Daca ajungi sambata seara in club Fabrica dupa ora 23 si abia a terminat de cantat prima trupa, inseamna ca inca se mai asteapta sosirea in valuri a publicului.  Cam asa a fost si  aseara, cand, in jur de 23 si un pic abia incepea sa cante trupa Sketch, care, ori de frica bacului de peste cateva luni, ori din experienta concertelor dese din ultima vreme, incep sa prinda un timid contur muzical. M-as bucura pentru ei ca motivul sa Continuare…

She has been challenging the audience since 70s and you either love her in a ‘coup de foudre’ style, either despise her passionately. There are no grey tones in an artistic relationship with her. Nevertheless, she is kindly offering you the opportunity to choose from an unconventional menu: spoken words, visuals, movies, visceral songs, historical collaborations with Nick Cave, Einstürzende Neubauten, Sonic Youth, Brian Eno, a caustic diary (‘Paradoxia: A Predator’s Diary’). If you missed her concert in 2010, don’t repeat the mistake in 2012 and book yourself a place in a front row, on 23rd of February, in Bucharest.

O  trupa al carei destin merita a fi urmarit si prima trupa australiana semnata de Sub Pop Records: Husky. Piesa “Woods” cu un vag parfum oniric (oferit mai mult de videoclip decat de compozitie) se poate descarca liber de aici.

28 ianuarie, 2012, a fost audio-vizual o zi rotunda, atat datorita cifrelor in sine, cat, mai ales, datorita concertului The Black Keys din Berlin. E dificil sa scrii imediat dupa eveniment despre cat de misto a fost, ca sa nu pari ca folosesti cuvinte  prea mari, in mod intentionat, pentru a-i convinge pe cei care nu au fost prezenti. Din fericire, si la mai bine de o saptamana de la concert, adjectivele raman grandioase: sublim, Continuare…

“Now we can have fun on stage… we understand all of the mechanics with people. Because we were working as only the two of us, so when you have a manager, a tour manager, an agent, musicians – you don’t really understand what’s happening. But now we understand the mechanics and so I can relax a bit more… But you never know if you will have a crowd every night” Olivia, The Dø
