|Musik Lofi Lounge presents: Black Pope (Indie/Berlin) + Pollyanna (Indie/ Paris )|
DJ Team Berg & Tal (Indie, Elektro)
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.
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. http://www.youtube.com/user/pollyannamusic

|Musik Pleasure Seekers Club: Cayman Kings (GarageRock-Fr) & Phony (60's Pop-Bln)|
Aftershow DJ's Ben Jones (HH) & Suzy Creamcheese (Bln)
Cayman Kings is one of the most exciting new bands to come out of the French garage scene. From the acid soaked sidewalks of Los Angeles to the rainy streets of the swinging London, they took the best of the 60s sound to make a super fresh blend of pure garage rock'n'roll for the new millenium.
Surrender to the wild attacks of the fuzz guitar and the raunchy organ played by a furious spanish hidalgo, they built up a strong live reputation touring Spain, Germany, Belgium, France, Netherlands... and along cult acts such as Iggy Pop, Arthur Brown and The Lords of Altamont.
The Cayman Kings go beyond the garage scene's limits and catch the audience in their orgy of sounds. The band just released their 2nd album, Marygold Under Scales!

|Musik SONIC BOOM: PLeaSureDomE ( Glam, Glitter, Punk, Alternative - Bln)|
Aftershow DJ Flo Blub
PLeaSureDomE present a unique and stylish homage to everything 'Alternative' from it's beginnings with David Bowie/T.Rex up until the present day. Songs by David Bowie, T-Rex, Roxy Music, Slade, Sweet, the Cure, Joy Division, Buzzcocks, Ramones, Iggy Pop, Billy Idol and many more.
Guitarist Mark Standley (Ex-Glitter Band, Sigue Sigue Sputnik) had great success with this concept in England and reformed the band in 2013 with four international musicians in Berlin to share this spectacular show with the whole of Europe and beyond.
The boys and girls deliver driving Rock'n'Roll combined with lush harmonies. In combination with their remarkable look inspired partly by Bowie/Roxy Music and the glamorous 1920s in Berlin. Androgynous, sexy and always charming, there is definitely something for everyone!
|Musik Live! Orkan (swe)|
One of the Swedish Gothenburg music scene’s most exciting and brightest shining names at the moment is the prog quintet Orkan. Meaning “Hurricane” in Swedish, it’s both a perfect metaphor for
the band’s sound as well as their recent success. Orkan tell tales of an unjust system, of the ruthlessness of modern society and of the resistance and revenge of Mother Nature, making the amps
scream as well as the on-looking audience. The band touches on difficult themes in with the times, and there is room for both anger, sorrow and joy in their songs. The music of Orkan is dance-friendly and easy to sing along to, but it is also earnest and highly serious. The band’s sound is almost reminiscent of that of classic punk rock, characterized by drummer Moa-Linn Rosenlöf’s and bassist Theresia Dufva’s energizing rhythm section, where an extra punch is thrown into the mix in the form of Kim Bertilsson on the saxophone. Josephine Green’s straight-forward and high-powered riffs blend perfectly together with Fredrik Pettersson’s more melodic Stratocaster solos. The concept of Orkan is undoubtedly inspired by the 1970’s Swedish progressive musical movement, but the band should not at all be described as project based on pure nostalgia. While one foot is resting in the progressive rock heritage, the other is steadily planted in our contemporary times with moving and insightful lyrics that
encourage the listener to reflect and show solidarity with fellow humans.
2017 was an especially exciting year for Orkan. After a successful cross-country tour as the opening act of the prog rock veteran band Nynningen Orkan has played for packed venues wherever they go
and no one is left unaffected by their progress. “Orkan is leading the new prog rock movement”, acknowledges the band Nynningen, and no one seems to object to this claim. In September 2017 Orkan released their self-titled first full-length LP on the Gothenburg based label Alleycat Records. Since before the band have released a 7” single on the same label. The band is currently working on new material and receives new bookings.
|Musik Fourtrack On Stage: The Essex Green (Merge Records, US)|
präsentiert von ByteFM
The Essex Green are a neo-psychedelic pop outfit from Brooklyn, NY, via Burlington, VT. The band is primarily composed of songwriters Jeff Baron, Sasha Bell, and Chris Ziter and specializes in a classic sound inspired by 1960s–1970s pop and folk in the tradition of bands like The Left Banke and Fairport Convention. Inspired by the psychedelic sounds of the '60s while adding some lilting folk-rock and the occasional bit of classic country to the mix, the Essex Green were part of the Elephant 6-affiliated scene of the late '90s. The band shared members with the Ladybug Transistor for a few years, and like that group, their take on chamber pop was gentle and richly arranged. After recording an album for Kindercore, they released two albums for Merge Records in the early to mid-2000s, then, after long break from working together, reunited without a hitch and released their latest album ‘Hardly Electronic’ in 2018.
