Kinolectro – Hey Eve
“‘Hey Eve’ is a song off Kinolectro’s album ‘Classic Kino Style’. The song is a new-wavey/gothic song centered around the story of Adam & Eve. That’s what you hear and your eyes widen. KINOLECTRO makes you transform into another kind of animal. And it’s okay to do so. You have permission to do exactly that. The Hollywood California based band is the combination of art-tastic and musically gifted duos of Dakota Blue and Jenny Nirgends. An operatic story telling vibe that takes you on a journey of discovery, as always, the duo clings to an understated artillery of sounds – muted, dark, unconventional. Adam & Eve could use some pointers from Kinolectro.
Karl Jakob – My love belongs to everyone
Always surprising, and always distinctive, KARL JAKOB takes a more conventional, but none the less, exciting pop direction in this alternative experience of sounds. The electro vibes sharpen with the customary lyrical visions of the talented Karl’s brain. The emotional convulsions come out of a bubble of dissemination and unfathomable story telling. The husk of humanity retains in Karl’s works, whatever styles and genres he uses, or not. The artist’s efforts of late has been spanning life-times of personalities and we sometimes are very much surprise at why more people don’t know his name. A complete composer of songs, his ability to adapt to direction is uncanny. ‘My Love Belongs To Everyone’ is a scary example of the fabulous executive chef-like skills in wave after wave of musical arts. Karl Tore Jakob Stenseke is the project Karl Jakob, and he is a music producer and philosopher born in Sweden. Between 2009-2012 he played guitar and saxophone in the grammy nominated band Zekes. In 2012 he released his first self-produced indie pop album as The Key Key. He has also released two LPs and one EP with psychedelic/electronic indie-pop duo Feelium.
