Phosphorescent - Song for Zula

Dear ones, hope you all have a joyful holiday season! See you in 2013!
To end this year properly, something special discovered by my dearest Berit.
Enjoy!

The XX - Last Christmas

Hi, guys!

Sorry for the lack of postings. I took time off and flew to London to enjoy Florence and the Machine's  concert (I'll give you a full overview of that in the near future!) and after that started my work in a new company, so it has been crazy.

But! I wish you all nice holidays! Take time off, enjoy the company of your loved ones and all the warm emotions!

From me to you -  the coolest Christmas song!

Junior Boys

Junior Boys performed in Tallinn couple of months ago. I had a chance to go to the concert and it was great.  A bit from their creation to you too.


27 November, 2012

Fever Ray - Concrete Walls

Oh, this is dark. The darkest you have seen in Muusikamaagia. Are you up to it?
With a proper bass and moment, very enjoyable.

26 November, 2012

Turboweekend - Neverending

In my opinion, every weekend is a turbo weekend - after leaving the office Friday night can´t even blink my eyes and I´m back in Monday morning thinking "What?"

Mario M Feat. Epp Kõiv - Neon Phoenix

Estonian music has been an often visitor to this blog during the year.  The girl., Epp, has been featured here before with couple of songs as a leadsinger in the drum band called Kõrvalhüpe. This time with Mario M, a long-experienced drum producer from Estonia.

Fleetwood Mac remixes

Inspired from the Fleetwood Mac song "Everywhere", which has been an entertainer for me and my friends for a while now, I found some of their remixes.

First of all, "Everywhere":



And the remixes


15 November, 2012

Great Northern - Houses

This one goes to my funniest Berit and to the weekend we spent listening to the song, repeatedly.

12 November, 2012

Ry - Berlin

I won´t even start to describe  how this songs makes me feel. Crazy.

09 November, 2012

08 November, 2012

Chet Faker special

Is it the beard. Is it the music. Most probably both together with that little additional x-factor.

06 November, 2012

FAYE - Water Against The Rocks

Have you heard smth about Faye before? I haven´t, but it seems that we will hear from her a lot in the future.

BOY - Little Numbers

One of those I-wanna-clap-my-hands song

05 November, 2012

Grimes - Genesis

Those crazy chicks. Sometimes I can´t even look at the video, just listen. Weird thing about that.

01 November, 2012

Massive Attack & Warpaint & Mark Lanegan - Cristalised (The XX cover)

Even if the new The XX album is out, the covering of the previous one hasn´t  still ended. But can´t say I have had enough either. At the moment I´m waiting for the new remixes already. My fingers are crossed for Jamie XX to release some of the marvellous remixes from Coexist, as he did for the previous album.


30 October, 2012

Tallinn Daggers

I have featured the new EP from those fabulous Estonian boys, but after that I started to listen to their older creation and I just can´t believe that I didn´t hear about them already years ago, because they are good. And not just good, I mean GOOD!

My favourite pieces so far:

26 October, 2012

2:54 - Sugar

I´m so glad that I had the chance to see them live this summer. They are a bit like The XX´s little sister (or brother)


24 October, 2012

Jaden Smith - Pumped Up Kicks (Like Me)

Small version of Will Smith aka his 14 year old son covering Pumped Up Kicks. What can I say, ain´t bad.


22 October, 2012

Future Islands - Little Dreamer

It just takes you away. The feeling that all you want to do is reach for a cigar and a class of cognac and picture yourself in a nostalgic black&white movie.
Or am I alone with that?



18 October, 2012

Faded Paper Figures: Invent It All Again

Cheerful things always work for me. An additional injection of positivity is never too much.


17 October, 2012

Delilah - Shades Of Grey (SpectraSoul Remix)

Haven´t featured a dnb track for a long time. The thing is, there haven´t been one that I was really into, either.  But this one, somehow it works.


