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: Milwalkie’s new video for “Black Alexander”

by James Glazebrook

Our favourite Berlin-based Scottish brothers are back! Milwalkie have just released the video for the lead track from their new album, which follows the boys on a sun-drenched trip through Berlin – along S-Bahn tracks, across overgrown, junk-strewn wasteland and into graffiti-covered abandoned buildings. This is sure to delight fans of this great city, ginger-tinged beards and jangly indie pop alike. Enjoy “Black Alexander” and stay tuned to Milwalkie’s Facebook page to find out where to pick up Adjustments, released next week.

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 🙂
