Poolside

Poolside began as a recording project in a converted Los Angeles backyard pool house in early 2011, producing sunny tracks of subaquatic indie dance music in this makeshift recording studio. Surfacing first in the form of a YouTube video for the catchy track « Do You Believe? » Poolside were soon gaining local and national attention, with DJs like James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem, techno legend Derrick May, and disco don Todd Terje spinning these tracks at events and a growing online following. Throughout 2011 Poolside continued making waves with a sound called « daytime disco » through tracks like their cover of Neil Young’s « Harvest Moon » and original tunes. In 2012 Poolside worked on a remix for longtime disco punks The Rapture and held fans over with a new single and video for a song called « Slow Down » as they prepared to release their debut album. That album, Pacific Standard Time, was self-released in July of 2012.

After the album’s release, remixes for artists like Matthew Dear, Little Dragon and Fool’s Gold soon followed, as well as rehearsing and touring with a live band and doing DJ sets around the world. As thoughts turned to a second album, Poolside went on ice for a year to regroup, beginning to work in earnest on another album in the Fall of 2016. While still revolving around the sunny, laid-back disco sound of PST, these sessions yielded the additions of up-tempo dance songs and more guitars, and generally more fleshed-out arrangements. Poolside surprise released their second album Heat in 2017.

THE MORLOCKS
BRING ON THE MESMERIC CONDITION
(Hound Gawd Records/Rough Trade)

As it says in the Bible, “ask and you shall receive” The Morlocks are proud to announce ( for all ye faithful ) the release of their new LP. “BRING ON THE MESMERIC CONDITION” on “Hound Gawd Records. Slated for release early Summer 2018. Recorded By Alaska Winter at various secret locations in Germany ,

East meets West (Berlin). Mixed and mastered by the notorious “Jim Diamond “ of Dirtbombs fame, to give it that special “Motor City” grit and grease that is required on a Morlocks record! Alas it´s been a while since the release of “The Morlocks Play Chess”, “BRING ON THE MESMERIC CONDITION” features something never before offered on a Morlocks LP , all original songs!!!!!

Both as a band and as individuals, The Morlocks have earned their stripes on the rock and roll circuit. Through break-ups, break downs, personnel changes, changing cities and shifts in popular culture, The Morlocks have continually grown stronger at what they do best even as they died their many deaths. In the process, The Morlocks have built up a die-hard following and originality. Where others would have bled out long ago, The Morlocks get stitched up and keep going.

Surprising, then, that in 1999, Spin Magazine printed an inaccurate story declaring the death of their energetic, charismatic lead singer Leighton Koizumi (also fronting the Gravedigger V). Needless to say, Leighton (far from being dead) continues to lead the charge, a duty he has held since the band’s debut LP Emerge. The Morlocks have continued to perform and make records, a number of which have been featured prominently in movies, television shows and video games.

Currently based out of Düsseldorf , Leighton has inlisted a who´s who European fuzz masters… Starting with Rob Louwers – drums ( Fuzztones, Q-65, Link Wray) Oliver Pilsner -Bass ( Fuzztones, Cheeks, Montesas, Magnificent Brotherhood) Bernadette – Guitar ( Sonny Vincent, Humpers) and Marcello Salis ( Gravedigger V, Hangee V), The Morlocks have been secluded in their secret European lair . planning and plotting a new set along with classic fan favorites! You can expect a whole new trip, including new recordings, new tours, new merch, and a new « live » show guaranteed to melt your mind, make your ears bleed, put some boogie in your backseat, and leave you with an intense feeling of wanting more.

GHOST LEE
Ghost Lee is a new musical collective based in Berlin, masterminded from the psychedelic genius of Tito Lee (Tito and the Brainsuckers, Electric Flashbacks, Leighton Koizumi), eccentric performer and guitar player devoted to the most obscure, intense magnetic sounds from the psychedelic vaults.The band performs a kind of soft psychedelia in the style of West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, Orient Express, Spacemen 3, blended with fuzz ripping influences in the most genuine sixties garage tradition.The band members feature Adrian Gray(Gang Zero, The Dark) on bass and Silver Luke on drums (Brainsuckers, Dead Lovers).
Ghost Lee first album, “Ghostly” is on its way to be released.
Keep your mind open and your fuzzbox on 10!

Milk Me Presents: Crack Cloud

Crack Cloud is a multimedia collective, comprising members from different cities, ethnicities and origins, who contribute to the sound, visual aesthetic and beyond – but their latest release, Anchoring Point, is helmed by seven key members. Taking its sonic influence from the likes of Gang Of Four, Fela Kuti and Talking Heads, its visuals from hip hop and the found footage aesthetic of the ‘90s, and its political ethos from thinkers like Malcolm X and Lydia Lunch, Anchoring Point is a barbed, lurching thing, a cacophony of punchy fragments, funk-laced bass riffs and experimental soundscapes. “We wanted to be expressive in a way that could be erratic but cohesive at the same time,” explains Choy. “Emotionally, it zig-zags. We wanted it to take a life of its own; a life in flux.”

