Bonnie Li -Wǒ Men- ALBUM Release PARTY

Icons Creating Evil Art présents:

Dark Pop / Trip Hop / Electro-Cabaret

On the occasion of the release of her debut album “Wǒ Men”
Bonnie Li will throw her release party at Urban Spree on the 14th of Feb!

“In Mandarin ‘wǒ’ means I-myself, ‘wǒ men’ is translated into we-us, and if you skip the space in between it gives you ‘women’, I wanted to play around with that.”

Written over the course of the last year, ‘Wǒ Men’ was arranged with Elia M Sycomor and produced by regular collaborator Paolo Pizzuto in their new home in Berlin, setting the start of a new evolution for the artist.
With the use of further instrumentation and adopting a more Dark-Pop aesthetic, Bonnie Li sees the release as the start of a new beginning for her, experimenting further and moving away from her trip-hop-inspired origins.
“Wǒ Men” looks to be a beacon of coveted thoughts, speaking opinions that you know you shouldn’t, channelling insecurity in a search for yourself. It’s organic, dynamic and fragile, distorted as a mirror to the artist’s emotions and fears, sensitive and dark.

Singer/composer & multi-lingual polymath, Bonnie Li has already been praised by the likes of Clash Magazine EARMILK, Rolling Stone Italia and The Line Of Best Fit.

SEE YOU THERE Beautiful Freaks ♥

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 Weird 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.

Blind Delon, H ø R D, Leere live + after party Herzschlag

BLIND DELON

Founded in 2016 by Mathis Kolkoz and after releasing several works on Oráculo Records / Bordello A Parigi and some DJ sets around Europe, Blind Delon raised to a multi-art project (3 musicians and a visual composition by the french artist AFB).

With their heads and bags filled with synthesizers from a time they weren’t even born, the band can be found today between a record shop and a cave rave, looking for an aesthetic that is nowhere near dying. Post-Synthwave might be the best words to qualify the project, as the music is a sort of breed between outrageous Pop and cold basslines.

Building a bridge between Pop and Rave music, Blind Delon is making a NOT conventional yet romantic Post-Punk sound.

H ø R D

H ø r d creates electronic music inspired by coldwave, soundtracks, fantasy movies, oscillating between epic compositions, EBM and techno pulse, and also more contemplative tracks.

After performances on his own musical territory, he gradually came to the European synth wave scene, signing a remix for Winter Severity Index (Rome) and performing live in Germany (Wave Gotik Treffen), Belgium, Czech Republic, Swiss, Malta, Italia, Austria, Spain.

His first album “Focus on light” was released 2016 on Anton Maiiovi’s label Giallo Disco Records, and sold out 6 weeks later.
In 2017, his third EP «Futures» is out on Sacred Court, label of electronic artist SNTS.

His upcoming second LP will be out in Avant! Records in September, 2018.

«The label Giallo Disco Records have described the music as “Reverb-Soaked Urban-Gothic Melancholic songs, between synth-shoegaze and violent EBM,” and believe the album will “will resonate strongly with fans of Pornography-era The Cure, Joy Division and classic Nine Inch Nails.” To our ears we hear strains of early Tropic of Cancer and dare we say Pet Shop Boys, and overall, as you’ll be able to tell from the album preview below, it’s a well informed reincarnation of what makes the synth, minimal and no wave genres so appealing today.» JUNO DOWNLOAD (2016)

LEERE

We come from nowhere and move towards emptiness.
Leere is an introvert musical project, trying to express and fill the emptiness inside us. The use of analog and digital sounds of the 80s and the integration of sounds from Berlin, the city that influences her and her music strongly, helps her with that hard task.

Worn Pop in Berlin: Super Besse (BY) + label residents showcase

“Worn Pop is a music organization based in Kiev and was formed by Nikita Netrebko in 2013 to develop Ukrainian coldwave movement by doing shows with guests from abroad, as well as managing and releasing artists coming from the local scene. Their first releases was produced in 2014 on cassettes and CD’s and were basically full DIY from recording at home till cutting cassette tape and assembling them back and were selling mostly offline. Later they stretch their genre palette a lot, but saved own image where all artists in rooster or line-up fit each other by mood and overall atmosphere. Being concentrated mostly on booking shows in 2015 – 2017 Worn Pop became well-known in Ukraine and through out some music scenes in Europe, so time has come for coming back to releasing. The residents of the label go on tour dedicated to their new releases in August of 2018 through Kiev, Lviv, Berlin, Copenhagen, Warsaw and Kalabalik Pa Tyrolen in Sweden.”

