SUNN TRIO (US) > concert time: 21h00 sharp
Sunn Trio hail from Phoenix, Arizona. Surrounded by deserts like the Middle Eastern guitar music that is one of the notable influences on their sound, along with free jazz and harsh exotica and touchstones as disparate as Sonny Sharrock ,John McLaughlin, Sir Richard Bishop and Thinking Fellers Union Local 282. Sunn Trio’s Fayrus album on the Unrock label last year is a kaleidoscope for the ears featuring sax, saron, gong, boning, lap steel, tambura, oud lute and even a Gameboy, echoing from behind a curtain of bitter haze and sun-beaten punk. In the words of Alan Bishop (Sun City Girls), “Wielding Indo-Arabian Saz & white lightning six-string shrapnel amidst an alligator snapping turtle’s rhythm section, this trio-quartet-sextet may also sprout horns, flutes, animal skins, or shadow gamelan to faithfully demolish that whiny and predictable listening experience of today’s tepidly lazy, underachieving experimental music scene. Not a “safe” environment.”

Friday 16 Nov > Sublime Frequencies 15 year tour @ OCCII, Amsterdam w/ Baba Commandant, Senyawa & more!

This friday Amsterdam people!

Sublime Frequencies tour night in OCCII with 2 international bands; Baba Commandant & his Mandingo Band from Burkina Faso and duo Senyawa from Indonesia, plus duo Sharif Sehnaoui & Michael Zerang.

Since 15 years, American label SUBLIME FREQUENCIES enriches the music world as a specialist in non-western music. Besides music, they also publish books, documentaries and films. Tonight they present two live artists signed on their label: Senyawa (Indonesia) and Baba Commandant (Burkina Faso). Also Canadian-Egyptian duo Sharif Sehnaoui & Michael Zerang will perform an early set. DJ support comes from the label owner Hisham Mayet of Sublime Frequencies, Rebel Up and Papelon Kifesh.

Senwaya
this duo from Yogyakarta is headed by Rully Shabara and Wukir Suryardi. Indonesian traditional music forms the basis, but the duo uses playing techniques from experimental genres to create a completely unique sound. Hardcore metal, improvisation and traditional ritual music played with an intensity as if punk. Singer Shabare uses vocal traditions of the island in his singing but can also heavy metal grunting. Suryardi plays self-built instruments with names like ‘Gary’, ‘Bambu Wukir’ and ‘Aker Mahoni’. During performances, the duo uses homemade electronics to edit the sound of the vocals and instruments live. Their new album ‘Sujud’ has just been released.

They are not satanic, they just make God cry.
They don’t play samba, they decompose samba.
They are not a trio, they are a quintet.
So definitely, they are Satanique Samba Trio!
Imagine Tom Zé without vocals!! Or Captain Beefheart in a Brazilian mood!!!

SATANIC SAMBA TRIO was founded in 2002 with the sole purpose of posing as an idiosyncratic force on Brazilian Music landscape (hence, the reference to the word “Satan”, a derivation of the Hebrew expression shaitan, which in turn can be translated as “the adversary” or “stray”). Two years later, the quintet – not actually a trio – released their debut EP, MISANTROPICALIA.
In 2007, the band unearthed the critically acclaimed LP SANGROU, which led its way into Concerts on Brazilian Soil that also featured names as big as Tom Zé and Naná Vasconcelos. After a 3 year-long recording hiatus, as they toured around Brazil (big country, you know the drill), BAD TRIP SIMULATOR #2 was released with undeniable success. The “putrefaction trilogy” had just started: BAD TRIP SIMULATOR #1 from 2011 (yep, one year AFTER #2) and BAD TRIP SIMULATOR #3 (2013) would eventually follow the conceptual path of decay. By the earlier months of 2014, the band put together a digital compilation called BADTRIPTYCH (Far Out Recordings – UK) intended to lump up the “catchier” songs from the aforemented trilogy. Still in the wake of a creative spike, the quintet (remember: not a trio) released a 7-inch (45 RPM) vinyl record called MÓ BAD on 2015. Now they might be hitting your shores.
If you ever wanted to know how traditional brazilian music would sound if it went absolutely bonkers, Satanique Samba Trio is the fastest and coolest way find it out.

Fri 26 Sept > Rebel Up! dj @ Post-Anatol psychedelic concert night, Les Ateliers Claus w/ Hayvanlar Alemi (TR), Powerdove (US), Yann Gourdon & Hervé Boghossian

Hayvanlar Alemi
Hayvanlar Alemi is a psychedelic folk rock band founded in Ankara. They got together in secondary school in 1999, when they were 14. Classical rock and heavy metal were big influences on teenagers in Ankara then, and they started their musical venture playing hard-and-heavy covers, but very soon self-discovered free improvisation and moved into a more avant-garde approach, and later on occasionally deployed traditional instruments, found-sound elements like live radio, and colorful stage theatrics. They were influenced by the new folk-infused experimental rock scene of the late 90s Istanbul, but isolated from any music scene in Ankara, their sound and song-structure diverged from their contemporaries as they incorporated elements from the findings of their musical research into their sound, which included folk, pop and hybrid sounds of South East Asia, East and West Africa, South America and Russia, as well as Jamaican dub reggae and Californian surf. In 2010, their album Guarana Superpower came out on outernational label Sublime Frequencies and they have just released their latest album Twisted Souvenirs on Unrock.
arrest
is the project of pianist Annie Lewandowski from Minnesota, a place full of things that are long and longer: church services, dinner tables, and worry lines, to name a few. Somebody said there are ten thousand lakes there; if that’s true, each of them shows up in some little way in Annie’s songs. She writes under the name Powerdove, which began as a band of one in California in 2007 and was soon joined by John Dieterich (of noise pop outfit Deerhoof) and French guitarist Thomas Bonvale (L’ocelle Mare). Her new album ‘Arrest’ was recorded in one day and features playfull ballads that sound soft and dangerous like stolen kisses, sensual yet filled with joyous threats from the heart that disregard reason.
Yann Gourdon & Hervé Boghossian : Ce duo acoustique créé en février 2014, joue une musique imprégnée d’un minimalisme primitif à l’apparente aridité et qui révèle sa profondeur dans l’expérience d’écoute de l’espace.
support by Rebel Up! dj with global psycherock tunes and whatnot.
