    IPEK YOLU

    Tropical Anatolia

    Ipek Yolu ist der türkische Name für die Seidenstraße, die Asien und mit Europa verbindet. Die Karawane Ipek Yolu beschäftigt sich nun nicht mit dem Transport von Seide, sondern sammelt vielmehr die Aromen, Düfte und Klänge aus den unterschiedlichsten Teilen der Welt und verbindet sie. Sie vereint basslastige Electro-Cumbia-Grooves, Saz-Riffs und Surfgitarren zu einem multikulturellen Schmelztiegel aus südamerikanischen Rhythmen, anatolischer Volksmusik und psychedelischem Rock der 60er Jahre. Es entsteht ein einzigartiges Klanguniversum, eine kaleidoskopischen Mischung aus Musik, die den tropischen Dschungel und die staubigen Wüsten verbindet. Ipek Yolu hat 2020 genutzt, um ihr Debütalbum Tropical Anatolia zu schreiben und sind mehr als bereit, die Bühnen der Clubs und Festivals zu besuchen. Die Mitglieder von Ipek Yolu trafen sich zum ersten Mal während des Aarhus Roots & Hybrid Festivals im Jahr 2018 zu einer improvisierten Jam-Session. Die Show war als einmaliger Auftritt von Mitgliedern der Bands Hudna und Junglelyd geplant. Die Chemie stimmte und angefeuert durch das Publikum dauerte das Konzert fast drei Stunden. Schnell stand fest, etwas Besonders war entstanden - die Essenz aus zwei Bands, die für groovende Partys bekannt sind und zu der sich musikalische Neugier und Improvisation gesellt. Die drei Mitglieder von Ipek Yolu sind seit mehreren Jahren Teil der dänischen Musikszene. Bandleader Orhan Özgür Turan ist ein bekannter und angesehener Saz-Spieler nicht nur in Dänemark und hat wegweisend den Sound der anatolischen Folk-Band Hudna geprägt. 2018 gewann er bei den Danish World Music Awards die Auszeichnung als Global Roots Artist des Jahres. Olaf Brinch und Lasse Aagaard spielen seit vielen Jahren in den unterschiedlichsten Bands zusammen und sind ständig auf der Suche nach dem unterschiedlichen Tönen dieser Welt. Und so entwickelten sie ausgehend vom Cumbia bei Junglelyd über den Afrobeat bei African Connection ihren eigenen Sound. Beide tourten durch Ghana, spielten und lernten von CC Yoyo, dem ehemaligen Schlagzeuger von Fela Kuti und sind noch an unzähligen weiteren Projekten beteiligt. Alle diese Erfahrungen wurden nun vereint, um mit Ipek Yolu den weiten Genre der Weltmusic den Bereich Tropical Anatolia hinzuzufügen.

    CHAIN AND THE GANG

    In Cool Blood

    This is a Pre-Order. Releasedate is the 20.july 2021. Das dritte, 2012 erschienene Album von Chain & The Gang besitzt einen attraktiven Joker: Katie Alice Greer – die charismatische Sängerin der Priests übernimmt in allen Songs die zweite Stimme. Und egal ob sie nur ein spitzes „Yeah!“ herausstößt, oder wie in „Free Will“ den Song komplett übernimmt – ihre Präsenz steht spürbar im Raum. „In Cool Blood“ ist so eine Art Bonnie-&-Clyde-, oder Nancy-&-Lee-Album geworden: abenteuerlich, sexy und ziemlich von sich selbst überzeugt. Die Balance zwischen den beiden unterschiedlichen Stimmen ist perfekt austariert, die Songs sind lässig, aber auf den Punkt. Es geht diesmal weniger gegen den Kapitalismus und mehr um das Ausleben persönlicher Freiheit. „Heavy Breathing“, feiert die Freuden des nächtlichen Telefon-Sex; „Free Will“ singt Greer so rotzig selbstbewusst, als habe sie einem übergriffigen Typen soeben einen schmerzhaften Tritt in die Weichteile verpasst: „I don‘t believe in free will. I just do what I feel, that is the deal, I don‘t believe in free will“. Kenner hören da sicher auch Anklänge an die Delmonas oder Holly Golightly. Es ist schwer, diese Mischung aus lauerndem Garagen-Rock und ironischen Posen und Bekenntnissen nicht zu mögen. Chain & The Gang haben sich hiermit ihre eigene Welt erschaffen, eine heftig brodelnde Petrischale voller Songs und Storys, die Vergangenheit und Zukunft des Rock‘n‘Roll zusammenführt. "Not for the weak of heart or the slow of brain, „In Cool Blood“ is for the hot of blood, the quick of temper, and the hard of sleeping. Recorded in a spontaneous, ad lib session of dream led automatic writing/rocking, „In Cool Blood“ was made at a Surrealist stomp session in the bowls of Olympia." – CHAIN & THE GANG manager Johnny Sincere

