Below you can find more detailed information on the aforementioned releases.
De titel van het derde album van Nielson zegt eigenlijk alles. Diamant is kleurrijk en veelzijdig, en steeds als je ernaar kijkt (of luistert), ontdek je iets nieuws. Diamant staat voor de vernieuwde Nielson, die zich op dit album van een andere kant laat zien. Zijn nieuwe sound klinkt anders, voelt anders en ís anders: elektronisch, volwassen en internationaal. Om het drie jarig jubileum van Diamant te vieren wordt het album nu ook op vinyl uitgebracht.
Midsommar is a folk horror film written and directed by Ari Aster. It follows a couple (played by Florence Pugh and Jack Reynor) and their friends who travel to Sweden for a festival that occurs only once every 90 years, only to find out that it's part of a Scandinavian pagan cult. The score was created by Bobby Krlic, a.k.a. the Haxan Cloak, who has also produced for Father John Misty, Goldfrapp, Troye Sivan, Björk and many more.
Sweetnighter from 1973 marked a new, more groove-driven approach to the music, and marks the end of the first phase of Weather Report, being the last album Miroslav Vitous played bass on.
Status Quo has been on the top of the music scene for ages. With the most UK chart hit singles, most appearances on BBC's Top of the Pops and a career total of 25 UK top ten albums, there is no doubt why Status Quo is one of Britain's longest-running bands.
The sonic pleasure of hearing Status Quo morph from a psychedelic, “flower power” band into a kick-@ss, rock n' roll, boogie monster can not be understated. This is the perfect 2LP anthology of Status Quo if you want an overview of their early career.
