This scene inspired us to make The Don’t Try This at Home issue. Cause isn’t trying things at home the very essence of exploring exciting new things? We all need to start somewhere, right?

Death Grips www.thirdworlds.net

Death Grips just left an unattended piece of musical luggage in a public area and we don’t really know who to contact, so explosive is this stuff. The new Californian avant-hip hop project by Flatlander and Zach Hill has detonated its debut mixtape Ex-Military with a bangful of lyrics shouted through gritted teeth and excruciatingly loud samples with the first track kicking off with a Charles Manson interview clip. This is not for the faint-hearted. Download the mixtape for free on their website.

Flamingods

flamingods.bandcamp.com Flamingods are a jolly ukulele-strumming bunch from London. Headed by Kamal Rasool, who has a thing for collecting instruments from faraway lands, the band make music that jitters and jolts like a tribal rain dance. Their latest album Sun sounds like a mass exodus of toucans and tigers, interspersed with bird calls and popping percussion. And apart from being cheery, surprising and just plain old nice, Flamingods give their music away for free.

DJ Yo-Yo Dieting

Portlander Pat Maher’s mixes sound like a police van getting smashed up by a bunch of angry youths. It’s unacceptable, yet you can’t stop listening to these warped, damaged, in turns slowed-down and accelerPage 12 12

ated gangsta rap samples. Frankly, you can’t jog to this stuff but who needs exercise when you can yo-yo diet? No website I’m afraid, time to rev up those search engines.

Bong Rodent

bongrodent.bandcamp.com

Searching for this dude from Virginia sent me over to pet-health.org (you should check it out if your pet critter has a drug addiction by the way). I’m afraid that you might tear this column up in rage if I mention chillwave again, but let me assure you that Bong Rodent, apart from having the best moniker, like, ever, puts a very original spin on the whole chillwave/hip hop sampling aesthetic. Forget the hazy, dreamy soundscapes of yesteryear, pep and rhythm flow from this young man’s hands. Download all his stuff for free and email him to say ‘<3’.

Tense Men

tensemen.tumblr.com Tense Men is the new music child of Sauna Youth’s Rich Phoenix and Cold Pumas’ Ollie Fisher. Layering stuttering drum beats, cresting guitars and subdued vocals, these guys create winding roads of intense musical heat. If any visual metaphor must be applied to this band: it’s like watching the rope slowly split during a tug-o-war between two sweaty, fierce men. Check out their new cassette release on Cazenove Tapes. Page Page 13

Sealings

awesomeghost.tumblr.com British duo Sealings live in a Technicolor-haunted house of noisy racket. Hell, one of their videos is a clip from Grease, overridden by a fuzzy distorted mess of thumping guitars and frazzled vocals. And any form of taunting John Travolta is a sign of excellence, I believe. These guys are pretty internet-hyperactive, so check out their site and get your hands on a load of mpfrees and a number of really excellent videos.

Blanck Mass

blanckmass.bandcamp.com

Fuck Buttons’ Benjamin John Power has a new solo project on the block. Listening to Blanck Mass is like putting your ear up to a snowy television set as a kid and listening intently to the static electricity nibbling on your cheek. Devoid of rhythm, the music surges and pulsates with beautiful ease as Power layers organ, synth and power drone to create an intergalactic map of sound. You might have to attempt to listen to his debut album a few times. It’s totally worth it though.

Anguish Sandwich

anguishsandwichcamp.bandcamp.com This boy-girl-boy sandwich from Northampton likes to keep it simple. The drums are bashed without much fuss and the bass player likes to sit cross-legged on the floor when they perform. Lyrics are shouted without much ado, and these kids are brutally honest and cheeky at times. Check out their demo No More Cows: I think you’ll like it. Sandwiches are good, everyone likes sandwiches.

