The second bath of additions to Henk-Jan’s soundtrack to 2017 in Spotify. New releases and special songs.

Wednesday, 11 January: Army of Bones – Don’t Be Long

Interesting wave rock by Army of Bones. Their single (released on 7 January) is called Don’t Be Long. On 3 March their debut album will come out.

Thursday, 12 January: You Me At Six – Take on the World

We face the world. What are you bringing in? At least this song by the British band You Me at Six is a nice one. The band’s out on a European Tour.

Friday, 13 January: Phantogram – Parallel Lines – Doobious remix

I was triggered by the Amsterdam pop venue Melkweg that announced a concert by the synthpop duo Phantogram in April. I discovered the brand new remixes EP of Parallel Lines. I took the Doobious remix, the least trippy one 😉

Saturday, 14 January: The xx – Say Something Loving

Love is the difference we can make. From the upcoming album I See You by The xx this is Say Something Loving.

Sunday, 15 January: London Grammar – Rooting for You

Searching for the truth in a spheric song. London Grammar does it for you in their new single Rooting for You.

Monday, 16 January: Armin van Buuren feat. Olaf Blackwood – I Need You

A mellow mid-tempo track from Armin van Buuren featuring Olaf Blackwood.

Tuesday, 17 January: Eric Matthews – Space Oddity

As we all know David Bowie passed away last year. Back in 2016, I couldn’t find the original Space Oddity to include in the Spotify 366 2016 Challenge playlist. One year later Lo-Fidelity Records issued a cover by Eric Matthews.

If you like the Americana sound of Starflyer 59, or the alternative rock that 77’s, Daniel Amos or Terry Scott Taylor used to make in the earlier days of what now is Lo-Fidelity, check out this track.

Wednesday, 18 January: Flor – Hold On

Midweek crisis? Hold On by Flor‘s yours today.

Thursday, 19 January: Rach̬l Louise РFar Away (Rui remix)

The Dutch singer-songwriter Rachèl Louise presents a fresh remix of her Far Away song.

Friday, 20 January: San Fermin – Bride

Friday’s a great day to get married.
