ALBUM REVIEW: Ibeyi – Ibeyi

The first I heard of Ibeyi was their third single Mama Says, a beautiful, but heartbreaking song about the passing of their father at 45 and their mother’s reaction to it. “It pisses me off, it drives me mad / That she let’s herself feel so bad” sings Lisa-Kainde Diaz.[…]

NEW ALBUM: Man Without Country – Maximum Entropy

Behind the somewhat confusing name Man Without Country is a musician duo, comprised of Ryan James and Tomas Greenhalf, with live show support from Mike Monaghan on drums/percussions. They’re hailing from South Wales and seem to like their country in the country of Great Britain – despite their band name. Without having known anything[…]

FIRST LISTEN: Nite Fields – Depersonalization

Nite Fields is surly an apt name for this Australian band of four. The music is dark and I can hear 80s gloom rock staples Joy Division, The Cure and The Chameleons in it. Most songs center around a melodic guitar line and Danny Venzin’s deep voice. My favorite songs[…]

NEW ALBUM: The Sidekicks – Runners In The Nerved World

This might very well be the album I’ve listened to the most in this still very young year of 2015. Hailing from Columbus, OH, The Sidekicks have released an immediately appealing new album with Runners In The Nerved World. The music is mainly upbeat, the songs are catchy and there’s a lot[…]

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,[…]
