DEAD LEAF ECHO – EU Tour & New Releases

Promotion News / New Release – Mai 2017

DEAD LEAF ECHO
Neue 7“ Single „Strawberry Skin” / Re-Release 10“ EP „True Deep Sleeper” / EU-Tour im Mai 2017

 

 

DEAD LEAF ECHO sind 2008 aus einem Künstlerkollektiv in Brooklyn hervorgegangen. Nachdem die Band im Frühjahr letzten Jahres ihre ersten Konzerte in Europa gespielt hat, nimmt sie die Veröffentlichung der brandneuen 7“ Single „Strawberry Skin“ zum Anlass, nun zum zweiten Mal für einige Shows über den großen Teich zu kommen. Parallel dazu erscheint außerdem ein Re-Release der 10“ EP „True Deep „Sleeper“ von 2014, beide Vinyls werden via Reptile Music auch offiziell in Deutschland erhältlich sein. Im Herbst 2017 wird voraussichtlich der nächste Longplayer des New Yorker Quartetts folgen.

Die herausragende Spezialität der Gruppe sind reverbgetränkte Gitarrenflächen wie schwerer, dichter Nebel, die präzise Hooklines, scharfkantige Post Punk-Anleihen und sorgsam durchdachte Pop-Affiliation doch nie völlig verdecken können. Wahrscheinlich hat sie deshalb mit Nouveau Wave eine Genre-Bezeichnung für sich festgelegt, die direkter (und berechtigter) New Wave-Verweis ist. Die Vielschichtigkeit und Heavyness ihrer Gitarrentexturen und die brutale Lautstärke ihrer Liveauftritte fordern fast zwangsläufig Verweise zu My Bloody Valentine ein – und doch sind DEAD LEAF ECHO so etwas wie eine clevere Revolution des Shoegazing-Genres mit ihrer ausgeprägten Catchyness und dem oft zweistimmigen Gesang. Die Schwermütigkeit von Sänger und Songschreiber LG Galleon in perfekter Harmonie mit den beinahe schwerelosen Vocals der weiblichen Protagonistin Ana Breton lässt Kritiker gelegentlich auch den Begriff Dream Pop bemühen. Und schließlich tauchen in ihrer Musik immer wieder Ambient-Einflüsse auf. Sorgsam konstruierte Beatgerüste und geloopte Stimmflächen führen bis an jene Grenze, an der Indie Pop in Abstraktion verschwindet. Aus all diesen stilistischen Komponenten ergibt sich ein warmes Bad in klein gemahlenem Glas.

Release Date: 28.04.17

THE AUTUMN SIGHS Release Info:

THE AUTUMN SIGHS were formed in 2011 in Siegen, Germany. The trio is mainly influenced by the indie-guitar-sound of the late 80s / early 90s and classic shoegaze bands like Slowdive, Lush, Ride and My Bloody Valentine. Their music combines disturbing „Wall of Sound“ and bittersweet melancholy.

After the debut EP “Sprig” (2012) the new EP “Branches“ marks the beginning of a tetralogy. The next part is already in the works and scheduled for release later this year. Additionally, a 12” vinyl for the Berlin based label Dreams Never End is planned as well.

THE FOREIGN RESORT – SHE IS LOST

Promotion News / New Release – April 2017

THE FOREIGN RESORT – SHE IS LOST
[New Single]

 

Danish post-punk trio THE FOREIGN RESORT release their new single ‚She is Lost‘ on April 19. This is the first song from the band’s next full length album, marking a return to the analogue sound of their ‚New Frontiers‘ album, only this time the sound is more minimalistic and with plenty of electronics and spacious drums to create a dreamy yet upbeat soundscape full of contrast.

For lead singer Mikkel B. Jakobsen ‚She is Lost‘ is a very personal song about what he sarcastically refers to as “the summer of love”: “It was one of the worst summers in my life. I came out strong on the other side, but this song was written partly when things were looking very bad. I was not doing the right things to get to a better place and partly when I had realized it was not just me who was the problem. Hence the title ‚She is Lost‘.”

