The Mauskovic Dance Band - Soundway Records

mauskovicdanceband.bandcamp.com
The Mauskovic Dance Band was assembled by Amsterdam-based producer and multi-instrumentalist, Nicola Mauskovic, who recruited long time friends and collaborators. Like any self-respecting band of musical brothers they took the name, Mauskovic, as their group cognomen: Marnix Mauskovic (guitar, synth, percussion) and Mano Mauskovic (bass), along with Chocolate Space Donnie (vocals, keys, effects). Their unique sound caught the ear of underground Cumbia producer Juan Hundred, who later joined the band on drums.

Entirely self-produced, the band has reiterated their favourite elements of the 70s and 80s legacy of the Afro-Latin psychedelic music of Colombia and Peru, interpreting it through the context of modern day Amsterdam. The output is a lo-fi No Wave groove all its own – rooted in a deep love of champeta, Palenque, psychedelic cumbia, chichi, classic afrobeat and picó soundsystem culture.

Since the release of their “Down In The Basement” EP on Soundway Records in early 2018, the band have found themselves on a hectic touring schedule – not to mention being involved in other side projects. Following stints with Turkish psychedelic folk rock group Altin Gün, and touring with the re-formed 70s Zamrock outfit W.I.T.C.H., Nic Mauskovic also teamed up with Dutch neo-psychedelic artist Jacco Gardner to form the “cinematic Balearic disco” duo of Bruxas (released by Dutch institution Dekmantel) – and together, they mixed The Mauskovic Dance Band debut album in Lisbon.

Constantly in demand for live shows – not only does The Mauskovic Dance Band’s music flourish on stage particularly in a club, this time it was made in one. The album was recorded in the storage space of Amsterdam’s Garage Noord, a recent addition to the scene but already a favourite amongst clubgoers for its forward-thinking programming. Its industrial yet intimate nature permeates the album, lending it a pulsing, hypnotic and hazy atmosphere.

"They’re similarly inspired by the intergalactic, but it’s a far funkier affair. Blending Afro-Carribbean beats alongside Latin American genre-touchstones such as cumbia – more of which later – the Amsterdam group have their own cosmic brand of space-disco." NME

"The Mauskovic Dance Band are blessed with that rare and magical thing: a synergy and musical prowess which lets them change tempo or direction fluidly and without so much as a glance in one another’s direction. (The only other time I’ve experienced this to such a degree is watching many-membered Aussie psych big dogs King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard.)" The Quietus

Swedish Death Candy swedishdeathcandyuk.bandcamp.com

“In a post-modern society where logic is generally valued over spirituality, music is one of those mysteries that slipped through the cracks.”

It’s this kind of philosophical approach to life that has in large part influenced London-based international acid rockers SWEDISH DEATH CANDY’s forthcoming second album Are You Nervous?. Like so many young people in 2019, the members of Swedish Death Candy find themselves living in a state of uncertainty—not just in reference to the obvious current political unrest in the UK. “Environmental issues, technological advances…it feels like we’re on the brink of massive change,” says vocalist / guitarist Louis Perry, “so ‘Are You Nervous?’ felt like an appropriate title. I’m a big sci-fi fan, and the best science fiction is generally a social commentary based in a futuristic universe. I feel like we’re living in that time. We aren’t far from the future that a lot of the classic sci-fi novels refer to.”

Completed by guitarist Francesco Codardo, bassist Jiwoon Whang, and drummer Marco Ninni, the band were able to spend much more time considering individual sounds and how they fit within the sonic spectrum on the new album, hand-selecting the perfect tone for each moment. “To use a painting metaphor,” says Perry, “it felt like each brush stroke and colour combination was considered, as opposed to the first record, which was more like a photograph in that it was an attempt to capture the energy of a moment.” Recorded with Tobin Jones and assistant engineer Lucas Mendez at The Park Studios in Wembley, it’s a deeper delve into the band’s sprawling cultural influences than they’ve ever committed to tape before.

SPARKLING
FFO: Synth driven post-punk, Corners, Sextile, Art Brut.

SPARKLING from Cologne, Germany was formed by brothers Leon and Levin Krasel start playing music together at an early age, joined by Luca Schüten on Bass in 2013. Whilst studying at University and Art School, the group focussed their spare time on creating a distinctly unique sound and playing small sweaty clubs all across Europe. After living in London in 2015, visiting or playing gigs on a daily basis while working menial daytime jobs, Sparkling released their debut EP 'This is not the paradise they told us we would live in', produced by Moses Schneider, in 2016 and brought them praise across many german and international blogs and radios. Shows in Paris, as well as others in France followed and brought them to write a multilingual debut album, that features languages German, English and French. Having produced in Düsseldorf and London with Andy Ramsay from Stereolab, Sparkling are no product of a regional scene. This is the preeminent blueprint of a truly European band. Witness what it really means to be part of an open Europe, at a concert or listening to a record. As of now all of this can be heard on their first full-length album "I Want to See Everything", which will be released on August 23rd.

