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[…]

LIFE SOUNDTRACK: The Smashing Pumpkins – Adore

The Smashing Pumpkins are one of the most successful rock bands of the 90s, so it is odd that I discovered them only by the end of the decade. To be precise: Elke discovered them via the Depeche Mode tribute album For The Masses and then then went out 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[…]

NEW MUSIC: Adryelle – Rainbows

Adryelle plays a new song on a bunch of keyboards and a drum machine in what looks like her room in Baltimore. She has also an exceelent EP Waiting Room out at Bandcamp
