Brabrabra album release show at Westgermany / Saturday, 19.05.2018
It’s finally time for Brabrabra’s first 7′ ‘Lagooona, recorded in Berlin in Dec 17 with Diego Ferri and mastered by Brian Pyle. ‘Lagooona’ consists of four songs, spacing from rough rock tunes to soft 70’s dreamy ballad, from weirdo dance music to funkisch minimalism-without problem — that’s their universal pop.
Brabrabra are a Berlin-based girl group. Susanna, Saiko, and Federica are three good friends that started to play together in Federica’s wohnzimmer just for fun. Their lives were weird enough that they could write songs about it, with irony, cynicism and tenderness together.
Brabrabra had their debut when Saiko’s brother, Tatsumi, unknowingly organized a gig for them in Feb 2012. After that, BBB played many shows, among them Torstrasse Festival 2013 for Network Awesome, with Maher Shalal, Hash Baz, and R Stevie Moore.
Their debut album ‘Mango’, released in Dec 2013, was also Kitchen Leg records’ first release. After a long hiatus, BBB toured Japan between March and April 2018, and recorded a 45′.
And here are some words of true love: “Playful, like 1979. Playful, like crafting beautiful sensitive slightly ironic pop music doesn’t have to be a chore. Playful, like Electrelane. Wild, like Tobi Vail.” (Everett True on Collapse Board, July 2014)
Tatsumi Ryusui is a Japanese-born, Berlin-based experimental/noise/ambient sound artist. He processes several proper, accidental or self-build instruments to generate delicate, yet powerful and astonishing ambient textures that connect drone with the cathartic side of noise.
Hit Gib is a tailor-made talisman raveling in easy innuendos, loquacious and spacious in its demands. Sick trips and time spend in lecherous congress, the focal point being a neurotic tightrope walk between the nothing chamber and the innocent air carved out of negative space.
