Even if you don't speak French, there is a good chance that the word "Dépaysé" echoes back a certain sensation of melancholy and longing. By choosing it as the album title for his latest musical output, Ahmed Gallab alias Sinkane picked a word that perfectly summed up his feelings while working on new music trying to figure out his place in this world and connecting with himself even more. Dépaysé meaning 'to be removed from one’s habitual surroundings'.
With headliners such as Charli XCX, Rosalia or Miley Cyrus, this year’s Primavera Festival proved that 50/50 lineups are possibly and that they should be the new standard in booking business.

Kate Tempest – like the stormy weather, like the Shakespearian drama.

When I say Blues, a vivid image probably crosses your mind: somewhere in the deep South of the United States, a man, an acoustic guitar that has had better days, a scarcely lit bar around midnight, a half-empty glass of whiskey. But the genre is much more relevant than just a moody soundtrack to a post-breakup movie scene. We met the Blues Duo Larkin Poe, who shatter all clichés with fierce girl power and a contemporary twist to playing the Blues.

16 years after its initial release the band's first EP gets a proper vinyl edition, along with B-Sides and previously unreleased music. NBHAP head and longtime Tiger Lou lover Norman caught up with mastermind Rasmus Kellerman to talk about nostalgia, new beginnings and finding your place in life.
In the 21st century we don’t just live in the age of fast food, fast fashion but also in the age of fast music. The songs on the radio blend into one, way too easily digestible, blob of auto tunes and synthesizers. But some still do it right. We met the British electronica four piece HÆLOS, who aren’t just wizards of the 'buttons and wires' but also classically trained musicians with a passion to make music meaningful again.
Get your eyeliner, lipstick and scrubby hairstyle ready, kids!
