New Release: Real rarity album by Einstürzende Neubauten

The album 'Grundstück' incl. DVD was released on the 7th of September 2018.

 

Only what isn’t, is possible! This is what describes the creative process of the band Einstürzende Neubauten and their frontman Blixa Bargeld for the past four decades of designing new sound space. Einstürzenden Neubauten have established itself as one oft he most radical, most unpredictable and most unconventional avant-garde bands in the popular music scene, whose noise-laden anti-pop continues to influence global listening habits to this day.

 

On the 7th of September 2018, the band released a real rarity – 'Grundstück'. Originally issued in 2005 as a small, limited edition, strictly intended only for registered band supporters, the much sough-after album is now officially available as a CD and also for the first time ever as an LP, each including a DVD of the project and an extensive booklet. The DVD, showing previously unpublished film recordings, was filmed on the 3rd of November 2004, during a special supporter gig at East Berlin’s Palast der Republik; the earlier political apparatus of the former GDR state leadership. The building was torn down soon after.

 

'Grundstück' is the missing link between 'Perpetuum Mobile' released in 2004 and 'Alles wieder offen', which came out three years later. The Album represents that the title asserts: One’s own lot. A self-built, stylistic and primarily ideological microcosm within pop culture, in which Einstürzende Neubauten can pursue its sound research processes completely self-sufficiently and undisturbed. It’s a form of artistic independence that is not subjected to a patronizing record company or other commercial survival strategies.

just out: 'Just When You Thought It Was Over' by Katerina

Spacey melodies meet jagged rhythms on the artist's first Cómeme release.

Matias Aguayo's Cómeme has released some of the scene's more peculiar rhythm-based electronic music. The Helsinki-based Bulgarian producer Katerina experiments with these kind of sounds. Her debut Cómeme release 'Just When You Thought It Was Over' blends a range of influences and styles into a cross-section of unrefined but complex emotions.

 

Katerina's punk sensibility, which can be heard on her Radio Cómeme show, also filters into her productions. Her fragile voice appears throughout the EP, mumbling improvised melodies and off-hand one-liners over trashed electro grooves and bubbly synths.

new signing: Svavar Knútur

Freibank has just signed Icelandic Troubadour, whose brand new album will be out very shortly!

 

Hailing from the harsh Icelandic western fjords and channeling the pain and angst of long dark winters and the insomnia of the 24 hour glaring summer sun, this eclectic musician has in recent years blossomed into a serene and sublime singer and songwriter.


Knutúr's songwriting has not gone unnoticed internationally, as his song 'Astarsaga ur fjollunum' ('Love Story From The Mountains') propelled his band Hraun to participate in the final 5 competition on BBC World Service's Next big thing, playing for millions of viewers and listeners all over the world.


His song Morgunn ('Morning') was released on icelandic Radio has been in the second place in the Icelandic national radio charts for four weeks running.


Now, he is releasing the first part of his double album, called 'Ahoy! Side A', with 'Side B' to be released later. It’ll be released for streaming and downloading on September 14th. The single/ video of 'The Hurting' is out since September 7th.


Svavar Knútur is currently touring through Germany and Austria!

Out Soon: 15 music poems by Mona Mur and Miron Zownir!

'Those Days Are Over' is undoubtedly one of the most unusual and impressive cross-media collaborations between two Berlin artists this summer!

 

Both are like-minded individuals with passion and untamed creativity, who sooner or later seemingly had to find each other and are now releasing a new Audio-CD.


Mona Mur, whose musical career began in the early 1980s with her New Wave punk band Mona Mur & The Tenants (with Gode, Mark Chung, FM Einheit and Alexander Hacke), created an absorbing, mysterious soundscape with the setting of Miron Zownir's English-language poems, absorbing the idiosyncratic expressiveness of the poet with her mystic voice and musical compositions full of powerful melancholy and provocative wildness. (...)


Mona Mur transforms 15 poems by photographer, writer and filmmaker Miron Zownir, which Stanley Kubrik's scriptwriter Terry Southern has long ago nicknamed "Poet of Radical Photography", into deeply disturbing "Poetronica" revealing a cynical “outsider” perspective onto the many superficial surfaces of our lifes ...” (Nico Anfuso, Berlin 2018)


The CD will be exclusivley available for presale at the upcoming live events with Mona Mur.

New Borusiade EP is out!

'Their Specters' was released August 10th through Ostgut Ton's Unterton sub-label.

 

'Their Specters' will mark Miruna Boruzescu's debut on Unterton, and we're told the Romanian producer - whose style recalls new wave, industrial, EBM and techno sounds - had in mind "themes of ecological and human self-destruction" when composing its four tracks.


Boruzescu released her debut album, 'A Body', through Cómeme earlier this year. Besides Matias Aguayo's label, she's notched appearances on labels including Correspondant, Cititrax and Dark Entries over the past couple years.(words: Brian Kolada/ Resident Advisor)
