Dark Room is the first EP of TelePathiQ, the electronic music project of Darrick Riggs. The first two tracks are slow-burning, built on top of heavy, complex beats and dark synth drones and feature two different vocalists (or the same one through different effects). The last track is an instrumental[…]
Although there are currently not more than two songs available online, including several re-mixes, these two songs are enough to make me want more! With Hold Me Down and Second Night, Mansionair from Sydney, Australia will come state side to play this year’s South By South West festival – and along the way most[…]
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[…]
There’s a special vibe in the air that Friday evening close to 9 o’ clock at Brooklyn’s Union Pool, a pretty popular hangout and pick-up spot especially in the Summer time with its spacious backyard, romantic lighting, outdoors bar and taco truck (not necessarily in that order). Among the usual weekend crowd were music[…]
Bandit is a three piece from Nashville, fronted by singer and guitarist Angela Plate. Losing in a Sense is a slow-burning track guided by heavy guitars and I can hear quite a bit Fools-era Warpaint in it.
This year I want to have a closer watch at what’s going on musically Germany. I’ve already mentioned DENA a few weeks ago. She’s originally from Bulgaria, but lives in Berlin and brings somehow a German angle to pop music. Her new song Another Love is catchy and I’m looking[…]
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[…]
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.
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[…]
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[…]
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[…]
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[…]
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.”[…]
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,[…]
