Little League Shows
 invited Baby Satan Records to curate another night at Schokoladen, don't miss out! this is what's happening:

»Hey kids,
Our first event for 2019!!!!
This time we are hosting mad scientist GELBART and half of Baby Satans' Dane Joe

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Gelbart is a true musically-accomplished giant among hordes of laptop charlatans, blending all colours and shades of electronic pop into his test tubes (old analogue
machines, hand-built gadgets, space orchestras, videotaped vegetables) to give birth to supernatural explosions of sound and vision.
Gelbart has just released his first novel Egglike and will play new music from its companion record Music for and against Egglike.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Dane Joe creates ambient creepy-pop, influenced by public transportation, psychedelics, and being on public transportation on psychedelics.
Dane Joe released last year her first album "New Age" 

----------------------------------------------------------------

Eklektischen Twang-Pop und Rotterdam würde man nicht zwangsläufig zusammen denken. Doch wenn man weiß, dass früher (also vor dem Internet) US und UK-Importe immer über den Rotterdamer Hafen kamen (um von dort aufs Festland weiterverteilt zu werden) scheint Folgendes absolut Sinn zu machen: Lewsberg ist ein junges Quartett aus Rotterdam und spielt auf ihrem ersten, selbstbetitelten und selbstverlegten Longplayer einen leicht elektrisierten, urbanen Twang-Pop mit Hang zum Eklektizismus, gedeckten Stimmungen, repetitiven Gitarrenhooks und perliger Sperrigkeit. Stoisch und wohlinformiert hangeln sich Lewsberg äußerst überzeugend entlang der genealogische Achse Velvet Underground, Modern Lovers, Galaxie 500, K Records und Teenbeat in die Gegenwart. Denn dort haben Contemporaries wie Parquet Courts, UV Race und Terry gerade erst vorgemacht, wie sich die Tristesse der eigenen Herkunft schlicht und ohne Allüren aufbrechen läßt.

"ich finde die einfach so großartig in ihrem spartanischen Style" - Klaus Fiehe, WDR (DE) über The Smile

“das Publikum wollte die Gruppe kaum wieder von der Bühne gehen lassen. So lautstark wurde wohl bei kaum einem Konzert eine Zugabe verlangt.” NRZ (DE) über dem Haldern Pop Auftritt
der Band

“The laid back, soft-spoken Non-Fiction Writer and the more-rocking Terrible are warm, barebones, know how to let loose a two-note or ragged solo, and just sound right.” — Bill Pearis,
Brooklyn Vegan (US)

"Fucking amazing. Genuinely brilliant. I don’t understand why they’re not bigger than they are." - Derek Robertson, Drowned In Sound (UK)

"Rotterdam Talking Heads/Television enthusiasts jut out with a riveting chugger of blase threat and moral ambivalence, with Moe Tucker drums and scrabbly guitar solo." - MOJO (UK)

"Holland's hottest tipped band Lewsberg" – Gigwise (UK) https://www.facebook.com/events/531968010585383/

»Za! is a band from Barcelona composed by 2 people and many instruments. Their music combines African beats, noise, live electronics, thick distortions, vocal loops, free jazz, Balinese polyryhtms, math rock, Dadaism, drones and a high percentage of the result left to complete on stage, every night. ZA! have played about 500 shows including acts in international festivals (South by South West, Primavera Sound, Sonar, Eurosonic, Trans Musicales, Fusion Fest, Canadian Music Week, Bushfire, Sydney Festival...) and tours in USA, UK, Japan, Australia, Mozambique, Swaziland, Brazil, Russia, Portugal, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Finland, Slovakia, Poland, France, Switzerland, Denmark, Austria, Italy and Spain. ZA! love sharing stage with other musicians and creating new music altogether. They are founders of the improvisation collective El Caballo Ganador and they have created and participated in various dance & theater pieces. The duet also teaches conducted improvisation workshops for professional musicians, amateurs and kids. Their workshops, often finishing with a collective show, have taken place in many cities around the World: Barcelona, Berlin, Melbourne, Maputo, Tenerife, Açores, etc. ZA! love the Do It Yourself spirit, but they love the Do It Together spirit even more: they self-release their records and they book their own shows through their own label Gandula, in association with many small independent labels and booking agencies around the Globe.«

»Pranke was formed in the summer of 2014 by Daniel Bödvarsson and Max Andrzejewski. Both are engaged musicians on the experimental music scenes of Reykjavik and Berlin. What started out as a cut-up riff jam in the spirit of math-rock expanded towards an eclectic mix of folksy songwriting and free-form improvisation, with layers of synthesizers and vocals as a nod to krautrock.«

»N0V3L is an engine of entertainment and social criticism weaponizing rhythm and melody against the unsound powers that be. Rigid new-wave, angular funk, polyrhythmic disco and intellectual punk together approximate a radical new sound that forms the principal means of ideological circulation. Drawing influence from such mindful predecessors as Devo and Public Enemy, Novel offers an empowering, politically-charged stance in fierce opposition to the modern cultural landscape, reflecting the corrupted nature of humanity back upon itself.
A sense of foreboding and comic paranoia pervades the debut EP: corporate power looms large, technological isolation seems omnipresent, and bureaucracy mines the psyche of detached participants. This constructed reality presents a hard-earned escape through critical thinking and direct action, acting as a call to mindfulness and moral resistance. Translated through the power of electric music.«

