Dem Cover und der Uhrzeit nach Zeit zum Zähneputzen! Melancholischer Bedroom Pop auf der indie fEElz EP von Julia Rakel:

The EP is the result of hours of music making in the lonesome bedroom. Julia works at the well-known Malmö studio Tambourine and her credits include sound design and music for the award-winning short film Plankton. With her expertise as a producer she’s refined her stripped-down sketches to a daydreaming beautiful soundscape that develops with every listen. This, put together with Julia’s individual vocals and often ironic lyrics, create a intimate and memorable sound that there will be plenty more of during the upcoming months.

Damit ihr morgen nach soviel Melancholie fresh aus dem Bett und gut in den Tag kommt, empfehle ich den Rama Lama Records Labelkollegen Chez Ali mit seiner, ja, Buenas Noches Club EP:

Zum Jahreswechsel entdeckt man dann doch immer noch ein Album, das es quasi in letzter Minute in die persönliche Jahresbestenliste schaffen würde, wenn man eine schreiben würde …

Helado Negros Album This Is How You Smile ist in einigen 2019er-Listen zu finden.
Robert Lange zum Entstehungsprozess:

It was this regimen. I rented my friend’s studio down the street, in Flatbush, Brooklyn, where I’d record until 4 in the afternoon. Then I would come home and eat some food, hang with my wife, Kristi, then take the bus to another friend’s studio in Dumbo and work until midnight, editing what I had recorded that day. It was great, but also isolating and really hard, because you get in touch with a lot of feelings when you’re by yourself. I know that sounds really corny. But I was writing a lot on piano and it was extremely emotional. When I’ve written lyrics or melodies before, I’ve never cried, and I was crying.

Imagining What to Do passt dann auch perfekt zur Jahreszeit:

It’s an ode to New York in the wintertime—a song about snuggling up with somebody and addressing the heaviness and the darkness on a psychological and emotional level. You’re wrapped up in a coat, wrapped up in your mind, wrapped up by the heat in your apartment, wrapped up by a building. There’s so many layers in New York, and when winter comes, everything is that much more compressed. That song is finding the place where you can just let go in your mind and know that shit’ll get better.

The two of us draw smiles
Laughing, half a whistling slowly
We wait softly
Looking for the sun to come back tomorrow
I’ll see you waiting for the glow again

Sehr schön die Live-Aufnahme im KCRW-Studio:

Wer meint Adron im Hintergrund zu hören, kann nachgucken und hat Recht:

All I Want for Christmas … ist neue Weihnachtsmusik? Die gibt es wie immer im Christmas Underground. Alte Weihnachtsmusik gibt es im wohlsortierten Kulturklubbenarchiv …

Am schönsten dann, wenn das Alte und das Neue sich verknüpfen … zum Beispiel mit Jenny Owen Youngs (via … na klar Christmas Underground), bekannt von Like a Gift from God or Whatever mit Chris Farren – wer sich nicht erinnert … zum Archiv und zu Chris Farren hier entlang:

Jedenfalls, Jenny Owen Youngs mit Maybe Next Year und das ist ja irgendwie auch ein guter Vorsatz.

when i was kid it was boxes and bows
crossing my fingers wishing for snow
honestly i don’t know where time goes

Auf Twitter schrieb @annalist von der Gudrun-Gut-Playliste in der neuen Vogue, bei sTia blieb ich in den 15-Sekunden-Spotify-Samples hängen … Sleepers, Poets, Scientists?

Wake-up! Sleepers Poets Scientists!


Imagine the Solvay Conference 1927 but only Madame Curies and dressed in Lucy McKenzie’s / Beka Lipscombe’s work-coats.


From Buffy to Torchwood to Poe to Whitman to Sanctuary to The Event. To Bus to Railway to Truck to Car.


Imagine Clarice Lispector, Anna Akhmatova, Lilya Brik, Hilma Af Klint, Eileen Myles, Susans’ Howe and Wheeler, but all the particles replaced by waves replaced by particles.

Sleepers Poets Scientists showcases works by Natalie Beridze’s students at the CES Creative Education Studio, a privately operated school for design, audio, and video in Tbilisi.

Ein gutes Jahr alt:

Den Auftritt in Berlin natürlich knapp verpasst:

Aber einen Live-Auftritt gibt es auf YouTube:

Und, weil Weihnachten und so, sTias Album *Run Run” zum pay-what-you-want-Preis:
