Things I Like Things I Love

My girlfriend is a true shopaholic. Shopping releases a neurotransmitter in her brain, which i call ‘dopamine with a dress’. If you have a passion for fashion, you are always looking for that special shop. My girlfriend found that special shop, just around the corner from where we live. ‘Things i like things i love’ is that place where her dopamine is having a party.

Walking in, fashion meets beauty and beauty meets the eye. Stylish and vintage are the words i would choose to discribe how the place looks like. Best of all, it doesn’t give you that forced retail-feeling like you get in many other shops. And items are never overpriced!

'Things i like things i love' offers you special handpicked items, chosen with love and care. They say they get inspired by what their customers from Amsterdam wear. You will find a mix of vintage, second-hand and new items inside of their store. But it's not only about clothes, interior and photography are two other important concepts.

I don’t mind joining my girlfriend, i always find myself on one of their lovely sofa’s, enjoying the music and drinks. Everything just makes you feel home.

If you live in Amsterdam or if you are here as a traveler, don’t miss out on this shop!

Now the time has come to share some tender guitar sounds. Singer-songwriter Dustin Tebbutt relocated from Australia to Sweden to dedicate his time and talent to produce an album. The result is magnificant, it’s about his move to the other side of the world, the things he lost or left behind,  and about the person he became. This song is so pure!

Keep an eye out on Dustin Tebbutt, he wil self-release his album next year in the UK.

Yes, this wonderboy from Brisbane is only 17. He is what i like to call the revelation of 2013. I can hear some Bon Iver influence, but this is also very intelligent, mature, atmospheric, beautiful, innovative and it melts you like chocolate.

Satchmode proves that music can be like a dream. Satchmode proves that music can be like the sun. The great city of Los Angeles must have inspired them to come with this amazing dreampop/synthwave.

This is by far the best Dreampop-track of 2013, so in that genre i have made my pick!

'Best Intentions' comes together with 'Old Fears' on their Collide EP,
available on January 16.

Today’s kick off will be with this electro-rock duo ‘The National Pool’. They started in 2006 and this year they are exploring new sounds, with this new experimental sound as a perfect result.

This is the kind of music i would play on my lazy sunday! The duo from Baltimore added a tropical sound to it, i simply love it!

Vinjette, a Swedish duo from Stockholm did a very interesting rework of ‘Never leave me’ by Karl X Johan.

The result is a very sweet and awesome track!

And because i´m hugging with music today and Stockholm is my favorite city, i also share this amazing mixtape with you. Of course this producer is from Stockholm!

Enjoy both!
