Taint @ Chesters, Apr 20

18 April 2014

The Taint night is celebrating Easter Sunday at Berlin’s Chesters in it’s own way, on April 20.

Performers include a reunited Nuclear Family, Heatsick, who released a RE-ENGINEERING earlier this year, and rRoxymore, who also has an EP out on Planningtorock‘s Human Level label.

Also featuring are Joey Hansom, Dj Alternegro and Cut Loose at the event that also falls also happens to fall on a stoner holiday, 420. No points for guessing which tradition the night identifies with more.

Read an interview with Heatsick and see the Facebook event page for details. **

Rroxymore – ‘FltNordf’

14 August 2013

Evidently Rroxymore (aka Hermione Frank) doesn’t only let her cat crawl over her keyboard when she’s doing things like naming her tracks but she’s also adept at creating some delightfully frenetic tunes in the mean time. Hence, her wonderfully unpronouncable ‘FltNordf’ and our equal inability to describe the compulsive jive of its warbling synthetic tunes.

The track comes in advance of her four track EP Precarious/Precious, released on Planningtorock‘s label Human Level, August 19. **
