The most important, versatile, touching “instrument” in music you cannot pluck, bow or beat. Basically, you don’t need anything to play it and you can easily play it everywhere – typically in your car or under the shower by the way. But it needs a lot of talent and courage to raise your voice in a way to form a song that makes us laughing from joy, longing for something or shedding a tear.
Winter is still around. Fortunately, the post-rock band VAR can offer the perfect soundtrack for this time of the year. Their new album called Vetur (=Icelandic for winter) was just released in Japan in December and will soon be available also via Spotify and iTunes.
It was on Thursday night during Eistnaflug ’16 at around 2:30 a.m. I can’t remember anymore which band I’ve seen before. I was kinda fucked up from hours and hours of festival life, bustling between the campsite and the two stages, taking photos, jumping around, drinking with Icelanders. And the day before has left its […]
A small, remote town in the middle of nowhere. There’s a museum on local and natural history and a school. There’s even a small hospital and of course, there is fishery. Everyone knows each other, it’s quiet and tranquil all year round. Except a few days when hordes of metalheads invade to celebrate a feast […]
A long time of waiting is finally over. Just a few minutes ago, one of our Iceland favourites, the promising Indie rock band CeaseTone released their full length debut! And we were incredibly lucky to be able to listen to it already a few days before it was sent out into the world now.
Many people still think that Icelandic music sounds like elfs making love between moss covered lava fields. But let me tell you: There is so much more than this. And I´m always looking forward to see Icelandic bands with a really fresh and unique sound playing in Berlin. Fufanu is one of those bands, which had […]
On Air of CW 52-2015: What is going on here? A lasciviously rouged dude, skin-tight leather pants, topless, sings, screams and dances heavily at the audience and another singer, dressed in a coat and wearing a tremendous beard? The saxophonist’s sweater reads “Micky Mouse Fight Club”.
Well, to be exactly, that’s a review about two concerts. Because Agent Fresco was already on stage at Ampere, Munich, the day before on December7th. And as it’s only about one hour drive from Munich to Nuremburg, what could be more obvious than to enjoy this phantastic band on two consecutive days?
On Air of CW 49-2015: It’s not only because they will perform in six different cities accross Germany next week during their European tour. It’s also because they are one of the best, if not THE best, Icelandic Rock band at the moment. That’s why this week’s On Air is the amazing Agent Fresco with […]
Wednesday night. Halfway through the week. Time to power up for the second half – and there’s no better way to do this but a Vintage Caravan concert! Currently, the band is touring Europe as support for Swedish doom metal formation Avatarium.
