From longtime favourites like Radiohead, Jon Hopkins, Damien Jurado, Marissa Nadler and London Grammar to beloved newcomers like Chloe Foy, Maja Lena, Anna Leone and Skullcrusher - we got almost seven hours of moody tracks lined up for you to provide an emotional soundtrack for the upcoming dark winter months.
Every Friday music fans are faced with the same burning question: What to listen to from the sheer endless sea of new albums, EPs and other releases? Don't worry, the people of NBHAP are here to help you with that. Our very own release roundup gives you a quick overview on the music that matters the most this week.
What a freakin' year this has been! This sentence might be more true than at any moment in the past years. The Corona pandemic had a massive impact on pretty much all of our lives, the music industry and quite possibly also the rest of society. In the absence of live music events the songs and records that were released remained an anchor and provided much needed comfort in a difficult time. These are our fifty favourite tracks from this rollercoaster ride called 2020.
The middle of the night is a mystical time. It is somehow not really yesterday, not today anymore, and not tomorrow yet. In this vacuum, the way we view the world often changes to a more somber philosophical look on things. In this fourth edition of Late Night Talks, the Berlin-based singer and songwriter Novaa met up with Editor Liv Toerkell on a late summer evening.
Isolation is something we often seek to express ourselves creatively. But what happens to the creative mind when it is forced upon us? Beloved songwriter and producer Novaa shares her experience with having to face the blank page - musically and personally - in these uncertain times. After her acclaimed self-titled debut she now opens up about the struggles all of us are confronted with today and shares her advice on making the first brush stroke on the intimidating bare canvas.
One of our favourite new bands is finally announcing their debut album along with a gritty new single. Stream the sinister "A.A.A.A." now in our newcomer playlist along with tracks by Junk Drawer, RIIVA, Drew Makes Noise, Westerman and more.
Start your year with a pastoral queer pop ode to introversion that is leading our beloved newcomer playlist, furthermore including new songs from Novaa, MIKEY, Luna Rosa, Sam Florian, Draag and other talents that deserve your love and attention.
Ain't it wonderful to start your day with a fresh piece of music? A song you can experience for the very first time, free from any expectations. Every day the writers of NBHAP pick a new one for you, present them on our page and add the to our paylist. These have been our highlights from the past weeks.
