There’s a special vibe in the air that Friday evening close to 9 o’ clock at Brooklyn’s Union Pool, a pretty popular hangout and pick-up spot especially in the Summer time with its spacious backyard, romantic lighting, outdoors bar and taco truck (not necessarily in that order). Among the usual weekend crowd were music[…]
Bandit is a three piece from Nashville, fronted by singer and guitarist Angela Plate. Losing in a Sense is a slow-burning track guided by heavy guitars and I can hear quite a bit Fools-era Warpaint in it.
This year I want to have a closer watch at what’s going on musically Germany. I’ve already mentioned DENA a few weeks ago. She’s originally from Bulgaria, but lives in Berlin and brings somehow a German angle to pop music. Her new song Another Love is catchy and I’m looking[…]
January… not only the beginning of a new year, but also pretty much about time to get familiar with the bands who will be playing this year’s South By South West music festival in Austin, Texas which after all is only a mere 10 weeks away from today! And while listening[…]
Låpsley is from Liverpool, 18 years old and signed to XL Recordings. Falling Short is a good song that maybe fits a little to well into what is currently hip in electronic pop music. Låpsley just released her EP The Understudy.
The music world 2014 ended with a heated discussion about the business model of the future and if the meager payouts by streaming services have the potential to kill music by new artists. On the other hand, one only has to go to SXSW or CMJ to see how much[…]
The first show I’ve attend this year, was by the US band Feathers playing Mercury Lounge, the night when the polar vortex occurred. Only a few days AFTER that show, Feathers were touring Europe, opening for Depeche Mode (more info on The Delta Machine Tour here). And so it is more than fitting to[…]
The following songs are not to be found on our Top 10 lists published earlier (Oliver’s 10 to 6 & 5 to 1 and Elke’s 10 to 6 & 5 to 1) because we either didn’t like the whole album enough to put it into our Top 10 or the song[…]
This video is just a lot of fun, especially for us, who have passed this passed this street corner dozens of times. Kiesza is from Canada, but she chose to film this clip on N 12th and Kent in Williamsburg, which is very close to Output and a some of[…]
Every year, after the top ten list is out of the door, I discover more music that should have been on there. Maybe. Anyway, it’s too late to change the list, but still time for writing about an album I love more with every listen. Twin Sister added the “Mr.”[…]
In the Summer of 1999, still living in Munich, Germany and not thinking (yet) of moving anywhere else, I’ve attended the Southside Festival where on Day 1 Massive Attack and on Day 2 Marilyn Manson were headlining. Also on Day 1, a back then still fairly unknown band from the UK played,[…]
Most of the times, I buy an album after a live show, directly from the artist. At other times, I enjoy browsing a store like Rough Trade New York, and occasionally, I order an album, especially when it comes with a limited offer like Korallreven’s newest album. On their Facebook page,[…]
We’ll spend a lot of time at sea over the holidays, so I was thinking about music with a nautical theme. Turns out, there’s nothing among my favorites. So I chose a record which I find ideal for looking at the ocean: Asura’s Life^2, released in 2007. Asura is a[…]
This article in the 3IsABand series could be as well in the Live Soundtrack series, since it’s quite the “Throwback Thursday”, given the fact that the band’s first studio album came out in 1996. I picked the CD up at the Times Square Virgin Mega Store on my trip to[…]
