Howie Reeve ‘Not so secret garden’ LP

Howie Reeve ́s next LP ‘Not so secret garden’ will be outed the 22nd of may in an edition of 500. Another proud collaboration with: Et mon cul c’est du Tofu? Singular interplay between voice and acoustic bass, purposefully growing into his own spiel, celebrating the grassy sidewalk cracks, the generousity of human spirit yet lamenting the strains of sadistic entitlement in our current states.

NI 'Dedoda' 12"

Three guitarists, one drummer, and nothing to fret about: NI are out there to save the universe, their exorbitant rock drone doing the hula hoop with templates, their outer-space free jazz swarming with noise-shaped JS Bach on natural steroids. Everything’s there, and everything’s there is shit hot.

Boasting members of such risky ventures as Tumido, Fang den Berg and Braaz, NI released their debut album in 2010 on Zach Records. As a direct consequence the quartet toured half the Continent, leaving it in a state of unadulterated exultation. May and June 2012 saw NI on another outing, regaling Central, Northern and Eastern Europe with their next offering: the follow-up, “Foxtrott”, was released on Interstellar Records as a very pink vinyl LP in a very green sleeve. The LP’s design smartly reflects the style and colour update of their stage kit: gone is the surreal astro-chic of yesteryear, their screamingly dazzling costumes now ushering in a neo(n) era of all senses transmogrified. And still the music is free from inhibitions yet complex; still it is as delightfully delicate as a damsel in distress, yet as brawny as a Bavarian barmaid. A second helping of brains washed down with Zweigelt, insanity on the highest of all possible levels. NI-ce.

Drei Gitarren, ein Schlagzeug und kein Grund zur Sorge. NI retten das Universum. Mit exorbitantem Rock, der Schablonen als Hoola Hoop-Reifen verwendet. Mit Free Jazz from outer space, konturiertem Noise und Johann Sebastian Bach auf körpereigenen Substanzen. Mit allem und scharf.

Zur NI-Belegschaft gehören Mitglieder von waghalsigen Formationen wie Tumido, Fang den Berg und Braaz. 2010 veröffentlichte das Quartett sein Debütalbum auf Zach Records. In der Folge bespielte man den halben Kontinent und hinterließ allerorts helle Begeisterung. Mai und Juni 2012 waren NI unterwegs, um in Mittel-, Nord- und Osteuropa ein frisch gepresstes Machwerk zu präsentieren. Der Zweitling „Foxtrott“ erschien auf Interstellar Records. Als grellpinkes Vinyl in grellgrüner Hülle. Das Artwork der Platte wurde stilistisch und farblich mit den Bühnen-Outfits abgestimmt. Der surreale Astronautenlook der Anfangszeit ist schrillen Neonkostümen gewichen. Ein Fest für alle Sinne. Und wieder ist die Musik enthemmt und komplex, filigran und wuchtig zugleich. Wieder ist es rohes Hirn mit Blumenstrauß. Wahnwitz auf höchstem Niveau. NI? Immer.

NI: Martin Flotzinger (dr), Tobias Hagleitner (git), Gigi Gratt (git), Manu Mitterhuber (git)

DAIKIRI 'Marcel Supra' LP

DAiKiRi is a duo drums and bass, vocals too… Psychedelic noise and epileptic speed funk. High energy sound eruptions and dada-esque poise. Hyperkraut lightning bolt melting a banana on an arab’s radar. Says DAiKiRi: Marcel Supra is a fictional character, you can see him on the cover of the record, he is the personification of the wood-burning stove that we use in our practice room.

A joint release of these labels: et mon cul c’est de tofu?, hola halo diy, la face cachee, naab, whosbrain records, ascenseur emotionel and red wig.

You can listen to the tracks here:

The record is out since 02.12.16: Release party was in Metz @ Les Trinitaires + Melt Banana

Reviewed in TRUST (Issue 183 – Apr/May 2017): Das Cover lässt einen etwas ganz anderes erwarten, als das was aus den Boxen dröhnt, legt man die CD ein.
Gut so, denn das Cover in seiner kunterbunten Gestaltung ist eher was für den Hipster Vegan-Laden um die Ecke. Musikalisch dagegen gefällt das ziemlich. Bass und Drums, dazu Gesang. Trotz des minimalistischen Setups sind die Songs sehr chaotisch, mal schnell, mal Midtempo Parts dazwischen. Street Eaters trifft Melt Banana. Gefällt sehr gut. (martin)
