Update // Ben Frost // PTTRNS // Einar Stray // SXSW

It’s been a little quiet from my side lately but here is some of what I’ve been doing in the past week.

  • seeing Ben Frost and Klimek at the Berghain last Thursday as part of the “Elektroakustischer Salon” series. Fortunately, I just borrowed good ear protection from a friend, since I lost my old one. What a massive set, full of icy sound landscapes, guitar noise. Although the price of 19€ made me think about going in the first place quite a few times, it was absolutely worth it. Probably not the last time I will go to these nights..I really should have gone to Oneohtrix Point Never (supporting Lustmord) earlier..
  • the following day I went to see PTTRNS from Cologne (part of the ongoing conspiracy of bands leaving out vowels) at the great Schokoladen. I described their sound as “german short-delay afro-pop” to Ted.
  • listening to 20-year old Norwegian classical-experimental-postrock newcomer Einar Stray, who was recommended to me by a friend who saw him at By:Larm in Oslo a few weeks back. Here is some nice footage of this set.

Also, O(h)rtlos will see a physical reunion at this year’s SXSW and we are now trying to find good music to discover in Austin. There will be a compilation of acts playing at SXSW soon on this site.