Drone Rock Records & Acid Box Promotions are teaming up for a second time to bring you some exceptional bands home to DRR, with an added bonus thrown in.


10 000 Russos
Although they're not on DRR Acid Box couldn't help but add these guys to this already mind boggling line up.
"They are a formidable force; their industrial psych/post-punk has been charming fuzz-heads across the globe with its stomping, shamanic mantras and otherworldly krautrock slant. their sophomore is so ritualistic and industrial it sees their usual post-punk sound – a primal and celestial mix of the fall, neu! and spacemen 3 – pushed within an inch of techno territory with its abrasive, metronomic rhythms. truly gripping stuff." Resident Brighton

GNOB
London-based trio meld loose stoner rock rhythms with eastern, psych-tinged, screaming guitar and soulful vocals, making for a vibrant, high octane ride.

Psychic Lemon
"Listen closely and you’ll hear everything from goat to the heads to amon duul ii to jimi hendrix plus loads, loads more – it’s incredibly rare to find a release this diverse yet this cohesive. "if you have ever wondered what a cross between primal scream, amon duul and jethro tull sound like then psychic lemon may just be the band for you. a curious amalgamation of sounds, their entire album is akin to freewheeling out of the cosmos on a wave of flutes and thumping bass lines. throw in a huge dose of bobby gillespie style vocals circa 'vanishing point' and you have an album fit for the title of most stupendous psych release so far this year.” echoes and dust." Resident Brighton

YETTI
A new addition to DRR, these Stoner heads have already supported the likes of Endless Boogie, The Cosmic Dead and Here Lies Man. Prepared to have your brains riffed out.

Stereocilia
Stereocilia is Bristol based guitarist and composer, John Scott. John uses his guitar and live looping techniques to create dense, rich layers of sound.

Cocaine Piss ~ cocainepiss.bandcamp.com
You can't start a band called Cocaine Piss and be serious at the same time, can you? It would be the equivalent of naming your kid something like Kick Me In The Head Throughout Life Whenever Possible Smith. It's not exactly the best commercial boost to a new thing. But ever since coming into twisted existence in 2014 in the Belgian city of Liège, pretty much as a bad taste joke, Cocaine Piss never really had time to consider such fine details, like having a band name that you can safely say in public, or just having any kind of plan for anything. They just revved the engine of the piss rocket and watched it launch, and before they knew it, it was flying sky-high.

Whipping up a chaotic mess with their high octane blend of punk and noise that's all over within 20/25 minutes. It's like Dead Kennedys, Bikini Kill and Melt Banana all playing at once while really high on their namesake substance, right up until the venue cuts the power and everything's suddenly over, leaving you euphoric, disoriented and punching walls just for fun. The atomic energy of their hit and run shows inevitably started to get some attention from bookers and press within the splash zone of Flanders and the Netherlands and so, like a crass joke that you can't stop from spreading, Cocaine Piss started to spread their fluffy wings across Europe too.

They have now recorded two full-length albums with Steve Albini, The Dancer and Passionate And Tragic. We're sure that wearing their t-shirt while winning a World Series of Poker event worked as a lucky charm for him.

LOWER SLAUGHTER

lowerslaughter.bandcamp.com

"Ferocious, politically aware lyrics from sinead young are once again front and center in a way that fans of petrol girls or harvey milk will enjoy, while the music itself takes the highs higher and the lows lower than before. expect almost glam-meets-motorhead rock power meeting blast beats dropping into girl band or idles-esque noise rock before twisting into something with the intensity of fugazi and pissed jeans. if you like your music on the heavy end then you’re gonna want to listen to this… “this record is basically a parade of big fucking riffs followed by big fucking breakdowns.” 8/10 – Loud and Quiet Magazine

Klaus Johann Grobe
klausjohanngrobe.bandcamp.com
Swiss duo Klaus Johann Grobe latest album “Du Bist So Symmetrisch“ came out October 26 2018 via Trouble In Mind Records. As the pair release their third album for the Chicago-based label, they continue to defy description and blur the lines between electronic pop, dance music, synthesis and kosmische.
“Du Bist So Symmetrisch“ follows the inevitable path laid out by their previous album (the Basel Prize- winning Spagat der Liebe), incorporating the slinky, jazz-fusion-laced grooves populating late night clubs and braiding them together with the band's own blend of mutant electro-funk. Driven by an organic, metronomic beat aligned with synth, chant-like vocals, and a monstrous funky bass, the music aims towards a certain kind of hypnosis, particularly as the sleeping pill echo-heavy vocals cycle over the locked grooves the pair throw down.

