7 of the strangest musical duets

Inspired by the strange duet of Kesha and Iggy Pop, the editors of the German branch of Rolling Stone magazine wondered what other dubious musical collaborations were.

Having rummaged through the archives, they compiled a list including Willy Nelson in collaboration with Snoop Dogg, Kylie Minogue in a duet with the frog Kermit, Frank Sinatra with Bono, and others.

You can look to the future with hope. Interview with Neon Lights

The St. Petersburg electronic duo Neon Lights was created by two music critics Yevgeny Lazarenko and Max Hagen, in response to the many cries of offended musicians “first try, then criticize.”

Neon Lights is a vibrant new-wave dance project that sounds equally good both on the festival stage and in the club space, and even from the disc of a beginner DJ in a bar on Dumskaya Street.

On the eve of the band’s performance on May 10, BritishWave.ru talked to the musicians in the new club’s “Sputnik” hall A2, asking them about festivals, the future of the music scene in Russia, and also learned the formula for a successful group.

Today he got even more tired when our keyboard player, returning from a forced link, began to push ideas on how to get to Moscow. I don’t know what I Continue reading

The Next Great Phenomenon: Interview with Wolf Alice

Not so long ago, stepping out of teens, in 2013 Wolf Alice with a handful of songs turned the music world upside down. While the label “grunge” stuck to them from the very beginning, on their debut album “My Love Is Cool” they finally blurred the boundaries between genres.

Michaela Gladovich met with vocalist Ellie Rousell and drummer Joel Emey in Berlin and interviewed.

Another young British indie band, from which, after a couple of EPs, all music critics just write boiling water. Magazines and blogs show off their accolades, the BBC in 2013 called Wolf Alice “the most-write-about-blogging group.” A year later, they received the “Best New Artist” award at the UK Festival Awards. With their first longplay “My Love Is Cool”, Ellie Rousell (guitar, vocals), Joff Oddi (guitar), Theo Ellis Continue reading