    CHAIN AND THE GANG

    Music's Not For Everyone

    [engl] This is a Pre-Order. Releasedate is the 13.july 2021. Released in 2011, Chain & The Gang's second album, like its predecessor, was once again produced by Calvin Johnson at Dub Narcotic Studio. The lineup is also mostly the same, with the small difference that there are now five background singers who answer (in different songs) the calls of Ian Svenonius: Tara Jane O'Neil, Veronica Ortuño, Susanna Patten, Sarah Pedal and Katy Davidson. "Why Not" challenges everyday common sense and the established rules to an energetic blues shuffle. "Detroit Music" sounds like dirty jabs and the Dirtbombs, "Detroit Music II" plays the ball on, towards a heavy monster jam. Brilliant! The title track is then again in a class of its own: to psychedelic laments familiar from the Stooges' "We Will Fail," Svenonius mocks the tastes of the naïve "I actually listen to everything" consumer: "I know you wanna share. But don't!" he spits contemptuously at their feet. In the era of Spotify & Co., Svenonius accepts the accusation of snobbery: "Does a moth know a flame, just because it's drawn to it? "Svenonius sells it all with conviction and a devilish twinkle in his eye. He means what he says, and also knows how absurd it all is. These 12 tracks serve as a bombastic backdrop for Svenonius' treatises on living the life of an anti-capitalist svengali; they're a guerrilla garage rock manifesto imbued with fever, fervour and soul." - The Quietus

    SONS OF CYRUS

    Can you Dig It

    Die Geschichte des Rock’n’Roll ist auch eine Geschichte der Missverständnisse. Eine dieser falschen Auslegungen betrifft das Wort Sex (verewigt in der beru?hmtesten aller Phrasen). Ich bin der festen U?berzeugung, daß im Rock’n’Roll Hauptanziehungsgrund und Attraktivität nicht die Vorstellung an die schno?de Vereinigung korpulierender Körper, sondern vielmehr die sinnliche Ausstrahlung der Kunst und seiner Interpreten an sich ausmachen. Ein in diesem Zusammenhang meiner Meinung nach oft bewußt falsch eingesetztes Argument ist die überbordende Maskulinität. Bei genauer Betrachtung sind Muskelmänner allerdings eher die Ausnahme. Warum ich diese Einleitung wähle? Vor 25 Jahren, zum Beginn der Hochzeit des skandinavischen Rocks, gründet sich in Stockholm eine Band, deren Musik und Songs ich bis heute ohne zu Zögern mit den Worten sexy, lustvoll, anziehend, verführerisch oder auch erotisch bezeichnen würde. Diese Band, gestartet von vier schma?chtigen Jungs, machte all das, was für mich diese Großartigkeit dieses Genres verkörperte. Der Rock, den ich mag, war immer der Rock der Straße und nicht der Stadien, der Rock der Underdogs und nicht der cleveren Unternehmer. Es war der Rock, der seine Funktionalita?t eben nicht aus meterhohen Verstärkertürmen, sondern eben aus der Sexyness der souligen Songs zog. Die Rede ist von Sons of Cyrus, vielleicht eine der am meisten unterbewertetsten Bands dieser Gattung. Gegru?ndet 1996 von Erik, Love, Mackie und Topi, spa?ter dann, nachdem Erik die Band verließ, weitergefu?hrt mit Max und Torgny an der Harmonika, spielen sie 3 Alben und 7 Singles ein. Alle Songs zeichnet eine wohltuende Schnoddrigkeit aus, sie wirken wie die durch die Zahnlücke gedrückten Pfiffe einer Bande Straßenjungs. Frech, anmaßend und unverschämt. Sie wollen nicht wissen, was die Welt kostet, denn diese gehört ihnen bereits. Diese DoppelLP vereint verschiedenen Singles und Samplerbeiträge und ist für mich ein Dankeschön an all die tollen Erinnerungen, die ich mit ihnen und durch sie hatte und für dich eine nette Gelegenheit, endlich mal wieder toll geilen Garagenpunk zu kaufen.

