I’ve posted about Nick Moods from Rotterdam before, but he deserves more attention because his music is so incredibly good at what it’s trying to do, which is capture a mood and crystallize it in sound. The track above, Nights On The Roof, could be blasted from any rooftop during one of October’s icy, tumultuous nights, or maybe on a street corner in the rain, with a jazz band accompanying it. You could be listening to this track and missing home, or somebody that you love. I don’t really know how to describe it, which is pretty weak coming from someone who’s supposed to be blogging about music, but I’d like to call that ineffable quality a sign of real talent (I swear that’s a compliment, not a cop-out… really!).
Love is Real was the song that brought Moods to my attention. Doesn’t it kind of just make you feel like… love… is real? #dammit
