time flies and we are already in the midth of October. Thanks for showing up at our little label thingy in Berlin during the Music Week! We just loved seeing a packed Schokoladen and had a lot of fun! Hope to see ya’ll very soon. But now enjoy reading a brand new Siluh communique!
|CHEERS WAVES VIENNA
Waves Vienna hit the city last weekend and we had a great time there. Apart from some teething problems we feel it was a very nice festival. Special thanks to TBA, The Gap, MICA and Ink Music for making it happen and finally putting Vienna on the world-map of pop music! Looking forward to Waves Vienna 2012!
For a little recap, check out this lovely review by the-fly.co.uk, amongst others featuring “ace slacker-rockers” Killed by 9V batteries, ALASAC Duo (“quiet highlight of the festival”), M185 and many more!
|GARY SNOWCATS EP
After playing a few gigs in Austria in September, the Garyband rushed back to Berlin to finish their brand new album, which is due in January 2012. So keep your eyes and ears open for some fresh pleasures very soon!
In the meantime, you might want to check out Gary’s „Snowcats EP“ featuring a very old, one slighty old and one brand new song. The best of it: you can download it for free on their Bandcamp site. Have fun!
|LUISE POP-a-lot @FLEX
Wooohooo, our surf noir kittens Luise Pop just entered the FM4 charts with their single „Black Cat“ We like!
Make sure to catch the band this Wednesday, Oct. 12th, at the Flex in Vienna together with The Helmut Bergers for the second edition of the FM4 Soundpark meets Flex series. Entry is only 5 Euros, so you can spend the rest of your money on booze!
|KILLED BY 9V BATTERIES
The Batts have just released their third studio album „The Crux“ and will soon hit the road to visit you guys in Switzerland, Austria and Germany. See all the tourdates below! Further, Killed by 9V Batteries will play a FM4 Studio2-Session together with Partrick Pulsinger and Wolfram on October, 26th. Expect some legendary performance with the finest Austrian musicdudes mixing different genres creating the current sound of awesomeness.
Moreover, you have to watch the new „Track to the Crux“ video by Robert Oberrainer. This little gem takes you back to the good old days of yuppie brokers with big grins using their oversized „mobile“ phones.
In case you didn’t get a chance to grab the album, yet, it is finally available in our little weboutique. For our pals living on the UK islands we recommend ordering the album at Norman Records.
||CLUB WEIRD KONG /w Moustache of Insanity (UK)
Last month’s Kong with Sissiboi (Nil Desperandum) and Vina Yun (Club Fiorucci) on the decks was already a little foretaste of what this Kong season is yet to deliver. October’s Club Weird Kong will feature an appearance of Moustache of Insanity from the UK. They have been compared to everything from The Moldy Peaches to Jens Lekman, via The Television Personalities, but describe themselves as playing “some sort of friendly casio-pop-folk-occasionally punky-bouncy-rock-fun-mess”.
