⊙ ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE & THE MELTING PARAISO U.F.O. ⊙
(Japan)

https://www.facebook.com/acidmotherstempleofficial
Acid Mothers Temple & the Melting Paraiso Underground Freak Out (and subsequent offshoots) is a Japanese psychedelic space rock band, the core of which formed in 1995. The band is led by guitarist Kawabata Makoto and early in their career featured many musicians, but by 2004 the line-up had coalesced with only a few core members and frequent guest musicians.
The band has released albums frequently on a number of international record labels as well as the Acid Mothers Temple family record label, which was established in 1998 to document the activities of the whole collective.
“In a non-stop stream of thrilling noise, they segue from supercharged stomp-rock, through doomy choral chanting and frazzled go-go, to a thundering melee of atonal freakouts. Then on to a pulsating, echo-drenched disco-rock groove, which morphs into a motorik rhythm too rapid even for the autobahn, works itself into a squalling frenzy, breaks cover as a kind of galloping, syncopated, Underworld-with-rabies affair, and flows into a long, chiming trance number climaxing in a collective instrumental howl.” – David Bennun

⊙ SUNN TRIO ⊙
(Phoenix – Arizona)
https://sunntrio.bandcamp.com
https://www.facebook.com/sunntrio
Described as deep spirited, Arabic-music-tinged free jazz-punk and harsh exotica, Sunn Trio’s ever-evolving ensemble digests a number of genres, spitting them back out in creative destruction. Carrying on a long tradition of sun-beaten Phoenix punk, Sunn Trio evokes the sweltering and hallucinatory Arizona desert. Echoes of Sonny Sharrock, John McLaughlin, and Sir Richard Bishop can be heard in Joel Robinson’s fiery blurs of guitar. Imagine the Thinking Fellers Union Local 282 in full force, echoing from behind a curtain of bitter haze. Founded by Robinson in 2010, the ever-changing band has been constantly recording and releasing material, with a recent LP, Fayrus, on Germany’s Unrock Records.
“Wielding Indo-Arabian saz and white lightning six-string shrapnel amidst an alligator snapping turtle’s rhythm section, this trio-quartet-sextet may also sprout horns, flutes, animal skins, or shadow gamelan to faithfully demolish that whiny and predictable listening experience of today’s tepidly lazy, underachieving experimental music scene. Not a ‘safe’ environment.” – Alan Bishop of Sun City Girls
“There’s a woozy, heatstroke feel to the band’s innovative blend of surf rock, free jazz, mystical drone, and world music. Consistently recording and releasing material via self-distributed cassettes, the Trio’s sound mutates in concert, with fantastic flurries of distorted guitars butting up against mantric psychedelic saxophone runs and looping bass.” – Jason Patrick Woodbury

Firefriend + Vuelveteloca

Firefriend (Brazil) and Vuelveteloca (Chile) on their journey towards Fuzz Club Festival in Eindhoven, they decided to stop in Berlin town for their first time to deliver what they do at their best. This double Concert will Psych your mind away!

An evening like few others…
Promoted by Drrk’s Secnd & Sandra Fiz .

Firefriend (Cardinal Fuzz Records) (Brazil) —> Listen
“There was a thread in American music in the late 1960s that someone untangled across the U.S., then stretched over to Europe, where it took root in 80s shoegaze. It ties together bands as disparate as the 13th Floor Elevators, the Velvet Underground, Sonic Youth, Mazzy Star, Blonde Redhead, and the Jesus & Mary Chain. It’s noise rock or math punk or psychedelic or shoegaze or doom: It’s the down-tuned sound of chaos and beauty, and while no one was looking, it also worked its way through the Americas and took root in Brazil under the name Firefriend.

Vuelveteloca (Fuzz Club Records) (Chile) —> Listen
Chilean rock band formed in Santiago in 2006. They’re recognised for their explosive and powerful live show. Along their five albums, you can hear some psychedelic rock, stoner, krautrock and space rock.Throughout their work , they have released Vuelveteloca (BYM 2007), Jinete Galáctico (BYM 2010), Días de Calor (BYM 2012), Pantera (BYM 2015) y Sonora (Fuzz Club 2017). They’ve played some international festivals like Liverpool Festival of Psychedelia, Monkey Week (Spain) and Festival En Orbita (Chile), sharing stage with bands as Spiritualized, Dandy Warhols, Dead Meadow, A Place to Bury Strangers and Pond, among others. In 2017 the band released their fifth and critically acclaimed album Sonora, with London label Fuzz Club Records, and are preparing shows around the world, including Levitation Festival in Austin.

Igor Revelis/Klone: The be(Longing)

Urban Spree Galerie presents “The be(Longing)”, the 3rd solo exhibition of Tel-Aviv based artist Igor Revelis a.k.a. Klone with Urban Spree Galerie.

