Still Corners to play @ UT Connewitz, April 14th ´22

on their way to Leipzig 
in april 2022

"Still Corners announce new album ‘The Last Exit’, out 22nd January 2021 via Wrecking Light Records. THE LAST EXIT is the fifth studio album from Still Corners, which will be released on 22nd January 2021 on Wrecking Light Records.
With the shimmering desert noir sound the band has become known for, THE LAST EXIT takes you on a hypnotic journey, one filled with dilapidated towns, mysterious shapes on the horizon, and long trips that blur the line between what’s there and not there. Greg says, “We found something out there in the desert – something in the vast landscapes that went on forever."
THE LAST EXIT consists of eleven beautifully crafted songs with organic instrumentation, cl-toned guitar, spacious drums and the smoky croon of Tessa Murray. Album highlights include “The Last Exit”, “White Sands” and “Shifting Dunes” all of which evoke the vast space of the desert and rolling unconcerned skies.
The album was brought further into focus by the pandemic when almost everything was forced to stop. Tessa explains, “There's always something at the end of the road and for us it was this album. Our plans were put on hold – an album set for release, tours, video shoots, travel. We’d been touring nonstop for years, but we were forced to pause everything. We thought the album was finished but with the crisis found new inspiration and started writing again.”
It was in this context that songs like ‘Crying’, ‘Static”, ‘Till We Meet Again’ were written, reflecting on the impact of isolation and the need for social contact and intimacy.
First single, ‘The Last Exit’ is the final chapter of the Still Corners’ Road Trilogy. What began with ‘The Trip’ and was followed by ‘The Message’ concludes with the stunning ‘The Last Exit’. The video, inspired by the 1975 film Picnic at Hanging Rock, finds Tessa pulled into the mysterious rocks of Joshua Tree.
Tessa explains -
"In a world where everyone thinks all the corners of the map are filled in we like to suggest there's something beyond that, something eternal in the landscape and in our psyche. Maybe you don't see it every day but it's there and that's what we are trying to connect to."
With a galloping beat, teardrop vocals and silver-tone guitar, The Last Exit races down a lonely highway to destination unknown. Elegant and searching with a grand piano ending, The Last Exit will remind you of another world beyond the one you see." (Still Corners Press Kit)

Black Marble (Sacred Bones) • Leipzig, 21.04.2022

UT Connewitz & Annihilate present:
Black Marble
- Sacred Bones -


The synth-pop grammar that dictates Black Marble’s music is strict and specific. The project formed as a duo in 2012 but eventually pared down to lone member Chris Stewart; throughout, its output has been uniformly composed of the same carefully curated elements. The instruments are hulking hardware synths and drum machines that hum when they power up. Fluid, melodic bass lines immediately recall New Order, but only the dour churn of Movement, and nothing as bouncy as Power, Corruption and Lies or later albums. Hints of the Cure are limited to the floating whispers of Seventeen Seconds. The crumbling production values are inspired by obscure ’80s minimal-wave artists like Iron Curtain; a detached romanticism can be traced from choice moments in the early OMD catalog. Applying this rigid aesthetic to Stewart’s pop-minded songwriting makes Black Marble one of the more disarmingly catchy bands to bear the coldwave tag.

+ support

FB Event

Abgesehen vom Tag der Arbeit feiert This is the Kit am 01.Mai ihr Leipzig-Debüt im UT Connewitz. Die Folkband aus UK um die Singer-Songwriterin Kate Stables ist schon seit einigen Jahren in der europäischen Folkszene angekommen. Glastonbury Festival, RBC Blues Fest, Calgary Folk Music Festival und Eden sind nur einige der großen Shows, die sie 2019 zu verbuchen hat. Bei ihren Auftritten lädt sie mit vereinnahmenden Melodien und raffiniertem Folk zum Träumen ein. Was bleibt, ist eine ausdrucksvolle Musik verpackt in einem doch so schüchternen Ausdruck. Aufgrund der notgedrungenen Pause 2020 geht sie im kommenden Frühling mit ihrem Album „Off Off On“ auf Tournee.
