new and on top of the list, close to Ben Howard). I'm a sucker for
german music - Bosse, Tomte and most of all Kettcar. Sometimes I
fall for Amy MacDonald-songs.
I have an account on last.fm - so just ask, if you want to know
Food: I don't like meat but I love cooking. I eat
a lot of vegetables and consider cheese to be awesome. I'm thinking
