EXEK are returning to Europe and the UK in May/June 2024! The Australian post-punk outfit will be promoting their latest record ‘The Map and the Territory’ released October 2023 on Foreign Records. The other reason for the tour is that the band is now ten years old. In that time, EXEK have released six albums, and have toured Japan, the USA, and Europe. Their sound is difficult to pigeon hole due to a wide variety of influences (punk, trip-hop, RnB, dub, kraut, avant-garde), but the general consensus is something in the lineage of The Fall, Happy Mondays, ESG, and PIL. 

For the band, the highlights are not fame and fortune (well aware of their slim odds), but more so finding recognition amongst the artists they admire and are influenced by. Whether it's supporting Liars and Anika, or being added to playlists by late greats like Mark Stewart and Andrew Weatherall. Come find them playing a town near you!

»BALM is a trio from Berlin. Balm has a mild post-punk approach with a warm and personal/emotional focus. They might swap Instruments to serve the song. Balm just released an LP on mangelrecords.«

Post-punk/no wave oddity Geo (KJ Braams (bass) Jorne Visser (vocals/guitar), Gijs Deddens (drums) and Ype Zijlstra (keys, electronics) are like a sentient slot machine: whatever seems happenstance is actually by design, and the more mismatched the moving parts appear, the more their music starts to make sense. Since the Groningen quartet’s inception in 2019, they have built a framework of skeletal agit-funk, cartoonish chromatics and neoteric art punk vignettes – sketching negative spaces where chaos and cacophony can sound perplexingly catchy. After releasing their esteemed EP in 2021, the band has entered its next creative chapter.

Out of Body – Geo’s long-awaited debut album – is an oblong snow globe utopia where dancing with two left feet is an actual custom. Out on Erste Theke Tontraeger on April 26, 2024 – this collection of songs constitutes material Geo have been writing and performing when they first entered the circuit. These jitterbug, birdbrained post-punk spiels are in the spirit of gung-ho deconstructionists like The Contortionists, The Fall and Gang of Four. On Out of Body the band play emotions out against each other like some kind of absurdist Punch and Judy show.

»Seit Jahren und Nächten sind wir als DIRTY SLIPS auf den diversesten Konzertbühnen unterwegs und zelebrieren unsere "discothèque irrationnelle". Seit Beginn haben wir uns uns Grosses und auch Grössenwahn auf die Fahnen geschrieben; wir möchten Grenzen ausloten und unbedingt auch mal eine überschreiten: die Grenze des guten Geschmacks, Genre-Grenzen sowieso,Gender-Grenzen und nicht zuletzt die Grenzen der Sprache.

Nach einer ersten Single (Cigarette/Hulahopp) und einem Videoclip (Lucky Luke) 2018 wurde 2019-2022 eine Single-Trilogie bestehend aus 3 Singles mit 2 Songs physisch (7” Vinyl) und digital aufgelegt, sowie ein Video zu “Bussilove”. Für Winter 2024 ist eine weiteres Video (Shrimps) sowie Ende Jahr ein Album geplant.

Als Ergebnis eines interkulturellen und globalisierten Alltags wird in unterschiedlichen Sprachen - zum Teil auch in erfundenen - gesungen. Der performative Charakter der kostümierten Konzerte wird als audiovisuelles, explosives Ereignis beschrieben und mutiert mit sozialkritischen Texten zu einer Disco-Punk-Show mit hohem Tanzfaktor. Dirty Dancing meets the Slits oder so...«

TAG OHNE SCHATTEN 

sind ein Trio aus Hannover, Die Band steht für Uptempo-Punk Rock Songs mit Texten über gesellschaftliches und zwischenmenschliches Auseinanderdriften, welches mit einer guten Portion Wut und Melancholie nachdrücklich und laut, aber nicht hoffnungslos kanalisiert wird. Das erste Album „Ein besserer Ort“ wurde im Frühjahr 2019 selbst produziert und als Digipack-CD via „Zygmatron Music“ veröffentlicht. Hören kann man dieses und auch frühere Demos auf: tagohneschatten.bandcamp.com Auf instagram.com/tagohneschattenpunk gibt es etwas zu sehen und die Möglichkeit der Kontaktaufnahme. Für 2024 stehen diverse Konzerte auf dem Programm als auch die Aufnahme eines zweiten Albums. 