THE FOREIGN RESORT are Denmark’s finest musical export of post-punk and dark new wave, led by singer and songwriter Mikkel Borbjerg Jakobsen. The band combines the shadowy mysticism of The Cure’s Pornography era with a driving production aesthetic akin to LCD Soundsystem. Intricate reverb-enveloped guitar lines glide over Steffan Petersen’s motorik bass and Morten Hansen’s powerful drumming, all while Mikkel’s taut and sincere vocal delivery demands your attention.

Having toured with The Raveonettes, A Place to Bury Strangers and Swervedriver, THE FOREIGN RESORT has also shared bills with bands like DIIV, The Soft Moon, The KVB, Slowdive, Minor Victories and, most recently, Cold Cave. They’ve also toured the USA relentlessly, addicted to the allure of America’s lost highways. Since 2010, the band has been rigorous in playing more than 400 shows across North America and Europe with performances at several festivals incl. SXSW, Iceland Airwaves, Wave Gotik Treffen in Germany and Canadian Music Week 2017.

The band’s latest release ‚The American Dream‘ was dubbed “post punk par excellence” by Deep Ground, with Slug Magazine saying this is “an EP that possesses a singular fault: It is not long enough”. THE FOREIGN RESORT’s 2014 album “New Frontiers” (produced by John Fryer) ranked among the year’s top albums at numerous European and American blogs. With several music videos to their credit, there is no video for the new single ‚She is Lost‘ yet, motivating the band to crowdsource their new video.

Seitdem DESPERATE JOURNALIST im Jahr 2015 – nach mehreren Singles und EPs – ihr Debütalbum auf Fierce Panda Records veröffentlicht haben, geht es für die Londoner Band steil bergauf. Nicht nur mit ihren Releases konnten die Briten die Musikpresse begeistern, auch für seine fulminante  Livepräsenz ist das Quartett berüchtigt, das sich im stilistischen Schnittfeld zwischen Indie Pop und Post Punk bewegt. Im Zuge des im März erschienenen Nachfolgewerks „Grow Up“ und der begleitenden Europatour gastiert die Gruppe am 12.04.17 abermals in Köln.
Web

Allein auf Akustikgitarre, Melodica und Gesang reduziert, kreieren PRECIOUS FEW einen mitreißenden Stil mit unverkennbaren Einflüssen aus dem britischen und amerikanischen Indie Pop. In der Vergangenheit hat das Bonner Duo, dessen Debüt „Tales“ 2015 auf Tumbleweeds Records veröffentlicht wurde, bereits mit The Wedding Present und den Cranes die Bühne geteilt.

THE HISTORY OF COLOUR TV – SOMETHING LIKE ETERNITY [German Release]

New Release – April 2017

THE HISTORY OF COLOUR TV –
SOMETHING LIKE ETERNITY

Label: Reptile Music / Weird Books
Format: Album (DLP GAS + Digital Europe)
Distribution: Altone
Release Date: 13.04.17
File Under: Indie | Alternative

 

THOCTV Release Info:

Something Like Eternity is the third album from the Berlin-based international band The History Of Colour TV. The group traveled to France in the spring of 2016 to record with Peter Deimel (The Ex, The Wedding Present etc) at the legendary Black Box studios. Stylistically, the album is a departure from its predecessors‘ dreamy, reverb-laden sound signatures. Here the band is heard live and without artifice, a dynamic and open recording with minimal overdubs. The album is a cycle of fractured, ominous narratives – songs haunted by indeterminate characters and small-town wilderness, stories of emotion without release, of things happening because nothing is… And within the songs‘ elongated structures and narrative themes, the band blends their customary melodic sensibilities with noisy echoes of the early American underground.

The History Of Colour TV was founded in 2010 in Berlin by british artist Jaike Stambach. Over the course of two albums and multiple EPs released, the band has been unabashedly diverse in their approach, exploring harsh noise, experimental sound collages, reverb-saturated dream-pop, shoegaze guitar-scapes, or the stripped-down rock of their more recent offerings. Their new album Something Like Eternity will be released in Germany on April 13th 2017.

