mile me deaf – you‘re a walking maze

unlock my mind


review: human tetris/magnetic poetry/beach girls and the monster @ rhiz, vienna 13.02.12

BEACH GIRLS AND THE MONSTER: seemed like an all-star-band (i spotted members of UPPERCLASS SHOPLIFTERS & DUST COVERED CARPET) doing surf-indie. clean guitars to clap along. don‘t even know for how long this band has been around. still ok, just a bit unspectacular.

MAGNETIC POETRY: they seem to balance out the amount of melancholic and uplifting/happy songs. still i think the songs with the darker sound are the better ones (could be my preference for the darker styles of music, but those songs were just kind of more elaborate). for fans of XIU XIU (MP=more pop) or TO KILL A PETTY BOURGEOISE (less ambient, more danceable) or whatever. the singer (cute!) said it was their first tour, so i think they‘ll follow their way of doing music further in the future. personally, i‘m very excited about the outcome.

HUMAN TETRIS: flawless post-punk/wave sound, very true to the roots. pity i kind of lost the attention halfway through the set (couple nights with very few time to spleep take their toll so this could be my fault). i think these were great songs, maybe they were a bit repetitive. for another cool band in this category of 80s sounding post-punk check out THE SERPENTINES from stuttgart. the singer of HT wins a prize for the coolest guitar (dark wood jazzmaster).

after this evening i think you could dare to have an eye on the moscow scene. i‘m pretty sure we‘ll see some more great bands emerge from there. kind of glad i opted for this instead of seeing BLACK FAG @ arena.

new APTBS album | new Mile Me Deaf album

A Place to Bury Strangers are releasing some new album this year. Listen to some songs here
Also a cool interview (WTF Lady Gaga uses Death by Audio pedals?!?!11).


Siluh/Fettkakao will be releasing the first „major“ Mile Me Deaf album in May.
„you‘re a walking maze“ already is a favourite. can‘t wait to get it on vinyl.

from the siluh newsletter 02/12:

MILE ME DEAF debut album

We are very happy to announce that Siluh in cooperation with Fettkakao will release the Mile Me Deaf debut album! Together with mastermind Wolfgang Möstl (Killed By 9V Batteries) we are aiming for a May 2012 release. We‘ve already listened to the piece and are stunned. So looking forward to holding the finished thing in our hands!

You can send Mile Me Deaf some love by liking and following them on Facebook!

not sure if you could classify it a ‚debut‘album. here’s why.
and in the discography on, there are still missing lots of EPs, like my favorite ‚captured in gravy‘ (live recorded jam?, three-track, internet-only?, 2008). tss.
