Pre order ‘Alles is ijdelheid’
It’s no secret we’re a Dutch label. We’re very much internationally focused with Americans, Swedes, Canadians and even Icelandic people on our roster. But still – Dutch we are and we’re proud of it. Since we payed attention in school – or is it because we watch way too many American movies? – we’re able to communicate with ya’ll in this lovely English lingo but you’ll understand that amongst ourselves we break out the good old Dutch language. It’s not really fair though that it’s always us who have to adept when it comes to our means of communication. Why don’t you guys throw in a Dutch word or two every once and a while? Probably, because you can’t. So, it’s time for a little lesson in Dutch. In todays lesson we’ll start of with three simple words, and really, all you need to know for now.
Het Gloren (pronunciation; grab a small chicken bone and stick it way back in your throat. Did that? Good, that choking sound is what we need. Simply add ‘loren’ to that and you’re golden). Meaning: ‘dawn’, ‘soft rays’. As in: the dawn of the new day reveals a shitload of bears gathering in the middle of the pond. Weird shit!
Voorverkoop (pronunciation; just wing it, you’ll be good). Meaning: ‘pre sale’. As in:
Hey! We just started the pre sale of broeder Dielemans new beautiful album ‘Alles is ijdelheid’ which is coming out December first! Pre order this puppy today and we’ll ship it to you on November 23rd including an sweet and personal note by the broeder himself. We’re keeping that shit exclusive and personal, you know how we do!
Well folks, that just about wraps up today’s lesson. Keep practicing and don’t forget to buy our instruction CD or Vinyl titled ‘Alles is ijdelheid’ with nine beautiful dutch songs on ‘em. Peace!