MESSER BRÜDER Release Info:

There hadn’t been a plan. Coming from a rehearsal she took the wrong door, tumbled into the studio and then she sang. And that was it. From then on the MESSER BRÜDER formed a trio – with her. Almost everything has changed since then: more vocals, more melodies, more aggression and most of all her voice.

Relationship is brittle but the music ties them together. On a personal level they walk on thin ice, but musically they all just fit together: electronic beats, slicing synthesizer-sounds, fat basses, cinematic guitar sounds from the steel-mill and a voice just to melt away. The music is a mix of real instruments and programmed sounds, full of surprising twists and turns and catchy tunes.

It was in Darmstadt where the musicians Thomas Buchenauer and Florian Malicke met. Somehow they both had ended up in that town near Frankfurt. Since 2010 they released three albums full of electronic instrumental music, which they also performed at theatre productions. Along with singer and actress Julia Rothfuchs the “EP 1” was released in 2016. The new album is titled “Fahr zur Hölle” (“Go To Hell”).

Nebel! Strobo! Atmosphäre pur! Nicht nur dies zeichnet die Liveshows von VEIL OF LIGHT aus, die nach diversen EPs und dem Debüt auf Beläten im Herbst 2016 endlich ihr zweites Album „Ursprung“ beim Berliner Label aufnahme + wiedergabe veröffentlicht haben. Wer schon mal erlebt hat, mit welch massiver Intensität das eidgenössische Duo auf der Bühne reverbgetränkte Gitarren, industrielle Percussions und energetische Synthieflächen in düster-dräuendem Coldgaze verdichtet, kann bereits erahnen, was ihn erwartet. Wer nicht, sollte sich auf ein audio-visuelles Erlebnis der besonderen Art einstellen.

HOLYGRAM Release Info:

The Cologne based band HOLYGRAM have already shown their stunning potential with the self-titled debut EP, which Reptile Music released for the first time on CD in February 2017. Besides the five original tracks it contained four brandnew remixes by Blind Delon, Box And The Twins, D’Evoé and Bob Humid. Those mixes have been collected for the digital release of the EP “Holygram Remixed”.

HOLYGRAM walk the tightrope between New Wave, Post Punk and industrial Krautrock: driving, gloomy and full of catchy moments. The varied influences of the five band members who gathered in the vibrant music landscape of Cologne in 2015 are unmistakable: New Order meets NEU! Previously contradictory elements are deftly combined into a sinister soundtrack for the city at twilight. Music for the lost.

HOLYGRAM Release Info:

Reptile Music proudly presents the CD edition of the stunning debut EP from the Cologne based band HOLYGRAM! Besides the five original tracks it contains four brandnew remixes by Blind Delon, Box And The Twins, D’Evoé and Bob Humid!

HOLYGRAM walk the tightrope between New Wave, Post Punk and industrial Krautrock: driving, gloomy and full of catchy moments. The varied influences of the five band members who gathered in the vibrant music landscape of Cologne in 2015 are unmistakable: New Order meets NEU! Previously contradictory elements are deftly combined into a sinister soundtrack for the city at twilight. Music for the lost.

The debut EP „Holygram“ was recorded and mixed in the band’s own AMEN studio in Cologne over several months. The five songs demonstrate the bandwidth of the band without staying on the beaten track or being stranded in any one particular genre. Anyone who has seen them live will confirm that the spectrum of HOLYGRAM is by no means exhausted.

The songs „Hideaway“ and „Acceleration“ show the atmospheric density of the band and clearly demonstrate the aspect of contrast which resonates subliminally throughout the production. Laid back drums meet driving basslines and synthesizer melodies to reflect the conflict in the lyrics. Topics such as alienation in the dreary city or depression are explored here in a unity of word and music.

„Daria“, „Still There“ and „Distant Light“, on the other hand, invite the listener to dance in the fog and strobe lights of their favourite club and make no secret of the fact that the band does not just want to stimulate melancholic musing. HOLYGRAM will present the sound captured in the studio live on stage, without relying on the usual practice of backing tracks from the laptop.
