwback Thursday for this week is All Saints. I’m so sure you already know about them, right? So many people said All Saints is one of the most successful girl band beside Spice Girls in 90’s and early 2000’s era.

    “Home” by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, an Anthem You Want to Keep Singing

    I should have killing off all of my deadline—writing and editing, books and magazines—now. I only get less than two days to tackle them down. But here I am instead, writing things that I love about this song, Home by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. Well, I guess, sometimes, you need to push yourself to stop, to fight with you own self just to hit the wreckage brake, take a slightly break, so you won’t hit that damn invisible tree, right? Okay, what do I love? Let’s start with the whistling, the melodies, the strumming guitar, the beat of the drum, the trumpet, the harmonica, the way Jade Castrinos and…

    TBT: In Too Deep from Sum 41

    Throwback Thursday is like a vehicle to do time travel to the past for me. Since today is Thursday, kindly allow me to take you back to my junior high school memories with Sum 41. I don’t really recall how I found out about Sum 41. But I remember, I have 4 albums of them–Half Hour of Power, All Killer, No Filler, Does This Look Infected, and Chuck. I picked In Too Deep as my Throw Back Thursday because this is one of their songs that I instantly love it. The song itself was release in September 2001, in the All Killer, No Filler album–which is my favorite album. I still love it till today, still tapping my…

    Most Anticipated Artist: Luwten

    Delicate and fresh are the words that pop in my mind when I first listen to Luwten’s single In Over My Head II. Immediately, I got a feeling I will love her music. So, I dig deeper and prove myself that she’s right. Tessa Douwstra is the woman behind Luwten. Instead of describing Luwten as Douwstra’s stage name, in her official website, she describes Luwten as her creative conduit. Her music’s genre is electronic, but, mind you, she has lots to offers and does fair share of experiments in her debut album, Luwten. There isn’t much personal info about who Douwstra is, except that she is from Amsterdam, Netherland. But,…
