Brooklyn’s Dead Leaf Echo is an music/art collective that released their debut LP “Thought and Language” in 2013.

Autist
www.autist.tv

AUTIST is a 3 piece live electronic band from Berlin that borders on a mix of psych, grunge, dance and punk. Formed in 2014, it consists of former members of the electro-punk band Aniaetleprogrammeur (2005-2013) and drummer Christopher Chartrand (Crystal Castles, Cauldron).

VV & The Void
www.facebook.com/vvandthevoid

Often described as ethereal, gothic, minimal-drone, noir, and dark wave, VV & the Void’s music is the singular celebration of earthly and lucid dichotomy of grace and disproportion, the feminine and the masculine, the moon and the sun, birth and death, and the war of consciousness from the perspective of unconsciousness.

Siglo XX live in Berlin (Farewell Show)

 

[aufnahme + wiedergabe] presents:

Siglo XX (BE) live
– for the first time in Berlin since over 30 years and for the last time ever –

DJS:

a.e.schatten (coinciDANSES / Bremen)
Jürgen Jakob (Cold Beat Berlin)
robertianjim (The Red Room / Hamburg)

“40 years ago punk was taking Belgium by storm. Just about anyone could grab an instrument and start pounding away on it. And that’s exactly what we did in our neighbourhood in Genk with Siglo XX, which is the name of a mine in Bolivia by the way, but we chose it mainly because we thought the Xs were so cool. We kept on doing this for 13 years: making music, over and over again, different every time, but always true to ourselves, stubborn, defying trends and great expectations. We recorded albums that sold internationally and we toured Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Switzerland, Germany, Austria and Hungary. For some reason we struck a chord with a broader audience and they kept on following us through the years – and still do – and they’ve been joined by a younger crowd that is catching on to us through the Internet. Because 40 is quite a respectable age, Onderstroom Records is re-releasing the first three Siglo XX 12-inches, remastered but with the original artwork. These records, which have become collector’s items over the years, will be available separately and in a boxed edition.”

obnoxious ouroboros presents

⊙ BIG ‡ BRAVE ⊙
Southern Lord Records
In existence since 2012 with members Robin Wattie, Mathieu Ball and Louis-Alexandre Beauregard spread across two guitars and drums respectively, BIG|BRAVE sound many magnitudes bigger than one would suspect a trio is capable of. Anticipation gracefully helps to build up every salvo launched by the band, assaulting the eardrum with incredible precision. Their compositions increasingly more refined, juxtaposing sparse minimalism with thunderous feedback, BIG|BRAVE strives to continue pushing the limits of what heavy experimental rock can sound like while maintaining a strong interest in reaching bliss.
Somewhere between the margins of a minimal rock band, experimental outfit and drone aficionados, BIG|BRAVE strives to never belong to anyone given classification. Utilising standard “band” tools such vocals, electric guitars, drums, feedback and amplifiers, B|B explores the possibilities of what a band can sound like while constantly resisting and deconstructing the archetypal characterisations of song structure and form.
Building spectacular, inverted rock constructions that sound many magnitudes bigger than one would suspect a trio was capable of, Montreal’s BIG|BRAVE has been in existence since 2012, with members spread across two guitars and drums respectively. Unhurried and untouchable, BIG|BRAVEpossess that same valued independent spirit which pervades their local contemporaries, and is at the root of their intense and exploratory musical offerings. Their sound lulls and lurches between passages of rhythmic noise pollution and vocal led awe, using considered juxtapositions of force and restraint to warp the senses. Remarkably quiet at times, their ambiance is not one of minimalism, but of dawning, foreboding power with the need to be vented, and when the hot flushes of blighted percussion and monochromatic guitar scrapes arrive, they arrive with triumphant force.

⊙ MY DISCO ⊙
Temporary Residence / Downwards Records
MY DISCO is an Australian music group that was formed between long term 2018 collaborators, Rohan Rebeiro, Benjamin Andrews, and Liam Andrews in 2003.
In 2003, MY DISCO performed their first shows in unconventional all-ages venues in Melbourne.
Late 2003 saw the release of their debut 7″ and marked their first Australian tour. The band soon became renowned for their arduous tour ethic, demonstrated in extensive tours to often far to reach destinations that included remote areas of Australia, Southeast Asia and Mexico.
The release of their debut album ‘Cancer’ in late 2006 marked a new level of emphasis on minimalism. More international and national tours were undertaken, including additional tours to the United States, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
Their second album ‘Paradise’ was recorded in Chicago, Illinois in 2007 with Steve Albini at his studio Electrical Audio. The album is noted as the band’s most refined and minimalist release, capturing their stentorian live sound, with several songs consisting of one note, repetitive single-sentence vocals and long- sustained guitar chords. Drum patterns, although minimal, still offer dance-like, disjointed beats.
2010 saw the release of a new single called “Young”, a limited edition 12″ released through Mistletone Records and re-issue through Blast First Petite, as a lead up to their third and forthcoming album.
2010 Saw the release of the band’s third and most diverse album, ‘Little Joy.’ Their first signing to NYC acclaimed label, Temporary Residence Limited.
2012 MY DISCO released another limited 12″, this time World Wide through Temporary Residence Ltd, entitled “Wrapped Coast.” The record features two extensive racks, with remixes by London’s Factory Floor, and Birmingham based noise-maker Justin Broadrick.
On International Record Store Day in 2013, the band put out a single on one of the World’s most acclaimed independent labels, Sub Pop records. It featured as the label’s 1000th release.
2014/15 saw the band put the finishing touches on their fourth studio album, entitled “Severe” and once again working with Producer and friend Cornel Wilzcek at Electric Dreams Studios in South Melbourne.

