ON TOUR AUTUMN 2024


NEW ON ROSTER
MARTHA ROSE
(UK, DE / Mansions & Millions)
An English multi-instrumentalist, Martha Rose has been active in Berlin’s diverse underground music scene for years. With Close to Close, she makes her debut at the Neukölln-based label Mansions & Millions, the artistic home of many of her longtime collaborators. Close to Close is an organic and introspective meditation, creating an almost dreamlike state of being that feels simultaneously fragile, mournful but also light and full of love. „It mourns closeness gone cold“, Martha Rose explains „and the quiet loss of unspoken fragile intimacy.“ Unsurprisingly, the record’s first ideas were conceived during „those lonely months of lockdown“, she remembers.
Availability: Europe/UK from 16 September to 31 October 2024.

THE DWARFS OF EAST AGOUZA
(EG/US/CA / Sub Rosa)
The Dwarfs Of East Agouza are a leading force of improvised musical excitement. Founded in Cairo, Egypt, by Maurice Louca (Alif, Bikya), Sam Shalabi (Land of Kush, Shalabi Effect) and Alan Bishop (Sun City Girls, The Invisible Hands), the trio developed an unique always recognizable sound, shapeshifting from free jazz and Krautrock to Arabic influences and Egyptian Shaabi music. New record 'High Tide In The Lowlands' was released via Sub Rosa in April 2023
Availability: Europe from 30 September to 30 November 2024.

OPTIC SINK
(US / Feel It Records)
Optic Sink is the post-punk / minimal wave project from Natalie Hoffmann (NOTS), Ben Bauermeister (Magic Kids) and Keith Cooper (Jack Oblivian & The Sheiks.) Their debut album was released on Goner Records in 2020, and their second album will be out on Feel It Records in Fall 2023. Between albums, the band expanded on their electronic meets post-punk sound, adding multi-instrumentalist Keith Cooper on bass and guitar, and bringing Natalie’s no-wave guitar approach back into her synth-based setup. The result is a voyage into dynamic sonic territory, with the band’s wide array of influences—from house to punk and beyond—combining to create something vibrant and unexpected.
Availability: Europe/UK from 30 October to 30 November 2024. Also available for fly-ins/special events.

ECHOES JAUMET-VILLEBRUN
(FR / Err Rec)

NEW ON ROSTER
SUBSTRAT
(FR)
New project by French producers Flore and Arandel. Let’s imagine the music has already started. The music, the sound, the noise. When the audience enters the venue, a guitar is already playing on its own standing in front of an amp, self-feeding a saturated drone with its own feedback. At some point, the lights suddenly go off. And in a blinding light, the PA is opened. In the speakers and in pitch dark, the feedback of the amplified guitar is processed through machines, the signal sent to modular synths, saturated by effects pedals, treated through various tape delays and long reverberations. It is then and only then that the musicians enter the stage. For 50 minutes, they will undo the music, erase the pile of sounds. As the sound fades out and as white smoke appears and pours on everything, the light returns conversely, very gradually and uniformly in this cloudy mass. Eventually, even the feedback dies out in this luminous white magma. Silence has been made. It is deafening.

ACID BABY JESUS
(GR / Fuzz Club / Slovenly)
Formed in Athens in 2009 the four-piece released two LPs on Slovenly, caught the attention of the press and played great shows in 2015 (including Dour, Eurosonic...). After touring Europe, US & Asia quite intensively the band finally got back to the studio. After a long three-year wait they’re now back with their third album ‘Lilac Days’on UK label Fuzz Club (home of Goat, The Black Angels, White Hills...). The album sees ABJ at their best; their frenetic garage-rock distilling a hazy mix of 60s Western psychedelic pop. After a short winter tour in march, they should be available for special events & festivals in the spring/ summer.
Available for fly-ins or special events / Europe.

Acid Mothers Temple entered a new phase with the arrival of singer Jyonson Tsu, who's progressive, theatrical solo shows on classical guitar and vocals, using his own invented language, have attracted great accolades and reviews in their own right, and have ushered in a new era for Acid Mothers Temple. The band's NEXT EUROPE TOUR IS SCHEDULED FOR SPRING 2024.
Generally available / Europe.