After a decade exploring the medium of paper, “The be(Longing)” marks the return of the artist to the medium of canvas. Bringing his spray can technique of shadows and gradients to perfection, Klone paints monochrome compositions where the matter of the canvas blends into geometric shapes and abstract landscapes.

“The be(Longing) is an investigation of hybrid identity, a portal into a parallel realm tucked away from the increasingly globalized and visually homologized world. Set against the backdrop of dark gallery walls, restless portraits and landscapes can be peered at, stripped of all contextual clues, the painful human relation between object-subject tugs at the primal root of abstraction. There are no nouns in this landscape, everything is a verb, the gaze is an action.” Mika Bar-On Nesher

A few signed copies of the latest artist’s monograph – “FEWMOMENTSAGOIWASHERE”,  looking over the last 8 years of exhibitions, mural projects, installation, and animations, will be available at the opening.

Klone (b.1983) is an Ukrianian-born, Tel-Aviv based street artist, a pioneer of graffiti in Israel and a visual artist

Dark Beats ~ Cold Waves

LIVE: Roberto Auser and Romance Disaster
DJ: Enfant Terrible and åtåmåtån

ROBERTO AUSER has built a name of his own with releases on Viewlexx, Pinkman and Enfant Terrible. Still he stays something like a best kept secret of the Dutch electronic music scene… this mainly due to his output which is never to be pinned to one specific genre or style… His live sets and his release have recently moved more and more into the direction of harsh pounding beats with a dark mood and industrial sounds… and even a true rave spirit… see you on the dance floor!

ROMANCE DISASTER is a Berlin based “woman-machine” live-act founded by Aga Wilk (former 77TM). The music is a blend between techno and dark electro. On stage, besides vocals, Romance Disaster uses drum machines and synthesizers, frequently changing them to make each performance special. For åtåmåtån she has released the great EP “Girls-Guns” with remixes by Millimetric and Ethan Fawkes, packed with beats, stabs and attitude.

What happens when you put together two label heads with a dark beat obsession? You get a great night of music and one hell of a party. That is what åtåmåtån and Enfant Terrible aim at with their Dark Beats ~ Cold Waves night.

This night by åtåmåtån and Enfant Terrible is a synth drive dance night, modern minded with a healthy tribute to the past, not too much looking backwards but also not moving into too much clubby techno regions, more an 80’s and 90’s vibe but also updated with nowadays dark beats.

Expect a lot of new and old EBM, elektro-wave and new beat influenced sounds. But as it is an open minded night anything with a dark beat could find its way to the floor from acid, and (early/dark) techno to elektro and industrial, as long as it’s fit for the dance floor.

ENFANT TERRIBLE is a Dutch independent record label for music and was founded in 2004. The focus is on electronic / experimental (pop) music in styles such as elektro-wave, (post-)techno and ambient. The Gooiland Elektro is known for putting out off-radar dance music and is loved by
dj’s around the world.

ÅTÅMÅTÅN is a Berlin based synth label, founded by Swedish Ella Moe. She was also part of the FlexiWave label and synth duo Colouroïd. The focus of åtåmåtån is to release limited vinyl editions made with love and a strong visual focus in tribute to the 80’s DIY scene. Hand folded, golden, risograph printed, numbered sleeve art and hand stamped or lettered labels. Sounds stretch from dark dreams to club rage.

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.
starting to perform solo in the last year, she’s half of the duo LAILA, playing guitar with artists like Sloppy Jane and Ryskinder, her shows gives a look into her own world.
a combination of songs both in english and hebrew, some instrumental, creating Ambient, Lo-fi, Mellow, Shoegaze with post punk influences.

her debut solo EP “One Winter, One Hunter” is going to be released on that day!

⊙ BIG ‡ BRAVE ⊙
Southern Lord Records
In existence since 2012 with members Robin Wattie, Mathieu Ball and Louis-Alexandre Beauregard spread across two guitars and drums respectively, BIG|BRAVE sound many magnitudes bigger than one would suspect a trio is capable of. Anticipation gracefully helps to build up every salvo launched by the band, assaulting the eardrum with incredible precision. Their compositions increasingly more refined, juxtaposing sparse minimalism with thunderous feedback, BIG|BRAVE strives to continue pushing the limits of what heavy experimental rock can sound like while maintaining a strong interest in reaching bliss.
Somewhere between the margins of a minimal rock band, experimental outfit and drone aficionados, BIG|BRAVE strives to never belong to anyone given classification. Utilising standard “band” tools such vocals, electric guitars, drums, feedback and amplifiers, B|B explores the possibilities of what a band can sound like while constantly resisting and deconstructing the archetypal characterisations of song structure and form.
Building spectacular, inverted rock constructions that sound many magnitudes bigger than one would suspect a trio was capable of, Montreal’s BIG|BRAVE has been in existence since 2012, with members spread across two guitars and drums respectively. Unhurried and untouchable, BIG|BRAVEpossess that same valued independent spirit which pervades their local contemporaries, and is at the root of their intense and exploratory musical offerings. Their sound lulls and lurches between passages of rhythmic noise pollution and vocal led awe, using considered juxtapositions of force and restraint to warp the senses. Remarkably quiet at times, their ambiance is not one of minimalism, but of dawning, foreboding power with the need to be vented, and when the hot flushes of blighted percussion and monochromatic guitar scrapes arrive, they arrive with triumphant force.

