OFF Festival Katowice 2013: From Solange to Fucked Up

OFF Festival Katowice 2013: From Solange to Fucked UpDreamlike singers, hardcore emissions, electronic trances, psychedelic wipeouts, and… the one and only Zbigniew Wodecki. Everything is possible at OFF. Here’s the next batch of artists that will perform at this year’s festival – hold on tight!

It’s no wonder that she’s often compared to her older sister, some even call her – without a hint of malice ? the „Beyoncé of indie music“, but you just need to open your eyes and ears to understand the Solange is a mature and independent artist. After two good LPs released by Interscope, she dazzled both critics and audiences with her EP called True, produced by Dev Hynes (who co-authored multiple songs with the likes of Florence and the Machine and The Chemical Brothers) and released under Terrible Records, a record label established by Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor. It’s pop music, with clear references to the sounds of the 80s, but with its own distinct personality and quality. Join us in dancing to the beat!

Zbigniew Wodecki with Mitch & Mitch Orchestra and Choir
At this year’s OFF Festival, the one, the only, the legendary Zbigniew Wodecki himself will perform his iconic 1976 debut album – called Zbigniew Wodecki, of course. The titan of local venues scattered along the Vistula will be joined on stage by Mitch&Mitch, the most foreign band to ever form in Poland, whose members are hard at work making the music sound exactly as it did on the album, but better. For this special occasion an organist, a string quartet, and a two-person choir will be added to the Mitch&Mitch roster which already boasts nine members. That already tells you that they will be performing at the festival’s biggest stage, as no other venue would accommodate that kind of ensemble.

Marc Houle reveals new band project „La Folie“

Marc Houle reveals new band project "La Folie"La Folie will debut their nocturnal synth pop at Berlin’s Berghain Kantine on Wednesday June 5, 2013. A decade of musicianship, a diary full of heartbreak, and a chance encounter in Berlin preceded the birth of this project from Marc Houle and Joaquim dos Santos

In both name and mood, the band look to ‘la folie’, the French phrase that describes the madness of love when one is madly in love. Theirs is a powerful type of pop music juxtaposition, made for uneasy easy listening. Joaquim and new live member Clelia Cantoro become stylized synth-pop automatons as their voices blend, echo and confront each other, while Marc draws lush shades of light and shadows from his orchestra of synthesizers.

La Folie’s lyrical themes are universal, but the band has mostly existed as a secret project. La Folie began when Marc and Joaquim met through mutual friends and a mutual love of music ten years ago in Windsor, Canada. Fueled by Marc’s affinity for production and Joaquim’s anti-love songs, the two amassed a store of secret recordings that they crafted just for themselves.

Electro pop from Northern Sweden: THE KOO KOOS release debut single!

Electro pop from Northern Sweden: THE KOO KOOS release debut single!One sugar chocked Hello Kitty, one My Little Pony with manufacturing defectives and one Sleeping Beauty waking up on the wrong side. That’s how Umeå, Sweden, based The Koo Koos likes to describe themselves. This colourful trio is about to release their first album – „Love And Pain“ – on May 18th. They make music about what’s important in life: love and pain.  

Obviously they have their own manifest: „We like big gestures and everything that’s too much. We’re always in your face. We don’t conform. We’re the noisy and borderless teenager. We’re the spectacle you’d like to unleash. We give it all. And we love it.“

The album „Love and Pain“ is recorded by The Koo Koos in their own studio, but was mixed and mastered by Pell Henricsson at the Tonteknik Studios in Umeå.  The album is released on the band’s own label Lucky Star Music.

The first single, „Love and Pain“ is released worldwide!

OFF Festival Katowice 2013: Musical Experiments by Stephen O’Malley

OFF Festival Katowice 2013: Musical Experiments by Stephen O'MalleySpring is finally here, the flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping: it’s the perfect time to announce that Stephen O’Malley, whom you may know from such projects as Sunn O))), KTL, and Khanate, will be curating one whole day at this year’s Experimental Stage.

Stephen O’Malley is no stranger to any music fan brave enough to venture into the borderlands of extreme metal and avant garde. The artists he selects during his one-day stint as Experimental Stage curator should come as a surprise to no one. The concerts themselves, on the other hand, might come as quite a shock to many.

The curator of the Experimental Stage will make an appearance himself, naturally, performing in Katowice with the project known as KTL, in which he is joined by Vienna-based artist Peter Rehberg. The duo have spent the last six years and five records searching for disharmony in the kinds of sounds that unite fans of Fennesz, Merzbow, and Sunn O))). KTL melds the genres of drone, dark ambient, and noise into a new, unpleasantly majestic and disturbingly palatable form. You might leave this concert a different person.
