The Fashion Issue

This is an assembly of some of Mr Daniel Martin-McCormick’s clothes and style items shot on film by Bobby Doherty in Daniel’s apartment in Brooklyn, New York (flip to page 28 for more). Daniel is making uplifting electronic music under the moniker of Ital, and it was at one of his concerts that we got inspired to make the Fashion Issue. The music coming from his sampler and laptop was simply oozing through the audience’s garments, draining them in coloured patterns, asymmetry, odd glasses and even odder bangs. Everything is possible and nothing is real. A gritty decadence of mismatch that gels together a generation. It’s beautiful.

It’s Saturday morning. I pick up my newspaper and go for the magazine, my favourite part. I glance at the cover and feel a wave of disappointment: another boring fashion issue. So why have we made one ourselves? Cause in the end, fashion, like art and music, is a keyhole through which we get a glimpse of what this life is all about. And if you flip through these pages fast enough, the truth will reveal itself in big 3D neon letters. Like a gateway to the collective subconscious. Enjoy. Page 7

Science: John Maus

Ever since seeing John Maus play live, we’ve been huge fans of this creepy loner. And not only of his music, but also of his social theories about music, culture and mass consumption. Check out his crazy interviews on YouTube.

Relaunch: DOK

After a well-deserved winter nap, DOK reopens in the first weekend of February. On Sunday afternoon (5 Feb), come check out the wonderful art exhibition curated by ourselves and Ladda and stick around for a great party featuring live performances by Ital, Cupp Cave and Dynooo. You’re all invited, but please bring your rave buttons.

This month’s recommendations

By Zofia Ciechowska

THEESatisfaction theesatisfaction.bandcamp.com

Singers, rappers, producers, dancers and lovers Catherine HarrisWhite and Stasia Irons aka THEESatisfaction are Seattle’s goddesses of funky, screwed-up, souly hip-hop. Listen up Das Racist, Odd Future, Shabazz Palaces and all you leftfield-hip-hop-artists-gone-allPitchfork, these girls are giving you a run for your money! THEESatisfaction are due to release their first LP on Sub Pop early this year, but their Bandcamp is already teeming with groovy EPs, Transitions and Snow Motion being particularly mindfuckingly excellent. So get on it while this stuff is hot, fresh and funky. I’m already crushing on them and their funny little stage dancing.

Metal Chocolates

www.metalchocolates.com Another great happy rappy duo from Seattle, Metal Chocolates (otherwise known as Rude Notes) is the project of OC Notes and MC Rik Rude. These dudes recorded their totally ace self-titled record in the OK Hotel, the same place where ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ was born. If that doesn’t make you go oh-em-gee then I don’t know what will. Metal Chocolates produce a whir of bouncing beats, interlaced with stuff from all ends of the music spectrum - jazz, psychedelica, world music, you-name-it-you-got-it. With Valentine’s Day on the way, there’s nothing better than giving your love a box of these bonbons. Page 10


New Music

Oliver Tank

yespleaserecords.bandcamp.com So, this one is for all the ladies out there that have sobbed their way through a rainforest’s worth of tissues to James Blake’s album last year. Girls, now the music of your new-year melancholy is made by 21-year-old Australian Oliver Tank. I will turn a blind eye to the fact that his EP is called Dreams and one of the tracks is called ‘I Love You’ (really Oliver, really?) and will proceed to declare his sound extremely good for that whole ambient melancholy bedroom pop genre that is so befitting for the oncoming months of grey gloom.

Ectoplasm Girls

www.myspace.com/soundofphantasmagoria

Sisters Nadine and Tanya Byrne from Sweden have the whole effortlessly-cool-and-ghostly-Scandinavian vibe thing down, jealous sigh. Their debut LP TxN, released on iDEAL Recordings, is a noisy concoction of muffled sighs and creaks interspersed with the occasional 8-bit crunch and pulsating drum machine. The longest track on the album, ‘If Your Mother Asks’, is absolutely sublime as it generates wavy patterns of rhythm that tangle into endless oblivion. You’ll tap your foot to this stuff, but keeping in sync will only work after a heavy medley of bathroom cabinet medicine and high-percentage spirits. Page 11

HHOME VVIDEOS hhomevvideos.bandcamp.com

Emulating the stuttering quality of home movies with the spelling of your band name, whoa that’s pretty cool. This is another one of those mysterious, digital theory blabla projects that no one knows a thing about, but for one thing we do know that they enjoy spelling stuff with dollar $igns and those funny lopsided triangle things >>>. Hype Williams, Alphabets, Pictureplane etc. fans huddle up and listen - 2012 is looking pretty damn cool already with HHOME VVIDEOS emerging with their nifty little mixtape called _IN > PUTS. Now turn on that looped ‘BABY!!!!’ sample and grind to some warped witchy techno.

