December is approaching and thus the fruity time of the year. At least in the house pøj pøj , with its fourth edition of the Tutti Frutti Fest on 08.12. make the Urban Spree colorful again. Welcome to the Tutti Frutti Festival # 4.
OY (DE / CH)
The two Swiss have been living and working in Berlin for several years, where their current album « Space Diaspora » (Crammed Discs) was created.
Avantgarde Electronica meets jazz, pop & world music – the album sees itself as a kind of « space opera ». The listener goes on a crazy journey to a planet between dream theater and future disco.
OY have already traveled to this place, discovering strange customs, interesting political processes, artistic practices, and never-heard sounds. https://www.oy-music.com
Sea Moya (DE / CA).
Recently emigrated from Germany to Montreal, Sea Moya released their debut album in October 2018. After their EP « Baltic States » from 2016, songwriting and recording in the Italian Alps went wild with elements of funk, afrobeat, krautrock and electronic music. Now based in Montreal (CA) and after several North American tours including concerts at the SXSW in Austin and the Canadian Music Week in Toronto, she is leading her trip back to home in Europe this fall.
In June 2018 the Wiener Gruppe Vague presents their second album Land. The band plays dreamy, light-footed indie pop, sometimes the five in the arrangement to Jazz and Bossanova-Fusion.
Especially as their songs change between soft, complex soundscapes and subversive post-rock bonds.
An album that looks forward and thus expresses a self-conscious aging of the band.
Modern floor coverings (DE)
Modern floor coverings have been devised by Joshua Gottmanns and Niklas Wandt at the relevant Berlin corner counters and bulky waste collections.
The vinyl single « I never fall in love / care for myself » (Themes For Great Cities, 2018) was the first sign of life on four-track tape and musically sets the course towards synthpop, cool NDW and herb repeater. Drums heavy, dublastig and at the same time scary pop – sweeter the needs and crises were probably rarely heard.
Bechamel is a Europunk trio from Berlin, which was founded in 2017. With their new EP « Mucho » in their luggage, the band are currently touring Europe on a tireless basis.
Classic bass drum / guitar instrumentation creates a hybrid of bone-dry punk, garage rock and humorous psychedelics. https://bechamelband.bandcamp.com
