We have been waiting for this for quite some time now, pianist/ composer Hauschka`s third album, out on Fatcat, and 9 of it`s tracks are accompanied by 12 piece string and wind ensemble. This is Hauschka at his best, and his composition is moody, dark, driving, intimate, sexier than ever. This is a must and we have been enjoying it tremendously since we have received our promo copy.


Kept Impulses Tour with Hauschka, Nancy Elizabeth & James Blackshaw, May 2010

April 10th, 2010

Performing collaboratively for the first time, prepared piano player Hauschka, 12-string guitarist James Blackshaw, and singer/songwriter Nancy Elizabeth play their beautifully matched music together in a contoured programme of solo and ensemble performances.

 We wrote about hauschka and Blackshow before (check archives), but it is the first time we mention Nancy Elizabeth

“Nancy Elizabeth (The Leaf Label) has that something special. The songs of this Northern English multi-instrumentalist with a beautifully unadorned voice are slowly burning their way into the life of those who fall for her deft way with atmospherics and heart tugging emotions. She sings extraordinarily magical yet honest songs and has that ability to move audiences into appreciative wonderment with her performances. Nancy has that unquestionable strength of conviction which when combined with her emotionally terse lyrics and lack of fluffiness makes for a singer that stands apart from her peers. 

Nancy’s long awaited second album ‘Wrought Iron’ is out this October on Leaf and is getting incredible reviews. She has also recently been recording with James Yorkston and Susumu Yokota as well as playing with Efterklang, Seth Lakeman, Tunng, and Rachel Unthank and The Winterset. Winning sets at Roskilde and Bestival over the summer warmed her to new fans. She has toured folk clubs, concert halls and cafes in Mexico, Spain, Manchester and beyond.”

GERMANY AT SXSW 2010: it’s wunderbar!

February 23rd, 2010

Wunderbar presents Lunch with the Germans, a first-ever music and culinary event, at SXSW 2010. Acquaint yourself with some of Germany’s best and brightest while sampling the country’s traditional and modern culinary delights. Finally, German music and food join the SXSW party, bringing you one stellar chance to network, dance, and chow down!  

Lunch with the Germans will take place from 12-3pm Thursday, March 18 at a lovely modern diner and nightclub on 6th Street (more info at the RSVP link below). Hayk Seirig and Phillip Patzig, the two gourmet chefs behind Berlin’s outdoor venue/gastropub Bar 25, will man the stoves, while staples in the underground house music scene will provide entertainment. Get Physical’s  DJ Heidi will be performing as well as Kompakt’s DJ Tobias Thomas and Matias Aguayo. Get your invitation at www.initiative-music.de/sxsw to ensure your place at this one-of-a-kind event!

Initiative Musik will be the official host of the event financed by the German Federal Minister of Economics and Technology. Initiative Musik is a funding agency set up by the German government to sustain the country’s music industry. Specializing in primarily Rock, Pop, and Jazz, the goal of agency is to promote the export of German music, new artists, and encourage cultural diversity with in the industry.  

The lunch is the first time localized German organizations are coming together to present some of the best talent they have to offer. C/o Pop is a Cologne -based organization that presents annual festivals and conferences dedicated to furthering contemporary pop culture of all varieties. ReeperbahnFestival is Hamburg‘s answer to unleashing creative energy: it houses performances, panels, and receptions. (And keep an eye out: Reeperbahn will also be sponsoring a barbeque and a Filter event!) Jazzahead! is a Bremen-based organization that presents jazz from all over the world with a focus on European jazz. It has established itself as the place to go  to meet important industry players and to gain insight into what’s happening in the scene. And, finally, Berlin Musik Week (with its trade fair Popkomm), the first of its kind to take place in September 2010.

Be sure to check out the wide range of German acts represented at this year’s SXSW. From soul to avant-garde experimentalism, there’s far more to the German music scene than their iconic electro (though, while we’re at it, there’s an impressive array of that, too…). At SXSW, a German Music Guide will be circulating, so keep an eye out for it and take full advantage of these great German artists! Here are a few highlights:

Niobe is Tomlab artist Yvonne Cornelius, a mainstay of the international experimental music scene for the last 15 years. Her music is a spirited interplay of classic and popular set pieces.

Missincat is Berlin-based songwriter Caterina Barbieri, whose minimal folk songs gained critical acclaim on her 2009 debut, “Back on my Feet.”

Matias Aguayo The native Chilean is a child of the Cologne electro-scene, and has released his EPs, remixes, and two full-lengths through electro label Kompakt. 

Malente After spending his youth doing hip hop and pop and achieving positive feedback, Malente turned towards electronic music with lasting success. 

Hauschka is Dusseldorf pianist and composer Volker Bertelmann, one of the most important contemporary figures of the national and international avant-garde music scene.