Boy Snacks

beerontherug.bandcamp.com I don’t know anything about the dude(s) and/or dudette(s) behind Boy Snacks but one thing is certain, their music is as tight as Magnum P.I.’s tiny short shorts. Their self-titled debut released by Beer on the Rug is a collection of 15 tracks that seem to circle round the theme of lacklustre suburban life - think carpooling, food colouring and boring daytime TV. Y’know, all that stuff that we urban, cultured hipsters like to mock a little. Not sure if every track sounding a bit like the previous one was intentional, but if it was, Boy Snacks get kudos for their supreme sense of irony. Page 12

Blouse

Charlie Hilton from Blouse says that her band’s dark melancholic synth pop debut album is bound to fit you like an oversized cashmere sweater. We’ve been wearing it ever since it came out back in November, so we figured it was about time to take it off and ask Charlie what the fabric is all about. Turns out it has everything to do with her alleged silk worm farm, her love of candy bracelets and jeans blessed by Jesus Christ himself. Phone interview by Zofia Ciechowska.

I read somewhere that you wanted to write a song for when the ball drops on New Years. What would that song sound like if you did? It would probably sound something like ‘Shadow’, one of our first singles. It’s really sparkly and big, like a glittery New Year’s dress. People love to wear sparkles on NYE, music should wear sparkles too! So everyone keeps on writing that you live in this super huge warehouse in Portland. IS IT TRUE?! Oh, it’s really funny, we don’t live there at all and we don’t own it either! Patrick works for a production company and they rented it out to do some shooting, and we just set up a studio upstairs. I guess it’s somewhat true, it’s where Blouse had its beginnings, but it’s not like we’re all living in there. It’s such a cool place though and it is surrounded by fierce nature. It used to be owned by a company called Architectural Reproductions, so they left a lot of their old plaster columns, giant faces, hands and female busts. There are old broken windows and a giant skate ramp, a crane, weird ledges and ladders. I’ve never been to Portland but I hear it’s a really cool place. Where would you take a friend that has never been to your city? Page 18

I’d take them to the Pittock Mansion in the West Hills, for a nice view of the city and a little history - I love mansion tours. Then I would take them out for dinner and drinks. Portland has a ridiculous culinary scene. People here love food. But Portland is also known for its strange pairings, like putting bacon on things like ice cream and donuts! Do you get nostalgic for any clothes from your childhood? Yes! My parents were hippy rockers. My dad dressed me up in the strangest things, like pink hightop Converse and weird artsy stonewashed jackets that his friends had made. Sometimes when I look at pictures of my family back then it makes me wish I knew how cool we were, especially how cool my dad was. I was always kind of embarrassed of my dad when I was a kid, he always took it to the limits with his broken-up leather jackets and long hair. I thought parents were supposed to look all businesslike, I didn’t get it back then. I heard something about you seeing a sign saying ‘blouses’ in a drycleaner’s window and that that inspired your band name. What if that sign had said ‘pantyhose’ or ‘ponchos’, would you take it or leave it? Haha, I think we would have left

‘ponchos’ and ‘panties’ on the window. There was something about the connotations of the word ‘blouse’ that seemed so perfect. It’s a classic, feminine, sheer garment. I wear blouses a lot. I guess I just think ‘sexy librarian’ when I think ‘blouse’. Not sure if the guys know about this though... Have you ever considered selling blouses at your merch table? I actually have, but I thought that might be a bit too obvious. In art school they always told us to go beyond the first connection, but maybe the fact that it’s so obvious is what’s so great about the idea. Then people would say, ‘I’m wearing a Blouse’, with a capital B. I think we should do it, but it will have to be when we’re a little fancier. We’ll tell people we keep our own silk worms in that warehouse that spin the fabric for our blouses. So if your album was an item of clothing what would it be? Probably an oversized cashmere sweater with some holes in it, both luxurious and comfortable. Holes in clothing are always recommended. I once got sent to the office in middle school for having holy jeans. Were they made by your dad? Or wait, were they holy as in blessed by God? Hahaha, no, but he obviously didn’t get angry with me. And they Page 22

were holy as in blessed, of course. Or maybe I spelled holy wrong. Holey? Wholey? Doesn’t matter, sounds the same! So there’s this pink blanket on your album cover. Can you tell me more about this choice of blanket? Did you also consider black satin sheets or a leopard throw? Does it need to be dry cleaned or would a simple hand-wash do? Well, it’s a photo taken by a wonderful photographer called Leon Batchelor. We actually considered other sheets, but they seemed too serious or a little too sexy, that’s why we went with the pink blanket. There was something really perfect about Leon’s photo. It felt kind of innocent, you don’t know if it’s supposed to be sexy or sad or sweet. I am slightly disappointed you didn’t choose Power Ranger sheets... Ha, or the rainbow heart sheets I used to have. Look at us go with all these clothing/textile references! Please use those sheets for your next album cover! Ok, but with some holes! Natural ones of course, casually worn away by the wind. Blouse play on 08 February in Vooruit in Ghent. The show is free for all.

