Musik little league shows presents: TOTAL HEELS (soul-garage-punk, bklyn/cph) + ZELF (mathy indie/post-punk, bln)
|TOTAL HEELS /// "Lyrically dense, musically familiar, totally out of touch. New garage punk from Copenhagen via Brooklyn. It's back alley soul for lovers and expats, junkies and romantics worldwide. It's not complicated." ..."TOTAL HEELS is still the city's best kept secret. Three Danes and one American arrived fully formed last summer, sounding like the Stooges fronted by George Clooney. Word spread. Shows with Cheap Time, The Men, Crystal Stilts and a personal invite from Ty Segall followed. What started proudly casual in this ridiculously fertile Danish scene ended with a mess of European shows and two sold out singles before the New Year." /// http://www.totalheels.com/|
Zelf /// "... seem to have popped up fully formed as a four-piece with more post-punk hooks and indie sensibility than any band has managed to carry off in Berlin in recent times. With a classic two guitars, bass and drums line-up fronted by female vocals, these kids keep it tight with bass and drums allowing the guitars and vocals to take over always at the right moment and it's Lisa von Billerbeck's singing that adds that special something to this bands sound..." /// http://zelf.bandcamp.com/https://www.facebook.com/events/799797683416783/
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. /// greysband.tumblr.com/|
I HAVE NO MOUTH AND I MUST SCREAM is a shoegaze/post-punk band from Berlin. /// nomouth.net/wp/
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."