Particle Kid feat. Willie Nelson‘s son Micah Nelson + HEKLA

Particle Kid, feat. Micah Nelson (son of Willie Nelson, member of Neil Young‘s band) + HEKLA – Berlin doom pop (swelling synth sounds, dramatic rythms and wavy guitar washes) LIVE!

Particle Kid (experimental folk rock | US)

Particle Kid is the experimental musical identity of Los Angeles-based musician and visual artist J. Micah Nelson. As Particle Kid, Micah Nelson has created a multi-dimensional musical universe all his own, crafted with immense ambition, inventive production techniques, and strikingly emotive song craft. Nelson achieves the near impossible by sounding both familiar and oddly modern, with the spirits of future folk, low rider funk, riff rock, power pop, lysergic Americana, flower punk, and progressive jazz fusion all somehow woven together with deep-rooted melodies, unique improvisational elements, and remarkably intricate arrangements.

HEKLA (doom pop | Berlin)

Fronted by two Swedish cousins, HEKLA is a quartet stemming from Berlin’s musical melting pot. Inspired by everything from Scandinavian folk music to 80s synthwave adventures, they bring you along for a ride into the abandoned beach towns and forgotten volcanoes of their minds.
In both music and lyrics, grandiose dreams face their constant companion, destruction. Never shying away from the drama, HEKLA sing about the obsession and madness in us all.
HEKLA released their self-titled debut album in 2017. Their new EP, Boulevards, is out in June 2018.
——————————-
NEW EP TO BE RELEASED JUNE 15TH:
BOULEVARDS
inspired by film noir’s betrayal + love. when the blinds stay low, and the outside world is shut out. riding cars at night and asking: ”you wouldn’t let me go, would you?”

Afterpartees

Direct Booking und ASK HELMUT präsentieren:

AFTERPARTEES

„Musik, zu der sich wunderbar Bier verschütten lässt.“ – (Lie In The Sound). Mit einem Bandnamen, wie ihn die Afterpartees tragen, eilt einem der Ruf voraus: seit ihren Gründungstagen steht das niederländische Quintett für ausufernde Live-Shows und eine wilde Mischung aus energetischem Indie-Pop, schlagkräftigem Punkrock der Siebziger und herzzerreißendem Powerpop. Bei den Afterpartees beinhaltet die Goodie-Bag jedoch akrobatische Turneinlagen und selbstverständlich steht auch jeder auf der Gästeliste.

Moment mal, das mit den „Partyanimals“ kennen wir doch schon aus dem hohen europäischen Norden? Kritikern sei direkt gesagt: Was Kakkmaddafakka für Norwegen sind, das sind die Afterpartees nicht weniger für die Niederlande.

Den erneuten Beweis liefern unsere Lieblingsnachbarn nun mit ihrem zweiten Album „Life Is Easy“, das am 16.03.2018 via Excelsior Recordings erscheint. Wie bereits das Debüt-Album „Glitter Lizard“, mit dem die Afterpartees unter anderem auch bei Circus HalliGalli zu Gast waren, kombiniert „Life Is Easy“ gekonnt Gelassenheit und Bewegungsdrang.

Getreu dem Motto „Das Leben ist einfach“ sind mit Songs wie „Ultimate Worries“, „Easy Money“ oder dem Titel-Track „Life Is Easy“ zwölf Lobeshymnen an die positiven Seiten des Lebens entstanden, bei denen jegliche Form von Trübsinn keinen Platz finden. Stattdessen wechseln bei griffige Gitarrenriffs und schönen Pop(!)-Melodien Verwunderung und Verzückung. Tracks wie „Somewhere“, „I Like Your Heart“ oder „Let’s Talk It Over“ machen schnell deutlich: den Afterpartees wurde offensichtlich die Formel gegen den Winterblues in die Wiege gelegt. Nicht umsonst wird ihre Heimatregion Limburg auch als holländischer „Sunshine State“ bezeichnet.

Ihren hohen Unterhaltungsfaktor haben die Afterpartees jüngst auf vier Showcases beim diesjährigen Eurosonic Noorderslag – dem niederländischen Pendant zum Reeperbahn Festival – unter Beweis gestellt. Im Mai steuern die Niederländer ihren Wohnwagen Tourbus dann auch endlich durch Deutschland!