Don’t Try This at Home

Besides playing in futuristic synth pop duo Ford & Lopatin, Joel Ford and Daniel Lopatin also used to share a small, shitty apartment in Bushwick, Brooklyn. We talked to Daniel Lopatin to find out just what was cooking in their windowless kitchen. ‘Don’t be fooled by the LG fridge, it’s a piece of shit.’ Words by Bas Morsch. Photos by David Black

Please tell us a bit about the house - if you would need to sell it, how would you describe it in an ad? Small, shitty apartment in Bushwick with no windows in the kitchen. Runs hot. Cool backyard. Joel grew vegetables there. Security camera view accessible through internet. Don’t be fooled by the LG fridge, it’s a piece of shit. Tell me a bit about the decoration… is it stylish, minimal, retro, lost-and-found, totally tasteless? Lost and ditched. RIP Bushwick. What is your favourite piece of furniture, and why? An awkwardly heavy patriotic metal chair, ass-shaped seat mold. Page 16

What’s up on the walls? A poster of Dan Marjerle, aka THUNDER DAN! How big of a part did synthesizers play in your home? Is it ‘everywhere I look I see a Juno’? No, we basically had like five to seven synths between the two of us. Most of them were prosumer Japanese polysynths from the ’80s. On a scale of 1 to 10, how messy was it? 3 - We’re not that messy. Was your house a home? No, we ditched that spot hard. We both have RVs that we leave parked outside of the Mexican Summer headquarters. Occasionally our boss will let us use the shower there.

But seriously now… Was it essential for your music that you lived together? It was essential because it motivated us to make music together. On a scale of 1 to 10, how much noise did you make in the house? Not that much. ESPN is the loudest thing that happened in our then-apartment. And how often did you make that noise?

Rainbow Arabia

Band mates and husband and wife Danny and Tiffany Preston of ethno-electro band Rainbow Arabia live together in a beautiful old American Craftsman Style house in Echo park on the green slopes of Los Angeles. Turns out they are a pretty normal couple. Time to talk dogs, decoration, fruit juice and studio dynamics. Words by Bas Morsch. Photos by Ye Rin Mok

Bas: Tell me about your house. Danny: Our house is old and has lots of personality. It’s located in Echo Park; the front window looks out to the downtown skyline. The back looks into our backyard that is full of bamboo and trees, and onto some radio towers on the hillside over the canyon. This is exactly what I had in mind. The combination of modern and earthy. Ur-

banity and bamboo… beats and ethnic rhythms... Pro Tools and pig skin… It’s more like giant dogs, Ableton and Casios. Giant dogs? We love dogs. Right now we have an Irish Wolfhound/Briard mix and a Bouvier des Flandres. There’s a Basset Hound buried in the backyard. I am quite green when it comes to dogs Page 21

‘We love dogs. right now we have a Irish Wolfhound/Briard mix and a Bouvier des Flandres. I have a Basset hound buried in my backyard.’ but they sound impressive. So sorry about the Basset though. Is it legal to bury a dog in your backyard? No... it’s not legal. Here’s a little story. This was the first dog I had on my own. His name was Huddie Ledbetter. Tiff and I were out of town while my best friend was watching him. He was having some health issues. He had a glass eye and was going blind in the other. He ended up passing while away at my friend’s house. All my friends knew Huddie and they all went over to my friend’s house. They wrapped him in a blanket and put him in a pickup truck, then drove to my house with an escort of cars following. They buried a hole and had a service for him, playing Leadbelly and drinking whiskey. Wish I could have been there, but it does sound like a good way to see him off. That is a nice story. Moving. It really shows how big a role he played in your life. People with dogs are more stuck to the house than people without dogs. Is that why you make music that refers Page 22

to cultures and countries all over the globe... do you travel without moving? Not sure if that’s a reason why we make our music. We have always been fans of all music and both of us love to travel. Luckily we have lots of friends that house-sit for us, so we can leave town a lot. How much time do you spend away from home normally? This year we will be gone for about four months. You must miss Murphy and Django at these times. (Is it after Django Reinhardt and Eddie Murphy, by the way?) Yes, we do. You’re right about Django, but Murphy is named after Peter Murphy (the lead singer of Bauhaus). He is very goth. How can a dog be goth? It’s his haircut. He’s got bangs that cover one eye. Wow! Is that natural or groomed? I’ve always been fascinated by pet barbers. He has the bangs naturally, but the groomer makes the sweep. Just out of curiosity - how much does it

