Painted near the back garden of Urban Spree in the Astra/Suicide Club passageway, and most likely to be seen by partygoers getting out from Suicide Circus in the early morning hours, ‘Hangover’s Hot Summer Nights’ is a collaborative piece between Look (Peachbeach/The Weird) and the Low Bros realized in June 2013.
The other half of Peachbeach, Vidam, was in the meantime sketching his piece with Rylsee, a mural that was painted in the next few days in the Urban Spree Artist Wall (covered here).

Weird Owl could be described more as a magical coterie than as a band. This alchemic union exists since 10 years and began in Brooklyn. The music is something between Psychedelic and Stoner rock. The new album “Healing” has more fuzzy guitars than ever and there are elements of the 60s and 70s. Anton Newcombe, singer of the legendary Brian Jonestown Massacre, says about Weird Owl: “Their formula is harmony and simplicity, their sound is the perfect geometry. There is a breeze of beauty over all.” “Healing” isn’t that melancholic like their last album. It’s more a view into heaven, which is not the limit at this point.
HA HA TONKA
Ha Ha Tonka is a rock music band from Springfield, Missouri, founded in 2005. Their music is characterized by local influences like Southern Rock, Folk and Bluegrass. They arouse the unlimited enthusiasm of Indie-Rock Fans. The new album ‘Lessons’ is about bittersweet lessons of everybodies and especially artists life.

Martial Canterel live
[US, Dais Records / Wierd Records]
Martial Canterel’s Sean McBride is the progenitor of American cold synth sounds of the 21st Century. He began under the moniker Moravagine before he started releasing limited edition cassettes and playing Brooklyn dives as Martial Canterel in 2002.
Since then, McBride’s bleak intellectual exercises in the dark and danceable have flooded North America and Europe through the frosty fairwaves paved by Pieter Schoolwerth’s Wierd Records. With an inimitable minimal style merging bright, urgent melodies ornamented and punctuated by the noises of industry and McBride’s sonorous, stern vocals, Martial Canterel’s recent releases (You Today, Refuge Underneath) have garnered both critical acclaim and a rapidly growing rabid fanbase.
McBride’s influence can be heard in scores of bands in the Weird cadre and beyond (he is also one half of the Weird Records duo Xeno and Oaklander). Through the collision of a uniquely humanistic means of production via live analogue synthcraft expertly paired with vocals and lyrics that reflect the pitfalls and pleasures of our age, Martial Canterel provides a visceral kick best felt on the dancefloor, amidst a flurry of flesh in motion.
