OUT: Album 'Insomnia' by Kastrierte Philosophen

Insomnia - Kastrierte Philosphen 1986 Insomnia - a way of life rather than a disease The night a free space where anything can happen. Hour of demons and hour of visions, illusion and deception, loneliness, `always in a strange place' and yet connected to a deep knowledge, not visible in daylight (Comin'out of nowhere) Hour of magic and rebellion and unbearable, soothing silence (Callando los siglos) Soundtrack for sleepless nights of those who are always `too busy to stay'. Always in search of love and meaning.

Mona Mur announces new album 'Snake Island'

“Her weapons are a passionately bloody voice and a gift for multilingual puns she applies to acerbic commentaries.” -NME

Best known for her unique voice and fierce live performance, German-born Mona Mur has been an influencer in our dark corner of the world for decades. Her well-documented artistry stretches far beyond music.

Having kicked-off her distinguishedly rebellious career during the punk explosion of the 80’s, Mona linked with members of Einstürzende Neubauten to release the seminal 12” single “Jeszcze Polska”, which immediately claimed “Single of the Week” status via NME upon release.

Deeply embedded in the DNA of Polish and German arts, throughout the years, Mona has accomplished everything from releasing critically acclaimed albums (employing a select group of notable producers), working with The Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra, composing for film, to being cast in plays. Most-recently, Mona has found herself scoring for the game industry.

Among many, many more, a short-list of Mona’s collaborators include F.M. Einheit and Alexander Hacke of Einstürzende Neubauten, Thomas Stern of Crime and the City Solution, Raymond Watts of PIG, Kristof Hahn of Swans and of course, frequent collaborator and close friend En Esch of KMFDM fame.

Mona's next full-length album, SNAKE ISLAND is due soon via GIVE/TAKE.

Out: Single 'Time' by Kastrierte Philosophen

In 1981, Ronald Reagan, a movie cowboy, became president of the United States of America, the Space Shuttle Columbia lifted off from Cape Canaveral for the first time, and MTV went on the air with "Video Killed The Radio Star" by The Buggles.

40 years later, Katrin Achinger and Matthias Arfmann have combed through the complete works of their band Kastrierte Philosophen. The result is not only the extensive work show "Jahre", which will be released on 27.01.2023 as a double vinyl and CD, but also the complete back catalog will be successively digitally re-released - and there are even two new songs. A crazy journey through time, which tells more about the present than about the past.

So there are great things to come: The Hamburg group Kastrierte Philosophen had released a total of eleven albums during their active time. On these albums you can find Im-weitesten-Sinne-Indie music announcing boundless curiosity and openness, which combines Velvet-Underground-Coolness, Shoegazer, Spoken-Word, Rave, Electro, Minimal-Pop, Chanson, Reggae, New Wave, Dub, Geniale Dilettanten, German and English (Spanish and French) lyrics.

After that, Achinger and Arfmann spent a whole year dealing with their musical past, which in this way became their present again. From this enthusiasm arose automatically the desire to add something to the work.

Even if both walked for years on solo paths, their paths crossed again and again and this time a new piece of music 'Time' was created, which can be heard from 02.09.2022 on.

The accompanying Best Of "Years" will be released on 27.01.2023. The video for "Time" is also a real piece of contemporary history - cut from the film "Tangier Nonstop" from 1996.

OUT: Single 'Into The Silence' by Trentemøller Ft. DíSA

'Into The Silence' is the new single of Trentemøller and also the first cooperation with DíSA (Disa Jakobs), the singer of the all new Trentemøller band on the Memoria tour. Her vocals are perfectly woven into the song, sometimes floating above and sometimes shining through from the engine room.

"During our recent tour," says Trentemøller, "Disa and I spoke about doing a song together. It felt quite obvious as we really developed a common language when we played so many concerts together already. After finishing our first leg of the tour, I immediately went to the studio and wrote the music for this song. It really came to me easily as I felt quite inspired. Disa then wrote this beautiful and bittersweet text that compliments the music so well I think. And her unique voice just melts into the music in a very natural way." Trentemøller will play a handful of shows in Europe before the entourage takes off to North America in September.
