Baby Kreuzberg on Tuesday, November 22nd, 2016 at 8 p.m.
(Repeat on February 14, 2017)

"Marceese Trabus was previously known as" Marceese ". From now on the name is" Baby Kreuzberg ". And the music? More rock'n'roll than ever before.
With “Twang Twang” the well-traveled road dog from Berlin is sending his eighth solo album into the race. Blues, folk, surf, swing, country, plus, as special ingredients, unbelievably ripped off guitar playing and passionate singing that comes from deep inside. Marceese / Baby Kreuzberg shakes once vigorously and serves 13 razor-sharp songs for dancing, hanging out and falling. One hears: Behind these sophisticated compositions there is a born songwriter, a big city cowboy with a guitar, who writes about what he sees. A hymn about life on tour shouldn't be missing, because Baby Kreuzberg is actually always on the road. Of course, homesickness is sometimes the order of the day, but the bottom line is that there is nothing better, because: "Every Dog Has His Day".
In “Ain't No Texas Ranger” Marceese sings about the gentrification of his hometown: a rejection of club mate-sipping hipsters, but above all a declaration of love for Berlin. The artist packs the whole thing in a pure country tune, for which only the appropriate western series is missing. Baby Kreuzberg's “These Three Words” are not “I love you”, but “please fuck off”. To romantic sounds, he gleefully extends his middle finger in the direction of the Nazi scene. And there are always powerful kicks in the buttocks: “She-Devil”, “#Asshole” and “99mph” really go wild: These are nasty grooving rockers, where standing still becomes impossible.
With Boerge Walenta on drums and Alexander Gau on bass, Marceese has an excellent backing band at the start. On each number the three gentlemen swing as if there was no tomorrow. The exception: Marceese denies "Once Upon A Time" alone, a song about past love that refuses to be sad. In addition, the head can be parked on the counter next to the last beer of the evening. "

"Before big birthdays people become more radical. They train for marathons, parachute out of planes, clear their apartments, separate, take stock. Franziska Günther has done all of this - and also recorded her debut album of the same name shortly before her thirtieth birthday. Not as spontaneous Crisis of meaning, but as a natural milestone after years of making music. Up to now, wanting to make a living from it was too daring. Until she went on a winter tour in Iceland. A storm was announced there in the best sunshine. Flights would be impossible for a few days. Instead of getting nervous, Franziska was deeply impressed by the calm confidence of the locals that there was always a way for everything. And so she decided on the last plane before the storm to make music a profession. That would be fine. Back in spring-like Berlin, she promptly began with The recordings. Franziska Günther produced her first work on her own and in the course Mix and master the Teldex Studio from Surrealis Sounds. The puristic songs with powerfully grounded vocals, clever and richly pictorial lyrics and groovy acoustic guitar fascinate with their intimacy. Her songs live on the experiences, questions and observations of a woman in her late twenties, embedded in a life-affirming singer-songwriter folk, restless and yet wonderfully decelerated. "

"Oh promotional texts! People like to put it on really thickly here. So we don't want to tell about the next big thing. On the other hand, it is quite remarkable the concept with which the Hamburg songwriter Summer Crowd Stereo recorded his current album.
There is nothing to be heard but an acoustic guitar and vocals, absolute reduction is the order of the day. And yet the result is: flawless pop. Therein lies the real surprise of this album. To limit yourself mercilessly in order to then burst these limits with relish. You could call it “Reduce to the max”.
Sure, the classic songwriters like Nick Drake or Elliott Smith sound again and again. But then the sound opens up and you think of bands like Snow Patrol or Midlake. The opener Towards Me is already a real rocker. Where the Sky Meets the Ocean, on the other hand, tempts you to spread your arms wide. And This Selfish Mess even breathes pure desert sand.
Summer Crowd Stereo lures the listener to the black ice in the most pleasant way. At the end of the recording he puts his instrument aside audibly. That's probably the moment when you realize that it's just an acoustic guitar after all. You could almost say that Summer Crowd Stereo overcomes physical limits with this guitar. But that would now be really thick. We just want to arouse a little curiosity. "

This leads to an extraordinary genre that is as original as it is traveling and in many places just so bursting with joie de vivre, but the long player also contains quieter ones Moments that give you the opportunity to linger and invite you to stop. “Color” is the defining theme of the album, as the title suggests. The colourfulness stands for a multitude of emotions and also symbolically for freedom. "Color Me" impressively shows the different sides of Riders Connection. That of a wild bunch romping around and playfully celebrating life, but also that of a very sensitive and critically questioning community of friends. Joy and sadness, love and anger, these are all representations of colors that find their connection to one another through the different styles and moods on the album. The three young men are amazing on stage. The accompanying performance, the charm, the subtle humor and the songs created for celebration open all the gates of joy in the audience. In no time people are singing the refrains loudly and dancing happily until their sweaty clothes stick to their bodies. Together with the band they experience a wonderful community moment that makes them smile with satisfaction and quietly hum the song melodies on the way home. "

