FIRST LISTEN: Until The Ribbon Breaks – A Lesson Unlearnt

When we saw Until The Ribbon Breaks last year in Austin on our way to see a different band. I remember, I liked them, but I was more concerned with freezing on the open deck of Maggie Mae’s and the deadly accident that happened close by that night. Now they[…]


It’s all about Bjork this week: after her album “leaked” she descided to just put it out on iTunes, weeks ahead of the official release. Why not? Pitchfork also published a stunning interview with her. For me it was an eye-opener. Of her, I had in my mind the picture[…]

3 Is A Band: Lazyeyes

There’s nothing idle about Lazyeyes‘ upcoming months: they seem determined to make 2015 their year! Having been founded in the Summer of 2012, and having released their first EP only a couple of months later in January 2013, the three piece from Brooklyn just released their second EP titled New Year.[…]

LIFE SOUNDTRACK: Sneaker Pimps – Bloodsport

2002 was a tough year for us: New York City was still reeling from 9/11, the economy was depressed and we had difficulties to find jobs. And, to make this all very visible, an official drought caused all fountains of the city to be shut down. My soundtrack for in[…]

NEW ALBUM: Disappears – Irreal

Dark Room is the first EP of TelePathiQ, the electronic music project of Darrick Riggs.

The last track is an instrumental[…]

VIDEO OF THE WEEK: Ibeyi – Ghosts

Ibeyi are twin sisters from Cuba who do a very special kind of music out of piano and percussion. The video is black and white and minimalistic and gorgeous.

MUSIC BUZZ: Björk // Little Dragon // Teenage Rockstars // More

Björk announces her new album Vulnicura and an accompanying tour with stops at Carnegie Hall and City Center in NYC. Then there is a retrospective of her work at MoMA. All this points to a rather high concept, artistic piece of new music like her previous album Biophilia. The inclusion[…]

3 Is A Band: Mansionair

Although there are currently not more than two songs available online, including several re-mixes, these two songs are enough to make me want more! With Hold Me Down and Second Night, Mansionair from Sydney, Australia will come state side to play this year’s South By South West festival – and along the way most[…]
