    1. What's your favorite song by 14?
    - Wake Up (The Arcade Fire)

    2. How did you get into 20?
    - I enjoyed his novelty sounding ukulele songs, so I downloaded his debut album "God Bless Tiny Tim" expecting to hear a plethora of happy songs. What I got was complete insanity, tragedy, and disturbing stuff indeed. I was completely obsessed with the album for at least a month after downloading it. It's actually pretty amazing. (Tiny Tim)

    3. Who is your favorite member in 8?
    - I'm honestly not familiar with any of the band members themselves. I just listen to the music. (Tuxedomoon)

    4. Whats your favorite lyric bit by 29?
    - "My brain is just a jellyfish in the ocean of my head / 'Cause I drank too much tequila and I woke up seein' red." (The String Cheese Incident)

    5. Have you ever seen 22 live?
    - No, never. (The Smiths)

    6. What's your favorite album from 10?
    - Probably Toxicity. (System of a Down)

    The Beau Brummels - Triangle

    The Beau Brummels… Never heard of those guys… Brummels reminds me a lot of the Dutch word ‘pummels’ which means idiots. So there you have it, ‘Beautiful Idiots’.* Well, these beautiful idiots make wonderful music. When I first listened to this album I was honestly surprised: "Wow, this is really pretty". Between the rock bands and psychedelic sounds this music is something else. They are not afraid to use violins, a harmonica or an accordeon and to bring slightly emotional music.

    The voice of the singer is also quite particular. Sometimes he sounds like Bob Dylan (in the low notes, just listen to the first song ‘Are You Happy’: the resemblance is striking), sometimes he sounds like Brian Molko (in the high notes) but most of the time he just sounds like his pretty self.

    This is evocative music, but not in a dramatic way. This music has a sense of happiness (without ever being extatic), it makes you feel at ease. …
