Super World Interview Time: What goes around comes around for Jeannel

We covered Jeannel’s first release “Mind Tricks” last year, now she is back with another fantastic song and video – the beautiful, reflective, multi-layered ballad  “Karma”.  It’s from her forthcoming debut EP ‘Love’ on Better Call Rob which was co-produced by Tamer Fahri (Dillon, Lafawnda) and Christian Prommer (Fauna Flash, Voom Voom). We were delighted when…

SWIT Sounds Abound #3

Gerry’s bonged off to Barcelona for the weekend to that Primavera Sound thing and I’ve been left here sniffing my own roses. Frankly, it’s how I like it, nobody saying “put the wine away”, “put the whiskey away”, “put the crack away”, put the….you get the picture. So I can honestly say I’ve been trying…

I do not like green eggs and ham I do not like them SAMT I am

SAMT – I wue Di / Geh Schleich Di Top bloke Ronnie Pinkau, from the beautiful and musically sizzling town of Augsburg, contacted us this week about a new release on his small but perfectly-formed label Kleine Untergrund Schallplatten. “I Wü Di” is a pretty direct lustful get over here now siren call. And who…

SWIT Premiere: Tom Wu – All You Want

Tom Wu – All You Want We are delighted to premiere the stream of professional provocateur Tom Wu’s new LP. “All You Want” (Cut Surface) is a frenetic, tantalizing trip through the dark underworld of Wu.

Colours Fly and The Catherines Appeal

The Catherines – Good Golly Goo I always thought it would be a good idea to combine throwaway sixties pop with some sparkling Felt-like guitar wizardry. It looks like The Catherines thought it was a good idea too. Check out “Good Golly Goo”, their lo-fi gem of a tune. It’s from their self-titled debut which…

Eat some chips, lick your lips and listen to Clay Hips

Clay Hips. The Bridge (A Song for Augsburg) “The Bridge (A Song for Augsburg)” is a wistful bittersweet ballad, a love song for a city, a fond farewell. I usually hate long goodbyes but in this case, I’ll make an exception. Isn’t it beautiful? Both Kenji and Andrew of The Clay Hips were key members…

Stony Sugarskull has goth it all

Stony Sugarskull – Butterflies As so the balloon returns to Berlin, where late at night under stormy skies, the wooziful, gothic sounds of Stony Sugarskull drift through the ether. As the absinthe takes hold butterflies and monkeys surround and uplift us. Hold out your arms Gerry, hold out…let me be mad, then, by all means!…

I’m sure that a magus* will build a temple to Vegas

Vegas – End of the World “End of the World” is the melodic, sleek, brooding debut by Vegas on Better Call Rob. Coming on like a lost eighties masterpiece, blending Propaganda, The Bad Seeds and much more it’s a pretty fine way to introduce yourself to the world and another great find for Robert Heitmann’s…

“CHESS” by ANIQO is no minor piece

ANIQO – CHESS “Chess” by ANIQO is a dark meditation on love and the games people play. Pared back, insistent and immediate, it inhabits the danger-zone between security and adventure and illustrates that less can be very much more when it comes to creating music that will live long in the memory. The track is…

Is there life on Marsmobil?

Marsmobil – Shadows Of The Inner Light It’s my first time hearing Marsmobil, and what an introduction – “Shadows Of The Inner Light” is a masterclass in songcraft, combining electronics, sci-fi, prog and dance into a very alluring whole. The vocals with (I think) Amber Lin are sublime. The tune worms it’s way into your…
