Live: Pranke (Berlin) + We don't suck we blow - So, 05.03.17

Pranke - AvantMathRockPop aus Berlin

Support Act: We don't suck we blow - Jazz/ Funk/ Hiphop aus Hamburg

Daniel Fridrik Bodvarsson - guitar, voice    –    Max Andrzejewski - drums, voice, synth

Pranke was formed in the summer of 2014 by Icelandic guitarist Daniel Bödvarsson and German drummer Max Andrzejewski. Both are prominent on the young Berlin jazz/ improvised music scene. The flatmates’ listening sessions led them to the rehearsal room, jamming odd-time based rock riffs and exploring the reduced setting of guitar and drums. Eventually, elements from free jazz and pop found their way into the music, with the addition of vocals and a synthesizer pushing them into a new territory. Think Hella, with a fair amount of songwriting, shreds and drones a la the Dirty Projectors, The Thing and Can. The unexpected twists and turns, huge dynamics and juggling of grittiness and sensitivity has an urban vibe and reflects Max and Daniel’s search for a way of living in the city.
Pranke EP was released on tape (incl. download) on Twaague Records in September 2015.

“We don’t suck, we blow!” bringen auch in die abgestandendsten Ecken traditioneller Genrezuweisungen friesisch-herben Wind. Die sechs Jungs aus Hamburg verbinden musikalischen Können auf höchstem Niveau mit urbanen Grooves von Drummachines und Samplern. Ihre Musik ist tanzbar, nahbar und unnachahmbar - der unverwechselbare Sound, der entsteht wenn wohldosierte Elektronik auf einfühlsame Melodien und technische Brillianz trifft, fegt auch noch den hartnäckigsten Kopfnicker vom Barhocker. Die Hornsection steht in bester Jazz-Tradition, während die Rhytmusgruppe auch bei den eckigsten Improvisationen straight bleibt.
