After a while, I decided to start posting songs again. Just the ones that are on repeat in my playlists recently. Spotify has prevailed nowadays, so I guess it’s is more convenient than mere youtube links (even though you miss out on the fancy videos or the cool artworks – I never watch them most of the time anyway, so it’s ok for me). If you are careful enough, you will notice that most of the songs in this playlist are already ~1 year old. The reason for that is that I recently formatted my smartphone, and instead of registering to shazam and saving all my searched music on cloud, I chose the hard way of hand-adding them to spotify, while listening to them all one by one. So, they stuck in my mind once again.
Another interesting point, is that I tried to make a nice, coherent, homogeneous style playlist, but I failed miserably. I knew it from before, but I realized once more that I listen to music with absolutely no consistent pattern – just whatever, whenever. e.g. Melodic metal->Nightcore->Greek folk->Chillstep->Indie pop->Goa trance. jump between artists and genres like i am picking up random colorful balls from the ballpit. That also explains why my youtube feed is the mess that it is. Anyway, at least I tried to stay faithfull to alt rock, with some doses of hip hop and a random japanese song in the end. I seriously didn’t know where the hell to place it, and didn’t want to drop it out completely either (sweet ayumi-chan!).
Well, hello there and a Happy New Year! Many argue 2017 ought to be better, considering 2016 with all the celeb deaths etc., but I believe that’s not the point. Our everyday motives and attitude are what WE ourselves must change. And afterwards see the world in a new (bright? – I sure hope so) light.

Well, there’s not much going on around these days. After a chill summer (literally and metaphorically – I refused to part with my lovely 750m high village during August), it’s hard to return to a busy downtown.
Summary of the vacation period: When your noisy company starts to depart and only a few people are left in a gaunt landscape with no stores and no drinks, that’s when the great ideas hit you between the eye. You can be silly and talk deeply at the same time, trembling with bliss all along.
Conclusion #1: My grandma knew what she did when she served mastiha to our guests. Sweet and strong – smells and tastes like summer evenings.
Conclusion #2: Never forget to spend time with people you love. And don’t forget to get to know new people, too. Images and feelings are what keeps the human machine up and running.
Daughter – No Care
The Veils – Do your bones glow at night?
Aim – Cold water music
Alicia Keys – In common
Those lonely, low-viewed songs are the ones that matter
Iggy & Josh Homme, what a lovely collaboration
Spring is here, but it feels like autumn..
without the rain
and without the fallen leaves
and without the naked trees
and without anything that resembles autumn
Point is, autumn melancholy is here and that’s enough
