3 Is A Band: Highly Suspect

January… not only the beginning of a new year, but also pretty much about time to get familiar with the bands who will be playing this year’s South By South West music festival in Austin, Texas which after all is only a mere 10 weeks away from today! And while listening[…]

NEW MUSIC: Låpsley

Låpsley is from Liverpool, 18 years old and signed to XL Recordings. Falling Short is a good song that maybe fits a little to well into what is currently hip in electronic pop music. Låpsley just released her EP The Understudy.

Excited about 2015

The music world 2014 ended with a heated discussion about the business model of the future and if the meager payouts by streaming services have the potential to kill music by new artists. On the other hand, one only has to go to SXSW or CMJ to see how much[…]

3 Is A Band: Depeche Mode

The first show I’ve attend this year, was by the US band Feathers playing Mercury Lounge, the night when the polar vortex occurred. Only a few days AFTER that show, Feathers were touring Europe, opening for Depeche Mode (more info on The Delta Machine Tour here). And so it is more than fitting to[…]

Three Top Songs of 2014

The following songs are not to be found on our Top 10 lists published earlier (Oliver’s 10 to 6 & 5 to 1 and Elke’s 10 to 6 & 5 to 1) because we either didn’t like the whole album enough to put it into our Top 10 or the song[…]

VIDEO OF THE YEAR: Kiesza – Hideaway

This video is just a lot of fun, especially for us, who have passed this passed this street corner dozens of times. Kiesza is from Canada, but she chose to film this clip on N 12th and Kent in Williamsburg, which is very close to Output and a some of[…]

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.”[…]

3 Is A Band: Muse

In the Summer of 1999, still living in Munich, Germany and not thinking (yet) of moving anywhere else, I’ve attended the Southside Festival where on Day 1 Massive Attack and on Day 2 Marilyn Manson were headlining. Also on Day 1, a back then still fairly unknown band from the UK played,[…]

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,[…]

Music for the Ocean: Asura – Life^2

We’ll spend a lot of time at sea over the holidays, so I was thinking about music with a nautical theme. Turns out, there’s nothing among my favorites. So I chose a record which I find ideal for looking at the ocean: Asura’s Life^2, released in 2007. Asura is a[…]

3 Is A Band: Fun Lovin’ Criminals

This article in the 3IsABand series could be as well in the Live Soundtrack series, since it’s quite the “Throwback Thursday”, given the fact that the band’s first studio album came out in 1996. I picked the CD up at the Times Square Virgin Mega Store on my trip to[…]

PHOTOS: MOTHXR live at Pianos

The shows I usually go to, hold a nice balance between female and male audience. Granted, there are  shows that  appeal more to one or the other but usually it’s somewhat evened out. Not totally to my surprise, this was quite different on Wednesday at Pianos. The 160 people venue was[…]

2014 Top 5 to 1: Elke’s Choice

5. The Kooks – Listen Everybody remembers Ooh La from The Kook’s debut album Inside In/Inside Out, no?! Well, I do and I truly loved this album and awaited the follow-up eagerly. Sadly, I didn’t really like it. Even worse with The Kook’s third effort. So, when Listen, their fourth studio[…]

2014 Top 5 to 1: Oliver’s Choice

5. Banks – Goddess Banks did everything right with this album: she took very personal and intmate songs, which she reportedly wrote in her bedroom on a toy keyboard and enlisted help to wrap them into gorgeous tracks that fit perfectly into the musical trends of 2014. While this is[…]
