Ronley Teper

Ronley Teper's Lipliners began as a monthly residency at the legendary Tranzac club in Toronto. Teper invited a rotating roster of some of Toronto's finest musicians, animators, and video artists to publicly improvise around her songs and storytelling. This process has developed a body of work that touches on a wide range of stylistic influences from folk, funk, jazz, cinematic, theatric comedy and pop music and that listeners compare to artists like Tom Waits, Mary Margaret O'Hara, Frank Zappa, and Kate Bush.

Ronley was born in South Africa and grew up in Toronto. A musician and performance artist, she has been an active member in the arts scene for almost two decades. Over this time, she has recorded 5 independent LP's; composed, and performed works for puppet theatre in both Summerworks and Fringe Festivals in Toronto and Montreal; she has had musical placements in television, documentary films, advertising, and a few video games. In early 2010, she was invited as a guest speaker at the first TEDx talks in Bangkok, Thailand, and took the opportunity to organize vocal improvisation music workshops for middle school children in International Schools and to perform throughout the country. Since then Teper has participated in a variety of collaborations and artist's residencies from Reykjavik, Iceland, to Guadalajara, Mexico both performing and exhibiting works.

 

Ronley Teper

Children at heart who love comedic, poetic, theatric, yet at times serious storytelling alongside truly magical music, should prepare themselves for the surprising world of Ronley Teper and The Lipliners. The Lipliners began over a decade ago as a monthly residency in Toronto. Teper invited a rotating roster of some of Toronto’s finest musicians and then internationally to publicly improvise around her storytelling. This process has developed a body of work that press have compared to artists including Tom Waits, Mary Margaret O’Hara, Captain Beefheart, and Laurie Anderson.

What is a Ronley Teper and The Lipliners show like? Well Every show is different, Generally 3 or more musicians make up the core of a regular Lipliners show. Each show however is unique depending on the improvisors involved that day. For this upcoming tour in Europe Ronley will be accompanied by Pavel Cingl (CZ) violin/guitar and Tim Posgate (CA) banjo/guitar, with a rotating roster of guest improvisors joining throughout the tour in different cities. There are no rehearsals, with many of the works created right on the spot with Teper conducting and leading through vocals and storytelling, guitar and other toys.

"Performance is the key to understanding Ronley Teper. A multidisciplinary artist who's bounced around the Toronto scene since the early oughts, live performance, often improvised, is the tie that binds her many phases and iterations.” Now Magazine.

"Her hilarious lyrics are paired with theatrical vocal delivery, ranging from her high, squeaky, little-girl voice to a low, throaty growl. It's territory not commonly explored by female singers” Exclaim! Magazine

“The One and Ronley. Canadian Indie-singer/songwriter Ronley Teper has a unique sound that defies comparison with anyone, just saying she's got some freaky stuff happening melodically and sings like a wild thing, doesn't really prepare you for what you are about to hear". Swerve Magazine

“Ronley is a superfreak...I really like her music and her overall vibe." Jaymz Bee - Jazz FM

City At Dark - Record Release Show
Aftershow: DJ HunkyDory & Alex Plush Anders

Nach der stürmischen „Hunt Like Lions“ EP (veröffentlicht November 2017 auf 8MM Musik) veröffentlichen City At Dark (ex-RÁN) nun ihr Debüt-Album über die neue Labelheimat Snowhite (Zoot Woman, The Sounds, Oum Shatt). Das in Berlin ansässige Duo setzt seinen ebenso künstlerischen wie derzeit wohl einzigartigen Pop-Entwurf gezielt fort.

Das mit spielerischer Brillanz und lasziver schwarzweiß Ästhetik aufwartende Duo - bestehend aus der Wiener Künstlerin Laura Landergott (Ja, Panik) und dem aus Tel Aviv stammenden Gitaristen Yair Karelic (Mystical Communication Service) - zieht den Hörer sowohl mit seinen bewusst reduzierten Beat- und Track Arrangements, den zahlreichen atmosphärischen Soundschichten, als auch der ausufernden Gitarren-Virtuosität stetig in seinen Bann. Wer die beiden bereits live, wie zuletzt beim Reeperbahn und Fusion Festival, erleben konnte, weiß um das sich umgarnende Zusammenspiel eines ungleichen und doch perfekt harmonisierenden Band-Paares, welches sich mit nahezu amouröser Leidenschaft instinktiv in den Tiefen ihrer Songs und Lyrics zu verlieren droht. Stets am Limit, bereit zum Experiment. Ihre musikalische Vision zelebrieren sie nun in zehn Songs. Hier treffen urbaner Pop auf zeitgenössischen Postpunk, Dark Wave auf Psychedelic Rock. Produziert wurde das Album zusammen mit Dirk Feistel (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club) im Studio X in Berlin.

