Rants about Spotify and their questionable practices as the top dog of the streaming industry have become an established tradition of pop-cultural criticism, but rarely do comments lead to action. Following up on the Joe Rogan conflict with the Swedish company, NBHAP co-head Andreas caught up with musician and activist Joel Jerome from the "Union Of Musicians And Allied Workers" to find out more on the organisation and how to get involved.
There is life beyond all the doom and gloom. And it’s yours. In a perfectly time release stunt, British guitar icons Foals reinvent themselves by stripping down their worn-out formula and release a life-embracing record that celebrates moments of dance and togetherness, following the two-year long pandemic break. It’s the right sound for much needed moments of relief and also the start of a new chapter for the band who’s now a trio. NBHAP’s Norman Fleischer met with the group at their recent tour stop in Berlin.
The Greek-Sudanese artist Marina Satti is driven to explores cultures and ways of exchange through her language: music.

O'Brien's debut "Time Bend and Break the Bower" veils itself in the cloak of her multi-layered artistry. We caught up with the artist to see what's underneath.
