Musik   thirsty & miserable: YOWIE (kryptotonal Math-Rock, Missouri/US) + Amigo Tropical (No-Wave Noise, Berlin)

yowiedoors 19:00 - show 20:00
amigo tropical Since 2000, St. Louis’ YOWIE has been perfecting a unique form of progressive rock that incorporates complex polyrhythms and guitar dissonance.

Operating within its own unique idiom, YOWIE rejects rock music’s typical foundation of common time signature and standard melodic structures. For their 3rd album, “Synchromysticism,” the band has used these tools, as well as the drummer’s (a clinical psychologist) understanding of signal detection theory and delusional mood to convey complex phenomenological concepts in a highly visceral form. This album, the first with guitarist Christopher Trull (formerly of Grand Ulena) marks a new level of ambition in terms of conceptual complexity, synthesizing opposing compositional approaches into a distinctive style that simultaneously elicits feelings of euphoria, perplexity, dread... and an inexorable urge to dance.

This is post-apocalyptic dance music for the coming age.

Musik   thirsty & miserable: NYOS (heavy instru-Doom/Noise, Fin) + TVIVLER (Noise-Rock/Post-HC, DK)

nyosdoors 19:00 - show 20:00
tvivlerNYOS are a noisy instrumental duo based in Jyvaskyla, Finland. The band formed 2014 when UK-born Tom Brooke and drummer, Tuomas Kainulainen met after Tom moved to Finland. Bonded by a mutual love of noisy bands, coffee and playing shows, they wrote their first record Vltava, a 26 minute one-track piece, over the winter of 2014 and have been touring constantly since mid 2015, taking their (literal) wall of noise out to more than 120 gigs in over 20 countries!

The bands sound is a loop-driven mixture of all things mathy, heavy and emotive, and has been confusing genre lovers since the beginning... Terms such as 'Math-Doom', 'Post-Noise' and & 'Punk-Jazz' have all been used to describe the noise the duo makes.

NYOS self-published 2014's Vltava, and 2016's follow up album Nature, both of which were recorded at Tonehaven Studio, and released on CD, LP and Cassette. Their third album, Navigation will be released on September 29 th 2017 as a collaborative release with Karlsruhe based Meta Matter Records.

Navigation, which was again recorded and mixed by Tom, was mastered by the world-renowned Mandy Parnell (Bjork, Aphex Twin, Sigur Ros), and whilst both previous records Nature and Vltava were written and recorded as single flowing pieces, Navigation captures the band moving towards a more dramatic, varied and dynamic sound.


TVIVLER (Danish for doubter) is a hardcore-punk outfit from Copenhagen. While this short description might seem to place the band neatly within the trending local-gone-global brand of Danish teen-punk, the members of Tvivler are simply too old to mingle with the likes of Iceage, Communions and Lower, and have had too many kids and full time jobs to meaningfully lyricize teenage angst. Luckily, that is not what Tvivler set out to do.

Upon the death of their former band Obstacles (a hypercomplex, instrumental math rock band), guitarist Thomas Feltheim and drummer Morten Clausen decided that they needed to approach music differently. This approach had to be more aggressive and simpler. Way simpler. Obviously, this return to simplicity and the craft of real songwriting (as opposed to riffing away) is a path as beaten and cliché-ridden as anything, and the mantra of less is more has probably more often resulted in mind-numbing repetitions of what everyone has already agreed is working, than it has actually fulfilled its promise of something more. This was what they wanted to do. Thomas Burø (formerly of Lack) and bassist Morten Ogstrup Nielsen (Town Portal) were wooed by the liberating appeal and relatability of this mission and joined shortly after to form Tvivler.

While the musical casting mold is shaped mainly in the image of conventional hardcore aesthetics, the actual content poured into it, is of a more explorative nature. On Tvivler’s first release, the EP Negativ Psykologi #1 (the first installment of a trilogy), dissonant and almost shoegazy chord progressions are carried by furious d-beat explosions, and lead by high pitched vocals verging more towards desperation than anger. Lyrically the trilogy pours its scorn on the increasingly popular notion that positive thinking is the key to all kinds of conflicts, whether inter/intra-personal or societal, as if they were just mental constructions to be overcome by changes in attitude or perception. The realness of these conflicts and the lack of means to articulate them are explored across the songs through the narratives of embittered, worn out (and mostly female) protagonists.

Manual de Combatedoors 19:00 - show 20:00
Siwomat Chilean experimental noise punk duo MANUAL DE COMBATE have recently released an interesting new split with their friends from DUMO, offering a solid load of full-force drum slams, fuzzy slabs of bass, and crushing it into the wreckage of garage, noise rock, and post punk. Abrasive, affecting and inventive, the record sounds like a minimal, yet explosive novelty. MANUAL DE COMBATE will be hitting Europe for the first time in support of this adventurous release in October and November, with shows taking place in the Netherlands, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Austria, Switzerland and Czech Republic.
