|Timo’s Pick – The Shifters – Creggan Shops 7″
The Shifters are an Australian post-punk band. Some really dark stuff for these winter days. Just check them out and listen to their weird and amazing sound. It is a shame they’ve only had 3 releases till now.

|Sebastian’s Pick – Daniel Ceasar – Pilgrims Paradise
singer-songwriter Daniel Ceasar from Canada debut album from 2015 might be out for a while but he doesnt get much notice so thats why I would like to recommend you all this great album if your into John Legend for example or R&B and gospel influenced music this is for you!
|Jules’s Pick – Airiel – The Battle Of Sealand
If you are into Shoegaze, you would definitely like Airiel. It finds the perfect combination of sweet vocal lines and noisey maxed out pedal effects. I think this band really stands out with their very own sound. Usually the vocals blend in with the sound of the shoegaze vibe, like a third instrument. This band puts the vocals up front, but also make place for the heavy dose of noise. It makes me feel really energetic every time I listen to it. I highly recommend this album.
|Mac’s Pick – Diet Cig – Over Easy
Diet Cig is a band of two friends who makes punk influenced pop music which they describes as slop pop. Over Easy is their first EP and contain five songs, they also released a double single. Since I don’t hear much people talk about this band I wanted to mention them is this edtion of weekly tunes.
|Luuk’s Pick – Zwart Licht – Geen Manieren
On Friday the 9th of December, a Dutch hip hop group released a new single called: ‘Geen Manieren’ (No Manners). The group is consisting of Hayzee, Akwasi & Leeroy,this is their first single since 2014. Their first album ‘Bliksemschicht’ is a Dutch hip hop classic. After that there were two releases I personally didnt like. But now they’re back in their full glory. They also released a great track and videoclip. Which is full of black lives matter references, in 2017 they will be back with a album and I am really excited for that.
|Jerry’s Pick – Ab-Soul – Do What Thou Wilt
He already did us a pleasure with the two singles: ‘Huey Knew’ and ‘Braille’, but now the album is finally here. ‘Do What Thou Wilt’ is the fourth studio album of Ab-Soul. Pastor Black Lip released his album on the 9th of December. The album contains a tracklist of 16 songs and featurings by: Da$H, Mac Miller, and his colleague ScHoolboy Q. The album is released by the label TDE (Top Dawg Entertainment). If you want to enjoy Soulo’s rhymes and lay back flow, this album is definitely something for you. Enjoy!