15 October, 2012

Sigur Rós - Valtari (Full Album)


I took a night off, just to myself (the pace has been harsh lately). I went for a run, cooked myself a nice meal and took a book. A book I´ve been waiting for a long time. Sigur Rós´s new album Valtari as my companion.

Miike Snow - Pretender

Disco, baby!

11 October, 2012

Phaeleh - Lament

Oh, so chill. Phaeleh is pretty much always a sure thing. Didn´t let me down this time as well.
Thank you, Jürgen, for sharing!

10 October, 2012

RY / Frank Wiedemann - Howling

Hi, guys!

Trying to get back on track with my blog. Not an easy task, must say. So much things going on and it´s hard to find the time. But, the good thing is, I have a lot of music stored and waiting to be shared.

This one goes to Nele who shared this great piece with me. Thank you! And also to Mark, who has been so patient over the months waiting the blog to come alive again :)

05 October, 2012

ADELE - Skyfall

Hi, guys!

How have you been?
Adele released new James Bond theme. Great collaboration is when you still recognise each participant and in this case, it works.

08 August, 2012

The xx - Chained

The xx released second single from their upcoming album (can´t wait for September!). Another repeat-material for me!

Psst! I´m on a vacation but back in Estonia and enjoying my summer here. I have so many tracks waiting for you starting with some really good Australian electronical movie soundtracks and to the dream pop from different decades. Hopefully next week, guys :)



25 July, 2012

The Targets - Matter Of Time - FREE download for fans

Hi, guys!

Received a letter from Conrad from The Targets with great news - all of you can now download their song Matter of Time (which was already covered here in April) for free. You can do that by heading to their website www.thetargets.co.uk ) .


Thanks to Conrad and The Targets for the recognition. Muusikamaagia is flattered :)

Positivus 2012 overview



So, here it is - overview of Positivus 2012 line-up.  The main theme is very chill (I think it has never been that chill) and alternative. Mostly rock and indie alternative in my opinion. Suits me well.

I made you a playlist, so you can easily access and play all the songs. Picked appr 2 songs from each artist and left out the small ones which didn´t click for me.

You can find it here (just click on the name of the song and it will open in youtube where all the songs will appear on the bottom of the page)

16 July, 2012

The xx - Angels

Surprise from The xx - the lead single from their 2012 album "Coexist". My the most long-waited album in 2012. I´m in love.


07 July, 2012

Niki And The Dove- Somebody

One of the acts I´m looking forward the most in Positivus.
Psst! I have been asked to make an overview of the bands performing in Positivus this year, so I´ll do my best to find the time. Hopefully I can surprise you soon :)


06 July, 2012

Rudimental - "Spoons" ft. MNEK & Syron



So, finally figured out how to change the size of the video. Actually, feels like a blond moment for me, can´t believe it took me so long to notice the html button to give me the opportunity to make the adjustments.  Anyway, smth from more electronical and smooth side. Hope you like it!

04 July, 2012

02 July, 2012

Jessie Ware - 110%

Sorry for the lack of postings. It´s summer, more lenient punishment, please :)


18 June, 2012

Cuteness overdose

Hi, guys! Are you ready for a cuteness overdose? If not, just pass on :) If yes, I have collected all my favourites here, so enjoy :)






10 June, 2012

Külalised - Paradiis

Külalised (Estonian talented band), my applause and bow. This is great!
Represents perfectly my Sunday. Me-time.



06 June, 2012

Sebastien Tellier - La Ritournelle

Fun fact: Sebastian participated in the Eurovision contest years ago with the song called "Divine". Total surprise for me.


05 June, 2012

29 May, 2012

Miike Snow - Burial

Long time no hear, right. Well, I have to admit, I´ve been a bit lazy :) It´s a madhouse at work, so much to do. Hopefully can get back on my normal track starting from next week. My youtube is full of favourites which just scream for sharing. I´ll start with my ultimate favourite these days :)


21 May, 2012

Urban Cone - We Should Go to France

It got me thinking - we should really go to France.

