When I started this blog, I was kind of bored. I had no idea what it's going to be like. Now as it seems to me this blog with a rather strange name ('goedeavonds' means 'good evenings' in Dutch and I'm not even sure if it is right)became a musical equivalent of my other blog with a rather strange name as well (again, 'goedemorgens' means 'good mornings' in Dutch and again I'm not sure if it is right).
I'm just sharing some music I like, making playlists and posting videos. If there is a download link - let there be a download link. If a band has got news, let there be these news.
Let it be so, I guess no one doesn't mind.

sometimes strange activities like watching 'never mind the buzzcocks' at 6 a.m. with a pale trace of yesterday hungover may suprise you with a nice piece of music

Unfortunately missed on SKIF.

Jahcoozi is a multi-national Berlin phenomenon, mixing bass electronic beats with ragga, dancehall and hip-hop.

I don't like 8bit music at all. The only exception is finnish 8bit dance nonsense - Desert Planet. They come from Lapland that lies within the Arctic Circle and running through the northern forests still they are very good at shooting videos based on old videogames.

Constant attributes are bright green helmets and a quote "Yes, maybe we need a female singer. French one. Even two. And let it be twins"

I won't tell anything about Swans. I've seen them live a week ago, no need to tell how it was or what did they sing, you just need to feel it once

Monday, May 23, 2011


Piss Ennui is Anton from UltraNoir and Janne from Heroin and Your Veins, based in Finland. Night music, basses, darkness, amazing.

Talking about SKIF festival (SKIF is a music festival in St Petersburg that I visit every year)and bands that have played there.
Here we are - Zu, Italian pride. I've seen them twice, this is one of the best live bands for sure. Sad news though - the drummer has left.


They were that very band we all needed on the second day of SKIF festival at 5 a.m. Thank you, Poland! Again.

Thursday, May 19, 2011


I heard them live on SKIF, but there's no video from that gig on youtube so I'm posting this one also with the new vocalist, Arnold, who also sings in ZEA.
I don't have much to say about them, they are simply EXcellent! And if you ever have a chance to see them live - just go, no reason is strong enough to miss their show. Best Punks.

Referring to the previous post about Benediktsson.

He and Damon Albarn scored '101 Reykjavík' movie.


Iceland is famous for its music, but then still mostly for post-rock and folktronica, which I don't really like. What I love about icelandic music is punk of 80s.
(Thanks to Friðrik Þór Friðriksson and his film 'Rokk í Reykjavík')
One of those punks was Einar Örn Benediktsson and his best band ever lived Purrkur Pillnikk.

sound of this morning, sound of summer
the only one band from the kind, that I listen to

one shouldn't listen too much to them though, they'll loose their magic in this case then

Monday, March 21, 2011


Reggae music exists in the northern land of Iceland. Maybe it is not as sunny as Jamaican, but truly emotional and beautiful. And songs are in Icelandic.

"Ég vil fá mér kærustu" er fallegasta lagið, held ég.

This is my favourite song. Deeply connected with memories, that's why.

this track proves that the song is just great, 'cause even in backwords it sounds amazing

Buck 65 is Tom Waits of hip-hop.
When I listen to him I imagine myself in a road restaurant in some forgotten place, with an evening beer.
Deep, emotional and wise.

I'm not fond of reading poetry, but I do like to listen to it.

One of new guys. He plays some kind of melancholic hip-hop.

Gil Scott-Heron.

Roger Robinson.
Poet from Trinidad, who lives in London. He is in the Bug's project 'King Midas Sound' with Kiki Hitomi from Dokkebi Q. I think he's my favourite. I like his voice and how he perfomes his poetry. And i really want to read his last book.


Polish nu-jazz artist from Katowice with two amazing albums. String quartet, flutes, scratches, trumpets, basses, drums, guitar, piano and electronics biult this exceptional sound production.
This is that kind of polish jazz music, that I like most of all. Thank you, Poland!

Experimental jazz band from Australia with electronica elements and influences from the textures of musique concrete, with their use of loops of hisses and crackles, that unfortunately disbanded in 2007.

Утро (rus. 'morning') is a project of russian post-punk band Motorama. Way better than Motorama itself. Dark, grim and brutal. Very good.

Mad Japanese dubstep. The girl singer, Kiki Hitomi, is also the member of King Midas Sound. I wish she sang in Japanese.

I should probably mention this soundtrack for 'Monsters' film, scored by Jon Hopkins.
I don't like such kind of films and I'm not into soundtracks that much.
But this is an exception.

