post-retro indie-pop (PRIP)
I like making music because it is such a versatile hobby; writing, composing, playing, recording. It forces me to try to become better in a lot of fields; I would love to be able to play better guitar (and keyboard) so I’m still practising. It also encourages me to read literature and poetry, closely listened to other music). And it opens the possibility to meet lovely new people like you (yes you!).
All my stuff:
suggestions are welcome!
#update: nearly finished my opening song. February has 31 days, hasn’t it?

hey, Rob, thanks for listening to Strawberry jam, glad you liked it!
Waiting for summer too..
Hi Rob, thanks for the comments on my songs...I really appreciated that.
Thank you so much for your lovey comments on my songs! Much appreciated!
Hi Rob - Thanks for commenting on my songs! Thinking in hindsight, the collab song of yours - "My Addiction", would've been a good one for the addiction skirmish earlier on in FAWM. I'm glad I got to hear your songs this year. Your style is very laid back and all your songs are enjoyable. 😀
Also, I presume your album art cover is an allusion to Hieronymus Bosch - a Dutch man like yourself?
Thank you very much for your kind words on my songs, I highly recommend both movies.
Thanks so much for listening to my songs and your kind comments. It really meant a lot to me. 😀
Hi Rob, thanks for the comment on my song Moving Up Seventh Floor, yes my friend loved the Beatles, and she was already in love with another guy. Fortunately my wife loves the Beatles too 😀
Thanks for all the awesome comments and feedback! I've been so busy I hadn't stopped by in a while😊
Thanks for your kind comments on several of my songs. Truly appreciated.
Thank you, Rob, for all your encouragement. Back when I had cats, I had two, and sometimes, my Shasta was enough for about three when it came to doing stuff in the kitchen. I constantly had to tell her that she can't get her water if she keeps trying to walk under my feet. I miss those guys.
Thanks Rob for the Nice compliments and comments on My songs! Im still in the catching up phase! Dis Watchlist you so will listen more.
Thanks Rob! I hope you can relax. 😀
Thanks for your comments - especially on 'Post-truth Love Song' it hasn't had much attention since the demo was added (originally posted as lyrics only)
Hey man - stopping by later today to do some catching up. I've been working late last week so hopefully I can finish up my unlocked tunes before it gets too far gone in March.
Hi Rob thanks for your comments! Anti-Christmas song! LOL! I will do it next year! 😀
Thanks for all of your comments. <3
Thank you for listening to "Unbotton my dress". 'I want to meet your cat' is THE best pic-up line and works like a charm 😀
Congrats on writing nine songs in a week!
Btw I agree with what you said about fade-outs (re: Reveries). If I'm not sure about how to handle stuff, I seem to do fade-outs. I'm going for a different approach now, thanks.
Thanks Rob for coming by my page and all of your kind comments! Much appreciated! Yes we will need to do a collab next year! For sure! Now I need to listen to songs I missed!
Thank you for your kind words for two of the songs I was involved in! I made an English translation of Make Revolt for you. Hope it's better than Google's.
I meant YOU not we lol
Thanks for the comment on Pink Sky - we got precisely what I intended so that was awesome. I liked the progression of a creepy person to just seeing them as a human being. always nice when people get it 😋
Hey Rob, I'm a big fan of yours and look forward to hearing you at 50/90!
Hey man! Glad you could make it. I'll be back later tonight to listen in.
If you think you will make demo, you should do a place holder...if you are close to completing. If not,another time
Hey, thanks for your nice comments on my lyrics! Btw, it doesn't look like summer here either...had to dig deep for that one! Ha
Thanks for listening, Rob. And thanks for the encouragement!
Thanks for listening to my rap song. This was so much fun to do! Due to your encouraging comment, I might change genre all together now 😀
Thank you for reading and commenting on 'The Bus, the Young Man and the Wheelchair'. 😀
Yes, true about rules/guidelines. Though I believe the young man in the wheelchair was humiliated largely because the driver insisted on fastening the belt for him, even though he was actually willing to - and capable of - doing it himself.
Hi Rob. Thanks for the listen. It might be football terminology! I found it in a list of titles I had written down some time. It might have come from Titular, who knows?
The "bad event" was that I had three guitars that all played the same note at one point, in a non-chord (let's see, it would be D A D G#) that I could not get my hands to do, and I kept screwing it up and eventually just left it in, two guitars playing G# and one playing who knows what.... it just sounds terrible to me, so thank you for not noticing. 😀
Hi Rob...here are the other lyrics
Feathers and beads
Swirl in a rainbow
you can add a chorus or not. I renamed it Golden Gate Park....because they are all scenes from GG Park
Great you will do something.