Dirty Beaches’ Alex Zhang Hungtai has been touring nonstop ever since his dark and pulsating debut album Badlands caused a storm in Blog-o-land last year. But sometimes one just has to slide out of that rock star uniform, slip into something comfortable and kick back. Subbacultcha! was there to capture the moment. Dirty Beaches play at De Kreun in Kortrijk on 21 February.

Ital

Since the audience - or rather, their clothes at one of Ital’s shows inspired us to make the Fashion Issue, we thought it was a good idea to spend some time with Daniel Martin-McCormick to chat about fashion. Turns out he used to wear the same shirt for six months on end. The chic, the dirty and the absolutely necessary with Ital. Interview by Johanna Valdés. Photos shot by Bobby Doherty in Daniel Martin-McCormick’s loft in Brooklyn, New York.

Subbacultcha!: OK, so can you name some presets in your style? Daniel Martin-McCormick: I don’t really have a lot of clothes but I really like the ones I have. I remember for a long time, I would find one Tshirt and be like, that’s it for the next six months. I’m in it. There’s this photo of a show I played out in Berkeley when I was on tour, and I was looking at a photo of a room and I was looking at it but not at me in particular so I was like, ‘who’s that really dirtyPage 26

looking guy in the back of the photo... oh shit, that’s me!’ The T-shirt had brown circles under the armpits and I just thought, ‘uh, I need to change this style.’ Oh yeah? Yeah, I like wearing clothes I like. I don’t like looking like an asshole. When I was a kid, my mom was always trying to suggest stuff [for me to wear] and I was like, ‘NO! No one will have any say in this matter except for me.’ [laughs]

You mentioned that your mom is training to be a pastor, right? Yeah, she’s pursuing a degree in spiritual counselling. So does she have any particularly conservative views about how you dress? Nah, she’s super liberal. I mean, they didn’t like me dying my hair or anything like that but all things considered, they were fine. They gave me just enough room to rebel. Like, ‘you may not get a nose ring.’ And I’d go, ‘I hate you, Mom and Dad!’ Did you ever do it anyway? Nah, no nose rings for me. I got my ear pierced. Going against the grain. Hardcore. OK, so let’s talk a bit more about some of your other pieces. What’s the story behind this plaid one? [points to shirt] I got that at a flea market in Paris on the last tour so it’s kind of my favourite shirt right now. Thing is, I hate wearing button-down shirts under sweaters. I’m just like, ‘ugh, it’s not me.’ So I can only wear this shirt when I don’t feel like wearing a sweater. Is that an unspoken rule? No, that’s a spoken rule! That and ‘no cargo pants’ [laughs]. In that respect my job as a dog walker kinda sucks. Sometimes I have to rep the rain pants. Page 30

Everyone has shit that they don’t want to wear but they have to. What’s the outfit when you’re dog walking? At the most intense, last winter, it was two pairs of socks (normal socks and ski socks), duck boots, two pairs of leggings, pants, T-shirt, sweater, two windbreakers, a heavy jacket, gloves and a hat. All at once? All at once... yeah, that’s my winter outfit. In the summer, I try to wear all white. White shorts, white T-shirt. Cuts down on any place where there’s potential for sweat accumulation, like under bag straps - it gets so nasty. How about your dog-walking exploits? How many dogs do you normally walk at a time? It’s usually one at a time. I’m not like a beast master, with like ten dogs at once. I interviewed for a couple of beast master positions but the pay was somehow worse... I’m not like a domineering, dog whisperer kind of guy. They’re normally running around me, tying me up as I’m walking. More than one would be crazy. Ital plays on 05 February in DOK in Ghent. The show is free for Subbacultcha! members.

For someone who says he’s no social butterfly, Andy of Denver Rocky Mountain avant-pop duo Gauntlet Hair is pretty outspoken. The BFF’s (him and Craig on drums) have an amazing (selftitled) album out on Dead Oceans, which we can’t seem to ‘unplay’. Read about Craig’s irresistibility, Home Improvement’s Tim Allen and drowning your lyrics in reverb. Skype interview by Brenda Bosma. Photos shot in Denver by Mario Zoots.

