Golden Diskó Ship has been Theresa Stroetges‘ solo project since 2010. Experimental, electroacoustic audiovisual pop music.
„Golden Diskó Ship is Theresa Stroetges, a Berlin-based multi-instrumentalist and video artist who performs live as a one-girl orchestra. Her imaginative soundscapes, shifting from delicate melodic lines steeped in nostalgia to the feedback arcs and textured distortion of machine abuse, evoke lucid dreams and have won critical praise for their fresh, eclectic collages of electronic and acoustic sound.“ (CTM concerts, Berlin)
„On her third LP, strains of North African souk float in above the doof-doof basslines on the opening track „Flaming Flamingo“, giving way to more cosmic visions blended with Touareg-style guitars on „Pacific Trash Vortex“, before she drops into some plaintive Chinese strings over skippy rhythms on „Abandoned Chinese Fishing Village“. Safe to say, Stroetges takes a magpie approach to her atmospheric and experimental dance music, gathering up shiny snippets and playing around with assorted effects and Auto-Tune along the way.“ (The Wire)
An adventure began two years ago when Jo said: I don’t want shooting more stunning landscape photos of Iceland on our next trip to Iceland. Instead I want to record sounds and make a song out of them. Frank was a bit baffled because he knew Jo’s musical uncertainties well. But he loved the idea. Hence, the two travelled Iceland mainly with their ears. After the return Jo deeply stepped into the world of her recorded sounds and discovered her own musical terrain. She fell in love with hidden and dirty sounds, learned to shape them sensitively and developed a feeling for combining them. Soon, she realised that there was so much to explore that she made more than one song.
And now it’s time: Jo will release her debut album „Bumblebee“ on May 11th.
左右 Sa Yuu - concert recording in Halle at the 10th of March
At the 10th of March, we took the chance to catch the outstanding band 左右 Sa Yuu from Japan on its short Germany tour in Halle. We are very grateful to Adrian, Omni and „the best place for rabbits“ to make this happen.
We are still thrilled by the great performance of the band.
Sa Yuu means the left and the right. On the left side we find the tight guitar and the powerful vocals, on the right a precise, gnarled bass, played simultaneously with a bass drum and the hi-hat. This results in an energetic music somewhere between post-punk and never heard before.
