Unsere Freunde vom Spex fanden das damals echt spitze!

LEGO HOUSE BY JAMES MAY
Remember the time you spent weeks building spaceships, houses, cars, airplanes, warriors and robots with you lego collection?

Here´s the ultimate challenge; UK toy master James May - aparently he´s got a TV show on BBC just about toys - had the fantastic idea to built his house in the middle of britains wineyards. The only difference: the house is entirely built with lego! and i´m not talking about the bigger duplo bricks if you think this might be a joke... no! it´s the real and original lego bricks. all together more than 800 million pieces! and the best: it looks pretty cool!

i just checked his website - if you wanna join him yourself or with your kids you can just drop by and help him! genius!

ROBOT COWBOY

this reminds me a bit on Cpt. Spacesex, berlin electro punk pioneer in the early 90ies.
..... such an amazing live performer!

so check out Robot Cowboy from Sweden - using Pure Data, a keyboard, computer, midi guitar and sensors in the suit to activate sound and rhythm.  he is actually wearing some sort of computer and plays the midi signals directly onto the screen... amazing!

just heared he´s gonna be playing Sao Paulo end of July. Don´t miss this one if you´re around! 
this is how future sound systems look like!

throw your macbook away and let´s get moving!


thanks to thomash at voodoohop for finding this one!

BLACK CAB SESSIONS

Um dos símbolos de Londres, como todo mundo sabe, é o tal do black cab. O que muita gente não sabe é que existem as 'Black Cab Sessions': sessões gravadas com bandas dentro do famoso taxi preto.
Acontece mais ou menos assim: a banda, um camera e um responsável pela gravação do som param um taxi qualquer na rua e pedem para gravar uma sessão na parte de trás do taxi, onde cabem 5 pessoas. Com o consentimento do taxista, que cinco minutos atrás não sabia de nada, todos entram no taxi e gravam uma musica, em um take.
Sempre apresentadas pelo taxista da vez, as Black Cab Sessions já gravaram Beach House, Fleet Foxes, Jens Lekman e até Brian Wilson. A última, gravada em 06/05, foi com o Grizzly Bear.

FANFARLO

Eu já tinha ouvido falar deles algumas vezes aqui e ali, mas nunca me chamou atenção o suficiente para ir correndo atrás deles. Quem sabe se eu tivesse descoberto essa beleza de banda antes, os últimos meses não teriam sido tão difíceis como foram...

Li no twitter que a Clash tinha feito uma sessão exclusiva com a música '
Harold T. Wilkins or How To Wait For A Very Long Time' , e resolvi assistir. Já logo no comecinho do video eu tive certeza que seria mais uma daquelas bandas que dão vontade de sair de casa correndo para ir comprar o disco. E no final, confirmado: estou saindo para comprar o discão deles.



Isso me lembra do que eu senti na primeira ouvida do
Funeral, do Arcade Fire. Definitivamente, uma das bandas mais promissoras da cena inglesa.

I WANT YOU TO WANT ME / GAEL GARCIA BERNAL
Certainly one of the most extreme coverversions i heared in a while!

Cheap Trick´s "I Want You To Want Me" in a Mexican Country version is featured in the new Carlos Cuaron movie "Rudo y Cursi". 

Directed by his brother Alfonson Cuaron (Amores Perros, Y Tu Mama Tambien, Children Of Man) this pathetic mexican Comedy is a story about the rise and fall of 2 poor brothers from the countryside who become professional soccer superstars. The 2 brothers are played by Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna, they play soccer -  get discoverd - and then put on rival teams!

Check the "Rudo y Cursi" trailer - can´t wait to see the movie!

SPOTIFY

Nesse último mes aqui no UK nao se ouviu falar de outra coisa a não ser o Spotify. Mas afinal, o que é isso?

O Spotify é um programa de streaming, daqueles que voce procura um artista ou musica, acha e põe pra tocar. A diferença é que, ao contrário de outros como o last.fm, ele disponibiliza todas as musicas de todos os artistas que você poderia querer. Quer dizer, quase todos. E ainda por cima, o streaming é rápido e sem buffering.

Baixado e instalado, eu fui conferir...

Of montreal: OK
Britney Spears (eu sei, eu sei. foi só um teste): OK
Neutral Milk Hotel: OK
Sugarplastic: tá, ai já é pedir demais.

