The holidays doesn't have to look and sound like an overdosed soda commercial. Instead we think Christmas should remind us of the things that matter, friends, family while also offering us moments of contemplation in those chaotic times. So, yes there are fitting songs to celebrate this mood, kindly provided by Molly Burch, Phoebe Bridgers, Sufjan Stevens, The National, LCD Soundsystem, Shame and more.
Putting on a festival in 2019 comes along with a great deal of responsibilities. Lollapalooza Berlin, which celebrated its fifth edition this year, was back for a second consecutive round of music, art, fun and more at the Olympic Stadium and the Olympic Park and approximately 85,000 visitors each day. Quite a large number of guests that were ready to be entertained in all possible ways.
Although this decade isn't entirely over yet we still like to already take a look back on its musical highlight. And especially the independent music scene seems to fully freed itself from any limitations and boundaries during these ten years, resulting in quite some memorable musical moments we'd like to share with you.
The charming songwriter returns with his sweetly slack new album 'Bottle It In' after last year's collaborative release 'Lotta Sea Lice' with Courtney Barnett. It turns out, he is not so slack after all, having recorded the new songs all across The United States in various sessions. The epic result is sonically charming with a smooth vibe and lo-fi appeal.
Fuzzy guitars, lo-fi charm and beautiful songwriting from old favourites and hidden treasures. These five hours of chilled sunshine sounds wants to be your companion for the next months. Will you make it happen??
It became an ongoing tradition on NBHAP to have all those 'End-Of-The-Year'-lists followed by an outlook of what lies ahead of us. So, buckle up and take a closer look what (hopefully) great albums might happen to us over the course of the next months.
