Interstellar ring of fire - Mile Me Deaf
MMD do country in a delightfully weird way and that’s pretty much all there is to say about this song that appears on A Blast From Da Past. Which, by the way, you can still download for free.
Mile Me Deaf - Walking Maze
OK, so remember how we vowed we wouldn’t post any more music videos by Austrian bands that were shot in the woods? We’re making an exception for this one. It’s hilarious. Happy Halloween!
One crappy cellphone picture per band, Mile Me Deaf, fluc, October 6th
Would you believe me if I told you that I had never seen Mile Me Deaf prior to that night? It’s a combination of early ignorance, living abroad and never being home when they played. Which is why it was so important to catch them this time and it was absolutely delightful. I personally think it’s impossible to be in a bad mood when listening to Eat Skull because it is such a cheerful album and the same can be said about Mile Me Deaf shows (well, the one I attended). Not to get all hippy dippy on you, but there were some very good vibes at the show. So good in fact, that we fed on them for the entirety of the night and just hung around the fluc until 5 a.m.
and here’s a live video from the show on friday night. it was a m a z i n g.
I agree, but also I’m posting this video of the Mile Me Deaf album release show at Gartenbaukino (June 1) for the dancing label bosses and the guitarist’s pants, which, our sources tell us, are from the women’s department of New Yorker.
Very late in the day, but still on the 15th of the month, we bring to you the most interesting new and free tracks from around the world, curated by international music bloggers and publications with an eye on their local scenes, this month with Austria’s MILE ME DEAF.
Mile Me Deaf – Wild At Heart
Mile Me Deaf is one of the other bands Killed By 9V Batteries’ Wolfgang Möstl plays in. And although side-projects - such an unfair name for a 500+ songs oeuvre - are usually a space for weird shit your band mates didn’t agree to, their first album Eat Skull, and especially the first single Wild At Heart, is surprisingly free of noise and distortion. Instead, it creates the last-day-of-summer-holidays feeling you know from Girls and Beach House.
June 1: AT, Wien, Gartenbau Kino (Record Release Show)
August 4: AT, Salzburg, Rockhouse (STUCK! Festival)