——————————————————————————
Point No Point is the latest musical project of sonic and lyrical adventurer Jana Sotzko (Soft Grid, The Dropout Patrol and many others). Drift is the first LP, six tracks of dense, rich and sonically adventurous music from Sotzko who can surely by now be dubbed one of the most original music composers working in Berlin today.

White Hand Gibbon is the solo project of Dominik Jureschko, who also plays in I Drew Blank. Since 2014 he's released off-kilter, folky dream-pop, which at first glance seems fragmentary, owing perhaps to the incorporation of field recordings, ambient passages and a certain bedroom-recording aesthetic. On second listening though, his new album "Songs About Cars" (Späti Palace) exposes itself as a lyrically aswell as musicially accomplished and intimate softcore-emo album, placing it somewhere between The Postal Service and the soundtrack of the film "Drive".

Floppi Disk Re-Release Abend! (Froggi Records)

JUMP & RUN
Nepumuk (alias knowsum von Luk&Fil, Sichtexot) und Ruff Tuff Tuff (alias Johannes Lauxen of knertz fame) bezeichnen sich selbst als zwei falsche Fuffziger. Dass beim Hantieren mit Beatgerätschaft und Mikrofon bei diesen beiden ein extrem echter Hunderter rauskommt haben sie wahrscheinlich von Anfang an selbst geahnt. Alchemie! Die Produktion dreckig, futuristisch, soulful, genau richtig schief und im wunderschönsten Gleichgewicht zwischen 'Vintage' und Weitergedacht. Die Texte ... was soll man sagen? Die sind einfach besonders ... aber "besonders? was is'n das für'n wort überhaupt ... besonders?" Selbst hören und auf dem Dada-Schaukelpferd mitreiten bitte!
Die erste Jump & Run MC »musik ist sich egal« kam 2015 über das lovely Knertz Kollektiv und erfreute Kennerherzen in Hinterstübchen all überall. Froggi Records freut sich aufs Äußerste, euch nun die 2. Auflage des Floppi Disk Releases "Theme Song"  präsentieren zu können. Shit is the bomb!

GRIMÉNY:

Permanent disappointment makes every musical particle a true 'Enttäuschung'.
Their music sprinkles the listeners front-side with the firmed sound of space spalling and wrung out measures, diffuse emotions and witty psyche.

GAFFA GHANDI:
One force, to split the earth, to divorce your parents, to transform the liberal patience of your isolated world into a dance of joyfully delayed destruction.

M:Soundtrack presents a great evening with our friends at Sinnbus Records!

 featuring Odd Beholder (Sinnbus/Schweiz) + We Will Kaleid + DJ Sinnbus

 

"Ich habe den Eindruck, wir haben ein seltsames Pop-Album aufgenommen, das bunt ist und nachdrücklich. Und das sich mit den eigenartigen Versuchungen unserer Zeit befasst - von Tinder zu KI, von Offline-Einsamkeit zu obsessiver Selbstvermarktung."

Odd Beholder, das Projekt der in Zürich lebenden Musikerin Daniela Weinmann, veröffentlicht sein Debüt-Album "All Reality Is Virtual". In den detailreichen aber präzise formulierten Stücken arbeitet Weinmann weiter an ihrer Version umarmender Electronica und melancholischer Popmusik. Wie auch auf den zwei bisher veröffentlichten EPs ist die Musik von ein Ausdruck von Enfremdung. Im Zentrum von Odd Beholder führt die Künstlerin akribisch Buch über die Merkwürdigkeiten der Welt um sie herum und adressiert diese in ruhigen und doch dringlichen Worten.

english:

"I have the impression that we recorded a strange pop album, which is colourful and insistent. And which is about the strange temptations of our time - from Tinder to AI, from offline solitude to obsessive self-marketing."

Odd Beholder, the project of Zurich-based musician Daniela Weinmann, releases its debut album "All Reality Is Virtual". In the detailed but precisely articulated pieces Weinmann continues to work on her version of embracing electronica and melancholic pop music. The music, as on the two EPs released so far, is an expression of alienation. In the centre of Odd Beholder the artist meticulously keeps record of the curiosities of the world around her and addresses them in calm yet urgent words.

