An und für sich sagt man über mich, dass ich eine gute Partie bin, weil ich Ländereien besitze.
Im Backstagekammerl des Wiener B72 haben uns Atomic Stereo (oder Atomic Styria?) allerhand über Frank Lloyd Wright, die Sehenswürdigkeiten in Öberösterreich, ihre Lieblingsbands und den Songwritingprozess erzählt.
Neigungsgruppe Sex, Gewalt und Gute Laune - Hooligan der Herzen ft. Oliver Welter (Naked Lunch cover)
Ich habe sowohl dieses Lied als auch das Original schon dutzende Male gehört und ich WEISS, dass ich nicht recht habe, aber trotzdem: Jedes Mal wenn die Zeile "Wir ham uns gestern gestern fruah erst truffn" kommt und dann als nächstes "wir ham so vü gemeinsam", denk ich mir, Nein, nein, nein, so geht das nicht, das müsste "wir ham so vü gesoffen" heißen! Jedes Mal.
Weil was sich reimt ist gut und Alkohol in einem Neigungsgruppe-Lied wär ja auch nix Neues.
Cid Rim - Fade (Live Edit)
I’d never even seen Cid Rim around in Vienna, a place where you come across everyone eventually, until the Waves weekend, where I saw him twice in one day and he turned out to be the doppelgänger of a very good friend and we took a fun Instagram photo and then afterwards everyone had way too many shots and I danced to The Prodigy?
Chili and the Whalekillers - Turn
This song is so adorably twee and summery that I’m willing to ignore the clichéd forest images. Plus, sparklers. I’m a sucker for those. I wouldn’t waste them on daylight, though.
Bilderbuch - Maschin
This video fits the Maschin sound like a hand in a (yellow) glove.
Mile Me Deaf - All that she wants (Ace of Base cover)
Our love for Eurotrash shouldn’t be a secret, so Mile Me Deaf digging up this treasure (with kazoos!) from their archives, gave us much joy.
Two crappy cellphone pictures of FRANCIS INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT and VELOJET, Red Box Mödling, 19 October 2013
We love Francis International Airport. We love Velojet. And we love roadtrips. So the combination of all those three things is about the best way to spend a Saturday evening - even if the “roadtrip” part is just a 20 minutes S-Bahn ride. Probably only a boat could have made that night even better (hint! we need more gigs on boats!).
Houdini - Breaking Backs
My most favourite magician used to be the Masked Magician. I loved watching his show, learning how all the illusions of Copperfield and his magician friends worked. I’m wondering if the guys from Houdini also know some magic tricks - considering them sharing the same name with one of the most famous illusionists of all time. I’ll definitely ask them when they play at rhiz later this month. Until then, this is their latest video - without magic, but with some crazy dancing moves. And confetti!
We were just talking about kapsalon, which is really good. It’s kebab with fries and melted cheese on top.
Our camerawoman was drunk and our light technician non-existent when we asked Melle and Ernst from Mozes And The Firstborn (freshly announced for SXSW!) about their German skills, Dutch food, Dutch proverbs, Dutch schlager, Austrian rappers and touring the rest of the world.
Velojet - Cold Hands
Is your blood as cold as your cold hands are?
Is your mind as weak as my hands are?
Marta - Could We Please All Fall In Love
Here’s a somewhat unpopular opinion: Horses are shit.
Ponies are OK though. Marta are even better.

Amere Meander – Something I Am Not (MP3)
Three kindergarten friends form a band and make pop music. Viennese Amere Meander appeared out of nowhere with songs that are sometimes dreamy and sweet, sometimes mysterious and noisy, drawing inspiration from anything from shoegaze to Fleetwood Mac. Always catchy but never unpredictable, Something I Am Not is taken from their debut album To Lead Astray.

Musicians are boring and wankers.
We talked to Japanther backstage at Vienna’s Flex Café just before their show for Waves Vienna 2013, where they discussed their various artistic interests, playing “would you rather”, collaborating with other artists and their most recent EP.
One crappy cellphone picture of GIN GA, brut, Vienna, October 12
The presentation of the new album Yes / No can only be called a success. The gig was classic Gin Ga: energetic, strong drums, the wonderful violin and this time with a bit more synthie-pop sounds, which are very present on the upcoming record. The choice of venue couldn’t have been better, since I really love brut for concerts and Gin Ga just feel right there. As a regular visitor of Gin Ga gigs, many songs have been heard in some kind of form and it’s nice to see how the songs have developed. All the hits of the upcoming record were well presented and inbetween accompanied by some old classics. Especially the 30 minute encore made everybody dance and included one of my personal favourites No Limit.
The most fun and adorable parts of the concert were Alex Konrad fiddeling with and repeatedly breaking the microphone stand, him trying to take a nice crappy cellphone picture of the audience and of course the cute smiles/smirks he puts on while performing.
