Weekly feature: Best Of EELS

Yoho,

ik heb besloten om elke week een kleine compilatie (van zes tracks) te maken van de beste nummers van mijn lievelingsbands. Waarom? Misschien kende je ze nog niet, of vroeg je je af of het wat voor jou zou zijn, of ben je gewoon op zoek naar iets nieuws. Of een van de grote doelen in je leven is om zoveel mogelijk over mij te weten te komen, dat is natuurlijk ook een volledig valide reden.

Anyways, de eerste band is, zoals te verwachten (en wegens recente ontwikkelingen wel héél actueel) was: EELS.

4 N

EELS maakt..uhm…akoestische-maar-soms-ook-electrische-pop-maar-soms-ook-rock-en-eigenlijk-ook-n-beetje-blues-en-indie-achtige muziek, met een bandsamenstelling die elk album verandert, met als enige constante het songwriter genie Mark Oliver Everett (ook wel bekend als Mr. E). EELS raakt al jaren precies de goede snaar: of het nu de rock-your-shit snaar of de make-your-shit-cry snaar is, E heeft er een album voor.

Ik heb enigszins geprobeerd de depressief-blij ratio 1:1 te houden zodat je niet meteen zin krijgt om je polsen door te snijden, dus all the bases are covered! Alle nummers zijn bij deze en de toekomstige Best Of’s overigens bewust in een bepaalde volgoorde gezet om de perfecte luisterervaring te creëren: Niet goed, geld terug!

 

So, please enjoy: EELS.

And, as always, let me know what you think.

From #temples to #churches.

#church #Korea #SouthKorea #Seoul #religion #Christian #Christianity #cross #Korean #spooky #spoopy #filter #woods #교회 #무서워 #서울 #기독교 I had a great time working with #SBS on their new program #내방안내서 in the beautiful #Mihwangsa #temple. I'm sure that @zazimusic has made @haemin_sunim proud with their song based on his book, #멈추면비로소보이는것들.
며칠동안 #미황사 에서 시간을 보내는 게 큰 인상을 주었고 만난 사람들 너무 친절하게 챙겨서 감사하는 말 밖에 못 한다.
다들 #수고했어.

#Korea #SouthKorea #tv #filming #television #tvshow #Koreantv #Buddhism #Buddha #traditional #절 #불교 #텔레비전 #쇼 #촬영 #버라이어티 #발송 I came back to #Seoul yesterday. Waking up to the sound of cars passing under my window and people shouting instead of the sound of the waves rolling over the beach and bugs chirping, I realized again that a part of me hates this city, no matter how much I love it. Now I understand why #혜민스님 makes the trip back to #미황사 so often even though he lives in Seoul as well.

For people living in a big city like this, it's important to #slowdown and not get caught and lose yourself in the flow of things. Life in the #countryside and in a #temple is so different, so much more #empty, but so much more fulfilling.

Another gorgeous #sunset at #Mihwangsa #temple.
I am so thankful to #SBS and 혜민스님 for letting us stay here.
Just like the title of his book, there are many things you can only see when you #slow down. Staying at the temple and talking with the staff has taught me once again that Korea is an amazing country, and I couldn't be happier to be here. 
#nofilter #Korea #SouthKorea #island #traditional #tranquility #nature #wood #meditation Everything is more beautiful in #Jeollanamdo, even a #sunset.
