Someone left you looking for a reason. Found it in the Reverie Lagoon The first time I heard „Sowing Season“ by Brand New, it blew me away. The part when the song finally erupts after building too much pressure to bear – it still gets me every time. To this day it evokes a feeling I don’t really comprehend, but I’m sure everyone has felt at least once in his life – unless you’re one of those lucky ones that haven’t had anything go in the wrong direction for themselves.Read 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

Foxing – The Albatross

bees made hives in the mouth of the lion / i made my home in the house of a liar I have been very late with this one. I got an email a couple of months ago that reminded me Foxing were releasing their debut album via Count Your Lucky Stars. I got so caught up in work and simply forgot. Then, a couple of weeks later, it was there. I stumbled across it one day while treasure hunting for some news from my favorite labels. I pressed the playRead More

Into It. Over It. – Intersections

Evan Weiss is a modern day hero for me. I am not sure how many bands and labels he introduced me to over the last two odd years. He gave me comfort when I felt bad, he was there to share some great days with me and he has the ability to almost make me cry. We share a similar soft spot for checkered shirts and shell-rimmed glasses. Every time I hear his music, I feel like I’m listening to a good friend of mine. Mind you, I’ve never metRead More

Old Gray – An Autobiography

I will keep breathing, but I won’t feel alive I don’t know a better feeling than standing on stage (or just in front of people if there is no stage). The excitement that builds before you go on stage, the tension building when you walk up to the microphone to say the first words, the emotions you get thrown back at you by the crowd, all that. But most importantly for me, at times it felt like an act of self-cleansing. Once you are out there, you spit everything you’veRead More
She stepped outside into the morning air To watch the cars go by and let the sun dry her hair It’s cold outside. Winter has returned after misleading us into believing it had just been here for a short stint. Apparently it just took a little detour round the corner, like a hurricane, keeping all quiet in the midst of it before letting all hell loose again. I am living in the middle of the biggest city in Germany and one would guess that snow is not a common goodRead More
