Musik   Lofi Lounge presents: Nausica (Indie/Berlin) + Clashes (Indie/Berlin)

DJ Team Berg & Tal (Indie, Electro, Pop)
Nausica

Named after the Hayao Miyazaki film Nausica of the Valley of the Wind, the multinational four piece band Nausica inhabits a music world as cinematic as its namesake. Over the past few years they have steadily crafted an arresting and meditative sound, sitting at the cutting-edge of pop music.

Frontwoman Edita Karkoschka’s operatic lead vocals carrying an emotive quality reminiscent of PJ Harvey while the colorful guitar-lines of Tim Coehoorn, driven by Haim-like shifts, transform their songs into explosive powerhouses. Haunted by melancholia, - the lush and playful bass of Pim Walter combined with the electronic and acoustic beats of Jannis Knüpfer, - served straight up, frame an ever-present sea of hypnotizing, positive vibrations.

I feel it in my chest, fresh air - a vagabonds’ precious heir are not only words of their song Heidi, but according to their frontwoman, also describe the direction they are heading. Their music is sweet, with an edgy undertow. An pulsing energy that invokes a constant urge to dance.

It should come as no surprise that the members of Nausica are as different as their influences. With members hailing from The Netherlands and Germany, the band has managed to not only survive but thrive with multiple cultural influences.

Clashes

Im Niemandsland zwischen Shoegaze und Dreampop, zwischen Two Step und Noise haben Clashes aus Berlin ihr Zelt aufgeschlagen. Ihr rastloser Beat treibt die flirrenden und verhallten Gitarren in die Atmosphäre des Raumes, während ein muffiger Sixties-Bass den Sound zusammenhält und erdet. Über allem schwebt eine Stimme, die in eigenartigen Momenten schon mal an einen Muezzin oder auch einen Marriacchi erinnern kann - klingt speziell? Aber ja. Prädikat: Geheimnisvoll psychedelisch und gleichzeitig Pop. https://www.facebook.com/clashesofficial/

Musik   thirsty & miserable: C3I (punk//hh) + Litbarski (punk/bln)

1986 gründeten der inzwischen verstorbene Schlagzeuger Marc Wills, Uncool Sam und Rudi Raschberger das Trio C³I aus der Asche der zuvor aufgelösten Punk Combo Torpedo Moskau. Die Band tourte munter durch die Lande, um 1988 das Album Start auf dem Buback Tonträger Label zu veröffentlichen. Im selben Jahr löste sich C³i wieder auf.

2012 reformierten Arne und Rudi C³i gemeinsam mit Phill Hill als neuem Schlagzeuger. Im September desselben Jahres fand der Reunion Gig im Störtebeker HH statt. Stilistisch bewegt sich die Musik zwischen dem alten 80erJahre C³I-Punk Rock Sound und der musikalischen Entwicklung durch verschiedene Bands, in denen Arne, Rudi und Phill zwischenzeitlich spielten, wie z.B. Noise Annoys, Square the Circle, 3000 Yen, Magnolia, Antikörper, Rasta Knast, Asta Kask, etc.
Am 27.01.2017 erschien das zweite C³i LP Album Kurz danach auf dem K-Klangträger Label.

Die TAZ beschreibt Litbarski als: "aufgepeitschten Punk mit treibenden Gitarren, und dazu einen wütenden Mann mit hoher, brüchiger Stimme singen, manchmal auch brüllen....Die meist melodische, zum Teil mit Noise­rock-Kanten versehene Musik und die runtergebretterten Gitarren passen dabei gut zum Gesamtsound, der Gefühle wie Verzweiflung, Angst und Wut in Töne und Worte fasst." https://www.facebook.com/ccubedi/

Musik   The Hollow Man (Apocalyptic Soundscapes) + Todesstrahlen (Psychwave/Sickrock)

Aftershow: Oskar Valentine (8mm Bar)
The Hollow Man

The Hollow Man’s music is a dark and moody virtual soundtrack to a post-nuclear landscape. His latest album ‘Walking Ghost Phase‘ takes the listener to uncomfortable, cold places with only a glimmer of hope hidden behind abandoned buildings.

The live shows feature visuals created by swiss artist The Blind Eye and the visual fragments give the audience some clues to what the world inside The Hollow Man’s head looks like.

The new album ‘Walking Ghost Phase’ is available to buy and/or stream on Bandcamp. (http://the-hollow-man.bandcamp.com/album/walking-ghost-phase)

A video trailer for the new album can be found on YouTube (https://youtu.be/Kuq23Wl7OsU)

Over the years, The Hollow Man played live shows with Cluster (D), Felix Kubin (D), Sole & The Skyrider Band (US), Savage Republic (US), Tearist (UK), Das Ding (NL), Damo Suzuki (JAP), Sonic Boom (UK), Venetian Snares (US) and The Young Gods (CH) to name a few. He also played a lot of headphone-concerts with his own little setup for 20 guests.

