Warm Wednesday 1

In the area where I live the temperatures are falling due to the autumn and upcoming winter so it would be nice to hear some heartwarming sounds. Here's the Dutch artist Bart Constant, he made a beautiful album called "Tell Yourself Whatever You Have To". Bart Constant's (Rutger Hoedemaekers) songs, sorry I must say compositions are a little like Jonsi meets Al Stewart meets Sufjan Stevens mixed in a Philip Glass. Nice patterns repeating, overlayed with poppy vocals / strings / brass, and the building up is done superb. He made this album in Berlin and with some help from musicians like Colin Benders (Kyteman) for the trumpetsessions and baseplayer Volker Zander (Calexico). Here you see the video "Do Better" it is in my opinion heartwarming not only because of the music but also due to the video read short film. It Won the prize for Best Music Video at the Dutch Film Festival 2011. Here's a link to the complete album on soundcloud. Please do check the song "No North so South" And here's some live footage of No North so South