Hi Andy, let’s do this? Yes, ma’am. So, what is gauntlet hair? It was actually a clerk at a vintage shop who dropped that bomb. I was about to buy this Johnny Winters album for a buck and the guy behind the counter said he had gauntlet hair. It’s really weird hair, like a helmet. Will it get more fashionable than a ponytail or braids, do you think? Hopefully not! What kind of hairdo do you prefer on girls? Short hair. That’s refreshing. So no long American Apparel hair hanging loosely around

bare shoulders accompanied by a seductive stare? Gauntlet Hair likes its girls to be boys. But wait, that would work as well, I suppose. What’s great about Denver? You tell me. Well, it’s also known as ‘The Mile-High City’. I guess The Byrds named their famous song ‘Eight Miles High’ after it, but they were seven miles off, due to, well, you know... drugs. And Tim Allen is from Denver! But that doesn’t have to mean anything. Haha, but that DOES mean something, Brenda! I grew up on that show. Page 33

Gauntlet Hair

‘I was about to buy this Johnny Winters album for a buck and the guy behind the counter said he had gauntlet hair. It’s really weird hair, like a helmet.’ Do you use his famous Signature Tools? Did you use them for the song ‘Mop It up’? Haha, what? Are they on the market? He has his own line of tools. And a midlife crisis. Hun, his tools don’t work. Seriously, I thought that that was the humour of it... that he knows nothing about tools. Yep, now he has lots of tools he can’t seem to sell. I’m not buying them anyway. Actually Tim is a perfect example of what Denver does to people. They come out here to unwind and go into the chill mode. And look what it did to Tim’s career! All ruined. He got caught up in the chill. Yeah, and fucked up a gazebo or thousand along the way. Haha, I love this so far. I have no idea of what’s going on. Hit me again. I’ve read you two don’t work well with other parties, but for live shows you Page 34

have an extra guitarist. Do I sense some intimacy issues there? Craig and I have become very intimate, yes. It’s been ten years now. We’ve developed that sort of telepathic ability. Trying to involve another person in the writing just seems to slow us down. I suppose we’re very protective of our work, you know? It has taken us so long to get to this point and we really just don’t want to share it with anyone else. Does he automatically answer your (singing-) cries with a smashing (drum) whip? That kind of telepathic vibe? Well, on the topic of intimacy: Craig’s rough in a real sexy I-wantto-make-music-with-you kind of way. You have studied sound engineering, but didn’t mix your own album. That must feel like leaving your baby, or no, your own leg, on someone else’s doorstep. To be eaten by their dog. But maybe afterwards you respect the concept of walking a bit more? Ha, I did the first mix of it. Then

‘Gauntlet Hair likes its girls to be boys. But wait, long hair would work as well, I suppose.’ passed it on to Brian Marcus. I tend to mix for myself, not others, so what sounds good to me may sound like hell to the audience and our mothers. But I put my baby in good hands. I’ve learned my favourite tool is EQ. Okay, haha. What about reverb? Thought you might go to that. I do love me some reverb. To resemble being near the Rocky Mountains, or is that echo? Honestly, nothing that we write has to do with the mountains. It’s more personal. Intimate even. Spill some juicy details please, or mop it up. What, for instance, is ‘ You Can’t Feel It’ about? The song actually is called ‘My Christ’ now. It’s about masochism in a way, but more so in the emotional sense. I’m trying to leave out any lyrics here. Why? Uh, wanna find out, Brenda? Actually, yes. Well, writing has become my main form of expression. I’m not what you would call a social butterfly, I’m sort of shy and reserved. This has ev-

erything to do with why I don’t share my lyrics and such. The use of reverb is similar to that voice they put on those silhouetted people on TV who don’t want their identities to be reveiled. It’s sort of the same kind of shit. I can say whatever the fuck I want, and no one will ever understand anything about it. I see, you drown the lyrics in reverb, so no one gets to hear about the Christ. Basically. But what if you’re quite the poet? Your mom will never know. Haha, she knows. You whisper in her ear? ‘Was that poetry just now?’ Or was it the wind? But I’m not a big fan of poetry. I’m a big plain-speaking guy. Literally sayin’ it like it is. You know it. That’s the new intimate maybe. No beating around the bush, but smacking the nail on the head. Do not use a Tim Allen hammer though. Gauntlet Hair play on 24 February in Les Ateliers Claus in Brussels. The show is free for Subbacultcha! members. Page 37


Music Reviews

New releases worth your while

By Carly Blair

Ital Hive Mind

Trailer Trash Tracys Ester

Daniel Martin McCormick makes challenging music as both Sex Worker and as one half of Mi Ami, but he’s breaking a new set of rules with his Ital project, taking leftfield aesthetics and unconventional song structures and imposing them on classic house and techno. On this particular release, he uses Audacity to ‘chew’ samples and loops. In doing so, he pays tribute to dance music even as he questions our notions of what constitutes it, and artistic creation in general. The approach makes for a weird and warped sound that engulfs you in a drug-addled fog without the inconvenience of having to call your dealer.

While their name evokes images of cutoff jean- and leatherclad, possibly pregnant but definitely meth-addicted chicks, ’tis but a red herring, and this London foursome’s music does anything but. While they claim to be inspired by Sufi poetry, nonWestern guitar tunings, and an ‘animal orchestra’ (whatever any of that means), the end result is the sort of C86 Compilation-channelling, reverb-laden, shoegazey pop that’s been all the rage for the last couple of years. Though one song off the album, ‘Candy Girl’, has been floating around online for over a year now, they’re a bit late to the party nevertheless. Fortunately, singer Suzanna Aztoria’s vocals are lovely, and they pull off the blatant revivalism better than most.

