1. Bart Constant’s real name is not really Bart at all, it’s Rutger Hoedemaekers… so you can see why he changed it for his musical endeavours.  He’s from Amsterdam, whilst often based in Berlin, but sings with a very Americanised accent.  In fact, Tell Yourself Whatever You Have To, his second album, reminds me very much of Death Cab for Cutie in delivery and also construction of baroque but consumable pop songs.  It came out a few months back but is quite a fun discovery from 2012 that might help to make Rutger Hoedemaekers more of a household name…. well, Bart Constant perhaps.
