The new Lykke Li video is just awesome. You have to watch it! And if you like the song, maybe you’d want to listen to the whole album at SoundCloud. I love her it.

Artwork: Strobotone – Flashback Forward

Today I found this new great netlabel release. “Strobotone” is a Berlin based musician who “combines futuristic electronic dance-sound with a truckload of references from 35 years of musical history”. His debut album “Flashback Forward” was published on iD.EOLOGY about a week ago.

These are my favorite tracks of the album: “Ultimate” and “Kites”

It’s finally done. After almost two years I’ve got a new release for you. It’s a piano peace, which will be part of the forthcoming Lorino album I’m currently working on.

As the title might suggest it’s a slow piece. I wrote it when I was in a melancholic mood, remembering people who I spent plenty of happy time with but for one reason or another don’t anymore. You’ll probably like it most when you’re in a similar mood, lost in thought, remembering old times and old friends.

Cover: Lorino – Melancholy

For the last few months I’ve been heavily working on my project Lorino. I’m planing to release a CC licensed album with about twelve piano pieces on it. The composition is almost done and I’m going to focus on the post production during the next weeks. But don’t expect it to be finished before August. I’ve got lots of other stuff to do at the moment and can’t focus on music as much as I would like to.

At least on song will be released in advance of the album. It is called “Melancholy” and the music notation is already done. This weekend I was looking for a picture which I could use as a cover. I’ve been using CC licensed images as a basis for the covers for some time and I think it’s better to reuse great material of someone else than to try to make something more or less acceptable out of my own pictures.

The picture you can see above and which I’m going to use as a cover for “Melancholy” is “It’s Christmas! No, it’s a stoplight! No, it’s rain!” by Jack Mayer and is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike License.
