PLAIDED – playdate

out now on FETTKAKAO:
PLAIDED – playdate

i would call it postriotgrrl-indie. and it’s such an awesome way this band has come. this really is interesting music in a musical way. the way the guitar riffs, vocals and drums fit with each other sounds new and unique. the songs are so well crafted and at the same time so straight from the heart, it blows your mind. personal favourites are ‚it is over toni‘ (which already was on their last 7′‘), ‚buried in a stupid thought‘ with its great uuh uuh uhhs, ‚hold on tight‘ and ’squat it‘ as noisy attacks in between. you could call it balanced. so much awesomeness in vienna 2012.

review: BAD WEED @ arena (open air), 17.06.12

yeah, another vienna-underground all-star-band. this time a take on surfy garage-rock with really sweet melodies (it’s cliché and it screams „CALIFORNIA“ all over, yet its well executed and really fun). their set was over pretty quick, but they‘ve got one song about CSI. i did not quite realize what it was actually about, because i‘ve been in a state of ongoing dizzyness since saturday. i hope they put out some kind of release, so we could delve into further analyzation here (imagine them on a split with BLACK FOX TROPIKAL – ultimate summer pop soundtrack).

still, vienna needs more depropunk bands, thats what i aim for with my personal new band (what, maurizio plays in a band?). the next big thing in alienating crowds hopefully! t new band’s name is not quite, its called CAROUSALS. stay tuned for our pet shop boys cover ep coming out sometime.

review: MILE ME DEAF @ gartenbaukino, vienna, 01.06.12

at the really packed gartenbaukino (no real space for dancing, good vibes though), these three musketeers played all the tracks off ‚eat skull‘ first, which i expected. but THEN they played some older stuff like ‚der ekel‘, one of my personal favourites. they should have gone on with some more older tunes imho (ah, hold on to the past). the sound was really good as well.
regarding the venue, it was a strong contrast to their last vienna gig i attended, which was at the ekh. call me a jerk, i like the ekh better, cheaper beer.

in the end i got the new lp AND an older collection of songs (curiosi-con, damn, mile me deaf has like 10.000 songs, it’s just insane). pity i forgot to take part in the ‚tombola‘ because i could have won a prater-tour guided by the band. me = idiot.

setlist (not sure on the song order in the first part):

leaking stuff
you‘re a walking maze
the scene is deaf
faux trails
hells come naturally
troubles caught
wild at heart
kill or watch them die
der ekel
you‘ll never be the same again
call us rats
swing back to me
