Vomit Heat and International Music are artistic relatives. Both come from the Ruhr area in Germany, both love psychedelic rock music and at the same time are also involved in avant-garde projects. Heute is something like a concept single, a multi-layered journey full of hints, references and danceable psychedelia.
The single is also available in all the usual portals like Spotify, iTunes and so on. The title track is taken from the upcoming Vomit Heat album Second Skin, to be released spring 2022.
Dear friends of absurd and leftfield music, lovers of Krautrock and free improvisation. Today we have a surprise release for you: “Hedi Spielt Kosmolin” by Nasssau. The cassette/digital version contains a mind-melting recording of this 8-piece supergroup (including members of Transport, Ludwig Wittbrodt, Vomit Heat, Gras, The Düsseldorf Düsterboys and more). Straight from the cosmos into your strained brains. Greetings and all the best to all you freaks out there!
Nasssau is an 8-piece improv band, formed in 2015 in the Makroscope Art Center in Mulheim a.d. Ruhr, Germany. Consisting of friends who’ve collaborated in a wide range of different musical styles and formations, Nasssau is the attempt to find an ever-changing and collective musical language.
mex is a non-profit-organization for intermedia and experimental music projects, located in Dortmund, Germany. Since 1992 more than 650 musicians and media artists from around the world presented their subtle, noisy, improvised or conceptual works.
The artists featured on this sampler were guests within the curation of Achim Zepezauer and performed live for the mex audience between 2013 & 2019. Due to global pandemic conditions mex was unable to host any concerts in 2020 and therefore decided to release this special compilation.
The album contains tracks by Jasmine Guffond, John Bischoff, Ragnhild May, Svarte Greiner, Claus van Bebber, Krachkisten Orchester, Tina Tonagel, Achim Zepezauer, Seiji Morimoto, David Toop and Phill Niblock.
