NEW MUSIC: Secret Admirer – Pale Shelter

Secret Admirer is a self-described Black Metal formation from Montgomery, Alabama comprised of Heinali Finney, Matt Finney and Andrew Helsinski. Pale Shelter is certainly not typical for the metal genre as I know it. There’s a massive wall of ambient noise with drums buried under it and a narrator who[…]

3 Is A Band: Go!Zilla – Sinking In Your Sea

Go!Zilla are an exciting three piece from Florence, Italy comprised of Luca Landi (vocals, guitar), Fabio Ricciolo (drums, vocals) and Mattia Biagiotti (vocals, guitar). Upon reading the line-up respectively the instrumentation, it becomes clear that Go!Zilla are forgoing the classic punk three piece set-up with guitar, bass and drums, but play with two guitars[…]

NEW ALBUM: Hannah Cohen

I really like this album. The opener Keepsake sucks me right in and then it goes on for seven more songs, full of melancholy and rich electronic textures. Hannah Cohen is a singer/songwriter from New York via San Francisco. Pleasure Boy is her second album and out now on Bella[…]

NEW ALBUM: Waterstrider – Nowhere Now

Waterstrider is a five piece band from Oakland, California, having released their debut album Nowhere Now early April 2015, yet published a few tracks from it already last year and just fueled the anticipation for the entire album! When I heard the album’s title song somewhen in 2014, I loved it from[…]

PHOTOS: Avers live at Darwin’s Pub, SXSW 2015

Avers are a pretty interesting band from Richmond, VA (more or less from that area) and especially interesting is the fact that all six band members who form Avers, found each other despite also (successfully) playing in other bands. In Avers, they are also not bound to one specific instrument or[…]

VIDEO OF THE WEEK: Emika – My Heart Bleeds Melody

Emika’s third or forth album Drei, depending on how you want to count, is due on May 5th and now she released the first song My Heart Bleeds Melody, accompanied by a video she shot on her iPhone in Madeira. While open sky, sunshine and the ocean are not typical[…]

Song Picks of the Week

Sea lions are lovely animals and deserve a song and London singer Py did a particularly good one with this funky track. Song Pick of Monday! Excited about the debut album of Waterstrider and from this album comes our Song Pick of Tuesday – a track that got me a[…]

PHOTOS: Young Ejecta live at The Main II, SXSW 2015

I saw Young Ejecta first unexpectedly last year opening for Gazelle Twin. Back then, singer Leanne Macomber was accompanied by Joel Ford, who was playing the music, but for SXSW she was traveling light and alone: a smart choice given the special circumstances of the festival. Young Ejecta is doing[…]

THROWBACK: Anarchic System – Popcorn

Let’s go back way into the 70s. When listened to Doldrum’s new album, the track Loop reminded me on a song that I remember from way back. It took me a while to figure it out: the track’s name was Popcorn, an iconic electronic instrumental released in 1972. The French[…]

FIRST LISTEN: Moon King – Secret Life

Moon King is the duo of Daniel Benjamin and Maddy Wilde (not to be confused with West Coast psych band Moon Duo). That is pretty much all I knew, when I put on their new album Secret Life. The album opener Roswell sets the mood right and hits you hard[…]

First Listen: Arca – Xen

Last year, when FKA twigs broke out of obscurity with her EP1, no publication missed to mention that Kanye West contributor Arca provided and often it was more than just hinted that he was the genius behind twigs’ sound. Now, after twigs has proven that her vision is not dependent[…]