There’s a political undertone to much of Anchoring Point – its lyrics, its sound, even the EP’s artwork, which declares itself to be “how they refer to the latest vendible thing from Crack Cloud. For fun and profit!” But if there’s an agenda to their music, says Choy, “the agenda is humanity and compassion. We invite people to meditate openly about their privilege. Their vice. Their pride and their vulnerability.” Both he and partner Mohammad Ali Sharar are immigrants who struggled with addiction – Choy’s triggered by the death of his father, Mohammad Ali from the cultural turbulence that came from the racism he experienced from outside his community, and the rejection from within it when he started to question Islam. They’ve redefined themselves in sobriety and work together in the mental health industry, facilitating safe spaces based on the harm reduction model for vulnerable and marginalized people in Downtown Vancouver. Crack Cloud is informed by these experiences, past and present.

These experiences inform the work in ways Choy and the collective don’t always attempt to tame or control. ‘Empty Cell’, for example, is a “stream-of-consciousness piece,” made up of different voices from different angles. It follows EP opener ‘Graph Of Desire’, a punky duet of sorts, with shades of early Bowie, that comes in at just a minute and a half long, and precedes ‘Image Craft’, which has a melody like a ticking clock and a video that evokes Lynch’s Eraserhead. “Each song on Anchoring Point,” says Choy, “is one piece of the pie.”

And what does the pie as a whole look like? Choy’s not sure exactly. “It creates a messy picture. We hope people can resonate with its messiness. Thoughts and feelings are ephemeral and there is always a new insight to have and a new connection to be sought after, and it’s a celebration of that. Old and new. And the Anchoring Point in-between.”

Undogmatisch,
presents the new release « Cronovisione Italiana » by Carlo Domenico Valyum.

CARLO DOMENICO VALYUM

…“After years of constant work on the development of his machines in February of ’37, Carlo Domenico manages to intercept anomalous audio/video electromagnetic waves. This important finding will be all that remains as a real testimony to his enormous work as a researcher and inventor. No other documents or inventions, to provide evidence of Carlo Domenico’s realisations, have so far come to light; including his much sought after secret diary and personal notes
Since 1939, news of him has become evermore a mystery. Some documents testify to his presence in various places at the same time, creating a sometimes confused map with many question marks but confirming his ability of physical and temporal bilocation,
At the end of August 2014, in Berlin, the existence of the briefcase containing the material intercepted in 1937, recorded on to VHS in the 70s, is casually discovered. And what is immediately clear is that Carlo Domenico Valyum in February 1937 had intercepted and further recorded electromagnetic waves coming from future Italian television broadcasts over a period of time between 1976 up until December 9, 1989, the day before his alleged death.
To date, all the documents are filed together along with the analogue copy under the title Dossier Carlo Domenico Valyum“.

