Song of the day: Love in Berlin

Posted on

Hello kids,

Today is Featured Fridays, and today our track comes recommended from another very musical friend, Awesome Alex from Greece.

He introduces us to Still Corners. It’s another very successful girl/guy duo (just like yesterday) this time from London. This time the ingredients are producer/songwriter Greg Hughes and vocalist Tessa Murray. They will release their second album through Sub-Pop called Strange Pleasures on 6th of May and one listen of their single and its clear we are going to love it.

It’s called Berlin Lovers

You got to love the dreamy voice on top of the spacey synth that gives you some 80’s hypnotic feel.

Song of the day: Go to Berlin GO!

HELLO KIDS,

So after my AMAZING weekend in Berlin I am all alternatived up. This place gets INDIE MUSIC.

I spend Saturday night at Wilde Renate – for all you alternative lovers THIS IS A MUST. It reminded me of my students days spend on Long street in retro, dirty vintage, it’s-cool-to-be-trash clubs.
My favourite of course being Tuesdays at Fiction (with none other than Tommy Gun).

The minute I queued I hated myself for wearing heels at such a place (Geneva is conditioning me!). I was possibly the only tall girl doing so. So I made sure to afro my hair as big as it could and mess my make up a bit. The encourgaing thumbs up from fellow afroers around me reassured me that I looked crazy enough.

But this place was CRAZY – an old run down house with three stories. All filled with mystical fairlights, ivy, 50s couch, dark lighting, burlesque statues, an old bed with red broken mattress, madness everywhere. And then of course the most arty people of your life. This looked like the haunted house where all the vampires loved to party. Upstairs there was a gift from the musical god of a DJ that pumped awesome beats. And the crowd was so friendly and inviting as we hoped around and jointly cheered to the tunes. An accepting environment of difference and weirdness. Just refreshing.

Anyways so back to the music. I found just about the perfect tune to bridge the two latest topic. One Clock Opera (my reobsession from last week) and two Berlin.

Well its none other than one of the fabulous songs on Metronomy’s  The English Rivera Unreleased Remixes album – and yes you guess it its Clock Opera remix of The Bay.

So have a listen and abide by the repeating commands of: Go to Berlin GO! (and while you are it why not Tokyo)

I wish I could make a soundtrack to my life and breathe in the notes every day

Hello kids,

That’s right people it’s Featured Friday. Today we have a lovely little song from Enchanting Eva. This song is about as cute as she is.

She gives us Dillon. Minimalistic and effective is how  I would describe her. Have a listen to Thirteen Thirty-five and tell me what you think. It’s from a wonderful named album The Silence Kills. I quite like the album cover.

 

I hear a bit of Selah Sue and Lykke Li in here. Yet she is from Berlin not Sweden.

Enjoy your weekend

Hi kids,

So after yesterday the only logical thing left to do is to give you Apparat today – our dear Sascha Ring from Berlin.

I love Black Water – you may recognize it from Skins the TV show – its off their latest album The Devil’s Walk

Enjoy

Hi Everyone,

While we are on the electro front let me give you a hard hitting Berlin based electro project called Moderat.
Moderat is a collobaration of Sascha Ring (Apparat) and Gernon Bronsert and Seabstian Szary (Modeselektor – which you should remember from previosuly featured Shipwreck with Thom Yorke).
Well there is not doubt that if you mix two highlighly talented Electro groups together you get something as powerful as this.
I saw them live at Primavera Sound in Barcelona two years ago and must say we jamed out.

This is A New Error – the ultimate car cruising track.

Enjoy