Porcelain Raft Strange Weekend

Music Reviews

Chairlift Something

(Secretly Canadian)

(Columbia / Young Turks)

Brooklyn-based, Rome-born Mauro Remiddi has been making music for years (including short film scores and his stuff with the indie pop band Sunny Day Sets Fire), but this solo bedroom recording project is by far his highest-profile endeavour yet. After he’s been gradually building momentum via a handful of EPs and well-received live performances, this fulllength debut and an opening slot on M83’s tour have Remiddi primed to break through. Strange Weekend represents a promising progression from his earlier work, not only because the production is cleaner, but also because his lush, sparkling synth pop is getting streamlined and his already unique voice more refined.

In the three years that have lapsed since their 2008 debut, this Brooklyn-based synth pop group shook things up by shedding their third band member and getting involved in other projects. For example, Caroline Polachek guested on various sexy dance tracks, such as Washed Out’s ‘You and I’, while Patrick Wimberly produced the last Das Racist album. More importantly, they got a major label deal and spent 18 months labouring over the composition and recording of this sophomore album. Given the circumstances, it’s not surprising that their new material is denser, more polished and more ambitious than ever, but not all of the extra ideas they’ve crammed into these songs are good ones.

What’s Cooking?

Food

Flap Jackson 5

300g unsalted butter 50g desiccated coconut flakes 75g Demerara sugar About 6 tbsp of golden syrup 400g porridge oats 1 pinch of salt

• Preheat your oven to 150° C. • Melt the butter in a small pot and add the sugar, syrup and a pinch of salt. Stir well until all ingredients are nicely mixed. Lick the spoon. • Mix the oats and coconut flakes in a large bowl and then pour in the syrupy mix. Stir well until it turns into a sticky, delicious mess. Lick the spoon. • Line a baking tin (of roughly 20x30 cm) with some greaseproof paper and transfer your flapjack mix into the tin. Distribute evenly and press with the palms of your hands until the mixture is nice and firm.

• Bake for about 25 minutes or until set and golden. Be careful not to overcook it, dry flapjack is just about as disappointing as all those best-album lists you read at the end of last year. • Once the flapjack is out of the oven, wait about 3-4 minutes and cut it into squares. Then leave it to cool down completely and harden. • Enjoy with the biggest, coldest glass of milk you can get your hands on. Or just drink some milk straight out of the carton. You can recycle the flapjack crumbs by putting them in your morning porridge the next day. Page 45

Emika + Teengirl Fantasy

04 February - De Kreun, Kortrijk 20.00 | €12/€15 | Free for Subbacultcha! members Experimental electro pop from the Ninja Tune family. Torn between Bristol and Berlin, Emika’s ghostly and downbeat party anthems show off yet more shards of the ever-expanding dubstep template. Also on the bill tonight are hazy electronic dance duo Teengirl Fantasy (photo).

Ital

05 February - Dok, Ghent 20.00 | €7 | free for Subbacultcha! members

Daniel Martin-McCormick makes challenging music as both Sex Worker and one half of Mi Ami, but he’s breaking a new set of rules with his Ital project, taking leftfield aesthetics and unconventional song structures and imposing them on classic house and techno. Like many of his 100% Silk labelmates, by manipulating existing sounds he calls into question our notions of what constitutes dance music and artistic creation. Heady shit!

Bosco Delrey

15 February - Charlatan (Democrazy), Ghent 20.00 | €10 / €13 | Free for Subbacultcha! members

A ‘garbage-can Elvis’ putting out experimental pop records on Diplo’s Mad Decent label (of all places) might seem weird enough to put you off, but Page 48

while Diplo is vaguely douchey and can’t type to save his life, he can apparently recognise odd pop talent when he sees it - Delrey’s songs are eclectic, shambolic and irresistibly fun. Definitely one to watch.

Cabaret Dr. Strange

ft Herb Diamante, Bridget Hayden, Primordial Undermind, Head of Wantastiquet 16 February - Scheld’apen, Antwerp 20.00 | €8 | Free for Subbacultcha! members

Enter Cabaret Dr. Strange, a seedy world of psychedelia, twisted organ grinding, rock ’n’ roll and dark drones hosted by the fascinating crooner Herb Diamante, who’ll be taking you on a sonic and visual trip that will blow your collective minds.

