Keshavara’s Kabinett der Phantasie

Keshavara make music like other people make cocktails after already drinking three: Portions of synth-pop, hip-hop, krautrock and elements of classical Indian music are poured together and given a good shake. Keshav Purushotham’s surrealistic humor frames the mix like sugar on the rim of the glass, and it’s all topped by a parasol of the overarching narrative of Kabinett der Phantasie, the group’s second album for a fantasmorgiastic party full of transcultural clashes.

Ale Hop

Ale Hop builds sound sculptures from pop fragments, field recordings and noise. In her concerts, she uses guitar, synthesizer and real-time sampling to create music that achieves immediate physical effects. The co-curator of the Radical Sounds of Latin America festival has released three solo albums to date. On them, she develops a signature in the interplay of melody and rhythm, melody and noise, thinking of musical confrontation as a condition for emotional intimacy. Even in her noisiest moments, Ale Hop remains approachable and poignant.
