LOVE MACHINE
Düsseldorf DE, Unique
Do, 13-09-18 
Bumann & Sohn, Köln
Einlass 19:00, Beginn 20:00

Mit einer kosmischen Mischung aus Psychedelik, Americana und Krautrock hypnotisiert die 5-köpfige Formation aus Düsseldorf auf ihrem zweiten Album 'Times To Come' und liefert damit 'die notwendige Antwort auf den Vorwurf, dass es in Düsseldorf zwischen der avantgardistischen Electronica des Salon des Amateurs und dem breitbeinigen, schweißgebadeten Rock weißer Männer keine musikalische Nische gebe.' (Intro)

LITHICS
Portland US, Kill Rockstars
Fr, 14-9-18 
King Georg, Köln
Einlass 20:00, Beginn 21:00

Lithics exist in a nervous fragmented world, a propulsive futuristic hell where anything can be consumed at any time, where any sound from any era can be conjured and reproduced and yet most of what we are stuck with seems like a trite reproduction of a sentiment long lost. Lithics fight this impossible dreary reality with a bold minimalist vision, “Can I be myself?” A stern danceable sound that summons cut up snapshots of Su Tissue and Mark E Smith, an imagined landscape where Captain Beefheart hits that 99 Records “Too Many Creeps” beat.

LA LUZ 
Los Angeles US, Hardly Art
Mo, 01-10-18
Bumann & Sohn, Köln
Einlass 19Uhr, Beginn 20Uhr

Support: PEGGY SUE
Brighton UK, Wichita

Los Angeles wird oft als die "Traumfabrik" beschrieben - sowohl als Mekka von Träumern, die ihre langgehegten Sehnsüchte verfolgen als auch als Topographie der Gegensätze: zauberhafte orange Sonnenuntergänge, die vom Smog eingerahmt werden; hippieske Spiritisten, die auf geizige Narzisten treffen; Alleen aus pittoresken Palmen, die mit den bunten Werbetafeln um die Aufmerksamkeit der Pendler buhlen. Vor diesem Hintergrund haben La Luz ihr drittes Studioalbum ,Floating Features" fertiggestellt.

EARTHEATER
New York City US, PAN
Mi, 17-10-18 
Bumann & Sohn, Köln
Einlass 19:00, Beginn 20:00

Eartheater aka Queens based artist Alexandra Drewchin distills foley-filled digital production, a three-octave vocal range, and classical composition into works suspended between obsessively detailed sonic tapestries and almost recklessly romantic and gestural electronica. A body of viscerally emotive live performance stands alongside her recorded output, realized by her fearless physical investment and gut-wrenching vocal sincerity. 'All artistic gestures feel connected in her world: music, dance, poetry, film, stripped of conceptual baggage and made accessible, full of feeling and expression built on a pounding intellect.' – The Wire 'Pokes critically and poetically at societal systems, social expectations, and sonic conventions.' – The Fader

MOURN
Barcelona ES, Captured Tracks
So, 28-10-18
Bumann & Sohn, Köln
Einlass 19Uhr, Beginn 20Uhr

Catalonian quartet Mourn stormed onto the scene in 2014 with their self-titled debut - a work of angular indie rock and pointed lyricism delivered with confidence well beyond their teenage years. With seemingly endless opportunities in front of them, MOURN found themselves caught in a legal dispute with their former Spanish label. Now, only just recently freed from their legal binds, Mourn is back in full force to share their 3rd full-length album, Sorpresa Familia.

ART FEYNMAN
Los Angeles US, Western Vinyl
Di, 06-11-18 
Bumann & Sohn, Köln
Einlass 19:00, Beginn 20:00

'do my synthesizers know when I'm asleep? Does the floor creep beneath my feet?'

There is a calm, disciplined pocket to be felt in everything California musician Art Feynman does; krautrock slink, staccato bounce, and pentatonic bursts of Nigerian Highlife fuzz pour on the temporal canvas with unquestionable ease, never falling in the wrong place. Even more admirable is that his "canvas" is a four-track tape recorder, and that his debut album 'Blast Off Through the Wicker' features no loops or drum machines despite its aesthetically faithful motorik and afrobeat underpinnings. Feynman conjures the spacey tenderness of Arthur Russell inventively and respectfully, without adopting their muse's palette wholesale.

Gestartet als Projekt, um einen neuen Sound auszuprobieren, sind The KVB inzwischen bei Invada untergekommen, dem Label von Geoff Barrow. Gemeinsam mit dem Portishead-Mastermind, das ihnen sein Studio zur Verfügung gestellt hat, verfeinert das Duo stetig seinen Sound. Die Musik von The KVB ist eine Mélange noire aus Postpunk und Shoegaze. Die Synth-Basslines, der omnipräsente Reverb-Effekt und die treibenden Beats rufen große Namen ab, wie Joy Division, The House of Love oder Jesus and Mary Chain.

Special Guest: SEA MOYA Montreal CA, Majestic Casual

'Klaus Johann Grobe crafts organically-created kosmische grooves that put a fresh spin on the groundbreaking sounds that came out of West Germany in the 1970s, an era that saw a canon of seminal releases by Can, Cluster and Faust amongst others.' - The Quietus  Sea Moya are know for 'deeply spacious grooves that touch on afrobeat and krautrock, with production techniques that will be familiar to fans of blippy electrectronic funk, and are equal parts krautrock and psych.' - The Guardian

MARTIN KOHLSTEDT
Weimar DE, Edition Kohlstedt
Do, 22-11-18 
Kulturkirche, Köln
Einlass 19Uhr, Beginn 20Uhr

Zwischen rasenden Klavierschlägen und reißenden Synthieflächen ist das Publikum mit gefordert, denn Kohlstedt präsentiert keinen in Klassik und Jazz gekleideten Pop, sondern anspruchsvolle Rituale des Kontemplierens, der Extase oder - sogar das ist möglich - des Scheiterns. Eingängige Melodien und der Blick für die Schönheit im Einfachen gehen dennoch nicht verloren, schließlich zieht er aus voller Überzeugung seinen Bauch dem Kopf vor.

THE HOLYDRUG COUPLE
Santiago CHL, Sacred Bones
So, 25-11-18 
Bumann & Sohn, Köln
Einlass 19Uhr, Beginn 20Uhr


It was 10 years ago, in a house on the outskirts of Santiago, Chile, that Ives Sepúlveda Minho and Manuel Parra started playing music together, and The Holydrug Couple was effectively born. A decade later, they’ve made 'Hyper Super Mega', an album that represents the culmination of everything they’ve learned in their years as a band. If 'Hyper Super Mega' feels like a classic pop record, that’s because Sepúlveda and Parra spent much of the recording process thinking about the classic pop records of the ’60s and ’70s. Masterpieces by bands like The Beatles, The Beach Boys, and Fleetwood Mac were all reference points, not always explicitly in sound, but certainly in spirit.
