Timid Kooky (LT)

prog punk rock


“Seamlessly juxtaposing hard drums, power vocals, guitar and a bongo for what we’ll describe as  funky noise psych rock – it’s a band for a party” – LIVEUROPE


That’s the wonderfully weird space the three-headed Lithuanian band Timid Kooky moves in.

The boldness, wackiness and genre-related schizophrenia of the young trio, in which all the members contribute to the lead vocals, are reflected on their debut album ‘TANZEN’, which might sound to some as well-curated compilation of various alternative bands. Even so, Timid Kooky aren’t just another college indie band. It’s evident that they mean business and approach music with the right ‘rocknrolla’ amount of professionalism, as proved by the fact they were named the best new Baltic band in 2017 and played in some of the most prestigious music showcase festivals in Europe

Hearts Hearts (AT)

alternative / indie

“One of the most arresting debuts in recent years.”

Drowned In Sound


“Hearts Hearts are a unique proposition.”




It was on the 1st of January 2016, during the release of their debut album, Young. Independently of each other, Peter Paul Aufreiter and Johannes Mandorfer sent sound snippets over to Hearts Hearts’ singer David Österle. Within the same hour, he’d received an aggressive jazzy piano loop – ‘Phantom’ – and an electronic drum take recorded overseas in ‘Island’ (the German word for the country of Iceland). Österle fran- tically began attempting to put these disparate pieces together; to synchronize what was never meant to be unified, and started singing over the results.



Though genre-wise no match at all, the fragments didn’t only end up as ‘Phantom/Island’ – the breath- taking opener to Hearts Hearts’ sophomore album Goods / Gods – but the unusual process itself became the aesthetic basis for the entire record. The band‘s widened approach to disparate musical genres became the key element in the creation of eleven new songs. Hearts Hearts have cracked and evolved their electron- ic ballads and downbeat pop into something far more sonically expansive and emotionally soulful, driven by higher energy and a growing array of influences.



The chance meetings of unrelated options that in- spired the writing and recording process is present throughout the titles of Goods / Gods. The record takes its inspiration from those in between spaces and un- defined borderlines in meaning, symbolised by the slash in every title on the album. Hearts Hearts explore emotional and moral ambiguities on Goods / Gods, taking aim at the ineffectiveness of the dichotomies and borderlines that define modern society in the process, preferring to “think in options” as Hämmerle puts it. The group sees the diagonal line of the slash symbol as representing an openness and flexibility in meaning; in similarity as much as difference.



Produced by mastermind Peter Paul Aufreiter, the new record conjures a mix of anguish and ecstasy, wheth- er it’s the funky falsetto of ‘Sugar / Money’, or digital monster ballad ‘Do you often think about /’. Taking inspiration from the leftfield pop productions of Bon Iver, Jamie XX, and Son Lux, they skew addictive hooks into drippy song chambers, littering them with lucid samples and cybernetic production licks, conjoining contrasting elements with prisms of electronics and lush acoustic instrumentation.



Lead single ‘Phantom / Island’ and instant motoric pop classic ‘Goods / Gods’ are the most addictive and high- energy tracks yet from the quartet, blending groovier verses with increasingly majestic choruses. This is ul- tra-intelligent pop from a band that have found their true voice. Somewhere between happiness and sad- ness, energy and lethargy, electronica and rock – that’s where you’ll find Hearts Hearts


indie / acoustic / easy listening

Kaukolampi (FI)



I wanted to break all structure, to see if all form can be destroyed.” Says K-X-P frontman, Timo Kaukolampi, of his debut solo album. A desire to deconstruct convention is not a new thing for Kaukolampi, given that the Finnish band have been blurring the lines between techno, krautrock, space rock and experimental electronica for the last decade and forging an idiosyncratic and unique sound truly of their own.


Whilst playing some pummelling and PA-testing solo electronic shows over the last year, Kaukolampi has picked up fans such as Erol Alkan, James Holden and Optimo, they were invited to the latter’s 20th anniversary party in Glasgow this year to perform – they’re the group Optimo have booked the most over the two decades. Whilst K-X-P still remains a strong and evolving force, Kaukolampi has created an outlet for something new in his solo endeavours.

Kiol (IT)

folk / groove


He’s not even 20 years old, but his talent is a rare gem in the Italian music scene. Perhaps in part also due to moving abroad to Ireland. If nothing else, that’s where he got his nickname from – ceol, pronounced “kiol”, which means “music” in Gaelic.


Kiol has already written more than 30 songs, as well as had the opportunity to record with Paolo Nutini’s producer Dani Castelar. His first EP was released days before Eurosonic Noorderslag 2017 where he played several gigs, which is why we like to consider Kiol a sweet child of our freshly-launched project.

Lysistrata (FR)

post-rock / noise / math-rock


Lysistrata is a French band (20 years of average age) inspired by the screaming energy of youth. Formed in 2013, their music is between post-rock, noise and math-rock. These boys dive from the solid rock of their virtuosity into a rampant ocean of sonic freedom, screaming and shouting with the exhilaration of free-fall. Once on stage they pack down the vibrations, amplify the tension and let it all come raving out like tomorrow just got cancelled. 


