With 50+ bands spread over a period of almost 3 weeks, this festival is bringing to Padova (!!!) a […]

Painful, as I’ll never manage to get my hands on any of these little treasures, but here’s the first draft of what I am looking forward this April 20th (thanks to Wax Poetic — Vinyl Fanatic) – by L.P. Brian Eno x Nicolas Jaar x Grizzly Bear 12″ (features Nicolas Jaar remixing a track from […]

March. March was there, now it’s here. In the blink of an eye. And here we are again with an amazing playlist. I’ve just found out that I’ve listened to the whole Cave Singers‘ new album Naomi backwards. I was actually very impressed by the closing track, as it’s become pretty rare to hear a good […]

2013 will be all about Canadian music. So is the album I am personally expecting most this week, and one of the few I might actually buy on CD: Montreal trio Doldrums, performing live last week at East London hip and hippest venue Birthdays and this Tuesday at top venue Rough Trade East, will be releasing Lesser Evil […]

I can’t stand Spotify. They have the greatest business model and psychological consultants. They offer something you don’t need. For free. At the beginning you tolerate the limitations quite easily. Then slowly they start annoying you, badly. Then suddenly you realize you can’t stand their commercials anymore, and you get crazy and you want to […]

And here we go again with our selection of albums released this week. I was personally pretty excited to hear the new work by Apparat, since the new single Violent Sky has been published on Soundcloud. The whole album, Krieg and Frieden (Music for Theatre) is based on Sebastian Hartmann’s theatre production of Tolstoy’s War and […]

Listening now to the new Veronica Falls, Waiting for Something to Happen… which I recognize is a good title, quite self-explanatory. Here’s them performing My Heart Beats live on Seattle-based radio station KEXP about a year ago: Quite different attitude and style for the noise/hardcore band Pissed Jeans, new album Honeys out on SubPop this […]

Adam Ant, 58, sings about Kate Moss in “Blueblack Hussar in Marrying the Gunner’s Daughter”, his first album in 17 years – interview with Neil McCormick here. Quite curious about Nightlands “Oak Island” on Secretly Canadian… …and the new 7″ by Kwes., “Rollerblades”. Worth giving a listen to “Pop Yeh Yeh”, a compilation of 60s Psychedelic Rock from Singapore […]

When Sixto Rodriguez recorded his debut album Cold Fact in 1969, he dreamed of pop stardom. But, far from the epicentre of the late ’60s folkie scene, the Detroit-based son of Mexican immigrants found that his defining statement was criminally overlooked. Over time though, Cold Fact was rediscovered in the strangest places, despite its fans […]

So, it was a pretty intense weekend… but well worth it.
