Deichkind – No Party

Hilarious video for Keine Party (No Party) by the popular hip hop and electro band Deichkind. The concept is obviously inspired by Kap Bambino and Techno Girl. Nevertheless, I like this stuff. The sophisticated dancer is non other than famous actor Lars Eidinger.

Konvent – Puritan Masochism

First song from the upcoming full-length debut album by Konvent from Denmark. If the rest of the album can hold up to this song, then we are in for pure death doom bliss. I also really like the album art.


Meanwhile, we can listen to their demo from 2017.


Bohren & der Club of Gore – Sollen es doch Alle wissen

Mark your calendars: On January 10th, 2019 a new Bohren album will see the light of day or yet better: will see the dark of night. Bohren is one of those bands best listened to after dark. It’s also one of those bands that had a big impact on me. The blog name Midnight Ritual Radio is no coinicidence (hint: Midnight Radio).

MC Tha – Rito de Passá

Samba-esque funky pop from Brazil. I don’t pretend to know what’s going on here, but I like what I see and hear. Apparently, some of the scenes depict an authentic Umbanda ritual. I enjoyed it so much that I listened to the whole album (Youtube, Spotify).

I quote a translated snippet from Rolling Stone Brazil:

“Rito de Passá”, by the voice of MC Tha, is a powerful act of celebrating the constant movement, the constant transformation. It seeks the understanding of the now, too, be it painful or euphoric. Nothing is static, everything changes.
