M:Soundtrack takes you in to Summer with this Music!….

M:SOUNDTRACK presents ♥ : THURSDAY 10.06.2010 @ 9 p.m. in SCHOKOLADEN with the lovely Aimee Argote a.k.a DES ARK (Philadelphia/US) + AL BURIAN (Bln/BurnCollector/Milemarker)

DES ARK – Aimee Argotes // What we are talking about is an outstanding, incredibly awesome, heartfelt and powerful artist: If you take “these” two, three PJ Harvey records, early Cat Power, the Riot Grrl movement and a shiny full moon night on a parking deck above the city, imagine a plot to a roadmovie, then you will get a slight idea of how intense DES ARK / Aimee Argote is … intense and beautiful. Aimee Argote’s work is backwoods hippy stuff that is profane and vulgar as any lady has ever been. Her compositions are organic songs that are driven by her soulful voice holding strongly to its southern accent and are driven by acoustic guitars and pianos. If it was not for the grotesquely vulgar and overtly bi-sexual nature of her songs, they would be among the most gorgeous ever compose.

During the last decade, Aimée Argote has had more bands called Des Ark than she has albums under that name. She’s howled and jerked in sweaty houses and rock clubs, backed by a drummer, another drummer, yet another drummer and a second guitarist, and a small symphony. She’s brought big crowds to a whisper with nothing but her voice and a banjo or a tiny guitar that kept slipping out of tune. But, a stack of radio sessions aside, Des Ark only has one LP, 2005’s Loose Lips Sink Ships (produced by J. Mascis), and a collaborative split LP, 2007’s Battle of the Beards, to call its own. Don’t Rock the Boat, Sink the Fucker – the band’s brilliant second new LP, due this summer on Lovitt Records—makes up for the time lag and the lost members.  LISTEN:: http://www.myspace.com/desark

Wie sagte doch neulich Al Burian von Milemarker über sie: “Aimee ist eine Frau die ihre Gitarre benutzt um ihre bösen Geister auszuschütten.“ Da musste ich lachen und meinte das es so schlimm ja wohlhoffentlich nicht kommen wird.

AL BURIAN // Writer, Cartoonist, Lunatic and Enfant Terrible of the Northamerican Punk Scene, Writer of Burn Collector, Contributor of Punk Planet, Musician in bands like Milemarker, Challenger, Hellbender, Sterling, Nest of Ice, is serving you a mix of poetry, reading essays and short stories, portraying his and peoples daily struggle, playing songs and scaring people in the finest way of art.  LISTEN:: http://www.myspace.com/alburian

M:SOUNDTRACK presents ♥ : THURSDAY 17.06.2010 @ 9 p.m. in Schokoladen :: with DEAD WESTERN (US/Discorporate Records/Altin Village & Mine) + ACHTUNG HANS (Bln)

DEAD WESTERN // “When Dead Western’s Soften Your Screams Into Sings hit the mailbox my first thought was how lovely the sleeve looked, then turning over to see a photo of actual naked modern hippies in a forest (one of which was climbing a tree) I immediately thought I had this whole deal figured out. Well, it took me a good couple minutes to figure out what speed this thing played at, and when I did discovered this thing to be a real treasure outta left field. Fragile instrumentation, heartfelt songs, but a truly alien voice delivering what I can only describe to be what you’d expect Peter Jefferies in the persona of the Pink Panther to be, or something similar. Woozy, deep, resonant bass vox wobbling around the grooves here which I now know belong to Sacramento musican/artist fixture Troy Mighty who I remember from the free jazz-leaning noiseniks Antennas Erupt. The variety of instrumentation, while being minimal, is also pretty rich in emotion.” [Brian Turner, WFMU, from Beware of the Blog] LISTEN:: http://www.myspace.com/soundsofloveandspace

ACHTUNG HANS // You know that kind of “Partridge Family”, Sixties, free love, sing songs for fun and forget about the money type of vibe? Yeah. That’s basically What I heard with Achtung Hans. —- Mf David Deery