Little League Shows & dq agency präsentieren:

Botschaft - "Musik verändert nichts" Album Release Show
+ Support: Scharping
+ Aftershow-Party: Späti Palace DJ-Team

Nach der Debut-Single "Niederlage" (KUS 006) im Dezember 2016 veröffentlichten Botschaft endlich ihre 2. Single "Sozialisiert in der BRD" (KUS 017) beim Augsburger Independent-Label Kleine Untergrund Schallplatten - als Auftakt für ihr am 08.02.2019 bei Tapete Records erscheinendes Debütalbum "Musik verändert nichts". Ihr Sound bewegt sich im Sophisticated Pop mit schimmernden Gitarren, Synthieflächen und unterkühltem Gesang der etwas an Blumfeld/Kante oder sogar Kraftwerk denken lässt, auch Einflüsse britischer Prägung von Bands wie Prefab Sprout, The Wake oder New Order sind herauszuhören gepaart mit gesellschaftskritischen Texten. Teile der Hamburg/Berlin Band waren in der Vergangenheit u.a. bei The Robocop Kraus, Station 17 und Tusq tätig.
Botschaft sagen zu ihrer zweiten Single:
"Musikalisch lässt sich "Sozialisiert in der BRD" am ehesten zwischen frühen Prefab Sprout, John Maus und Blumfeld verorten. Das Video dokumentiert das Aufwachsen des Sängers Malte Thran in der ländlichen Region. Präsentiert werden dabei zentrale Stationen seiner Biografie (z.B. Weihnachten mit der Familie, Schützenfest, Erstkommunion, die Hochzeit der Eltern). Analog zum Text des Liedes werden populäre Identitätsangebote vorgestellt (z.B. Castor-Gegner*innen, Werner, Dirk von Lotzow) und zu dieser Sozialisation ins Verhältnis gesetzt."

"Wenn man sich schon Botschaft nennt, macht es Sinn auch eine zu haben: Die so betitelte, erst in diesem Frühjahr (2016) gegründete Band hat das: Malte Thran, Peter Tiedecken (ex-Station 17 und The Robocop Kraus), Nils Kempen (Station 17 und ex-Saboteur) und Holger Lüken (ex-Tusq) sehen sich in der Sophisticated Pop-Tradition der 80er, Namen wie Scritti Politti und die Smiths werden als Referenzen genannt. Tatsächlich verstehen es Botschaft, ähnlich wie ihre Vorbilder, anschmiegsamen Synth-Pop mit Gesellschaftskritik zu verschmelzen. Das ist zwar nicht sonderlich neu – man denkt unweigerlich an Die Sterne und die ganze poppigere Schiene der sogenannten Hamburger Schule – aber dennoch gut gemacht. Das Stück »Niederlage« behandelt den Einzug der Konkurrenz in moderne Liebesverhältnisse und die daraus resultierende Wahrnehmung des Scheiterns in ebensolchen Verhältnissen als persönlichen Fehler.“ — SPEX https://www.facebook.com/events/1734546143322388/

»As legend has it, when the members of Brooklyn’s PILL first gathered to make music, Benjamin Jaffe showed up playing his saxophone, which spurred guitarist Jon Campolo to volley back with his own impromptu reaction. That almost telepathic connection was no fluke: The band’s debut full-length, 2015’s Convenience, was a taut, cohesive collection of songs, full of jazz-influenced passages roiled by howling post-punk riffs and no wave calisthenics.

Pill’s second studio album, Soft Hell, has direct ties to these early days: “A.I.Y.M?,” which originally appeared on the B-side of the group’s debut single, “Hot Glue,” opens the album—a proper placement for the song’s racing saxophone and bulldozing guitars. But as Soft Hell progresses, Pill reshape their sound with small tucks rather than wholesale alternations. These changes mostly take the form of more focused arrangements and melodies, which create bristling urgency across a wide range of styles: charred post-punk (the Pylon-esque “Double Think,” the tar-boiled title track), gritty garage-punk (the squelching “Softer Side”), and simmering jazz (the frayed panic of “Sin Compromiso”).

Vocalist/bassist Veronica Torres also exhibits more confidence as a singer, especially in the way she contorts her voice to amplify Soft Hell‘s pointed politicized statements. On “Fruit,” she deliberately stutters the word “to,” mimicking an insistent snare drum; on “HAHA,” she slurs the first syllable of the word “haunted,” conveying both fear and defiance. Yet her ability to dole out controlled fury is awe-inspiring on highlight “Power Abuser.” Throughout the song, she asks important direct questions (“What am I allowed to create or destroy?”), declares unwavering personal conditions (“I just want a fair trade without exploitation”), and repeats withering social observations (“Sex sells / Money talks”). Soft Hell has no illusions about easy solutions to ease oppression or frustration. But the album’s willingness to rattle the status quo provides galvanizing comfort.« (Annie Zaleski, bandcamp)
