Henk-Jan’s soundtrack to 10-20 August 2021

Each day I add music to my soundtrack to 2021 Spotify playlist. Here is the second batch for August.

Wednesday 11 August: 10,000 Maniacs – Like the Weather

The weather improved significantly on my second day of hiking in Groningen.

Thursday 12 August: Blank & Jones featuring Boney M. – Summer

It’s #throwbackthursday , Summer like weather in Groningen. Music, maestro!

Friday 13 August: Ede Staal – Mien Grunningerlaand

Local troubadour Ede Staal praises the province of Groningen. Today, I walked on the Ede Staal path and saw a plaquette with these lyrics.

Tuesday 17 August: Mary J. Blige

Last week I also watched the My Life documentary with and reflecting on Mary J. Blige‘s 1994 album.

Wednesday 18 August: Coastal – Days Go By

Although every day has its own challenges, the repetitive nature of working from home since March 2020 also makes it difficult to distinguish between the days. Is it Wednesday again? I took Days Go By from UK-based retrowave band Coastal which is on the brand new Pure Synthpop Vol.2 album.

Thursday 19 August: ASPRA – Velvet

ASPRA is the solo projectof Sophia Sarigiannidou from the Greek synth pop duo Marsheaux. Her debut is a cover of The Big Pink‘s shoegaze masterpiece Velvet (2009). That suits #throwbackthursday

Friday 20 August: Minute Taker, Bright Light – After the Rain

After the rain has gone….there are new showers of rain…and music.