I will see what I come up with
Just yesterday I was wondering, "Where is Rob from Amersfoort this year? I want to hear his little gems." And here you are.
Sent to your site, but don't know if it got sent.
You invited me to send you something, so here it is:
Bay leaf incense
Golden Gate Park
Matcha tea wafting
On the way to Seal Rock
Fragrance of anise
Mixed with the seals’ barks
Pungent salty spray
With a thundering crash
Memories come flooding
Of San Francisco Daze
Pot and Patchouli
Use what you like, or if too busy, no problem
Great Rob! 😀
Hee Rob, ik heb nog wel wat. Zal ik het je mailen?
Hey, again. I actually found something that I wrote this FAWM that was kinda incomplete so I never posted it thinking I'd make it longer; however, I think I'd like to see what you do with it as it also works as it is and think you could do it justice. I have PM'd it to you on Facebook. Thanks!
Hey, Rob. Thanks for your message. I'll see what I can come up with you and can back to you soon!! Hope all is well!
Hey there Rob! I have this little sort of a song that I got stuck on that might be of interest. Feel free to use any of it. If a no go I might have something else around.
Green eyes see into my soul
You make me lose control
I cannot think when I'm near you
What is it that you do?
I'm your prisoner, I'm unfree
Because you do what you do to me
But I am yours for eternity
Hi...thought I would drop by and hear something from you.
I still remember fondly our random collaboration
Thanks for listening to my album, Rob! 7th Circle sure is a great cover! Made me revisit the Inferno. What a great topic for a concept album...
robs, thanks for the activity on my page. i'll have to check back to see if/when you've uploaded something. cheers!
Thank you for listening to I think we did okay.
No songs from you yet?
No songs yet? Hope you'll catch the bug and hit us with some lovely tunes at some point 😀
Hey, how's it going? Thanks for your comments on my song 'so sad' (yes, was inspired by Trump tweets). Love that album cover!
Hi Rob, thanks for your comments. I popped over to hear something from you but I see nothings here yet
Thanks for your comment on my latest. Looking forward to hearing songs of yours, hope you're working on it!
Thanks Rob. Always appreciate your listens/comments!
Hey, thanks for the nice comment! Yes, I am pushing her to sing. She says she has ideas, so it may come soon. Any idea when the exquisite corpse is coming my way? I'm a little nervous about that one. Never done one before.
Thank you for your warm comments Rob, Looking forward to hearing your beautiful songs.
Thanks a ton for listening Rob... It's always good hearing from you! 😀
Dankjewel Rob! Ik kwam op het idee het te gebruiken na een aflevering van Doctor Who waarin het programma waar je over schreef voorkwam. Het boek is zeker de moeite waard trouwens, ik heb er zelf ook veel te lang mee gewacht.
hoping you might make an 'appearance' this season. cheers!
Hey there Rob!! Always enjoy your music... Good to see you here! Whatever you put out, i am looking forward to. 😀
Hello Rob! Yes, I've gone 'stripped down' this year... just acoustic guitar and vocal (and lots of mistakes!), straight into a handheld recorder. Fragments, sketches, and some complete songs, that I may or may not work on after FAWM.
I hope you're well.
Looking forward to hearing your new songs.
Thanks for cluing me in to this process. I've never done one of these. This should be fun. Thanks!
Hi Rob, guess you're gestating like me this year... Hey, could you give me the magic words for how to embed photos in your bio? Looking forward to hearing some good PRIP this year! Thanks!
Oooh...I see Suzanne Vega on the shelf. Definitely one of my musical heroes. I saw that you are doing the exquisite corpse right before me. Just wondering how this works. Do you know?
Hi Rob! So you're back then? Good!
Good to see you're back. Hope you have a productive February.
Hey, dutch man! Looking forward to your songs!
Hey Rob! Good to have you here! Enjoy!
Robsie! Better get your gear ready for Fawm 2017! 😀
have a good month!
Nice setup Rob! I know this is gonna be good!
Hello Rob. I hope things are good with you. Looking forward!
Hey, Rob! Always enjoy your unique sound and can't wait to see what's coming from you this February!
Really looking forward to hearing more of your weird and bent pop tunes!!
