Cold Specks is Al Spx, a 23-year-old London-based Canadian singer who sounds a whole helluva lot older than her years. “Doom Soul” for the soul. But in a nice way.
One of the tracks from Noel Maurice’s upcoming mini-album “The Berlin Diaries. Introduction” – Release Party 8th May in King Kong Klub in Berlin.
After a sunny weekend not relaxing in the park like everybody else but labouring hard in and on a van I was aching and not really feeling in the best physical state to go to a concert. Despite cuts and aches I managed to drag myself onto the old bicycle and got down to Lido, not Lidl, just in time for the start of Del Castillo’s set.
On the way through the pitch black abandoned backyard, just as it seemed unclear whether this was the right way to the venue, or the right place to be mugged, there appeared a dim light at the end of the tunnel, the cosy entrance to Antje Oklesund.
What band would you choose to play at the end of the world? You could do worse than choose Texas instrumental alt-rock band This Will Destroy You.
There is something epic in the thoughtful and stately progression of their bare, melodic music. They have branded it ‘doomgaze’, which has just about the right associations of hypnotic soundscapes and haunting reverbs.
The Rusconi trio unleashed a powerful performance at HBC for a full room of music lovers. Rusconi have a dreamy soul-wrenching sound that will grasp your attention. This is not background music people!
Rusconi describe their sound as experimental pop. It is the evolution, the natural transition of a jazz trio who experiment and improvise to create new sounds. Using distortion, space echo, feedback, tape decks, bells, gongs and of course the grand piano, double bass and drums, Rusconi make magic.
Indieberlin interviews Rusconi
Indieberlin:please describe your music as if you would explain it to a child.
Indieberlin: Why do you do what you do?
Rusconi: Because it helps us and others understand us and others
Rusconi have made quite a name for themselves. The “Revolutionary Trio” say they play jazz for the rock generation. They do improvised, acoustic covers of Sonic Youth songs with piano, drums and stand-up bass.
People have said “the loudest acoustic band in the world.”(Main Post)
“This isn’t jazz, it’s revolution.” (Eclipsed)
Lovers of original improvised music are beside themselves. Rusconi continues to lay waste to all before them, astounding and delighting in equal measure. Indieberlin has 2×2 tickets for the show to give away, plus two free CDs!
Just write to us at email@example.com and tell us the name of their newly released album!
The wonderful Portico Quartet – feted in England as the “Radiohead of Jazz” – is an Indieband that plays jazz mixed with dubstep and other subpop styles – play TONIGHT in HBC and we’ve got two tickets to give away!

Music danced last Friday at the Quasimodo where the Berlin-formed outfit Black Heritage played to a full room. Their music incorporates a wide range of influences, from African rhythms to the wild roots of Jazz and Gospel choirs from America and the beautiful shrill ring of Arabic.
“Don´t mess with Texas”. So ähnlich könnte das Motto des heutigen Abends sein, denn “This Will Destroy You” aus San Marcos, Texas sind in der Stadt und spielen im Kreuzberger Lido. Leider mussten “Tides From Nebula” aus unbekannten Gründen absagen und so müssen die ca. 400 Postrockfans in der gut gefüllten Hallen erstmal die kurzfristige eingesprungene Vorband überstehen.
The Amsterdam Klezmer Band is one of the big favourites of the European Klezmer scene – always a great show – guaranteed many drunken people pumping their arms up and down and grinning idiotically! Go – dance – laugh – be free. With their Ukranian singer always in full force this is one of the best live shows anywhere they go.
And of course indieberlin has two copies of their album “Mokum” to give away here – just let us know the first name of the singer of the band and we#ll give the first two right answers an album to jump around at home to!
Yes! We’ve got 2×2 tickets to give away for Del Castillo in Lido on Sunday – the band who scooped the SXSW best album award as well as Best Latin Traditional Group and a host of other awards!

Es sind große Dinge geschnürt in kleine Pakete, so wie IAMDYNAMITE (ehemals „Mahoney“) mit lediglich einer Gitarre und Schlagzeug bewaffnet daherkommen. Aber sie packen erstaunlich clever Harmonien, tanzbare Gitarrenriffs und stampfende Drumssounds zusammen und hinterlassen eine explosive Mischung. Entstanden ist das Projekt aus der Band „The Raleigh“, bestehend aus zwei New Yorker Musikern plus Chris Martin (“C-Mart”) und Chris Phillips (“C²”). Nachdem die Band in diesen Jahren den Fuß in die Tür der Indie Rock-Szene in deren Heimatstadt Detroit bekommen und erste Erfahrungen gesammelt hat, verließen Chris und Chris das Projekt und formten mit ihrem eigenen, raubüberfallartigen Tanz-Indierock eine selbstständige, neue und energiegeladene Marke.
So, hi Lukas und Felix, die Genies von Lonski and Classen! Wir kommen ohne Shoo shoo und große Umschweife zu den berühmt-berüchtigten Interview-Fragen von indieberlin! Was meint ihr? Großartig. Los gehts:
On first impression, the Jezabels’ sound might situate itself within the epic power-pop-ballad genre of the ’80s, with their thundering rock drums, galloping rhythms, emotive vocals and guitar riffs, and keyboards adding to the rich visual soundscapes their music creates. There is also something in there from the ’00s, and something that’s hard to put a finger on… a likeness to some other band whose name escapes the memory.
