A Mote Of Dust – A Mote Dust (s/t)

Man kann ohne Frage behaupten, dass Craig B. zu den einflussreichsten Musikern der schottischen India-Szene gehört. Seit nunmehr zwanzig Jahren ist er in verschiedenen Bands aktiv und veröffentlichte – immer mit Mitstreiter Iain Cook an seiner Seite – zunächst mit Ganger, dann mit Aereogramme, zahlreiche Alben, die großen Einfluss auf viele Post-Rocker, Shoegazer und vor allem Dream-Popper hatten.

Nach dem Ende von Aereogramme, tat er sich direkt wieder mit Iain Cook zu dem Projekt The Unwinding Hours zusammen, mit dem er weitere zwei Alben veröffentlichte, die das...

This year brought the formation of a new supergroup comprised of Franz Ferdinand and glam rockers Sparks. Dubbed FFS, they released their self-titled debut to much acclaim in June. The outfit, which is currently wrapping up its first North American tour together this week, took its brand of theatrical dance-rock to the late-night circuit on Tuesday, performing LP track “Police Encounters” on the Late Late Show. Between the gyrations, elaborate hand gestures, and band’s vocal delivery, it was almost like watching a scene out of a Broadway musical.

Catch the replay below.

La banda conformada por los músicos británicos de Franz Ferdinand y los artistas estadounidenses de Sparks, publicó un nuevo clip.

Se trata de la pieza audiovisual correspondiente a “Call Girl”, una canción que se desprende del álbum, FFS (2015). El video fue dirigido por Sasha Rainbow y nos muestra imágenes de los integrantes con sus pintas a lo Dior Homme bajo una estética llena de glitches, y uno que otro guiño al dada, al deconstructivismo y el arte moderno ruso y holandés. (Encuentre aquí: FFS [Franz Ferdinand y Sparks] en ‘The Late Late Show With James Corden’)

Appropriately for a band hailing from Stroke City, Derry’s The Clameens are indie, from their jangly good time rock n roll influences (Arctic Monkeys, The Libertines and, naturally enough, Julian Casablancas’ boys) to their skinny jeans and denim jacket combo stage attire. Hell, they’re even signed to 25 Hour Convenience Store, the record label run by Lib’s drummer Gary Powell. With shout outs and airplay from MTV, BBC and RTE, as well as sharing festival stages with some big names (including hometown heroes The Undertones), the hype surrounding The Clameens is very real indeed. But will they be the next Arctic Monkeys? Or the...

Puro sonido londinense hoy en Velvety. Una de las últimas sensaciones británicas y a punto de visitar nuestro país, The Bohicas, sigue en plena gira de presentación de su álbum de debut, The making of (2015), un trabajo lleno de grandes canciones que evocan épocas pretéritas y propuestas consolidadas como Franz Ferdinand, Arctic Monkeys, The Vines o The Stone Roses. El enésimo hype británico que reclama nuestra atención y una entretenida puesta de largo para escuchar del tirón.

El cuarteto de Londres comenzó su andadura en 2013, cuando cuatro chicos de Essex, una población al este de la capital, decidieron formar la banda....

Pool – das sind David Stoltzenberg, Nils Hansen und Daniel Husten (v.l.n.r.), alle 23 Jahre alt. Die drei aus Hamburg machen erfrischenden Indie-Pop mit Elementen aus Indie-Rock und Funk. Viele Songs auf ihrem Debüt-Album Snacks & Supplies haben definitiv Ohrwurmpotential, z.B. der gleichnamige Song zum Album oder ihre aktuelle Single Pink Pussy.

Auf dem MS Dockville Festival habe ich mich mit den Jungs vor ihrem Auftritt getroffen und über ihre bisherige Bandgeschichte, Musik und ihr WG-Leben geredet. Außerdem habe ich Pool die wichtigste aller Fragen für Hamburger gestellt – HSV oder St. Pauli?
