    GREEN APPLE SEA, THE

    Directions

    "The Green Apple Sea verstehen es wie kaum eine andere Band, Melancholie und Bitterkeit mit perlenden, Country-infizierten Popsongs zu verbinden. Aber es ist nicht allein der innere Widerspruch, der herrlich irritierende Kontrast zwischen Text und Musik, der diese Band so besonders macht. Natu?rlich sind es auch die Songs. Diese geschnitzten, gedrechselten Songwriting-Prototypen. Falls jemals jemand fragen sollte, was eigentlich genau Songwriting bedeutet, spiele man dieser Person einen beliebigen Titel von TGAS vor. Damit sollte die Frage beantwortet sein. Jedes der Stu?cke auf „Directions“ hat eine solch entwaffnende Strahlkraft, dass man beim Hören allmählich begreift, warum Komposition und Produktion acht Jahre gedauert haben. Und es scheint, als wollten TGAS hiermit dem Begriff „Album“ seine urspru?ngliche Bedeutung zuru?ckgeben. War doch ein Album fru?her nichts anderes als eine Sammlung zuvor erschienener Singles. Genau so klingt „Directions“, nämlich, wie eine Zusammenstellung von Stu?cken, die jedes fu?r sich allein stehen wollen. Die keine Nachbarschaft und eigentlich auch keinen Zusammenhang brauchen."

