Kismet on tour with Friska Viljor

Good things happening in Germany. A little while ago we told you about the We vs. Death album getting a re-release on vinyl by the sinnbus-crew. But – skanks as we are – no one man can please us! So now we’re hooking up with yet another German partner. Midsummer Records will release Kismet’s debut album Hiatus on february 5th in Germany/Switzerland/Austria, with distribution being done by Cargo.

To promote their release Kismet will hit the road next week as opening act for Friska Viljor in Germany and Switzerland. Check them dates, boy!

Vette Analoge Shit! w/ Railcars, Eklin & Neon Rainbows

Correct us if we’re wrong, but we seems to be really good at this! Thao taught us some serious songwriting skills not to mention fingerpicking! Still psyched, we are heading towards the next edition of Vette Analoge Shit with Railcars, Neon Rainbows and Eklin. Do your homework!

Friday February 5th
(yet another edition of Vette Analoge Shit!)

Railcars (us)

And then there was Railcars, who recorded its first 7″ in the Kitchen of Xiu Xiu frontman Jamie Stewart. Railcars is an attempt to bring the images that have haunted Aria’s mind to life using drum boxes, synths, and noise pedals with sentiments recreated in lyrical form. The current four member line up for Railcars live performances was established by Jalali before touring with Handsome Furs in April 2008. Railcars can be compared to Jamie Stewards side project Former Ghosts, Wavves with a touch of Animal Collective. Ain’t that fresh!
listen to some tunes here!

Neon Rainbows

Straight forward rock comes from the hand of Neon Rainbows. These fellows gained quite some fame under the name of Fever dream. Since it’s not up to us to pull old cows out of the ditch we compare them with Les Savy Fav and Cursive.
listen to some tunes here!


Last and least would be Eklin, formally known as Adept. About the ‘least’ thing we were kidding, Duh! These nice fellas bring you experimental electronics packed with oppressive and exceptionally dark energy! Lately they’ve added a Blonde Reddish girly person to their line up who treats eyes and ears…out of heressss!

Start: 21:00
Damage:  €7,00
Location: dB’s studio, CAB-Rondom 100, Utrecht