⊙ MY DISCO ⊙
Temporary Residence / Downwards Records
MY DISCO is an Australian music group that was formed between long term 2018 collaborators, Rohan Rebeiro, Benjamin Andrews, and Liam Andrews in 2003.
In 2003, MY DISCO performed their first shows in unconventional all-ages venues in Melbourne.
Late 2003 saw the release of their debut 7″ and marked their first Australian tour. The band soon became renowned for their arduous tour ethic, demonstrated in extensive tours to often far to reach destinations that included remote areas of Australia, Southeast Asia and Mexico.
The release of their debut album ‘Cancer’ in late 2006 marked a new level of emphasis on minimalism. More international and national tours were undertaken, including additional tours to the United States, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
Their second album ‘Paradise’ was recorded in Chicago, Illinois in 2007 with Steve Albini at his studio Electrical Audio. The album is noted as the band’s most refined and minimalist release, capturing their stentorian live sound, with several songs consisting of one note, repetitive single-sentence vocals and long- sustained guitar chords. Drum patterns, although minimal, still offer dance-like, disjointed beats.
2010 saw the release of a new single called “Young”, a limited edition 12″ released through Mistletone Records and re-issue through Blast First Petite, as a lead up to their third and forthcoming album.
2010 Saw the release of the band’s third and most diverse album, ‘Little Joy.’ Their first signing to NYC acclaimed label, Temporary Residence Limited.
2012 MY DISCO released another limited 12″, this time World Wide through Temporary Residence Ltd, entitled “Wrapped Coast.” The record features two extensive racks, with remixes by London’s Factory Floor, and Birmingham based noise-maker Justin Broadrick.
On International Record Store Day in 2013, the band put out a single on one of the World’s most acclaimed independent labels, Sub Pop records. It featured as the label’s 1000th release.
2014/15 saw the band put the finishing touches on their fourth studio album, entitled “Severe” and once again working with Producer and friend Cornel Wilzcek at Electric Dreams Studios in South Melbourne.

⊙ NONN ⊙
Fuzz Club Records
The debut from NONN was a stark collection of minimalistic post-punk that marked him as one of the most exciting outputs in the dark Scandinavian scene. After touring the record across Europe and recruiting a full band, the project is back with its second album, XVII, due for release December 7th on Fuzz Club.
Now more of a collaborative effort, with Hannes Nyling and Christian’s brother Alexander joining the fold, the new record deals in a fuller more refined sound and packs a far heftier punch. Where the self-titled debut was a restrained, minimalist affair, XVII opts for slabs of industrial electronics and hard-hitting percussion. The gloomy 80s sensibilities are still there – see the occasional Cure-esque guitars and morose gothic vocals – but on XVII, NONN turn their eyes more towards the electronic affliction of EBM and synth-punk than the polished, more-digestible post-punk that came reverberating out of the decade.
This shift in the band’s sound all boils down to having to reinvent the songs when taking them on the road following the release of their debut, which saw them tour the UK and mainland Europe and play at a number of festivals; from Liverpool Psych Fest and Fuzz Club Eindhoven to, more recently, Endless Daze in South Africa. “Since the last record we’ve been doing a lot of shows which gave us a lot of inspiration. We reworked the old songs to sound a bit fuller and more fun to play live. Having to reinvent all the sounds and instruments from the first album really inspired the direction on XVII,” Christian remarks.
It’s clear that taking the project on the road with a full-band has had a notable effect. Tracks like ‘Clear’, ‘Home’ and ‘Beyond’ see NONN shift their bleak, darkwave-inflected post-punk into something far richer. It’s still got that minimalistic feel and the ear-worm melodies are still there, but it’s more sinister and fleshed out. Though, what truly sets this album apart from the debut is where the band have delved deeper into their electronic side. The industrial stomp of album-opener ‘Pray’ declares the LP’s merciless intent without a guitar in sight; it’s a destructive cut of throbbing synths and desolate drum machine, underpinned by Christian’s monotonous vocals. Partner that with the sparse, haunting electronics of ‘Believe’ and the mechanical synth-punk of ‘Hide’ and it’s clear that NONN are at their best when truly embracing their deeply-cherished Moog Sub Phatty, using it to exorcise the many demons lurking beneath the noise.
