Music Montag: Best of Berlin 2013

by James Glazebrook

What have EnyaFleetwood Mac, Chris Isaak, Rihanna, M.I.A, Destiny’s Child and Kendrick Lamar got in common? Nope, they haven’t formed a Gayngs-style supergroup (we wish!)… but all of them have had tracks covered or remixed by überlin’s Music Montag picks for 2013. Here’s two hours of our favourite music made in and about Berlin this year, from electro to acoustic, from heavy heavy metal to fat dirty bass. Enjoy 🙂

Feeling nostalgic? Listen to the Best of Berlin 2012 here.

Music Montag: Mara Simpson

by James Glazebrook

Phew! What a crazy weekend. Here’s some nice chilled out music to help ease you into the week. Mara Simpson is an English expat living in Berlin, inspired by fellow countrymen Zero 7 and Cinematic Orchestra, and singer-songwriter icon Janis Joplin. Check out her single “Fine Lines”, which is released on November 11th, and “The Lion and the Nomad”, recorded at the obligatory rooftop concert. If you like what you hear, catch Simpson live at Kugelbahn in Wedding on November 15th, or follow her on Facebook for more updates.
