NEW ALBUM: Zhala – Zhala

I’m In Love was my unofficial favorite song of last year: I just love how it builds, very much like the titular feeling, with anticipation, anxiety and joy until it fades out in uncertainty. After this song opening, Zhala’s debut album it is a challenge to hold that level. On[…]

Song Picks of the Week

Monday’s Song Pick is written in Nashville, but it’s everything but Nashville music. OOFJ does eerie, cinematic music. The entire album is great, but not an easy listen. With our Song Pick of Tuesday we’re leaving the country and are heading Far East… to Singapore with Ctrl by Riot !n[…]

PHOTOS: Future Thieves // Kink Ador live at 3rd and Lindsley (Nashville)

Last Sunday, during our fantastic weekend trip to Nasvhille, I had the great joy of seeing not just one but two alt rock bands who call Music City home, and proof that there’s more than folk and country to this place. The fairly spacious gastro music venue 3rd and Lindsley was nicely visited[…]

LIFE SOUNDTRACK: Poesie Noire – Verge of Tears

I didn’t know anything about Poesie Noire when I bought this record in 80s – I was just on the hunt for alternative electronic music, which mostly meant to browse a bin in the back of the records store. Maybe I realized at that time that they were from Belgium,[…]


OLYA is a singer/songwriter from Brooklyn, NY who had previously released an EP with the support of a guitar-driven six piece band. For her new EP, Utopia however, she plays almost all her music herself on her computer with only a few acoustic instruments mixed in. Looking for comparisons, Utopia[…]

Song Picks of the Week

Are you all about BBQ right now, or do your bones scream partyyyyy?! Here’s an upbeat, fresh party song for you by The Hundred Days, our Song Pick of Monday. “Take Me Home Where I Belong” sings AURORA in “Runaway” and presumably she means with that the beautiful, but chilly[…]

3 Is A Band: Kink Ador

When looking through Nasville’s event calendar, who would be playing the last weekend in May, I at first didn’t see any band that would sound appealing. Granted, I would not have been opposed to some honest country music, yet I definitely wanted to see some local musicians, some who do not[…]

TORRES mesmerizes at Baby’s All Right

Living in New York City, going to a live show once if not twice a week, I am rarely star struck. While I am always looking forward to the concert I am going to attend and the musicians I’ll be seeing live, I do not anticipate a show as much as[…]

PHOTOS: Empires live at Pianos

Empires, who are currently touring together with Geographer, also made a stop in New York to perform songs from their most recent album Orphan, released in September 2014. When I heard about their show at Music Hall of Williamsburg (May 21st), I was about to buy tickets when I learned that they’d also play[…]

Song Picks of the Week

Oh… this voice! The whole new album Lodge by Lone Wolf is beautifully flowing and simply amazing yet I’m especially smitten with Alligator. Listen to our Song Pick of Monday. ‪ For more info about Lone Wolf aka Paul Marshall, read his bio and the process for creating this album:[…]

FKA twigs presents Congregata at The Brooklyn Hangar

Sunday night we ventured to Sunset Park to see a special performance by FKA twigs as part of the Red Bull Music Academy series. The place, Brooklyn Hangar is a large warehouse, normally used as a sound stage, outfitted for a three night, sold out series, where Red Bull gave[…]

LIFE SOUNDTRACK: Icehouse – Primitive Man

I am undoubtedly firmly rooted in 80s music, mainly British 80s music, with stating U2, Tears for Fears or Depeche Mode as my favorite bands back then and today still. While I’ve seen those three live, each of them even several times at smaller and at bigger venues, like Olympiahalle in Munich[…]
