Out soon via Grönland Records is the new release “Nur Noch Einer” by Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft (DAF). On vocals we find Robert Görl, as Gabi Delgado died in March 2020 just when Görl and Delgado had reunited to record a new album aided by producer Sylvie Marks.

After the death of Delgado, Görl started writing and recording the lyrics. The album holds 15 tracks and will be released on November 26th on CD and vinyl.

Deine Lakaien (Alexander Veljanov and Ernst Horn) have released the lyric video “Nightfall” as the first single taken from their forthcoming new album “Dual +”. “Dual +” is scheduled for release on November 26, 2021. The previous album “Dual” was strictly following a principle of one cover version on the first album with a new song that was inspired by it on the second record, on “Dual +” the band keeps the basic formula. “While creating ‘Dual’, we had already considered to have each new track directly following or preceding the cover version that it relates too”, explains Ernst Horn. “This idea was dropped when we recorded more and more songs, which finally led us to create a double album. Now we saw a good opportunity to bring the immediate contrast back on “Dual +” as ‘Nightfall’ is musically clearly connected to Pink Floyd’s classic “Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun”. Lyrically, there is a different type of contrast as “Nightfall” represents the beginning of a journey into the night, to travel through the infinite expanse of space to the stars, which symbolises our longing for home far away.” Here’s the first track, “Nightfall”.

Nick Cave reveals 1st of 3 installations for the New York City’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA)
(Screenshot Reuters) Nick Cave has created an installation for the New York City’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA). The permanent, two-dimensional, mosaic display is called “Every One” and is the first of a three-piece installation, the others titled “Each One” and “Equal All” which will be completed early next year. “Every One” covers almost 300 square meters and runs along the corridor under 42nd Street connecting the Times Square and Bryant Park subway stations. When completed, the three installations will cover almost 430 square meters and will extend from the Times Square to Grand Central subway stations. It’s clearly inspired by Nick Cave’s Soundsuit sculptures showing costumes that completely covers the model’s body. The costumes are made from sisal, dyed human hair, beads, plastic buttons, wire, feathers, and sequins. To date, Cave has created over 500 Soundsuits since the first creation in 1992. Here’s an impression.
Industrial act Fleischkrieg has unveiled their new video for the Frankie Goes To Hollywood song, “Relax”. “Relax” appears on the forthcoming Fleischkrieg album, “Herzblut”, due out in October of this year. Guitarist Thomas Crawford explains the choice: “We chose this song because we believe it was a perfect representation of FleischKrieg’s sound. An 80’s influence of pop and synth about self-love and respect, wrapped in a heavy industrial bow!” The band released “Fool’s Folly”, the first single and music video off their debut album “Herzblut” earlier this year. The band will continue to release a new single and music video in July, September, and October to promote the album’s October release. But here’s their version of “Relax”.

The video was shot by Jeroen Jullet – a Jerry’s Joint. The band, centered around Isa Holliday and Jelle Harde Ronsmans, had a rough past few years.

Shortly after, their label Holy Roar Records imploded, leaving the band without a label. The new album was produced by Slow Crush, Sebastian Omerson and Neil D. Kennedy.