Blondes + DJs Down&Out Just Nathan + Hearts in Exile

17 February - Tijuana, Ghent 23.00 | €7 | Free for Subbacultcha! members

This dance duo from Brooklyn share a metronome for a heartbeat, balancing the trance-inducing arpeggios of Emeralds with the dancefloor thunder of Fuck Buttons and the experimentalism of Nicolas Jaar. Their lengthy avantgarde dance jams work their magic at a lethargic pace that’s designed to lull you off your feet in the best of ways. Page 49

Flying Saucers Are Real

18 February - Petrol, Antwerp 22.00 | €8 / €12 | Free for Subbacultcha! members This pop-up party is proving to be too cool for school, keeping up appearances this month with a crushing electronic line-up. Expect Palmbomen, Amsterdam’s faceless lord of chillwave, to shine in the dark, alongside a fierce array of rising dance compatriots from the NON Records label (including Renkas, Bear Damen and Hyperhyper). Extra special guest is DJ/ producer Andrew Weatherall, who’s not only been a specialist beat-master since the end of the ‘80s, but who’s also an expert when it comes to helping the guitar world infuse clubbing energy into records.

Active Child

21 February - Botanique, Brussels 20.00 | €12/€15 | Free for Subbacultcha! members

Remember when ukuleles were hip? Well, if you really wanna impress these days, it’s all about the harp. Yep, try lugging one of those down to the park in summer. But as Pat Grossi of Active Child proves, the hulking beast with an angelic sound has much untapped potential. In this case, it forms the centrepiece of his gentle, hazy electronic melange. The boy boasts a fantastic falsetto too (even though he’s got a tendency to bury it in a stadium’s worth of reverb), so big things are expected of him. Page 50

Gauntlet Hair

24 February - Les Ateliers Claus, Brussels 20.00 | €8 | Free for Subbacultcha! members This Denver-based duo, founded by best pals Craig and Andy, make danceable avant-pop music. While they’ve definitely got some Animal Collective vocal influences, their blissful, pounding drum (machine) beats call more to mind the visceral thrill of Sleigh Bells, and when singer Andy R isn’t bellowing, his vocals are reminiscent of The Dismemberment Plan’s Travis Morrison’s deadpan delivery. Throw in guitars that range from shoegaze to post-punk, and you’ve got one energetic and enjoyable hodgepodge. We at Subbacultcha say ‘Not to be missed, folks!’. Read an interview on page 33.

A Winged Victory for the Sullen 26 February - Cactus, Bruges 20.00 | €8/€12 | Free for Subbacultcha! members

This collaboration between ex-Sparklehorse and Stars of the Lid musician Adam Wiltzie and composer Dustin O’Halloran beautifully mixes the droning soundscapes and melancholy post-classical piano compositions of their respective solo endeavours. They’ve just released a wonderful album that sounds like a modern-day soundtrack to Twin Peaks.

Tycho

26 February - Trix, Antwerp 19.30 | €10/€13 | Free for Subbacultcha! members

Immersive sun-drenched electronics from the acclaimed San Franciscan producer. Tycho originally broke through in the ’00s thanks to a soothing and mellow Boards of Canada-style sound. After a hefty seven-year stint away from the limelight, he’s finally back with atmospheric new album Dive, which bubbles away with an even denser array of samples, beats and fluid melodies. Page 51

S.C.U.M.

Megafaun

01 February - AB, Brussels Despite a name with a resounding connection to the googly-eyed new wave of punk that was touted in the ’90s, these London boys promote a dazed vision of post-punk. Their synths are in perpetual overdrive while the retro bass-and-drums attack provides a pulse, but there’s no denying their abilities as modern pop artists.

02 February - AB, Brussels 04 February - Eden, Charleroi 05 February - Vooruit, Ghent Imagine if Pavement had focused their slacker prowess on sunny bluegrass folk. Well, it may have sounded something like North Carolina’s Megafaun, who have the finger-pluckin’ acoustic progressions and perfect campfire harmonies, but are relaxed to the point that it sounds like they’re melting in the winter sun.

Ghostpoet 02 February - Trix, Antwerp 03 February - Depot, Leuven A lot has happened in hip hop in the past year, from bling to comedy. One of the real highlights was the commercial and critical breakthrough of Obaro Ejimiwe, who pulled some down-to-earth magic out of the bustling London scene. Replete with live band, expect renditions and diversions of the floor-filling material from debut album Peanut Butter Blues & Melancholy Jam, flooded with off-kilter beats, thick bass and sharp, honest lyricism.

Wild Flag 03 February - Vooruit, Ghent What a combo: the scissor kicks and shredding guitar of Carrie Brownstein (ex-Sleater Kinney); the flailing drumming of Janet Weiss (ex-Sleater Kinney, The Jicks, Quasi and more), who is one of the most spectacular drummers on the planet, channelling the power and precision of John Bonham; the dark, psychedelic fantasy world of Mary Timony (ex-Helium); and a thick serving of analogue synth sounds from Rebecca Cole Page 53

(The Minders). Supergroups are supposed to be a fun diversion, but who really expected these fantastic girls to throw up one of the rock ’n’ roll albums of 2011?

