Lauren Ruth Ward // Berlin

live: Lauren Ruth Ward
support: Emma Cole
doors: 7 pm show: 8 pm Urban Spree

Declared by music critics as a cross between Janis Joplin, Florence Welch and Courtney Barnett, Lauren Ruth Ward is a force of nature. Her lyrics are secrets to strangers, writing about her life’s trajectory sharing both vulnerability and strength delivered with grit and vibrato. Her band flirts with 1950-90’s rock and roll nuances, allowing Ward to release a powerhouse of raw, visceral emotion in their live show. Her critically acclaimed debut album Well, Hell introduced her too a worldwide audience, with accolades from NYLON, Noisey, Consequence of Sound, The Los Angeles Times, Indie Shuffle and more. She has played to sold out crowds in US and overseas, sharing stages with artists as diverse as Keith Urban, Shirley Manson, Eddie Vedder, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Shakey Graves, LP and Liz Phair. Her band capped off last year with a cover of “White Rabbit” in celebration of Grace Slick’s birthday and paid the same respects for Jim Morrison’s 75th by releasing “Happy Birthday Jim”, a 7 song Doors tribute album which included music videos for all 7 tracks. Ward hit the ground running this year releasing 6 original singles and 3 music videos. This prolific catalog includes; “Valhalla”, “Hungry Barber”, “Pullstring”, “We Are Grown Ups”, “Wise Gal” and soon to be released “Super Bullshit”. “Same Soul”, a collaboration between Ward and Desi Valentine for Jack Daniels was also released. Ward is addicted to discovering herself. She joined forces with Chris Hess of SWIMM for their side project called Aging Actress, directed/produced a music video for Alicia Blue’s song “Incognito” and will be releasing a 12 track, 5 music video, body of work in the new year. She is inspired by everything and is most thankful for her guitarist / writing partner Eduardo Rivera for nurturing their creative process.

EMMA COLE
Now is the time for uncomfortable truths and Emma Cole will go where most artists play it safe.
Her voice is smooth as chocolate and bitter like coffee, having been both trained and tattered by life.
Her music is ornate psychedelic realism for a generation eager to go deeper, digging up the common connections within our human nature and delivering her intimate experiences with both ferocity and grace.
The paradox between a great time and music as medicine is ever-present at an Emma Cole show.
An electric performer, Emma will furrow your brow in angst until you release it in dance.
Her performance is loud, honest, and oh-so-groovy. Emma’s latest release, ‘Zachary’, was produced by Rollingchild and written for her late cousin, Zachary. Born less than 24 hours apart, Emma learned the hard way that bonds don’t break even in death and calls out to him:
“This song is a message of peace wrapped inside of the ambiance of life’s thrills.”
Emma Cole’s debut EP “If You Don’t Holler, No One Will Hear” (2018) is an autobiographical account of her struggles as a teenager and young woman.
There’s nothing comfortable about it, and the strength in that release is where true art is born.
That’s where Emma Cole finds her empowerment and boldly transfers it to you, the listener.
Emma’s debut includes a line of songs both energetic and slow burning, with “unimposing lyrics” allowing the listener to dive in and own the experience for themselves.

⊙ TRUMANS WATER ⊙
(San Diego – California)
https://trumanswater.bandcamp.com
https://www.facebook.com/trumanswater
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trumans_Water
The Water took shape in ’91, when the Fender-bending brothers Branstetter hooked up with singer-guitarist-catalyst Glen Galloway; soon San Diego had a rollicking avant-rock angle to its music scene in TW, the kind of band that, say, could righteously open for/tour with the Boredoms or Stereolab (Trumans did). But after their self-made albums Of Thick Tum, Spasm Smash, the Godspeed tetralogy and numerous singles had sent their sounds worldwide, Glen exited to marry, concentrate on his Holy Spirit-stoked Soul-Junk group and stay in SD as Trumans continued touring, eventually moving to Oregon. What amazed many was how quick a study then-bassist Kevin B. proved to be when Glen G. passed on lead vocal and co-guitar-ing duties. Empowered, the younger Branstetter picked up the torch, carrying it still. From time to time, Galloway would return as a guesting full member to augment Trumans albums.
Trumans Water never really went away. But the veteran American spazz-rock/squiggle-core group’s live shows have been rare in recent years (outside of the Pacific Northwest, that is.) TW has become increasingly more obscure as well, relatively unknown to untold pods of younger blog-rockin’ folk sharp-eared discerners, who might well luv TW were they to know TW still deemed legendary by those who, a) remember Trumans’ halcyon days in America’s early/mid-90s guitar-rock underground;
b) recall the life-altering praise from abroad, with the late great all-time tip-top good-taste-making radio
DJ John Peel championing them over international airwaves, and the Melody Maker making this pithy 1993 assessment: Sonic freaks with a lust for life, Trumans Water make Pavement sound like U2. TW has continued, doing it all even with key co-founding brothers living miles apart: lanky guitarist-vocalist Kirk Branstetter in Portland, Oregon, where the band relocated in 1995 (they formed in San Diego in 1991); and savvy vox/gtr/bass/etc. guy Kevin Branstetter, who married French and lives south of Paris w/ wife and offspring (and is known to offer pro road/liaison services for indie/outie music types touring lEurope).
Trumans is rounded out by versatile bassist/veteran cohort Mike Coumatos (also known as 50% of fine ongoing Portland party-rock duo the Bugs) and drumming dynamo Geoff Soule (of Fuck and Sad Horse). The TW identity has remained: the ever-active, wildly clawing, rough-toned brace of guitars; the sour-sweet sing-shout screech-croon ‘n’ power-yowl; the explosive rhythms, herking here and jerking there, none too predictable anywhere. And some fun sound-play with thoughtfully goofin’ verbiage.
TW has been recording over the past years but not releasing anything. They are currently assembling some of those songs for release previous to tour. What’s more, Trumans is planning to catch up any interested parties in coming months by digitally re-releasing the 1st four elusive albums of the Trumans Water discography. Their coming tour will be a celebration of those first four albums along with new material.

