We got a lovely e-mail today from a band called Nora and One Left. Next to music, they are in love with all things cycle chic. Which is pretty perfect, cause next to cycle chic, we are in love with all things music.
And though their music is the best possible soundtrack for a bicycle ride in any given season of the year, their christmas tune put a big smile on our face. Listen to it – over and over again – here:
Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year to all of you!
Reading our previous post about women riding free and careless, we started wondering: ‘Let your hair down’, where did we here that line before? It’s from a song about a careless summer, right? And then we remembered: it’s Put Your Records On by Corinne Bailey Rae!
Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.
And then we looked up the video on youtube. And guess what…
Ja-ha hoor, het is diezelfde groovende gast van ‘Ik neem je mee’. Gers Pardoel!
We got a message from W-Evilghem Fixed about this music video from Janne Vanneste, a Belgian singer-songwriter.
Janne grew up in a musical family. She is the younger sister of Brent Vanneste, who is member of the band Steak Number Eight. Six years ago Janne taught herself to play the piano. Now the instrument has become an extension of her. It helps her to express her feelings as she sings. The video of her song “This is how we live” is simply beautiful as we see Janne, riding along a river (the Lys?) on her bicycle. Sit back, listen and enjoy.
Het Antwerpse hiphopcollectief Halve Neuro & de Zollogie brengt met hun nieuwe nummer ‘Pakt de velo’ hulde aan de fiets. De beelden werden gemaakt aan het Zuid in Antwerpen en op de Blauwvelokeskoers begin juni. Er komen een paar coole fixies in beeld.
Yes, I know, it’s only at the very start of this precious little video that you see a bicycle, but the simple melody of this song by the wonderful Amatorski is just too beautiful not to share.
(And since this is my 300th post on this blog, I can do whatever I want to celebrate, anyway. Cheers.)
Do check these guys out, and get their EP. Pure craftsmanship and sweet beauty.
I am really, really glad that I can introduce you all to Eleni Mandell on this blog. Being a fan of hers for a long while now, I urge you to go on a discovery of her beautiful, sweet and playful music.
Antwerps very own driven piano is played by Paul. He’s one of the more known street artist in Antwerp, and he performs mostly on the crowded Meir. A joy to watch him do his thing.
I recently became a huge fan of “Flight of the Conchords”, a Grammy award winning duo from New Zealand starring Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement. In 2007 they started their own American television series where they play themselves trying to achieve succes in New York. Every show they perform different songs about life and ordinary events.
In this episode they declare their love to the coffeeshopgirls in French and take them through town by bike.