    50 KAITENZ, THE

    s/t

    [engl] This is a Pre-Order. Releasedate is the 29.june 2021. If you think carefully about why Turbonegro, Guitar Wolf, The Dirtbombs, or even the entire Crypt Band catalog are of such authoritative relevance, it can all be traced back to two simple facts. Fact one. They understood their style of playing rock’n’roll. This realization sounds succinct at first, after all, any band would claim this. Only in reality most of them fail miserably. First copying others and then copying themselves is no innovation and just adds another copy to the meter records, no “most authentic” or original equipment helps, because it fails because of the songs. Fact two, and maybe this is the most underestimated factor, is the lack of humor. Without humor, you can’t play good rock’n’roll. Why am I writing this? I have seen the light, THE 50 KAITENZ from Osaka play 60s Punk as I wish it and that in a perfection that makes me dizzy. Alone the transitions from the chorus to the verse are so cleverly placed that you slap your thighs with joy, without being able to speak a single word of Japanese, you catch yourself intoning the songs loudly at an inappropriate room volume and even start to play the obligatory air guitar with pleasure. THE 50 KAITENZ, of course, don’t play pure 60s punk. Similar to Turbonegro, they have devoured 70 years of rock’n’roll history and, not to use the more appropriate word, use it shamelessly for their purposes. Punk, country, garage or beat – everything is scrutinized, distilled, stirred, shaken and stirred again to be unleashed on your auditory canals in irreverent perfection. I’m thrilled by all the tongue-in-cheek quotes, because what comes out of it is probably the most independent thing I’ve heard in the last few years in this hard-working field.

    CHAIN AND THE GANG

    Down With Liberty... Up With Chains!

    [engl] This is a Pre-Order. Releasedate is the 22.june 2021. The 2009 debut album from the chain gang led by Ian Svenonius (Nation of Ulysses, The Make-Up, Weird War) is a masterpiece of primitivism. From dazzling set pieces of R&B and rock'n'roll, the band forms highly melodic songs full of call-and-response chants ("What Is A Dollar"), or invites you to take a walk through the cemetery ("Cemetry Map"), which sounds so spooky as if voodoo master Dr. John had thought it up. Sometimes Svenonius just grabs a wooden guitar to make fun of conspiracy theories like in "Deathbed Confessions": "I faked the moon landing, I saved Hitler's brain. Yeah, it's in Argentina but it controls the USA." Calvin Johnson produced the album at his Dub Narcotic studio and also did a bit of background vocals. The beat lurches and sways as confidently and surely as an old sea dog's gait in a breeze of doppelkorn. The somewhat odd album title is explained by the always conceptually thinking singer as follows: "Everywhere freedom goes, it leaves a path of destruction. Fast food, bad architecture, materialism, unbridled greed, destroyed environment, imperial conquests, class struggle; combined, these phenomena are seemingly synonymous with freedom." When big words often hide only capitalist greed and imperialist war, Svenonius & Co. prefer to slip into the role of dissidents. "Ian Svenonius is an inadvertent pioneer. His career has been a studied attempt to advance the history of punk rock, using influences as tools to build with rather than styles to flaunt and discard." - The Wire

