BE FOREST & HøRD Live
17.04.15, Tsunami Club Köln

 

Im März 2014 haben BE FOREST schon einmal eines ihrer eindrucksvollen Konzerte im Tsunami Club gespielt, nun gibt sich das italienische Trio erneut die Ehre. Mit „Cold“ und „Earthbeat“ hat die Band aus Pesaro bisher zwei Alben vorgelegt und da die Livequalitäten von BE FOREST ihren Studiokünsten in nichts nachstehen, ist auch diesmal eine betörende Mixtur aus atmosphärischem Shoegaze und filigranem Dream Pop zu erwarten.

Bei HøRD handelt es sich um ein Ein-Mann-Projekt aus Bordeaux, das mit seinen ersten Veröffentlichungen (darunter das zweiteilige Songkonstrukt „Heart“ – Part I & II) schon für einiges Aufsehen in den Clubs gesorgt hat. Der Franzose versteht es wie kaum ein Zweiter sphärische Flächen in druckvolle, manchmal auch recht düster-bedrohlich wirkende Arrangements zu verdichten. Im April 2015 gibt HøRD nun endlich seine ersten Konzerte in Deutschland.

Info:

After the trio’s debut EP “Our Fears” BOX AND THE TWINS (ex-Coctail Twins) continue to venture forward into the dark recesses of their sound cosmos. On their sophomore EP “Below Zero”, BOX’s intimate and sorrowful vocals echo through a sound nebula of reverb-enthused guitars and cool veils of synth. The song “Perfume Well” is accompanied by the visually powerful music video by Cologne-based director Gero Kutzner. The EP is rounded off with two intricate reworkings of “Rooms Made Of Dust” by D’EVOÉ and “Sometimes The Waves” by the british band EVI VINE.

(LP|Digital Album)

Label: Reptile Music / Houndnation
Distribution: Altone
Release Date: 26.09.14
File Under: Shoegaze | Indie | Wave

 

 

Info:

SLOWNESS was formed in San Francisco in 2008 by Julie Lynn and Geoffrey Scott. The EP “Hopeless But Otherwise” was released in 2011. After touring America, the group began work on the LP “For Those Who Wish To See The Glass Half Full”, released in 2013. The second album “How To Keep From Falling Off A Mountain” was written and recorded by Lynn (bass, keys, vocals) and Scott (guitar, keys, vocals) in San Francisco and New York City and features Scott Putnam on drums, Greg Dubrow on bass and Sean Eden (Luna) on additional guitars. The record was produced by Monte Vallier (Weekend, The Soft Moon) and Geoffrey Scott and was mastered by Kramer (Low, Galaxie 500).  The San Francisco based band is a blend of drone pop jangle and new wave shoegaze under layered and androgynous harmonies, and is reminiscent of I.R.S. era REM, early Stereolab and mid-period The Cure.

Info:

Gegründet 2008 in San Francisco, haben SLOWNESS erstmals 2011 mit der EP “Hopeless But Otherwise” für Aufmerksamkeit gesorgt. Zwei Jahre später veröffentlichte die Band um Geoffrey Scott und Julie Lynn ihren ersten Longplayer “For Those Who Wish To See The Glass Half Full”, der von Monte Vallier (Weekend, The Soft Moon) produziert und von Kramer (Low, Galaxie 500) gemastert wurde. Kurz vor dem Release ihres zweiten Albums “How To Keep From Falling Off A Mountain” erscheint nun auch das bisher nur via Import erhältliche Debut erstmals offiziell in Europa. Die atmosphärisch-geschmeidige, oft von einem Hauch Melancholie durchströmte Melange aus Shoegaze, Indie und Wave titulieren SLOWNESS selbst als “Drone Pop“, den sie in einem stilistischen Bezug zu Bands wie REM (in ihrer I.R.S. Ära) und den frühen Stereolab sowie dem Schaffen von The Cure am Ende der 1980er Jahre sehen.