Emika + Teengirl Fantasy 4 February - De Kreun, Kortrijk Experimental electro pop from the Ninja Tune family. Read more on page 48.

Ital 5 February - Dok, Ghent Daniel Martin-McCormick (Sex Worker, Mi Ami) is breaking a new set of rules with his Ital project, taking leftfield aesthetics and unconventional song structures and imposing them on classic house and techno. Read more on page 48. Interview on page 26.

Tri Angle Label Night 8 February - AB, Brussels Tri Angle Records formed the epicentre of the witch house hype quake last year, basically by virtue of releasing most of the worthwhile music you could lump into that fake microgenre. Unlike the witchy wannabes who emphasised style over substance by throwing together hip-hop influences and dark and/or ambient production in simplistic ways, each member of this night’s unholy trinity weaves together these basic components in ways that are idiosyncratic, meditative, subtly sexy and often very beautiful.

James Ferraro 08 February - Les Ateliers Claus, Brussels Call it nostalgia or call it collage, there’s no denying James Ferraro is a prolific experimental musician. A continual flow of CDRs, tapes and vinyl have captured moments of off-the-cuff nonsense, as well as moments of electronic pop genius. His latest (a term to be taken with a pinch of salt in Ferraro’s

case), Far Side Virtual, has even just topped The Wire’s 2012 Releases of the Year poll. So get off your tits and pretend you’re trancing out to How Stuff Works on Discovery Channel at four in the morning.

Blouse 08 February - Vooruit, Ghent Softcore arthouse indie porn, perfect if you’ve been enjoying Still Corners’ rise to fame with their ethereal girl pop that harks back to better days. Blouse don’t yet have that same level of hype, but their debut album, out on Captured Tracks, is a soft-spoken enchanting beast.

Tennis 11 February - De Zwerver, Leffinge Tennis spend their days sailing the oceans and writing catchy ’60s girl-group pop songs about how much they wuv each other, then return to shore to record albums and go on worldwide tours. What a life.

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah 11 February - Botanique, Brussels Back in 2005, CYHSY made waves by being one of the first bands to rise to fame based on internet buzz. This early pressure caused them to implode somewhat, but after a four-year hiatus their 2011 release Hysterical represents a return to form.

Azari & III 12 February - Botanique, Brussels These glo-fi-friendly party gurus from Toronto are extra fresh and only on the way up. Obsessed by dance pop of the early ’90s (remember the era when Technotronic ruled European airwaves?), house beats and disco grooves are at the heart of this reincarnation, but it’s heavily melodic and broader than pure dancefloor fodder. Page 55


Agenda

Shows in February

I Break Horses 12 February - Botanique, Brussels Swedish duo I Break Horses make pretty, homemade shoegaze that favours synths over guitars and makes us want to revisit M83’s Dead Cities, Red Seas & Lost Ghosts.

Bosco Delrey 15 February - Charlatan (Democrazy), Ghent A ‘garbage-can Elvis’ putting out experimental pop records on Diplo’s Mad Decent label (of all places). Interested? Read more on page 48.

Caberet Dr. Strange ft. Herb Diamante, Bridget Hayden, Primordial Undermind, Head of Wantastiquet 16 February - Scheld’apen, Antwerp 17 February - Ferme de Biereau, Louvain-la-Neuve 18 February - Cinéma Nova - Brussels 19 February - Le Water Moulin, Tournai Enter a seedy world of psychedelia, twisted organ grinding, rock ’n’ roll and excessive sleaze. Lap it up. Read more on page 49.

the underground dance floor chain these past couple of years with wonky beats and hyperspeed ADHD melodic motifs. His debut album Glass Swords finally saw the light of day thanks to Warp last autumn and made a heavy impact on the album-of-theyear charts by Christmas. Pack a bulletproof vest to deal with the blasts of the bass, but its his freaky hair metal-inspired riffs that really help this dance music stand out from the crowd.

Flying Saucers Are Real ft Palmbomen, Andrew Weatherall, Renkas, Bear Damen, Hyperhyper 18 February - Petrol, Antwerp This pop-up party is proving to be too cool for school, keeping up appearances this month with a set from Palmbomen. Read more on page 50.

Active Child 21 February - Botanique, Brussels Remember when ukuleles were hip? Well, if you really wanna impress these days, it’s all about the harp. Buried in a stadium’s worth of reverb, that is. Read more on page 50

Blondes

Dirty Beaches

17 February - Tijuana, Ghent 19 February - Café Replay, Antwerp This dance duo from Brooklyn share a metronome for a heartbeat, balancing the trance-inducing arpeggios of Emeralds with the dancefloor thunder of Fuck Buttons and the experimentalism of Nicolas Jaar. Read more on page 49.

