Musik   Lofi Lounge präsentiert: SEDLMEIR (Rockn´Roll/Berlin) + John David Hull (Indie/Berlin) + Marine (Indie/UK)
DJ Team Berg and Tal (Indie, Elektro, Pop)

Melodien sind sein Leben Der Antiheld des Rockenroll zögert sein Comeback immer weiter hinaus. Kein Wunder, denn er fühlt sich noch immer zu jung für eine feste Beziehung mit dem Showgeschäft.
Denn offen soll diese Beziehung sein, so offen wie Sedlmeir selbst: Was als enges Minimal-Korsett mit Gitarre, Drumcomputer und Synthesizer-Häppchen daher kommt entpuppt sich beim zweiten hingucken als eigenständiger Kosmos mit schier unendlichen Möglichkeiten. „Der einzige Mann von dem Elvis noch etwas hätte lernen können.“ (Vice Magazin) <file:///http::/> aktuelle Videos: SOMMER IN <> BERLIN DINGER <> <> 20 MARK


David started his musical life after careers in Football and electronics. 1986 found him playing double bass for various folk and busking bands. Started playing in Naklada a art rock band in 1993. Solo in 1995 and 6 albums later, and all of a sudden we are seeing the release of the album "Wrap them Up": that got the attention of Gideon Coe of BBC 6. His style is becoming more and more folky always with a progressive edge.


“With a soulful, powerful blend of intricate guitar parts and dextrously interwoven vocals, London-based all-female outfit M A R I N E are rather special.

The band first sparked into being in the summer of 2012 when Ruby Jack and Cara Sebastian sat in the warm glow of a campfire. They soon realised their shared longing to move away from the stripped-back arrangements of the folk scene towards something more electric.

Lyrics incorporate personal themes (such as panic attacks and early deaths) while also touching on the mythological. The first EP is due for release in November. Recorded at The Grand Chapel studios just outside London.” Rebecca Davies – Drunken Werewolf Magazine

Musik   thirsty & miserable: The History Of Colour TV (shoegaze/bln) + Unshaped Ahead (loop electronic/gr)
doors: 19.00 // start: 20.00

Starting out as a conceptual audio-visual project, The History Of Colour TV was created by Jaike Stambach in early 2010. After relocating to Berlin and releasing a string of cassette-only experimental EPs and videos, the project soon evolved into a full band line-up. The music underwent a slow but radical change, gradually incorporating dark, dreamy pop and abrasive electronic soundscapes. Their latest record Shapes Of Spilt Blood Spelt Love has just been released.

aka Dimos Vryzas is based on minimal melodies. Violin loops,ambient atmosphere,storytelling and improvisation...

Musik   Lofi Lounge präsentiert: Call Me Cleo (Pop/Rock/Groove)
DJ Monophonic (Indie, Electro, Pop)
Call Me Cleo

has a powerful, dark, groovy and energetic sound. The band has spent most of its time together creating and recording and is now ready to throw itself out there!Being the mastermind behind it all leadsinger Susanne Folk „Cleo“ personifies a kind of modern Cleopatra: „I find that the imagery has been snaking its way through my music all along, the visual aspect underlining my magestical and ambiguous songs. While based on my own true feelings my songs are never meant autobiographically, they tell stories and play with imagery that is far greater than myself...“ But the real epiphany of it all lies in a song which title is the bandname itself and will leave people scratching their chins a little less after having heard it.

Determined drum beats, distorted basslines and a wide sound spectrum from the keys mingle with the recognizable warm and dark female voice.

Unique grooves underline the imagery-filled lyrics and the way the instrumental parts contain woodwinds might actually lead to one of Cleo´s missions to succeed: to help stabilize the saxophone as a wanted instrument in popular music throughout the course of the 21st century!

Musik   little league shows and thirsty & miserable present: GREYS (noise rock/indie punk, can) + I HAVE NO MOUTH AND I MUST SCREAM (shoegaze, bln)
GREYS are a loud rock band from Toronto. ///
I HAVE NO MOUTH AND I MUST SCREAM is a shoegaze/post-punk band from Berlin. ///

Greys /// "There are plenty of other adjectives one could associate with the Greys: Caustic. Brash. Noisy. Abrasive. Dissonant. Melodic. Sarcastic. Explosive. It’s immediately apparent that the young quartet graduated from the School Of Noise Rock, Class Of ‘93, and their professors were guys like Reis, Denison, MacKaye and Cobain. So have many others, sure, but where Greys differentiate themselves is their economic distillation of those lessons into a funhouse mirror reflection of punk rock. The band was formed in 2011 over a mutual appreciation for huge guitars and mathy rhythms. Three EPs in as many years saw them rapidly growing both as players and performers, whittling their sound down to a sharp edge over 100,000 kilometers worth of DIY shows across North America. Greys released their debut album, If Anything on Buzz Records (CAN) and Carpark Records on June 17, 2014."