Todesstrahlen

Todesstrahlen is a brand new band based in Berlin which mixes industrial, wave and psychedelic sounds. The organic and natural mixture comes from the former experiences of the three members who have been active in several bands of different musical scenes. Born at the beginning of the 2016, they recorded a first DIY album after some improvisation sessions where self-made instruments (made with construction site materials) and hypnotic shoegaze guitar and bass sound were setted up.

Musik   Fourtrack On Stage: The Sound of Money (Retropop, München) + Birds and Coughs (Indie, Berlin)

+ DJ!
The Sound of Money (Smarter Retrop aus München)
TH€ $OUND OF MON€¥, a band from the truly vital across-all-genres underground scene of Munich. Facing that 2017 is also the 50th anniversary of "Summer Of Love" the band took 12 of their favourite late 60’s albums, created anagrams with those album names and made those their song titles. Then they took those 12 imaginary songs and wrote new lyrics and new music with it.

Drei schöne, ganz unterschiedliche Mixtapes, mit je einem Song aus ihren Lieblingsalben gibt es auf Spotify: http://smarturl.it/TSOM68


Birds and Coughs (Berlin, Emotion Master)
Unfiltered hydro lobster pop: A curious mixture of rock n roll, oblique harmonies, lighthearted grooves, coral reefs and crackling transparence. Through their short time together the group has been labeled many things, 'The aurora borealis of Neukölln', and 'a bunch of depraved hedonists' to name but two.

Musik   thirsty & miserable: DON VITO (hyperkinetic Noise-Tohubohu, Leipzig) + LES SPRITZ (Weird Noise/Stress-Wave, Italy)

don vitodoors 19:00 - show 20:00
les spritz The band’s description of their music “hyper kinetic instrumental noise tohubohu” couldn’t be any more accurate. The moment Don Vito let a bit of chaos out of the sack all appendages within hearing distance begin to fidget hysterically. It is like being hit with the spray from a machine gun. Welcome the apocalypse of rock smiling at you from three lunatics who appear to thrash at their instruments more than to play them. But somehow they never loose continuity in this chaos of interwoven high speed-grooves.

I have tried in vain to count the number of different rhythms they hit you with in their minute-long songs. An indistinguishable mass of tact changes that keep in time despite wild anarchy. Just when you find yourself head-banging to some stomping beat and your ear plugs fall out of your ears (wait a minute… what ear plugs?) the drummer switches into some other thundering groove or blast beat all wrapped up in lightning and hail! It sends you flying and when you wake up, you are laying in a corner somewhere on the other side of the room.

Amongst the bedlam, there comes an occasional nanosecond break in the music, which they fill with screams, grunts, and shrieks. Before you know it 45 seconds have gone by and you find yourself panting for the next song.

These are three people who will never have to worry about being overweight. They give off so much energy and sweat it would be dangerous to have them play anywhere near the polar ice caps. This band IS a weapon!

It is clearly evident that they cannot possibly play 3-hour concerts at such a high level of energy. But it is always sad when the concert ends. It leaves you wanting more, more, and more! Not to fear however, the band is touring extensively and you will certainly be able to catch them in your area soon. Let the tohubohu perforate your brain!

Don Vito does not need to follow the rules; the rules have learned to follow Don Vito.
Remarkably, they are free from genre and categorization. They have delightfully blended post-puberty carelessness with just a touch of self-irony.

From now on, you will no longer have to think of that brainless wanker from Jackass when you hear the name Don Vito, but rather of that kick-ass band from the bowels of Germany.

Musik   READY STEADY GO: The Sonnenbergs (TrashBeatPop 'n' Roll) & Ghost Pony (Psychghostponypop) beide Berlin

Our sound can be described as a not-so-patented blend (although “bland” would be more appropriate) of tipping-our-hats-to-the-giants (The Sonics! The Stooges! The Kinks! Ramones! Def Leppard!!!) Rock N’ Roll which is sure to put the nuts into your fruitcakes this Holiday Season, or at least render your choreomaniacal indie-disco limbs inert. Hailed as “a band”, “a Berlin-based band” or just “douchebags” by several venerable local music magazines, The Sonnenbergs continue to make their audiences slit their wrists, pierce their eardrums or abandon listening to music forever. If you want to regret approx. 60 minutes of your life, or if you have a knack for masochism and/or self-mutilation, then please do come to our shows and witness us destroying your faith in music once and for all.

Ghost Pony are two members of ex-Mokkers. Enjoy
