BABY SATAN Nights – Tanning Bats/Avishag C. R./Nunofyrbeeswax

 

Holly Hell!

Have we got a night for you!

Tanning Bats
https://tanningbats.bandcamp.com/
With a tight and funky rhythm section, angsty vocals and twangy, surf guitars, tanning bats have cut through air molecules as a trio for the past 3 years, taking it off where their former punk outfit ‘Ringostarwars’ left it.
With their new debut vinyl LP – ‘On The Assembly Line Of Heads’ they emphasise a satiric critique of humankind’s conflict of foreground and progression on the one side, and cultural and socio-economic decay on the other. The many captured moods on their album consist of machine gun like punk explosion to cozy and semi psychedelic mantra, bumpy danceable post-punk gems.

On The Assembly Line Of Heads – coming out on the 23rd of May! so yeah, release party!

nunofyrbeeswax
https://nunofyrbeeswax.bandcamp.com/
Nunofyrbeeswax write and play a bunch of pop songs as raw as
their hearts in a minimal set up. Their sound has been described as
an idiosyncratic blend of garage rock, post punk and “proto-indie” for whatever that means. Their music escapes easy associations,
however, they have reminded audiences of bands such as Half
Japanese, the Velvet Underground, The Ex, The Fall, Beat
Happening, B52s and The Cramps.

Avishag Cohen Rodrigues (NYC/TLV)!

Avishag Cohen Rodrigues; a musician from Tel Aviv, currently based in Brooklyn, is a unique artist.

Basement Bash Vol.XVI – Surfbort, Gringo Star, Askers Dodge

 

Basement Bash was born a whole two years ago! Yeah – we can’t believe it either but as a present from us to you we’re offering an electrifying Tuesday night filled with debauchery, mayhem and attitude. You know the drill, just show up.

————–

Surfbort
Surfbort, a four-piece punk band from Brooklyn, New York, channels inspiration from the 80’s punk scene to produce rousing, explosive music.
Surfbort’s live experience is visceral and confrontational so no wonder The Black Keys picked them to open for their 2018 tour and Julian Casablancas (The Strokes) signed them to his label, Cult Records.
Surfbort’s feedback-strafed, guitar-shredding punk music says no to a digital age full of intolerance; they radiate love and friendship. All are welcome in the SURFBORT FREAK FAMILY!

Gringo Star
“Mixing one part punk rock ethic, one part manic performance and a heavy dose of 1950’s Americana….Images of old Western shootouts, drunken nights in saloons and frantic pianos were all over the place while they played.” – Consequence of Sound

Askers Dodge
Up-and-comers Askers Dodge are a blistering international 4 piece based in Berlin, kindling shades of Queens of the Stone Age, Arctic Monkeys and Black Sabbath. Be careful that their retro daydreams don’t turn you into the screaming teenagers of the 50’s.

20:00 – Doors
21:00 – Askers Dodge
21:45 – Gringo Star
22:30 – Surfbort
23:15 – Basement Bash DJ set

Entry: 7€ – 5€ with valid student ID

Martial Canterel

[aufnahme + wiedergabe] presents:

Martial Canterel live
[US, Dais Records / Wierd Records]
www.martialcanterel.bandcamp.com

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 Wierd 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.

Force Field 2-Night Event w Gigsta & Aquarian

This time for the course of a full weekend, Force Field is insanely excited to present Gigsta and Aquarian, both masters of their own distinct sounds.

Host of Cashmere Radio’s Frictions show Gigsta + recent Bedouin Records’ signee Aquarian, will be presenting two very different interpretations of bass-heavy sounds, from skeletal riddims to juicy bangers and beyond.
Our one-off weekend will also be presenting several debuting projects: Two first-ever duo sets by Aquarian b2b RO Zar + a first Force Field resident b2b between RO Zar and Misantrop (latter of who will also be playing a solo set). Finally we’re excited to present Wesley, geriatric-digger yet tenderfoot-DJ, Force Field confidant Jonathan Clark.

GIGSTA (03.08)
A regular host on Cashmere Radio with her show Fictions, Gigsta has been working across many fields of musical theory and practice over the last decade. She is currently writing a PhD on Techno Criticism and spends all of her time away from the library, dancing, playing and digging for sounds. Her sets bring together a variety of genres and she explores different tempos, rhythms, colors and sounds with a specific fascination for lower frequencies.

AQUARIAN (04.08)
Aquarian makes raw, arresting and immediate music aimed squarely at the dance floor. His sound draws from both sides of the Atlantic, combining Drexcyian electro, old school jungle and UK grime with vertical singularity. The Canadian born, Brooklyn/Berlin based artist broke out with a trio of records for UNO NYC, with his 2014 self titled EP cementing him as an artist to watch while landing him a mix on Resident Advisor’s coveted podcast series. Since then he has released records through his own culinary-rave imprint, Hanger Management (described by RA as “Aquarian at his best: searing club melodrama, built from whip-crack breaks, ground-splitting bass and acrid techno adornments), also releasing a lauded experimental cassette for Quiet Time Tapes, a standout track on Allergy Season x Discwoman’s Physically Sick compilation and mixing for Rob Booth’s Seminal Electronic Explorations series.
2018 saw his debut collaborative EP with Deapmash (Leisure System) as AQXDM on UAE’s Bedouin Records with early support from the likes of Ben UFO, Objekt, Avalon Emerson, Dax J, and Emmanuel and championed by the likes of Pitchfork, Mixmag and Resident Advisor. The former wrote: “…scrupulously de-signed, hi-def…crisp and propulsive, “Aegis” is more than a slice of dark and unforgiving techno; it’s some sorely needed dancefloor euphoria.”

FORCE FIELD
Force Field is an event venture gathering the sonic perspectives of selectors RO Zar and Misantrop.
Anything goes—it’s a vibrant melting pot of divergent sounds and disparate tempos, orbiting around bass diasporas, off-kilter riddims, the hardcore continuum, a spectrum of euphoria, modern angularity, oddball gems, and further filth. Cheeky fun for the dancers who like to be kept on their toes.

Big Ups

On May 18th, 2018, Brooklyn’s Big Ups return with their third full-length via Exploding in Sound Records. After forming eight years ago, the band comprised of Brendan Finn (drums), Joe Galarraga (vocals), Amar Lal (guitar), and Carlos Salguero Jr. (bass) continue to tackle dualities in the aptly named Two Parts Together. If 2014’s Eighteen Hours of Static was a brash screed about faith versus science, and 2016’s Before A Million Universes an introspective look at the individual against society, then Two Parts Together lies in the liminal, attempting to make sense of unknowable and basking in uncertainty.

The album’s title track finds vocalist Galarraga searching for meaning in ritual through the examples of a wedding and a funeral. “I just wanted to feel/just how it would be,” he states, hoping for some sort of self-discovery through these human institutions. This emotional inquisition is echoed throughout the album, often in opposition to the omnipresent “lake” mentioned in several songs. What rests below its surface, or bubbles up from the bottom? Throughout Two Parts Together, Big Ups wrestles with the power of mystery both tangibly and metaphysically.

And the band does so often through its signature dynamics. Lal’s biting guitar work is bolstered by Finn’s crashing and Salguero’s booming, and together they can tightly settle into a lull. But Big Ups is not simply employing its old tricks; Two Parts Together sees the quartet utilizing the studio more than ever. Their normal sonic palette has been supplemented with additional strings, harmonium, field recordings, piano, and more. The album is paced through thoughtful instrumentals and interludes, as if to offer the listener a breath of fresh air or – perhaps – a walk around the lake.
