BERLIN’S ‘m()ck’ RELEASE SELF TITLED DEBUT LP

SELF PROFESSED POST-WHATEVER BAND, DROP A GEM OF AN ALBUM & HIT THE ROAD.

 

IN THE PAST I HAVE WRITTEN ABOUT BERLIN BASED EXPERIMENTAL ELECTRONIC ARTIST pOnk, WHO ALSO HAS A NIFTY PROG-ROCK (FOR WANT OF A BETTER WORD!) BAND, BASED IN BERLIN CALLED ‘mOck’. I MANAGED TO SEE THEM LAST YEAR AT A CLUB IN BERLIN, BUT THE SECURITY NABBED MY CAMERA SO I COULDN’T TAKE ANY VIDEO…BOO-HISS!

THE BAND KICKED ROYAL ARSE DURING THE SHOW & I BECAME HOOKED ON THEIR HYBRED FORM OF EXPERIMENTAL MATHROCKY, PROG-ROCKY GOODNESS. AS A RESULT I WAS HAPPY TO HEAR THAT EARLY LAST MONTH THEY RELEASED THEIR FIRST ALBUM VIA ‘I LOVE TO HATE RECORDS’

FAVE TRACKS –


&

I HAVE BEEN ON A BIT OF A NOSTALGIA TRIP OF LATE, MISSING THE MUSIC OF YORE… REAL TUNES, PLAYED WITH REAL INSTRUMENTS FOR A CHANGE…LISTENING TO OLD FUGAZI, SONIC YOUTH, TORTOISE AND WOODEN STARS (YES, I USED THOSE BANDS IN THE SAME SENTENCE!), AND THIS BAND FIT THE TICKET. EMBODYING THE SPIRT OF WHAT INTERESTED ME A WHILE BACK…NICE ONE LADS!

ACTUALLY, THE 16 TRACK RECORD WAS MIXED BY JOHN McENTIRE THE DRUMMER FOR TORTOISE, WHO RUNS THE SOMA STUDIOS IN CHICAGO. IT IS A MUSICALLY PLAYFUL RELEASE, THAT IS HOME TO SOME DARK LYRICS. DEFINITELY AN ALBUM TO CHECK OUT!

BUY – 
OR

THE LADS JUST FINISHED A EUROPEAN TOUR WITH CHICAGO’S MOST WONDERFUL VICTOR VILLARREAL WHO HAS ALSO PLAYED WITH JOAN OF ARC. THEY ALSO RELEASED A SPILT 7″ WITH HIM VIA JOYFUL NOISE RECORDINGS (BUY IT HERE!)