cost to make a dog bang sweep? It’s about 70 bucks for the full clean and groom. We only have it done every once in a while. They have to be groomed eventually or their hair will get really long. That’s one of those things you don’t think about when you don’t have a dog. And what makes Django Django? Django is more like a football player, while Murph is a soft, gentle guy. They are best friends. Who says jocks and artists can’t be besties? What a perfect world you live in! How does your wife fit into that perfect world? Living in a husband-and-wife domestic environment myself, I feel pretty comfortable asking this question - any fights lately? It can be difficult... but most fights are about music. We have our studio downstairs. So, tensions can arise downstairs in the studio and then everything goes back to normal when we go back upstairs. Thanks for being so honest. What do you fight about in the studio? Stupid stuff. I’d rather not go into detail. Musical choices and decisions are never stupid. They are essential... so that’s why you fight? Yeah, I guess. But I think there

Features

are deeper reasons behind those stupid things. Should I ask deeper? I think it would be better for both of us to be present rather than me speaking for the two of us. You’re are right... is Tiffany home? (chuckles) The dogs help to ease the tension, I assume. The sentence ‘I’m gonna walk the dog’ must be a common one. Yes they do. Thank god. Just one more question about studio dynamics - if I’d ask you ‘What shouldn’t you try at home?’, would your answer be ‘making a record’? There’s still magic in making a record at home. But if you want to go with that as an interesting answer for the magazine, we can say that. We could. But seriously, it sounds intense to make a record at home. But intense is close to magic. Definitely. How do you combine it with homely activities such as cooking dinner? We usually have a break to cook dinner. We also make fresh juice every day. It’s pretty routine. Who cooks? Together? We take turns. We both have our specialties. Like what? Page 27

Features

Don’t Try This at Home

Tiffany makes a mean salmon with dill cream sauce and I’m an expert at making fresh hummus. So actually, you are quite a normal LA couple living in a good house with two dogs. You cook salmon in dill cream sauce and you drink a daily fresh fruit juice… How does that relate to the kind of music you make? It doesn’t... our music comes from the clash of multiple influences from our backgrounds. I have a background of blues, new wave, post-punk, reggae, African, all kinds of world music. And Tiff has a background of metal, goth, classic rock, punk rock. The dynamics of the differences of our background make this complex recipe of mixed genrefication. I’ve seen somebody calling your music ‘fourth-world music’, as opposed to the easier classification of world music. What are your thoughts on that? I think the fourth-world pop description is accurate. It just kinda explains this new movement of electronic music that is influenced by the whole world. Isn’t that also really how things work these days - being connected and blending everything into a personal and almost self-indulgent kind of art? In a way the people in the music scene these days are all hippies with a Macbook in Page 28

the giant digital comfort zone. Geographical location, or where your home is, is not so important anymore. Yet according to your answers - dogs, bamboo, yard, old furniture, juice... it is.Do you and Tiff like to sit on the couch watching TV and eating a TV dinner in sweat pants? We like to, but we don’t have the time to. I still like to just chill and play records. I used to be a big record collector and have lots of music to listen to that’s not on a Macbook. I wish it was all on my Macbook, though! Vinyl is hard to digitise. But maybe you shouldn’t anyway. Better put the needle in the groove and pour a glass of wine. I agree. So, what record are you gonna play when you get home from work? Lately, I have been pulling some old Art of Noise records out. No wine tonight though, but a beet-carrotginger-apple juice. And who’s cooking? Not sure what’s on the menu tonight. Actually, I have to run to the store. Maybe roast up a chicken. Enjoy all that! Nice and homely. Rainbow Arabia live dates: 12/09 - L’Escalier, Luik; 13/09 - Incubate, Tilburg; 17/09 - Leffingeleuren Festival, Leffinge (Middelkerke)

Tweak Bird

We sent a short multiple choice questionnaire to Caleb, one of the two brothers that make up Illinois band Tweak Bird, discussing brotherly dynamics and why you should listen to their heavy yet joyous space and fuzz-fused ditties. Words by Brenda Bosma. Photos by Brett Haley

