HAZE’EVOT (SheWolf) is a rock band and independent female collective based in Israel, consists of Yifat Balssiano (Guitar/Vocals), Talia Ishai (Bass), Or Zigelbaum (Guitar), Hen Yair (Drums), Nofar Tom (Synthesizer, guitar).

For the last decade the band has worked as an independent group, producing content together, from recording music to creating its own video clips.

The band deals with subjects such as the struggle between genders, human relationships and existential issues facing our generation. With authenticity and power, the band is known for its wild and energetic live shows. Together on stage the band members bring a different perspective, a punch to the stomach, and a celebration of distortion and energy.

After releasing two mini albums over the years, the band members moved in together to an apartment in Tel Aviv, to work on their first full album. Following a process of investigating new sounds and writing their collective story as a group, the band released its first full album in February 2020. The album brings together styles such as Rock, Punk, and Disco.

Nowadays the band is working on its next album which is expected to be released in the upcoming year.

Deadly Past (Garage/Indie/Berlin)
 
Die Garage-Rockband Deadly Past erinnert mit ihrem authentischen Stil an vergangene Zeiten und setzt sich auf einzigartige Weise mit der Zeit auseinander. Gleichzeitig bieten sie etwas völlig Neues und Abwechslungsreiches, anstatt bekannte und oft gehörte Musik neu aufzulegen. Das Trio aus Berlin kreiert seit 2009 unermüdlich seine eigene Vision von zeitloser Musik.

Bernhard Eder
 
In einer grellbunten und lauten Welt, die zunehmend aus Effekthascherei und simplifizierter Einordung besteht, sind es die ruhigen und zurückgelehnten Zwischentöne, auf die man vornehmlich achten sollte. Der Wiener Singer/Songwriter und Vollblutmusiker Bernhard Eder versteht seine Kunst seit jeher als eine, die überlegt, reflektiert, Haken schlägt und sich weder inhaltlich, noch musikalisch vorschnell kategorisieren lässt. Er zitiert gerne aus dem Songbuch der großen Indie-Helden, mengt diesem Gestus aber stets eigene Farben bei, die ihn wohltuend aus dem Wulst der musikalischen Veröffentlichungen des Mitbewerbs herausstechen lassen. Das neueste Machwerk GOLDEN DAYS ist ein weiteres Musterbeispiel an Geduld und Ausgewogenheit. Nicht weniger als fünf Jahre hat der Künstler daran geschraubt und gefeilt, bis alle Zahnräder ineinandergriffen und die einzelnen Nuancen sich zu einem komprimierten Klangpaket verknüpfen ließen.

[REHASHs] Post-Punk ist ganz offensichtlich von der Düsseldorfer ‘Ratinger Hof’ – Szene inspiriert, singt auf deutsch und spart nicht mit Klischees in der Wortverwendung: Autobahn! Panik! Bauhaus! Eine moderne Referenz für Rehash wäre die ewig unterschätzte britische Band The Rakes, deren frühe Single “Strasbourg” ebenfalls minimalistischen Punk mit deutschen Wortsprengseln versetzte. Ich bin begeistert und hoffe auf baldige Vinyl-Single-Veröffentlichung, was das einzig standesgemäße Format für einen Sound wäre, der so nach 1979 klingt! (blogs.taz.de/popblog/2023/01/18/neue-bands-rehash-panik-in-das-bauhaus/)

 

OSTSEETRAUM is a small minimal wave band, which, together with bass, guitar, synths, drum machines and vocals, performs scrambled and annoying music for you.

Punkfilmfest Berlin Booking
Punkfilmfest Berlin + Crunch Tapes presents Berliner Lvft (DE), Kitchen (US / acoustic set) + shep treasure (US / acoustic set)
Tickets

Berliner Lvft (DE)

In the gutters of Berlin, there's a band that howls like a banshee in the night. Berliner Lvft, they call themselves, and they're a motley crew of misfits who live to drink and get high. Four weirdos, who make the devil's music with aluminum neck guitars and strange tunings that would make your ears bleed. But there's a strange beauty in their ugliness, a kind of poetry in their madness. They rage against the world, spitting out their disgust with society in every note they play. And when they play, they create a kind of magic. A raw, unfiltered energy that shakes you to your core and leaves you gasping for air.

 

Kitchen (US / acoustic set)
Kitchen is the recording project of James Keegan from Rochester, NY. Keegan began releasing lo-fi tape music under the name Kitchen in 2016 and has released 4 albums and a handful of EPs and singles, branching out into more complex arrangements and recording methods in the years since. Kitchen is trying to present a dream to you.

 

shep treasure (US / acoustic set)
'shep treasure' is the moniker of songwriter and visual artist Sabrina Nichols. Combining a sharp melodic sensibility with an ear for noise and dissonance, 'shep treasure' creates a sound world like The Edge Of Night.

GYM TONIC are an international four-piece and talk of the town when it comes to hyped-up synth punk. In some parallel universe, DEVO, Half Japanese and The Residents grew into one and decided to channel their energy into songs about nuclear catastrophes, vitamin injections, car sickness and deadly events. Throw melody lines straight out of the Twillight Zone on top and you have an all-around gem.

Brighty melodies, microsongs, altered nerves: ULTRABONUS crafted their flowerpunk transmissor with legitim sudamerikan spirit and a dosis of indie slackness. Their last album, El Casino de la Muerte, updates argentinian punk&pop school with dystopic poetry, postreality stories and ultraistic details.

Punkfilmfest Berlin + Crunch Tapes presents Tavare (DE) + Ghost Bag (DE)
Tickets

Tavare (DE)

Tavare, originally performing under the moniker Aidan Baker Trio, is a newly formed Berlin-based trio playing stripped-down slowcore, dirge-pop. The band consists of Aidan Baker, originally from Canada but based in Berlin for over a decade, who makes guitar-based music ranging from ambient/experimental to post-rock to drone-jazz, both solo and with various groups, mostly notably the dreamsludge duo Nadja; Tristen Bakker, also from Canada, who makes soft-noise, prog, ambient and punk music as a solo artist and with groups such as Vrouw! and Otolitos; and Angela Muñoz, a musician, dancer and performer from Spain, who plays with several groups including nunofyrbeeswax, Vrouw! and (also with Aidan) Hypnodrone Ensemble.

 

Ghost Bag (DE)
Ghost Bag is the recording alias of Nick Jongen. Born in the Netherlands in 1991 & currently residing in Berlin, Germany. Palindrome is his second release under the moniker Ghost Bag. It was written and recorded in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil during an artist residency at Goethe Institute in January and February of 2019. Following up on Jongen's 2018 debut under the Ghost Bag moniker, Ghost Bag & Tine Fetz – an audiovisual collaboration with illustrator Tine Fetz - Palindrome is undoubtedly a solo effort. On this self-recorded documentation of his travels, Jongen reflects on the past, present, and worries about his future. Summoning rippling clouds of guitar textures punctuated by intricate finger-picking figures set the backdrop to his ethereal vocals, while synths rumble like a volcano in the distance.

CORP
CORP. is a Berlin/Dublin based corporation which radically disrupts consumers' livelihoods through high-risk high-risk post-office-pop. CORP. has achieved an innovative musical stranglehold which has sent other indie musical enterprises into retreat. Bands like MGMT, Surf Curse, Joy Division, and TV Girl have served CORP. well as musical influences, but it is only the fearless CORP. that has uncovered the real reason for melody manufacture: Immense Profits.
