S O H N - The Wheel (Nvie Motho Remix)
Both S O H N and Nvie Motho happen to live in Vienna, but until recently they had nothing to do with each other: S O H N used to be Trouble Over Tokyo and was rooted in the Austrian indie community, while Nvie Motho is best known for producing Gerard’s Lissabon, a cutting edge hip hop track. These are people from very different scenes who yet somehow belong to the same fashionable movement of combining electronic with r&b elements.
[This is what FM4 should be playing on heavy rotation. Internationally (or should I say internetionally? </badpun>), S O H N and Gerard are the ”homegrown” off-mainstream acts that get the most attention at the moment, yet they are being ignored (zero plays of either) by the one institution that should care about them: Austria’s “alternative and avantgarde” radio station. Oblivion to new developments is not going to help against the fading relevance of radio. Just saying.]
[ETA: I am sorry for the perceived FM4 bashing. At least in the case of S O H N, it is not the radio station’s fault but rather due to circumstances or a viral marketing strategy or whatever.]
S O H N - The Wheel
What used to be Trouble Over Tokyo is now S O H N. Already big on the music blogs. No need to reinvent the wheel but sometimes a name change can kickstart a career, apparently?
Trouble Over Tokyo - Kryptonite (Live at Poolbar Festival 2012)
So Trouble Over Tokyo is now officially history. However, I bet Mr. Taylor will return with a new project not long from now, so there’s no need to be too sad.
Trouble Over Tokyo: Camouflage (subtext.at Acoustic Session)
I missed the very last Trouble Over Tokyo gig in Vienna, ever, due to having ruined yet another Bankomatkarte. I made sure it came nowhere near a magnet this time but still it is not working anymore, like the three cards before it and not only does my Bankbetreuer think I’m the stupidest person on the planet but I also missed the very last Trouble Over Tokyo gig in Vienna, ever, because of it.
Bobby Long feat. Toph Taylor - She Wears Green at Sargfabrik in Vienna, Austria
As far as I am aware, this is the first time since this song was first performed on June 29, 2010 that Bobby and Toph have played it together on stage. In Kansas City…recorded by me… ——>