1. About sibling pranks: Have you ever ‘tweaked’ your brother while he was asleep as brothers and sisters do? A I tweak him every day... while he’s awake! B No, are you kidding me? To tweak someone is urban slang for something involving someone’s buttocks, a cup of chocolate sprinkles and a small pet. C He is not my brother. We made the whole kinship up in hope of White Stripes fans hopping over to us. D Other, namely: Well, if I ever ‘tweaked’ my brother it was defi-

nitely because he ‘tweaked’ me first. I am not an instigator. We hardly ever ‘tweak’ any more after the accident... we’ve moved apart in respect of each other’s giant egos. 2. How does Ashton manage to simultaneously play the drums, keyboard, sing, keep his glasses on and be all-round awesome? A In his mind he’s the chosen one. B He actually also plays my guitar on stage, that’s why I wear this massive native Indian head dress to cover that up. C Like Roger Daltry, he eats a lot of Heinz Oven Baked Beans with Page 33

Features

Don’t Try This at Home

Tomato Sauce, which contain serious amounts of iron. D Other, namely: Ashton practices being awesome two hours a day. Basically, he always wants more in the music and performance, so if I don’t give it to him, he’ll make it happen on his own. I guess in that way he’s my puppet. I bet he thinks that I’m his puppet, but, no. I just kind of bring my own energy to the band. Sometimes I’m hot and sometimes I’m cold. He’s finicky too. Tweaky if you will. 3. Why should we all listen to Tweak Bird? A To get to know the state of Illinois better, because Sufjan left out the whole poppy Black Sabbath-y side. B Grunge’s not dead. C Frankly, the songs would sound better on a Korg synth. We encourage our keyboard-playing fans to cover our songs in their homes to fully experience our music. D Other, namely: All songs sound better through a Korg synth. If you don’t know you must try. All people who attempt to better their lives through listening to music should add Tweak Bird to their playlist. Page 34

TB is just one part of a balanced sonic pyramid. 4. As this is the Don’t Try This at Home Issue: Have you ever tried anything in or outside your home that you regret? A A Melrose Place marathon. B Imitating Jackass’ Party Boy by dancing wildly to our own album while ripping my shirt in a local audio store. C Riding bare-chested on a motorcycle in snowy winter for the sake of the arts (see cover of second album). D Other, namely: This is a true story from the past. When Ashton and I were in our teens and living at home, we wanted to convert our bedrooms into a two-room home recording studio. The problem was we didn’t have a doorway connecting the two and had no tools, except for a chainsaw we used for cutting up firewood. I took it and ripped a huge crooked hole in the wall just big enough to walk through if you hunched over. Mom was bummed. Tweak Bird play on 10 September at Scheld’apen in Antwerpen. The show is free for Subbacultcha members. Other live dates: 13/09 - Incubate, Tilburg; 14 September De Kreun, Kortrijk

Blood Orange Coastal Grooves

Widowspeak self-titled

Devonte Hynes is the embodiment of a restless creative. Among a ton of other pursuits, he started his musical career with London dance punk trio Test Icicles, moved to Omaha, Nebraska to record his debut as folky troubadour Lightspeed Champion at Saddle Creek, has collaborated with The Chemical Brothers, Basement Jaxx, Florence and the Machine and Solange Knowles, and is a fashion consultant for Jay Z’s Rocawear label. None of which is reflected much in his debut album under his new moniker Blood Orange. Inspired by oriental pop, Prince and Paris is Burning-style street tough drag queens, it’s an album that should annoy me, instead makes for the perfect transition from the party to the afterparty: by turns seductive and melancholic, always very cool.

The debut full-length by this Brooklyn trio immediately calls to mind several fashionable references: Chris Isaak, David Lynch, various druggy, ’90s bands. Singer Molly Hamilton’s breathy, sexy vocals in particular have drawn a lot of comparisons to Hope Sandoval (of Mazzy Star fame), but faster tempos and Rob Thomas’ jangly, surfy guitar lines in particular make their music less oppressively languid than that Monster of Shoegaze. While Widowspeak isn’t this year’s most original record, it is dreamy and seductive enough to soundtrack its own Wild at Heart-style road trip.

