Natural Information Society & Bitchin Bajas
Automaginary
The collaboration with Natural Information Society that led to »Automaginary« is a blessing for Bitchin Bajas. It’s as if they’ve let the stoned Genie out of the bong.

Al Cisneros
Toward Nazareth
There’s something mysterious about this record: Cisneros’ effortlessness and his cool attitude on the one hand and the implied significance and his overall precision on the other hand cancel each other out. Trying to figure out Al Cisneros isn’t easy.

Bitchin Bajas
Bitchitronics
Bitchin Bajas are defoliating their sounds until their ambient starts to breathe. Unfortunately, the rapid overuse of guitar- and flute-notes can come accross as somewhat out of place.

Tony Caro & John
Blue Clouds
Drag City is releasing rare material by an almost forgotten Psych-Folk-Band from the 1970s. It really is quite a hit!

Into The Waves
The battle between artist and world, between authenticity and fake, between irony and sincerity, between reviewer and text remains undecided.

Bonnie »Prince« Billy
Wolfroy Goes To Town
For years, Bonnie »Prince« Billy has been releasing his music on a constantly high level. His 21st record is no exception there. Nope, really, not at all.

Ty Segall
Goodbye Bread
Ty Segall is one of the most productive musicians in the Indie-Rock scene. Luckily, there are no signs of wear to be detected. Quite the opposite, as he proves on Goodbye Bread.