ARANDEL
(FR / In-Finé Music)
Inspired by his obsession with Wendy Carlos’ “Switched on Bach”, Arandel's new opus, ‘InBach vol. 1 & 2’, pays a poetic, infinitely respectful and innovative homage to JS Bach’s sacred workings. Born out of a proposal by the Musée de la Musique (Paris), the aim was to use the extraordinary but often hibernating historical instruments housed in the museum, mixed with vivid, contemporary music. In the immensity of Bach's oeuvre, in the company of his fellow wanderers (Areski Belkacem, Emmanuelle Parrenin, Barbara Carlotti, Gaspar Claus, Ben Shemie and more), within the constraints of historical instruments, emboldened by the delightful, sometimes technically dangerous friction between acoustics and electronics, Arandel walks a tightrope without a faux pas.

BRIAN CASE
(US / Hands in the Dark)
Brian Case (FACS, Disappears, 90 day men, Bambi Kino Duo…) just has released another stunning new solo album "Plays Paradise Artificial". This third album somehow manages to compile and condense the best bits of its predecessors, and the magnificent viridian, glacial universe developed by Case since the beginning of his solo ventures is brought to the forefront. The Chicago artist centers his elusive, dehumanized compositions on two simple, minimal elements. Using just vocals and synths, he has created a simultaneously modern and post-apocalyptic soundtrack, where music exists as the final traces of the footsteps of humanity.
Available for fly-ins or special events / Europe/UK.

DÄLEK
(US / Ipecac, Exile on Mainstream)
The pioneers of alt hiphop will be on tour in 2022 in support of their new release 'Precipice' (Ipecac Recordings), the culmination of three years of work. Brooks, Manteca and longtime associate Joshua Booth sculpted ten songs that capture the band’s classic sound, they also recruited Adam Jones of Tool on the epic “A Heretic’s Inheritance”, featuring Jones’ signature guitar sound blended into Dälek’s distinctive soundscape.

ETIENNE JAUMET
(FR / Versatile)
Etienne Jaumet is the name behind the legendary French band Zombie Zombie, The Married Monk, The Tribute to La Monte Young (with Spacemen Three's Sonic Boom), to name just few of the bands he's played with. He also played sax with James Holden live band. When his henchman (Cosmic Neman) is not around beating on the drums for the band-beyond-the-grave, Zombie Zombie, Etienne Jaumet takes control of a spacecraft that only he can manage, cruising outer space on a quest for a deeper sound. As a solo performer, he delves into a box of inspirations drawn from horror movie soundtracks, jazz, French 1970s avant-garde, vintage italo, kosmische, library music and psychedelia, concocting a sound that is sensuous, intoxicating. Breathtaking in its imagination and cinematic scope, Jaumet's live show which takes in saxophone and a vast array of vintage keyboards and synthesizers is essential viewing. 'Night Music", his first CD on Versatile Records (2009) was produced by Carl Craig. "La Visite", his second album was out in 2014. In 2018 Etienne had a new album on Versatile Records with covers of jazz classics: Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Duke Elington, Art Ensemble of Chicago… again played with his signatures analog synths, drum machine and alto sax.

FAUST IV LIVE!
(DE / Bureau B)

"in Dec. 2019 at the Lieblingsplatte Festival in Düsseldorf, Jean-Hervé Péron (Faust) together with Amaury Cambuzat (Faust, Ulan Bator), Pierre Chevalier (Faust, Present), Jeanne-Marie Varain (Faust, Ernsthafte Angelegenheiten) and their special guests Antonia Mallach, Raphaël Meulemans, Clément Meulemans, Didier Demeestere on strings, winds and percussions will present this project during an extensive tour in Autumn 2021. The cult album Faust IV was the fourth studio album released by the German krautrock group in 1973. Listed in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die, where it is referred to as a "krautrock classic", Faust IV includes the drone-based long instrumental Krautrock as opener, and seminal songs such as Jennifer and The Sad Skinhead. Faust IV Live ! captures the strange magic that then and now defines Faust as an entity unto themselves.

