DES ARK // SISSTERS are playing live for you at IVI

presented by MISSY MAGAZINE



Des Ark
(Durham, North Carolina, USA)

“Des Ark has recruited an overwhelmingly devoted army of fans with their stripped down, take no prisoners live performances, and unique take on punk rock song writing. Des Ark delivers the intimidating sexual energy of PJ Harvey, the power of Shellac, and the song writing ability of Blonde Redhead. Des Ark is not a background music kind of band. Des Ark is a “Holy shit! This is crushingly sexy, intense, and intelligent!” kind of band.”


Schlagzeug, Gitarre und Gesang. Minimiert und Glücklich.
Eine Leichtigkeit strahlt die Musik der Berliner SISSTERS jedoch nicht unbedingt aus. Hier klingt es eher fragil und emotional. Zugleich jedoch brachial und wütend. SISSTERS spielen mit den Gegensätzen. Mal leise, mal laut. Mal melodisch, mal schräg. Am Ende kochen sie auch nur mit roten Fäden.
Im Surf Sound gebettete Rock Allüren verfangen sich bestimmt in irgendeinem Post- Genre Gewand. Irgendwie Grunge. Im Herzen Punk!
Glücklich zumindest in der Wahl der Besetzung. Nach jahrelanger Suche der idealen Instumentierung und eines angemessenen Ausdrucks scheinen SISSTERS nun an einem neuen Anfang geführt. Sie stolpern, aber glücklicherweise in die richtige Richtung.

feel cordially invited to our fav in march.

synthed-up psychadelic post-prog -- Ben Butler & Mousepad


personal cosmic vibrations -- Heatsick


live-geräusch minimalism -- DJ Zink Tonsur

Heatsick (Cocktail d´Amore, Pan Rec)

The sound of Heatsick comes from Steven Warwick of drone act Birds of Delay. Birds include Luke Younger and have toured the USA with Emeralds, opened for Sonic Youth and have several releases on various CDR and cassette labels including Alcoholic Narcolepsy, Warwick's own. 
Heatsick uses various instruments including voice, keyboard and percussion to create saturated washes of tone, floating and disintegrating entropic loops, while also using deliberately broken continuity as a playful, live conceptual gesture.
The project is focused on repetition as a means of creating abstraction, improvising with organic variations of a theme, yet embracing the artificial to facilitate a psychedelic mindshift. The music references a palette of sources from Musique Concrete and Psychedelia, through to the early Chicago House mix tapes, creating a unique and compelling sound.

Ben Butler and Mousepad (LOAF rec)

Ben Butler & Mousepad is Joe Howe, currently based in Glasgow, Scotland. He has produced weird, complex, synth-led music under a bunch of aliases, including GAY AGAINST YOU and GERMLIN. The last few years have seen Joe producing an album for MOMUS, working on an Opera in Berlin about WENDY CARLOS and rocking festivals, residencies and clubs through Europe, as well as remixing BLACK DEVIL DISCO CLUB, DEERHOOF, FULGEANCE, KLAXONS and THE CHAP (amongst others). 
As Ben Butler & Mousepad, he plays solo or in duo with Bastian Hagedorn on drums, under a proper prog-rock/ skwee influence which doesn’t forget fun.
