Bittles' Magazine/Platte

Music | Bittles’ Magazine: The music column from the end of the world

This week I have taken it upon myself to highlight, in no particular order, some of the albums released in the first half of 2017 which have forced me to crack a smile, and convinced me that getting out of bed isn’t a complete waste of time. By JOHN BITTLES

Folkdays … Wilco-Songs minimalistisch

Platte

Musik | Jeff Tweedy: Together At Last

Jeff Tweedy, das ist einerseits ein Singer-Songwriter, andererseits ist er der Macher von Wilco in Zusammenarbeit mit John Stirratt, Glenn Kotche, Mikael Jorgensen, Nels Cline und Pat Sansone. Er war auch einmal mit dem Band-Projekt Golden Smog zu hören und es gibt neue Bands von ihm genannt Loose Fur und Tweedy. Das zuerst kurz als Fakten. Von TINA KAROLINA STAUNER

Our Love Is Dust: New Album Reviews

Bittles' Magazine/Platte

Music | Bittles’ Magazine: The music column from the end of the world

Now that festival season is firmly upon us it can be hard to find music prepared to take chances, experiment, or which has a sense of emotional depth. Short DJ sets, unimaginative selectors, and impatient crowds mean that subtlety and nuance can be overlooked in the search for the next chant-a-long, or hands in the air anthem. This week I will be highlighting some music you are unlikely to hear at Space or Glastonbury, but which will challenge you and light up your day. By JOHN BITTLES

Aural Stimulation For Distracted Minds

Bittles' Magazine/Platte

Music | Bittles’ Magazine: The music column from the end of the world

Good music should please the listener, cozying up to them like an old friend. Great music should challenge our prejudices, taking us down avenues and through landscapes which, alone, we would fear to tread. In this week’s article I will be reviewing some new music which challenges perceptions, gets us dancing, and will, hopefully, linger long in the mind. By JOHN BITTLES
Lambchop - Flotus

Folkdays… Lambchop mit FLOTUS

Platte

Musik | Lambchop: FLOTUS

»In the end I just really wanted to make a record that my wife would like,« verbreitet Kurt Wagner über seine aktuelle CD ›FLOTUS‹. Jedenfalls hat der 58-jährige Wagner, immerhin so was wie Musikergenius mit Lambchop, diese Veröffentlichung seiner Frau Mary gewidmet. Die Songs sind ein facettenreiches, komplexes Themenspektrum.

Beapoeten - Geheul

Brennende Flagshops, umhäkelte Laternen

Platte

Musik | Auf Platte – Beatpoeten: #Geheul

#Geheul heißt die neue Scheibe der Beatpoeten, einer aus Hannover stammenden Band, die aus Sänger und Texter Jan Egge Sedelies und Soundtüftler Costa Carlos Alexander besteht. STEFAN HEUER beschwört Erinnerungen an die gute alte Vinyl-Zeit herauf.
Mario & Robot

The Soul Of The Machine

Music | Bittles’ Magazine: The music column from the end of the world

Fans of graceful soundscapes and bittersweet electronica are probably already familiar with the name Mario Hammer And The Lonely Robot. 2015’s  L’esprit De L’escalier for Cologne label Traum was a cerebral and mesmerising journey into the soul. With the highest of production values, and an open-hearted emotional core, its thirteen tracks of soft-focus ambiance were, and still are, a rare treat for the ears. By JOHN BITTLES

Free Jazz, Free Space & Impro: ›What If‹ von Hauschka

Platte

Musik | ›What If‹ von Hauschka

Der Komponist Volker Bertelmann ist auch der Musiker Hauschka. Und seine Alben gehören zum Avantgardistischen der aktuellen Düsseldorfer Musikszene. Hauschka spielt als Pianist und Instrumentalist einerseits mit altbekannten und andererseits mit neuen Ideen: Beats verschieben sich, Ebenen sind ineinander verschachtelt. Von TINA KAROLINA STAUNER

The Art Of Standing Still: Record Reviews

Bittles' Magazine/Platte

Music | Bittles’ Magazine: The music column from the end of the world

Nothing stands still. Except for my good friend Stand Still Jones of course, but that’s another story. This is why I have decided to re-jig my singles reviews. Once a month, (or whenever I can be bothered) I will be highlighting some of the records which have been making me go all gooey-eyed, or demanding repeated plays. Most will be new, some will be old. Hopefully, everything included will raise a cheer. A review by JOHN BITTLES