⊙ NONN ⊙
Fuzz Club Records
The debut from NONN was a stark collection of minimalistic post-punk that marked him as one of the most exciting outputs in the dark Scandinavian scene. After touring the record across Europe and recruiting a full band, the project is back with its second album, XVII, due for release December 7th on Fuzz Club.
Now more of a collaborative effort, with Hannes Nyling and Christian’s brother Alexander joining the fold, the new record deals in a fuller more refined sound and packs a far heftier punch. Where the self-titled debut was a restrained, minimalist affair, XVII opts for slabs of industrial electronics and hard-hitting percussion. The gloomy 80s sensibilities are still there – see the occasional Cure-esque guitars and morose gothic vocals – but on XVII, NONN turn their eyes more towards the electronic affliction of EBM and synth-punk than the polished, more-digestible post-punk that came reverberating out of the decade.
This shift in the band’s sound all boils down to having to reinvent the songs when taking them on the road following the release of their debut, which saw them tour the UK and mainland Europe and play at a number of festivals; from Liverpool Psych Fest and Fuzz Club Eindhoven to, more recently, Endless Daze in South Africa. “Since the last record we’ve been doing a lot of shows which gave us a lot of inspiration. We reworked the old songs to sound a bit fuller and more fun to play live. Having to reinvent all the sounds and instruments from the first album really inspired the direction on XVII,” Christian remarks.
It’s clear that taking the project on the road with a full-band has had a notable effect. Tracks like ‘Clear’, ‘Home’ and ‘Beyond’ see NONN shift their bleak, darkwave-inflected post-punk into something far richer. It’s still got that minimalistic feel and the ear-worm melodies are still there, but it’s more sinister and fleshed out. Though, what truly sets this album apart from the debut is where the band have delved deeper into their electronic side. The industrial stomp of album-opener ‘Pray’ declares the LP’s merciless intent without a guitar in sight; it’s a destructive cut of throbbing synths and desolate drum machine, underpinned by Christian’s monotonous vocals. Partner that with the sparse, haunting electronics of ‘Believe’ and the mechanical synth-punk of ‘Hide’ and it’s clear that NONN are at their best when truly embracing their deeply-cherished Moog Sub Phatty, using it to exorcise the many demons lurking beneath the noise.

Basement Bash Vol. XIX & TDWF- Headliner: The Molochs

 

Basement Bash and The David Watts Foundation are proud to announce that they will be joining forces for this special edition of your favorite Berlin concert series, with a kick-ass line-up!

THE MOLOCHS (USA)

It’s not a surprise to see that the Molochs are on the same label that brought the world the Allah-Las. Like their fellow Los Angelenos, the Molochs are in thrall to that point in the mid-60s where beat groups, garage bands and psychedelic outfits began to merge into each other. There’s a drowsiness about their music – they tend towards the mid-tempo, Lucas Fitzsimons drawls his vocals, and the guitars jangle more than growl – that means they don’t quite tip over into Pebbles/Nuggets territory. Which means they can’t just get by on sneers and snarls; they need melodies, too. And when they hit the sweet spot, they’re a treat: Charlie’s Lips, powered by none-more-Shindig! organ, is terrific; The One I Love sounds like a lost demo from the Leaves; No More Cryin’ ups the energy, crossing over into early Stones-styled R&B. Genre fans will love it – it’s the perfect soundtrack to pulling on your Chelsea boots and black crew-neck sweater.

THREE MARIAS (DE)

Previously and briefly known as Thee Dropp, Three Marias is a trio (you guessed right) of expats based in Berlin. Stranded on the Spree shores while sailing from their homelands with the winds of change at their backs, the three boys – yes, boys – bonded through their common inspiration from the sound of 60s garage and surf rock, as well as the fuzzy growls of today’s wave of neo-psychedelic rock. Through reverb-drenched chords and dissonant, roaring riffs, Three Marias will take you on board in their cruise amongst punchy irony and dreamy melancholia.

PALM SQUIRREL (DE)

Palm Squirrel are a Berlin-based noise rock trio formed by Mathew Johnson, Paul Laburre and Jason Gold. Their debut EP is coming out on Baby Satan Records.
