MORIARTY - "Fugitives"-Tour 2015

Before Dylan, before Robert Zimmermann, there were ancestors, songwriters and bluesmen named Woody Guthrie, Hank Williams, Mississippi John Hurt, Blind Willie McTell.... There were songs, too, that were transmitted from generation to generation, without any known author or accurate origins.
Haunted by these ghosts and in the company of a few connoisseurs – Wayne Standley, Don Cavalli, Moriba Koïta & Mama Rosin – we have dug into this not-so-distant past to assemble this collection of songs at once archaic and modern, that together compose a tale of love and relinquishment, seduction and addiction, crimes of passion, revenge, and desperate escapes.
One will encounter a bevy of fugitives, murderous lovers and highwaymen, righters of wrongs, deserted wives and husbands hooked on booze and gambling, a gang of exploited cowboys, an adulterous and proud woman, a kinky candy vendor, an inconsolable widower...

HELMUT - Polymono

next hamburg show: 04.12.14 GOLEM - Hamburg --> tickets

"Focus on the right thing" - HELMUT sings on "MFYBUNCFM".
"Concentrate on what matters / whats important."
HELMUT leads us on, but he also leads us into the light. And what about that name. HELMUT. Capital letters, a monument, unshakeable. Old fashioned and dusty. And the music: Diaphanous, fragile, layered, at times searching and yet decisive, one point. Adrian Schull alias HELMUT takes his time, assembles loop after loop, combines unagitated vocals with minimal beats, rhythmic clips, handclaps and sometimes herbaceous guitar lines and shows us that diversions can also be short cuts on occasion. He concentrates on the essence, but rigorously refuses to wear blinkers. His loop-based songs open up space before they condense, align stringent and demanding beats with shimmering fragility and hit the proverbial nail on the head of what HELMUT's personal history is about: space for everything – in good time. No need to get pinned down.
His album POLYMONO has been released on Haldern Pop Recordings in early 2014 - together with producer Marius Bubat (COMA / Kompakt) HELMUT has taken his tracks apart and put them back together again, wrapped in electronic components. Sometimes the beats sound a little like Bitcrusher, another nuanced element in the clinking, whirring soundscape, breaking the organic overall picture without shattering it ...

Dorian Wood - Rattle Rattle
Proud to present:
DORIAN WOOD - this guy from California/USA is a musical whirlwind, a thunderstorm. He does theatre performances as well as intimate piano shows - reminding us very much of Anthony & the Johnsons by the way. But he can also be a crazy devil out of hell, a whiskey-built brother-in-mind of Tom Waits. Dorian Wood can play all kinds of musical facets and fragilities. In January/February 2014, Dorian will be touring in support of his latest album Rattle Rattle (newly released on vinyl by European label Atonal Industries). Rattle Rattle is an epic collection of original doomsday-themed songs that form one strong, continuous piece (think Scott Walker re-doing Brian Wilson's Smile). On the record he hosts guest musicians like Sebastian Steinberg (Fiona Apple), trumpet player Daniel Rosenboom (Josh Groban), violinist Paul Cartwright (Father John Misty) and also a 60 member choir!!

CocoRosie - Tales Of A GrassWidow

CocoRosie now introduce their fifth album Tales Of A GrassWidow, produced in collaboration with Icelandic composer Valgeir Sigurðsson and enriched by guest performances. Its a brave record, synthesizing electronic and organic sound to convey a futuristic, back-to-nature feeling. The sisters boldly tackle topics most wouldnt dare including child abuse, drawing parallels between the treatment of children, especially girls, as disposable and the destruction of the earths resources. Amongst the 11 tracks that weave together to create Tales of a GrassWidow is Gravediggress, whose recent release to the web saw CocoRosie warmly welcomed back by fans and critics alike.

OY - No Problem Saloon

Electronica with Jazz-Hip-Hop & melody snippets // african inflected

Berlin-based band OY is Swiss-Ghanaian vocalist & musician Joy Frempong and drummer & producer Lleluja-Ha. New record "No Problem Saloon" is a collection of colourful songs weaving OY's own strains of electronica, whirling drums and captivating & humorous storytelling, laced with distinctly African musical and lyrical elements, "No Problem Saloon" is driven by Joy's soulful, melodic and arrestingly versatile voice. Joy gathered elements for this unique album during a series of trips to Mali, Burkina Faso, Ghana and South Africa: the slam of a taxi door became a drum, an antiquated washing machine provided a bass sound, conversation and street noises started drifting in and out of the songs, and the lyrics were naturally developed from the stories and fragments of popular wisdom culled during these encounters.
This quasi-alchemical process worked wonders, and resulted in a mesmerizing and thoroughly engaging album, which OY have managed to masterfully transpose to the stage, as their exhilarating, dynamic live show has already electrified crowds at prestigious events such as Transmusicales, Les Eurockéennes, Sonar, SXSW, Montreux Jazz and more. .