    WHEN THERE IS NONE

    Fuck Death

    [engl] From the first few riffs of “Fuck Death!”, you can tell that you are in for a special treat. This is not your typical 3-chord punk rock wasteland - this is a very well written post hardcore/punk album. And it took those 4 guys only 6 years to record it... These 12 songs show that When There Is None perfected their sound & songwriting over the past years. The album has more melodies than power chords and more sing-alongs than boredom. Sounding like a hybrid somewhere between the Sainte Catherines, Leatherface and Hot Water Music - this album keeps on growing with every spin. Also, finally a concept we all can agree on. Fuck Death!

You may know the man behind the mask from his other exquisite projects SORDID SHIP or COUPE GORGE, in which, above all, he extensively expresses his preference for Oi! On the debut LP, as on the previous singles, he rather shows his passion for synthpunk and then simply combines both preferences into a pretty great and awesome style of Punk. Super melodic synth parts mix with angry Oi Punk and Roll sound. Voilà: CUIR. This LP comes on beautiful rose marbled vinyl!

Yes, you can dance to this, cry, drink and smash the goddamn State to this. All at the same time. A perfect mixture of The Spits, Wipers & Brat Farrar.

    [engl] IconAclass is a passion project from MC/producer Will Brooks. Best known as MC dälek, the front person and co-producer in experimental Hip Hop group Dälek. He has explored the left of center/ wall of noise world ala My Bloody Valentine meets Public Enemy on 8 studio albums and numerous collaborations. Their sophomore full length album Changing Culture with Revolvers features MC dälek back on production and Emcee duties, and recruits long time deadverse massive & Labteksmember, Dev-One on vocals as well. The contrast in voice and rhyme style provides the album with a brand new take on hard hitting gritty East Coast Hip Hop. As always, cuts are provided by Mixmaster Motiv. Changing Culture with Revolvers is poised to open eyes and in?ltrate eardrums. Pure hip-hop, hypnotic, heavy beats serve as more than just a backdrop. They focus a spotlight squarely on the lyrics, and iconAclass has a lot on their mind! 12 tracks with a heady blend of lyrics and grimy East Coast Boom-Bap beats skewed through the Deadverse prism.

    Knuckle Girls Vol. 2 (14 pugilistic platters from the only glitter girls that matter )

    [engl] An extract from the novel “Bovver Birds Rool” (…continued) “That must hurt”, said Dave. He hovered over Sue as she shakily tried to return to her feet. “Well help me, then”, barked Sue with a pained expression, “don’t just flippin’ stand there”. “I think this fell off”, said Dave as he handed Sue back her bloodied Marc Bolan rosette. “Great”, snapped Sue, “Steve’s only just given me that… Which way did they go?” “Don’t be daft”, said Dave, “you’re in no fit state.” At Tuesday night’s Stall Street Disco, Dawn and Jane were busy victory dancing to their anthem, Hector’s “Wired Up”, darting hard-faced Knuckle Girl glares at any boy daring enough to comment on their togetherness with an ill-advised wink and a nudge to his immediate neighbour. Meanwhile, Sue had invested her last 2p in a phone call to her best mate “Sand”, short for Sandra. “Sand” was the self-elected leader of the Bovver Birds, the female contingent of The Larkhall Legion, who were beginning to assemble around the entrance to the disco. “Tired of living?” were the last words Dawn heard as her face hit the floor. “You cow!,” Dawn screamed, as she pulled out the remnants of her own front tooth and threw it in the face her towering tormentor. “The Knuckle Girls buckle and the Bovver Birds win. Again!,” announced Sand in a loud but deadpan voice over the continuing Hector music. “We’ll leave you alone now to bury your dead. … “Birds” is still the word, and you’ve should been shat on from a great height. Next time, bitches!” A bow-tied bouncer strong-armed “Sand” from the hall, dragging her by the arms as she still tried to pitch a globule of carefully-harvested spittle over her agitator. “And there’s a greeny for you,” she shrieked with delight as it landed successfully.

