Tomaga (UK)

TOMAGA is two musicians actively deconstructing their normal sonic palette in search of a new and unfamiliar sound world. Having played as musicians for many years in bands such as Shit N Shine, The Oscillation, Neon Neon, Raime, Voice Of Seven Thunders, and countless others, TOMAGA channels various forms of multi-instrumentalism into music that moves by turns through industrial, jazz, psychedelia and minimalism, on it’s way to somewhere wholly other.

Rather than the complex, abstract sound that we might have expected to result from their totally unfettered musical explorations, the duo’s minimalist compositions are darkly psychedelic, elusive and deeply imbued with images – as though they have set some curiously unsettled, surreal dreams to music.


Eklin (NL)

Eklin is a five-piece that uses a traditional band line-up to reconstruct songs into haunting sound collages that are darkly upsetting, strangely familiar, yet surprisingly groovy. New material, new band members, first show in over two years!

Eklin are completely unique in style, and it’s almost impossible to pinpoint any of their musical influences.They’ve got this really ethereal, cavernous vibe going, sounding completely natural and organic almost always, with very minimal instrumentation… Eklin are an absolutely perfect machine when it comes to the rhythm section, with tightly syncopated percussion doing most of the work, deep pocket grooves, more then enough kraut-like pounding, and light, airy guitar flourishes that trickle down into the tiny cracks. Icy blue synths flow in and out of the songs smoothly, sounding like they’re underwater and rising to the surface… Some parts of Onwa are similar to the primitive minimalism of Gang Gang Dance, but even that comparison doesn’t do this justice. Eklin are definitely doing something painfully unique and fresh. - Cassette Gods

Eklin are a Dutch band who inhabit a sound space almost completely free from reference or genre specificity. There minimalist Kraut rock like rhythms pounds out deep melodic grooves… With the addition of glacial synths, extra percussion elements, and minimalist guitar flourishes, “Onwa” becomes an album of distinct voice and beauty that resides within a contemporary artistic originality that is rarely achieved by “new” music. - Night People

20 days later and I’m back in the States. Jet lagged. Inspired. Undoubtedly aged for the worse.

Generally speaking, the tour was an amazing time. John and I experienced our fair share of misfortune - we ran out of gas twice, destroyed a rear view mirror, kind of crashed into a toll, almost got hit by a bus in Newcastle on a one-way, etc., etc. - but on the whole, I made it out alive with some new friends and plenty of great (usually hazy) memories. I was also exposed to some exciting music along the way from Plug, Man With Feathers, Eklin and others.

On a work related note: Driving was a test at times with some record-breaking hangovers (Thanks Berlin and Hamburg!) and I’m certainly not in a hurry to sell merchandise again. Because guys, I don’t know where the fucking bathroom is andI don’t speak on John’s behalf about the manner of his live performances but he’s probably doing something right if you’re angry and confused and you’re the type of person who would berate the bewildered, drunk merchandise guy about it.

At the moment, I’m back in Minnesota zeroing in on my next move. I had a phone interview today with a company in Minneapolis and I have a writing assessment with a proctor tomorrow for a company based out of Madison, Wisconsin. The world doesn’t wait around for you while you’re away so I’m fortunate to have these opportunities after my three-week long gallivant.

It was nice to be forcibly disconnected from the Internet and my phone for so long but now it’s time to get back to work. As I sift through countless emails and search for a new apartment I realize that the time for tiddlywinks is through. It was a blast while it lasted.

Cheers to everyone I met along the way. Thanks for the conversations, drinks and the occasional mattress on the floor.

nevermind, if you’re not particularly familiar with the above names. i’m sure you agree to give credit to someone who says the following about his relation to music in a recent interview:

“i don’t listen to music on the computer or through [digital] devices. i want music to be as dictating of my attention as possible. music is like religion to me, like scripture, so i take it seriously.”
