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.
just a quick comic about philosophy, writing about it and random dancing.
A comic by Anna Kohlweis about how the press text for the upcoming A Thousand Fuegos album The Treachery Of Things came into existence?

Why she is no longer mostly a bird we don’t know, but as Squalloscope Anna Kohlweis sounds graver, less cheerful than as Paper Bird. Nonetheless birds and other metaphors of freedom remain an important part of not only her blazer in the picture above, but also of her new album Soft Invasions, out on Seayou on March 16 (listen to the album in its entirety). Squalloscope is our second ever submission to the free monthly, worldwide Music Alliance Pact compilation.

Squalloscope – Domino
One-woman-factory Anna Kohlweis has released three albums as Paper Bird, however these days, she prefers her new alias Squalloscope. Goodbyes in bus terminals, long train rides, sitting on planes and bottles of wine have influenced her upcoming album Soft Invasions. Domino is a singer/songwriter take on R’n’B combined with postmodern lyrics: “I’m a copy of a copy of a copy of a woman, you’re the copy of a copy of a copy of a guy”.
March 27: AT, Wien, Rhiz (Album Release Show)
Among the other submissions to this month’s MAP we especially recommend Cosmo from Argentina (imagine the Arielle soundtrack sung by Devendra Banhart) and Brodsky (what Beirut would sound like if he were Russian). Also, we welcome El Parlante Amarillo from Colombia to the MAP blogger bunch. Listen to and read about the full February MAP compilation below:>> READ MORE >>
