great news from great people. Hamburg, Bielefeld, Münster & Dortmunds mighty BLCKWVS entered the Tonmeisterei in Oldenburg to record their upcoming LP “0150” – they are very mystic about the new stuff, i haven’t heard a second of the rehearsal demos & the only thing they told me is that there will be some light changes & experiments on “0150”. i am super excited!
Maybe they try some singing on some of the new songs, maybe the new stuff is a little more rockish than the previous material? dunno… I mos def keep you posted on this and they promised to get me the rough mixes as soon as possible.
there are also some plans to do do a special BLCKWVS LP-Box with all of their previous vinyls, new mastered and new recorded extra stuff.
i don’t know when The Tidal Sleep wrote new songs – they played literally at every corner in germany over the last few month – but obviously they found some time to. if everything works well, we get five, if they are laid back they do “only” three new songs which will be released september/october this year via TCM. that’s the quote from their page:
“we’re heading into a studio in cologne tonite. arktika recorded there, and were really happy with the outcome. they’re also lending us some of their stuff. thanks a million. recording/engineering will be handled by producer extraordinaire lewis johns of the long haul fame. chilling with us will be the lovely alexander pennie of goodtime boys fame. they will be impressed by our total unprofessional approach to play in time to a click track! ”
make sure you’ll catch them on tour somewhere here or read a german interview here:
