review: sex jams/sikubali/shira @ RiKo soliparty, ekh, 13.01

three bands/artists, all of them start by the letter „S“. RiKo (RechtsInformationsKollektiv) is a new network doing anti-repression work. für die gute sache!

SHIRA: some cool all-female acoustic powerpop with really cool bass parts. pretty good laid-back opening.

SIKUBALI: johnny mauser-style leftist hiphop from nuremberg. i‘m not a specialist for this kind of music but i got good friends who embrace this style quite a lot (especially for the lyrics, which here were mostly political and really decent & elaborate). still i wouldn‘t listen to this at home i guess.

SEX JAMS: another set with mostly new songs. really looking forward to their next album ! love the first song they played in the set, which is also the first piece on the silfestival live recording. they also played „green weather lake“ which is one of my favorite songs of theirs to close the set (i think in english-speaking countries they‘d call this a „show stopper“, anyway).

cool night, my first time conquering nightly vienna with a bike. also had really nice accompaniment by my flatmate david! beer+great music always wins! i really like the way everything connects here (bands/venues/political collectives).


thanks to all! XXX (i suddenly kind of like this letter, X. should rename myself xaver?)