    BEYOND LOUIE

    Dual Visions

    [engl] Somewhere in a remote place called Hawkfield, not far from the city of Stockholm, Sweden, music, dreams, visions, goblins & robots, come to life. There are stories to tell, signs and paths to follow, towards the horizon and beyond. Beyond Louie (Love Jonasson) is a singer and an artist who creates tunes and melodies on synths and guitars.

    WHIFFS, THE

    Another Whiff

    [engl] Can you smell what The Whiffs are cookin? Hint: it’s not Phish, Meatloaf or a String Cheese Incident. Nope – Kansas City’s prodigal sons of power pop are sticking to what they know on Another Whiff, their debut full-length for Dig! Records. Since 2017’s Take A Whiff EP, the band has been busy allowing their auditory aromas to ripen with the addition of Joey Rubbish (of The Rubs) for a fuller, more robust sonic bouquet. While the band can still get it up for Stiff Records – their pop-centric punk remains in full force – the album takes detours down lonelier roads in broken-hearted ballads from the heartland. No rocks left unturned on a journey forged by pioneers like Chilton and later Westerberg, the looming legacy of Petty and the cosmic country harmonies of The Byrds before them. In a year’s span, The Whiffs took their time recording, on and off, in their makeshift basement practice space: Electric Babyland. This pace and environs allowed the new lineup to coalesce, and get tour-tight on the road with La Luz, Bad Sports and Patsy’s Rats. The result is a unique album that is at once sprawling in direction and precise in execution, with all the sonic stank you’d expect from sweaty beer plied basement sessions. Out of the gate, “Shakin All Over” will register to all of the senses, like you’re squatting in the corner of the basement, imbibing with the band and absorbing every hit from Jake’s C&C kit (note the frivolous plug for Jake’s drum company). After untold nights into the wee hours of the morning, 14 tracks emerged as Another Whiff. Expertly recorded by Joey, mixed by Vince Lawhon and mastered by Jordan Richardson; the final package sounds like the sum of its parts, and all the beers in between. Another Whiff shirks a sell-by date and trends de jour, in favor of honest guitar driven, vocally infectious love songs for the ages. Timeless tunes and the triple-threat of Rory, Zach and Joey’s vocals set The Whiffs apart from their peers. Three distinct songwriters with their own personal flavors, delivering three-part harmonies for a unique rotation of upbeat punk belters (“Now I Know”), achy ballads (“She”) and triumphant tearjerkers (“How Could You”) that our troubled troubadours dispense like a Greatest Hits Factory for the last half-century of all of our all-time favorites.

    DANCER

    I'm Not Giving Up / Teenage Punk

    [engl] Haters be damned, and punishers beware; Dancer don’t suffer no fools! Here with an anthemic scorcher of an A-Side: “I’m Not Giving Up”, channels equal parts Cheap Trick & Thin Lizzy, delivering the ROCK GOD goods so convincingly its time to THROW your Kiss records out! Flip it over for “Teenage Punk”, a swirling synth punk slice of misfit solace with words to live by (“all our friends, we don’t have friends”). Six singles in, and Dancer proves there are sick new moves comin’ from the crew responsible for Apache, Glitz, and Slick! Recorded by Greg Ashley in a one and done press featuring awesome album art by the Human Lawnmower’s inimitable Avi Spivak.

