The alternative electro-pop duo Vimes from  in Germany is Azhar Syed and Julian Stetter. Taking strides towards organ music, Vimes has a breathy floating sound that flows around the room as they take the latest electronics kit for a run out and veil it inside a Cathedral like experience. There is plenty of echo and distance to keep the listener engaged with the […]

Cool Rainbows

Cool Rainbows marks my first step to New Zealand. Essentially a vehicle for Auckland based Djeisan Suskov ( vocals /guitar /multi-instrumentalist / songwriter), but the live band includes Cass Mitchell (bass) and Alex Freer (drums). If it were more laid back, the music would be playing backwards, what a great way to start the long Easter Break (as I […]
