Dust Covered Carpet - Mouthflower, from the Dust Covered Carpet / Die Eternias Split 7”
This new Dust Covered Carpet song is as depressed as usual, lyrics-wise, but sounds quite different, less folky than previous tracks, maybe due to line-up changes. I think I like it!

Wir würden den Draken, der Richtung Langenlebern steht, rosa anmalen, und rundherum würden wir Hanf- und Hopfenpflanzen setzen.
Am 30. November waren wir vor der Albumreleaseshow der Eternias bei ebenselbigen im Backstagebereich des Wiener Flex und haben alles über die korrekte Aussprache des Bandnamens, Eisprinzessinnen, Kreisverkehrdekorationen, Zirkusattraktionen und Realityshows erfahren.
Die Eternias played an acoustic version of To The Monkey in the Flex Vienna backstage area for us prior to their album release show on November 30, 2012. We’re n00bs so the video quality is mediocre. The quality of the performance is a lot more appealing!
Die Eternias - To The Monkey, from Sould Out, out on 23 November on Seayou
From relaxed sounds to circus music to surf country to reggae, Die Eternias stand for a wild mix of genres. There is even space for some cowbell and a short Get Ur Freak On hommage, as well as a lyrical shoutout to fellow Seayou label colleague A Thousand Fuegos. Despite all this eclecticism, however, each song is clearly and instantly recognizable as an Eternias song.

What a wonderfully weird and colourful world Die Eternias have built for themselves, both visually and soundwise.

Die Eternias - Waits
Ich geh jeden Tag in den Prater… oh wait, that is a different band. Aber die Gegenwart hängt auch den Eternias zum Hals raus.
One (very) crappy cellphone picture per band: Die Eternias, opening for Ja, Panik, October 5th, Arena Wien
The last time we saw Die Eternias (die Etörnias, bitte, or, as our dear friend L. calls them, Eternitas, which is even better), the singer sang into a megaphone. We thought this was a gimmick but when he didn’t lose it after the third song, we knew that it would stay and thought this was a thing they did.
Their concert as a support act of Ja, Panik was a very jovial affair, less dressed up and much livelier than the last one, plus it was megaphone-free and you could actually understand the lyrics. Which is important, because lyrics are important.