    SANDWIDI, PIERRE

    Le Troubadour de la Savane - 1978/1982

    [engl] For many decades until quite recently, little was known about music from Burkina Faso (which was formerly known as the Upper Volta). It is still one of the lesser known forms of popular music from West Africa. A few years before the country changed its name to Burkina Faso, thanks to Thomas Sankara’s dream of a new society, Voltaic music emerged as some kind of true cultural revolution in the wake of the country’s independence in 1960. Remote, poor and isolated, Upper Volta musicians coveted the orchestras and artists from abroad while creating a music of their own, based on rich cultural traditions. Popular music that sprung up from Burkina Faso owed much to the music from neighboring countries like Mali, Ghana, Ivory Coast or Benin, and to the longing for “cultural authenticity” conveyed through Guinean music. In capital city Ouagadougou, as well as in Bobo-Dioulasso (Burkina’s cultural capital until the 1980s), the first two decades of independence saw the upcoming of such orchestras and artists as Amadou Balaké, Georges Ouedraogo, Volta Jazz, l’Harmonie Voltaïque, Les Imbattables Léopards, Abdoulaye Cissé, Tidiane Coulibaly or Pierre Sandwidi. Nicknamed “the troubadour from the bush”, Pierre Sandwidi stands as one of the finest Voltaic artists from the 1970s. He belonged to an unsung elite of Francophone artists such as Francis Bebey, G.G. Vickey, Amédée Pierre, André-Marie Tala, Pierre Tchana or Mamo Lagbema. His entire released output consists of less than ten 7 inches, two LPs and a bunch of cassettes. A man from the provinces, he always favored social engagement and carefully crafted lyrics over instant fame. His words and music challenged General Lamizana’s dreary presidency, which ruled the country from 1966 to 1980. Born in 1947 in Boulsa, a small village in central Upper Volta, Pierre Sandwidi studied at the Zinda Kaboré high school in Ouaga in the early 60s. He learned to play the guitar, like many other young men of his generation, influenced, among others, by pioneer Beninese folk singer G.G. Vickey. After graduating, he worked for some time as a nurse, before applying for a job at the national radio – while developing his guitar abilities. Along with his friends Jean-Bernard Samboué, Abdoulaye Cissé, Oger Kaboré, Joseph Salambéré or Richard Seydou Traoré, he was part of the “vedettes en herbe” movement. Their songs were played on the national radio before even getting the chance to be released on a single, recorded live in the studio – a straightforward technique favored by most Voltaic musicians over the decade. In 1970, Pierre Sandwidi traveled across the country, working for the state and learning much from the Upper Volta’s many cultures and history. Involved in trade unions, he followed his own musical path. He observed changes at stake in his native country. In 1971, he won the first prize in the ‘modern singers’ category of a national competition. He also joined as a guitar player the National Ballet of Upper Volta, modeled after Guinea’s “African Ballets”. With them, he traveled to Niger, Ivory Coast and Benin, before visiting Canada in 1973. Back home, he met Bobo-Dioulasso cultural entrepreneur and Volta Jazz boss Idrissa Koné, who offered him to record a few songs for his own imprint, Disques Paysans Noirs. Sandwidi then delivered Lucie, a romantic song in the classic mandingo vein (‘diarabi’ or ‘love song’), while combining Afro-Cuban influences (by way of Congo) with French songs. He only had his bicycle and a guitar to conquer his young love, while others drove cars or rode motorbikes. Penniless but full of love, he walked in the steps of both Abdoulaye Cissé’s L’homme à la guitare and Amadou Balaké’s Bar Konon Mousso. As a trade unionist and a member of the African Independence Party, he opposed General Lamizana’s politics, denouncing the lack of morality and the corrupted new administration in Ouagadougou, while praising the virtues of the working class and the wisdom of farmers. In 1975, Pierre Sandwidi recorded two more singles at the Maison du Peuple for CVD (Compagnie Voltaïque du Disque). Using an Akai recorder as a soundboard, he was backed by Super Volta’s mighty guitar player Désiré Traoré. In spite of such a raw recording environment, his mature voice revealed new harmonic possibilities. In 1976, he recorded 3 more 45s with L’Harmonie Voltaïque as a backing band. Tond yabramba (“Our ancestors”) was the peak of this fruitful collaboration. A sinuous organ allowed Sandwidi to reach new heights, with a stunning melody that became instantly familiar. Recounting his country’s chaotic history, it stood as one of the continent’s best political songs. A true lesson of history, this song has been played enough on the radio to gain cult status. On his next single, Sandwidi sang about rural migration to the city, especially Ouagadougou. A true anthem, Ouaga affaires was another instant classic favored by the Voltaic audience. In the same vein, Je demande ma démission is one of his most beloved songs. A fine observer, Sandwidi tackled the fast evolution and modernization of the Voltaic society. In 1977, he delivered the amazing Yamb ney capitale (“You and your capital”), one of his best songs, with masterful guitar by Super Volta’s Désiré Traoré. Once again, he fought against ailing morality and rising individualism in the country’s capital. Sandwidi praised the virtues of country dwellers, enhanced by Ghanaian lo-fi keyboards wiz Father Ben. The b-side Mam ti fou is another instant classic, dealing with the loss of identity and an ever-increasing race for profit. This single sold over 3,000 copies, a true achievement in one of the world’s most destitute countries. In 1979, while in Abidjan, Pierre Sandwidi recorded his first full length LP with the help of Voltaic Prince Edouard Ouedraogo. It confronted once again his country’s true state of affairs. He launched his own ‘callao’ dance, as a homage to this Sahelian bird that bounces instead of walking. A standout track, Boy cuisinier dealt with the adventures of a cook confronted to European stark realities, with synths on the brink of collapsing, in a Bebey or Onyeabor mode. Confronted with many temptations, Sandwidi sang about his will to stay true to his values, being first and foremost an African; a genuine plea in those harsh years. A true callao song, Marietou sounds like genuine French Sahelian pop. It was released on Kouri Productions, his own label. The b-side Missie Issa denounced nepotism and corruption. With the help of his Super Volta friends, among which guitar player Zon Boukary, rhythm guitar player Tiemoko ‘Pacheco’ Traoré and Father Ben on keyboards, Sandwidi produced his second LP in Ouagadougou. Troubadour de la savane is a vibrant testimony of the Upper Volta, just before Thomas Sankara’s revolution changed the country’s name to Burkina Faso. On Fils du Sahel, Sandwidi delivered a true political slogan : “Friendship and solidarity in peace and justice.” On a more romantic note, Je suis un salaud is a deep, heartfelt Sahelian ballad – one of the key tracks from this album and one of his most cherished songs to this day. During the Sankara years (1983-1987), Sandwidi took part in the cultural animation of his neighborhood as a militant of the mighty CDR (Comité de Défense de la Révolution). After Sankara’s fall in 1987, Sandwidi distanced himself from politics, focusing on writing new songs and plays. In 1995, he delivered his last piece of music: Cousin Halidou, released through Moussa Kaboré’s Bazaar Music. Being of fragile health, Pierre Sandwidi passed away in 1998, leaving a beloved and dedicated family behind. His funeral had a national echo, while new generations are slowly rediscovering a great body of work. Sandwidi used to tell his family that one day, some interest would come from abroad regarding his artistic legacy. Twenty years after he died, this compilation stands as a vibrant tribute to one of West Africa’s most outstanding and adamant artist.

