FIBEL, Kulturbrauerei Berlin, 21.12.2018

FIBEL, Kulturbrauerei Berlin, 21.12.18

Optically jumped straight out of the trendy volcano Mitte, musically somewhere between The Cure and Rio Reiser and atmospheric like a hot bath in a tub full of melancholy profundity. Whatever the Spotify Algorhythm, in the midst of Gangsterrap and Deep House, suddenly flushed FIBEL with “Commissar” on my ears – I kiss his eyes. For FIBELS are my best discovery 2018.

Their concert on 21.12. in the Kulturbrauerei in Berlin formed the logical conclusion of my year and at the same Read More

Interview with Leoniden about “Again” – Part 2!

Leoniden Interview 2018

The title of Germany’s most diligent and perfectionist band is no longer needed Since the Leonids from Kiel came into the field of view of the national indie scene in 2017 – there is hardly any need for discussion about the fact that the five members are putting everything into their bands right down to the last detail and discussing every last detail in their own planning. There are 140 shows in two years, regardless of the scale, of which you always have your own lighting and sound engineer, Read More

Annual Review 2018: Marie

Annual Review Marie 2018

The year 2018 has somehow gone by and was fortunately a year in which I was able to discover a lot of new music for myself , My absolute highlight of the year was definitely KAOS from the blackout issues. Due to their sophisticated alternative rock sound, the record has taken me even more than the debut album before and accompanied me throughout the year. In addition, Camp Cope on “The Opener” probably the best bass riff of the year filed and the concert in the barracks in Münster was absolutely Read More

Snow Patrol are back!

For seven years, Snow Patrol have taken their time to find a worthy successor to their award-winning sixth studio album Fallen Empires. It was released into the world this spring, with the title “Wildness”. On album number seven, Snow Patrol re-invents, yet remaining true to their style, showing, above all, that their music has matured over time. Especially the lyrics of the songs have a lot more seriousness, but they have succeeded from beginning to end.

In keeping with the album, Read More

96s.info Newcomer 2019

Which newcomers should you not miss?

Amilli (#Pop)

Turbostaat – Nachtbrot

Turbostaat - Nachtbrot

Live albums can be quite a tricky box. Sometimes too much in the lack of post-production, sometimes a rather detuned version of the studio recordings, there is an infinite list of live recordings that can be heard in principle, but otherwise can not replace a live concert. Anyone who was already able to admire the Northern Lights Turbostaat live, should be aware that one of the highlights is the intensive concerts of the indie punks: an extremely lyrical audience. “Nachtbrot” is the name Read More

Bastille come to Germany for six concerts!

With their debut album “Bad Blood” and the hits “Flaws” and “Pompeii” they made their breakthrough in 2013, now Once again they come to Germany for a few concerts. The talk is of course by the indie band Bastille, which will play a total of six shows here in February and March. After their two successful albums, things got a bit quieter for the British, recently they returned as feature guest of Marshmello in the song “Happier” and announced their European tour, including concerts in Austria, Read More

The Struts – Young & Dangerous

The Struts is the all-around band package. Visually, the British could have sprung from the 80s and that frontman Luke Spiller with his eccentric appearance strongly reminiscent of Freddie Mercury, sets the whole of course still on the crown. And then this music! Songs that sound as if they’ve been around for ages, without sounding dusty – with the unconditional goal of inviting you to dance. Instant Hits in progress, already 5 years ago with “Could Have Been Me” until the latest big hit Read More

Annual Review 2018: Julia

Annual Review Julia 2018

2018 was an incredibly fast-paced year, with many negative surprises in the world. All the more so because the musical world has become a wonderful multi-layered and exciting year for me personally. As a big fan of lists, the heaviest task of all is to bring the great variety of great albums, concerts, songs and newcomers under one roof – certainly some highlights are still missing.

The strongest albums:

Interview with KYTES about “Frisbee”

For the last 1.5 years it was pretty quiet around the Munich indie pop band KYTES. We met with them before their tour start in Cologne and asked what they have been doing lately and what we can hope for from the EP “Frisbee”, which will be released in January.

96s.info: How are you?

