4 thoughts on “My mmxvii in review: Music Part I”

  1. Oh this post is lovely! I’m always eager to discover bands and music, and as I expected since I’ve followed you for a while, we share a lot of common musical interests.

    I saw Árstíðir, Myrkur and Sólstafir in concert, too, when they came to Rennes, in France (where I currently live). I couldn’t believe such awesome bands came to town! Just like you, I would have skipped the show if Myrkur wasn’t part of it. I’ve become a huge Myrkur fan since last year: I didn’t quite grasp her black metal albums, until “Mausoleum”, the acoustic one, really helped me to familiarize myself with her melodies. Since then, I listen to all her albums a lot (and I really like the latest one, “Mareridt”).

    The only other show I went to was Tori Amos at Le Grand Rex, in Paris. I’ve been listening to Tori’s music for ages, and I have already seen her on stage a lot, but this show completely blew up my mind. It is such inspiring and empowering to see a 54-year-old singer-songwriter woman still on stage, and still rocking it.

    I would love to see Emma Ruth Rundle, Chelsea Wolfe, :Of The Wand And The Moon: as well as Trve Widow on stage as well, because I love their music. I will definitely listen to more King Dude and Wardruna music in 2018.

    Thank you again so much for sharing! Can’t wait to read your next posts 🙂

    1. Ah, thanks for your kind reply Kreestal!

      ‘Mausoleum’ is indeed wonderful! Next month Myrkur is playing a folk-only gig here in the Netherlands, I hope to make it there. I love all the instruments she uses, so fascinating. And Tori Amos, wow! It must be amazing to see her love on stage, she has such a fantastic voice. I haven’t listened to Tori’s latest album yet, I’ll add it to the list of music I still have to check out.

  2. Wat luisteren we naar ontzettend veel dezelfde artiesten! ♥ Ik was dit jaar, na een pauze van een paar jaartjes, ook terug op Roadburn. Volgend jaar weer, misschien zie ik je daar? Mijn Lana-tickets zijn ook in the pocket, hehe.

  • When I synced the photos from yesterday afternoon’s walk from my camera to my computer I noticed something quite embarrassing: the last time I took my camera somewhere was... America last October. Ouch! 🙈

I’m not sure if it’s still the America-blues (try finding something nice to photograph in the Netherlands when you’ve been to New York City, Bryce Canyon and Yosemite!), the boring weather or even just my everyday-being-busy; it’s been too long! Yesterday was lovely and I really enjoyed taking my camera out, so finger’s crossed it won’t be another four months.

  • Besides the red rock and insanely cute squirrels (they’re everywhere!) what impressed me most about Zion were the plants. Due to its location at the junction of the Colorado Plateau, Great Basin and Mojave Desert the park has a unique variety of plants and animals. Next to a massive amount of ferns (don’t worry, I photographed them all) there are all sorts of plants, mosses and flowers growing on the warm brown/red rock. Happy Saturday!

  • Moving on from Bryce: Hello Zion! The red rock in Zion National Park is stunning, especially with all the green. Even the roads had this red-ish tone, isn’t that aesthetically pleasing? 😍

  • Ok, one more and I promise I’ll move on from Bryce Canyon National Park! 😅 After Valencia this was the second time I took my Lomography Instant camera with me om vacation and I had so much fun with it! 🖤 Got a pile of Instax pictures lying on my desk now, maybe I should buy a big frame and make a collage of my favorites. This gloomy one will definitely be in it! 😍
