Halbtal, Labasheeda (NL) & The Somnambulist @ K19

A challinging night of postpunk,mathrock, experimental rock and psychedelic rock.

Beginn um 20:00 Uhr | Einlass um 19:00


HALBTAL: Musikalisch heimatlos zapfen Halbtal Genres wie Postpunk, Math, Krautrock oder Electronica an. Und was dabei rauskommt, wird zum widerborstigen Experiment erklärt, zur offenen Frage des Fragments. Eine aufpeitschende Rhythmusgruppe und fiebrig-flirrende Gitarren verhindern jede Stagnation. Es ist Musik auf der ewigen Suche nach der gelben Blume im Klatschmohnfeld, nach Trockenheit am Meeresgrund.


LABASHEEDA is an idiosyncratic rocktrio from Amsterdam. Tying together two decades of adventurous, sound-evolving albums and changing lineups, Labasheeda’s music has a penchant for concise, stripped down melodies, and quick switches from spacious bass lines and drums to heavy, chaotic, and sometimes anthemic guitar driven songs. The unorthodox use of violin, the often deviating time signatures and Saskia van der Giessen’s distinctive voice give the band its unique sound.

In November 2023 Labasheeda released its sixth full-length album Blueprints, which has been has been described as an innovative post-punk masterpiece by the international press.

“It’s just at the point where rock and roll tips over into noise, where melody turns into sonic soundscaping and where song structure becomes untethered and unruly, that you find Labasheeda”
(The Big Take Over magazine)


THE SOMNAMBULIST is a Berlin based music project with an ongoing history of more than ten years, which combines the input of an international musicians’ collective with unique, ever changing interpretations of their own work. Their intent to both respectfully acknowledge and surpass definitions and boundaries of genres are a key element as to why it seems difficult, even nonsensical to attach a singular style to their work. If pinned down, they have been known to combine characteristics from Psychedelic and Alternative Rock to elements of Jazz, Experimental and Classical Music.

„Some More Songs Lost in Themselves“ is the first release of two brand new EPs featuring the first new studio material since the release of „Hypermnesiac“ in 2020: six impressionistically brief songs that develop and refine the band’s path undertaken in the preceding album of simplification, synthesis and innovation of their language; featuring more accessible, direct and effective musical solutions, while retaining the courage, tension and sense of fracture typical of their previous works.

„The Berlin-based trio defies musical classification, and it’s all by design. They are some of the most authentic musicians you’ll ever find, always reaching for new heights of originality and creativity every time they set out to record new music.“ V13.net
