The best of Q1 2017!
door Guuzbourg

Winter melts into spring and will later bursts into summer

Fronted by the flamboyant Marc Bolan, they hit big in Britain during the peak of '70s glam rock, influencing acts ranging from alternative to metal.

Flutes, whistles, panpipes don't suck...they blow!

Twisting, rocking and rolling by the pool.
door René van der Veen
The band that should have been way bigger, in terms of record sales.
door Norbert Pek
Summer never a bummer. Norbert Pek's traditional sunny side up soundtrack.
door Ewout van der Wouden & Michael Kragt
Is it the groove? The lovingly dissonant guitars? John McCrea's flat, sarcastic voice? The band's shout-a-longs? It's Cake, and we love it, that's the only thing for sure.

This could be the beginning of a beautiful Summer...or maybe Spring really IS better; more to look forward to, nothing to be disappointed about.
door Alexis Vos
A lovely Perfect that tries to fill the void Stipe and his mates left behind. A little bit. The sound is there...The Voice is lacking, of course
door Frank Meeuwsen
Let's celebrate those pearls Kurt Cobain left us with. Frank Meeuwsen picked 17 of 'm.
door Jaap Boots
The first word that comes to mind is 'inimitable' (ok, we used google translate for that one). Especially his early works are a grand mixture of blues, pop, funk and audio-collages, to name a few.
door Jack & Paddymac
Blur's nerdy one, with the spectacles, you know, the best guitar player of his generation, the best guitarist since Johnny Marr... Perfect, catchy pop songs with a slightly sour twist and a good piece of melancholy on the side.
door Peter Zantingh
Part two is the more upbeat sequel to the first folky version of this European diptych. Needless to say, of course: this is not just a conceptual Perfect, this is a great collection of tracks.
door Nout van Deijck
This American-Venezuelan king of freak folk made quite a reputation for himself the last 10 years. It's time for a Perfect.
door Rens van den Boogaard
Richard Swift? Richard Swift! The man behind Damien Jurado, Foxygen and others. A great singer-songwriter and a great producer as well. This is an introduction to Swift's work...

1994. Best year in music ever? For some it was a pretty damn perfect year.
door Ted Langenbach
Ted Langenbach is a legendary party guru from Rotterdam. He's been conquering the dancefloors for 25 years. These are his favourite tracks.
door Frank Meeuwsen
Jimi Hendrix, the man who changed guitar music single-handedly, with two hands (and his teeth). Pretty damn hard to make Perfect on this guy, on the left you have the disappointed people and on the right the 'I hate to say I told you so, it's impossible to make a Perfect about God'-crowd. In the middle, there's us.
door Frank Beemer
A perfect artist for a Perfect. A huge carreer with big hits, but he has so many different sides, besides the hits. Frank Beemer made a Perfect about the 'other Elvis' which he calls the 'best of the rest'. Enjoy!
door Norbert Pek
This isn't pulp, this is pure brilliance. Norbert Pek selected his favourite tracks of these Britpop-heroes.
perfect joy division__
door Eddy Stolk
Classic. Classic. Classic. We must say: it takes some guts to make a Perfect about a band like this. You're bound to miss something (according to others) or to be too much in the know. This Perfect is just...well...perfect. Enjoy!
door Reijer van 't Hul & Luuk Kloosterboer
So You Fink You Can Fink? Well, you can now. Although it might appear if you don't listen closey, that Fink is a singer-songwriter, it's actually Fin Greenall and band. And with their intens vibe they take you all kinds of places...
door Hans Vrijmoed
A Perfect 'Pumpkins' mostly based on albumtracks and b-sides. It gives you a heavenly cocktail of rock, goth rock, psychedelia, and dream pop with a topping of swirling, distorted guitars. Just what the doctor ordered. Enjoy!
door DAAU
Melancholy doesn't exclude optimism in this collection of music that was an influence on the members of Daau while composing their 'Eight definitions' album: Brian Eno, Cluster, Johan Johansson and more
door Roy Santiago
The ultimate songwriter's songwriter. Roy Santiago is a songwriter himself and these are his favourite songs by his favourite songsmith.
door Rufus Ketting
All Perfects are made with shitloads of effort and heart...but for some bands it's just a little harder. Sonic Youth is definitely one them...Rufus Ketting went all the way.
door Bent Van Looy
Bent Van Looy made a Perfect of the music that inspired him the most during the making of Around The Bend, his solo album he made with Jason Falker. It's an amazing collection of melancholic songs.

Many mental pictures of Kate Bush are probably the same: Kate B. dancing mystically in a white dress. Anne Broekman is here to set the record straight: she made awesome music!
door René Passet
Perfect Depeche Mode in two parts. The first part: the best songs, the second part: the best remixes. Both carefully selected by Rene Passet.
door David Haakman
The word 'enigmatic' comes to mind... This is an extremely special band. Nothing like this, really. Listen to this Perfect with your headphones on and you'll be enchanted (enigmatic and enchanted, in one introduction! Wow!)
door Johan Gijsen
As Perfect-maker Johan Gijsen puts it: My Morning Jacket evolved from a lo-fi Americana band to a pompous rockband. And he means this in a love-drenched way.
door Henk Kanning
The Yeah Yeah Yeahs definitely deserve a Perfect. Great band, great songs, great singer (!) and about to release their fourth album.
door Judith Laanen
Perfect Australia is surprisingly fresh sounding. A mixture of retro, indiepop and electro. It's still a damn long walk to the land of down under, but bands like Miami Horro, Say Lou Lou and The Griswolds make us wanna go anyhow.
door Norbert Pek
The Summer of '10. What did it sound like? Well, according to Norbert Pek it sounded like Two Door Cinema Club, Kate Nash, Vampire Weekend, The Drums, Divine Comedy, Hot Chip and more.

Is it a band? Is it a singer? No, it's a super record label from the UK! And one of the most appreciated Perfects ever. Compiled with lots of love, by Roy Santiago.

Jon Brion: 'You have to find rhymed verse, then match it with a melody. And then it's dismissed just as 'a pop song.' It is so sad.'

door Michiel Flamman (Solo)
It's only because of archrivals The Smiths and U2 that Ian McCulloch and his band didn't become THE band of the 80's. That's a pity. Dutch singer-songwriter Michiel Flamman explains why.

Yes, Tom Barman is mr. dEUS. He lives dEUS. But this compilation by Guuzbourg is about Tom Barman *without* dEUS. And it's quite brilliant.
