Wind Und Farben – Podgora (Video)

Last Thursday I was watching old rollerblading videos with my colleague after work. I owned one VHS tape back then and it’s up on Youtube. We started debating what kind of influences these kind of videos had on us musically. It’s quite fascinating that you really link music to visuals no matter if it was through an old VHS tape or early games like Tony Hawk’s or something. My god, how many people thought ‚Superman‚ by Goldfinger was the greatest song out there for one summer long? Podgora has nothingRead More

Beatsteaks – Beatsteaks

I never was an astronaut, I never was a drummer. I never was a Beastie Boy but it doesn’t really matter! It’s great when there’s a band you grew up with together. I don’t mean that in the sense of you went to the same school, hung out at the same bars or on the same playground etc (even though that is quite cool, too). I mean it in the sense of you discovered them quite young and as you grew up yourself, the band also got bigger and bigger.Read More

Spring Offensive – Young Animal Hearts

”If you want to find your lover I suggest you slide into the river like the rat that you are” When Spring Offensive announced their first LP, I was excited. I spent a great amount of time annoying my environment how brilliant this band is. Songs like The Well or A Shutter And A Start took me by storm. Their musical approach state as Indie, but more clever, as danceable, but sometimes depressing, as emotional, in the most positive meaning. A Shutter and a Start: only available on EPRead More

Ovlov – AM

When I grew up, I played in bands. My first musical outing was a 2-piece punk band. We practiced in my neighbours bedroom every friday after school. I carried my amp, my guitar and a little PA over, we set up and played. I remember how easy it was to write songs for that band. I felt like our songs would someday change the world. So I tried to put effort in the lyrics. A few weeks ago, I stumbled over a folder from that time. And to be honest,Read More

Kevin Devine – Bubblegum (Bulldozer)

Or we can fire up the program / let the drones do all the dirt It’s simply one of those undisputed truths: Kevin Devine was always at his best when he was angry. Angry at the government, at some ex-girlfriend, at himself or at the society as a whole. Bearing this in mind, it is pretty good news that one out of his two new albums, „Bubblegum“, totally lives up to KD’s anger standards.Read More

Adolar – Die Kälte der neuen Biederkeit

Die Leute die hier wohnen sind wahrscheinlich nicht mehr wach. Oder bin ich alleine? Stören würde es mich nicht. The people who are living here are probably not awake anymore. Or am I alone? I wouldn’t mind. It’s funny, when all of a sudden you rediscover music that you’ve cherished a lot for a while. It is also strange when you realise that you don’t have a clue why you abandoned that music in the first place. I mean, we all go through phases. There’s the time when you getRead More

Rika – How to Draw a River, Step by Step

I had a couple of drinks last night Over the last year I really learned to love Austria. I used to drive through a very small bit of that lovely country every time I visited my grandparents with my family. But while for me the area around Bregenz, in the region of Vorarlberg was as much Austira, as any other part of it, I was told something different quite some years back. My old band and me were opening a hardcore show back at home. We shared the stage withRead More