I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream /// "is a shoegaze / post-punk band from Berlin. IHNMAIMS took their band name from a dystopian science fiction short story about survivors of a nuclear war. Musical influences include The Cure and My Bloody Valentine as well as fellow Berlin bands The History of Colour TV, BraBraBra, Skiing and Jolly Goods, with whom they share current or former band members. They have released an EP on cassette tape in 2012 and recently finished recording their debut album."

Musik   thirsty & miserable: Fiium Shaarrk (experimental Jazz/Art Rock, London/Berlin) + Schick/Steidle (Drums n Turntable-Noise, Berlin)
doors 19:00 - start 20:00

Maurizio Ravalico - percussion, Rudi Fischerlehner - drums, Isambard Khroustaliov - electronics

"Fiium Shaarrk’s debut album, No Fiction Now!, is a tour de force of intense, dynamic percussion, cerebral dance influenced rhythms and vivid, colourful electronica. No Fiction Now! is a fascinating and visionary collision between the fragile, visceral textures of Warp electronica legends such as Autechre and Aphex Twin, the groove led, percussively dynamic explorations of boundary pushing rock acts such as Battles and Health and the wayward, maverick intensity of 20th century composers such as Xenakis and StockhausenFiium Shaarrk use rhythms from across the world, from dubstep to maracatu, jungle to house, and fuse seemingly disparate influences into a rich tapestry of modern, drum led electronica.

Akin to the world beat, post jazz musings of fellow experimentalists Four Tet and Caribou, the music of Fiium Shaarrk is simultaneously hypnotic, engaging, beguiling and danceable. No Fiction Now! is one of the most significant albums of its kind of the last decade. "

In collaboration with rewire Festival Den Haag and On the Corner Records London Fiium Shaarrk released a preview track for a new EP coming soon in 2015:

The logical heir to a ‘Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster’, a ‘Bogan Sunrise’ is a 21st century update to the now familiar protocol of “having your brains smashed in by a slice of lemon wrapped round a large gold brick”. The update offers, amongst other things a complete rewiring of the users audio cognition engine. From here on in, those partaking in a ‘Bogan Sunrise’ will experience the phenomena of ‘funk’, ’swing’ and ’tonality’ calibrated to more malleable human / computational paradigms than were previously deemed possible. Users have spoken of experianceing an 'event horizon' where the digital and the organic fuse into a multiverse whose conjunction with our current reality is at best prototypical. If these accounts are to be believed there is clearly more to our sonic universe than the numerous ‘Newspeak’ impresarios would have you settle for. ‘Bogan Sunrise’ is undoubtedly one of the the cocktails needed to get you there. Drink responsibly.


"... tom-drumming trance states ... exploding upwards and outwards into new corners of noise... Exhilarating!"
The Wire, October 2012

"…we were instantly treated to the sensation of having our bodies invaded by thousands of infinitely complex machine insects. It's rare that a band can have such an instant and disquieting effect, but Fiium Shaarrk's music, we discovered, is as unusual as their name in many ways. (…) They are one of the very few acts I've ever seen who can rival Autechre for inhumanly strange synaesthesic noise-making, but extremely distinctive too: an exciting proposition all round."
Joe Muggs, the arts desk (Live Review)

"…we’re talking, or rather tuned into Fiium Shaarrk, and they just so happen to comprise two of the finest percussionists I’ve seen here or indeed anywhere (…) They’re wholly worth watching."
Josh Holliday, Dots and Dashes (Live Review)

"... verdammt gute Musik."
Freistil, Oktober 2012

"... am besten wohl als Post-World-Beat zu bezeichnen ... Fiium Sharrrk liefert mit »No Fiction Now!« den in diesem frischen Genre bislang griffigsten, überzeugendsten Eintrag ab." 
Curt Cuisine, Skug, Oktober 2012

"A prodigious and intense exercise in electro-percussive nu-jazz improvisation that’s both puzzling and mesmerizing ... it seeks to challenge a listener’s normal interpretations of what music is and how it should sound."
DIY magazine, September 2012

"Hé! Belle surprise, ce disque!"
Monsieur Delire, October 2012

ignaz schick - turntables
oli steidle - drums
