Just released today, the official video of the song ‘Capsize’ from their second album Sugar Fix (out in a few days) by Dutch-British new soul band Laura Vane & The Vipertones.

“Laura is the chocolate, the Vipertones are the cream, this is the sugar fix.”

Disclaimer: I know how hard these guys and gals work and I wish them a big cherry on top of their future success.

Free Christmas candy from the Netherlands

Filed under: Music by Orangemaster @ 10:59 am


Fed up of the same old Christmas songs on the radio? Then go and download your free copy of Christmas Candy from the Netherlands, a mostly English-language affair from up and coming indie bands that was put together to counter that horrible stuff they dish out on Dutch radio ever year.

Bands include the twangy Gasoline Brothers, indie rockers Silence is Sexy, a band we’ve mentioned before Laura Vane & The Vipertones and the song that says it all Audiotransparent who sing about nasty December radio.

I saw this album come together on Twitter in about a month and you should own it. It has acoustic numbers, soul, rock and is just tasty.

Get your Christmas candy here or listen to the tracks you like and download them.

Merry Christmas 2.0!

Cocktail hour with Dutch band videos

Filed under: Music by Orangemaster @ 5:59 pm

It doesn’t happen very often, but we of the 24oranges are really busy. Here are some videos of Dutch bands in French and English to keep you entertained. Cheers!

First up, the video of Frenchman Serge Gainsbourg’s ‘Qui est in, qui est out’ sung by local favourites The Spinshots, but with the original Gainsbourg video. They will be performing this tonight at pop temple Paradiso in Amsterdam.

Next up, a Dutch-British collaboration Laura Vane & The Vipertones that is playing Amsterdam this weekend and have been getting rave reviews of their first album, which came out a few weeks ago. Here they are with ‘Steam’.
