Musik   M:Soundtrack: New Dog (US /Kill Rock Stars) + TBC

Thursdays = Good Music
NEW DOG (US / KILL ROCK STARS) // The only thing better than teaching an old dog new tricks is having a new dog. Anar Badalov (of Metal Hearts and Travels) is New Dog, but “Classic Ballroom Dances” is no trick; this intimate and enthralling album is the next installment in the career of this promising young songwriter. Born in Baku, Azerbaijan in the 80s, Anar’s family immigrated to Baltimore, MD during the breakup of the Soviet Union. Anar grew up in Baltimore, starting his first band (Metal Hearts) there as a teenager in 2004 with schoolmate Flora Wolpert-Checknoff. Metal Hearts won fans in the press who saw possibilities for the future:



“….emotionally wrought electric guitar duos and twinned vocals that deflect off one another and swirl into ghostly harmonies…. meanders through such beautifully forlorn terrain with a stately grace”Baltimore City Paper“unexpected, intriguing touches.”Pitchfork   “multifaceted, assured debut”All Music“a record worth exploring for the character study of these two fascinating individuals alone.”Exclaim



In early 2007 Anar left Baltimore to live in Somerville, MA and start a new band with Mona Elliott (formerly of Victory at Sea) called Travels. Their recordings together generated more praise:



“Travels is an unpolished but compassionate gem of a pop album”Tiny Mix Tapes. “Warm, firm and reassuring, the song has all the qualities of a good hug”Spin.com






With the dissolution of Travels, Anar began working on his own for the first time.  “Classic Ballroom Dances,” like the first New Dog album “Lost Weekend,” was recorded alone in his apartment. Anar describes the process: “Not having someone to lean on, musically, is both terrifying and doubly rewarding. You work at your own pace, and set your own rules. My pace can be frantic sometimes, and I know that can annoy others, which is why I’ve learned to bring people in after the recordings are finished.”



The title was inspired by the poem of the same name by Yugoslavian poet Charles Simic. Simic has said that list poems like Classic Ballroom Dances are “the poetic equivalent of quilt-making.” Long before Anar read this poem or heard of the poet, this was the way he approached songwriting. “I’d like to think that at least a handful of songs on this album capture something like what Simic is talking about,” he says. Simic is one of Anar’s biggest influences. Others include Lee Hazlewood, Frank O’Hara, Mark Linkous, John Berryman, Raymond Carver, Anton Chekhov, Townes Van Zandt and guitarist Mick Turner.



Anar now also has a fine body of work to rely on.  “Classic Ballroom Dances,” with its strong songwriting and mature arrangements, has fulfilled the promise he showed in those early recordings in Baltimore.

Musik   thirsty & miserable: Mincer Ray (IndieLofiGarage//Bln) + Man Behind Tree (IndieNoisePop//Bln)

Mincer Ray: So two Americans realized how boring their lives were so they quit their jobs & flew to Berlin two weeks later. They met a Brazilian who liked Pavement way too much. 3 people = band. After stealing ideas from Neil Young, Fugazi, & GbV, the three decided each person should sing their own tunes, rotating instruments every song. Oh, & then a beautiful Swedish man joined the band **cough** **cough**


man behind tree sind eine indieband, die einflüsse der noisepop-tradition der späten achziger und frühen neunziger Jahre in ihren stücken verarbeitet. mehrstimmiger harmoniegesang, westcoast-gitarren-jangle und an die glasgower-c86-szene erinnerndes songwriting prägen den stil der band. die fünf musiker leben in berlin, haben 2011 ein erstes do-it-yourself-album aufgenommen und damit die berliner clubszene ausgiebig bespielt. im moment wird das zweite album abgemischt. es soll im laufe des jahres erscheinen. 'man behind tree' ist das hauptprojekt der jungs, die daneben auch in den bands 'the happy end', 'seaside stars', 'aeroclub', 'the monster bronsons' und 'the sealevel' mitwirken oder -wirkten.

Caudal is a Berlin-based 'trancepunk' trio made up of Aidan Baker (guitar), Gareth Sweeney (bass) on bass, & Felipe Salazar (drums).

>>>> Konzert

live! Knoblauch Klezmer Band + Miserlou

Einlass: 19 Uhr
Konzert: 20 Uhr (pünktlich, echt jetzt)
Party: 22 Uhr

>>>>> KNOBLAUCH KLEZMER BAND:
Founded in November 2011, the Knoblauch Klezmer Band is a young multi-cultural (Jewish, Scottish, German, French, Russian) musical storm based in Berlin. Knoblauch means Garlic in German, and the name is no coincidence or silly joke. Garlic, ''the Fruit of Love'', is full of smell, taste, spiciness, crunchiness and health. This is why it was chosen as the symbol of the band. The five musicians (clarinet, violin, accordion, double-bass and percussion) burst with energy on stage and use the music to break the walls of alienation so the audience could directly experience the spicy taste of the world.

>>>>> MISERLOU:
Eklektische Einflusssammler, unverbesserliche BalkanverehrerInnen, chronische Spieljunkies. Durch den 7/8-Takt geläuterte Trashpunks. Eher Hippie als Hipster. Schubladenvermeidende saxsüchtige Headbanger. Crosskulturelle Querverbinder. Neuköllner Balkanattacke. Klezmer meets Surf meets Punk. Skurille schwarzhumorige Texte. Mit einer Diskokugel wäre alles komplett….Eine Berliner Band mit ganz eigenem Musikstil und einem Namen der Programm ist.
Nicht nur der Song Miserlou ist durch alle möglichen Stile und Genres gewandert, auch wir wollen zwischen Welten wandern und uns dem Schubladendenken widersetzen. Von Oriental bis Balkan, Gypsy bis Klezmer, Afrobeat bis TexMex, Folk bis Punk, Berlin bis New Orleans, es ist alles dabei.Miserlou zieht los: kommt mit auf die Reise!
