Radar Festival 13 – StageSurfing Pick

This is a festival to watch out for – seen from abroad it surely is one of the most interesting on the Italian music landscape, and not just because our favourite Frenchies will be performing there. With 50+ bands spread over a period of almost 3 weeks, this festival is bringing to Padova (!!!) a […]

New this week 4-10 March 2013

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 […]

New this week 25Feb-3Mar 2013

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 […]

And suddenly, I am addicted to Spotify

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 […]

New this week 11-17 Feb 2013

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 […]

New this week 21-01-13

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 […]

Good Morning Autumn Mix

Apparently it’s impossible to embed MixCloud widgets. Annoying. I like MixCloud but might switch back to SoundCloud if they don’t sort it out. Which one do you like better? Good Morning Autumn by Stagesurfing on Mixcloud  

Band of Horses’ Mirage Rock preview

The same day I’m off to Greece for my somehow deserved week of holiday, the umpteenth indie rock album is coming up: Band of Horses’ Mirage Rock. You can have a decent quality listen to all the new tracks on the band’s website, so go bananas and write posts about how stunning, engaging,  dirty, amateur, […]
