NEW MUSIC: Emika – Klavirni

Normally, I wouldn’t be drawn to a record with 13 acoustic piano tracks, all named Dilo. But I love Emika dearly and I actually liked her previous piano work a lot: the closer of Emika, Closing Credits always gets me with its dark intensity and her 2003 Klavirni EP with[…]

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[…]

NEW ALBUM: Disappears – Irreal

Disclaimer: Disappears’ 3rd full length album Pre Language is one of my all time favorite albums and I am a huge fan of Brian Case’s voice and style of singing. Same goes for Jonathan van Herik’s way of playing guitar. I’ve seen Disappears playing live twice so far and immensely loved the[…]

NEW ALBUM: Ghost Culture – Ghost Culture

There’s something fresh and exciting about listening to an artist’s debut album, comparable with the first taste of real champagne, swimming in the ocean or falling in love – for the very first time. The self-titled album Ghost Culture by the London artist James Greenwood aka Ghost Culture takes the[…]

FIRST LISTEN: Mr. Twin Sister – Mr. Twin Sister

Every year, after the top ten list is out of the door, I discover more music that should have been on there. Maybe. Anyway, it’s too late to change the list, but still time for writing about an album I love more with every listen. Twin Sister added the “Mr.”[…]

Support Artists & Music You Love: Buy Albums in Store or Online

Most of the times, I buy an album after a live show, directly from the artist. At other times, I enjoy browsing a store like Rough Trade New York, and occasionally, I order an album, especially when it comes with a limited offer like Korallreven’s newest album. On their Facebook page,[…]

FIRST LISTEN: Little Boots – Business Pleasure EP

Like FKA twigs English musician Victoria Hesketh goes to market under her nickname. She also writes and performs electronic music, but more on the danceable elctro-pop side. Her new EP Electronic Pleasure came out yesterday and caught my eye after seeing her name on the lineup for the Brooklyn Electronic[…]

FIRST LISTEN: September Girls – Veneer EP

September Girls, a five-piece from Dublin, was one of my discoveries of this year’s CMJ festival. They delivered a great performance and now they have backed it up with a new EP Veneer, the follup-up to their 2013 debut album Cursing the Sea. September Girls feature two main vocalists, backed[…]

NEW ALBUM: Firestations – Never Closer

Naturally, the closer we get to each year’s end, the less new album releases we see, which however can be regarded as an advantage for new and upcoming bands, like Firestations for example. The five piece hails from the UK, calling North East London their home, and has just released their[…]

FIRST LISTEN: iamamiwhoami – Blue

iamamiwhoami’s first album, Kin was among my favorites in 2012. I was then still under the spell of their stunning, mysterious video series, but, even though I still like the album, I had some sort of “they just cook with water” moment, when I listened to the music without the[…]
