Preview: the week ahead (23rd - 29th Jan)

There is literally nothing at this start of the week that we can recommend. But to make up for it, the end of the week looks wild. Yay!

The Sun and the Wolf at Bassy Cowboy Club: See my review from the other night. I am totally happy to give this another shot. Plus, I've been told that members of Crocodiles will be giving a guest performance. Yay!

Verity Susman and Marzipan Marzipan at Ausland: Verity Susman of Electrelane fame is playing solo this Thursday and I think that's going to be sweet. Meet me there!

Rocket Freudenthal and Sissters at Kater Holzig: Rocket Freudenthal = minimalist in-your-face punk with great German vocals. Some slower numbers, too. Oh yes, children, you'll enjoy this one! Sissters are our firm favourites and you know that by now.

Sunday is a tough one this week!
I Am Oak at hbc: We have featured the Dutch one-man-project I Am Oak before, and we'll do it again. It's very beautiful, slightly melancholic folk pop music that will make you feel warm inside. Beautiful vocals and instrumentation and perfect for this winter weather. For fans of Beirut.
Reggie Watts and Wiotch at Festsaal Kreuzberg: Reggie Watts, now here is an exciting evening at Festsaal! The Seattle based solo artist uses his own vocals (beat box and melodies) and a sample machine to create the instrumentation for his soul and funk dance numbers that are oh so much fun! Kind of if Tune-Yards was into Hot Chocolate, with a lot of humour, if you can imagine that. This is going to be a night of big hair and a lot of dancing!!

John Duncan, Bill Kouglias, John Wiese, Eli Keszler at NK: This is going to be a noisy electroacoustic experimental evening at NK. I saw Bill Kouglias playing as Family Battle Snake (review here) and really liked his dark ambient sounds. If you're into drony, creepy and from times to times a bit harsher noise stuff you should check the other artists out and head over to this show. You're not going to regret it and you'll definitely love John Wiese. There are going to be visual screenings starting at 7.30pm and the concert itself is supposed to start at 9pm sharp.
