They always play on the verge of different styles, they survived after Courtney Love visited their front-woman, survived the fall of the Berlin Wall, the madness of the music industry and the frenzy of hundreds of thousands of Metallica fans. And after all, they are responsible for Nirvana and Limp Bizkit.
Welcome to the outlandish world of Faith No More, which often walked ahead of time. Their partly prophetic play without borders continues – their first album has been released since 1997 and the group looks back at their past.
18+ Attention! Profanity Continue reading
Not so long ago, stepping out of teens, in 2013 Wolf Alice with a handful of songs turned the music world upside down. While the label “grunge” stuck to them from the very beginning, on their debut album “My Love Is Cool” they finally blurred the boundaries between genres.
Michaela Gladovich met with vocalist Ellie Rousell and drummer Joel Emey in Berlin and interviewed.
Another young British indie band, from which, after a couple of EPs, all music critics just write boiling water. Magazines and blogs show off their accolades, the BBC in 2013 called Wolf Alice “the most-write-about-blogging group.” A year later, they received the “Best New Artist” award at the UK Festival Awards.

She was named the new greatest UK songwriter: critics describe Soak as a tomboy girl from Northern Ireland with a skateboard, guitar behind her and touching songs in the arsenal.
But what is beyond the hype? A lot of things, says journalist Ayda Bagkherneyad.
Nobody goes around the bush, talking about her age. Bridi Monds-Watson, better known as Soak, first picked up the guitar at the age of 13, played her first concert at 15, and in 2012, when she turned 16, released her debut EP on a label owned by Chvrches. Now, at almost 18 years old, she is releasing her first album and showing that even with the label “singer-singer” that does not cause anything other than yawning, one can be dull. And the fact that adulthood and maturity is overrated, because some people Continue reading
Autumn is the darkest, wettest, depressing time of the year when each of us goes deep into ourselves. And although the New Year and the January holidays, which will give us a little respite, are just around the corner, like dawn in the dark. But even these holidays will pass and be erased from memory, and the next summer will seem infinitely distant. Among these bright flashes, we exist – always weighed down and pitying ourselves.
And why try to look at everything with different eyes? No, it’s better to drown in this despair … And to drown together with the darkest and most depressed musicians, where without music. After all, music paints this world of colors and emotions, and at the same time our world is a darker, gloomy sinister. So Continue reading
Kevin Parker got sick. Enough peace-loving hippie music! The sound is louder! This is what he says about Tame Impala’s new album “Currents”, released in July 2015.
In an interview with Yulia Maner, the frontman talks about his hangover, why he likes to fool fans and why he doesn’t care if his music is bought or not.
Fun fact: Kevin Parker, the spiritual father and frontman of the Australian band Tame Impala, best falls asleep to the sound of a knock on the keyboard. If he was sitting next to me now, then the guy would most likely have already chopped off. But alas, he is not nearby, but in a country of unlimited possibilities, somewhere between Minneapolis and New York. These 5 weeks in the USA are just the first Continue reading
