NEW TRACK: Dena – Another Love

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[…]

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[…]

Life Soundtrack: Sisters of Mercy – Vision Thing

The year 2015 is still young and the holidays, together with what they’ve brought us, are still lingering around. Almost 25 years ago, Christmas 1990, I received my first CD player and with it one CD. My back then boyfriend surprised me with this special gift. While I no longer[…]

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[…]

LIFE SOUNDTRACK: Depeche Mode

When I was thinking about which Depeche Mode album to chose for a life soundtrack post, I realized that some eight albums of theirs played a role in different phases of my life. And since it’s New Year’s Day, this is about all of them. Construction Time Again was their[…]

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,[…]