    CLYDE AND THE NIGHTSWINGERS

    The Enormous Midnight and Nine Other Nocturnes

    [engl] Clyde and the Nightswingers came together to record the Theme song for a 1967 “Art Film.” If LSD ingested during a gathering of members of the U.S. Air Force and delinquent girls is your idea of an Art Film, then the only way to see it is to close your eyes and let The Enormous Midnight seep into your brain. The film is lost, but Nightswinger sounds are found on this Arcania International LP. Sounds kind of psychedelic, yes. But there’s more to the story and indeed a story it is. For the most part we hear a Garage band that seems to have been dropped into a vat of acid, then coming out as if totally Psyched! So – experimentation! That adds to a lost, M.I.A. quality, with a folkie (Clyde) trying his best to conjure up “lyrics as art” while singing/screaming them across this entire album. Yes, this tells a story, but despite death wish words and a long night of the soul, it ends happily. Because it’s just a (fuzzy/feedback/explosive/electrical) dream. But not music to go to sleep to.

    SWEEPING PROMISES

    Hunger for a Way Out

    [engl] Straight from the depths of an unused Boston-area concrete laboratory comes the debut of Sweeping Promises. Written and recorded with a patented ""single mic technique"" just before quarantine, ""Hunger for a Way Out"", is a post-punk leaning gem of unpolished DIY sound. The title track kicks things off in absolutely classic fashion, full of spirited hooks that echo the early Rough Trade sound. Angular guitars and sharp synth notes float atop a raw rhythm section, while Lira Mondal's effervescent vocals truly define Sweeping Promises' sound. There's something simple yet otherworldly about these tracks - you have the DIY prowess of Kleenex/LiLiPUT and Girls at Our Best!, a brooding new wave-y minimal synth sound woven in, and an undeniable pop-leaning appeal captured in vibrant monaural glory. It's hard to mistake these ten tracks of naturally urgent and driving post-punk for anything other than sheer brilliance. Sweeping Promises deliver in spades on ""Hunger for a Way Out"".

    Yaral Sa Doom

    Kosmische Avantgarde Sounds aus Senegal: "Yaral Sa Doom" ist ein bahnbrechendes Album, das Grenzen und musikalische Szenen überspannt. Inspiriert von westafrikanischen Traditionen, Sufi-Lobpreisliedern, spirituellem Jazz und Dub-Rhythmen, ist das Ergebnis ein genreübergreifender Einstieg in einen internationalen Sound, der seinesgleiche sucht. Hypnotische Perkussionsschleifen über wogenden Flächen, Call-and-Response-Gesänge, die sich über elektronische Beats legen, und Kinderstimmen, die zu Aufnahmen von rauschenden Wellen singen. 2018 reiste der schwedische Musikarchäologe und Leftfield-Musiker Karl Jonas Winqvist nach Toubab Dialaw im Senegal, einem kleinen Fischerdorf, das zum Zentrum der senegalesischen Boheme-Kunstszene wurde. In den nächsten Wochen kamen dort Musiker, Perkussionisten, Dichter und Beatmaker zusammen, um Ideen zu skizzieren und freie Improvisationen aufzunehmen. Winqvist kehrte nach Schweden zurück und tauschte die Aufnahmen über WhatsApp mit dem im Senegal lebenden Kollaborateur und Studiotechniker Arouna Kane hin und her. "Yaral Sa Doom" ist eine Wolof-Phrase, die "die Jugend erziehen" bedeutet. Im Zentrum des Albums steht das Thema Bildung, mit Songs, die sich direkt mit den sozialen Problemen des heutigen Senegals, mit Bildung und Immigration auseinandersetzen. "Heute muss man Kinder mit einem Instrument und Kunst erziehen, wenn man ihnen ein Instrument beibringt, lehrt man sie, ihren Geist zu benutzen", sagt Djiby Ly. Mit über 20 Mitwirkenden aus dem Senegal und Schweden ist das resultierende Album vielschichtig und komplex, behält aber eine zentrale Vision bei. "Es ist, als würde man ins Meer eintauchen", erklärt Kane. "Da schwimmen alle möglichen Arten von Fischen herum, aber zusammen bilden sie den Ozean." Nichtsdestotrotz ist es auch eine geografische Anomalie, die nur durch den Austausch im Internetzeitalter möglich wurde. "Yaral Sa Doom" ist eine außergewöhnliche Aufnahme und ein visionärer Einstieg in die Zukunft der transglobalen Zusammenarbeit.
