Catastrophe & Cure - Like Crazy Doves
The band that sound so much like Kings Of Convenience when they’re playing live have made a video for their song Like Crazy Doves (off the album with the same title) that features a nightmarish variation of Plato’s allegory of the cave.
The Unused Word - Heaven (Testa Rmx)
I am completely and utterly in love with The Unused Word. Please do yourself a favour and listen to the original as well if you prefer your indie R&B with a little more warmth.
Plaided - Hold on Tight
I’m not a big fan of water and water sports so I was always of the opinion that the only reason surfing seems so cool is because of all the awesome surf music that is around. Plaided fit right into that tradition with that song.
Bonus: Baywatch style life guard.
Olympique - Eldorado
4 GIFs and a sentence per music video
I don’t know how y’all feel about sex jams (the actual jams, not the band) but if you’re into that be warned: this one is not for your casual fuck buddy; use it only for a person you’re about to develop proper feelings for and Eldorado will increase the rollercoaster feeling your stomach gives you.
It’s a new month and with all these amazing tour dates, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to try out new dance moves!

Kidcat Lo-Fi - Heart, from Kidcat Lo-Fi, out on 5 April 2013 on Problembär Records
My heart stopped beating, my brain stopped bleeding, and my soul’s probably still burning down in hell. But I keep on living ‘cause I don’t have any problems as I live my life as an empty shell
Painted On Silent Blue - Signs
This one woman, one piano project from Vienna makes nice music for a Sunday afternoon.
Sweet Sweet Moon - Am I Believer (Acoustic Sidesession)
Do you know that feeling when you learn more about something, and it ruins everything because you can no longer simply enjoy this something but instead automatically focus on technicalities? When you can no longer appreciate an idea and instead criticize its execution? That’s how I never want to feel about sound engineering or musical instrument expertise, and that’s unfortunately how I feel about video. I was never even aware of shaky camera action and now I’m just like, please use a tripod.
Robotra - Morning Light
The song: short and entertaining, the band: charmingly shy, the sound: perfect mix of noisy yet catchy. But how do you even play bass with mittens on?
Sex Jams - Just Kids (subtext.at Acoustic Session)
We love nice fisheye lenses and tags and stickers on toilets and, naturally, Sex Jams, who are unnaturally calm in this video.
Olympique - Eldorado
It may not always end well, but beautiful tattoed people in bed with each other in the morning is one of the most photogenic things ever, not just since Tumblr.
5/8erl in Ehr’n - Siasse Tschik (Mr. Urbs’ Dolby THC Mix feat. Keno)
And just when you thought 5/8erl in Ehr’n’s Siasse Tschik couldn’t get any more… let’s call it relaxed, Urbs comes along and proves you wrong.
S3 - All I Know
Attention, attention, cross promotion ahead: I made a soulful playlist on Spotify, which all of you should subscribe to, and although I created it on behalf of a major label (boo or whatever) with an already awesome R&B and hip hop repertoire (Beyoncé, Earl Sweatshirt, A$AP Rocky, Chakuza, Ciara and Ginuwine), I also sneaked in S3, James Hersey and Gerard to make it even better with some local flavour.
Sex Jams’ Top Sex Jams, presented by Scenesters’
Wenn die Isis nicht krank geworden wäre, hätte sie die Sex Jams ja nach ihren Lieblingsmarmeladen gefragt. Essen an erster Stelle, dann lange nichts und dann alles andere, so setzen wir unsere Prioriäten! Die geschätzten Kolleginnen von den Scenesters’ haben da ganz andere Interessen.
