Shiraz Lane Tour kicks off in Berlin today!

Finnish young rock dynamite returns to European venues this Fall.

 

We're excited to announce the return of Finnish young rock dynamite Shiraz Lane, with a brand new video and single 'Harder to Breath' released today by Frontiers Music - and a European tour supporting Brother Firetribe in October and November! Tour kicks off in Berlin today, dates here.


The band has been working with Swedish producer Per Aldeheim (for trainspotters: Max Martin’s bandmate in their glam funk metal (sic) band It’s Alive and later collaborator at legendary Cheiron studios) on infusing a massive blast of fresh air into the upcoming neo hard rock genre while paying homage to predecessors Aerosmith, Guns N' Roses et al.

 

'Harder To Breath' indicates that they may be onto something.

debut EP: 'GodGiven' by Lex Audrey

Austrian band Lex Audrey has just released their first EP on Las Vegas Records!

 

We often need to take a closer look to comprehend the worth of things. Therefore the name of the Band Lex Audrey, with its implied allusion to Audrey Hepburn asks the audience to share a closer look at the world.


This look should also meet their debut EP 'GodGiven', which has been released end of September.


On 'GodGiven', Lex Audrey confronts the audience with contrasts and spectra, they combine euphoria and sadness and master to shift the musical boundaries between Rock, Pop and Electronic.

new signing: Better Person

Polish-born and Berlin-based musician Better Person just signed an worldwide author's agreement with Freibank!

Prior to his first release, Adam occasionally played guitar and keyboard with one of Montreal's gems, Sean Nicolas Savage, as well as touring with the lovely TOPS and Timber Timbre.

His aesthetic has been well described as: "Mopey but also kind of groovy - the kind of song you might shuffle around to with your head hanging low as the dance floor lights flicker on at the end of the night." Having been compared to the sounds of highly revered artists such as Sade, Dean Blunt, Arthur Russell, and James Ferraro, we can promise that Better Person will seduce you if not with his dreamy voice and stage presence, then surely with his romantic yet tragic lyrics all about our (and likely yours) favorite topic: love.

His latest release - Zakochany Człowiek a single sang entirely in his native Polish tongue is an instant hit that cuts strong and deep with its earworm melody, moony synth hook, and dense Romantic aura.

 

Also check arthouse ode to Julio Iglesias, he did with Sean Nicholas Savage to romance the night with Moonlight Lady video.

new release: No. III by No. Artists

No. III continues the centuries long tradition, invented by the label masterminds in 2013.


No. - the disorganisation invented by the label masterminds Uwe Schmidt aka Atom™ and Material Object (André Ruello) in 2013 - are cataloging their 3rd year of Existence with No. III.


No. III continues the centuries long tradition, invented by the label masterminds in 2013, of remixing the very concept of a 'compilation' by slicing, remixing, autotuning and YouTubing the entire year of the label's output into the blender for a completely new cocktail that goes beyond merely re-packaging previously released product.


released September 11th via No.

out soon: 'Brother Equal' by Random Willson & Brokof

Brokof and Greg Northrop's debut album will be out September 1st via Goldrausch Records!

'Brother Equal' is a transatlantic collaboration of poet, singer/songwriter, Random Willson (Greg Northrop) and Berlin based band Brokof.


Produced by Goldrausch owners, Fabian Brokof and Arne Bergner, the record has a very natural, intimate, conversational tone. 'Brother Equal', is clearly a collaboration, but more so an understanding between established Berlin quartet Brokof and their new New York neighbor Random Willson.


Their conversation is warm and honest, one they’d like to have with the world. 'Brother Equal' is a snapshot of a man transitioning from living in NYC to Berlin. Northrop's poetry reflects a wandering poet, writing post cards, learning from trials and yearning for the bright side. Fabian Brokof and Arne Bergner of Brokof, opened a door for Random Willson and have done a fine job bringing Northrop’s poetry and playing to fruition. Their skill set nicely augments his narrative, allowing them to weave in their own instrumental sensibilities and a long - nurtured affinity towards American Singer - Songwriters. Add groove master Puya Shoary (Brokof drummer and Percussionist) and Brokof's Rocksteady Bassman Rocco Weiseto the mix and RW&B is what you get.

 

'Brother Equal' will be out on World Peace Day, September 1st via Goldrausch Records.
