HVOB - Always Like This (They Shoot Music)
As you might have noticed, when it comes to HVOB - or any other hype topic, for that matter - we tend to approach things with a healthy dose of scepticism. And while I still don’t understand the insane amount of response the project has been getting, compared to other projects that would, in my opinion, deserve the same, I have decided to be more positive about it, and that may or may not have to do with the awesome shirt with the municipal coat of arms pattern HVOB half Paul Wallner was wearing at the Amadeus aftershow party.
What I’m saying is, if you’re wearing nerdily patterned shirts Walzerkönig editors will instinctively take to you.
Sweet Sweet Moon - I See Things That You Don’t See And That Is Blue, Blue, Black And Dylan in a ballett studio in Tucumán
They Shoot Music are giving us first glimpses of how their project Fuck The Atlantic Ocean is going and the tagline for this video is “Waltz & Ballett”. Posted for obvious reasons.
Fuck the Atlantic Ocean - Crowdfunding trailer
This is a trailer to a project of Sweet Sweet Moon and They Shoot Music Don’t They. Together, they will tour South America, play concerts and document the journey with a full-length movie.
SSM and TSM has been a great combination in the past and if this is something you’d like to see more of, help the project out on indiegogo.
Der Nino aus Wien - Die letzte Reise (They Shoot Music Session)
Ja, das ist das Lied, das die Käsefrage bei unserem Interview mit dem Nino aus Wien (ansehen hier) inspiriert hat, und außerdem hat es auch diesen großartigen Refrain, der so viel Wahrheit beinhaltet, dass man fast wieder an so etwas wie Wahrheit glaubt.
Weil ich find, es zahlt sich einfach nicht aus, dauernd alle zu meiden, die man liebt. Und wir lieben uns doch auch. Wieso machen wir’s uns so schwer? Fahren wir einfach eine Woche ans Meer. Die letzte Reise ist schon viel zu lange her.
Nowhere Train - Ashes (They Shoot Music Session)
Are they really singing, “When I die put my ashes in a bottle of beer”? Okok. Anyway. What better location for a They Shoot Music session with Nowhere Train could there possibly be than the almost finished new Hauptbahnhof in Vienna?
Nowhere Train will be performing at the Stadtsaal in Vienna on December 10 together with Esteban’s. We’re giving away 1x2 tickets to their show on our Facebook page!

Ja, wir haben dein Tagebuch gelesen; das ist unser gutes Recht
Ginga - One Of Us (They Shoot Music Primavera Sound Sessions)
Mother says I was a dancer before I could walk.
- ABBA, Thank You For The Music
One Of Us is not the only thing on the The Nights EP that makes a (conscious?) reference to ABBA. This EP, by the way, took forever to see the light of day. When I saw Ginga for the first time (and one night before I left for my exchange year), they had just re-recorded and re-released their debut album after having been the first Popfest’s sensational discovery. When they came to my exchange country eight months later, they not only filled the town’s main square with people, but they also played Dancer - which sounded slightly different then than it does now on the EP - but no details of an upcoming album were known yet.
Fast forward to a year later: Even at the official EP release concert in Vienna this spring, the four tracks weren’t available yet. However, finally (and without a big noise, at least I wasn’t aware of it until recently), since June it is out, and it sounds rougher than the debut album, while at the same time still being every bit as catchy and energetic.

Everyone knows that GIF stands for Greatest Internet Fun of all time, and because you guys are lazy bastards who don’t watch music videos we are breaking them down for you into four of these moving pictures. And now that you’ve seen how amazing this has turned out, maybe watch the whole video too?
