Music Montag: Best of Berlin 2014

by James Glazebrook

There’s nothing like a Music Montag end of year playlist to make you realise just how diverse the Berlin music scene is! Bookended by classic Zoë favourites that drive home the dominance of the city’s clubbing industry, elsewhere this year’s Best of Berlin runs the gammut of genres. There’s electro pop, indie, weirdo synth explorations, progressive metal, a healthy chunk of Bowie covers… even a hilarious advertising jingle and a track from a rock opera for kids! Hope you enjoy this pick-and-mix of the most interesting music (mostly) produced in Berlin this year. Boom.

Want to walk your ears down memory lane? Check out the Music Montag: Best of Berlin 2013 and the best of 2012.

Music Montag: 19th Moon

by James Glazebrook

Nothing beats the rush of finding an exciting new artist to listen to, but sometimes that high is all-too-brief. Such was the case with 19th Moon, the US-born, Nigeria-bred and Berlin-based singer-songwriter we discovered on a recent edition of Expatriarch Radio.

We’ve already burned through the five tracks on her SoundCloud, which combine the moody introspection of The xx with the acoustic soul of India Arie and the avant-pop of Zola Jesus. At the time of writing, we’ve literally just missed a solo show by 19th Moon, so we’re going to keep an eye on her upcoming events for more. We suggest you do the same 😉
