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[…]

New Album: Pale Honey – Pale Honey

Sometimes there’s an album that sounds familiar from the first second on – even if it’s a debut from newcomers like the Swedish duo Pale Honey. I just feel at home with Tuva Lodmark’s vocals, which I could listen to for hours, the sparse, melodic guitar lines and some subtle[…]

PHOTOS: Dead Leaf Echo live at Alphaville

Having seen Dead Leaf Echo not even two months ago at this year’s South By Southwest festival, playing old favorites but also some of their exciting new material, I was especially intrigued to see them at a Brooklyn venue, that I didn’t know yet. Last Friday, they played together with The Midnight Hollow, Tiers[…]

Song Picks of the Week

Hazey by Glass Animals is just perfect for a Monday afternoon on the brink of a thunderstorm. It’s a chill and lush song, with a tropical feel to it and our Song Pick of Monday. Meg Remy aka U.S. Girls goes to D.C. for her video Damn The Valley. Not[…]

3 Is A Band: Little May

Little May are a three piece band from Sydney, Australia comprised of Liz Drummond (vocals, rhythm guitar), Hannah Field (vocals) and Annie Hamilton (lead guitar, vocals).  What immediately got my attention, when listening to Little May was how much they remind me of Warpaint, the Californian all-female band with members hailing from[…]

THROWBACK: Heaven 17 – The Luxury Gap

In my opinion, The Luxury Gap by Heaven 17 is one of the best albums if the 80s. It’s not timeless, it’s clearly rooted in the decade, but it one hooky track after the other, hitting exactly the sweet spot between accessible and experimental. That makes it a great listen[…]

NEW ALBUM: Emika – Drei

Once you start counting your albums, it is probably difficult to stop – although Emika may run out of languages for her next release: Drei is German for three and consistent with her chosen home of Berlin, Germany. Consistent is also the music on it, in a good way. She[…]


I saw TORRES live not even two months ago, and it was kind of a resounding experience. I didn’t know what to expect, but certainly not to be absolutely blown away at 1:00 AM -and counting- in a presbyterian church in Austin, TX. Mackenzie Scott, who chose to go by the artist[…]

All twelve songs on Highspeeds are fine, often ethereal, electro-pop held together by Elliot Moss’ unique voice. Listen for yourself,[…]
