MARISSA NADLER [usa], ARIEL PINK [usa], LAWRENCE WASSER [be]
Part 389 of the many-sided (K-RAA-K)3 nights. .MARISSA NADLER from New York plays guitar, banjo, cello and ukulele. Her mournful songs, moulded into ballad-alike folkpop, put death and convicted love in the picture. Uncommonly beautiful, with a stunning voice as additional benefit. .Encage a young David Bowie with a limited knowledge about instruments in a room stuffed with affordable gear and lo-fi recording equipment and the result will be ARIEL PINK. Goethe’s quote “It is in the self-limitatiuon that a master shows himself” proves Ariel Pink right! The melodic 70’s glampop is layered, melodic, sometimes cheesy and pointed. A dreamy fantasy world from an idiot, a genius, a genial idiot or an idiot genius. The choice is yours (and who cares, as long as you enjoy the music?). .LAWRENCE WASSER is a brand new no-wave band from Brussels. Drum, synth, bass and guitar harvest an Erase Errata-alike sound.
