people finally get it

there is a big feature about „the“ wolfgang möstl in the new issue of the DATUM magazine. so after the new MILE ME DEAF album got quite a bit of attention (even in GB and, to some extent, the US) the media finally gets it why austria is the place to look if you‘re looking for exciting new guitar-based music in europe. haha!

i always tell austrian/viennese people how awesome all those bands from austria are and only very few of them actually know what i am talking about. mostly the people who are kinds of music nerds anyways.

also: PLAIDED did an US tour and i suppose this opens up a whole new lot of possibilities for vienna’s bands. maybe the batteries can fulfill their dream of touring northern america1 sometime in the upcoming years. also the fact that K records now distributes their album in the states is pretty remarkable!

i‘m off to get that DATUM issue. hooray for print media!

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.

(not so) breaking news

first announcement: graz grungepunks HIDDEN BY THE GRAPES are releasing a new album.
listen to their great new single ‚crash test dummies don‘t have plans for the future ‘ here:

++++SHOEGAZER SOLIDARITY NEEDED++++

this EP they‘re recording atm will include some great tracks like this one:

PRELISTEN the new mile me deaf album NOW

GREAT ALBUM INCOMING

that „debut“ mile me deaf album is FUCKING GREAT. now i‘m a biased longtime fanboy anyways, so why would you listen to my cheering in this mediocre webzine? listen to all the awesomeness for yourself!

it’s like walking through an adventure park, with both the casio cotton candy moments depicted on the cover as well the anxious ‚n‘ awkward feelings when you realize you‘ll never understand those people around you. wolf and the gang give you schlager (meant in a good way!) then they give you shoegaze (fantastic new genre approaches – schlagergaze.).

‚you‘re a walking maze‘ and ‚camera‘ are the best ‚noise floor shoegaze‘ tracks since no age’s ‚everything in between‘ album. ‚faux trails‘ is splendid lofi-casio stuff (as is the fantastic ‚tapes‘ from their FREE best-of webrelease. get this as well.) ‚wild at heart‘ and ‚troubles caught‘ are soild guitarfolkpop. and so on…

i‘m getting ‚eat skull‘ on vinyl ASAP. what about you?
they‘ll play shows in vienna on June 1st (release party) and 5th at the gartenbaukino/arena. what joy!
