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.

  • One of the best things: a hike in the forest with this guy… 💚 (I’m always running behind by the way, that’s ‘cause I need to make a picture of every fern & pine tree I see and they tend to show up quite often in forests… #forestproblems) 💁🏻‍♀️🌿💚

  • In this episode of Friday Fun Fern Facts: In the Middle Ages people didn’t understand how a plant could reproduce without flowers. Since ferns don’t grow any, people believed they flowered in secret once a year, on the night before Midsummer Day, and produce invisble seeds. Many tried to capture these invisible seeds – they would grant invisibility, let you see into the future and be forever young. With all that in mind the whole spore-reproduction sounds a bit dull now, right?

  • Is this what I think it is? The first sign of Autumn? In case you’ve missed it: it’s been terribly hot here in the Netherlands, we’re in a second heatwave and the parks in the city look like the desert. The trees are getting rid of all their leaves to save water and energy, and you can find these leaves everywhere - it’s like it October already!

  • House goals! I’m stoked to travel to California later this year and get to witness all kinds of cacti in the wild: they’re such amazing plants!
