Maison du Malheur | Noorderslag, 12-01-2013
From the moment the first notes of Maison du Malheur sound, you imagine yourself in the prewar world of blues and jazz. The Amsterdam band around singer/songwriter J.P. Mesker know how to capture the simplicity and atmosphere of classic roots music effortlessly and connect this with stories about nacturnal wanderings, passionate love and frantic deperation. Maison du Malheur have played all accross the Netherlands last year to plant seeds. Let's see how this vegetates in 2013. Rumor has it they're completing their second album as we speak!
The Pussywarmers | Eurosonic, 11-01-2013
The Pussywarmers won't bring you a paragon of sophistication, elegant manners and accurary. Hailing from the Italian speaking part of Switzerland this orchestra delivers a crude mixture of the glory jazz era in the mid 1920s. Heartache of the raunchy kind, adventures in dark pubs, soaked in alcohol and Weltschmerz are the ingredients of the songs. The decadent twenties and thirties, but far away from everything the glamor of those days refers to.