Tim: Very well. We were very busy right now. Arrive here, quickly soundcheck, build everything, briefly eat something, then interview. But we have not Read More

The State – Bubble Gum

The State - Bubble Gum

Chewing gum. These are those sticky chewing gums that, after just a few minutes, already lose a great deal of their flavor, contain a lot of sugar in their silage and basically consist mainly of chemical plastics. If one were looking for a product that would bring the capitalist consumer and disposable society to the point exactly – one would have already found the unnecessary chewing fun. “Bubble Gum” is also the name of the sixth studio album by the Dutch art rock band De Staat. Although Read More

Picture Book – mea culpa

Picture Book - mea culpa

The last spark of hope does not seem quite extinct yet – a little light keeps alive the flickering fire of German-speaking pop culture , The creative development of local pop music seems to have come to a standstill in recent years. Only very few artists bring fresh wind. One of the most influential hopefuls comes just from the neighboring country of Austria. Since their third longplayer “Schick Schock”, the sound of the indie band Bilderbuch is always on the move and always at least one Read More

Interview with Leoniden about “Again” – Part 1!

Leoniden Interview Again 2018 by ConstantinTimm

“Leonids? Never heard of! “- so many music-loving people reacted at the beginning of last year, when the little-minded early ghosts reported joyfully about their new sweetheart. No wonder – at that time, the indie band, which is now on everyone’s lips and is served by talk show to talk show, not even released their debut album. Towards the end of the following year 2018 you can now draw a completely different balance. Hardly any German music act is currently being celebrated, praised and Read More

theAngelcy – nodyssey

Being on tour means not getting anywhere. From hotel room to hotel room, from venue to venue, from city to city. If bands keep that rhythm for a long time, a tour quickly becomes a never-ending journey, an odyssey. Red Bar Or, founder of the band theAngelcy, describes exactly this very own form of being on the road as Nodyssey, which immediately serves as title for the second album of the collective. The band has formed in Israel, a country of which one hardly notices anything in culturally Read More

Wolf Alice, Building 9 Cologne, 13.12.2018

2018 is the year in which the relevance of rock music was finally buried for the masses. But just in this time of EDM and Trap, a British alternative band wins the Mercury Prize for the best album of 2017. In the UK, the band fills impressively large halls, many critics agree – they see one of the most extraordinary Acts of the last years. But what sets Wolf Alice apart from the great pabulum of the rock world? In the last moves of their tour to that same album, the band also paid a visit Read More

Leoniden, Druckluft Oberhausen, 06.12.2018

The hypes about a band is always such a thing. At first, many people get carried away, the public interest has quickly peaked and as fast as the fans came, they are also gone and hardly anyone is interested in the band that was just around the corner. Not so with the Leonids: After the interest in the Kiel after their debut album at the beginning of last year rose rocket-like and their fan base continued to grow, is also almost two years and another record later, no end to the euphoria Read More

Turbostaat, Weltkunstzimmer Düsseldorf, 14.12.2018

Turbostaat, Weltkunstzimmer Düsseldorf, 14.12.2018

The German-Punk is already a special scene. With so many generic standard Schrammel groups visiting the same AZs and youth centers across the country, there are few bands that work well away from power chords and brisk quavers, as well as the closeness and intimacy of punk concerts revive. A band often criticized by punkish punk fanatics for their untrue streak and progressiveness, undeniably one of the best live acts in the genre, is Turbostaat from Flensburg. For the past 20 years, the Read More

Prada Meinhoff, Blue Shell Cologne, 17.12.2018 (+ photo gallery)

Prada Meinhoff are unique in every way. And that must already mean something in the 21st century and in the decade of music streaming. The music market is flooded with acts, a terrific band chasing the next one. All the better is the feeling to think “Wait, I have not heard that yet!” That’s what happened to me last year, when I was allowed to experience Prada Meinhoff in the supporting program of billions. A duo, a man on the bass and a singer who turned the hall upside down within a very Read More

Editors, Warsteiner Music Hall, 18.11.2018

Music connects. Across all borders. That’s why so many people are passionate about music in every way, which is why concerts in the digital age are more in demand than ever. This indescribable power makes it easy to forget that there are still people behind the notes, bars and melodies – because music is somehow bigger than the producers behind the instruments. A perfect example: the editors.

On their tour of the current album “Violence”, the British band accompanies the Icelandic Read More

Prada Meinhoff – Stress

It’s been almost a year since I named Prada Meinhoff as my great bearer of hope for 2018. Since then, the electro-punk-rock-pop duo has been playing countless support slots for different bands like The Garden or INVSN and released an impressive debut album (our review here). Of course, that’s not all for such a tireless band – in addition to touring René Riewer and Chrissi Nichols have just recorded another EP. And instead of building on proven qualities, “stress” even goes one step further! Read More