Mas poxa, de todas as bandas que eu procurei só não achou uma, e uma bem desconhecida. O resto estava tudo lá, discografias completas, todos os álbuns ali, na minha frente.
E voce ainda pode escolher pela free account ou pela premium, sem propagandas. A premium custa £10 por mes, ou £o.99 por 24h.


Por enquanto, servico está disponivel só em alguns paises na europa. É esperado que o serviço seja ampliado para outros lugares em breve, mas ainda não deram nenhuma previsão. Para mais informações sobre os países, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spotify .
PALAIS SCHAUMBURG - WIR BAUEN EINE NEUE STADT


Here´s a great video by Palais Schaumburg, german new wave band from Hamburg.
With their unique avant garde sound and their dadaistic attitude they´ve been a major influence
for the entire german electronic and wave scene at that time. Palais Schaumburg released one
of my favourite punk funk tracks "Wir bauen eine neue Stadt" back in ´81 !

check it out, this track by Holger Hiller (vocals) and Thomas Fehlmann (the orb)
is soooo fresh and soooo modern, ..... genius!

so if you´re coming down to VOODOOHOP in SP next friday 13.03 / bar do netao / augusta 822,
..... i definetly gonna play this one!

PARSON RED HEADS


Os Fantásticos
Parson Red Heads, de Los Angeles, vão lançar um EP novo em abril. Depois de lançar o debut em 2007 e um EP em 2008, ambos MUITO bons, eles voltam com mais algumas musicas para a alegria dos alternativos mais sessentistas.
O som deles é uma coisa que te lembra um pouco aquele clima Woodstock, com muita influencia de anos 60, mas ao mesmo tempo com um 'que' de coisa nova. Tipo um sunshine indie, saca?
Eles são ao todo 9 pessoas na banda, só se vestem de branco nos shows e moram todos em um grande apartamento-estúdio em Los Angeles. Alguns deles são parentes, 2 são realmente ruivos, o vocalista é casado com a baterista e eles ainda tem codinomes na banda, todos terminando com 'Parson', mesmo que esse não seja o sobrenome de nenhum deles. Não sei vocês, mas eu achei bacana.



Sobre o EP novo, ele será lançado em Abril, e ainda não tem nome. Para resolver esse problema, eles fizeram uma
votação no myspace deles.
Lá você escolhe entre dois nomes tão esquisitos quanto a banda em si:
Unicornicopia ou Orangufang.

HUMAN SKATEBOARD / WESTERN SPAGHETTI BY PES




"Clicking on a PES film is to open a safe and suddenly see a million ideas glittering and exploding" 

...this is what Michel Gondry says about PES, Animation Filmmaker from Harlem / New York....  and PEZ definetly is one of these directors with the weirdest ideas and the most amazing choice of objects to be used in his Stopmotion Short movies.  "Western Spaghetti" has just been selected for Sundance, the Time Magazin named it the second best Viral of the Year!

I know there are millions of new stuff to post, some of them brilliant, and I should be posting some of these new stuff. Maybe next time...
Today's post is about a guy that, in my opinion, is the best musician of the alternative scene. Also, he has been releasing fantastic albums, one after the other.
Andrew Bird graduated in violin performance, and also plays guitar, glockenspiel, mandolin AND whistles. All of them brilliantly. By now you should be able to tell he is part of that 'baroque' team, that includes Joanna Newson and Fleet Foxes.

In 2007 he released his album Armchair Apocrypha, which is one of these albums that I HAVE TO listen to at least once every two or three days. Filled with a mix of nostalgic and melancholic mood, it carries you from song 1 to 12 smoothly, without that urge to skip a track. Bird uses his proficiency in violin, glockenspiel and whistling to create elaborated, yet conforting and warming melodies. And as opposed to many other violin players, he isn't annoying at all.
That makes Armchair Apocrypha one of my favourite albums of the last years.

Now he returns with a new album, Noble Beast, that's due to be released on the 20th of January on the US and on the 2nd of February on the UK. I am waiting for it eagerly, and as soon as I have listened to it properly, I will write something about it here. Until then, I leave you with a track of the brillian Armchair Apocrypha.

FUCK YOGA! GREAT STORE - GREAT PRODUCTS

It started as a joke. My ex-wife was extremely passionate about her yoga practice. As a gag for her birthday I made each of us a fuck yoga t-shirt. She refused to wear hers. I wore mine for thirty-nine straight days and was stopped everywhere I went. A write up in The New York Observer and a photo in GQ Magazine got it rolling. An appearance on Sex and the City made it interesting. The first on-line sale came from two brothers in Bogotá, Colombia and the second from a cheerleader in Grand Island, Nebraska. Since then we’ve filled in a lot of the map. Jackie Gleason didn’t do yoga, either did Jackie Robinson, Eleanor Roosevelt or any Pope ever. 

Yoga has survived for thousands of years and will survive for thousands more. It’s just that it has gone unopposed for too damn long.

JESSIE EVANS - IS IT FIRE?

The first time i saw Jessie Evans live a year ago in Berlins 103 Club, supported by the incredible Namosh. What an amazing show! Her sound is a weired mix of punk funk, afro beat, mexican 60ies and punk jazz which makes people immediately start to dance, even if they never heared one of her tracks before. On stage it´s just her playing saxophone and singing plus the AMAZING Toby Dammit on drums.... !  and that´s not just drums - Toby Dammit is the ultimate drum stylist! One drumstick in his left hand, 2 cabassas in his right hand - he could have been in a band with Yma Sumac, Perez Prado or Les Baxter before he teamed up with Jessie!

Her upcoming album IS IT FIRE has been recorded between Berlin and Mexico (mixed and co-produced by Pepe Mogt / Nortec Collective) with guest musicians like Martin Wenk / Calexico and Namosh.

This is amazingly fresh and surprising music you can dance to! Where Hercules and Love Affair have a bit more Disco - Jessie Evans has more Punk Funk. It´s her attitude which makes the difference. There is nobody like her. The only cool reference would be 80ies no disco & no wave bands like The Slits or Pigbag, who mixed afro beat and brazilian maracatu with rough dance beats.... but what could be better than that? 

so check it out, its amazing.... ! 
can´t wait to hear the new Jessie Evans album - should be out pretty soon!

Hoje a cena alternativa londrina perde um dos seus maiores patrimônios: O Astoria, uma das casas de show mais características de Londres, fecha suas portas pela última vez.
Nas últimas décadas, o Astoria foi um ponto de referência na cena. O ritual de passagem de uma banda 'mais ou menos grande' para uma banda grande incluía, sem exceções, um show 'sold out' na casa. Fora isso, vários artistas escolheram lá para shows especiais, gravações de dvds, videos, discos, shows secretos... O Blur fez uma residência de 5 dias consecutivos em 2003, o Radiohead gravou o VHS
Live at the Astoria em 1994 e até os Rolling Stones fizeram um show secreto lá, em 2003.

Ontem foi a última noite do Astoria, com o
Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly tocando no 'Baile da Demolição', e hoje o Astoria 2 fecha com a sua festa semanal PUSH, com show do Cajun Dance Party e do Good Shoes. Depois disso, o teatro vai ser demolido para dar lugar à 'tão esperada' rota de trem east-west.
A
Festival Republic, atual dona do Astoria, diz que em um futuro próximo abrirão um substituto para o Astoria, mas com capacidade bem menor. Fora isso, nenhuma outra informação ou projeto por parte deles. Já da parte dos novos donos do espaço, a partir de 2017 a estação de Tottenham Court Road se ligará com a linha east-west, e terá uma area de bilheteria 6 vezes maior do que o atual. Útil, não?

PAT C - KLAPPRAD / DATABASE & SIRIUSMO REMIXES
Hailing from Sao Paulo are the brilliant Database, remixing the first single "Klapprad" of Pat C´s brandnew Album "Pode C", which is just been released in Brasil.  ... boooming basslines on electro beats just transform the original Poptrack into a edbangbangbang dancefloorbomb for all these new and hip Sao Paulo nights at Vegas, D-Edge and Gloria... alongside acts like Bo$$ in Drama, Frabricio Martinelli, Killer on the Dancefloor and Bonde do Role the 2 boys from Database just run the best Party nights in Sao Paulo at the moment. They´ve just been asked to put out their first 12inch vinyl on Southern Fried in the UK.

The second remix is by SiriusMo from Berlin. He´s been remixing Klapprad a while ago already - really poppy in the beginning - getting wilder soon - dropping a distorted bass on top of super catchy synthi keylines! SiriusMo has been remixing Yelle, Simian Mobile Disco and Modeselektor, on bungalow we´ve been releasing 2 12inches with Dana singing (Meine Welt / Wat bessret vor).

....one of the best upcoming electro kids in 2009 - wait for the album - far cooler than Calvin Harris..!
