Candice Gordon

Kantine am Berghain | 16.03.2018

A little bit psych, a little bit country, a little bit doom, we’re in love with Frau Gordon’s sound. At times playful, at times ritualistic, the visuals that accompany Candice Gordon’s music always give you a better insight to where she’s coming from but not always where she’s headed to next.

Decibelles | Tanning Bats

Urban Spree | 26.03.2018

Another duo from France but much heavier hitting, these belles should not be fucked with.

Jamie Stewart (of Xiu Xiu)

Roter Salon – Volksbühne | 14.04.2018

I was just sucked into a Youtube click hole and discovered that Jamie Stewart has recorded covers of Rihanna, Tracy Chapman, Joy Division, Bauhaus, Suicide and The Pussycat Dolls. Perhaps most importantly he has covered Queen and Bowie’s “Under Pressure” with M. Gira of Swans. Here’s hoping that he plays all of these songs along with “Fabulous Muscles” in April.