Trailhead is the project by the Berlin songwriter Tobias Panwitz and a rarity in the German music scene. He combines sensitive, energetic folk rock with visual content, as only a few musicians in this country do in English. Motives of restlessness, longing, loss and reconciliation pass the listener by, while Trailhead celebrates experiences between Spanish ways, Swedish islands, American country roads, Baltic coasts and Latvian rivers.
After traveling to the USA, Greece and Sweden for several years, Panwitz decided to return to his home in Berlin in the 2000s. A lot of songs have been written on many a path and since a "trailhead" denotes the point at which a hiking trail originates, this seems to him the ideal name for a new musical venture.
Musically influenced by the roots of the 60s and 70s, Panwitz 'songs present themselves with guitar, piano accompaniment, harmonica and ukulele, sometimes classic folky, sometimes finger-picking style. In combination with his warm, atmospheric singing, comparisons with musicians such as Crowded House, Tom Petty, Neil Young and Jackson Browne arise.
In 2014 the current album “Leave Me To Learn” was released. Songwriter melodies from the 70s and current folk / country trends meet the timeless contrast between restlessness and the desire to arrive. An attempt, a search, a journey through the songs on "Leave Me To Learn". "

"With the incredibly sad and touching opener" Snow Fields ", Bernhard Eder opens a new and very special chapter in his musical career." Perhaps the best German-speaking but English-singing songwriter "(Soundmag.de) starts with his fourth full-length player There have been break-up records in pop history time and again, from Marvin Gaye's “Here, My Dear” to Bon Iver's debut “For Emma, ​​Forever Ago”, which poetically failed Relationship.
However, “Post Breakup Coffee” is not just a lamentation. Sure: Of course the songs also convey self-pity, because without this feeling a painful breakup after a long relationship doesn’t happen, but there are also many other feelings: self-reproach missed your signs ”), anger (“ You told me I was wrong / But did you think of your own mistakes that much? ”), jealousy (“ Like John Lennon sang: I'm just a jealous guy ”) - the whole Palette.
«Originally I wanted to make a very reduced album, similar to my debut [“ The Livingroom Sessions ”, 2007]. Then I got an old home organ from a musician colleague, and a Fender Rhodes joined it. From there the sound slowly became lush. At some point more electric guitar came into play. You can use it to express feelings very well. " Almost idle to say what the guitar is doing: it sobs, howls, weeps. It is not for nothing that the motto of the album is a quote from the English writer Coates Kinney: "And the melancholy darkness gently weeps in rainy tears." A sentence that also inspired a certain George Harrison before Bernhard Eder.
The songs on "Post Breakup Coffee" go through the stages of a breakup. It begins with the surprising farewell ("Snow Fields") and the subsequent depression in the first pain of separation ("Sunday Primetime Soap Opera"). The title song tells of the first meeting afterwards, because she still has things in his apartment that she wants to pick up. He would like to keep her there again. This is followed by a total low point in “Paralyzed” and “Word’s Can’t Tell (What I'm Feeling)”. "Leaving Berlin" recapitulates the farewell to the big city, before a little horizon reveals itself in the last two songs. “Long Way to Run” is the title of the penultimate track, “Ode to My Friends” the conciliatory bouncer, with Eder's friends and companions forming the choir.
Musically, “Post Breakup Coffee” is a new timbre and a consequent further development of Eder's previous albums. "Just not indiefolk," was the motto. Then I prefer deeply moving sounds and moods that are reminiscent of the early 1970s. The eight songs take a lot of time, sometimes six minutes, to fully develop their effect. Longer instrumental passages and delicate psychedelics included.
In addition to the normal CD version, "Post Breakup Coffee" is also being released in a limited edition in book form and including a bonus CD with four additional tracks. Not only that this time the texts are of special importance, and worth being reproduced in an appealing way in printed form. The book, which reconstructs the text sketches originally created on a calendar pad, has also become a delight in terms of graphics. "

With their mixture of danceable melodies and a melancholy that always gently resonates in the background, they convince from the first bar. "

(Repeat on May 13, 2014)

