If you don’t learn to laugh at life it’ll surely kill you, that I know-BROM

logo playlistMarch was a dark month, especially in the UK as it was the month when the lockdown measures were put in place, creating a new situation even for the reclusive misfits of society. The sonic output of this month was rich but we did not find it as easy, to identify truly exceptional releases. There were many EPs and albums that confused us both with the plurality of their influences and with the fact that the bands seemed to be unable to make sonic sense out of all this. Once again it was the most experimental approaches to sound that fascinated us and a spirit of relentless energy that has been retained and enhanced from all-time favourite bands.

Look at how a single candle can both defy and define the darkness.-Anne Frank

It is so tempting to ‘see’ everything under the prism of the challenging times in which we are all living at the moment, so we will resist this and perceive the soundtrack of February as a wintry one which accompanies the long nights and the short days of the year.

logo playlistThere have been many debut releases during February, both from solo artists and from new collaborative projects between well-established musicians. Somehow, they all synced, as if they were responding to the same ‘calling’, as if they were following something with the same aura and the same final destination…The playlist of the month could almost be seen as different songs within the same album.

“As long as music is loud enough, we won’t hear the world falling apart”(‘Jubilee’ Derek Jarman)

logo playlistJanuary is typically a ‘quiet’ month in terms of gigs but very rich in its sonic output in terms of album releases. As a new decade has started and the world has not ended (sic) our favourite releases from this month are tracing a sonic path that took us from lyrical gothic to blues and from heavy psychedelia and industrial syncopation to dreamy and eerie soundscapes.

A decade is about to end and we should all be grateful that a war that would affect the whole of the world did not happen. Other important political events around the globe, had a strong impact on everyone and most of the artists that we love, responded to them with sound, powerful soundscapes and dynamic lyrics. music_of_the_decade_best_albumsDuring this decade, Blaue Rosen, has been ‘born’, it has taken up a form and continues to evolve. We have been fascinated by new independent artists, independent labels, festivals that support new and well-established bands, and genre-defying artists. Each month we are publishing a new monthly playlist that contains our favourite releases so that we can create a soundtrack at the end of each year. Each monthly playlist is accompanied by mini reviews of each of the releases that it contains. In addition we constantly strive to take interviews from those musicians that inspire us the most and whose artistic qualities fascinate us. We will do more during the following years!


The music that has been written and has been performed during the last 10 years, tells a powerful story, unique to the period that inspired it. The visuals that accompany these albums, support this story at a symbolic level.  New bands have released amazing debut albums during this decade and well established, all-time favourite bands have taken up a ‘heavier’ sound, maybe as a response to the ‘heavier’ political climate around the globe. All this music accompanied us throughout these years and helped us evolve both our musical taste and our aesthetics.

These are the albums we distinguished out of each of the playlists we have created throughout the decade and the albums we danced to during the decade 2010-2019. Congratulations to all the musicians/bands!

Thank you for your support!
