Your favourites (April 2020)

Another month has passed, and what a month it wasโ€ฆ Well, it was the month of April, obviously, and it was a very busy one. It strikes me that the number of new releases has exploded during the pandemic. And If I may be honest: a lot of it doesnโ€™t meet the Carte Blanche Music standards. Sometimes, Iโ€™d like to yell: โ€œItโ€™s not enough to have the time and the means to make a recording. For a decent song, you need talent as well!โ€ In other words: I listen to a lot more songs lately, only to end up with the ten good ones a week that Iโ€™d really like to recommend you. But hey, I happen to love listening to new music and making the best selection possible for you guys, so Iโ€™m not complaining!

Still, thereโ€™s much more great new music than I can write about. Check (and follow) my 2020 Spotify-playlist for the rest of the best. I update it constantly, so youโ€™ll find it there first.

So, which of my recommendations were most popular in April? As you may know by now, I write about artists for all over the world, not sticking to the countries that provide most of today’s popular music, the US and the UK. Iโ€™m very glad to see that reflected in the articles that you liked best in the past month. France (Shanguy), Iceland (Daรฐi Freyr), Belgium (Tout Va Bien), Canada (Roquemore) and even my own tiny Netherlands (Inge van Calkar) are represented amongst Your Favourites. That makes me proud.