21 February - De Kreun, Kortrijk Dirty Beaches is the now two-man lo-fi rockabilly project of Alex Zhang Hungtai. He’s cited David Lynch films as a major influence, and Lynch’s corrupted ‘50s aesthetic is reflected in how Hungtai buries his Elvis-like yelps and croons and romantic melodies under layers of no-wavey distortion and reverb.

Rustie 17 February - STUK, Leuven Benefiting from Glasgow’s ultra-hip electronic scene, typically represented by the LuckyMe label, Rustie’s worked his way up Page 56

Chairlift 21 February - Charlatan (Democrazy), Ghent In the three years that have lapsed since their 2008 debut, this Brooklyn-based

synth pop group changed things up by shedding a band member and getting involved in other projects. More importantly, they also got a major label deal and spent 18 months labouring over the composition and recording of their recently released sophomore album Something. Perhaps not surprisingly, their new material is denser, smoother and more polished than ever.

tUnE-YaRdS 22 February - Botanique, Brussels Merrill Garbus’ early work as Afro-tinged lofi folk phenomenon tUnE-yArDs was, despite its rough production, striking by virtue of Garbus’ big voice and bigger personality. For her latest album w h o k i l l, Garbus changed her ‘bedroom’ approach to recording by adding bassist Nate Brenner and heading into a real studio. These changes seem to have liberated her, and the improved production and Brenner’s encouragingly funky bass accompaniment give Garbus the room and confidence she needed to develop into a fully-fledged siren.

The War on Drugs + Real Estate 22 February - Trix, Antwerp 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 aforementioned artists - both cinematic and comforting in its vague familiarity. Also on the bill are Brooklyn-by-way-of-New Jersey chill bros Real Estate. They may or may not have bothered to graduate college, but they’ve definitely earned PhDs in good vibrations by playing catchy psych pop that’s so sunshiney and relaxed, it can transport you to summers past all year round.

Kurt Vile 23 February - Botanique, Brussels The man, the myth, the haircut. 2011 brought us twin delights: first the brilliant Smoke Ring for My Halo and then the So outta Reach EP. Who needs Leonard Cohen when Philadelphia’s lord of the outsiders is on form like this? Page 57

Cloud Control

A Winged Victory for the Sullen

23 February - Trix, Antwerp

25 February - Cultuurcentrum, Hasselt 26 February - Cactus, Bruges

Pretty boy-girl harmonies, ’60s pop beats, shimmering guitars... Ah, if only it was a field in the middle of August instead of lockedup indoors during a bleak February. You’re welcome to dream though.

Gauntlet Hair 24 February - Les Ateliers Claus, Brussels This Denver-based duo make danceable avant-pop music. One of the better releases of 2011. Read more on page 51.

Pulled Apart by Horses 24 February - Botanique, Brussels With song titles including ‘I Punched a Lion in the Throat’ and ‘Wolf Hand’, it should come as no surprise that this Leeds quartet make rhythmic hardcore that appeals to hormone-raging teenage boys. They’ve garnered the adoration of the UK press with their frantic, injury-filled live performances, and with a supposedly more accomplished and ambitious sophomore album freshly out, they seem poised to take the rest of the world by storm.

Sonar Sounds 24 February - Cactus, Bruges The acclaimed club night unleashes a Ninja Tune special. The highlight will be the masterful Solid Steel mash-up, with support from Dorian Concept.

Body/Head 25 February - Scheld’apen, Antwerp A deluxe experimental premiere as Kim Gordon and Bill Nace combine as Body/ Head. A world of Sonic Youth fans are trembling for a taste, but tonight, Antwerp, they’re all yours.

A Winged Victory for the Sullen sounds like a modern-day soundtrack to Twin Peaks. Read more on page 51.

Tycho 26 February - Trix, Antwerp Immersive sun-drenched electronics from the San Franciscan producer. Read more on page 51.

Youth Lagoon 27 February - Botanique, Brussels Trevor Powers is the 22-year-old Boise, Idaho native behind bedroom pop project Youth Lagoon. On his 2011 debut The Year of Hibernation, he sounds like a mentally stable Daniel Johnston, singing ridiculously sweet and sorrowful songs about shyly navigating one’s way through smalltown life and the uncertainties of coming of age. Despite his mousy persona and limited tools at hand, his flair for melody allows him to craft songs that often build into anthems and without fail pack an emotional wallop.

St Vincent 28 February - Botanique, Brussels While some might lump St. Vincent with various sterile NPR rock bands such as Arcade Fire and Sufjan Stevens, the characterisation seems superficial and unfairly dismissive. Even if her first two albums were a bit precious, Annie Clark don’t wanna be a cheerleader no more, and with Strange Mercy, she’s sullied the counterfeit naivete of Marry Me and ripped and torn away the lavish orchestral flourishes of Actor, and what’s left is her least affected and most empathetic record yet.
