Earlier this year, we were interviewed for Ö1 Campus about the music scene in Austria and its relationship to the internet, and like so many other people who are involved with music theoretically, the person who interviewed us is also actively making music as a part of Pilot Jr.
Unlike many other people who should probably stick to the theoretical part, Pilot Jr. is actually a promising project worth keeping on your radar.
M185 - Soon from Everything Is Up out on 22 May on Siluh Records
Finally something new from M185! While their last album was the perfect soundtrack for sweating in venues with too many people and terrible ventilation, their new single Soon, with its polyphonic falsetto singing, is more like a soundtrack for sweating on a roadtrip to your summer vacation destination in a car with your best friends and no air conditioning.
I guess you all know that on Soundcloud, as on any other online music distribution platform, you can tag your songs with whatever categories you feel like they might belong to. Now apparently Wandl decided to tag his latest piece, which is also available as free download, with “>3”, which leaves me utterly confused. Is it supposed to be the opposite of the well-known “<3”? Is it an evil emoji? Who or what is bigger than three?
Mile Me Deaf - Shiver from Holography out May 2nd via Siluh Records
Mile Me Deaf are such an active band that saying “Mile Me Deaf are back!” feels stupid. Anyway, they’re back with a new album! And here’s the first song off it! Download it for free!
Wolfgang Möstl has written a guided tour and thought of a cover art character for every song on this record. I appreciate that a lot because I am a very lazy music journalist and now I can just post a screenshot instead of painfully thinking of words. They’re also amusing.
One of us really likes skijumping and I was hoping she would pick this up and maybe explain what the hell is so interesting about this sport. She’s off at the moment, living her life or something, so it’s up to me to tell you that now, right after the 7 p.m. news, Ja, Panik will comment the skijumping world cup in Harrachov for the FM4 Homebase. Personally, I’m just listening to have a quirky story about what I did last night to tell to my colleagues tomorrow.
If you’re not online right now, that’s cool, it’ll be available to you for a whole week.
Moon Boots was actually the first of the songs from the Feinste Seide EP that the band played live, I think. At least I remember hearing this for the first time at a show pre-Plansch and thinking, this is bilderbuch-crazy as usual and greater than ever. And then the track didn’t even make it onto the digital version of the EP at first! Luckily it is available now.

Bulbul - Fire from Hirn Fein Hacken, out on March 28 via Rock Is Hell/Exile on Mainstream
I don’t know, you guys. This is supposed to be super avant garde-y and weird and shit, which usually translates to “This needs ten listens before you can appreciate it” but I think that Fire, the first release from Bulbuls first full-length album in six years, is pretty straight forward råsk’n’roll musis.
Wow, how many record labels can one single act have? Four, apparently, in the case of New Native, an indie emo punk band that appeared on the radar rather suddenly and has been taking steps very professionally ever since.
