Howdy!

Today is the last day for Tune Tuesday! I hope you have enjoy this year’s worldwide lineup. I find it very fun to end it on a new country to the lineup: Switzerland! If you’re wondering why I’m not adding USA onto the list, that’s because I have something pretty fun brewing right now so you’ll have to be on the look out for that soon.

Back in February I was watching a special on our PBS channel and it was about the creations of some of the scariest stories to come out of England in the 1800’s. Mary Shelley and her husband Percy along with her stepsister Claire plus Lord Bryon and John William Polidori stayed in a villa by Lake Genova in Switzerland. The weather was awful so they had to spend their days and nights indoors, to pass time they told stories and poems. Lord Bryon basically told them all to write the scariest story they can come up with and thus Mary Shelley created parts of the first draft of “Frankenstein” while Polidori began working on his first story “Vampyre” which would be about the modern vampire of the day.

I thought it was very neat for an hour show. It’s always stayed there in the depths of my brain so I kind of told myself early on that I needed to create a Tune Tuesday of Switzerland so I could tell you about it. Now back to the music!

I had to have some help with finding some Swiss music so I put out a tweet that I was looking for anybody to help me out and I actually found a blogger who is a native of Switzerland. Solange gave me a whole list of different music which I thought was very nice and I’m hoping that’ll help me out the next time I do this! She suggested I look into a duo as I’ve gathered, they’re called Dabu Fantastic and they seem to do pop/ubran music in their native tongue which I love! They kind of remind me of a Swiss version of The Chainsmokers and I mean that in the nicest way. They’re pretty good!

The other one she gave me was a female singer Stefanie Heinzmann, like Dabu Fantastic I am not familiar with her, but there are some differences with her as she tends to have an indie-pop sound like Zella Day and Ingrid Michaelson. As I’ve managed to find on Spotify, she does her music in English and has a wonderful voice!

Are there any other music acts from Switzerland that you think I should look into? Let me know!

4 Years Of Tune Tuesday Worldwide!

Untitled

Howdy!

So it is almost summer and you know the deal! It’s time for my worldwide Tune Tuesday posts to come back!

Can you believe I’ve been doing these for FOUR years?! The reason why I started writing these types of posts is because back then, I desperately wanted to write about music but I didn’t have any ideas on where to start, I was even doing my reviews at the time but they weren’t very good. So I kept thinking about all of the music and how international my tastes had become.

I liked freaking out my family and friends of where some of their favorite artists and bands weren’t from the US like Seether! They were featured in the first year and they’re originally from South Africa!

Every year, the lineup changes, if I add more than two or three artists/bands in their native country I tend to lose that country for the next year! Last year I had a lot of new countries I included like Colombia, Puerto Rico, and Romania! Unfortunately, they’re not going to be on this year’s rooster and neither is Africa as a whole! I do have a couple of newbies coming this summer like Iceland and Switzerland!

Here is what we’re talking about for 2017!

Australia | Canada | Denmark | England | France | Iceland | Ireland | Netherlands | Norway | Poland | Sweden | Switzerland | United States of America

It is much shorter than the previous years, but I did remove a bunch of countries that I normally about like Germany! I actually ran out of music from there and I am really bum about that! Hopefully I can find some new music for it next year, as I’d like to bring it back. I already have Finland coming back in 2018!

As a way to get you interested until next Tuesday, I have created a whole playlist of musicians I have already talked about in my posts in the past four years! I tried to go by country (alphabetical order) but I didn’t last very long so I’m sorry for that! I’m bound to do that, as long as I don’t do it on here we’re good! It’s bad enough I’ve messed it up on my calendar! I will continue to do my monthly playlists and I try to include the artists in those playlists too! Plus any reviews that I do, especially the music reviews of any kind will be posted on Thursday until August! Hope you all enjoy!

If you have any suggestions for what I should include in Summer 2018’s list, please let me know and whatever country they’re from too! I will give you credit and be appreciated too!
