JACK FUCKING TWIST- Fifteen Love - 7" - FIDEL BASTRO

click to enlarge Nice little biography by this duo here: Greg Davis (drums/vocals) is a rich former broker, Cindy McEnroe the widow of John McEnroe's dead brother. Being bored of the millionaires life, they decided to make music, and moved to Hamburg... The 4 songs on their EP (pressed in a limited edition onto white vinyl) are minimalistic Pop-Punk ditties, very reduced, but then again that's the special charm of their music! Except for the male vocal-parts, it reminds a lot of the FLAMINGO MASSACRES, or those girl-bands on and around the KILL ROCK STARS label in the 90s! www.jackfuckingtwist.net

JOE 4- Njegov Sin - LP - FIDEL BASTRO

click to enlarge First full album by this Croatian band! 10 songs of angular, fat and bass-heavy Noise-Rock, bouncing with the intensity of mating walruses. Recorded and mixed by Steve Albini, mastered by Bob Weston. So you can easily guess which band has mostly influenced their sound. http://joe4.bandcamp.com/music

JOHN & JOHNNY- s/t - LP - FIDEL BASTRO

click to enlarge 6 songs by Johnny King (singer of the HIGH QUALITY GIRLS and keyboarder with FROEBE). Brilliant Minimal-/Electronica-Pop, reminiscent of german artists like Andreas Dorau or DER PLAN! Don't know much (or anything at all) about John Bruninski, but his 5 tracks on the other side compliment Johnny’s side pretty well!

KIESGROUP- Eulen und Meerkatzen - CD / LP - FIDEL BASTRO

click to enlarge Neues Album der eigentümlich eigenwilligen Band aus Düsseldorf! Ein Sammelsurium an Sounds und Klängen, von Avant-Pop über Lounge-Jazz und Minimal-Synth bis zu Chanson-haftem (und allerhand mehr), untermalt die verschroben anarchische Lyrik des Sängers Andreas van der Wingen. Die Platte enthält 14 Songs und ist letztlich stilistisch nicht zu fassen. Vielleicht irgendwo zwischen Andreas Dorau, MUTTER und den GOLDENEN ZITRONEN... Mit Sicherheit lässt sich nur sagen, dass die Platte so seltsam anziehend ist, wie das Cover-Artwork abstossend hässlich ist. http://www.kiesgroup.de/

NEOPIT PILSKI- Wir/Ihr - LP - FIDEL BASTRO

click to enlarge Guitar-and-drums duo from Hamburg. Guitarist/singer Stefan Ivanov comes from Bulgaria, so the lyrics are sung in Bulgarian. It's raw and dissonant, but dynamic and tight Indie- resp. Noise-Rock. "Gently dissonant guitar music" (as they call it), in the vein of SONIC YOUTH. 10 songs, LP comes with download-code included. http://neopitpilski.bandcamp.com/
