On Repeat Today: The Ocean, Clinton Shorter

I’m a fan of The Expanse, and today I’m listening to the soundtrack on a loop. :) Just like the show, the soundtrack really grew on me over time. This track in particular was really nice:

On Repeat Today: Breathe, Télépopmusik

It’s been a while since I posted. :) Here is what I’m listening to today, a bit of nostalgia:

Just breathe! :)

On Repeat Today: Dissolved Girl, Massive Attack

I really enjoyed the first two seasons of Westworld. There was so much in there that I liked: the actors, the world building, the soundtrack, … I was super pumped to start watching season 3. I’ve enjoyed the first two episodes so far (although that second episode felt a bit too rushed in my opinion). I think both Aaron Paul and Vincent Cassel will be great additions to the cast, and the soundtrack is still great :)

On Repeat Today: Game of Thrones

If you have followed this blog for a while, it won’t come as a surprise that I’m a big fan of Ramin Djawadi and his work. Prison Break, Westworld, Iron Man, Game of Thrones, and many others. If you’ve watched TV series or movies in the past 10 years, you must have heard some of his work.

Today I’ve put together a playlist of some of my favorite tracks across all 8 seasons of Game of Thrones. You can listen to it right here on this blog, but if you use Google Play Music, you can also check the playlist I created here.

On Repeat Today: Billy Ze Kick

This is a blast from the past. It came up in a conversation this weekend. I had to listen to them again today! :)

I discovered Billy Ze Kick as a kid, they were a small band but had catchy tunes that I quickly memorized. I don’t think I really caught up on what the lyrics were really about until much later.

The song below, Mangez moi, was their biggest hit and talks about a small group of friends going on a hike in the rain to find magic mushrooms.

It’s been 26 years, but it’s still as catchy as ever and I still remember the lyrics. Enjoy!

On Repeat Today: NERO, BBC Essential Mix

BBC’s Essential mixes never fail to deliver. Today, I’m listening to NERO. The whole mix is worth listening, but I think my favorite track is their remix of Radiohead’s Everything in its right place. Enjoy!

Here is the full mix as well!

On Repeat Today: The Keeper, Bonobo

I’ve been listening to Bonobo’s whole work for the past few days. It’s hard to pick a favorite but here you go :)

On Repeat Today: Misty Mountains, The Hobbit Soundtrack

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is probably my favourite movie of the trilogy. The trilogy itself pales in comparison to The Lord Of The Rings, but the first movie of the Hobbit trilogy had the right tone, and was centered on what made The Hobbit book so good: it was Bilbo’s adventure and was focussed on Bilbo and his companions, the dwarves.

On Repeat Today: Fools, The Dodos

After watching Danny MacAskill’s Cascadia video once again, I ended up playing this song on repeat today. Enjoy!

On Repeat Today: Anyone Who Knows What Love Is — Irma Thomas

As I am catching up with Black Mirror (we are still in the middle of Season 4), I have to share this song from the episode we watched yesterday. It was a good callback to one of the first episodes, Fifteen Million Merits. Enjoy!