⊙ TRIGGER CUT ⊙
(Stuttgart – Germany)
https://triggercut1.bandcamp.com
https://www.facebook.com/Triggercut-742161089469022
Trigger Cut are hard hitting to say the least. The drums pack an intense energy behind the high guitar tones which allow for the bass to really punch through. The result is a sound dealing nothing but brute force without the need for any over-engineering and a uniquely raw punk rock experience. The rough and ready vocals perfectly round off the resounding tension with only small doses of any form of melody.

⊙ FLEUVES NOIRS ⊙
(Lille – France)
https://fleuvesnoirs.bandcamp.com
https://www.facebook.com/FleuvesNoirs
Fleuves Noirs is an experience of collective madness in a form of a great tribal ritual. The dance is led by a tribal beat with incantory and hallucinated vocals, all leading to an inevitable chaos. Fleuves Noirs performances are like an Ayahuasca ritual, they don’t leave anyone unscathed.

⊙ DEAD SENTRIES ⊙
(Berlin – Germany)
https://deadsentries.bandcamp.com
https://www.facebook.com/DeadSentries
Minimalistic. Ritualistic. Hypnotic. Dead Sentries play edge of your seat, noisy, outsider punk rock. Focusing on mesmerising rhythms, pulsating basslines and discordant, razor sharp guitar, Dead Sentries are brash and compelling. The music swaggers, struts and swings. The sound is visceral and primal.

Nadja • Some Became Hollow Tubes • A-Sun Amissa

obnoxious ouroboros & gizeh records
presents

⊙ NADJA ⊙
Nadja (Aidan Baker & Leah Buckareff) create music that has been variously described as drone metal, ambient doom, and shoegaze, combining soundscapes, electronics, & atmospheric vocals, tempering the cacophony with an ethereal melodicism such that the listener is enveloped in a sublimating wall of amorphous sound. Nadja began in 2005 in Toronto, Canada & is currently based in Berlin, Germany.

⊙ SOME BECAME HOLLOW TUBES ⊙
A new project combining the talents of two of the finest producers of noise out there. Eric Quach (THISQUIETARMY, etc)’s looping layers of instrumentation give their music an ominous air but with the drumming of GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR and EXHAUST’s Aidan Girt sitting underneath it, their music has a familiarity that’s hard to shake even when hearing it for the first time. Industrial landscapes flicker before your mind’s eye and crumble again, and tension stretches time to the point where you’re not quite sure how long you’ve been listening.

⊙ A-SUN AMISSA ⊙
A-Sun Amissa is a music collective founded and led by Richard Knox (The Eternal Return Arkestra, The Rustle of the Stars, Shield Patterns, Glissando) that has featured an array of members and collaborators since it’s formation in 2011. Their sound touches on elements of post-rock, doom, dark-jazz and heavy drone. Recorded output has been released on Richard’s own Gizeh label as well as Belgium’s Consouling Sounds.
Live, the set-up can range from a solo performance to a full band show. Dense and heavy atmospheres provide the backdrop to the sound. Layers of mournful, melancholic and ethereal melodies weave amongst the thundering beats, deep drones and intense, heaving guitars.

►►► Paul Arámbula
After bringing the keyboard across the long ocean, taking long walks, and working long nights in the middle of the sometimes long faces, Paul has written (long) songs about familiar strangers, saying a lot of nothing, forcing the easy life, and loving to hate that you are them. Planted amongst the improvised finger mess of keys are songs from the bedroom-pop album “A Bit of Both” as well as some new unreleased tracks.

The Joy of Mechanical Force

Early Industrial and Avant-Garde, Berlin school and Psychedelia originated in the 70s. The character of the event is purely Experimental. Reconciling different disciplines such as Performance and Video Art. The Joy of Mechanical Forces is a meeting, where the Acts will melt with the spontaneity of the moment. We will travel to other places and to other times. Recovering the Energy of places that perished in time such as Zodiac Free Arts Lab. Attracting those who want to share and breathe an Analog air, a new Multicoloured flavour! Metallic sounds that collide with each other like trucks on the road, heraldic voices that pronounce the arrival to other dimensions, a ritual that brings us closer to Catharsis…
