Leelo record release show // Urban Spree // OCT 16

Leelo is an Estonian born musician who has spent the last three years in Berlin, playing on the streets and at local venues.
Since graduating high school she has lived in several different countries and although originally a classically trained flautist, she is now rocking the singer-songwriter scene.
Let’s put it like that: Leelo is really into 90’s music and loves the sound of guitars.

Last year she recorded her self titled debut album at The Famous Gold Watch studio and this October it will be out for you all to listen to!

To celebrate this, Leelo is hosting her official record release show at Urban Spree. There will be special guests, lots of inappropriate jokes and maybe a tiny bit of fun…and of course Leelo with the whole band.

Khana Bierbood – Urban Spree, Berlin

Album-Stream: https://khanabierboodgggb.bandcamp.com/

Khana Bierbood (translated as Strange Brew in Thai), formed in 2012, in Bangsaen Beach in Thailand. After hours of jamming together they started to create their unique sound influenced by 60’s surf music, 70’s garage rock with Thai traditional music.

In January 2019 they released their debut LP “Strangers From The Far East”. Produced by Go Kurasawa (Kikagaku Moyo) it was recorded in Tokyo in Tsubame Studios. Uber-tremeloed guitar riddled with the twangy melodies of 1960s style soundtrack-esque party time frat-rock garage style. These are great pop songs with magic sprinkles of Eastern soundtracks, Spaghetti Western’s spacious twang and some grooving yé-yé sounds. The album was “Album of the Week” at Bandcamp, ByteFM and Rough Trade.

The current line up is:
GOB Yutthana -Vox, Guitar
JAY Rathchanon – Bass, Backing Vocals
OHM Chanutpong – Drums
Peep Sirimit – Percussions, Keys
MO Kittinan – Guitar

Automatic – Urban Spree, Berlin

 

Like all the best bands, Automatic found each other in an organic way. Izzy Glaudini (synths, vocals), Lola Dompé (drums, vocals) and Halle Saxon (bass, vocals) met in the DIY band scene of Los Angeles and started jamming together in 2017. Over the last year, they have become an important part of the L.A. Club circuit, sharing the stage with bands like Surfbort, Wand and Flatworms. On 27 September 2019 their debut album “Signal” will be released on Stones Throw / PIAS.

Lola was born into a punk household (her father is Kevin Haskins, the drummer of Bauhaus) and joined her first band, the art-rock outfit Blackblack, when she was just 13 years old. Halle and Izzy met in local bands in the northeast of L.A.; Izzy was a guitarist and singer, and Halle liked to plug her fretless bass into a guitar amp. Unimpressed by the masculine energy of the local scene and the rock music on the radio – “pumped out like plastic bottles into the ocean” – Izzy changed guitars into synths and joined Halle and Lola in 2017. They called themselves “Automatic” after a song by the Go-Go’s – the only (!) purely female band that ever wrote and recorded an entire album that reached number 1 in the charts in the USA.

Automatics guitarless setup seemed to leave a void in the sound at first, but their interplay gave them strength and they took their place in the scene. Empowerment in the best sense. They refined their sound and, informed by Neu! and Suicide, combined their preference for dub reggae, motoric rhythms and gnarled synthesizers with their cinematic pop understanding. In collaboration with sound engineer and producer Joo Joooo Ashworth (FROTH), they started working on their GarageBand demos and their debut album.

Their first single “Calling It” captures the feeling of drifting in an endless space, tearing everything apart and starting anew. Elsewhere on “Signal”, songs speak directly from the band members’ experiences: “Humanoid” and “Too Much Money” are reflections on boredom, misfortune and the disappointing falsehood of social media personae, while the title track “Signal” is about “being trapped in the drudgery of a shitty life/job and realizing that no one but yourself will save you from it.” “Signal” is the title track of the band’s album. A shocking near-death accident in her apartment inspired Izzy to write “Electrocution” – an experience alluded to in the cover packshot, which shows a switch on a red background.

Izzy studied film at college and Halle used to work at the legendary video store “Kims Video” in New York, so it’s no wonder that the band also mentions film as an important influence on their music. David Lynch and Dario Argentos in particular have left their mark on the ambiguous lyrics and eerie atmospheres.

The red thread that runs through “Signals” is the feeling of fear and alienation, possibly one of the most formative experiences of the early 21st century: the feeling of being on the edge of the world. Or as Automatic put it: “The world is so fucked. I don’t know how a musician could say: ‘That’s all great.'”
