» Sleep Party People (DNK) (Shoegaze / Deam pop / Slowcore)
Sleep Party People - the bedroom project of Brian Batz - is like one of those fairy tale gems that keep radiating magical colours when it’s dark, that actually grow bigger and brighter when nighttime falls. It's something special and important and utterly beautiful.
With the aid of an old drum machine, a piano and a guitar, a unique dreamlike universe arises. With traces of My Bloody Valentine shoegaze, Cocteau Twins mystique and Flaming Lips idiosyncracy the result is hard to define. But who cares?
Sleep Party People’s eponymous debut album was received in home country Denmark with great accThelaim and called “one of the strangest and most beautiful released in a long, long time”, “a hazy, dreamy and wondrous debut album” by two of the largest newspapers in the country.
The album is a collection of songs including both piano lullabies, instrumental songs and what seems like pop hits from a strange, better dimension. It has a depth and a grandeur that harkens back to the big dark albums of circa 20 years ago by The Cure, My Bloody Valentine or Slowdive while remaining extremely modern.
Taking a bedroom project live is always tricky, so Brian Batz has gone all out: With an orchestra of 5 friends - all clad in bunny masks - the adventurous sound is enlarged and expanded live. The band is at times gentle and at times ferocious, and has - like the album - received 5 star reviews in Denmark. The five bunnies were also handpicked by The Antlers to follow them on their Scandinavian tour in march.
» Skiv Trio (Live electronics / Jazz / Rock)
Wires. A lot of wires. But at the end, blasting instruments : a
guitar, a saxophone, drums, machines …
Skiv could have been such a tweaky “turn-that-button” band, but their roots made of brass, skin and strings are pushing them beyond. On stage as well as on their new release, sinusoidal waves are linking drum breaks with
saxophone riffs. Feets are whacking on pedals and furious strings are filling any empty split second !
We are no more talking about a particular class of music. This is not jazz, not rock, neither electro : here we are listening to a pure new breeding of musical inspiration,sweat, breath and agility.