    The Size of the Night

    [engl] What is the size of the night? How can we measure the night? The night is a very personal moment. It can be majestic; spent indulged in love and joy or terribly frightening; filled with nightmares and fear. The size of this moment is hidden in the details that shake our bodies and keep our hearts beating. In this album we took off the darkest and most mysterious part of our persons and transformed it into songs. We don't have instructions to not make mistakes or not hurt people around us or to love in the most proper manner. We just live. We do good and bad. Sometimes we learn but often we don’t, and simply go ahead doing mistakes. We're complex. We can act stupid and feel lost inside. We can miss each other yet not talk to each other when we're together. This album express this new consciousness we found ourselves exploring throughout these past months. There are some very serious songs and others seem surreal, but each one of these creations form The Size Of The Night in it's greatness and in its darkness. Through this album we’re trying to accept that we can be very sensitive people and at the same time we can be asshole. And that it’s alright.

    DEVIL IN MISS JONES

    Cliffhanger

    Die Devils werfen mit voller Wucht das blutbefleckte Handtuch. Wenn man geht, sollte man es SO tun. Mit der Weisheit von 27 (!) Jahren Bandgeschichte, der Energie eines nicht durch Tour Leben und R’N‘R Exzesse ausgemergelten Geistes und dem Hall einer, mit Postern der richtigen (Anti)Helden ausgekleideten Garage. In alter DEVILS Tradition, wieder eine LP im 10“ Format, diesmal mit 6 Krachern, zwischen 2 minütigem „teenage hate“ (shut up!) und 12 minütigem Instrumentalepos (the eternal beauty of life and death). Eingängig und wild, geradeaus und verdreht, vertraut und vorbei. Für die Hölle, für Diversität des Seins und gegen den feuchten Rocktraum. „and when we sit down, I’ll do all the talking, I will tell him for hours, about my miserable life, and if he’s the creature, I expect him to be, I guess we’ll be friends, forever and ever“ (aus Heaven & Hell)

    COURETTES, THE

    We are the Courettes

    „Here are the Courettes“ - das erste Lebenszeichen Von The Courettes schlug 2014 ein wie eine Bombe. Die erste Auflage war innerhalb eines Monats ausverkauft und musste bisher dreimal nachgepresst werden. Ihre Musik führte das brasilianisch-dänische Duo durch ganz Europa. Einladungen auf allen wichtigen Sixtiespunk Festivals folgten. Die zahlreichen Shows beweisen das naheliegende - die beiden sind für die Bühne geschaffen. Erinnert sei hier stellvertretend an ihre legendäre, höchst laute und illegale Balkonshow auf dem Reeperbahnfestival (mit nachfolgender Straßensperrung durch die Polizei) oder ihr Auftritt keine 24 Stunden nach der Geburt ihres Sohnes Lennon. Man kann es einfach nicht bestreiten The Courettes sind eine geborene Liveband. Und umso schöner, dass sie sich für ihr zweites Album "We are the Courettes“ Zeit genommen haben. Zusammen mit Produzent Kim Kix (einigen sicherlich bekannt durch seine Band Powersolo) haben sie eine dermaßen Knallerscheibe in die Runde geworfen, dass einem nichts anderes übrig bleibt, als seine Chelsea Boots aus dem Schrank zu kramen und stilecht das Tanzbein zu schwingen. The Courettes haben ihr musikalische Spektrum mit etwas sechziger Jahre Girl Pop und Soul verfeinert, ohne dabei den ihnen typischen dreckigen Fuzzsound zu verleugnen. Und so watet "We are the Courettes“ dermaßen tief im Sixties Sound, dass es sich selbst die brasilianische Horrorfilm-Legende Coffin Joe nicht nehmen ließ, ein paar Zaubersprüche in dieses Album einfließen zu lassen. PS: Und weil dem nicht genug ist, wird es am 17.3. vorab mit „Voodoo Doll“, der ersten Single vom Album, eine echte Sensation, vielmehr Revolution geben. Mehr dazu später, haltet also die Augen offen.

