Top 5 songs of last week

A new week starts with the top 5 of the last week. Here it is.

 

1. Tribute – Tenacious D

 

Got my ticket for their show next month. Great song and an awesome video featuring Dave Grohl.

 

 

2. Forever – Haim

 

I saw them last week at the Rock Werchter and they were one of the biggest (positve) surprises.

 

 

3. WOR – Django Django

 

The second big surprise. Their set was just amazing.

 

 

4. Second Bite Of The Apple – Beady Eye

 

I listened to this one a lot last week. It is just a tune you have to like. Here’s a nice accoustic version.

 

 

5. Are You Ready – RPA and The United Nations Of Sound

 

I think I don’t have to say much about Richard Ashcroft. Hail to the king!

With the Rock Werchter Festival just four days away, here are my top 5 songs of last week. I am on my vacation until next monday, so enjoy your week everybody.

 

1. Honesty – Editors

 

The closer of their set. What a great song. I saw it live last monday and can’t wait for the performance on sunday.

 

 

2. Take Aim – Kasabian

 

No Werchter act here, but one of my favourite Kasabian songs. Sergio at his best.

Rock Werchter Festival 2013, 6 Days to go

Given that the Glastonbury Festival started two days ago, I’m even more excited for my vacation to come up. After a few days relaxing in Den Haag, I’ll go to the Rock Werchter Festival for the second consecutive year. The lineup is awesome. Here are the acts I’m going to see on thursday:

 

Palma Violets – They will open the second stage called the barn. I already saw them in Oxford this year. The perfect start of a big festival.

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club – One of my favourite bands of all time. One of my highlights this year. I saw them on their tour in London and Berlin,…great!

Vampire Weekend – A great band. Perfect for a festival. I saw them two years ago at the Hurricane Festival. With their new album they added some nice songs to their setlist.

Biffy Clyro – It will be the first time I see them. The new album is great, I’m really looking foward to it.

Bloc Party – Also the first time for me. This will be the perfect closer for the first day. “Banquet”, “Helicopter”, “Flux”,…wow!

 

Some music to get in the right mood
