Freibad - A.geh Wirklich?
I kind of prefer listening to summery tunes in winter to listening to them in their proper season. In winter, you get nostalgic and only remember ditching school and talking about boyyyyyyyyssssss in the Gänsehäufel whereas in the summer, you’re stuck in a smelly bus and remember burning your feet on the concrete floors of Stadionbad.

CHVRCHES - Recover (Cid Rim Remix)
A band that allegedly replaces a U with a V for improved googleability is a band to my liking. Way too few bands think of us poor fans and bloggers. I mean, try and find out anything about bands that are called Bro or Duo B&T. I am amazed that Google knows me well enough to place results of the band first when I’m looking up “Sex Jams”. So, go Chvrches! And go Cid Rim! This is a nice remix.
Why do I go? - Ian Fisher & The Present
The new Ian Fisher & The Present video for “Why do I go” (directed by Anna Kohlweis/Squalloscope) shows a completely different approach to packing than I have - Where’s all my crap, I should’ve left five minutes ago!? Then again, if I could turn back time, I’d maybe also lay everything out neatly before cramming it into a backpack.
Ja, es war eine wunderbare Geburt, und die Verpflegung im Kreißsaal war optimal.
Gemütlich bei weißen Spritzern und Bier hat uns The End Band am 5. Februar im Weinhaus Sittl ein paar Fragen zu ihrem Debütalbum Babysounds beantwortet, bevor sie dieses später gleich gegenüber im Wiener Rhiz präsentiert hat.
Naked Lunch bei Willkommen Österreich, 5. Februar 2013
“Die Aktion findet nicht wahrhaft statt, sondern man imitiert sie.” Somewhere between a rock & roll lifestyle and suicidal apathy, Naked Lunch have recently released the sort of album that has the ability to make hearts jump. At least until the new Francis International Airport record comes out, it is definitely my favourite album of 2013, and after their appearance on Willkommen Österreich I think I am entirely in love with this band.

Sex Jams – Shark vs Apple (MP3)
The alternate girl/boy singing on Shark Vs Apple and its saucy, playful lyrics make it an instant favourite. Basically, the first single from the new Sex Jams album Trouble, Honey is what Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta would have sounded like had Grease been a noise-rock musical. Half of Sex Jams also play in May 2012’s MAP band and this year’s Eurosonic favourites Mile Me Deaf.

March 15: AT, Wien, Gartenbaukino (Release Party)

Love & Fist - My Hometown
4 GIFs and a sentence per music video
Simple yet brilliant music video that features Love & Fist revisiting childhood places and channeling their inner teenagers; on an unrelated note, that first GIF shows one of the very first dance moves I ever learned in my jazzdance class in school.
Funky Town :: Watch
Sweet Sweet Moon seem(s) to be doing well in Italy. There are very nice photos on their Tumblr. (Props to Siluh’s Thomas for convincing all of the Siluh artists to start their own Tumblrs!)
And don’t forget to maybe help fund the Fuck The Atlantic Ocean project of They Shoot Music and Sweet Sweet Moon. Anybody who makes animated GIFs is worthy of some support I think.
The Sun (Video no. 2) - Naked Lunch
I was completely mesmerized by the first video so when I first heard that there’d be a second one, I thought, what the hell for? The first video didn’t have this wonderful child and men in masks I can’t quite figure out though, so I’m A-OK with it.
Fuck the Atlantic Ocean - Crowdfunding trailer
This is a trailer to a project of Sweet Sweet Moon and They Shoot Music Don’t They. Together, they will tour South America, play concerts and document the journey with a full-length movie.
SSM and TSM has been a great combination in the past and if this is something you’d like to see more of, help the project out on indiegogo.
One crappy cellphone picture per band, The Melody Men, club d’hommage at fluc, Vienna, February 9th, 2013
We’re the kind of people that use Udo Jürgens icons, so of course we attended this event. The Melody Men played songs by all the best people (Connie Francis, Johnny Cash, Peter Cornelius, Elvis Presley, Van Morrison, EAV), charmed the audience with wonderful announcements and, obviously, wore the best jackets. We assume they all ate fried eggs afterwards.
Rika - Restless, from the very, very beautifully titled How To Draw A River, Step By Step, out on 15 February on Goddamn Records / Count Your Lucky Stars
Listen to this. Do it. Then download Port Dover for free from diffuser.fm.
One crappy cellphone picture per band, The Beth Edges, Kino Siska, Ljublijana, February 8th 2013
The Beth Edges are a band that remind you of that originality is not quality and while they might not be terribly original, they’re not terribly unoriginal and their execution is flawless. These kids know what they’re doing. They’re effortlessly switching from the acoustic keys-and-brass ballad to the Brit inspired mid 00s indie rock songs they’re known for so who cares if one of their songs begins like the Babyshambles “Delivery”.
I’m sorry. Apparently I can’t write a positive review without sounding like a dick. I enjoyed the show is what I meant to say.
