Almost nine years to the day since the release of their first, self-titled EP, LSD and the Search for God dose us once again with their blissful new EP, Heaven Is a Place—out January 15, 2016, on Deep Space Recordings and Mind Expansion!

In the time between LSD records the band remained busy writing, recording, and performing, with this EP capturing a snapshot in time soon after the additions of Ryan Lescure and Ricky Maymi (Brian Jonestown Massacre). They've been perfecting their lucid live show up and down the U.S. West Coast and on tours across the U.S. and Canada, including sets at Austin Psych Fest Levitation (2013), Bathysphere (2013) with A Place To Bury Strangers, and Desert Stars Festival (2014) with The Dandy Warhols.

LSD twice toured the U.S. with legendary Creation Records band The Telescopes, with Liszt, Fifield, and Maymi doing double-duty each night, performing as members of both LSD and The Telescopes. This collaboration led to The Telescopes’ recording project in Los Angeles that resulted in two records: the acclaimed EP, Harm (Neon Sigh 2014), and a 7” single, Thrown (Genjing Records 2015).


“Amongst the ranks of the lo-fi psychedelic circle, we present you with another outstanding band from Guadalajara, Mexico.” – Hologram Skies

Has a Shadow release their new album Sky is Hell Black on November 12th on Captcha Records. “Sky is Hell Black” will be available on limited edition LP and digital download. It was recorded through the winter of 2012 in Mexico City, in a house where Remi used to live as a child. Alberto Gonzalez (Beto or “The Obsolete” from Mexican psych duo Lorelle Meets the Obsolete) was responsible for recording and mixing. The band just completed their first tour of the west coast of the USA. Expect to see Has A Shadow hitting US soil again in early 2014.

Sky is Hell Black hits you with a wall of sound that emanates from the darkest corners of the Mexican interior. Listening to this album is like being shrouded in a veil of fog at the moment a massive storm takes over a barren metropolis. The experience of drone gets charged with anticipation when you realize that the storm is about to hit.

Victor “Remi” Garay plays the bass, Rodolfo Samperio plays guitar, and Daniel Garciano plays guitar and electric organ in addition to providing the vocals. The Obsolete plays drums for the album and contributed guitar tracks to some of the songs.

They have hooked up with Captcha Records, “one of the finest experimental / psych labels around” according to Weed Temple. Captcha has brought you the debut records of Lorelle Meets the Obsolete, onYou, GA’AN, and Dreamsalon in addition to working with Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall, Phil Cohran and Eddy Current Suppression Ring.

This album is recommended if you like Rowland S. Howard, Dark Mountain Echo, Cult of Dom Keller and Dead Moon.

The bands forthcoming new single 'Strawberry Moon' was recorded in the summer of 2016 in Berlin at Funkhaus Studios. The first single from thier upcoming sophomore album 'Searching for the Strawberry Moon'.
The idea of bringing strings and guitars together came from sixties pioneers such as The Beatles and The Velvet Underground. Strawberry Moon is the bands first studio recording with string arrangements, a showcase of the duo's ever evolving sound to come.

doors open at 7 p.m. *Come early as the fun may just start at 7:30 and you do not want to miss it .. the aftershow TBA

>>> It's been four years since we last heard from Martin Hasselgren aka Boy Omega and now he's finally back! On sep 23rd the new (seventh) album "Full Moon Mantra" will be released and on sep 29th Boy Omega will play live at Schokoladen. This will also be the first Boy Omega Berlin-show in 3,5 years so don't miss out!

Boy Omega (Swe)
is the superhero moniker and roof under which Swedish multi-instrumentalist Martin Henrik Hasselgren collects his songs and visuals.

Boy Omega’s unique brand of experimental but yet very melodic elektropop is at once fragile, vibrant and wholehearted, and has drawn comparison to the likes of Sufjan Stevens, Elliott Smith, Sparklehorse, Panda Bear, The Cure, Björk and Xiu Xiu to name a few.

Since he began writing songs under the Boy Omega moniker in 2002, Hasselgren has put out an impressive, rich body of work, including five full length albums, two compilations, four eps, and numerous singles.

Over the last decade, Boy Omega has played tons of shows all over Europe and shared stages with the likes of Isobel Campbell, Great Lake swimmers, Califone, Christian Kjellvander, Maria Taylor, The Hidden Cameras, to name a few. Hasselgren is also a member of the bands Tu Howl and Kubot.

Petula and Kid Ikarus
join forces again. Like they always do near the end of September. They have to. They were born for this. Expect new ideas and old fan favorites, expect sweet tea and bitter tears. Expect loops and beeps and apes and tapes. These are good people.

DULAC /// post-punk, ger /// "Dulac, mittlerweile von Frankfurt nach Berlin übergesiedelt, haben vor 2 Jahren ihr starkes Debüt-Album via TAKEN BY SURPRISE RECORDS & Twintoe Records an den Mann gebracht. Der Sound liefert nach wie vor eine gute Mische aus Garage, 77er, Postpunk und Powerpop den man sich aus Nuancen der Wipers, Jawbreaker, Observers zusammenschraubt und mit deutlich mehr Eigenständigkeit versieht als viele Genre-Kollegen." ///

BIG EATER /// freak funk gospel/post-punk soul, bln /// "Big Eater is not a band, proclaims no ideology, and is not a state of mind. Musically influenced by James Brown, the Supremes and the Minutemen, performing with the paleolithic punk rock spirit of forty thousand years ago. Furious live show guaranteed." "Big Eater sind eine bunt zusammengewürfelte Truppe mit Punkrock-Hintergrund, die das vielgehasste Wort “Groove” für sich entdeckt haben, und rauhen, aber nicht rumpligen Funk-Punk mit schweißigem MC5-Feeling zelebrieren. Eher eine Zeremonie denn ein Punkkonzert, eher Bein statt Oberarm, eher sehr gut denn gut." ///

after the show: dj/anes alex plush anders (punk/glam/wave) + bettibobikepunk (garage/beat/soul) + frau müller + more.

mutiny on the bountydoors 19:00 - show 20:00
the antikaroshi

Groovende Rhythmen, Gitarrenakrobatik und wilde Liveshows sind Wörter die einem unwiderruflich in den Sinn kommen, wenn man an MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY denkt.

Luxemburgs Finest haben ihren einzigartigen Sound sowohl auf Touren mit Künstlern wie AND SO I WATCH YOU FROM AFAR, TTNG und MAPS & ATLASES und Support-Shows für BIFFY CLYRO, RUSSIAN CIRCLES oder THE FALL OF TROY unter Beweis gestellt, als auch auf einigen der größten Festivals, wie dem Roskilde und dem Primavera. Ihr letztes Album 'Trials' (erschienen 2012) wurde in Seattle mit Produzent Matt Bayles aufgenommen und markierte die Abkehr von ihren früheren Arbeiten.

Nachdem sie sich im Februar 2014 mit Produzent Jan Kerscher einen Monat lang in einem Studio in Deutschland verschanzt haben, ist das Ergebnis MUTINY ON THE BOUNTYs neues Album 'Digital Tropics', das neue Aspekte ihrer musikalischen Identität offenbart; düsterer, grooviger und mit einem gestiegenen Einsatz elektronischer Elemente.

Repräsentiert durch die erste Single 'MKL JKSN', veröffentlicht im März, und begleitet von einer beachtlichen Anzahl an Shows in Clubs und auf Festivals während des gesamten Jahres 2015, wird 'Digital Tropics' als CD, LP und Download am 22. Mai 2015 auf Redfield Records veröffentlicht.
