From the depths of German Krautrock comes the sixth edition of the Synästhesie Festival. Backed by the beloved local music hot spot – the 8MM bar, which already put artists like Gurr and Sofia Portanet on our radar – the festival unites Berlin’s favorites alongside international acts. Needless to say, organizing a large indoor festival ahead of another wave of Covid in Germany, is quite the task. Yet, after what felt like a dozen documents to scan – vaccinated and additionally tested – festival-goers were invited into the industrial chambers of the Kesselhaus once again.
Beloved Berlin-based musician Laura Carbone got the chance to curate and organize a small festival at Festsaal Kreuzberg. From poetry readings to indie rock, Cosmic Dreaming rounds up a circle of local artists playing together for the first time. NBHAP author Liv Toerkell spoke to the musician before the show about the experience of organizing an event and returning to the stage.
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.
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. To break out of the dullness of press appointments, the singer Lucy Kruger opened up her home to NBHAP editor Liv Toerkell in our second segment of Late Night Talks.