"It’s all about the vibe and the groove, which mellow and melancholy but decidedly danceable." - Brooklyn Vegan

GIRLS IN SYNTHESIS
girlsinsynthesis.bandcamp.com
Girls In Synthesis have quickly forged a fearsome reputation as one of the most exciting and volatile live acts in London. In equal parts frantic, considered, ear-splitting and melodic, the group take their cues from the early DIY punk and post-punk pioneers to keep everything in-house; artwork, videos, performances and recordings are created entirely by the group and their handful of trusted collaborators, with their 3 hand-packaged vinyl E.P releases selling out in days on pre-orders.

Experimentation sees them transgress the punk bracket into something more original and unique while stage shows present a complete and controlled spectacle, with the group moving from playing on stage to dragging equipment into the audience, desperately trying to remove the group/audience barrier. Their explosive shows have seen them hand picked for support slots with bands as disparate as Bad Breeding, Slaves, Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs, Wolf Alice, Warmduscher and Damo Suzuki.

Recent EP compilation ‘Pre/Post: A Collection 2016-2018’ saw glowing reviews from outlets such as Louder Than War, Echoes and Dust and Ox Magazine and, after selling out its initial run, is planned for re-issue in September 2019. With new material scheduled for release in Fall/Winter 2019, the band are spending the summer finishing off their debut album proper, pencilled in for an early 2020 release.

The Psychotic Monks
"From their sound check, I would not have guessed what their performance would have ended up being like. Influenced by bands like Nick Cave, Joy Division, and Sonic Youth, their songs ranged from angular and melodic to atonal walls of sound and noise. But what really made the performance was the emotion and energy each member poured into it. Particularly the final song, began with an alternately tuned guitar giving a sense of unease, building in volume and anxiety as guitarist/vocalist Martin Bejuy poured gut-wrenching emotion for several minutes of what looked like a form of catharsis, an emptying of the soul. Once the song stopped, he quickly left the room, obviously needing a moment of solitude after what seemed like a very personal experience. It was a sight to behold, this live show. If you ever get the chance to see them live, do it. Their 2017 debut album Silence Slowly and Madly Shines is available now and they will be releasing a new record at the end of March." - KEXP

The Blank Tapes

theblanktapes.com
The new album by The Blank Tapes, 'Look into the Light’ is Matt Adams and company's most hard rocking, psychedelic album yet features the phenomenal drumming of Shaughnessy Starr of Frankie & The Witch Fingers and Hoover III with some grooving bass playing by Jason Cirimele of Guantanamo Baywatch and The Donkeys. Veronica Bianqui sings back up vocals on every song as well. The new LP features studio versions of 3 songs played live on the Jam In The Van video series, as well as 4 brand new songs with Adams’ most ambitious guitar shredding yet. Co-mixed by Nathan Sabatino of Jim James & Dr. Dog. The album art drawn was also drawn by Matt Adams.

Last July The Blank Tapes also released “Super Bloom” EP on Australia’s Brown Truck Records with 6 tracks of "heady, fuzzed-out psychedelic jams that twist, contort, and reach for the stratospheres” -Impose Magazine

New album “Look into the Light” is out on Oct. 26 2019 on Nomad Eel Records.

The Blank Tapes is the moniker of Los Angeles based multi-instrumentalist Matt Adams, who has produced over a dozen albums of 1960’s inspired folk-rock-surf-psych-soul-pop on Volcom, Burger Records, Antenna Farm and others. The Blank Tapes have toured throughout America, Canada, Brazil, UK, Europe and Japan. Matt is also the artist behind his band’s posters and album covers.

Stonefield ~ stonefield.bandcamp.com
What a year it's been for the Findlay sisters, storming The Great Escape back in May and stunning new album and a SOLD OUT tour with King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard.

From practicing in their family shed as teenagers in rural Australia, to touring the world with Fleetwood Mac, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, King Tuff, and King Gizzard, it’s been a strange trip for the four Findlay sisters. As Stonefield, they’ve got three albums and thousands of miles under their belts, plus plenty of perspective on what it’s like to fight to make a place for themselves, and tell their own story.

Written largely on the road in America earlier this year, the songs on BENT are filled with reference and reflection—the kind that comes from months spent far from home, living on four wheels. The surreal isolation of trudging through white-out snow and snaking down deserted highways served as the perfect backdrop for the band to look inward, taking stock of the journey they’ve taken thus far as musicians, and as people. “It’s a culmination of experiences, emotions, and stories collected over time,” explains lead singer and drummer Amy Findlay, “A growth of honest, raw, energy that has been burning within us and waiting for its moment.”

Recorded in just five days with Joe Walker and Stu Mackenzie from King Gizzard at their studio in Melbourne, the album is almost 100% live.
