Musik   Lofi Lounge presents: Mexican Radio (Indie/Berlin) + Lastdays of Elvis (Indie/Berlin)

DJ Reboot FM (Indie, Soul)
Last Days Of Elvis

A meticulously detailed blend of post-punk, dreamy indie guitar rock and
brooding electronica, Last Days of Elvis confronts the listener with soaring
harmonies over understated yet infectiously catchy instrumentation.
Originally formed in Glasgow, Scotland by Andrew Stark and Seán Gallen who
bonded over their love of artists such as Arthur Russell and Nick Cave, the
band became whole when they relocated to Berlin and met Thomas Raysmith and
Turi Agostino.

Mexican Radio

Mexican Radio is a synth punk three-piece (no guitars!) with high-energy
songs inspired by bands like Cabaret Voltaire, DAF and Deux. They wear
brightly-colored uniforms at all times, and their live shows come across
like psychotic radio broadcasts from another planet - a relentless onslaught
of sinister yet danceable grooves. They also host a monthly radio show on
Soundcloud called The Mexican Radio Radio Show.

Musik   Lofi Lounge presents: Black Pope (Indie/Berlin) + Pollyanna (Indie/ Paris )

DJ Team Berg & Tal (Indie, Elektro)
Black Pope

Black Pope is a rock'n'roll outfit with a taste for all things dark and
mysterious. Fuelled on the camp energy of the fifties and sixties with a
sick twist, Black Pope is sure to shake your body and brains until you're
the one asking all the questions. They say kids these days are so bored with
their generation that their hopes and dreams can only amount to their most
basic animal instincts. For many, this is the end of civilisation as we know
it. For Black Pope, this is just a full moon.

Pollyanna (Indiefolk/Paris)

For the time of her third album, the French folkster Pollyanna shifts her
name to "Polly & the Fine Feathers", focusing on the meeting that gave life
to this series of 12 songs. Indeed, the project of this new record was born
from her meeting with two very educated jazzmen from Paris: Abdesslem Gherbi
(drums) and François Fuchs (doublebass).
Abdesslem is an experienced funk and New-Orleans percussionnist, familiar
with American southern jazz clubs. He also teaches Gamelan at the Paris
"City of Music". François Fuchs is an omnivorous double bassist who loves to
play anything from the Cramps to free jazz, French chanson, soul (Kimberose)
or edgy Turkish traditional music.

Pollyanna has played hundreds of shows in Germany for the past 6 years, in
living rooms, clubs or festivals (Fusion, Breminale, Maritim, Acoustic
Winter in Düsseldorf...). She also has released a more indie-rock album,
"The Mainland", on Solaris Empire records, in 2016, critically acclaimed on
both sides of the Rhine. Thanks to an amazing voice and a solid guitar, she
can display her songs in solo or with a band with equal intensity.

"Fine Feathers make fine birds", they say. So Pollyanna wanted, with these
two gentlemen, to dress her songs with southern and country-bluesy colours,
reminiscent of Jolie Holland or classics like Patsy Cline. The tracklist
consists in a couple of rearranged songs from her old albums and a fair
collection of new ones, written on the road, while touring in Tennessee folk

The album also takes steps sideways to traditional musics : an Indian
tanpura, a touch of rootsy americana, a caribbean banjo... The trio's
inspiration sails across oceans, cultures and ages. Together, they have a
warm and nostalgic sound, enlighted here and there by a flitting violin,
delicate horns or a musical saw. All this actually brings details to
Casier's sincere and heartwarming songwriting, with combines a pop sense of
melodies and carefully crafted lyrics. English, which is the language of
tourism, business and social networks, is for her an endless source of
images and clichés she loves to play with, both light and deep. Polly & the
Fine Feathers don't take themselves seriously, but those who want to spend a
long time time in their company won't be disappointed.
