These mean sons of a gun are coming over to PRIVATCLUB in a week! (yay)

pillow talk:

“My love has abandonment issues.
My love hates sleeping alone.
My love, a clenched fist around your
heart; yes, my love is that terrifying
because it doesn’t know release.
Imagine the moon, how she sets the ocean
free to spill over distant shorelines only to
clutch it back to her chest again and again.
We call this ‘tide’.
We call it ‘gravitational pull’.
My love is like that —
desperate, unapologetic.
Except they don’t write scientific theories
around my love; this swelling in my chest
is too big to be understood.
Big enough to have its own gravity
and some nights, even strong enough
to pull you back into my arms.”
—Anita Ofokansi

“But remember, there are two ways to dehumanize someone: by dismissing them, and by idolizing them.”
—Dave Wong

La Femme waren in Hamburg im Kleinen Donner. Sechs schöne Pariser inmitten einer Sinfonie von Lo-Fi, New Wave und Surf. La Femme kreieren eine ganz besondere, unvergleichliche Stimmung, untermalt mit elektronischen Klängen aus einer fünften Dimension. Surf und Psyche-Rock sind etwas Französisches. La Femme erfinden Cold Wave neu. Das Publikum ist gefesselt von curtisèsquen Tanzbewegungen, von hypnotisierendem Gesang und feinsinniger Instrumentalgebung. Die Nacht steht ganz unter dem Motto Psycho Tropical Hamburg, alles fühlt sich richtig an. Unwillkürlich muss man an Kraftwerk oder Stereolab denken, an die experimentellen 80er und 90er. An eine wundebare, bizarre, bedeutungsvolle Schönheit. La Femme sind fesselnd, einzigartig und sind Kreateure eines neuen Gefühls, das sich nicht beschreiben lässt. Sie erschaffen etwas Großes. Si un jour von La Femme.

La Femme were in the club Kleiner Donner in Hamburg. Six handsome Parisiens in the midst of a symphony of Lo-Fi, New Wave and Surf. La Femme create quite a special, incomparable atmosphere, accompanied with electronic sounds from a fifth dimension. Surf and psyche-rock are so French. La Femme invent Cold wave anew. The audience is rivetted by curtisèsque dance moves, by hypnotising singing and subtle instrumental sounds. The night is completely themed Psycho Tropical Hamburg, everything feels alright. They remind me of Kraftwerk or Sterolab, of the experimental 80s and 90s; of a delightful, bizarre, meaningful beauty. La Femme are captivating, unique and créateurs of a new feeling which can’t be described by simple words. They create something big. Si un jour by La Femme.