Pictureplane Thee Physical

CANT Dreams Come True

On his second full-length, Pictureplane’s Travis Egedy attempts to realise the nü-rave vision he laid out in a cryptic manifesto back in June, nicely summed up by his words: ‘New forms of techno fetish in a world with no true physical limits’. Lyrically, the album focuses on themes of transcending gender and embracing sexuality. Sonically, call it synthwave or a sort of industrial pop which intermingles ’90s diva-sounding vocal samples and Egedy’s breathy vocals with buzzing synths and pounding beats. One can criticise Egedy’s agenda regarding mainstreaming queer culture, or, like me, one can simply applaud Thee Physical’s viscerally pleasing blend of the rough with the pretty and overall danceability.

The solo debut by Grizzly Bear bassist/vocalist/producer Chris Taylor was recorded with the assistance of Twin Shadow’s George Lewis Jr. While Dreams Come True certainly isn’t nightmarish, it is darker and more synthy than I would have expected, perhaps per Lewis’ influence. Since Taylor helped produce Lewis’ own solo debut album, Forget, last year, I guess this was a case of ‘you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours.’ And I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship, because both albums are lovely and rich.

(Secretly Canadian)

(Lefse/Souterrain Transmissions)

Aside from the fact that it was neither written nor recorded by Bruce Springsteen, this new Bruce Springsteen album is pretty solid. Kidding, but actually, the thought did occur to me that I’d rather listen to skilled new bands reshape obvious influences into pleasant new material than listen to the walking ghosts those artists have become in their advanced age crank out music so awful it makes me terrified of my own impending mortality. That they also rip off Bob Dylan, Dire Straits and Tom Petty keeps things varied. I’ll take my dad to their concert and it will make him feel simultaneously comfortable and hip.

After two relatively quiet years, these Sacramento beardos follow up their simultaneous debuts Ganglians and (the superior) Monster Head Room with a double LP. A couple of their early songs (‘Cryin’ Smoke’ especially) had a kind of preternatural knack for melody shining through their shitty production that made them stand-outs of the lo-fi revival in my mind. A cryin’ shame, then, that what I expected to be a triumphant step up sounds halfassed instead. The best I can say is that they seem like a band that will be forgotten, and 20 years from now some new beardo will dig one of their records out of a dusty crate, expecting nothing, and be pleasantly surprised by what he hears – given that he was expecting nothing.

Serves: 4 Ingredients: ½ small, chilled watermelon 4 large vine-ripened tomatoes 150 g feta cheese About 2 tbsp of fresh mint and oregano A splash of lime juice and extra virgin olive oil • Make this salad in one of those cool white minimalist bowl things. It needs to look pretty. Eat immediately; under no circumstance can this dish go mushy.

• Top the watermelon with slices of ripe tomato and nonchalantly crumble some feta over it all.

• Drizzle the lime juice and extra virgin olive oil over the salad, sprinkle with fresh mint and • Peel the watermelon and chop oregano. into 2x5cm chunks, or whatever size cuboid you fancy. Page 45

99 Problems and the Bitch... knows the answer Hallo Bitch, In welke kleuren kan een kameleon allemaal verschieten? Dank voor een reply, Kees. Hoi Kees, Is dit een prijsvraag uitgegeven door Reader’s Digest i.s.m. Skittles? Als je me een paar zakken van die kleurige suikerkanonnen weet te bezorgen, braak ik het graag voor je uit en hou ik er geheel spontaan een kameleon naast. Doegie, B. Hoi Bitch, Ik heb er schoon genoeg van het sadomasochistische vriendinnetje uit te hangen. Anders had ik verdorie wel zo’n lieslaarzen broekpak zonder kont aangetrokken en wasknijpers aan m’n hoven geklemd. Hoe kom ik uit deze benarde positie zonder mijn relatie op het spel te zetten? Hij heeft namelijk ook een heel lieve kant. Dank en groetjes, Sonia. Beste Sonia, Pijn is voor sommigen een erogene zone. Ik denk dat je dat niet moet onderschatten. Vind je het ook niet een ietsiepietsie opwindend als hij als een boze Middeleeuwse kruisvaarder z’n vaderland probeert te bevrijden Page 46

