@YOUNG WIDOWS (US) + HEADS. (DE)

Young Widows
Since their inception in 2006, Young Widows have released four studio albums – each pushing their restless drive towards the incomparable a little further. Those albums – Settle Down City (2006), Old Wounds (2008), In and Out of Youth and Lightness (2011), and Easy Pain (2014) – were as bruising as they were brilliant, as menacing as they were mysterious.
DECAYED: Ten Years of Cities, Wounds, Lightness, and Pain perfectly charts Young Widows evolution from inspired post-hardcore trio to peerless entity crafting profound combinations of post-punk, noise rock, heavy psych, and gothic folk.
The fifteen tracks in this collection originally appeared on stand-alone singles, b-side, splits with like-minded artists (including Bonnie Prince Billy, Pelican, Melt-Banana, and MY DISCO), and rare compilations. Four of them have never
been released until now.
Of the many impressive aspects of Young Widows decade-plus run as a band, perhaps most remarkable is the quality and breadth of music they made that didn’t appear on their albums.
Every song here is a standout track from the evolving eras of the band, and as with all things Young Widows, DECAYED pays respect to the past while planting roots for the future.

Vomito Negro (Metropolis Records, BE)

After Party DJs:
Errata Paranoia, Evropa & Tara In Tibet (She Lost Kontrol)
Hanzel & Jaakko (Herzschlag)

Music: // Cold Wave // Minimal Synth // EBM // Industrial

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

Vomito Negro

The band already took off way back in 1982, and over the past years established a name for themselves as uncompromising aural architects, combining power with emotion, electro with vision.
From the start on, flexibility is one of their major qualities.
Vomito Negro is never content with a certain formula: their musical approach, essentially based on the European “Industrialist” tradition of the early eighties, takes a different angle with every record.
Tracing back their history through albums as diverse as “Vomito Negro” (their haunting debut from 1985) to “Wake Up” (1992) one hears growth and evolution in Vomito Negro”s varied soundscapes.
Vomito Negro’s synthesized psychodramas range from danceable to contemplative, from instrumental and ambient to voice-ridden and brutal. Live Vomito Negro stands for a never seen punch of electro power, hammering sequences, pumping live percussion, harsh synths, and vocals that will blow your brain out.

Kris Baha

Much time has passed since Kris Baha swapped the parched red earth and searing midday sun of the Australian outback for the brutalist buildings, communist-era apartment blocks and slate-grey skies of East Berlin.
Now firmly embedded in his adopted city, Baha bas become known for a trademark DJ and production style inspired by sun-baked hallucinatory visions and the clandestine, concrete-clad industrial hum of the metropolis after dark.
Just before the end of 2018, Kris Baha released his EP – “In Your Arms”, a record filled with restless melancholy, chopped beats, sinister frequencies and dramatic twists.

Die Wände – Im Flausch (Offizielle Releaseshow) Support: Lafote

 

 

Nach
5 Jahren Bandgeschichte
4 Touren
3 x Pizza am Tag
2 EPs
nun also

1 Album: “Im Flausch” ab dem 8.3.2019 via Späti Palace erhältlich

Support: LAFOTE

Präsentiert von Späti Palace & ASK HELMUT

Carsten von Postel, Jann Petersen und Mathias Wolff gründen ihre Band 2013 während des gemeinsamen Studiums an der UdK (Universität der Künste Berlin) auf Basis einer beschwipst-euphorischen SMS. Alle Bandmitglieder kommen zu der Zeit aus unterschiedlichsten musikalischen Richtungen, sind neu in ihrer Rolle am jeweiligen Instrument und starten unter dem Namen “girlie” in Richtung Post-Punk. Eines ihrer ersten Konzerte spielen sie im mittlerweile abgerissenen Club Antje Øklesund und finden in dessen sozialer Umgebung schnell ein Zuhause. Im Oktober 2015 veröffentlichen sie über das Berliner Label Späti Palace ihre erste gleichnamige EP auf Kassette & digital, touren und spielen auf Festivals (u.a. beim Jenseits von Millionen, c/o pop, Alinae Lumr und dem Incubate in den Niederlanden). Der Musikexpress kürt sie zu einem der besten Newcomer auf dem c/o pop Festival 2016. Im gleichen Jahr veröffentlichen sie eine gemeinsame Split-EP (12“ Vinyl und digital) mit der Berliner Band Pigeon, anlässlich derer die TAZ ihren Sound als Weiterführung von 80er-Jahre Gruppen wie Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth oder The Wedding Present einordnet.

