MEUTE is a Techno Marching Band – eleven drummers and horn players from Hamburg / Germany who fulfil the job of a dj with their acoustic instruments. The archaic conglomerate of brass and drums creates a new genre by combining hypnotic driving techno and expressive brass band music.

Prolific singer-songwriter (Sandy) Alex G, formerly known simply as Alex G, has built a dedicated following over the past few years through a steady output of washed-out indie odes, gently demented psych musings and, most recently, twangy roots rock.

The DIY-to-the-core duo Twen have debuted with an album. Awestruck is a time capsule two years in the making and recorded in different locations along the way. Though unabashedly indie rock, Twen’s songs genre-bend from shoe-gaze-sized walls of sound to Beatle-esque call-and-response harmonies, while frontperson Jane Fitzsimmons’ voice weaves through guitarist Ian Jones’ guitar lines with Cocteau Twin’s inspired flair, giving breath of ethereal mysticism across the album. Tonight in concert at Heliogàbal.
Venezuelan-American artist Devendra Banhart conquers hearts wherever he goes with his magical compositions and his charming trembling voice. This year he has presented his tenth album, “Ma” (Warner, 2019), in which he has the collaborations of Cate Le Bon and Vashti Bunyan. Filled with lush melodies and surprising string arrangements, Banhart – who is approaching his forties – deals with the death of parents and mentors and gives life lessons to the son he probably won’t end up having. Cruïlla Primavera presents him tonight in concert at Razzmatazz.
