I’m so overly excited about Blonde Redhead’s forthcoming album Barragán. Their latest single The One I Love is just fantastic (so was the first track to be released No More Honey) and it takes me straight back to obsession of this fantastic band. The album was recorded with a lot of old analogue synthesizers and [...]

Cuts In The Middle

Now that the Internets have survived this and Sir William Benjamin Bensussen aka The Gaslamp Killer has recovered just fine from his insane scooter accident – it’s been a year, and see above -, he’s going to go crazy (as usual) at Berlin’s Gretchen tomorrow night. Wicked!


Three years after the tsunami in northeastern Japan and the damage to the nuclear reactor in Fukushima, many people, including a growing number of artists, have got beyond the agony and speechlessness that set in after the disaster. They are starting to recognize that the catastrophe uncovered many hitherto undisclosed rifts within Japanese society, and [...]


Tomorrows absolute highlight: The concert of the singer-songwriter Alin Coen and her band at Huxleys in Berlin! With her catching songs about love and failure, she plays straight into your heart. Some of my favorite songs are A No Is a No and Kein Weg zurück. The Berlin concert is already sold out, but there [...]

We are not sure what happens after this [...]

Live At The House

Amazingness: Brooklyn’s Grizzly Bear wrapped up their 115 show world tour at the Sydney Opera House three days ago — and we’ve been watching the full 2-hour set (available only for a couple of weeks apparently) about sixteen times since it went live.


Another beautiful poster for a another great opportunity to see The Pastels live, after their latest LP ‘Slow Summits’ was in heavy rotation this summer. This time as support of the German electro-pop quartet Lali Puna.
In order to get attuned, with the perfect autumn soundtrack…

While the craft of classical music courts notoriety for its mathematical complexity, its interpreters often express themselves in literary rambunctiousness and visual cues, relishing in matching timbres with colors, flourishing upon movements hippos and dancing flora a la Fantasia.  Floating above the soup of sentiments, Jorinde Voigt charts soundscapes according to an invented emotional notation, you [...]