GOAT
(JP / Morphine records)
Guitar, saxophone, bass and drums. Disregarding the musical scale of instruments as much as possible, the band creates songs that consist of noise and muted sounds that produce a techno energy. The trance and fatigue brought about from relentless repetition and the melody-like sounds that comprise harmonics outside the twelve-tone are both urban and tribal at the same time. A LIVE MUST SEE!
Available for fly-ins or special events / Germany.

GUIDO MOEBIUS
(DE / Autopilot)
In his live sets Möbius creates delicate links between experimentation, handmade techno, funk, polyrhythmic patterns, acid, weird noises and gospel music. Methodically prepared passages and improvisation combine into a coherent set, and Möbius deals with the energy on the fly. Failures and restarts are constant companions and sources of inspiration. At times, Möbius piles up loops of vocal-, trumpet- or guitar-sounds into a mighty drone whose gravity is interrupted abruptly by a driving beat or a gospel choir. It’s different every time. Guido Möbius’ new album “A Million Magnets” will be out in May 2022.
Generally available / EU/UK.

MIKE COOPER
(UK / Room40 records)
"Venerable virtuoso guitarist Mike Cooper evokes rich imagery and narrative through simple means - lap steel guitar, voice, FX, video and imagination - Now 81 years old - his music sounds utterly contemporary, situated somewhere between Takoma, Exotica, 4th World and Ambient musics; always with a minimal, evocative signature that honestly sounds quite unlike anything or anyone you’ll have heard before. Cooper is one of the most inspirational and consistently brilliant artists working on the scene today.- ”The Icon of post everything music” (Lawrence English-Room40)

Although Panda Bear and Sonic Boom are no strangers to each other’s music, RESET marks their first collaborative release. When Sonic Boom pitched an idea to take their working relationship to the next level, he reckoned Panda Bear might reject the proposition outright—in the nine gloriously, feverishly hook-bound tracks of Reset, though, you can hear exactly how much he loved the prospect. Sharing equal billing for the first time, Panda Bear and Sonic Boom achieve with RESET an intoxicating mind meld over a sample-heavy tribute to 1960s pop.

RHYS CHATHAM
(US / Foom)
Rhys Chatham is a composer, guitarist, trumpet player and flutist from Manhattan, currently living in Paris, who altered the DNA of rock and created a new type of urban music by fusing the overtone-drenched minimalism of the early 60s with the relentless, elemental fury of the Ramones — the textural intricacies of the avant-garde colliding with the visceral punch of electric guitar-slinging punk rock. Starting with Guitar Trio in the 1970s and culminating with A Crimson Grail for 200 electric guitars in 2009, Chatham has been working for over 30 years to make use of armies of electric guitars in special tunings to merge the extended-time music of the sixties and seventies with serious hard rock. Chatham’s instrumentation ranges from the seminal composition composed in 1977 entitled Guitar Trio for 3 electric guitars, electric bass and drums, to the epoch evening-length work for 100 electric guitars, An Angel Moves Too Fast to See, composed in 1989… all the way to Chatham’s recent composition for 200 electric guitars, Crimson Grail, which was commissioned by the City of Paris for La Nuit Blanche Festival in 2005. A completely new version of the piece was commissioned by the Lincoln Center Outdoor Summer Festival in 2009. What does a composer do after mounting many performances with forces of 100-200 electric guitars? The composer gets back to basics, at least that’s what Rhys does! Along with the G100 and G3 programs, Chatham is currently offering a solo program, an evening length work with the composer performing himself on electric guitar, trumpets and bass alto and C flutes.

TACHYCARDIE
(France / Un je-ne-sais-quoi)
Tachycardie (drummer for Pneu, La Colonie de Vacances, F.U.T.U.R.OS.C.O.P.E. …) explores on his last LP a field between contemporary music, minimalism and sound art. Sound hypnosis, body endurance and mutant percussion. At the same time exploring the new possibilities offered by the orchestral writing and physical surpassing of his drummer's body, Tachycardie is a reflexive work on the possibilities of solo music which leaves a field of expression to the collaborations that sit at its creation. Therefore, Tachycardie will play live solo, in group with invited musicians, or even in the form of autonomous installations.