I have listened to the soundtrack for like one hundred times, but haven't watch the film until now. I downloaded it to watch later and pressed play just to check the quality, but I couldn't turn it off. There is this tension between despair and hope. And it is filmed in a very beautiful and exiting manner.

Jon Hopkins says, that his favourite scene in the movie is where the girl wakes up by the water just after the first encounter. "It has the most beautiful dawn and she stands up and looks at the sky. For me that was such an amazing moment to score. I put my favorite piece of music into that point of the film."

I like music, which is tagged with the nationality adjective, just because it's hard to believe such style exists in such land. For example, Japanese dubstep or Vietnamese disco. I've just found Icelandic rap band, that went far beyond the borders of the style. It's called Quarashi and it is rather popular.

Unfortunately to me, they sing mostly in English. But I've found one song in the Icelandic language which sounds very interesting and special in rap songs.

What I absolutely didn't expect to listen to from them is this song, from a great album "Kristnihald Undir Jökli". Well, actually, it's not a song. It's a stunning piece of experimental sound art

Apparently, Icelanders are not going to stop surprising me.

Totally different from the original 'Vessel' but therefore is worth to watch and listen. And the dance, dance, especially at the end. Incrementally!

Halls is the solo project of south London-based musician Samuel Howard. Started in early 2010, Halls combines looped electronic samples with sparse vocals, each song deeply submerged in dense reverb.

As you maybe know, David Lynch has recently released an EP "Good Day Today". The music is the best music for David Lynch's films, I'd say.

Taken from David Lynch's 'Good Day Today / I Know Remixes' EP and remixed by Jon Hopkins.

There was a video competition for this song, as I know. This one directed by Tamar Drachli was chosen by David Lynch as the winner for 'I Know' from a shortlist of 10 finalists.


Finland is a beautiful northern land with great reggae music. Raappana (Janne Pöyhönen) from Lahti is one of the best known Finnish reggae artists. Just imagine, Finnish reggae, amazing, isn't it?

The greatest thing about him is that the songs are in Finnish. Reggae-suitable language by the way, as it turned out!


'- we may expect quite a lot of noise
- probably, they were going to play some polish records
- that shouldn't be too bad'
('Not too bad' song)

"For the last two years they've been digging in the crates, trying to build the most exciting collection of samples from Polish Jazz records. Now they are slowly unleashing the music created from these sounds. They ressurected dusty&smokey spirit of polish jazz of 60s and 70s, and reimagined it for 21st century audiophiles." (from Ninja Tune site)

Polish jazz has always been excellent and special. And these guys are really talented, with sense of humor. They went much father in blending the styles, so the music is vary. I do like some phrases they mix, too. I guess, I even have my favorite qoutes.

'Very pleasant. I'm enjoying myself'
('Newly arrived from Poland' song)

Beautiful videos as well

A true Krautrock classic from the archives. In 1976 Brian Eno visited Harmonia's studio in the Weserbergland region of northern Germany to create what would become one of the most cherished artifacts of the genre on 'Tracks and Traces'.Well, I guess, there is no need to explain who is Brian Eno and who are Harmonia. This is the collaboration of the Greatests.

Rangers is Joe Knight from Dallas, Texas. He makes cosmic tape collages that are heavily rhythmic and psychedelic. He mixes bits and pieces of heavily processed and treated live recordings of guitar, keyboards, bass and percussion with samples of a wide variety of media (commercials, movie samples, jingles, etc.) and found sounds, culminating in long continuous pieces that are truly unique and captivating, but never boringly academic or overly abstract.

You can download his music for free via his myspace.


Jon Hopkins: "I made a collaborative album with King Creosote. It's called DIAMOND MINE, and it's out on Domino Records on March the 28th. It took us about 4 months to make, but this was spread out over the last 6 years, whenever we had time.
I made a short teaser for it, listen and download"

can't wait


"Evenings’ sleepy electronic instrumentals float out of your speakers."
The group has only released one EP which is worth to listen.

You can download the music from the site

P.S. Thanks to JH for the link


The Jolly Boys are old men from Port Antonio, Jamaica, playing modern mento music, one of Jamaica's original musics. They made some awesome covers of international hits, like 'Rehab' or 'Riders on the storm'.

"The well-seasoned and ever energetic Jolly Boys thrash out this new mento sound with as much heart and flex as any contemporary performer. Lead singer Albert Minott’s saturated vocals, natural retro chic stylings and limitless charisma convey an uncommon originality and musical creativity that is entirely his own." (from the official website)

I think the way they perform these songs is much better, than any other.