"All Reality Is Virtual' started by thinking about how much time I spend online. And in particular, on what," Weinmann reports. As a musician, especially in pop music, she has to look after her social media channels. And she is certain that she would not have any account on any platform if she were not an artist. "I have never learned to feel safe in an environment consisting only of images and words. Especially in an environment where, at least theoretically, everything I do and say is always and everywhere in the whole world accessible and observable, in which my traces will never disappear". As an introverted person, she can't understand how anyone can deal with it without compulsion.

we will kaleid // Die Band we will kaleid erschafft sich eine Welt, in der sowohl Pop, als auch experimentelles seinen Platz findet. Melancholische Texte treffen auf moderne Drumgrooves und Elektronik, die durch eigenwillige Arrangements und Sounds ihren ganz eigenen Charakter bekommen.

Die „Sangesfreunde Martinsviertel“ haben keine Goldkehlchen, aber den Lautstärkeregler auf Zehn. Traditionelles Liedgut ist nicht das Ding des alternativen Chors. Der bunte Haufen aus Darmstadts quirligem Martinsviertel pflegt mit seinen Laienstimmen eher Songs subkultureller Bauart: Sie schmettern Punknummern der DEAD KENNEDYS oder von BAD RELIGION, grölen Metallhymnen von PANTERA oder SYSTEM OF A DOWN oder huldigen Indieperlen von PJ HARVEY, FEIST oder den TALKING HEADS. Mit ihren dynamischen Auftritten auf Festivals, Theaterbühnen, der Straße oder auch in Nachtbussen haben sie sich schnell einen Namen erbrüllt – immer gemäß der Losung: Dynamik und Energie vor Wohlklang und Perfektionismus. Oder, um es mit den Worten von Chorleiter Axel Heintzenberg zu sagen: „Ihr musst nicht unbedingt richtig singen, aber immer lauter als der Nachbar.“ Ein schmetterndes Vokalereignis!

M:Soundtrack Introducing: Sequoyah Murray (Thrill Jockey via Atlanta) + Marshall Vincent via NYC + Breezy via L.A. w/ 15 min intro to her story and works
Underground Berlin via the U.S.A. - new kids on the block -

Underground Berlin via the U.S.A.  >>

M:Soundtrack Introduces three young artists who now call Berlin their home. Sequoyah Murray via Atlanta, Marshall Vincent via NYC/Chicago and Breezy via L.A.  All came to Berlin with individual stories and careers until they landed here and we look forward to hear this in their music and a chat after the show but also we are interested in the red lines between them and what complexities bring them across the world, very much like I did 24 years ago. As a fan and a promoter I am very interested to welcome them all to Berlin and see what synergies can happen between artists, audience and other colleagues from the music landscape in Berlin. Come out and meet these artists and spend an intimate eve with us and give them a warm welcome.

Sequoyah Murray (Thrill Jockey)

At just 22 years old, Sequoyah Murray is crafting the kind of concise, singular musical statements that many artists strive for their whole careers. His mutant brand of modern soul is as deeply eclectic as it is instantly arresting, a quality that drew early comparisons to Arthur Russell. Like Russell, Murray has a boundless, playful approach to composition; an incredible breadth of vision balanced by concise editing. Futuristic electronics, West and North African influenced polyrhythms, gospel vocals and psychedelic Tropicália textures blend seamlessly, anchored by his astounding three-octave baritone. Before You Begin, Murray’s debut album, demonstrates the immense scope of his artistry. Composed, played and produced almost entirely by Murray himself, the album takes the listener on a deeply personal journey through youth.

Marshall Vincent // Many artists attempt to convey the nuances of intimacy in the modern age, but few are able to deliver a finished product that conveys both the sensuality and the frustrations involved so powerfully. Berlin-based singer/songwriter Marshall Vincent is someone belonging to the latter category, as demonstrated on his remarkable new EP Right Down.

While residing in the German capital, Marshall’s sound is very much informed by his time spent living in New York and Chicago. His work can most succinctly be described as neo-R&B, though influences ranging from classical to folk to electronic are all present – the uniting factor being a heavy focus on intimacy, heard with sultry clarity on the title track of his latest EP.

https://soundcloud.com/soucimusic/enough-1?in=soucimusic/sets/rightdown

Intro to Breezy's story and works

Breezy’s latest release, MuLATTO MADness, is an R&B and soul-infused hip hop album that wanders through the consciousness of having complex racial and gender identities. With haunting baritone saxophone in “abOUT me (feat. Loud Lemons),” and the orchestral banger, “male FRAGILITY,” Breezy’s lyrical flow will get you fist-pumping and thinking at the same time. She is not only a rapper who can sing, but an artist who pushes the boundaries of how hip hop should sound.

