  • Das Weiße Pferd – OKTOBERFEST

    Das Weiße Pferd – OKTOBERFEST

    A worm in Pico Be’s ear during a nightly bike ride through Feldmoching. It’s Lou Reed’s Coney Island Baby. Bicycle wheels through empty streets bordered with greenery, cars and Hochhäusern chanting The Glory of Love over and over again. The repetition of the cityscape and the moving lights are intoxicating.  The Odd Poet thinks of…

  • Shame Over – Murena Murena (2016)

    Shame Over – Murena Murena (2016)

    Some albums ask for a laidback listening. Some you can listen to casually, put them in cars or in bars, making people fall in love for the length of one song, making them ask “Wow who’s that?”… Some other albums may seem hermetic when you first taste them, because they need to be listened to…

  • Year in Review – 2015 in Munich again

    Year in Review – 2015 in Munich again

    Here we are, at the end of 2015, a completely incredible year. 2015 is the year where the Munich Underground Scene actually became completely tangible to me. I was here from January 22nd to February 4th, and now I’ve been here since November 4th. I had all the time in the world to completely dive into…

  • Skläsh – LeRoy (2015)

    Skläsh – LeRoy (2015)

    So here we are, at the beginning of Skläsh, at the beginning of Like a Disease, at the beginning of a 39 minutes journey into LeRoy’s creation. To be honest, as I write these words, I’m still in my first love-phase with Skläsh. The /passionate/ phase. The “I wouldn’t think about cheating on you with…

  • Cpt. Yossarian’s Europa in Dub – LaBrassBanda (2015)

    Cpt. Yossarian’s Europa in Dub – LaBrassBanda (2015)

    So, while I was away, Europa in Dub was released on all the usual platforms. So, of course, I have been playing it to all my open-eared commuters aboard the GendronMobile (because yeah, I test Munich’s new stuff on Montrealers all the time – some people even begin to make links between who’s who now…

  • Sarah Gonputh – I’m Still in Love – The Remixes (2015)

    Sarah Gonputh – I’m Still in Love – The Remixes (2015)

    If you have followed the Munich Scene Tumblr Action in the last couple of days, you might have noticed that we have all been raving a little about this concept of Munich Scene All Stars. All of a sudden, we just put on a pedestal the usually pretty elusive artists that work in the shadows…

  • What comes next? – Dizzy Errol (2015)

    What comes next? – Dizzy Errol (2015)

    What comes next when you release such a total joy of a record? I’ll tell you what comes next. You play that record until your ears bleed and your knees fall under you from too much dancing. Dizzy Errol is one constant, bright blue moon in your sky. He accompanies your nights and shines so…

  • Mars etc. by Aloa Input (2015)

    Mars etc. by Aloa Input (2015)

    Out on March 6, 2015 on Morr Music It doesn’t happen often that I listen to an album and just think : this is it. The perfect balance between a soft and a hard core. This album is all soft lips and rough callouses at the same time. In the same songs. There’s nothing simple…

  • BELP feat. Becky Reynolds Band (2015)

    BELP feat. Becky Reynolds Band (2015)

    The frontman in the synthesizer With his iconic tie and his eight huge gloved hands A headless octopus in a suit. His head is in the clouds Playing serenades under a vectorized moonlight Like melancholic cries for his long gone lover When is Becky coming back? Pam, pa-lam, pa-lam

  • City of O by Pollyester (2015)

    City of O by Pollyester (2015)

    I warned you all about this incoming storm. The new Pollyester album is flying through the atmosphere like a storm of pink and gold glitter. It gets on everything. There’s something properly addictive about this album. It’s shiny. It’s glossy. It’s catchy as hell. It’s stand-alone pieces of perfection that are joined together by The…

  • Münchner Freiheit by Das Weiße Pferd (2015)

    Münchner Freiheit by Das Weiße Pferd (2015)

    Can Münchner Freiheit be the cornerstone of a new era of intelligent, unpredictable and transcendent folk music, please? Can we make sure the wild White Horse will be elevated to mythological creature one day?

  • Leonie Singt (2015)

    Leonie Singt (2015)

    What are you seeing? Is that troubled, dangerous currents or soft waves hitting a rocky shore? Surprisingly, both produce similar sounds. Calming loops of busy noise, fading in, fading out, compelling you to breathe more profoundly, the high tide and the low tide waltzing with your senses.

  • Columbus (2015)

    Inland Empire by Das Weiße Pferd (2013)

    2014 #munich again Top Albums Echokammer – Website – Soundcloud – Spotify Surprise! Actually, not much of a surprise. We all know how much of a Das Weiße Pferd fangirl I am. Das Weiße Pferd…. the project of two of my “faves”, misters Pöschl and Sánchez, a project that has grown a lot since San Fernando (which is an album of…

  • Helldunkel by Protein (2014)

    Helldunkel by Protein (2014)

    Schamoni –  Bandcamp – Soundcloud Okay. To be honest I wanted to put this one on a later date because I just talked about Parasyte Woman, but, with the momentum of the European release with Indigo, it needed to happen now. Please bear with me as I need to tell you my Helldunkel story. *Or just skip next paragraph,…

  • Ghoaster Coaster by Murena Murena (2014)

    Ghoaster Coaster by Murena Murena (2014)

    Official website – Echokammer – Bandcamp So I continue my journey (this list will be updated 1-3 times a week until 2015 depending on my engagements) with an album that, quite frankly, is at the same time super heavy and super accessible. It’s not a kind release, it’s completely action-packed, and yet, from personal experience,…

  • Homeless Information by Parasyte Woman (2011)

    Homeless Information by Parasyte Woman (2011)

    Echokammer – Spotify – Soundcloud – Lyrics and album art I cannot not talk about how Parasyte Woman’s album Homeless Information was a key musical piece for me this year. Honestly, if I don’t listen to this album once a week, I feel deprivation. Together, Manuela’s voice, her unbelievably wide register and technique, and Protein’s talent for creating outer-worldly…

  • DAMENKAPELLE aus München by DAMENKAPELLE (2011)

    DAMENKAPELLE aus München by DAMENKAPELLE (2011)

    Echokammer – Spotify – Bandcamp – Peter Kemp’s review So here we begin the 2014 Countdown with the album that started it all, that made this girl from Canada fall in love with the Sound of Munich and acknowledge so many wonderful artists. This album was a life changing experience for me honestly. I could go on and…
