Berlin : Launch x Tickets

07:25 AM

We already recommended the new music video documentary website Noisey in March. By now enriched with international big names such as Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti or Mogwai and more German acts, including OCCVLTA, Modern Pets, Nothing and TUSQ, the project hosts its official German launch party this Thursday at Berlin’s Tape Club. Besides the obligatory, yet secret special guest, Munk is part of the bill. Recently Mathias Modica was busy keeping Munich right there he re-installed it with his label Gomma, on the world map of music, through releasing his third full-length record The Bird And The Beat. And he did perform well.

To his side, Noisey has put the fresh band Kraftklub. Bluntly playing with both, the clichĂ©s of her East-German home base, the uncrowned anti-beauty-queen  Karl-Marx-City Chemnitz, and the early criticism they had to face, they spent the last year winkingly working on becoming the most promising live band. “Unsere Eltern kiffen mehr als wir./ Wie soll man da rebellieren?/ Egal, wo wir hinkommen,/ unsere Eltern waren schon eher hier,” (Our parents take more than us./ How should one revolt?/ Wherever we go/ our parents were here before.) they sing in “Zu Jung” of their EP Adonis Maximus, revealing the current shift in generation conflicts similar to the British TV series Skins. The hip hop rock hybrid also declares the starving indie disco dead and it’s not only the uniform white Collage clothing, which reminds us of the young Hives. But of course Kraftklub have already satirised this comparison in another song of them. You can watch the first part of their Noisey video portrait below and the further four here.

Tickets are availabel only through competitions, for instance ours. Win 2×2 by leaving a comment below until Thursday noon. Good look!

After founding the Creators Project and the Motherboard together, the VICE network and its partner firms Intel and DELL have now launched new media portal Noisey devotes itself to the live music experience, offering a half-documentary mixture of high-quality (not Youtube-jiterry) shots from the gig and background interviews with the protagonists and their environment. The focus lays on young bands and artists from altogether elven countries (from the US to China) including the likes of Das Racist, Yuck or Pictureplane.

Also featured are London’s Factory Floor, who’ll headline the for now last warehouse event by Dollop in town tonight. JD Twitch from Optimo will deejay afterwards. Watch the first of five videos on the band below and the rest over at Noisey. Also read an interview we recently did with Sam Lawrence, the man behind Dollop, here.
