We vs. Death

Last year’s reunion shows of influential Utrecht-based post-rock group We vs. Death, brought back warm memories of the Dutch underground scene at the start of the century, when they were regulars in local and European scenes and festivals. These reunions, however, were more than just nostalgic; there was a palpable new energy and expression, and rumors about new material.

dj. flugvel og geimskip

dj. flugvel og geimskip (“Airplane & Spaceship” in Icelandic) is the one-person orchestra of Steinunn Hardardottir drawing influences from a thousand worlds. Electronic horror-music with a space twist: playful beats, bass, catchy melodies and joyfully off-kilter vocals. Songs about alien worlds, mysteries and dangers of the night, performed live in a shared, colorful and poetic lucid dream.

AMAGUK is a three-piece band based in Rotterdam.