    BRAVES

    Carry On the Con

    [engl] From the opening track Hanging Church (feat Spencer P. Jones with a trademark solo) The Braves take you on a sonic ride that will convince you that they are on the up. Formed late 2012 on the outskirts of Melbourne, Australia, The Braves came cutting through the surrounding noise to create a sound and a notoriety that is uniquely their own. Starting with Djesse Bolte on bass and Kelly Watson on guitar, the two quickly found the drummer to suit in Ethan Leversha, the last outcast in town. With a mission statement fully in tact and the sound to follow The Braves started playing every opportunity they got from warehouse parties to backwash bars, artist collectives to the deserts and anarchist centres while building the ever-evolving mould of their music.

This record takes the music away from that and creates something even more compelling. His vocal changes too, it’s not just that gargling gravel and petrol growl. He sings and even croons... The music has moved forward too, oh the blues are still there, and, trust me, they are just as harsh and demented as before. But there’s more in Skeleton Coast!

    MIDNIGHT SCAVENGERS

    Anga Vale

    [engl] Revolving around singer/songwriters Johanna Brockman and her partner Dimitri Kucharzewski, Midnight Scavengers are a unique and compelling presence. Situated between sinister violent beauty and volatile fragmented shyness, Johanna Brockman, once a member of James McCann’s Dirty Skirt Band, and The Brian Hooper Band (who opened for Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds on their 2009 Tour) met up with now partner in songs Dimitri Kucharzewski (Nikki Sudden’s Last Bandits, The Hollowmen) in Berlin in 2011 to create the core of what would become Midnight Scavengers. After relocating to Melbourne in 2012, they grew to a five piece with the addition of Jeff Hooker (Brian Hooper’ s band, Kim Salmon, The Darling Downs) on bass, Tim O’Shannassy (MJ Halloran, Paradise Motel, Penny Ikinger) on drums, and Andrew Watson (The Man Who Wasn’t There, Charlie Marshall) on violin and guitar. Midnight Scavengers have become an extremely well respected and recognized band, playing alongside legendary figures such as Spencer P. Jones, Kim Salmon, Hugo Race and Ron S. Peno among others.

    ESCOBAR

    The Biggest Sound

    [engl] Just one year after the release of their album "Bird of Prey", a rich year of touring, it is the release in Europe and the USA of their 3rd album "The Biggest Sound". We are proud to present ESCOBAR. It is a duet formed by Rémi (of Weird'Omen / Anomalys) and Charly (of the mythical band of the 90s The Bushmen / Daria). ESCOBAR rings the era of the return of Lo-Fi, the Grunge !!! "Wild and frenetic on stage, swing a punk electrified grunge garage and songs that remain in the head". In any case, experts in the field, Heatwave, Mowno or even Still In Rock agree that the band has experience of its influences and rewards to the minimalist, minimalist, a Rock'n'Roll Without concession and without plagiarism!

    TOXICS

    s/t

    [engl] ”What we do is a secret, what we do is a hoax,” sings The Toxics on their debut album. There were no secrets or hoaxes in the making of the album but there were a lot of changes. The Toxics is the love child of the singer Jens Hortling and the guitarist Ilkka Luttinen. It had always been a trio playing primitive garage rock. But in the years 2016 and 2017 the band had to reinvent itself. First they drafted a new guitarist Juha Laine and then they started to make a record. The sound of that record would be different from the old Toxics and not only because they brought a bass to the line up. The first album has escaped from the garage towards more nuanced spaces. There’s pub rock, power pop and influences from 1960’s garage rock. Hortling’s voice and Luttinen’s guitar are recognizable but other than that the band sounds new. In the year 2017 The Toxics have five members. Hortling sings, Luttinen and Laine play guitar, Ari-Pekka Heinola is on bass and Riku Korhonen on drums. The song on which they sing about secrets and hoaxes is called: Secret. The Toxics may have stumbled but they never fell. They believe in the power of rock. Mastered by Tim Warren.

    SLEEPER BILL & Mr TOF

    s/t

    [engl] Acoustic duo, Sleeper Bill (singer/ guitarist of Sleepwalkerz) and Mr Tof (upright bass for Hudson Maker) blend folk, blues, rockabilly and country to create a magnetic live show of original music. The two friends came together in 2015 with a mutual love of Americana, influenced by heavyweights Johnny Cash, Hank III and Bob Wayne, which shines through their vintage sound. They recruited the beautiful Mylène in 2016 on the musical saw and washboard, adding to their twang and continuing to present their own catchy rhythms and melodies with tales of heartache and loneliness.
