Fifty years after the legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix died his music and message are far from obsolete. Here is an argument by longtime fan and NBHAP Editor Liv Toerkell on why you should listen to the music the incredible artist left behind.
Today is the eleventh of September – a date engrained in most of the people’s memories. 9/11 lies almost twenty years in the past now, yet many remain scarred by the horrific incident that shook the very foundations of New York City. A city crumbling to pieces right in front of your eyes is a sight you won’t forget for the rest of your life. The musicians Tobias Preisig and Lukasz Polowczyk both witnessed the Twin Towers collapse – an experience that reflects into the music of the new project Aint About Me.
The middle of the night is a mystical time. It is somehow not really yesterday, not today anymore, and not tomorrow yet. In this vacuum, the way we view the world often changes to a more somber philosophical look on things. In this fourth edition of Late Night Talks, the Berlin-based singer and songwriter Novaa met up with Editor Liv Toerkell on a late summer evening.
Out of expectations, painful misunderstandings, and disappointment NYLE crafts something beautiful. NBHAP is premiering "All We Start" today, the first single from her forthcoming debut EP "where to hide".
We are launching a new playlist in collaboration with the nomadic future folk duo dumama+kechou. Beyond Borders celebrates the diversity of musical influences and aims to amplify voices of artists who are often marginalized by the mainstream Western-centric industry. Join us in actively working against these structures in place by decolonizing and broadening our understanding of music.
Have you met the buzzing new queen of German wave pop already? Well, it's about time to follow the "Wanderratte" on her unstoppable journey in our newcomer playlist, along with freshly released tracks by exciting new artists like Girl Friday, Joesef, Aime Simone, Brijean, LMNL and more.
Soko is sitting in front of the camera in her Los Angeles home. The French artist is wearing plaid sweatpants and a college-style shirt. Even though it is 9am only on the American west coast, she seems to be more awake than me in early-evening Berlin. Soko, Stéphanie Sokolinski, laughs into the camera and patiently answers my questions about her third record "Feel Feelings".
The Amsterdam-based duo Feng Suave just released the follow-up to their 2017 self-titled debut. We spoke to the band about the EP "Warping Youth", their musical aspirations, and making furniture in Italy.
Three musicians, a barn, and a whole lot of cows - what do you get? Well, you are probably familiar with the outcome already. Those three are the elements that made the last Khruangbin records happen, so why mix up a recipe for success? The band’s record 'Mordechai' was written in the band’s usual writing spot in the countryside. It's the first time that one of their record features more vocals than instrumental tracks, so needless to say our author Liv had to phone up the Texan group.