THE WURST SOUNDTRACK presents with great pleasure on 20th of June, 2010 @ 9 p.m. in LOVELITE Berlin.::  ARIEL PINK’S HAUNTED GRAFFITTI (US) + Opening act GELBART

Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti // are set to take their quite-possibly-drug-fueled freak show on the road in support of upcoming album Before Today, which comes out June 8 via 4AD. The album features Best New Track “Round and Round”, which is currently battling The-Dream and T.I.’s “F.I.L.A.” for spring jam supremacy in Pitchfork’s Brooklyn office.

“this acid fried 8-track recording by this odd newcomer to Animal Collective’s Paw Tracks label is one of the most wonderfully skewed takes on classic pop you’re likely to hear.”
– All Music Guide

Ariel Pink ist ein Phänomen. Seit seinen ersten Homerecording-Sessions um das Jahr 1996 hat der in Los Angeles lebende Musiker und Künstler unzählige Singles, EPs und Alben veröffentlicht. Zunächst erschienen diese als selbst kopierte Cassetten und CD-Rs, später dann auf Paw Tracks, dem bandeigenen Label von Animal Collective, das bis dahin nur Platten der Soloprojekte ihrer Mitglieder herausgebracht hatte. Hier wurden einige seiner bis zu diesem Zeitpunkt knapp 500 entstandenen Songs wiederveröffentlicht. Dass es sich dabei nicht um Neuaufnahmen handelt ist insofern interessant, als dass Ariel Pink noch bis in die jüngste Vergangenheit seinen exzentrischen Weirdo-Glamour-Pop konsequent weiter im Homerecording-Verfahren produziert hat – mit den entsprechenden akustischen Konsequenzen. Jede Ariel Pink-Aufnahme klang bis dato in etwa so wie der imaginäre Soundtrack zu einer Sequenz aus einem 70er-Jahre B-Movie-Musical voller Aliens und Ninja-Kämpfer, abgespielt von einem uralten VHS- Tape auf einem noch älteren Videorekorder. Diese Herangehensweise sowie seine unberechenbaren Live- Shows haben Ariel Pink über die Jahre nicht nur den Ruf eines verschrobenen Exzentrikers, sondern auch eine ergebene Anhängerschaft beschert.

2  special days this week from M:SOUNDTRACK

M:SOUNDTRACK goes Münich ♥ : WEDNESDAY am 23.06.2010 @ 9 p.m. im Schokoladen :: L’EGOJAZZ (Münich) + ANGELA AUX (Münich)

L’EGOJAZZ // basteln mit Instrumenten und Geräten. Der Name ist Programm: die Bausteine Musik, Visualkunst und Tanzperformance fügen sich zum schrägsten Feuerwerk der Hypermoderne. Mit ihrem extrem tanzbaren Mix aus Elektrofunk, Indierock und Triphop zaubern Angela Aux, Franz Spencer und Rene Vaplue einen Kracher nach dem anderen aus dem Hut. Mit analoger und digitaler Klangbastelei wird neben experimentellen Improvisationsparts eine Mischung aus Mitt-90erHipHop und Hippierock fabriziert, die ungefähr genau die Mitte zwischen BeastieBoys, DaftPunk und Console trifft. Dazu veranstalten die Visualists von Kon.txt ein multimediales Gewitter aus Videosequenzen und Filmschleifen. Gemeinsam mit dem wundersamen Tanzperformer E.W., wurden seit Ende 2005 in Konzerten von Wien bis Frankfurt alle denkbaren Locations zum überkochen gebracht. Im November erscheint auf RedCanRecords eine Vinylsingle von L’egojazz.
LISTEN:: http://www.myspace.com/legojazz // http://legojazz.net/

ANGELA AUX // is a bird on a wire. in future days he could have been a sailor either/or a cook. mainly he’s up for folk, krautrock and experimental music, somewhere among parties all tomorrows never got to know. angela aux released a free album on laridae and a single with his electro-kraut-funk-band l’egojazz in 2009. when the ship comes around he’ll be counting speech bubbles somewhere out in the forcefields. who could win a rabbit while living on a dirty road all of his life? we need someone or something new: the fear of error is error itself.

