Send me your sounds

ThingsThatMatter is a love woven tumblelog on everything new music and inspiration for clean ears and open minds. And vice versa.

You'll find lots of pearls from the world of neo-classical music—think Nils Frahm, Ólafur Arnalds, A Winged Victory for the Sullen, etc. But I also like to peek into other styles that are closely related like ambient, electronica, jazz, and experimental. And I share insights, photos and news I come across while hunting for new music.

So, mind your head, use some good headphones, and simply enjoy.