DJ Team Berg & Tal (Indie, Electro, Pop)

King Kuiper

King Kuiper is an indie rock band based in Berlin. They started writing their first songs on a wall in their basement studio late 2016. Drawing influences from bands such as Joy Division, BRMC and The National, they released their first single in April 2019. Both melancholic and uplifting, “Is Chaos” has been described as a melodic song with a dynamic bass line, baritone vocals and honest existential lyrics.

Snow Forest

Snow Forest ist eine Berliner Band um die in Moskau geborene Singer/Songwriterin Tatjana Uschakowa. Ergänzt wird diese vom Nachlader Frontman Daniel Baumann an den Tasten. Auf den ersten Höreindruck erscheint die Musik sich in ihrer Traurigkeit zu verlieren, lauscht man jedoch genauer den Texten, so versprechen diese Aussicht auf Hoffnung. Live gibt es fast immer eine Überraschung und langweilig wird es bestimmt nicht, denn Snow Forest gibt es in wechselnder Besetzung: elektronisch, akustisch, solo oder mit klassischer Bandbesetzung. Ihre musikalischen Einflüsse verortet die Band zwischen Folk á la Mighty Oaks und Mumford and Sons und der Melancholie nordischer Singer/Songwriter (Teitur und Siggi Ármann). Im Moment befindet sich Snow Forest im Studio, um ihre erste EP aufzunehmen, welche im nächsten Jahr veröffentlicht wird.

WOW (Experimental Rock, Rom)

Intimacy as a sacred path, intimacy as a weapon, intimacy as a reaction, a nighttime ritual that becomes an eloquent but essential survival routine. WOW’s fifth album ‘Come La Notte’ (literally ‘Like Night’) is rooted in trying to figure out these questions, can night living keep protecting us? Is this where we can breathe fresh air and find our place in society?

To me, WOW, has always been the secret gem, one of the shiniest and most vital expressions of art coming out of Italy’s now disastrous political landscape. A reminder, if any needed, of the incredible tableau of music, cinema, experimentation, poetry and craft the ‘bel paese’ generated day in an out for years. Based in Rome and centered around the creative partnership of China Wow and Leo Non, WOW have been writing beautiful songs for years, assimilating and embodying the uncompromising spirit of their Pigneto neighborhood, the visual mesmerization and flickering lights of early Cinecittà, the ramshackle purity of rock’n’roll and primitive punk and the undeniable glory of the Italian 60’s canzone, where dream voices such as Mina and Patty Pravo were supported by otherworldly musicianship that could bring the listener to its feet with a single drum-roll.

duesenjaeger (Punk, Osnabrück) + Klotzs (Punk, Siegen)
danach DJ Hunky Dory

duesenjaeger - Seit der Gründung in der Silvesternacht 1999 ging es immer um Fernweh und Flucht aus einem unerträglichen Alltag. Emoll. Melancholisch, treibend und wütend. Deutschpunk, Punkrock mit deutschen Texten. Trotz fehlender Omnipräsenz: duesenjaeger nennt man, um diesen Musikstil zu umschreiben, in einem Atemzug mit muffpotter. oder auch Turbostaat. Viele Mailorder nutzen duesenjaeger als Referenz, um Emopunk zu definieren. Die musikalische Basis der Band liegt hörbar Genreübergreifend im Gitarrenunderground der 80er.
Ende 2008 ist dann vorerst Schluss. Loslassen, Hierbleiben sowie die Nähe und Verbundenheit zur DIY-Szene erhalten die Spielfreude der Band. Ohne viel Tamtam folgen duesenjaeger spontan Ende 2010 einer Einladung und spielen ein Konzert. »Es juckte uns wieder in den Fingern«. Mit der letzten Besetzung wird jetzt wieder geprobt, getourt, gehasst. Die eigenen Vinylreleases aus den letzten Jahren sind mittlerweile auf dem band-eigenen Label Grabeland Schallfolien wiederveröffentlicht.
--------------
Klotzs - Das Siegener Duo ist hierzulande spätestens seit der Splitsingle mit EA80 bekannt. Doch verbindet die beiden Bands nicht nur eine jahrelange Freundschaft und die Bretter der Bühne, die die Welt bedeuten. Denn auch der düstere Einfluss der Mönchengladbacher hat sich in den ausgeklügelten Texten und der Musik von Klotzs niedergeschlagen. Das ganze wird aber seit jeher durch eine ordentliche Prise Noisepop und innovativen Krautpunk zu einer absolut frischen und eigenständigen Note verdichtet.

