Newness galore for spring 2017.
door Norbert Pek
The best of Q1 2017!
door Guuzbourg

Perfect preparation for London Calling, 28 & 29 october @ Paradiso Amsterdam!

Shamelessly neo-romantic, slick with good taste...that's 'Knuffel Indie'.

Summer never a bummer. Norbert Pek's traditional sunny side up soundtrack.
door Norbert Pek
While hiding for winterstorms that never come, this is your soundtrack. For the 5th time Norbert Pek made Perfect Binnen Blijven. With some great recent tracks and some of that good old melancholia.
door Norbert Pek & Wilbert Leering
Alt-J's sound is unique, of this was kind of a tricky Perfect. From the XX to Tom Vek and from Wild Beasts to Teleman. And everything in between (en right next to it).
door Rufus Ketting
Blonde Redhead is a trip and Rufus Ketting is the tour guide.

Summer 2014 just got more perfect.

14 reasons for some good ol' euphoric dancing. By St Paul.
door Theo Miggelbrink
Subroutine Records is a dutch 'indie, pop, rock and noise' label, from Groningen to be exact. Since 2005 they release some pretty exciting stuff. Time for a 'summary'.
door Pondertone
A 17 track perfect synopsis of Eels. Gloomy: yes, boring: never. Around the dark clouds the weltschmerz, guilt and sorrow there is still some silver lining...this is not rock bottom, it can always get worse!
door Ik Zie U Graag Festival
'Ik Zie U Graag' is the Belgium The Netherlands. This year it's being held for the 6th time. This Perfect is a fantastic overview of the 5 earlier editions.
door Job Roggeveen
What inspires Happy Camper Job Roggeveen to make such beautful songs? Well: eels, Das Pop, Sufjan Stevens, Chilly Gonzales and more. Great songs only.
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 Peter Zantingh
Part one is a melancholic, folky trip that takes you through the greatest cities in Europe. BTW: this is not just a conceptual Perfect, this is a great collection of tracks.
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...
door Rick de Leeuw
This 19xx-series is a search for the best music year in the history of mankind. The question: is it 1977? Maybe it is. Maybe it isn't. This Perfect 1977 is pretty perfect. By Rick de Leeuw.

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 Norbert Pek
Staying inside because of rain, thunder, twisters isn't a drag when you play Perfect Binnen Blijven 4 by Norbert Pek. With The Hollies, Arcade Fire, Eels, Dan Croll, more.
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 Kurt Vile
Kurt Vile released this Mixtape in anticipation of his EP titled It’s A Big World Out There (And I’m Scared) and the deluxe edition of Wakin On A Pretty's pretty damn Perfect.

door Matthijs van der Ven
Glasgow, a city of music. From Belle And Sebastian to Paolo Nutini and from Rachel Sermanni to Mogwai. This Scottish city has it all. Onder Invloed’s Matthijs van der Ven is the right man for the job: making Perfect Glasgow.
door Bas Krijn
The Beatles are NOT on Spotify or Deezer, but in a way they are. By their influence on so many bands. These 16 songs the greatest Beatlesque songs Bas Krijn could find . It's not better than the Fab Four, but still perfect!
door Guuzbourg
He's known as the architect of the Manchester Sound, he was co-founder of Factory Records and died way to young (he was just 42). This Perfect proves why he earns the Perfect Producer-title.
door Nicole Blommers
Nicole Blommers made this ode to Chilly - and we quote her and second that - 'who's an inspirational, multi-talented, unstoppable musical genius.' Get ready for a rollercoaster ride of musical vibes.
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 Erik Verzijl
This guy must be the inspiration for all of Jens Lekman's work. And many others. A true pearl on, this one. Made by Erik Verzijl.
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.

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.

door Guuz Hoogaerts (aka Guuzbourg)
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.

Goosebumps to the max. The gift that keeps on giving. The all you can eat buffet of great music, served bij dj St. Paul.
