Swiniging Saturdays #86 : Spotify ABC ~ D

Swinging saturdays is a musical meme hosted by Ice Cold Passion, to share our passion for music. The goal is to make a top 5 (or Top 10) for whatever genre or artist you like or get creative and share a theme based music top 5. For example a bookish soundtrack, funny songs, song to listen to on a rainy day top 5.

I took a Saturday off, I spend the day, taking down all the Christmas decorations and cleaning the house. I can tell you it was needed. We made a typical Dutch dish (split pea soup) and we watched some Criminal Minds, our new addiction. 

I might not have told you this but I own a company with my sister Isabelle, we used to work every Saturday, we have our weekend personnel, they do all our production work for us. Saturdays I am usually printing labels, arrange the warehouse and other things we do not have time for during the week. We both used to be present on Saturdays. However this new year we are taking a different approach we are dividing the Saturdays between the two of us, which means last Saturday I was off, and this Saturday I am working. 

So that is a little bit about my personal live, lets get into a new round of Spotify artists, starting with a D. In the D category I have: Dana Sipos, Dananananaykroyd, Daniel Romano, Danny Vera, Dave House, The Dead South, The Deaf, Dean Lewis, Death Alley, Death Cab for Cutie, Declan McKenna, Des Rocs, Devil Electric, Dewolff, Distrubed, Donnerwetter, and last but not least the Dropkick Murphy's. Wow, that was a long list! So I am picking 5 of these and this week it is going to be my favorites, just because I can. 

Can you figure out which ones will be present below (before scrolling down, that is) ? 

Danny Vera ~ Roller Coaster

I fell in love with his music, when I saw him play on "Bevrijdingsfestival" in Zwolle, I was suprised by how good it was. Little did I know that he would become such a prominent name in the Dutch music scene. Roller Coaster is so big that it made it all the way to the number one position in the Top 2000, knocking down Bohemian Rapsody from it's throne, where it has been for years. I think that indicated how beloved this song already is by the people here in the Netherlands. For all my non Dutch readers, I am proud to present to you Danny Vera! Let me know if you enjoyed it!

DeWolff ~ Big Talk

Well let's get the other Dutch band out of the way before we move on to North America. I didn't know which song to pick, to showcase their talent, so let's go with one of the more recent ones, well recent, we are going back to 2018 they have released a new album in 2020 and I just saw another release is coming up soon, in February this year. We can definitely say that they have been using Covid to their advantage, 2 albums relatively shortly following each other up. If you like this band, I can suggest their vinyl for your collection, I have 3 albums all are very special, one is green transparent, the other gold, another has the band on printed on the vinyl, which is also very pretty. So if you want something special for your collection their albums are really a treat. I usually buy them at their shows but I am thinking of pre-ordering the new album since well, there are no live shows to go to.

The Dead South ~ In Hell I'll Be In Good Company

Hello, Canada, from the most boring province, sorry Saskatchewan, comes a great band, The Dead South, In Hell I'll Be In Good Company, if so simple but yet so effective in what it is. I love this song, I can put it on repeat and it will never be boring. Bonus that this is coming from my second home on this planet, Canada, I miss you.

Dave Hause ~ Wild Love

Well we are hopping across the border to to Philedelphia, USA. I am very fond of the LP "Bury Me In Philly" I bought the LP at the show I went to in Bitterzoet, Amsterdam. It was a great show, Wild Love is one of my favorite songs. I hope you enjoy it as well.

Devil Electric ~ Hypnotica

We are finishing this top 5 in warm and sunny Australia, all though I would not call their music warm and sunny to be honest. This music is dark and earily beautiful. I have a much love for female lead singers, iti is something I am always on the look out for. They have been working on a new album for a while I am very curious when it comes out. Devil Electric has released to singles of this album, both sound very good!

This was a really hard one, only picking five, out of a pool of great artists, but I made it once more, I hope you have a wonderful Saturday!