T.RAUMSCHMIERE

Marco Haas started his musical career as an inventor.
First, he invented a framework, and then himself. Initially, the record company founded by him and Marcus Stolz in Heidelberg served as a mere vehicle for the recordings of his band “Stormbow”. It was the year 1997 and “Stormbow” was an eminently talented band with Marco Haas on drums – one of several eminently talented bands, however, to be found in Baden-Württemberg, the Palatinate, the Ruhr region. Unique, on the other hand, was that newly minted vehicle called “Shitkatapult”.
In 1998, Marco Haas relocated his life and label operations to Berlin – and to the world of electronic music, which he took into his dark heart and as an opportunity to rename himself after characters of a William S. Burroughs story: the Dreamcops, translated into 50’s German as “Traumschmiere” and marked for a new tomorrow by a smartly placed period. T.Raumschmiere was born, and a bold new chapter of electronic music from Berlin was being written. His first full-length releases on Shitkatapult were dedicated to the darkly charged traces of an electronic music that combined bass drum and ambient, snottiness and greatness: Stromschleifen (Shitkatapult, 2000), Zartbitter (Shitkatapult 2002). At the same time, some 12″es were spotted on Cologne’s Kompakt imprint: Boltzplatz (Kompakt 2000), Musick (Kompakt 2001). The latter were big rave news with a terrific sawtooth confidence, an iconized rock masculinity that didn’t only go all jolly and funny, but also big and serious.
On Kompakt, the real shit always pointed more towards Wolfgang Voigt, to the realm of inventions. In 2002, Marco Haas as T.Raumschmiere topped off this era with a milestone ambient double album on the it-label at the time, Chicago’s Hefty, rated artistically worthwhile and endowed with yet another clearcut name from the treasure chest of awesome inventions: Anti (Hefty 2002). Worldwide tours followed quickly.
And it’s precisely here that the next stunner drops: the man, not a studio nerd (although he is), but first and foremost an event beyond compare, a performer extraordinaire who puts rave and techno, rock and roll, live and crass and black and dark all into one word, one riff like never before, in an endless series of smashed tables, exploded mixing desks and open mouths. A star was born. Self-made and crazed-out. The whole shebang got consolidated on a Shitkatapult album, cobbled together from the most important material of the aforementioned releases and one ingenious claim: T.Raumschmiere – The Great Rock N Roll Swindle (Shitkatapult, 2003). A pretty big whopper in the techno circus.
Freak-outs ensued. Daniel Miller had to have it and T.Raumschmiere got signed on Novamute, the club outlet from London’s Mute label, which was just about to swim towards the EMI shark, or rather whale belly. T.Raumschmiere was in the right place at the right time, a big label with towering fellows such as Luke Slater, Plastikman, Speedy J, Motor, Cristian Vogel and so on and so forth. T.Raumschmiere scored a mega hit with Monstertruckdriver (Novamute, 2003) and became a staple in the line-ups of all the essential clubs and festivals.
But by the time his second Novamute full-length Blitzkrieg Pop (Novamute, 2005) came around, he was already sick of it and presented a dumbfounded audience with a rock-primed album full of songs and riffs that carved out their niche somewhere between Nick Cave, Nine Inch Nails and Bohren, also relaunching T.Raumschmiere as an actual live band.
Quite honestly, many were disapointed with the new rock paradigm and the tattooed insolence. Where’s our Sawtooth Rave King? It led right to the demise of EMI, a logical consequence among others. T.Raumschmiere released two more full-lengths on Shitkatapult… the dramatically underrated ambient masterpiece Random Noize Sessions Vol.1 (Shitkatapult, 2006), and his most-accomplished rock album I Tank U (Shitkatapult, 2008). But the fans were still demanding the “Monstertruckdriver” and a T.Raumschmiere trio bravely battled its way through gigs and tours. The next 5 years happened off-road, outside of the mainstream. And the ever-cooperating Marco Haas focussed on his studio work, especially for others such as Dieter Meier of Yello fame, Andreas Dorau, Fraktus, Ofrin or Barbara Morgenstern. In doing so, he also devotes himself to the depth of the technology and its systems. And constantly reinvents himself in the process.
In 2016, Shitkatapult sub label “Albumlabel” presented a pretty big ambient album without a tilte, which Haas recorded together with friend and colleague Ben Lauber (also known as drummer for the T.Raumschmiere band, Dendemann, Olli Schulz or as orchestral arranger and hero of projects). Marco Haas on a mission! Two full-lengths emerge from his collab with Ulli Bomans aka Schieres under the Shrubbn!! monicker (Echos, Shitkatapult 2012, and Europa, Shitkatapult 2016), alongside remixes for Dave Gahan, Warren Suicide or Apparat (for which Shrubbn!! also played support slots in Europe). A series of concerts with the exceptional Jazz/Noise guitarist Caspar Brötzmann (a collaborative 10″ will be released in April 2017 via Shitkatapult) furthered T.Raumschmiere’s steady quest for uncharted terrain. And didn’t exhaust the artist, but rather exploited full potential.
May 2017 will see Cologne’s Kompakt releasing his new, epic solo album called Heimat. Back to the roots – but also into heaven! This new full-length presents another side of T.Raumschmiere, which was always present, but never got much airtime: the artist, the author – the composer with the crystal-clear sound. A wonderful techno album that neither excludes Ambient, nor gets reduced to a constant ass kicking. It’s perhaps the best recording from this man who asks so deeply, so extensively, so much. And at some point even answers.

JD ZAZIE

Born in Bolzano (IT), JD ZAZIE is a DJ, avant-turntablist and sound artist based in Berlin. Coming from a DJ and a radiophonic background JD Zazie has explored over the years different approaches of real-time manipulation on fixed recorded sound.
In her work she redefines DJ and electroacoustic activities. As a solo performer, in small groups or large ensembles she moves in an area which is constantly stretching the borders of what is supposed to be DJ mixing, free improvisation and composed music.
Intended as music instruments CDjs, turntables and mixer are her tools to mix the specific sound-sources she plays (mostly electronic music, electroacoustic music, musique concrète, field recordings and improvised music).
The typology of the sound-sources varies from already existing audio publications and sound effects, to self recorded audio files – as live-set and field-recordings -, to selected pre-mixed material. Juxtaposition, decontextualization, fragmentation, repetition, sonic texture, scratch and error are elements of the grammar adopted to relate, organize and rearrange the sound material.
In her sound installations she explores everyday life, refers to urbanism and relates to sound atmosphere.
She is a member of the Italian label Burp Enterprise and co-runs Staalplaat Radio.
She has participated in numerous exhibitions and events including Simultan festival (RU), Berlin Atonal (DE), All Ears (NO), Heroines of Sound (DE), Reheat festival (AT), High Zero festival (US), Music Unlimited #27 (AT), Tuned City Bruxelles (BE), Open Provocation festival (UK), Festival Rue du Nord (CH), Audiograft 2012 (UK), Echtzeitmusiktage 2010 (DE), STEIM’s Turntable Night #7 (NL), Avantgarde Festival Schiphorst (DE).