For fans of Fugazi, At the Drive-In, A Place to Bury Strangers…

MaNNazz (LT)

Performers are not afraid to get out of their comfort zone in order to touch the hearts of the listeners.


Although MaNNazz has been working together for only a few years now, the band has already won several nominations and earned success in foreign countries.

electronic / bass / beats


MELVITRONICA is the brainchild of Scottish born Adam Melvin, taking inspiration from as far afield as old skool computers and arcade games, classical music, reggae, funk and soul. It’s safe to say that the sound of hip hop and its world-class turntablists wield had the biggest influence over Adam’s work, though, as he cuts up and programs his beats with the precision of a ninja, both on stage and in the studio. “DJ Shadow” is an obvious touchstone, too, while Adam’s live show sees him work the wax as well as the midi programs and various instruments, including kaossilator, flute, synths and loopers, with plenty of humour, no lack of skill and equal parts showmanship. It’s a lot of fun and a bit of a rarity.


MELVITRONICA has been performing live across Scotland since early 2000 and throughout the years supported such artists as”Nathan Fake” and “DJ Vadim”. He is also a part of South African band “Manje” where together they have played in some of the biggest festivals in Scotland like “Eden”, “Knockengorroch”, “Kelburn Garden Party” and others.

Strictly DIY, PODRUGA puts a lot of attention into every detail of its music, performances and aesthetic.

Super Besse (BY)

post-punk / coldwave


Post punk/coldwave  Russian singing band Super Besse was formed in 2013 in Minsk, Belarus.


The band’s first appearance outside their homeland took place at Estonian showcase festival Tallinn Music Week in 2014 and was followed by rave feedback describing Super Besse as „stunning” and „powerful”. Their next live shows around the Baltic states soon led them to reputation of a strong live band and secured a record deal with Latvian independent label I Love You Records.


Super Besse’s debut album 63610*, released in May 2015, was presented at Europavox Festival in Clermont-Ferrand, France, including a performance at Super Besse resort from where the band’s name comes from.


Since 2014 the band has done dozens of gigs in the Baltics, Scandinavia, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland and other European countries, taking by storm audiences everywhere.


During the last year Super Besse worked on their second studio album La Nuit*, released on 13th of October 2017.


„The album is about night adventures. We tried to describe the feelings and beauty of some moments at that deepest time, surrounded by gloom with a bit of melancholy,” band members outline the mood of their new record.

All nine songs on the album are written and produced by Super Besse and mastered by Paul Gold at Salt Mastering, New York.


“The main thing about Super Besse is that it is nonsense and that we don’t follow the mainstream – we love France, we sing in Russian and play gigs in Europe with a powerful punk spirit at our shows and coldwave synth sounds in our songs. We try to mix it all,” the band’s singer, guitarist and lyricist Maksim once said in an interview.

Timid Kooky (LT)

protopunk, psychedelic grunge/punk/rock


We’re Timid Kooky, an experimental-extreme-psychedelic-protopunk trio from Vilnius, Lithuania. What to expect? Three lead vocals (simultaneously) singing various weird and crooked harmonies, dirty math’ish drum and guitar explosions together with energy, that could take you to Jupiter and back. During our performances we try to keep it raw, but professional and as tight as possible. We always try. We started playing gigs only a year ago but we have already gained quite some recognition and sympathy in the local waters, released our debut album and now we would like to see and find out if the rest of the world is as timid and kooky as the Lithuanians.


In year 2017, when Timid Kooky started playing, band has won two main Lithuanian music contests for young bands – Garažas and NOVUS in which Timid Kooky was nominated as the best new Baltic act.


After that band got a chance and was invited to perform at biggest music festivals of Lithuania – Galapagai, Granatos, Roko Naktys, Loftas Fest, showcase festival What’s Next in Music? and also had about 30 solo shows. All Timid Kooky performances –
In spring of 2018 band released its debut album Tanzen.

Without Letters (LT)

electronic / experimental


WITHOUT LETTERS is an experimental Lithuanian band, exploring the landscape of off-kilter electronic, dance and guitar music as well as states of empowering collectivity. In their studio practice the band has delved into a variety musical genres from noise rock, krautrock to footwork, trance and hard techno. By filtering out what is the most sincere and engaging in their creative process, WITHOUT LETTERS have since rediscovered archives of early clubbing music, its societal values and sound aesthetics. That provided fissures for getting around the notion of guitar as once rebellious, now obsolete instrument, its raw immediacy more potent now than ever.


The group’s most recent material is inspired by the increasingly nebulous, anxious feeling of the present. Trance inducing rhythmical structures and the sharp guitar outbursts invoke krautrock inspired blissful harmonies without offering an escape to a time and place that has passed or never even existed. Dark, frantic pace underlies WITHOUT LETTERS live set, with clear intent to cut through the hierarchy of stage and audience, to melt all that into a playful, potentially ecstatic co-participation.




You can say, that Wolfsome plays rock’n’roll, which was born from blues and hard rock mix.


In a couple of years Wolfsome gathered a lot of recognition in Lithuanian music scene: best new act in LRT Opus new groups competition, received nominations as best rock group and new act  in biggest Lithuanian music awards M.A.M.A., released an album “Origin.412”. Music video for song “Home” was acknowledged as best music video this year in Lithuania.
