LIVE Staatseinde & Dada Pogrom
DJ:s Enfant Terrible & åtåmåtån

Staatseinde NL (ET) is a Dutch synth band stripped down through the years from a real band to a pure electronic set up. With this the sound also changed, the songs have become more up-tempo, louder, more beat orientated and also darker as before at times and for sure more dance floor minded.

Dada Pogrom IS (Kernkrach, ååå), a tech noire synth band, originated in Québec on the eve of the fall of the Berlin Wall. This eccentric Icelandic artist thrusts a genius contemporary take on an 80s minimal retro sound. Throbbing bass and gristly rhythm will accompany a litany of the shadow.

Gambri II

For the second time since Iceland was settled, the art festival GAMBRI will expand its domain to the city of Berlin.

The exhibition is named after the Icelandic “Gambri”, a concoction of yeast, sugar and water that is left in a barrel to ferment. The fermented liquid is Gambri, and after that is distilled, the outcome is Landi, the popular Icelandic homebrew spirit.

In much the same way, we intend to splash together different movements within Icelandic art into the cask that is Urban Spree Galerie, where the talents of the artists ferment into the cross-media super art festival that is GAMBRI II.

There are over 40 artists and acts of different kinds participating in GAMBRI II, the festival will consist of a tight program, with works including sculptures, music, performance art, design, tattoos, fine arts and street art.

The event culminates during the Opening Weekend (14-17 June 2019) to coincide with the Icelandic National Day on the 17th.

Fufanu + Indriði

Named ‘Iceland’s most exciting young band’ by Pitchfork after the release of their celebrated sophomore LP Sports last year, enigmatic trio Fufanu have announced the release of a series of EPs – each one an exercise in exploring their multiple sonic personalities, from motorik and post-punk to alt-techno, to woozy avant-garde electronica.

Indriði first rose into public awareness through his guitar playing with Icelandic punk-hardcore kings Muck. He has also has collaborated with heavyweights Jófríður Ákadóttir (JFDR, Samaris, Pascal Pinon), Úlfur Hansson and Ragnar Kjartansson, and is a gifted and highly qualified visual artist. Under his guise as solo musician, his songwriting occupies sparse, tactile and magical territory, beginning this new path with his 2016 solo debut “Makril”, and traversing it further with 2018’s “ding ding”.

Kælan Mikla + Some Ember live

[aufnahme + wiedergabe] presents:

Kælan Mikla live
[ISL, Artoffact Records / Fabrika Rec]
www.kaelanmikla.bandcamp.com 

Icelandic post-punk meets death-synth trio Kælan Mikla returns for the group’s third album, Nótt Eftir Nótt.

Topping a year that catapulted the band onto stages shared with the likes of The Cure and Placebo, Nótt Eftir Nótt is Kælan Mikla at their most confident, and their most deadly. It’s been five years since Margrét Rósa Dóru-Harrysdóttir, Laufey Soffia, and Sólveig Matthildur Kristjánsdóttir formed the band in Reykjavik, but after several tours and high-profiles stages, as well as two critically-acclaimed albums, Kælan Mikla has brought their A-game in a big way.

Starting off quietly with a creepy, gothed-out ethereal intro, Nótt Eftir Nótt erupts with post-punk brilliance and synthlines that harken back to the bad old days of the Batcave, big hair, and Egyptian-inspired eye-liner. Tracks like the melancholy “Hvernig kemst ég upp?” are wonderfully delightful, while the band goes for the big goth dance number on “Skuggadans,” succeeding with glorious ease. Near the end of Nótt Eftir Nótt, when you’ve already ingested a healthy dose of Diamanda Galas meets The Birthday Party, the title track, produced by popular Icelandic electronic wizard Bang Gang, is basically perfect.

Hot on the heels of shows at Roadburn, Meltdown, and The Cure’s 40th Anniversary, as well as a Fall tour supporting King Dude, Kælan Mikla are set to take their place as one of darkest aural poets on the world stage.

Some Ember live
[US, Third Coming Records]
www.someember.bandcamp.com 

SUBMERGING THE SUN, the second LP by Some Ember, is a journal of climatological grief, intimate vulnerability, and transcendental sadness. Self-produced by songwriter Dylan Travis, the record’s sparse arrangements are weighted by bleak ambience and dramatic vocal turns. Icy synthesizers pierce veils of fog-like drones, delivering sorrow and catharsis. Tides of dissonance ebb to reveal glittering mirages of hope, which are just as soon swept away.

Long a fixture of the Oakland, CA musical underground, Some Ember has seen many forms – a solo dream pop bedroom project, a four-piece goth rock outfit, then a hardware-based synth duo, and now a solo performance project once more. Following cassettes on Crash Symbols, Night-People and Ascetic House, the band released their first LP on Dream in 2014. In 2015, Travis and longtime collaborator Nina Chase made the move to Berlin. After a tumultuous two years (which saw a further cassette released on Dream, “DEBTS OF LOVE”), the band will release SUBMERGING THE SUN, as well as a companion cassette EP, SUBMERGED, on Third Coming Records in November 2018.