Blondevillain (Indie/Berlin)

A Berlin based rock band that blends the black and white grittiness of a classic rock photo, with the vibrant colors of say, the Amazon or Tokyo at night.
Heavy grooves, expensive chords, and a voice to make your mother weep tears of joy is but one attempt at describing the band's music, although you can also have a go after listening to their single 24h Blackstar

Izzy and the Black Trees (PL)

Izzy & The Black Trees blend soulful americana with post-punk energy = fuzz americana. Founded by the singer and band leader, Izabela Rekowska who spent some time in London working-up her songwriting skills. The band have self-released their debut EP in September 2018. Currently, with the new fuzz infused single Picasso's Octopuss released, they are preparing to launch their LP in Jan/Feb 2020. Their live shows are full of punk and rock'n'roll energy.. "Izzy and the Black Trees bring a female lead energy that can be compared to early Blondie, Pj Harvey, Patti Smith band, mixed with fuzz guitar riffs and memorable lyrics & melodies"

Tan LeRacoon stellt sein neues Album "Funeral Tour Of Roses" vor!

This was was called Gothic Soul, Glam Dub, weird indie folk, psychedelic freestyle, baroque pop, a total piece of art, a punk rock Van Morrison. Tan would contradict it all. He is long enough in the game to know old school power pop to electronica, young enough to still have the urge and hunger to go out there and create something new. Welcome to the Funeral Parade Of Roses.

"Glamorous and mysterious" -Hanseplatte

Ben Osborn
Ben Osborn is a composer, poet and multi-instrumentalist. Already known as a composer for theatre and film and a lyricist and librettist, 2019 sees the release of his debut album Letters from the Border.

Channelling Leonard Cohen-esque balladry, Ben draws also from electronica, folk and 20th century art music. Ethereal string sections rise and fade, Björk-like beats skitter, Erik Satie piano chords drift into view: in less capable hands it might sound miscellaneous, but he weaves his disparate influences into textural tapestries that sound like nobody but him.

——————————————————————————
»Whereas the word ABDOMEN may make you think of guts or your failed sixpack, in this case it refers to three wayward guys from Friesland in the great north of the Netherlands. Energetic live shows live up to the band's name in all aspects. Raw, chaotic, unexpected, theatrical. Described as a mixture of punk, garage and grunge, what's important isn't how you choose to call it, but whether or not you bring earplugs to the show.
Abdomen accumulated solid live experience by supporting bands like Ex-Cult and BadBreeding, playing in Dutch festivals such as Popronde and Eurosonic and playing shows in the
UK and Norway. The debut album 'Emetophobia’ was released on Geertruida in September 2018, recorded in Leeds by producer Matt Peel (Pulled Apart By Horses, Autobahn, Eagulls,
Bad Breeding). An new EP will be released in September 2019.«

»The Vices arose at the end of 2018, playing their first shows as support for Yungblud and during showcase festival Eurosonic Noorderslag. Debut single So It Goes received a lot of love and airplay and was followed by a UK tour. With their refreshing take on rock, surf and garage they create their own sound, like a love baby of The Growlers and The Strokes.«

Florian Ostertag + tba.

Agentur AMADIS & Süper.Nice.Shows prsnts:

Florian Ostertag (Singer / Songwriter | Stuttgart)
web. www.florianostertag.de

Eigentlich wollte Florian Ostertag Erfinder werden. Deswegen studierte er zunächst, wie es sich für einen Schwaben gehört, Ingenieurwissenschaften. Seine Freizeit widmete er einer zweiten Leidenschaft, dem Schreiben von Songs. 2009 wollte er sich dafür ein Jahr Zeit nehmen. Statt in eine Ingenieurkarriere driftete Ostertag jedoch in gemeinsame Tourneen mit Philipp Poisel, der den Multiinstrumentalisten direkt als Bandmitglied verpflichtete. Es folgten sein Debutalbum “The Constant Search”, Auftritte bei TV Noir und zahlreiche Konzerte im In- und Ausland. Aus einem Jahr wurden zwei, aus zwei drei und mittlerweile sind es 10 Jahre, seit denen der charismatische Songwriter mit einer alten Bandmaschine und in Begleitung diverser Flohmarkttechnik durch die Lande zieht. Pünktlich zu diesem Jubilaum erscheint Ende 2019 offiziell sein neues Album „Flo and the Machine“, welches er im Fruhjahr 2020 auf die Bühnen bringt.
