Mauracher - Mind-Boggling, from Let’s Communicate, out this spring

The message is great and all, but I just don’t know. The video reminds me of that one time I was a backup dancer in a music video when I was sixteen and I had to suppress the urge to run away throughout the whole shoot.

Also, whatthefuck, Puber? Your tags even make it into music videos? I hope you’re happy. Jerk.

Mauracher - Super Seven

Yo Mauracher, didn’t you get the memo? Forests are so 2012. Child actors and dog actors, however: timeless.

Viereinhalb Minuten Swing And Roll (Dreieinhalb Minuten Rock’n’Roll / Fred Schreiber Cover)

Fred Schreiber is not only a musician (Fred Schreiber, Die Falschen Freunde) but also happens to be one of the makers of the Sendung ohne Namen. A whole lot of representatives of the local music scene gathered some time ago to record a version of one of Schreiber’s songs for the ORF show, including Gustav, The Beth Edges, Skero, Mauracher, pauT, Fuzzman, Der Nino aus Wien, Discoparty Brothers, Das trojanische Pferd, Kreisky, Heinz aus Wien, Attwenger, Christoph & Lollo, Kidcat Lo-Fi, Luise Pop, Garish, Florian Horwath, A Life, A Song, A Cigarette, Curbs, I-Wolf and Fred Schreiber himself.


Ping Ping  - “Skin”. After releasing their highly praised debut album “On The Run” in 2010 Loretta Who and Hubert Mauracher take the next step. The song “Skin” (which has recently been chosen for a big ad campaign) will be included on a new Ping Ping release “Under Your Skin EP” in January 2013. See the official video produced by luma.launisch.

Mauracher - You

Sounds and now also looks like skylines, dark alleyways, multiple layers, a tinge of red, bokeh, dramatic clouds and airplane wings.

Outer Space Dancer is the first single from the new, fourth Mauracher album Super Seven, out now on Fabrique Records. For this album, Tyrolean electronic musician Hubert Mauracher has teamed up with singer Sonia Sawoff (of Sawoff Shotgun).

Mauracher - Coma, from Super Seven, out now on Fabrique Records

If you, like me, still associate Mauracher with Meilenstein, the new album Super Seven will mess with your expectations. As the Profil has pointed out, what Hubert Mauracher, girlfriend Sonia Sawoff (of Sawoff Shotgun) and band are doing here is veritable dream pop.