van een of ander juk? Het is een gave om je vanuit de gedomineerde positie op te werken naar de dominerende. Larry’s huisgenoot uit Curb Your Enthusiasm zou zeggen: “You gotta turn that shit around on him, Larry!” Misschien past jou de dominerende rol beter? Laat me weten als je de boel “geflipped” hebt. Groetjes, B. Beste Bitch, Vind je ook niet dat mensen met een opgeruimd huis nietszeggende persoonlijkheden hebben? M. te H. Waarom vraag je dat? Is ‘t om de teloorgang van je eens zo perfecte feng shui inrichting te vergoelijken? Komt je schoonfamilie binnenkort langs? Ik heb ooit ergens gelezen dat (de inhoud van) een damestas de staat van het vrouwelijke “mysterie” weerspiegelt. Nou, mijn verweerde linnen tasje is allesbehalve basisch. Wat dat over mijn persoonlijkheid zegt, mag je komen testen onder het genot van een soy latte of als je toevallig vrouwenarts bent, een inwendig onderzoek. Ik ben net 30 geworden. B.

99 Problems and the Bitch... knows the answer

Hoihoi Bitch, Wat vind jij van de uitspraak “vroeger was altijd alles beter”? Ikzelf sta er nogal ambigu tegenover. Doei, Peter. Tja, ladders waren vroeger van hout. Maar alleen die arme Polen zeulen zo’n onding langs onze grachten en kijk eens hoe

jong oud zij worden. Een beetje glazenwassende entrepreneur heeft zo’n uitschuifbaar aluminium exemplaar en een gepolariseerde zonnebril op z’n kruin. Maar ja, vroeger had je mammoeten. Tegenwoordig chihuahua’s. Ik sta er ook flink dubbel in. Dag, B. Page 47

Tweak Bird

10 September - D’Herbouvillekaai Scheld’apen, Antwerpen 20.00 | €8 | Free for Subbacultcha! members

Tweak Bird’s Wikipedia entry was deleted in 2008 because the article didn’t indicate importance or significance. Well, fuck the internet — these guys make overwhelmingly loud music. Brothers Caleb and Ashton borrow their sound from the space between stoner rock and progressive punk, and with their explosive live shows they’ve made quite a name for themselves. Read an Interview on page 32.

Ford & Lopatin

13 September - Charlatan (Democrazy), Gent 20.00 | €11 | Free for Subbacultcha! members

Oneothrix Point Never’s Daniel Lopatin teamed up with Joel Ford to start Games, an ultra-smooth futuristic pop duo. Following some legal issues, they changed their name to Ford & Lopatin and went on to release Channel Pressure, one of the most anticipated albums of 2011. In combining progressive electronics and catchy pop melodies, the record has certainly lived up to expectations. And judging from their dance pop aspirations, tonight’s show promises to be quite the party - not to be missed. Read an Interview on page 16. Page 51

Cam Deas/Jack Allet Score Decasia

29 September - D’Herbouvillekaai Scheld’apen, Antwerpen 22.30 | €5 | Free for Subbacultcha! members

Where there is decay, new life blooms in the form of a score. The film Decasia (2002) uses the aesthetics of old, damaged film to show us a few things about mortality and the illusory nature of permanence. Through the muck and mold, Cam Deas and Jack Allett have combined their distinct talents as experimental guitarists to give a sonic layer to Bill Morrison’s fastcut, dense film.

Magic Touch

09 October - DOK, Gent 21.00 | Free for all

Damon Palermo of Mi Ami has just released his first 12” under the pseudonym Magic Touch on 100% SILK. He’ll be travelling all through Europe this autumn, showing off his repetitive funky dance grooves solo style.

Pigeons + Miaux

12 October - Venue tbc (KRAAK), Brussel Time tbc | €6 | Free for Subbacultcha! members

Pigeons are coming to Brussel. Sharing a label with Ducktails and Julian Lynch (Olde English Spelling Bee), these cats shook things up with their album Si Faustine last year. They’ve got a handle on the psychedelic side of Page 52

things but still have oh so sweet folk tunes and the narrative elements that make listening to songs fun again. They’ll be joined by Antwerpen’s own Miaux - Mia Prce makes melodious music that is melancholy in its guts but also has the danceable feel of a workout soundtrack.

