Foals – What Went Down (Official Video)

Foals are back! What Went Down is a hell of a single! After an unexpected Facebook snippet, a BBC Radio One primetime premiere we finally have a visual for the song that actually makes the whole thing even tastier. I’ve got a longer history with this band, dating back to my time in the UK. Back then I ignored them. Even though their first two albums were good albums, looking back. But what really got me going was this song. And then there was this whole album proper rocking, properRead More

Beatsteaks live at Reeperbahn Festival

It was one of the hottest gigs I’ve ever been to. Witnessing Beatsteaks live at Reeperbahn Festival in 2014 was one of the things you probably won’t forget that easily. For those who don’t know Reeperbahn Festival, it’s basically the German/European equivalent of SXSW and it’s getting bigger with every year. The whole thing is centered around Hamburg’s famous red-light district where the Beatles learned their trade, where sex-shops are door to door with great clubs, where stag-dos cross paths with crooks, hustlers and the hip party crowd. There’s noRead 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

Front Page: Best of 2013 Part II

Matze’s Top 5+5 (no particular order) 1. Grey Reverend – A Hero’s Lie (Motion Audio/Rough Trade) The story of discovering the music of L.D. Brown aka Grey Reverend is a bit dull, I have to admit: I stumbled across the cover thinking „well, that’s a great photo“ and just gave it a listen. And it completely blew me away. This summer I was sitting at a beach in Portugal with „A Hero’s Lie“ on my headphones simply gazing at the sea and for a moment I was at peace withRead More

Front Page: Best of 2013 Part I

So 2013 is drawing an end. The sheer flood of releases is ebbing away and as per usual, people are compiling lists of their favorites throughout the year. For me it has been a very exciting year. The blog has grown over the first year of its existence. So happy birthday little baby. But it’s not only my baby anymore. I have the pleasure of welcoming two writers aboard who will help me publishing more stuff and will give you an additional angle to my boring self-loathing. So say helloRead More

Review: Haim

And I’ll never look up, just hold your head up And if it gets rough, it’s time to get rough It was never in question what this record would sound like. After you had heard the first two singles of the album, both released way in advance of the album, it was clear for everyone to see that it would sound like it had arrived 30 years too late. But fuck me, I did not expect the full out pastiche colored, Miami-Vice suits, Magnum moustache, fake zebra carpet styled audioRead More
