Musik M:Soundtrack: and the Wireman (US) + Dominik Gerwald (Yasmine Tourist/Goldrausch Records)
And The Wiremen (US) // is a Brooklyn-based ensemble led by songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Lynn Wright. As the primary songwriter and lyricist, he specifically works and collaborates with core members Paul Watson (Sparklehorse) on trumpet, Tony Maimone (Pere Ubu) on bass, and longtime partner in crime Jon Petrow (Cloudroom) on guitar (with whom Wright also shares time in another laudable Brooklyn-ba...sed outfit, Bee and Flower). The experience, ingenuity, and craft this collection of musicians brings to the table is further enhanced by their collective willingness to defy genre. They are improvisatory, whimsical, and pleasurably good at leaving a listener playing a song-to-song guessing game. At times heavily Latin-influenced--with strokes of cumbia and an underpinning of Colombian and Brazilian percussion--these songs comfortably move into jazz, avant-pop, or blues--sometimes within the same number--despite a deceptive minimalist approach to song structures. Lyrically, Wright is cogent, funny, and literate; a virtuoso, really. He has a knack for catchy one-liners (hardly throwaways) and passages that sound indebted to some wily trident of Faulkner, South American Surrealism and film noir--aspects which combine to push both the music and Wright's smooth, cool-as-a-cucumber delivery into the lofty realms of fable. - Pete Simonelli (Enablers)|
Dominik Gerwald (D) ist Frontmann und Songschreiber der Stuttgarter Band YASMINE TOURIST.
Seine Musik brachte ihn bereits durch ganz Europa, nach New York und in Vorgärten deutscher Schlagerproduzenten. Jedenfalls: er bringt seine Lieblingsgitarre mit und spielt Songs seiner Band und Songs, die er für sich behalten hat. Das klingt mal alt, mal neu, mal geborgt, mal blau. Aber immer nach ihm http://www.yasminetourist.com
Musik ZEBU (NYC ) + TBA
|Thursdays =Good Music|
ZEBU! (US) // was founded at Hampshire College in 2003/4. The powerhouse duo of Ted Lee (No Sound, Egg Eggs) and Steve D'Agostino (The Wild) create improvisational surf noise punk that defies the logic of rational musical creation. Originally called "Professor Fishface and the Fuckfaces", ZEBU! crafted its sound among the jam bands and stoned minds of a educationally vapid institution. Striving to reach great musical heights, the band has released 16 recordings that run the range of noise explosions to rock and roll classics. The band has shared the stage with such diverse musicians as The Mammals, Screaming Females, Gary Wilson, Laura Stevenson and the Cans, Exits to Freeways, The Can Kickers, etc.
Ted lives in Easthampton!
Steve lives in Atlanta!
We just recently finished our third tour of Germany that featured our playing at the LA PAMPA FESTIVAL.
You can see footage of some of those performances on you tube!
Ted Lee is the founder of the wonderful Feeding Tube Records, which releases ZEBU! to the world.
you can find the music at (www.feedingtuberecords.net) or visit the store at 90 King Street to stop up on all your favorites. http://ubez.tumblr.com
Musik M:Soundtrack: BJÖRN KLEINHENZ (SWE) + Pete Thompson (Swe)
BJÖRN KLEINHENZ (SWE) + Pete Thompson (Swe)|
on JUNE 1st 2013 @ 8 p.m.
Björn Kleinhenz // is a swedish independent mucisian.
He was born in southern Germany in the summer of 1981 but moved at an early age to Sweden where he has lived since. After growing up playing punk and hardcore in the small southern town of Sölvesborg he set off as a solo artist around his 20th year and has since then been a highly productive record artist and performer.
Björns debut album came out in 2003 and in the same year he played his first shows abroad, in Germany and Austria. He has since then had a love affair with the german speaking countries and the shows are so many one does not quite have the energy to count any longer. Six albums have been released together with over ten other releases in different formats.
In 2011 the album Djago Bråk came out and early in 2012 a collaboration project with photograher Simon Rydén for which Björn recorded a collection of nine songs. When Björn does not make music or tour he likes to read Thomas Bernhard, Sture Dahlström, Nicole Krauss and Alice Munro. At present his hero is Stephen Fry and he has for a long time found it hard to decide wether Filippo Tommaso Marinetti is a genius or an idiot.
Pete Thompson // is a Swedish country/folk/rock band. Simple songs, love songs, sad songs, loud songs and the blues.
We make music for our own pleasure but we hope that someone listens, who wants to be alone?
In the fall of 2013 we release our debut album "I" on JellyFant Schallplatten.