Urban Cone - We Should Go to France by UniversalMusicSweden

(Click the link to hear the track :)

Nitin Sawhney ft Imogen Heap - Bring It Home

A friend of mine was sure he found this track from my blog and for my surprise as well, I have never posted it (or just deleted by accident, totally my style). Anyway, two great artists together, a great song from the electronical side of music. 
Psst! If you like this, one suggestion from the past posts as well - Breathing Light - Nitin Sawhney


17 May, 2012

Everything But The Girl - Downhill Race (Kenny Dope Mix)

Even all the traffic jams seem so enjoyable when you have the album playing in the background.


16 May, 2012

Everything But The Girl - Mirrorball (DJ Jazzy Jeff Sole remix)

Do you remember the 80´s band called Everything But The Girl? Well, their remixes are the best ones I have ever heard. So, beware, I have prepared my 4 favourite ones for you  for the next 4 days.



15 May, 2012

Niki & The Dove - Tomorrow

Positivus Festival 2012  warm-up vol2.
PS! Times played in iTunes? Appr. 100 already. I see an obsession growing here.


11 May, 2012

Santigold - Big Mouth

It´s crazy. Totally crazy. But I´m off to Stockholm for a long weekend and to set the mood, I loaded some Santigold to my iPhone, together with all the other muusikamaagia´s songs. It´s gonna be a one hell of a good weekend!



09 May, 2012

Notte Sento

Something different today. A film, made of photos, so darling.


07 May, 2012

Tiger Milk - The Game

More Estonian music. They are making some good stuff here (among with a lot of crap, unfortunately) :)


02 May, 2012

30 April, 2012

Vondelpark - Camels

Is any of you coming to Positivus festival in Latvia this summer? I´ll definitely go, the ticket is already impatient in my wallet, not to mention myself. Keane, The Vaccines and Vondelpark etc. are waiting and as I understood, there are some big surprises still coming up regarding the line-up. So, if you have a chance, it would be great to meet you there :)

To warm this up, Vondelpark.


25 April, 2012

The Police - Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic

Total nostalgia for me. I don´t know how it happened, but my work computer is suddenly  full of the music I listened to in high school (yes, it was a long time ago). So, for the second day in a row I have been listening to all the greatest pieces from that period. The sun is shining outside (spring finally found it´s way) and feels like dancing all day long.

The Targets - Matter Of Time

They say that The Targets have a huge future ahead, the next big thing in UK. They might not be wrong.


24 April, 2012

Kate Miller-Heidke - Nightflight

The song is one of those cute songs, which make me smile when enjoying a night at home, but the sound and the atmosphere that the song creates and the lyrics, they are just so controversial. Don´t you think?


23 April, 2012

John Talabot - Destiny

This one goes to Sten. Helped me focus today a lot at work.


Bombay Bicycle Club - How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep

Actually, I have the same question - How Can You (read: I) Swallow So Much Sleep?
PS! The  video is really cool.



o Much Sleep

19 April, 2012

Rhye - Open

No introduction/comments about the song today. I´d be happy if you´d write that for me, to the comments perhaps :)

By Nele: "mõned hääled on sametist tehtud. viiulid ja samet. hea! tahaks kohe koju minna ja pokaali punast veini omale valada. täpselt selline muusika! ;)". (If you don´t understand Estonian, google translate will help you indeed :)
Thank you, Nele!

By Keith: "I really like how this song spoke of unbridled passion and uninhibited love...beautiful "
Thanks, Keith!


18 April, 2012

Polica - Amongster

I was really obsessed with the last song from Polica  I posted here. This one. With the song, with the video. Everything. Total repeat-material for me. Let me introduce you the next one - Amongster.


17 April, 2012

Tom Vek - Aroused

The video is just amazing! I think smoking has never been so sexy.


