10 Songs I can’t live without – Coachella Edition

Coachella is just around the corner. I, myself, don’t really care about it and it’s not really on my bucket list of MUST DO things on this planet, but I know it is for many of you. And I also think that the acts performing at it are definitely some very talented people that I love listening to. That is why I decided to make a new 10 songs I can’t live without Special Edition: The Coachella Edition.

#1 SZA – The Weekend

I already introduced you to one of her songs (Love Galore with Travis Scott) on my last 10 songs post and since I didn’t want to repeat myself, here’s another one of her songs. She’s definitely one of the best new R&B artists out there!

#2 Léon – Tired of Talking

This is actually the third time that you can find Léon on my blog. But she is just too amazing and talented. Can’t wait to see her live at one point!

#3 Alt-J – Taro

Choosing one of there songs was probably one of the hardest things. I am just in love with their music. It’s so soothing and energetic at the same time. I can’t explain it but it instantly makes me melancholic and happy at once.

#4 Tash Sultana – Notion

Another talented young woman that you might have seen on my blog today. Whenever I listen to her songs or watch her perform, I’m always in complete awe. How can someone be so freaking talented?

#5 First Aid Kit – My Silver Lining

I’ve seen the two sisters of First Aid Kit at Southside Festival before and they are just wonderful. They reminded me of Julia Stone on stage, so graceful and hippie-esque, floating around as if it was not hard or stressful at all.

#6 HAIM – We want you back

I have a very mixed taste in music. This is a good example of that. But I’m proud of it.

#7 Vance Joy – Call if you need me

I just saw Vance Joy live in Munich 2 weeks ago and whenever I listen to his music, I am transported back to the most amazing time I got to spend in Australia. So it’s a little bitter sweet, but it doesn’t make his music any less great!

#8 Ibeyi – River

Oh Ibeyi ❤

#9 Jacob Banks  – Chainsmoking

I shared his music in my last post as well, but that doesn’t stop me to do it again. Because, I mean, that voice!

#10 Beyonce – Hold up

Okay, Queen B has to be on this list. And I could post her whole Lemonade video here, but I’ll just leave you with one of the amazing songs on that album.

P.S.: Well, this was harder than I though. There are still so many amazing artists missing! But I guess 10 it is for now.

10 Songs I can’t live without: Part V

It’s time again – my February (or all time) favourites are here! Happy listening.

#1 Nick Mulvey – Unconditional

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I always think about summer and the beach when I listen to Nick Mulvey. And about that incredible, intimate concert of his in Hamburg a couple of years ago. If you ever have the chance to go see him – do it!


#2 Mighty Oaks – All I need

 

 

 

 

 

 


#3 Angus and Julia Stone – For you

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When I listen to that song I can’t really decide if I am deeply happy because of how beautiful Angus&Julia Stone’s music is or if I just want to crawl into my bed and cry all day. So many emotions.


#4 Kings of Convenience – Misread

 

 

 

 

 

Hey, Kings of Convenience, a new album would be nice!


#5 Vance Joy – Like Gold

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A little tip: Vance Joy is on tour soon, so go check him out live! That reminds me.. I need to get the tickets as well.


#6 Jacob Banks – Unknown

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another artist I’ve been introduced to by a friend. And I’ll be forever grateful for that.


#7 SZA, Travis Scott – Love Galore

 

 

 

 

This is to congratulate you to the baby, Travis Scott. And to bring a bit of HipHop into that list.


#8 Miguel – Skywalker

 

Just when I googled this it’s another Travis Scott influenced song. Not intentionally, but okay. I just love this song.


#9 Wombats – Turn

 

 

 

A NEW WOMBATS ALBUM and life is complete. I literally feel like a teenager again when I listen to their songs. Is that only me?


#10 Matt Corby – Brother

 

 

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen this song in my Story already. It’s just on of my all time favourites and I listen to it way too rarely, which is due to the fact that it’s not on Spotify. Get it on there please?

10 Songs I can’t live without: Part III

I was told that a lot of people really enjoy these posts so I decided to make another one. I hope I can do them once a month but at least once every two months, I promise!
Enjoy x

#1 Portugal. The Man. – Feel It Still

This is definitely my instant happy song at the moment. Just click play and you’ll see why.


#2 Angus and Julia Stone – Chateau

The voices of these siblings bring back memories from times spent in Australia back in the days. They fially brought out a new album (and go on tour yay!) and even though the whole album is brilliant, this one’s by far my favourite song.


#3 Dennis Lloyd – Nevermind (Alright)

Thanks to the fact that I have friends working in the music business, I get all these great tips if musicians to check ou. This is one of them!


#4 LÉON – Surround me

You might know LÉON already from one of my other 10 songs-posts but since all her songs are pure magic (I mean, that voice!) here’s another one of her.


#5 Sundara Karma – Happy Family

When listening to this song I suddenly feel like I was driving down one of these streets in California or Nevada or somewhere in the middle of nowhere. And since my Fernweh is killing me now, it’s the perfect song.


#6 French Monatana – Unforgettable

Old(er) but still gold. I started going to the Gym before work because I wouldn’t be able to fit it into my life and this is a song that always gets me going on the treadmill at 6am.


#7 Mumford & Sons – Friend of the Devil

FINALLY A NEW MUMFORD AND SONS SONG. That’s all. It’s a cover and so far there’s no Youtube Video of it, but check it on Spotify if you have an account there, it’s very very good.


#8 RY X – Howling

I really thought this song was in one of my lists already because I can’t stop listening to it. But it wasn’t. So it is now.


#9 Sohn – Conrad

I can’t really explain my feelings when I listen to music. It’s just this instant happiness. Just like it is with this song. So many emotions.


#10 Pam Pam Ida – Schultertanz

This one’s very random for all of you non-germans (or probably even most of you Germans out there) since it’s a Bavarian song. My friend kept playing it over and over one night when we were supposed to go to Oktoberfest but ended up just staying in and it captured the mood perfectly. Maybe you enjoy it without even understanding a word – give it a try! 🙂
