Sets the Sun Play
The Host Sets the Sun (3:39)
Alternative Rock
Sometimes it does not require many words - as in this epic song. I was immediately hooked when I heard it in 2007 for the first time. And today, after the rediscovery of it, "Sets The Sun" is playing over and over again. Grandiose work! more...

Thomas Play
Payola Thomas (4:22)
Alternative Rock
"Look at this, you whole boring guitar-bands: So much eagerness, generated by three people…" (Michael Kolepke/BeSonic editorial). In fact, considering what this gifted trio from Manchester / UK celebrates here between RADIOHEAD, THE SMITHS and MUSE - this crunchy statement above might be all... more...

disorganize Play
The Mint disorganize (3:56)
Indie Rock
This talented combo from Berlin/Germany already emerged quite positive on BeSonic with their much-noticed "The Empire of the Sun" and - to anticipate it right away: "Disorganize" as well convinces all along the line. A solemn-melancholic, but still powerful Alternative Pop-stomper somewhere... more...

How Low Play
Sally Snow How Low (3:20)
Indie Rock
Maybe you know this, too: you hear a song for the first time and get the feeling like you always knew this one? Maybe it’s this swinging groove getting across, as if the FOO FIGHTERS met the QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE on an off-the-cuff Garage-happening. Melancholic and yet so uplifting -... more...

Down Play
REEBOSOUND Down (2:27)
Indie Rock
Small but mighty neo-Garage tune by the sympathetic German multi-instrumentalist Sven Missullis aka REEBOSOUND. Leisure, unpretentious, yet uplifting and exciting. Nice. more...

Working Undercover Play
The Host Working Undercover (4:28)
Indie Rock
Attention, dear Alternative Rock-fans! Here comes a damn tight mixture of TOOL and THE MARS VOLTA from Cincinnati, Ohio (USA). Interesting, varied and sophisticated - but not plethoric arrangement meets soulful winner-voice between Cedric Bixler-Zavala and Geddy Lee(!) and this together results... more...

Always Keep Them Guessing Play
Megan Paige Always Keep Them Guessing (3:37)
Indie Rock
Cool mixture of Indie Pop and Motown Soul: ".. the girl next door is kicking in our doors and telling us like it is". Can be confirmed definitively. MEGAN PAIGE from New Jersey comes up neither top-heavy, nor with an annoying, exaggerated AMY WINEHOUSE-diva-attitude, but keeps her stuff... more...

Subconscious Healing Play
VooDooStash Subconscious Healing (3:08) 
Gothic
"Ohio is a Dark Place!" - How dark Ohio actually can get.. VOODOOSTASH deal with it: "Holy shit, you fused goth with stoner rock and it sounds amazing." Brute, lofi-as-lofi-can-get and with a neat portion of Garage Punk, the boys blow up the dust, but one has to note that the sound quality here... more...

Arcadevegeta Pale (4:11)

Lost all control Play
Preacher Lost all control (1:26)
Hardcore Punk
Uncompromising Oldschool-HC/Punk in yer face. Brute, fast, direct and without any frills. Maybe this band is just so much fun, because they do not even approach in any way trying to sound "modern" or "contemporary". more...

The Disko Inferno Play
Uberkid The Disko Inferno (2:53)
Screamo
A real dirty one these guys bring up here. Brute, but fragile somewhere, melodic and emotionally imbalanced - "The Disco Inferno" scores just in a similar way as their "Yesterday at the movies" - perhaps with a small portion of more Punk-snot-feeling included. In any case, not only interesting... more...

Uberkid Yesterday At The Movies (3:54)
Screamo
Melodic-driving Screamo (although I personally prefer to often call it Alternative Rock or
likewise Punkrock) from Hanover/Berlin. Definitions and demarcations to and fro.. "Yesterday at the Movies" convinces with catchyness, rough emotiveness and - what might be certainly attractive for... more...

Hardcore Punk
Tight oldschool-HC-punk-wingding from Hamburg/Germany with christian attitude(!) and
uncompromisingly compact song arrangement in yer face. 0:38 seconds may suffice to spit into the world what you do not need the very clear way. This used to work back in the old MINOR THREAT and DISCHARGE... more...

Cologne/Germany with it's cream o' the crop in Alternative Rock: "Recall" comes down to business as a tricky SOUNDGARDEN-Groover without beating around the bush.

My Voice Play
tomcatz My Voice (4:03)
Alternative Rock
Very nice Indie-Rock/Pop from Germany - sweet and with a lot of heart and soul. Musically played out here somewhere between the PIXIES and the SMASHING PUMPKINS, beautifully airy with a slightly psychedelic touch - wonderful. An additional chalk up for the sunglasses!

Mongrel Welcome The Changes (3:12)
Ska Punk
Encouraged, uplifting, catchy mixture of Skatepunk, Ska and Hardcore from Munich/Germany to get kicks out of it. Equipped with a certain Pop-appeal without making too much leeway into clichés .. and yes, still carrying enough
energy inside to kick asses. Danceable AND killing doesn`t... more...

Colt UK Black Rabbits (4:18)
Alternative
"Black Rabbits" goes deep. Over a sparse, minimal Electronica-scenery a soul-stirring voice between GOLDFRAPP, PORTISHEAD and KATE BUSH (!) celebrates bittersweet melancholy and a genuine feeling of torn inwardness without endeavored or insincere pathos. COLT push forward - far into the heart of... more...

Ska
".. Instead of hyper-intellectual sound collages Captain Zorx Stimmungsattacke play quite danceable crossover music in the truest sense of the word. So, there may follow a cool 80s Hip Hop tune on a Gospel track performed with heart`s blood, chilling Reggae explodes in a Heavy Metal onslaught.”... more...