"Dutch singer-songwriter Jacob Arch started his manifold career by founding the alternative pop band The Monads in 2003, releasing the album This Moment in 2004, an album which got into the selection of the acclaimed Amsterdamse Popprijs in 2005 and led to numerous concerts around the Netherlands. The same album got presented on the alternative radio station Kink FM.After obtaining a master's degree in philosophy at the Leiden University in 2006, Jacob Arch started his solo career by performing in varied venues in London, such as the renowned The Spice of Life in Soho.
Back in Amsterdam, he recorded the album Chants and he founded the experimental rock formation Moodwave in 2008, with which he performed this material on stage.
Along with his involvement in Moodwave, Jacob Arch continued focusing on his solo career, drawing from a wide range of influences to compose his music, such as reminisces of Jazz, Chanson and classical Spanish guitar music. With lyrics of a personal, poetical and philosophical nature, combined with a passionate and strong voice he has been described as a crossing between Leonard Cohen and Jacques Brel. In 2009, Jacob Arch was invited to perform on the Radio 5 National Dutch Radio Station.
December 2009 saw the release of his first music video, directed by Arno Inen (Mixtup), for his song The Enemy.
In 2010 Jacob Arch realized the multidisciplinary project Episodes for which ten visual artists had been invited to contribute a work inspired by the music and the lyrics of one the songs. The result was shown in the form of an interactive exhibition at the Gallery Victoria Kovalenchikova where all the art works were exhibited and the visitors, by wireless headphones, could listen to the song that matched the work of art, reading the lyrics which were printed on text panels - a combination of fine art and music. With this unique form of presentation the visitors found themselves in the center of three different expressions of the same 'episode' and were invited to form their interpretation. With this crossover project Jacob Arch found a way of implementing his philosophical background in his presentation as an artist.
A special edition of the album Episodes was released containing representations of the artworks and Jacob Arch got invited by Dutch journalist Adeline van Lier to perform and be interviewed in her radio show Nacht van het Goede Leven on Radio 1, Dutch national radio station.

"Multi instrumentalist, female music producer, singer and songwriter 'Revolution Child' unifies divine sounding frequencies into dark electronic clouds. Leading her atmospheric underground movement of rebellious nature with tribal drums and surreal sounding bell sounds. Wild and untamed, the universe unfolds next to the listener's ear transforming orchestral arrangements into epic space.
Performing her own rebellion on heavily synthesized sound layers with her band evaporating into neon lights and indigenous dance Revolution Child is an interesting and intriguing artist to watch out for. Based in Northern Germany and the U.K.'s capital city the eclectic singer adopts the philosophy of a global citizen in her music while being influenced by the likes of Bjork, Erykah Badu and M.I.A.
Like the roar nature of the Balkan where Hippies and Punks fly like free eagles her songs take you to a place between meditation and ecstasy connecting you to the divine force for a minute while your body is moved by the rhythms of Electronic Rebel Pop.
If GOD was a rebel, he would love Revolution Child. "

Perry O'Parson on Tuesday October 1, 2013 at 3 p.m.
(Repeat on January 7th and January 21st, 2014)

"It's a compliment to say that Perry O'Parson doesn't sound like a German musician at all. The man in his mid-twenties from near Karlsruhe has developed a holistic, reflective and catchy sound somewhere between Americana and indie rock and singer / songwriter. He wears his heart on his tongue in his pieces, the songs are melancholy and searching in terms of the tenor. Perry O'Parson makes music with the best ingredients from folk, which makes the pieces sound American through and through, to highways and desert bars, wide open country and the melancholy side of freedom. Which is due to the fact that he has a very formidable rough voice. And whether it's true or not: that gives him with his songs, which are also melodiously catchy and catchy the image of a great storyteller. "

(Repeat on October 29, 2013)

"In the summer of 2011, Lasse Matthiessen went to a living room concert in Berlin with his good friend Ian Fisher. Because they arrived early, they had time to talk about Lasse's planned album.
Lasse asked Ian what he thought of "Oh, Ulysses" - a song Ian had heard many times when Lasse gave solo concerts. On the record, however, he was recorded with a full band. Ian said: "Lasse," Oh, Ulysses "is a great song, but on this recording it sounds like a fucking christian band!". While Lasse laughed at Ian's direct manner, he asked how he thought the song should be received. Ian told him how. Lasse liked his idea and said, "Why don't we record the song together"?
Months passed and Ian and Lasse found each other at a living room concert again. Ian had invited Icelandic songwriter Halla Nordfjörd and as soon as she started singing, the two of them knew that Halla was exactly who the album needed. After a few months the three started rehearsing again. Lasse immediately began arranging the songs he had previously written for this new trio.
Lasse had always thought about making a record in an isolated and secluded place and although Berlin or Copenhagen were the most logical places to record an album at first glance, the crazy idea developed at the same time to do this in the hut of his friend Adress in Norway to do.
So they found themselves in this small hut on the south coast of Norway at the beginning of March 2012. It was freezing cold and snowing incessantly while the harsh Nordic wind whipped. Behind the trees you could hear the waves crash against the rocky coast. Can you think of a better place to record songs about winter, autumn, ice, death and broken love? "