M:SOUNDTRACK presents ♥ : THURSDAY 24.06.2010 @ 9 p.m. in Schokoladen :: Monsieur Mo Rio (D) Record Release + Latin & Greek (D) + special guest Tim Gane / Stereolab

The Sun Express – Record Release Party

MONSIEUR MO RIO// Beflügelt von der sanften Durchschlagskraft des Sunshine Pops (The Association, The Beach Boys, Harpers Bizarre, The Left Banke) komponiert der Sänger, Multiinstrumentalist und Produzent seine persönliche soft psychedelische Version des Sounds jener Tage. Mit barocken Melodiebögen und exquisiten Arrangements reiht er sich in die gelungensten aktuellen Interpretationen des Genres ein, ohne sich hinten anstellen zu müssen. Sein – nach 2 frankophilen Alben – englischsprachiges Debut, „The Sun Express“ (Fable Records, 2010) besticht durch seine sentimentale Raffinesse und das imposante Klangbild. Einschlägige Plattenlabels hielten sein neues Album für eine unentdeckte Perle aus den 60er Jahren. Wir halten es für ein Geschenk des Himmels, von einem rätselhaften Freund überbracht. Bei seinen Liveauftritten erwartet uns ein heruntergefahrener Band-Sound. Mit Bass, Gitarre, Schlagzeug, Orgel und Gesang beweist er uns, dass die komplexe Magie seiner ornamentalen Kompositionen auch in dieser reduzierten Variante, die Hörer zu verzaubern vermögen.

In an era when “variety of sound” means a flip of the radio dial and then a burst of blasé melodies, pretty MONSIEUR MO RIO has emerged with his fascinating oeuvre. As you listen to his music, you will hear and experience the exciting, warm aural magnificence that is MONSIEUR MO RIO. With influences ranging from swinging baroque pop to bossa nova, his songs will remind you of summer, spring smells, and a love that will be. And while we applaud the result of this musical journey through MONSIEUR’s mind, we must not forget that this chèr ami was not only the author, conductor, main musician, and singer on this album, he also was its engineer.

„Locker-leicht klingt der Sound von Mo Rio und seiner Band. Das ist sophisticated und verspielt“, wie es die Stuttgarter Nachrichten formulierten, nachdem sie an einem seiner raren Konzerte beiwohnen durften. LISTEN:: http://www.myspace.com/monsieurmorio

LATIN & GREEK // Actually there could be two different texts printed here. Because Latin & Greek are two bands in one and their album In the field could be regarded as a Split Album. On the one hand there is this dazzling Pop act with songs penned by Simon Fröhlich (Latin). Hamburg seems to be a waterfront of Glasgow here. People dance in bars to hits like Smile and Simpleton or watch the cargo ships at the harbour listening to Complaint. With sophisticated instrumentation, always airy and imaginative arranged, the recordings breathe a sunny urban esprit. On the other hand there is this voice. This voice by Cordelia Klöppel (Greek), that affects directly, that takes hold of you. Her songs are compelling expressive and at the same time quietly confident and classical. Like a deep clear mountain lake finally beheld after an exhausting upsurge. It dispreads in front of your eyes, immaculate, breathtaking beautiful. Resting at its shore the endless tranquility absorbs you. Both Latin as well as Greek certainly would have recorded great solo records, but its the combination that makes this project brilliant. It oscillates between two counterpoints, the playful and the classic, the urban and the natural. Together they define a new field, which they adjourn, in which they enfold freely and create their particular bipolar sound. So because Latin and Greek complement one another so wonderfully the album In the field is the soundtrack of this years Indian summer. LISTEN:: http://www.myspace.com/latinandgreek