Exhibition: Out of Storage

Until 18 December - Timmerfabriek, Maastricht Wed-Sun 11.00-17.00, Thursday until 21.00 | €10 | Free for Subbacultcha! members

The beautifully renovated industrial space Timmerfabriek in Maastricht has been converted into the largest temporary art museum in Europe. Hosting hundreds of works compiled by the French contemporary art institute FRAC Nord-Pas de Calais, Out of Storage attempts to give its patrons a look at the connections of the unseen elements of art collection, restoration and exhibition. Featuring works by Pawel Althamer, Superflex, Andy Warhol, Barbara Visser, Hedi Slimane and many more.

Shabazz Palaces, 28 September - Ancienne Belgique, Brussel

Jasper TX

9 September - D’Herbouvillekaai Scheld’apen, Antwerpen The music by Swedish electronic wizard Dag Rosenqvist aka Jasper TX feels like an unresolved riddle. His newest album The Black Sun Transmissions is another fine collection of ambient sounds and feedback. In his brilliant compositions he combines sonic drones with lo-fi pop and post-rock influences and even the odd glockenspiel. Getting curious? Come on out and join the mystery.

Tuxedomoon 10 September - Magasin4, Brussel San Francisco-based Tuxedomoon are surely one of the most interesting postpunk bands to emerge from the late ’70s. And in combining minimalistic rock with experimental new wave they still sound surprisingly modern.

Tweak Bird 10 September - Scheld’Apen, Antwerpen 14 September - De Kreun, Kortrijk When not giving each other noogies and fighting for their parents’ attention, brothers Caleb and Ashton Bird make experimental stoner rock. Read more on page 51.

Incubate Festival 12-18 September - Tilburg (NL) 2011 marks the seventh edition of Tilburg’s annual celebration of indie culture, Incubate. Performances and exhibits spanning music, art, film, dance and debate will take place in 29 venues sprinkled throughout the city. An excellent reputation, an especially kick-ass lineup, and the looming threat of autumn provide plenty of reasons to head south. Highlights include Austra, Battles, EMA, Ford & Lopatin, HEALTH, The War on Drugs and many more. Page 55

Shows in September

Ford & Lopatin 13 September - Charlatan (Democrazy), Gent Ultra-smooth futuristic pop duo Ford & Lopatin have released one of the most highly-anticipated albums of 2011. With their catchy mix of progressive electronics and dance-pop melodies, tonight’s show promises to be quite the party. Read more on page 51. Interview on page 16.

Lightning Dust 14 September - Vooruit, Gent This Canadian indie rock duo and Black Mountain side project consists of vibratoloving vocalist Amber Webber and pianist/ organist Joshua Wells. Here they set aside the stoner jams of their main project, opting instead for a softer, more melodic feel. High drama is sure to ensue.

gade earlier this year. Musically, Girlseeker doesn’t have much in common with Iceage. Their ’80s wave pop music reminds us more of acts such as John Maus and Ariel Pink. Rumour has it that live the band sounds like Ariel Pinks’ retarded cousin. Well, if that’s not enough reason for you to head down to Kinky Star tonight, then here’s another one: the show is free, go check it out!

Leffingeleuren Festival 16-18 September - Leffinge EMA, Rainbow Arabia, Battles The annual Leffingeleuren Festival combines a cosy atmosphere with an amazing line-up. With a spectacular view on the 19-century village church, you can enjoy great acts such as Austra, Rainbow Arabia, EMA, Nosaj Thing, Battles, Man Man, The Fresh & Onlys and Crystal Fighters. Tickets are cheap and there’s a campsite too.

Buzz on Your Lips

The War on Drugs

ft Enduser and Sleep Party People 15 September - Blaes 208 (Fuse), Brussel Brussel-based promoters Buzz on Your Lips have made a name for themselves in promoting shows for great acts such as Crystal Castles, Girl Unit, Prefuse 73 and Part Chimp. For their next event they’ve cooked up quite the line-up. No less than ten acts will perform on two different stages inside Blaes 208. Among the highlights are Kid606, Enduser and Sleep Party People.

17 September - Ancienne Belgique, Brussel Adam Granduciel’s pet project weaves some pretty obvious Springsteen, Dylan and Tom Petty influences into epic Americana that’s well-executed enough to sound like a forgotten track by one of the afore-mentioned artists - both cinematic and comforting in its vague familiarity.

