Don’t worry. I probably won’t add these videos of the day every freakin’ day. And if I do, I probably forget about it in a couple of weeks anyway. Right now this feels like a good way to introduce some fine pop bands/artists (and some cool videos) from all over the globe. This time the video of the day takes us to Netherlands. Tim Knol is a young dutch singer-songwriter (born 1989) and his debut album is out on the lovely Excelsior Recordings. When I Am King is a great song and it actually reminds me a bit of the (at least should be) legendary Excelsior band Daryll-Ann. I need to check out more of his songs. Meanwhile I can watch this wonderful video ten times in a row.
Australian singer-songwriter Darren Hanlon has a new album entitled I Will Love You At All. I think it’s already out in Australia and in september Yep Roc will release it in the states. Darren Hanlon is a fantastic songwriter and I can fully recommend his whole back catalogue as well. This is a guy who can write a moving pop song about a kickstand or make squash sound like the most beautiful game ever. The first single of the album is All These Things. The song is wonderful and this music video is so adorable and beautiful. The best music video I’ve seen all year.
A whole lot of pop fun for a change. Thankfully I’m not totally lost in the country zone and pop music can still make me excited. First I “only” liked this, but after a couple of listenings I’m already loving it. It’s The Sugar Stems from Milwaukee and their debut album has just been released. I think I need to buy it..
