The Ballet Bombs [NL]

Psychedelic Garage Punk

These psychedelic stooges push their sound to the very edge of sonic sanity with crazy interstellar oscillations, drowning reverb and speaker crunching fuzztones! 
But they’d rather call themselves the Blink 182 of garage fuzz.

Hot Garbage [CAN] / Mark Spark [D]

dark post-punk and motorik krautrock

Hot Garbage have a penchant for melting into a heavily volatile yet undeniably palatable amalgamation of sonic elements. Calling on the driving rhythms of dark post-punk and motorik krautrock, the Toronto-based outfit seamlessly works shining melodies and swirling textures into deliberate, brooding arrangements. With an eclectic range of inspiration spanning genres and art forms, fans of CAN, Broadcast, and 70’s era Iggy will find a familiar pull into the raw sound. 

Following the release of two EP’s, Hot Garbage entered the studio with Juno-nominated producer Graham Walsh (of evil experimental Toronto supergroup Holy Fuck) in early 2020 to cut a selection of tracks, with the majority of tracking done live off the floor. The result was a blazing standalone single, Easy Believer, and the group’s debut long play offering, RIDE, composed of 33 reverb-soaked minutes to be pressed to vinyl and released on Mothland in October 2021. RIDE quickly made its way into SiriusXM rotation on CBC Radio 3 and The Verge, and climbed to #3 on the Earshot Top 50 and #82 on the NACC Top 200.

“...the album’s squall of fuzzed-out guitars and drawling, Sonic Youth-style vocals (recorded live off the floor) deftly conjure a thick haze of smoke and sweat…”
— EXCLAIM!

“The new single serves as the album opener, and sets the tone with a perfect balance of post-punk and krautrock.”
— INDIE88

“In short, it’s the kind of album you throw on loud when you want to get lost and laugh into the void.”
— AQUARIUM DRUNKARD

More Kicks [UK] / Social Company [D]

Garage-Power-Pop

MORE KICKS is an explosion of pop melodies, jet-fuelled guitar riffs and dynamic, shifting rhythms.
The band arrived at the end of 2017 on London’s garage scene. The self-titled debut album was released in November 2019 on a coalition of five independent labels (Wanda Records, Snap Records, Dirt Cult Records, Beluga Records and Adrenalin Fix Music) – a concise and ragged lesson in pop songwriting dripping in melody, cynicism and energy. 
The first two singles (‚It’s A Drag‘ and ‚I’m on the Brink‘) received extensive radio airplay across Europe and America while the debut album has received universally positive reviews since its release.
More Kicks has toured in the UK, Spain, Germany, France and the Netherlands, playing headline gigs, festivals and club nights with the likes of Buzzcocks, Baby Shakes, Dirty Fences, The Briefs and many more.
Since 2020 – and the inevitable enforced pause in touring – the trio have been hidden away making loud music in tiny rooms with a second record finished and ready to drop.
The upcoming second LP ‚Punch Drunk‘ is a huge step forward for the band and is released in Summer 2022.

 

Liebe das Leben, liebe dich selbst. “Good Life” ist das erste Studioalbum der Band Social Company aus Köln, eine emotionale Reise auf der Suche nach Halt im Leben und dem eigenen Platz in der Gesellschaft im Angesicht der Klimakatastrophe, globalen Krisen und rücksichtslosem Kapitalismus. Die vier Musiker liefern zehn neue Songs auf dem Album, welche sich stilistisch zwischen Punk, Alternative Rock, Indie und Pop bewegen. Im Vergleich zur vorangegangenen EP “Lakehouse Sessions” wird die musikalische Bandbreite nochmal wesentlich erhöht, zwischen sanften Klaviersoli, strahlenden Trompetenklängen und fetzigen Riffs bietet jeder Song ein einzigartiges Erlebnis. Das Album ist ein Garant für Adrenalin und Endorphine. 

 

Einlass: 20h, Beginn: 21h, Eintritt: 12€