Girlseeker + Warm Climate 16 September - Kinky Star (KRAAK), Gent Girlseeker have emerged from the alternative music scene in Copenhagen, which has been flourishing ever since Iceage released their stunning noise-punk album New Bri-

Figurines 17 September - GC Elzenhof (Vaartkapoen), Brussel 20 September - Cafe Video, Gent Danish indie rock veterans Figurines have been going strong for more than 15 years. They operate withing the same twangy pop realm as bands such as Pavement and Built to Spill and are touring in support of their new, self-titled album that came out earlier this year. Page 57

Agenda

Shows in September

Omar Souleyman 13 September - Trix, Antwerpen. 18 September - Ancienne Belgique, Brussel

Omar Souleyman 13 September - Trix, Antwerpen 18 September - Ancienne Belgique, Brussel Syrian folk pop singer Omar Souleyman made a name for himself performing at parties and weddings throughout his home country. Apparently there are more than 500 releases to his name, most of them live recordings from weddings that were made as a gift to the married couple. Since then Mr Souleyman has made quite the career improvement and is now performing his raunchy oriental dance grooves at festivals including ATP and Sonar; he’s also gathered high-profile fans such as Bjork and David Byrne.

Love Inks 20 September - Botanique, Brussel Austin-based trio Love Inks left quite the impression at this year’s SXSW festival. Since then, they’ve released their much raved-about debut album E.S.P, which combines minimal pop instrumentation with the warm and powerful voice of Sherry Leblanc. If you’re into bands like Au Revoir Simone and Cults, then you can’t go wrong here. Page 58

Sic Alps 22 September - Vooruit, Gent After having released a stunning record called Napa Asylum back in January, the boys from Sic Alps are back with a brandnew EP to back up their extensive European tour, and once again the vocals are rough and the tracks are short and sweet. The release glitters with San Fran gutter gold as it features members of Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall and Big Techno. They’ve previously toured with Subbacultcha! favorites Wooden Shijps, Times New Viking, Godspeed You! Black Emperor and none other than Sonic Youth.

Esmerine 24 September - DOK (Democrazy), Gent 29 September - Home Plugged, Brussel Esmerine celebrate their tenth anniversary with a new record called La Lechuza. For this album, percussionist Bruce Cawdron (Godspeed You! Black Emperor) and cellist Rebecca Foon (Thee Silver Mt. Zion) team up with some inspiring musicians (including Arcade Fire’s Sarah Neufeld) to come up with some of the finest modern chamber music you’ll ever hear.

Agenda

Shows in September

Sleep Party People (Buzz on Your Lips), 15 September - Blaes 208 (Fuse), Brussel

Ganglians 25 September - De Kreun, Kortrijk What these Sacramento beardos lack in musicianship or talent per se, they make up for with catchiness and plenty of Beach Boyish good vibrations.

Black Lips 28 September - Le Grand Mix, Tourcoing (FR) Notorious garage-rock hillbilly hipsters Black Lips are touring on the back of their new album Arabia Mountain. Despite the fact that it was produced by pop guru Mark Ronson, it still sound nice and sleazy, just the way we like it. The Lips are known for their messy but awesome shows, in which they always pull unexpected shenanigans.

Shabazz Palaces 28 September - Ancienne Belgique, Brussel Shit baby, Shabazz Palaces are coming to town. Their debut album Black Up was the first hip hop album to come off of Sub Pop and it could just be the mark of a new era in indie. This three piece does away with the

standard 16 bars in lieu of thick bass, digital soundscapes and obscure song titles.

Todaysart Festival 29 September - 01 October, various locations, Brussel TodaysArt is a festival that’s been taking place in Den Haag since 2005. This year, the festival branches out towards Brussel. Expect concerts, exhibitions, screenings and lots more. Among the highlights of the music programme are D/R/U/G/S/, dEbruit and Daedelus.

Play Festival 30 Sept.-1 Oct. - Muziekodroom, Hasselt The annual Play Festival offers a wide range of progressive electronic music. One of this year’s highlights is young British producer Pariah who’s signed to the renowned R&S label (James Blake, Vondelpark) and has been making a name for himself recently with his mix of deep house and hip hop beats. Besides all the cutting-edge electronic artists, the festival also offers some interesting Belgian bands, such as The Hickey Underworld and Räpe Blossoms. Page 59