15 April, 2012

Chromatics - Kill For Love

To the questionable value of Sundays.
PS! I really like the picture in the background :)


12 April, 2012

Stereophonics

I don´t know what´s with the Stereophonics, but they keep finding their way back to my playlist. The last time was the strangest - I had a dream and Stereophonics was playing in the background. How freaky is that? After that I keep on playing them in the car, at work, at home etc. So, the 3 songs which have conquered my playlist:





11 April, 2012

Intouchables soundtrack

There aren´t that many movie soundtracks that I´m really into. The last one was Drive´s which was featured here quite a lot as well. Let me introduce you the next one - the Intouchables soundtrack! Before I go to the music, I have to say - if you haven´t seen it yet, definitely watch the movie! Really good movie-experience for me.
But, the soundtrack. The genre varies a lot, so be ready for funk to piano solo. I do like them all, but have to admit that my personal favourites are the Ludovico Einaudi piano pieces (especially Una Mattina :).
If you´d like to hear the rest of the soundtrack, I´d recommend this  link















10 April, 2012

To the Black Poodles

I attended a party last week which inspired me to do a post just with the music I heard there. It was one of the brightest evenings I have had in a while (it was the wicked wine-night-out I mentioned in the Easter post :))
I used Shazam (app for iPhone to recognize the songs playing) all night long. Lined up my favourites from ou too many decades for you :)












Electric Guest - This Head I Hold

To give this day an energetic start!


09 April, 2012

Lykke Li - Knocked Up (Kings of Leon cover)

It has been a while since the last time I heard something from Kings of Leon. Would be really a happy puppy if they´d release smth new. But the collaboration between Lykke Li and Kings of Leon is great!


05 April, 2012

Kate Rogers - Fine

The year was 2007 and this was one of the first songs with what I realized that this is my cup of music all the way.
Long holiday weekend ahead, I´m planning to enjoy it to the fullest - a lot of ice cream, photography day trip, wicked wine-night-out (yes, that´s my favourite!) and a lot of good company.
What amazing plans do you have for the holiday weekend?

My first happy egg :)

Florence + The Machine - Only If For A Night

Long time no Florence, right. If you haven´t discovered that one by yourself before, then listen. Good one. But what more can we excpect from Florence.


25 March, 2012

Florrie - Begging Me

New pop princess. With all the looks, attitude and tune, impacts indeed.


24 March, 2012

23 March, 2012

The Weeknd - House Of Balloons - Glass Table Girls

Oi, oi, oi! The Weeknd is becoming one of my favourite artsists if they continue like this. It´s just amazing how they manage to do the exact tune I´d like to listen.


22 March, 2012

Jońsi - Sinking Friendships

More and more I get into the powerful and atmospheric sound that Jonsi delivers. Oeh.. fantastic!
If you´d like to hear Jońsi´s music and the music Jońsi has selected then go and watch the movie "We Bought a Zoo". Music definitely balances the topic.



21 March, 2012

Frankie Rose - Had We Had It

From the music maniacs Olavi and Leen. Leen is by the way the lead-singer of Electrobation.Listen and support talented Estonian artists here


20 March, 2012

Grimes - Oblivion

This one goes to my friend Tim! Like he said, there is something really catchy in there, but can´t really tell what. Couldn´t have said it any better.



19 March, 2012

Thanks, guys!

 Thanks, guys, from all over the world for visiting Muusikamaagia and for all your positive feedback! It´s truly inspiring! Hope I can surprise you in a positive way further on as well :)

My thanks go to every green country in the picture and to every one of you!

High Contrast - Almost Human (feat Clare Maguire)

For a Saturday evening! It´s starts quite calmly, but the end will surprise you. It´s High contrast, still.
Psst! Do you have any favourites from the new album "The Agony and The Ecstasy" to suggest? Haven´t had time to listen to it yet, but really eager to find out.
