The Berlin-based artist Lucy Kruger put together a collection of songs for the road. This is not a mixtape for the next roadtrip but one to gaze out of the window of a moving car, caught in motion but still. That melancholia of the in-between is the emotion that the artist's recent LP "Transit Tapes" evokes as well.
Australian songwriter Indigo Sparke released her wonderful debut album "Echo" in February 2021 and to celebrate its vinyl issue, NBHAP author Anna Stich got a chance to talk to her about what informs her music and how she translates her perception of the world into sound. The result is a detailed and insightful account of the present moment.
The 2020 holiday season will be a bit different than the last ones, a bit more lonely maybe for many of us or at least a bit more intimate. And maybe that's not the worst thing to happen in order to return to the core of the Christmas spirit. As always music can be a helpful ally in a time of despair and that's why we stocked up our moody festive playlist with great songs by some of your and our favourite artists. May this selection help you to get through this bleak winter time.
How do you keep an overview about the countless new releases in the world of music? Well, easier said than done but thank god the staff of NBHAP keeps an overview. In this column one from the team personnally reflects on the past four weeks and the music that matters during this time. Now it's the turn of our author Andreas Peters to ramble on about our favourite passion in the world.
