Sons of Settlers - Hermanus Craft Beer Festival

Hermanus, Craft Beer, and Sons of Settlers

The Hermanus Craft Beer Festival is returning on 22 December to mix beer and music, and Sons of Settlers is one of the bands on this year’s line-up. They describe their sound as “high-energy melodic folk, and will be appearing at the Hermanus Craft Beer Festival. We spoke to one half of the duo, Le-Roi Nel, about the band, the beer fest, and Berlin.

The Flow Chats 009: Morné du Toit

The Flow Chats 009: Morné du Toit

Morné du Toit het eers my aandag gevang as die ou in die tamatiesousadvertensie wat fluit wanneer hy sê “thirty-six”. Nou maak hy ook flieks, en sy derde een as regisseur, Vuil Wasgoed, begin op 8 Desember in teaters draai. Ek’t met hom gaan gesels oor alles van skilder in Melville kelders, aksente aansit as jy kos bedien, flieks maak vir kinders, en flieks maak waarvoor kinders eerder ‘n paar jaar moet wag.

Pollinator

Pollinator is excited for Park Acoustics like matrics before the ball

Pollinator is a three-piece rock band from Joburg, and they’ll be making a debut Park Acoustics appearance this Sunday. After we spotted them playing in dresses at Oppikoppi this year (they wanted to look like they were off to a matric dance), we couldn’t resist asking them about balls, music, and mating calls.

Maribou State

Maribou State talks about coming to South Africa

You might’ve heard that the English electronic duo Maribou State is coming down south (to SA) for a couple of DJ sets – one in Johannesburg and one in Cape Town. DJMag.com once described their music as “sparkles like Zero 7, gnaws like Portishead, and grooves like Primal Scream”. And I couldn’t yet find a different verb to better describe what their music does.

Since they’re headed over for a visit, I spoke to them about their music, their trip, and their studio process…

We asked him a few questions about his love for Led Zep, what it takes to put on a tribute show to a legendary rock band, and what we can expect on the night…

Maddy Behrens

Artist Spotlight: Maddy Behrens

Making it in the music industry is hard. In South Africa, even harder. The scene is small, good (paying) venues are scarce, and it takes time and hard work to get on to a festival line-up. Living for the music isn’t free.

Enter Maddy Behrens, a folk/pop musician reminiscent of Gabrielle Aplin and Lisa Mitchell.  The young musician traded her busking corners of KwaZulu-Natal for the hustle and bustle of the big city to pursue a career in music full time. And she’s not losing any momentum. We caught up with her on the cusp of her second Oppikoppi performance.

Less Wes Anderson, more Wes Craven.

Introducing Van Pletzen

‘n “Kak lekke vibe” – Van Pletzen kom Oppikoppi toe

Van Pletzen is ‘n Afrikaanse feel-goed band wat bestaan uit Matthieu Auriacombe (aka Nik-Nax, van Beach Party, Hello Beautiful, en Kidofdoom) en Peach van Pletzen (van Yesterday’s Pupil en Bittereinder). Hulle maak musiek met ‘n redelike unieke, humor-belaaide aanslag, en stel hul liedjies vry saam met gestileerde musiekvideos. Ons het met Peach gaan gesels oor die groep se oorsprong, hul debuut by Oppikoppi, en wat nog voorlê.