Diese Genre-Schublade werden sie in 2017/2018 jedoch in Teilen verlassen und beginnen an ihrem Debütalbum zu arbeiten. Im Zuge dessen entschließen sie sich, mit deutschsprachigen Texten weiterzuarbeiten, und veröffentlichen einen ersten Song mit Im Automaten. Die Stimmung der Songs wird offener, zwischen die Instrumentalparts kehrt so etwas wie Popmusik ein – ausgebreitet auf immer wieder gern 5 bis 7 Minuten Spielzeit. So etwa der Im Flausch eröffnende Song Im Park und im Café: So elegant, so träumerisch konkret und ja, so poppig waren sie noch nie. Es ist ihr Kommst du mit in den Alltag. Zwischendurch lassen sie unbeirrt ihre Feedbacks kreischen, die für „frischen Wind in stürmischen Zeiten“ sorgen. Passend raten sie in 11:55 Uhr vor einer Noiseattacke noch schnell „zieh dir ein Jäckchen an, draußen ist es kalt“.

Es ist ein unironisches Nebeneinander von schroffen Oberflächen und einladendem Gestus, von Noise und Pop, von Frustration (Halten Sie Ihre Pläne geheim) und Euphorie (die Chöre!), ja von der grauen Welt (auch der in einem selbst) und von etwas, dass sie Utopie nennen könnten. Wie diese aussieht? „Alles ist weich / alles ist warm / alles ist leicht / alles ist behütet“ singt der Chor in Projektor – nur um durch ein trockenes „konturlos“ ergänzt zu werden, das wie eine Absage an den aufkommenden Eskapismus des Stückes klingt. Keine Flucht möglich also, stattdessen: „Anspruch und Wirklichkeit haben Streit“ (11:55 Uhr). Der titelgebende Flausch ist Sehnsuchtsort und Lethargiefalle in einem (Formgedächtnispolymer).

Im Flausch wurde im Frühjahr 2018 in 7 Tagen live in Prinzhöfte, einer Gemeinde gleich hinter Delmenhorst mit knapp 700 Einwohner*innen, auf dem Dachboden eines leerstehenden Bauernhofhauses fertiggeschrieben und eingespielt. Während nachts der harte norddeutsche Wind durch das alte Gebälk des Hauses pfiff, schliefen Band und die mit den Aufnahmen beauftragten Freunde aus dem Flennen Kollektiv – Alexander Günther (Molde) und Julius Berger (Go Lamborghini Go) – mangels Betten auf Luftmatratzen und Isomatten inmitten der mikrofonierten Verstärker und Drums. Umgeben von nichts als Pferdekoppeln und einem kleinen Waldstück, gestaltete sich der Aufnahmeprozess so intensiv und einnehmend, dass Teile der Band das Haus tagelang nicht verlassen. Einen Tag nach Aufnahmeschluss, wird das Anwesen nach langem Leerstand verkauft. Gesangsaufnahmen und Overdubs entstehen in den darauffolgenden Wochen in einem Berlin-Lichtenberger Proberaumhaus, aufgenommen von Christian Ramisch (NOJ), umgeben von Plattenbausiedlungen. Die Band benennt sich in Die Wände um und beendet damit ihre Neuerfindung. Das Debütalbum der Wände erscheint Mitte März 2019 auf Vinyl und digital bei Späti Palace.

The sun comes down and with it the day shift comes to an end. It is time for the night shift to take over.

On the program: LIVE concert, Drag Shows, New Wave, Synthpop, Dark Wave, Goth, Minimal Wave, EBM, Post-Punk, Italo-disco, Retro Wave and Techno!

Music for the lost: HOLYGRAM‘s music blends post-punk and new wave with Krautrock and shoegaze elements into a headstrong, multi-layered and thoroughly contemporary homage to the sound of the 1980s, including a resolute look to the future: driving, dark and full of catchy moments. The wide range of influences of the five band members, who got together in Cologne’s vibrating musical landscape in 2015, are unmistakable: New Order meets NEU!. Their unpretentious approach to their own icons proves that references to the past must always be future-oriented, too. Previously impossible-to-combine elements come together cleverly to become the soundtrack of a city that appears threatening in the twilight.

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.
