    There's a Dutch show called Beste Zangers that translates as either "Best Singers" or "Dear Singers" (and both are appropriate). The format is interesting: each year they recruit a selection of singers from various styles of music, and each week for the duration of the show one of the singers is honored and the other singers sing their own interpretations of songs that are meaningful to the singer in being honored (so it may mean songs they've written, songs they've performed, or songs that were otherwise important to them). There isn't a competition, other than that at the end of each episode, the singer being honored chooses one performer who touched them the most. They have one week to prepare their selections with the studio band (who are also incredible) and then they perform together in a one hour segment that intersperses interviews and context with the songs. Denise Hofs as provided English subtitles for us, so we can enjoy not just the songs, but also the full interview. It's by turns interesting, adorable, and tear-jerking. The chemistry and gentle friendliness of everyone is beautiful to watch.

    Here's the first episode for 2019.

    I found out about it because Floor Jansen is on the show this year (ex After Forever, ex ReVamp, current front-woman for Nightwish). She of course is incredible in her interpretations of other people's songs:





    What surprised me was how good everyone else was.

    Henk Poort's take on Disturbed's cover of Sound of Silence is amazing:


    Floor Jansen and Tim Akkerman's duet version of Shallow is sublime:


    Emma Heesters makes me cry (no seriously, I was literally sobbing after listening to this song an hour ago):


    And Samantha Steenwijk just rocks:


    Bonus Beauty and the Beast (classic Nightwish fare) but with Henk Poort playing the part of the Beast:


    I'm slowly working my way through the episodes, and while many of the songs aren't in English, the skill and emotion of the singers and the band is palpable and make it all worthwhile. We need something similar here in America.

    Agreed, I posted the solo Shallow cover right after that episode aired in the Netherlands, but none of the other awesome shit that went down. I find myself unusually drawn to this one:



    Seeing an opera/classical god decked out in jeans and a cowboy hat doing Your Man is a juxtaposition that my brain still doesn't fully accept.

    And it's so well done! Country isn't really my thing, but that performance I find compelling in all the right ways.

    I'm a big fan of Helynt's remixes. They kill it at every front, and Game Chops just released another album by them in the same vein of the '& Chill' series called Super Lo-Fi World. It has a bunch of different game remixes in it and it's sweet.

    New Anamanaguchi album is pretty good. Been like 5+ years since the last one.



    As is the new Caroline Polachek album. Sounds kinda Imogen Heap-ish on some tracks.

    I'm really enjoying the new Anamanaguchi as well. It's funny I first saw them at PAX East way back in 2010, after playing their lone EP released at the time to death.

    I went up to their merch booth after to buy the album and they were super nice to me. Glad to see those guys are doing well.

    Yeah, they've definitely branched out/grown beyond just straight chiptune stuff into a more interesting fusion with EDM. Hardly feels like the same band that put out Dawn Metropolis.
