The super-group 5K HD from Vienna travel from Jazz to Pop to Electronica with ease, They remind us very much of Portishead, while they are still creating their very own sound. We feel so honored to welcome our first Austrian musicians as our Artists of the Week #31.
Not My Circus, the band of our Artist of the Week David Ernsberger, makes alt-pop songs with folk-tinged vocal harmonies skipping over a freak show of psych-blues riffs, soulful bass grooves, wonky funk beats and warm electronic textures. A white-knuckle ride to the edge of your musical map, and back again.
Besides David, members of the band are Jake Alexander, Sally Fazakerley, Ben Gibson and Benja Bravo. Although they are based in Madrid, Spain, they origin from four different continents.
Eli Schafernak under his pseudonym Schaf is our very productive Artist of the Week #20. Eli is a musician, music producer and photographer from Chicago, Illinois.
Schaf’s music is influenced by Electronic, Disco, Funk and Dubstep, sometimes more in one direction, sometimes in the other.
Buy his album Summer Nights on iTunes.