BUMANBUMAN 

 ist mein Soloprojekt. Ich bin Ruebe, seit 40 Jahren bei diversen Bands zum Thema Punkrock tätig ( z.B. HAF, Buman, Minus Eins, Hammerfall, We Are Loud, etc etc etc. ). Dann wurde es Zeit, den ultimativen Höhepunkt jeder Rockstarkarriere anzugehen : Eine Soloplatte. Also erschuf ich in langen dunklen Nächten die LP „Verdammt Nochmal“, released im April 2024. 11 Songs zwischen Auf-die-Fresse-Punkrock und Tut-so-als-ob-er´s-könnte-Gefrickel, garniert mit der einen oder anderen Melodie, die im Ohr bleiben will. Heisser Scheiss, sach ich mal. Und weil ich´s so gut finde, muss es auch auf die Bühne, egal ob ich dafür sechs Arme zu wenig hab oder nicht. Also kommt die Band jetzt vom Band und ich nöl euch dazu auf´s Übelste die Ohren voll mit allem, was ich so zu sagen hab. Und das ist nicht wenig. Cheerio, wir sehen uns.

The Berliner Live: summer launch party with Berlin indie bands

Mag drop, mic drop! Come celebrate our hot new summer issue with a night of live music and dancing. Little League Shows and The Berliner have joined forces to bring you two fresh Berlin indie bands on the Schokoladen stage, plus DJs ‘til dawn. 

Kicking off the night is Objet Darling, a “Brexit-pop” power duo that combines high-energy electronic loops and hypnotic vocals. Then we’ll have the poetic synth-pop of Timbeau, who promise resonant bass and funky, punky guitar. 

To keep you dancing post bands, DJ Einkaufswagen and The Berliner’s very own Jonny Tiernan will play back-to-back. You can expect disco, post-punk, reggae, daft pop and everything in between. 

Each concert ticket includes a copy of the new issue, so come for a free mag, stay for top-notch tunes.

Soltero (Indie/Berlin)
 
Berlin's Soltero plays fuzzy, jangly indie rock in the vein of Yo La Tengo, Pavement, and the Violent Femmes. Songs of gallows humor, desperation, and geographical dislocation. 

Over the years Soltero has shared the stage with such acts as The Mountain Goats, Magnolia Electric Co., the Microphones, and Mirah (to name only bands whose names start with "m"). And possibly the craziest thing ever is that Soltero's "Fight Song for True Love" was once played at Fenway Park, the home of the Boston Red Sox.

Come by tonight to celebrate the release of the newest album with Tim, Patti, and Ludwig!

MDMAR is one of the new voices in Mallorca with a clear international projection. Her songs, sung in English and of her own authorship, have a strong folk-pop style that is inspired by the influence of artists such as Angus & Julia Stone, Harry Styles and Cage the Elephant, but stands out for her strong personality and her fascinating voice. MDMAR has a self-released album "About Love", but it is in 2021 when she begins her record project with Blau publishing the singles "Better Life", "Forgive" (with the collaboration of Cooza, queer singer of indie folk from England) and "Little Girl". In March 2022 she publishes with L.A. a wonderful single "Like at home" who also produces the song with Sergio Llopis, the single is Mastered by Sean Magee at Abbey Road Studios in London. On April 8, the complete album Better Life produced and recorded at Tramuntana Estudis by Jaume Gelabert is released in CD and digital.

MARIUS ATHERTON has always loved music.

Indeed, music is a very beautiful thing, it breezes through the phases of life, it is like a comforting presence (like a dog).

Marius Atherton went through many phases during his single life, and he also just adopted a dog named Lucien.

He has been playing with various bands of more or less quality music all across the Schengen area (+ Switzerland), now he is attracted to fragile music..... Influenced by Anne Sylvestre, he writes songs with themes of melancholy, blind trust or that moment of shivers where you don't really know if you are being watched when you’re not looking.

Alongside his "songwriting" activity, Marius diversified his field of action, as suggested to him by his unemployment advisor and friend Romuald Pommier. He was initiated by his aunt Sonia, who plays the cello very well, to the celestial joys of baroque music. Since then, he has devoted a noisy worship to composers such as Bach, Pergolèse and François Couperin. He devotes more and more time to the study of their works, which does not make Lucien very happy because he much prefers walking around and smelling the city streets.

Marius Atherton released a solo album in 2020 coproduced by following labels : Potagers Natures, Twintoe Records, Noway and Scolopendre

It’s difficult to pin down GELBART’s style: dwell too much on his jazz/electronica side, and he’ll shower you with industrial blip storms that will leave you dumbfounded. Gelbart does not pause for a cup of tea or a quick five-minute sit down. He is restless, energetic and animated, and his music will leave you scrambling for breath.

Adi Gelbart is a self-taught multi-instrumentalist, composer, filmmaker and author. His lifelong obsession with creativity has so far resulted in more than 20 LPs and EPs of original music for electronics and chamber ensembles, numerous works of abstract and narrative animation, and most recently, a novel.

A dive into Gelbart’s body of work uncovers a bizarre yet wholly consistent own world, a surrealist mirror-universe of sound and imagery that aims to combine the accessible with the complex.

Gelbart has been living and working in Berlin for the past eighteen years. His music appeared on many record labels, the latest being Felix Kubin’s Gagarin Records.
