Chocolate Soup
A deafening mass of sonic magma, epic fuzz guitar flying over the fearsome motorik machine of bass and drum.
The fervent swayed hips and crazy energy are resolutely garage, but the psychedelic music of 70’s (kraut and space rock at the top of line) is never far.

The three guys come from Toulouse, south of France, and their first EP, “Space is the Key”, was released in June 2017 via Howlin Banana (fr) and Exag ‘records (be). Inspired by Alain Damasio’s science fiction novels and the work of French illustrator Pierre Ferrero, Space is the Key is ruthless. A raucous wall of sound and energy that sets the trio up for nothing but greatness. Five Nervous tracks loaded up with fuzz mayhem and maniac beats sharp enough to knock your head off spinning with their hypnotics riffs. This is followed by a European tour that has been going on for almost a year now. Since 2017, they’ve shared the stage with a lot of bands they like to listen to in the van, Ty Segall, Chocolat, 10.000 Russos, Bonnacons of Doom, Korto, Yo No Se, Go!Zilla and many others.

In winter 2017, they’ve recorded “La Planète Inexplorée”, with the engineer/producer and guru of the French garage, Lo Spider. In Toulouse, in his studio Swampland records, on a tape Tascam 15 tracks (normally 16, but one was dead :D).
Most of the album came from jams late at night, a lot of improvised material (as on stage), probably due to the group’sobsession with the krautrock scene and 70’s free jazz albums. The texts are sci fi divagations and it is intended to create wormholes or to awaken an ice giant that has been sleeping for millennia on a distant planet.
The album was mastered by the producer Jim Diamond (The GO, Fleshtones, Sonics, White Stripes ..) king of the regretted Ghetto recorder in Detroit.
“La Planète Inexplorée” was released on September 28 via Stolen Body, Howlin Banana, Six Tonnes de Chairs, Exag’ and Rockerill Records and Ya Ya Yeah. Each label has its own outstanding color edition.
Hotel Goldmarie
Die Berliner Indie-Formation HOSTEL GOLDMARIE, benannt nach einer berüchtigten Berliner Touri-Unterkunft, wurde 2011 von ehemaligen Mitgliedern unter anderem der Bands SUPERLEUTNANT und BUSENWUNDER gegründet. Angefüllt mit dem Humor aus der Mitte des Lebens ist HOSTEL GOLDMARIE eine musikalische Herberge für die übrige Zeit.
Die vier Bandmitglieder setzten auf einfache, aber wirkungsvolle Einrichtung ihrer deutschsprachigen Songs. Gitarre, Gitarre, Bass, Drums. Manchmal ein Break, manchmal ein Schreien. Und jede Menge positive Energie. Auf CD und Digital. Ist das noch Rock? Ist das schon Pop? Oder ist das: dein neues Zuhause?
