The Myrrors + Perilymph

The David Watts Foundation presents:

THE MYRRORS (Beyond Beyond Is Beyond, USA)

The Myrrors are a band from Tucson, Arizona that makes what they describe as « Sonoran Trance Music », a hypnotic stew of heavy drone and mountainside krautrock informed equally by pan-national psychedelia and experimental minimalism. The group was formed in 2007 by teenage multi-instrumentalists Nik Rayne and Grant Beyschau, and first gained international attention with their debut album Burning Circles in the Sky (featuring the underground hit « Warpainting »), before a four year hiatus saw the band restructure itself for a series of increasingly-ambitious and politically-minded LPs for cult labels like Cardinal Fuzz and Beyond Beyond is Beyond Records and a high-profile two-month European tour in 2015.

Their most recent album for BBiB, 2017’s Hasta La Victoria, sees the ever-fluctuating ensemble delving even deeper into the Terry Riley-meets-Amon Duul mantras hinted at on previous recordings, with tape loops, saxophones, woodwinds, and South Asian folk instruments taking equal billing to what might be described as your more typical rock-band instrumental lineup.

Urban Spree announces the launch of Winterspree

Spice up your Winter!

Urban Spree is proud to announce the launch of a limited edition hot winter drink that we have been secretly elaborating in the past months with our partner Ostmost and our artist friends! 

Ostmost is a Berlin-based drink company which is committed to reclaim Streuobstwiesen (german organic orchards). Ostmost aims to reintroduce apple biodiversity in Brandenburg and produces 100% BIO juices and soft drinks of the highest quality. In spring 2015, we partnered with Ostmost to plant old varieties of apple trees in our garden and contribute to the environment.

This first cooperation and common vision naturally led to the creation of Winterspree, our new winter drink.

Winterspree is elaborated with old varieties of certified BIO apples like Minister von Hammerstein and Geflammter Kardinal, an artisanal BIO vodka, and a dash of natural winter spices. Winterspree is served hot and will deliciously get you through the whole winter.

But Winterspree is also more than a drink. Faithful to the Urban Spree artistic DNA, we have invited 9 artists from our close circle of friends to design 9 unique bottle labels for Winterspree.

Our contributed artists for this first series are: Above, Andrea Wan, Ben Thé, Fresh Max, Low Bros, Johannes Mundinger, Rylsee, Toums, and Twoone.

Winterspree is based on artistic exchange, creativity and diversity.

Winterspree is a Limited Artist Edition, certified 100% BIO, 100% vegan, 100% Urban Spree!

So excited to have two of the most mind blowing bands of today’s music scene together in one place: If Circle, hailing from the remote small town of Pori, are no « cult band », the word will have to be re-defined: Formed in 1991 initially as a tribute act to the Britain’s Loop (hence the name), Circle is the most prolific and mysterious force of the Finnish avant-rock underground. Constantly reinventing themselves, weaving hypnotic mantras out of relentless krautrock beats, heavy riffs, arty noise, dark psychedelia, and soundtrack-like beauty. Hard, chilly repetition has served as the lone unifying theme throughout almost 25 years of experiments. As Circle and under various other monikers (such as Falcon, Pharaoh Overlord, Pharaoh Overlörd, Motospandex and many more) they have released a disorienting host of albums on numberless micro labels, constantly confusing their fans with hazardous stylistic changes and highly hallucinatory live shows.

Camera became notorious for their hit-and-run style live concerts in Berlin subway stations – often stopped by the police, the « krautrock guerilla » developed their trance-inducing trademark sound which is propelling the shimmering surfaces and the blunt drumbeats of Hallogallo-period Neu! into a dystopian future. Their new and second album « Remember I Was Carbon Oxide » was released by Hamburg’s Bureau B imprint to much critical acclaim at the end of last year.

Orsten Groom’s « CHROME DINETTE » series to be exhibited at Urban Spree

For their last exhibition of the year, Urban Spree Galerie invites the French painter Orsten Groom to exhibit in Berlin his new incendiary series “CHROME DINETTE”. The solo show, his first exhibition in Germany, will open on Friday, October 23rd, 2020.

While being a radically independent artist, Orsten Groom has established himself in a few years as a key player in the young French painting scene, oscillating between alternative circles and museum institutions.

His first retrospective was presented this year at the ACMCM contemporary art centre in Perpignan (France) – at only 37 years old.

The Berlin exhibition brings together over 30 works, presented in two sections:

– the Large Ensemble of 17 paintings “CHROME DINETTE” (accompanied by its proverbial Divan), a danse macabre summoning Sigmund Freud, Moses and sick poodles – under the aegis of Frank Zappa;

– A retrospective selection of Orsten Groom’s emblematic large formats, a genuine «subconscious» journey with Parietal Sarcophagus allures. 

Orsten Groom’s painting is presented as “Post-Historical Cave Art”.

The famous German artist Jonathan Meese said about him: “Orsten Groom comes from the caves and the Middle Ages and keeps history alive in today’s art. He comes from the future“.

Apocalyptic Frescoes, saturated with Creatures drawn from the Memory Styx by Demented Talmudic Investigations, Carnivalesque Recapitulation of History from the Flow of Origins and Art History – His Painting roars on Large Canvases populated with Figures entangled by Mythological and Grotesque Archetypes, Danses Macabres gleaned by a Language Detective, an Amnesiac Epileptic Archaeologist. Its Material is Dense, Volcanic, inhabited like the ancient Livers of a Divinatory Ritual.

«This turmoil is similar to the one I feel in the Grottos of Lascaux or Chauvet, in front of El Greco or Picasso paintings, or, in the 20th century, facing the essential work of Gérard Gasiorowski», writes Olivier Kaeppelin, former Director of the Fondation Maeght in Saint-Paul-de-Vence and curator of his recent Parisian Exhibition POMPEII MASTURBATOR.

Orsten Groom experienced in 2002 an aneurysm that left him amnesic and epileptic. He graduated from the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris in 2009 and Le Fresnoy in 2011. He is the recipient of several awards: Prix l’art est vivant (2019), Prix de Peinture de l’Académie des Beaux-Arts (2016) and Prix de Peinture Antoine Marin (2015). The reputed paint manufacturer Marin manufactures a colour to his name, the “Pink Groom”.

He is also a musician, author of collections of English cubist poems, filmmaker (2011 Jury Prize for his film BOBOK at the festival Côté-Court) and since 2012 author of the video cycle Les Ballets Russes.

He has collaborated with curators and authors Olivier Kaeppelin and Paul Ardenne, the filmmaker Guy Maddin, the translator and poet André Markowicz, as well as the writer Boris Wolowiec.

ORSTEN GROOM: “MÂÂT” (NOCTURNE) – 210 X 140 CM – OIL ON CANVAS – GXXI

The Opening of the exhibition will be accompanied by a concert by the POODLE MHUND ARKESTRA, formed for the occasion by Orsten Groom, the Magnificent Jimmy Trash & Big Daddy Mugglestone.

Ich bin der Dreck unter deinen Walzen / Ich bin dein geheimer Schmutz Und verlorenes Metallgeld / Ich bin deine Ritze und Schlitze / Ich bin der Autor aller Felgen Und Damast Paspeln / Ich bin Eier aller Arten / Ich bin alle Tage und Nächte / Ich bin der Chrome Dinette / Und du bist mein Sofa. – Frank Zappa

CHROME DINETTE is Burning Divan, Hypnotic Sphinx and Sick Tongue of the Unpronounceable God.
