——————————————————————————
»'Auto-Pain' is the Sophomore album from Deeper, a record that finds the band embracing open space, using synths to create shadows where bricks of guitars once would’ve blocked out the sun. The group — singer and guitarist Nic Gohl, bassist Drew McBride, and drummer Shiraz Bhatti — were all graduates of Chicago’s rich DIY scene who came together around their love of Wire, Devo, Gang of Four, and Television. While the new record is still within the Great Lakes post-punk tradition of their debut, the album isn’t as insular as its predecessor; it’s less interested in pile-driving and more willing to dwell in liminal spaces. Guitars enter the picture precisely, locked bass grooves propel things forward. Drummer Shiraz Bhatti, who is half-Pakistani and half-Native American, embraced the drumming patterns he’d heard growing up at pow-wows, channeling the anxieties of his heritage into his playing and keeping the group grounded when they switch into all-out percussive attack. The result is an album both more nuanced and catchy.«

ABGESAGT/Cancelled! (Chavalan + Chance To Tliwosc)
danach "strange tunes on monday"

Chavalan is a "new" band formed for musicians with a very long history of recordings and concerts behind them and very well known in the underground spanish scene. The drummer Marcos Junquera and the singer-bass player Jose Guerrero played together in the spanish cult band Betunizer, from 2008 to 2018. A band with 4 album released and more than 400 concerts played around the world, included important festivals like All Tomorrow's Parties Festival in UK, the South By Southwest in Austin (USA) or Primaverasound in Spain. Jose Guerrero also plays in other projects like Jupiter Lion (3 albums), Rastrejo (11 albums), Cuello (4 albums)... And Marcos Junquera in Dorian Wood (3 albums) or Alberto Montero (5 albums)... 
The other member of Chavalan, Jussi Folch, is member of other spanish cult band called Aullido Atómico (5 albums) and other past projects like Retraseres (2 albums) or Ratolines (2 albums).

Together, they formed Chavalan in 2018 with the idea to play very rhytmic and intense music with two bass players, drums and voice, without guitars. And they recorded their first album in April 2019, released in October 2019 by the independent and open-minded label Mascarpone Records.




CHANCE TO TLIWOSC (the name is inspired by the polish word częstotliwość‚ frequency‘) is a project of drummer Christoph which combines the sounds of acoustic drums with synthesized/electronic sounds. The path of the signals from the drums into a computer, where they are transformed, processed and manipulated, provides a framework for experimenting and improvisation, even interaction between the drumming and the sound synthesis. Playing his drums, he is stimulating synthesizers and sound generators to play, to sound with him. Although he can control some aspects – mostly dramaturgic elements – others are more or less autonomous and unforeseen.

Hachiku /// dream-pop, aus

——————————————————————————
Hachiku is the brainchild of German bedroom-producer Anika Ostendorf, 25 who writes and produces her home-made dream pop (think: Grimes, Perfume Genius and early CocoRosie) from whichever bedroom she is currently inhabiting. Born in Detroit and raised in Germany, Ostendorf first formed her sound at 16 while on a road trip of the U.S.— accompanied only by her dog— before relocating to London and recently Melbourne.
Since the release of Hachiku’s self-titled debut EP in June 2017 on Courtney Barnett’s Australian label Milk! Records, Ostendorf found a home and 4 piece band in Melbourne quickly becoming one of the most sought after live acts playing shows with Aldous Harding, Stella Donnelly and Japanese Breakfast. Hachiku was invited to open for The Breeders and José González across Australia in April & December 2018 and joined Jen Cloher and Snail Mail on their UK and Europe tours in February and October 2018. She also opened for Courtney Barnett on her 2015 European tour as well as her 2020 US solo tour. She played at Iceland Airwaves in 2019 and is confirmed to play SXSW (Austin, USA) as well as c/o pop Cologne in 2020.
Her debut album will be released in August 2020 on Milk! Records.

'Hachiku's ethereal and catchy melodies, highly tasteful, textural guitar playing and shimmering walls of sound create a unique brand of left of centre shoegaze, with each song taking the listener on a melodic journey' (THE MUSIC, Australia).

»Die sympathische D.I.Y Punkband LÜGEN aus Dortmund macht 80er Jahre Gitarrenunderground mit deutscher und amerikanischer (Post-)Punk-Spielart. In den politischen Texten liegt immer ein aufflammendes Aufbegehren gegen Konventionen und ein Pochen auf das Recht auf Selbstbestimmung.«

»Was geht denn gerade in Melbourne? Ist die Stadt mitlerweile the Capital of Wimp geworden? Oder anders gefragt: kann es sein, dass vor Jahren einmal ein großer Container mit John Peel-Tapes Melbourne Beach kontaminierte und die Stadt seitdem Slack-Pop-Diamanten am Stück produziert? Auch das Debüt von The Stroppies läßt sich nur so erklären: denn Whoosh (im März 2019 auf Tough Love Records) ist vom gleichen juvenilen Twang-Vibe infiziert, der zwischen Flying Nun, The Feelies, den Television Personalities und The Pastels noch genau eine handbreite Gegenwärtigkeit zuläßt, um nicht anachronistisch oder retro zu klingen. Und während Terry, School of Radiant Living, Total Control, UV Race, Constant Mongrel oder Primo! in den letzten Jahren den Weg geebnet haben, werden The Stroppies mit ihrer flirrenden Nöligkeit, catchy Slackness und tighter Rhythmik die Herzen junggebliebener Gegenwartsverweigerer im Sturm erobern. The kids are allright (aber vor allen Dingen wissen sie, wie man mehr als okaye Musik macht).«

Live!
FCKR (leipzig)

FCKR machen Deutschpunk. Klar, Deutschpunk kann jeder. Hört sich doch sowieso alles gleich an. Aber FCKR sind anders, eigenständig. Das Trio aus Leipzig bedient sich eher untypischer Stilelemente und bringt frischen Wind ins angestaubte Deutschpunkgenre. Wave trifft auf Deutschpunk, The Cure meets Schleim-Keim. Geht nicht? Geht doch. Punk kann alles.
