A few months ago, in the context of the Immergut Festival, I got to see German Pianist Hauschka (Volker Bertelmann) live. He doesn’t just play the piano, he imitates an entire band by adding various items onto his piano – from ping pong balls to tic tac boxes. In the following video, he’s explaining how and what he does to create his sound:

Daughter is another one of these musicians that just lull you in with a sweet melancholy.

A little while ago I had the opportunity to see Feist live again. Hell, it was amazing, and I can only recommend everyone to go to a Feist gig, if she’s playing nearby (or even a little further away).

The past year seems to have been a busy year for the Weilheim scene around the members of The Notwist. Their collaboration with Themselves of Anticon fame under the moniker 13&God will be releasing a new album this year, Martin Gretschmann revived his own band Console and released Herself last autumn. In the meantime the Acher brothers have been busy as well, with their bandmates of Tied & Tickled Trio (apparently named after a Japanese sex game) and collaborated with the drummer Billy Hart. The fruits of their work are called La Place Demon and will be released on April 1st, 2011. However, their fusion of Dub and Jazz is far from being a lame April fool’s joke, and it is another album to look forward to this year.

Ladies and gentlemen, if your favourite rapper doesn’t rap fast, it is because he can’t.
Dose One of Themselves can rap fast, and this is what he demonstrated with Jel’s support on July 23, at the Glasgow Stereo. A video, so you can hear for yourself and some pictures from the event, including the support band,
whose name I unfortunately forgot Dam Mantle.
