Capture the Colour of summer music festivals

  I believe that I see the world differently than most people. And I mean that literally because I am colorblind. I have red-green colorblindness. I only knew about it when I was 17, when I took the medical exam to enter university. It’s not bad. I didn’t even know I had it until then. […]

The last day of Way Out West 2012 was not that happening for me. The only band I wanted to see was Miike Snow. I couldn’t care less for the others, save for Kraftwerk with their 3D glasses gimmick. I didn’t go in the end because I wasn’t able to acquire those free 3D glasses […]

The Shins Live at Hovefestivalen 2012

“This is way beyond my remote concern of being condescending.” Ahhhh, The Shins! My favorite band-on-repeat back in college when I was a skinny, pimply kid with the iPod U2 edition (which is still alive by the way). Their albums “Chutes Too Narrow” and “Oh, Inverted World” were forged in melody and drenched in atmosphere. Their […]
