Following their global stardom, the three members of The xx started venturing into exciting solo activities in the early 2020s. Romy Madley-Croft's journey is a truly personal story of biographic emancipation told in musical form – including massive trance pads, pumping beats and the familiar sensitive songwriting. In the new edition of “Electronic Empathy” Norman Fleischer discusses these themes with the artist.
Cleverly timed nostalgia, a true second coming or just pure coincidence? Some of the most loved indie rock groups from the golden heydays of the early 21st century are set to return with new records this year. NBHAP head and original ‘survivor’ of the indie scene, Norman Fleischer, gives an overview of what to expect in the next months.
As this decade is approaching its end it is time for a little reflection on all the great music we experienced over the course of it. Of course, this is NOT an ultimate and universal Top 100 list. It simply can't be but these are the songs you should definitely give a spin before the decade is over. The Top 25 tunes include classics by Tame Impala, Bon Iver, Robyn, M83, Lorde, James Blake and more.
Ten years of music, ten personal stories. The writers of NBHAP are given the opportunity to resume about the records that excited them the most during the past decade. This is a subjective reflection rather than an ultimate conclusion. This time long time editor Miriam Wallbaum presents you her reflections on the past years.
Now, that X clearly marked the spot. In August 2009 a record arrived that is already considered a modern masterpiece. Only now we realize how much it influenced one generation on multiple levels. Time for a reflective walk down memory lane.
Although this decade isn't entirely over yet we still like to already take a look back on its musical highlight. And especially the independent music scene seems to fully freed itself from any limitations and boundaries during these ten years, resulting in quite some memorable musical moments we'd like to share with you.
The beloved open air event in Germany delivers yet another outstanding line-up including The xx, Florence + The Machine, Fever Ray, Jon Hopkins, Tune-Yards, Tyler, The Creator, Cigarettes After Sex, Little Dragon and many more. Time to raise excitement with a really special mixtape.
