A Love I Can’t Explain: New Album Reviews

in Bittles' Magazine/Platte

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

With a cruel arctic chill threatening to overwhelm the country, it’s time for any sane person, or maybe just me, to consider giving up on the outside world and indulging in an extended duvet break. This week’s selection of albums will make the perfect soundtrack to cosying up in a home-made blanket fort with either your loved one or yourself. By JOHN BITTLES 

Lindi Ortega: Liberty

Folkdays … Vorfahren-Ortung von Lindi Ortega

in Platte

Musik | Lindi Ortega: Liberty

Migration und Kultur. Ich habe als Künstlerin und Autorin die kulturellen Veröffentlichungen und die künstlerische Situation internationaler Kulturschaffender auf dem Schreibtisch und in unseren Kulturzentren und Kunsttempeln. Auch in Liedern spiegeln sich Grenzsituationen wider. Von TINA KAROLINA STAUNER 

Slam

Post Dænce Floor Grooves: An Interview With Slam

in Bittles' Magazine/Menschen/Platte/Porträt & Interview

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

Slam are a band who need no introduction. With a name inspired by a legendary Phuture track the DJ/production duo of Stuart McMillan and Orde Meikle have, over the years, been responsible for some of the most vital techno and house to find its way to these ears. Their DJ sets in clubs such as Glasgow institutions Sub Club and The Arches have become the stuff of legend, while tracks like Positive Education, Stepback, Azure and Vapour are the highlight of any night spent on the dance floor.

Folk Collagen

FOLKDAYS… some Sweet Bays

in Platte

Musik | Crosby Tyler und MEIKO

Way of a Jingle Jangle Man – Crosby Tyler

Crosby Tyler who?

Simply some Bay Cuts. Was Crosby Tyler gerade tut, weiß ich nicht. Vermutlich ist er mit seiner Gitarre unterwegs oder geht irgendwo im Bay in einem Supermarkt einkaufen und steht in seiner Küche. Ich weiß nicht genau, wo er herkommt. Keine Ahnung, was für einen Lebenslauf er hat. Wo er hingeht, das weiß ich schon gleich gar nicht. Ich mutmaßte so manches. Von TINA KAROLINA STAUNER 

Neneh Cherry

Broken Politics And Trivial Occupations: Album Reviews

in Bittles' Magazine/Platte

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

After a short break, were I sailed around the world in an inflatable dingy, taught myself seven different languages, wrote the next great Irish novel (again), and shut Mr. Trump up for a while by giving him a piece of very sticky gum, it’s back to the day job, namely writing music reviews.

Jazuelle

A Time For Rebirth: An Interview With Jazzuelle

in Bittles' Magazine/Menschen/Platte/Porträt & Interview

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

Sometimes it feels like I am alone in thinking that house music should be sexy, sultry, and appeal to the heart and head as much as the feet. Recently I have become bored of clubs where you get accosted by drunken assholes, the dance floor is too jammed to permit the concept of personal space, while the night’s soundtrack is a limited palette of frantic, functional techno beats. Now, maybe it’s because I am getting a little older, but when I go out I want to hear music which doesn’t need to be played at ear-screeching volume to make a clued-up crowd move. By JOHN BITTLES 

Giant Sand

SHORT STORIES

in Live/Platte

Musik | Short Story | Is A Mood

Konzert von Giant Sand im Ampere. Szenepublikum. Sie gut gelaunt. Doch bald seltsam genervt von Howe Gelb. Der bricht ständig daneben und ironisch den guten Set. Die Band zieht dann das Ganze immer schnell wieder in die Qualität. Von TINA KAROLINA STAUNER
