b.fleischmann is going to release his 4th album on morr music on november 14th. please have a look at a fm4 radio session 2008, recorded in the renown station in vienna and see with your own eyes and ears what b.fleischmann is up to these days. some german press says "als hätten sich The Notwist, Lambchop, Rober Wyatt und die späten Talk Talk zu einer Session verabredet..." (keys mag) and we say it..s a very personal album for our most beloved viennese and for the very first time, you..ll find himself singing on two songs. the new album is avaiable is released today and also available via itunes!
>> stereogum band to watch: surf city / debut ep out now!
the fantastic debut ep by surf city (now also available via itunes) is finally released on morr music and leading us indie music outlet stereogum is featuring surf city as band to watch. and other quotes don..t sound less promising: "the band makes good on their citations of the zombies, sonic youth, and animal collective, as influences, so don't expect straight-up aping." stereogum (u.s.a.)."...modern indie rock sound inspired by american indie heroes from the pixies to modern day acts like clap your hands say yeah, tapes 'n' tapes, the shins - and perhaps there's even a smidge of deerhunter in there too." boomkat (u.k.). „...drängelnd, elektrisierend und aufgekratzt. pavement meets television." intro mag (germany). "... ungestüm wie die erste strokes-single" on3 radio (germany). "...often associated with prime sonic youth..., with obvious echoes of the cure." brainwashed (u.s.a.).
>> big in 2009: sin fang bous
next year there will be his first full-length, now here's the first teaser: Sindri Mar Sigfusson is not only a part of "Seabear", futhermore he's a musical think-tank. "Sin Fang Bous", his new solo-project, is a playground for all of his ideas: Just listen to the two Songs on his first 7inch: You'll find weird electronic snippets, feastful refrains, swirling pianos or hypertensioned drum computers. But be assured: This is no collage, all of the varying elements submit to the song. And what songs we find here!
"Advent in Ives Garden / Clangour & Flutes" is an euphoric release including a bunch of ideas, commensurate with bands like "Animal Collective", "Caribou" or "Panda Bear" - even when "Sin Fang Bous" music is more focussed on pop. A highly charming record!
