Berlin


We’ve already shared three songs off Berlin-based psych artist Miro Denck’s imminent new album as TWÏNS—from which lead single ‘Peace’ premiered through us all the way back in September(!)—so we’re delighted to host an advance stream of the full thing. When we say ‘full thing’, keep in mind the album’s less than 18 minutes long, …

Apparently the first The Brian Jonestown Massacre album in three years has distilled ten tracks from more than 60 recordings made over the years during the COVID lockdowns in singer/songwriter/guitarist Anton Newcombe’s Berlin recording studios. And the result is concentrated goodness, recalling some of Newton’s best material from over the decades. With less experimental sonic …

Berlin-based Miro Denck, otherwise known as TWÏNS, has a new record arriving at the end of the month (pushed back from April). He’s shared three songs from The Human Jazz already, and today unveils a loosie that pays tribute to Alice Coltrane Turiyasangitananda, tipping the hat to (and rearranging) a certain piece of hers in …

Novaa has captured a sense of vulnerability in her expression, wrapped up …

No messing around here: Berlin trio ERRORR‘s new song is a beast. If fired-up noise rock is your thing, you should keep an eye on this lot. The first song to be taken from the band’s forthcoming debut album, ‘Sixxx’ is built around a needling riff that gives the listener about eight seconds to brace …

Put two forward thinking musicians together like guitarist producer Etkin Cekin and multi-instrumental chanteuse Galina Ozeran and your unlikely to get stuck in reverse. Meeting in Berlin in 2015, the pair grew a musical relationship through long improvisational sessions, letting their combined narrative lead the way. Cekin’s imaginings, rooted in Istanbul’s indie-experimental scene then swelled …

He’s been drip-feeding us new music over several years but the Berlin-based Miro Denck has finally got an album on the way. Otherwise known as TWÏNS, Denck began 2021 by releasing the short and sweet ‘Velvet Dreams’, and he’s capping off the year with a pair of new songs; one of which serves as the …

The band was born when they decided to take a random trip …
