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.
How to party after a year like this? Especially when you are not really allowed to do it in a collective way? Well, maybe now letting off some steam is more important than ever. Just in time for socially distanced New Year's Eve parties all around the world we updated our beloved and diverse party playlist as a mood-lifter for the difficult times we live in. So, move your furnitures aside and give this one a spin.
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.
How do you keep an overview about the countless new releases in the world of music? Well, easier said than done but thank god the staff of NBHAP keeps an overview. In this column one from the team personnally reflects on the past four weeks and the music that matters during this time. This time it's the turn of longtime NBHAP editor Miriam Wallbaum to ramble about our favourite passion in the world.
Ten years of music, ten personal stories. The writers of NBHAP are given the opportunity to reminisce about the records that excited them the most during the past decade. This is a subjective reflection rather than an ultimate conclusion. Austin Maloney takes up the reigns.
As this decade is approaching its end it is time for a little reflection on all the great music we experienced over the course of it. Of course, this is NOT an ultimate and universal Top 100 list. It simply can't be but these are the songs you should definitely give a spin before the decade is over. The first 25 tracks include Frank Ocean, Flying Lotus, David Bowie, Vampire Weekend, Lorde, The Weeknd, FKA Twigs and more.
