SONG PICK: Hēran Soun – Barricade

Even without knowing anything about the background of Hēran Soun about his childhood, how he grew up, I would be utterly fascinated by “Barricade”, the single he released today. I am ready to admit though, that when reading up on the California-based experimental indie-electronic musician, I was intrigued of course[…]

PHOTOS: Henry Jamison live at Rough Trade

Sometimes it is possible to catch the same artist at two very different occasions and locations, which can particularly highlight great songwriting and musicianship.

SONG PREMIERE: Eulene – Megalomaniac

Born and raised in New York City and now based in Nashville, electro-pop artist Eulene hits the scene with the magnificent “Megalomaniac”, ahead of the release of her self-titled EP out on June 7.

SONG PICK: Jess Clinton – The Runaway

“The Runaway” is a gritty rock song about the impulse to leave everything behind and run. From a New York perspective this often leads to a move to the West Coast in the hope for an easier and more comfortable life. Singer/Songwriter Jess Clinton did it the other way around[…]


When I played the beautifully wistful “Our Place” to Oliver, he immediately remarked that Kim Wilde comes to mind and we also agreed on totally digging the track. While New York-based singer/songwriter LYYN might remind some of us vocally of the 80s pop star, LYYN is very much involved in[…]
