Thursday, 1 Oct: +27 Design Cafe

Hey there internet people!

Just a little note to let you know that we'll be performing this Thursday at +27 Design Cafe in Hatfield, Pretoria.

It's informal, outdoors, the Cappuccino is tu-die-fo' and I believe that they've still got a Louis Minnaar exhibition running that has to be experienced in all its black and white splendor. Bring a bottle of wine, and come and relax.

Lets hope that the weather is kind enough to spare us a few hours.

Baby, Im a broken down lover in this

So, a little while back we had the tremendous pleasure to play at CitySlickers, an art exhibition organized by our dear friend Maaike (check out her blog: Whatever I can think of).

We had such an awesome time that night, and the people at the exhibition was wonderfully receptive.

This is a videoclip done by someone. I'm not entirely sure who it was yet, but I'll find out, and as soon as we've confirmed we'll give the due credit.
Edit: Our friend Bernard tells us that his friend, and now ours, Vaughan took the footage. Thanks Vaughan, much love.

The song is called Cool Hero, hope you enjoy it, especially the off-key start that I had and very quickly needed to rectify.

Expert Heart

Expert Heart.mp3

A rough track we did one Saturday a few weeks ago.

Werner is doing vocals on this one, it's pretty buried in the accidental mix, I like where it ended up. He's muttering something about holding your tongue if you're wondering. Also, some acoustic guitars (mangled beyond recognition), and a bass drone courtesy of Ableton Live.

The recording might sound a bit long winded, but I think it works well when you allow yourself to be consumed by it.

Hope you find and enjoy this.

Love you long time

Happy Feet

How cool is our header ? Louis Minnaar did us the HUGE favour of dragging us to a dodgy alleyway and snapping at our feet. It was quite an enjoyable experience to work with Louis. His sense of conviction is so infectious, that we never once doubted the very random props that he was tossing around.

We've decided to start a little blog to share rough demos that we've been working on in my apartment. I say "rough", because they are recorded once off and rendered out from there, without any further mixing. Expect an upload tomorrow.

We'll also use this space to try and keep people up to date with whatever Werner is killing his time with at work.

Till tomorrow then.
